What is a Best Buy Rebate?

If you've never taken advantage of a rebate before, you may be wondering what a rebate is. Rebates are cashback offers that companies make as buyer incentives. Unlike other discounts that are taken off at the register or before online transactions are closed, rebates are savings that you claim after your purchase is finished and you've already brought your goods home. Rebates are typically offered by:

  • Product manufacturers
  • Utility companies
  • State or federal government agencies

Given that Best Buy isn't classified as any of its entities, Best Buy rebates don't come from this company itself. Instead, when you shop online or in a Best Buy store, you'll have access to a generous array of rebate offers that are related to the products that it carries. Best Buy goes out of its way to make finding rebate offers that you're qualified for easy. If you plan on buying electronics, appliances, or any other items from a Best Buy store, you can use the Best Buy Rebate Finder Tool to locate any post-sale cashback offers that you're qualified for.
