Question about $20 Sodastream rebate. Reselling and using rebates?.
Not your typical reselling.
I bought a Fountain Jet but it took way too long to get to my house. So, I went to the store and bought a Genesis. I plan to send in the $20 rebate for my Genesis purchase. However, I'm going to sell the Jet and the person is asking if I have the receipt for them to use the rebate.
I'm not too comfortable with giving out a receipt with any of my info but I'm not really worried about it either.
Will he be able to claim the rebate even if the receipt has my info on it?
Generally rebates are transferrable. Are you wondering if these units are both covered under the same rebate program, and you would be limited to one rebate per person/household/etc?
I would assume your online receipt (Fountain Jet) has your name, home address, etc. on it, and your store receipt (Genesis) does not. I would submit your Genesis rebate with a different address altogether (work or family/friend) and ideally a different name too (spouse/family/friend) to reduce the chance that your name or home address would appear twice in the rebate system, and thus improve the chances that the buyer's rebate goes through.
Also, if the buyer is cool with it, you could also submit the Fountain Jet rebate on behalf of the buyer, and just give them a "redacted" receipt with just the store and order number on it (in case they have any return/exchange/warranty issues). Address isn't a big deal, but I wouldn't want to give out the receipt if it had the last 4 digits of my credit card on it, for example.
