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.
