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.

Once you signup for the rebate/fill out your information, you can get yourself a copy emailed as pdf, or just print it out on the page.

For hp rebate, should we cut out just the UPC barcode or we need to include the whole proof of purchase label?

Is it possible to apply for rebate after price matching an item? Say price match a Dell purchase from Walmart and still be eligible for rebate.

Issue with that is then you're not buying on hp.com but via chat or phone, which is not allowed, so I would not recommend it

I received the the box with shipment labels pasted right on top of the UPC sticker. I am unable to remove the shipping label. My attempts already erased a small portion of UPC label. Now what would you suggest me to do so that I can still qualify for the rebate?

I just received my order shipment from Dell for a Samsung TV.

I see the UPC code, but the barcodes on the box don't match the code. Per requested in the rebate form that (proof of purchase) barcode label is on the box, it does not match the code.

Am I able to just send in the code? Or should I just go ahead and send all the barcodes in the mail. I don't want any risk or delay in this rebate as it is a lot of money.

NEVERMIND*** I just found the UPC barcode. It was actually UNDER ALL THE STICKERS! Would slickdeals still accept the UPC Code? I am too scared to peel it off as the barcode is very sensitive.

HOW COULD THEY DO THAT?!?! I was on dell chat support for 4 hours and samsung chat support for 3 hours trying to figure out where the UPC barcode was located.

I'm honestly just thinking about returning the product itself to take the safer route of this issue.

Well I ordered the small desktop at 6 p.m. after the Slickdeals rebate post at 11:32 a.m.from that link. It did not show the SKU on my order form but I figured it would show on the invoice after shipment...it didn't.

The Slickdeals Post ​Aug. 24, 2015 at 11:32am
deal [dell.com]

$389.99 - $160 w/ coupon code 7F$7G6ZKJ6$0WP - $90 Slickdeals rebate [4myrebate.com] = $139.99 + free shipping

PO Number: PO Number Not SuppliedSubtotal:$229.99
Shipping & Handling:$0.00
Shipping Discount Applied:$15.00
Sales Tax:$0.00
Total Amount:$229.99

So I email Slickdeals rebates telling them my dilemma and this is my reply.
Hi,


If you clicked on the link from the post, the SKU would have shown up as one of the line item "Miscellaneous Slickdeal Rebate". Prior to purchasing the item, you are able to "View and Print Details" of the item. A new window will pop up and show the individual items that are part of the product. Without the SKU listed on the invoice, we are not able to approve the rebate. I've attached a copy of what the rebate processing team is looking for.

Hope this helps,
Debbie

Well that doesn't do me any good, as I DID order from that link the very first day it was posted as did others and the SKU didn't show. Now, yes, I could go through the same process today and TODAY it does show but Dell and Slickdeals has fixed it. I am doing nothing different today than I did on the 24th. However, I will not reorder even though I can get it at the same price because I do not want to tie up yet another gift card, my money and waste my time should Slickdeals choose to deny the rebate once again or for some reason the Dell invoice doesn't show correctly again. This didn't happen to just me Slickdeals, it was a glitch, I ordered correctly. I ordered for the last time on one of these deals. Now I have to go to the hassle of refusing the order and waiting for my gift card and credit card refund. NEVER again. And yes, I did put all that information in my correspondence. Way to alienate people.

My correspondence.

I ordered this off of the Slickdeals post that showed this eligible for a rebate at 11:32 a.m. My order was after 6 p.m. on August 24. However when I look at the Dell invoice it doesn't show any mention of the SKU - 466-8577; Dell's customer service seems flummoxed as to how to resolve this. How do I resolve this in order to get the rebate which was definitely valid at the time I ordered the system it was valid for? There has got to be some way to verify the system is valid for the rebate within this time frame, otherwise I will have to refuse delivery. Copy of my invoice attached.

Thank you.

They're doing it again on another deal and I absolutely know the rebate center is aware of the discrepancies between Dell's invoice not listing the SKU and it being a requirement for the SD rebate. If you jump on this deal early, when the deal is first advertised Dell will not list the SKU on the invoice and you will have to go through all the frustration and hassle of returning it or eating the $150 because it will not be valid. I just tried through their link on this new deal and the "SD rebate SKU" is not showing though they're advertising it. EXACTLY what they did on the small desktop deal.
23.8" Dell Inspiron 24 3000 Series AIO 1080p Desktop: E2-7100, 500GB, 4GB DDR3L, Win 8.1 $279.99 AR + Free Shipping
Dell

Here is the detail list going through their link as of the time the "deal" was posted. No SKU again listed on invoice. AVOID their rebate scams.
