How to Ensure Successful Slickdeals Rebate Submissions

Follow these steps to make sure your rebate doesn't get rejected.
Slickdeals content may contain references to products from one or more of our affiliate partners. If you make a purchase on their site through a link on Slickdeals, we receive a small commission. This in no way affects our opinions on products or services mentioned in our content.

In 2014 we launched our very own rebates program to make some of the great deals on our site even better, and to help solidify Slickdeals as the best deal site on the Web. We wanted to create more “fire” deals by providing some icing on the cake, if you will. Every day, our editors come across deals that are almost good enough to make the frontpage. Sometimes, when we find such a deal, we are able to add a rebate to make it even slicker.

A Universal Product Code (UPC) is a unique barcode with a set of numbers that uniquely identifies a retail product. UPC barcodes generally appear on the retail package, but the placement can be slightly different for each retailer. Examples of UPC barcodes can be seen here and here. If you're unsure of whether or not the barcode you are submitting is for the product you purchased, we recommend you looking up the set of numbers on Google to confirm.

For the PayPal rebates, we’re typically dealing with services. Since you don’t get a UPC from services, we are relying on affiliate tracking to ensure that you completed your purchase. If you’re logged into your SD account we can decipher which username was used to make the purchase, and if you provide us with an appropriate email address we can use that to issue the rebate.

We highly recommended that you create an account on the site you're ordering from before buying anything. It will allow you to keep better records of your purchases and easily reference the orders. A detailed 4myrebate FAQ can be found here.

If you want to email us with questions about a rebate, please make sure you enter the following into the subject line:

Subject: Problem with <Merchant Name> Rebate for SKD-##### (offer ID)
Example: Problem with Dell Rebate for SKD-10031
For the body of the email, please include a short description of your problem along with your rebate tracking number so we can forward this over to our rebate processor. All rebate inquiries should be sent to rebates@slickdeals.net.

Below you will find the required steps to ensure a successful rebate submission for each merchant. If you don’t follow all the necessary steps listed, it’s very likely your rebate will be denied.

We implore you to send your rebates with a trackable delivery confirmation. If it accidentally gets lost in the mail, there is little we can do about it unfortunately.
