How to Claim Your Honeywell Thermostat Rebate

Savvy shoppers can save significant money over time by finding and taking advantage of discount opportunities. Generally used at the time of purchase, tools such as paper and online coupons, temporary sale prices, and other discounts are constantly available.

Rebate deals are available for Goodyear tires, Michelin tires, Home Depot purchases, and Verizon phones. Even something as familiar and straightforward as a home thermostat could bring you money. Certain Honeywell thermostats offer helpful rebates after purchase.

can be time-consuming to pursue on our own, however–let us do the legwork and get that money back into your pocket.

How Does the Honeywell Thermostat Rebate Work?

Although Honeywell does not directly offer rebates for its thermostat products, it works with utility companies across the country to extend the rebate provided to you.

What Rebates Are Offered?

Local utilities each offer their rebate deals. Follow these steps to discover deals in your area:

  1. Visit the Honeywell Home page
  2. Type your zip code into the Search For Rebates box
  3. Click the magnifying glass on the right side of the box to search for offers
  4. Scroll through the results list below the box

You should see a list of local utilities and the deals they can provide you. The list may include rebate offers and may consist of other deals that require you to sign up for programs to help save energy.

What Types of Rebates Are There?

There are several types of rebates.

Instant rebateThis is a marketing approach wherein a product is offered at a discounted price applied at the point of purchase. Instant rebates are handled upon purchase, so the refund is available immediately.
Mail-in rebateThe most frequent type of rebate is a mail-in rebate, which differs from quick refunds in that it requires you to take action for the refund to be processed. You must give any information necessary for the rebate, which often consists of your phone number, name, address, and a receipt. When it comes to mail-in refunds, there is a deadline by which the rebate has to be sent or received. This deadline is usually 30 days after the purchase, and reimbursement is generally issued within 12 weeks.
Product mix incentiveSuppliers may offer a refund based on total spending overtime to entice buying groups and distributors to buy various items. This type of rebate is used to sway buyers away from other suppliers for other product lines where buyers generally purchase only a few products.
Central distribution center rebateSome suppliers prefer to distribute to centralized distribution centers to save money on logistics. They leave the buyer with the cost and responsibility of distributing their CDCs' products to their branches and buyers. So this will save you some money if you choose to distribute it for the company.
Growth incentiveA rebate based on incremental order growth is frequently used when a supplier wants to increase overall volume rather than just personal order volume.

This might be in the manner of a year-over-year goal, with a supplier rebate if the volume purchased surpasses the growth baseline. This can be problematic for purchasing groups or multi-branch operations, as it can be difficult to aggregate total expenditure by product line from the prior year.

How Do I Apply for a Rebate?

To take advantage of a rebate offer:

  1. Review all offers from the list after completing the zip code search
  2. Choose an offer that includes the word rebate
  3. Click the offer to see rebate details.

Note that many offers will include the words "online rebate" or "point of sale rebate." Some examples from various states include:

  • ONCOR Online Rebate
  • Wise Electric Cooperative Rebate
  • Arizona Public Service (APS) Online Rebate
  • Salt River Project (SRP) Point of Sale Rebate
  • Dominion Energy Virginia Online Rebate

Which Thermostats Qualify for Rebates?

Each utility spells out its requirements for eligible thermostat models when clicking on an offer. Follow the instructions listed in the offer to discover which models may work for you. For instance:

  • The Arizona Public Service Online Rebate is available for specific Honeywell Home models purchased from the APS MarketPlace.
  • The Tampa Electric Online Rebate is offered for any Smart Thermostat with the Energy Star label.
  • Wisconsin Public Service extends a rebate offer for any unit on their eligible product list.

How Much Do Rebates Pay?

As each utility offer is unique, the amount of the rebate varies. They typically range anywhere from $30 to $100. Consult your specific offer for details.

How Do I Collect Rebate Money?

Although this varies from one program to the next, payment is often made in a gift card or a check that arrives by mail in 6 to 8 weeks. In some cases, fees may simply be applied as a credit toward your utility bill.

What Does It Take To Apply for Most Rebates?

Follow the instructions for the rebate offer you have chosen. Typically, an online application must be filled out and submitted. Information for the application may include items such as:

  • Utility customer information
  • Payee information
  • Summary of the rebate
  • Terms and conditions
  • Application review and submission confirmation

In some cases, additional documentation may be required. Examples include:

  • Paid receipt or invoice showing retailer or contractor name, price, date, and model information
  • Photo of Energy Star label
  • Photo of thermostat installed on a wall
