I explained earlier tricks to get Black Friday items without having to get up early and stand in line. If you decide to do any Black Friday shopping, here are the things that you can get for free. All the items listed below are “Free After Rebate”
Understanding Free After Rebate: This is where you initially pay for the product and then are able to send in some type of proof of purchase (this usually consists of the product’s bar code with the store’s receipt) to get your money back. While these are a great deal if you actually go through all the steps to get your rebate, a lot of people think they will, but don’t in the end.
It’s also important to read the fine print and terms before making the purchase. There is a good chance there are some restrictions which can make getting the rebate difficult. You want to take the time to know that you’ll qualify for the rebate and can receive it with relatively little work before you purchase the item. If you don’t, you may find that the freebie is not so free after all.
One issue to be careful about is whether the original receipt is required for the rebate. If this is the case, you want to purchase the “free after rebate” item by itself in a single transaction and not with other free after rebate items. (For example, if you get four “free after rebate” items, you’d want them each rung up separately at the cash register so that you had an original receipt for each)
Those items that aren’t free after rebate will be noted with an (*) which means they usually require a purchase of some type in order to get the freebie.
