Make your own fillable rebate
First, you will need Foxit reader. The free download can be found here . I use this as my default reader because it is faster and lighter than Adobe reader. Anyway, Foxit reader allows you to modify a pdf by adding fillable elements. It is actually Foxit's way of letting you preview features that are offered in their non-free packages. Since it is only a preview feature, the catch is that if you try to save the pdf you have made fillable, it adds an overlay comment saying something about being created with Foxit.
To make a fillable rebate, open the rebate pdf with Foxit reader. Then, select Tools>Advanced Editing Tools. There, you will see the various elements you can add, such as text boxes and check boxes. From here, you'll just have to experiment around to get the different elements just right on the page, but it is no harder than working with a word processor. I will mention that while you are editing the elements, you cannot fill them. You have to click on the hand button and then click on the field to perform your filling action. If something doesn't look right (e.g. font size is too small), just go back to Tool>Advanced Editing Tools and select one of the elements you want to fix to get back into the editing mode. When you have everything the way you want it, fill the fields and print. So long as you don't save, the print out will not have the overlay comment mentioned above.
One last thing. It is sometimes necessary to zoom in on an area of the pdf to get the fillable element tweaked just right. For example, if you want to add a check box, sometimes the element check box cannot be made smaller than the pdf check box. In this case, zoom in on the pdf check box. The element check box will also now be larger, but it can then be resized to fit in the pdf check box area.
Hope this helps someone. I always appreciate when people provide fillable rebates for deals. I have become dependent on them. My handwriting is so bad that I set out to find a way to make my own fillable rebate when one isn't posted. That way, I can't get rejected for a rebate on the grounds that my form was illegible. My handwriting is probably not that bad, but a filled rebate looks very nice. When a rebate processor sees one of these, they would have to know you mean business, so it might reduce the chance of having your rebate rejected for some bogus reason.
