When submitting your rebate:
A very small percentage (5%) of rebate claims are denied. When a rebate is denied, it's most frequently due to the following reasons:
Required documentation is missing or illegible (missing copy of receipt or invoice with SKU listed, UPC/Barcode mismatch, rebate form address must match billing/shipping address, etc.)
Postmark or submission date is outside of the offer timeframe
Maximum number of items allowed for the offer have been redeemed
Please verify that all submissions adhere to the guidelines so you can promptly receive your rebate payment. Please see our blog post for additional details. We recommend that you ALWAYS mail rebate via a trackable method.

A: Yes, the reseller that is covered by the rebate will be specified in the Terms and Conditions section of the offer. You must click through the link provided on Slickdeals and purchase the product from the specified reseller in order to qualify for the rebate. Please see above mentioned guidelines for more details. Use of cashback sites, referrals, or anything else except our links will invalidate the offer.
Q: What are my payment choices?
A: During registration, you will be asked to choose a payment type. You may be eligible to receive a check, VISA or American Express Prepaid Reward Card. Normally, rebate payments are received 8-10 weeks after approval.
Q: Does my rebate check/card ever expire?
A: Yes. Checks are void if not cashed within 90 days of issuance and cannot be reissued. This is indicated in the terms and conditions of your rebate offer. There is an expiration date embossed on the front of your Prepaid Card, so pay close attention to that.
Q: I bought more than one of the same product that a rebate was offered on. Can I submit for more than one rebate?
A: Most rebates have a limit on the number of claims that can be submitted on a single promotion. Please review the promotion details on your rebate form or website to find out the specific rules for the promotion you are applying for.
Q: Do rebates expire?
A: Yes, product rebates are only valid for a specific time frame. Please refer to your rebate documentation for specific dates, requirements, and deadlines. Rebates are only valid on specific products from that specific store, outlined in the rebate form.
Q: How many days after my purchase can I send in my rebate?
A: This varies by rebate. Refer to your rebate documentation for specific dates and other requirements.
Q: How do I claim a rebate?
A: In order to claim your rebate, click the link to the rebate form in the related Slickdeals thread or visit our website at slickdeals.4myrebate.com and click on Claim Your Rebate. You will need the offer code for the product that you will be applying for. Offer codes can be found in the documents in the thread for that particular offer. Enter the required information and print the online rebate form. Sign the printed form and mail it to the specified address along with all required documentation. Be sure to mail in the rebate within the designated timeframe. You will be able to follow your rebate status on our website using your confirmation number or email address.
Q: How do I obtain an invoice?
A: You should be able to obtain a copy of your invoice from the website where you made the purchase. Invoices are specific order confirmations and must include your billing/shipping address, order #, date of purchase, and SKU/name of item purchased. Sometimes a packing slip may be substituted for an invoice if it includes your billing/shipping address, order #, date of purchase, and SKU/name of item purchased. Exact requirements will always be posted on the specific rebate documentation. Please see our blog post for additional details.
Q: What is a packing slip?
A: A packing slip is the shipping document that is included with delivered packages. If terms allow, it may be used as a substitute for the invoice if it includes your billing/shipping address, order#, date of purchase, and SKU/name of the item purchased. All information must meet the requirements as stated in the terms and conditions of the rebate offer.
Q: What is a proof of purchase/UPC barcode? Where is it located?
A: The proof of purchase (also commonly referred to as a UPC barcode) is used to identify that the correct item for the rebate was purchased. It is located on the box or package of the product. Each item has a specific UPC, so it is necessary to attach the correct one when filling out the rebate documentation. Please note, once the UPC is cut out, returns are generally not allowed. Please see rebate documents to make sure you fulfill requirements for the rebate.
Q: I forgot to mail my rebate and now it has expired. If I send it in late, will I be able to get my rebate?
A: No, promotions such as rebates are carefully planned for very specific time frames. If the postmark date has passed for your rebate, unfortunately you will not qualify. Be sure to mail in the rebate within the designated timeframe.
Q: I bought my product during the rebate time frame but received it after the rebate redemption period expired. Can I still redeem my rebate?
A: Yes. Simply provide valid proof that your shipment was delayed, such as a packing slip detailing when the product was shipped.

A: The name on the check will be the same as the name on the rebate application. This name must match the billing information on the invoice as stated in the terms and conditions of your rebate offer.
Q: How do I change the name on the rebate check?
A: You cannot change the name on the rebate check. The check will only be made out to the name on the rebate application. This name must match the billing information on the invoice as stated in the terms and conditions of your rebate offer.
Q: Where will my rebate reward be sent to?
A: The rebate reward will be mailed to the address on the rebate application. The address must match the billing information on the invoice as stated in the terms and conditions of your rebate offer.

Slickdeals requires that you mail in the rebate form and supporting documentation to verify that the correct product was purchased during the rebate promotional period.
Q: Do I need to use multiple envelopes when submitting more than one rebate?
A: Yes, you must use separate mailing envelopes and forms when submitting multiple rebates. Slickdeals keeps individual records of each submitted rebate form. Even if more than one of the same rebate offer code is being submitted, each must be mailed in their own envelope. Be sure to read the requirements for each application and sign all rebate forms.

If the terms and conditions are not met, the rebate will not be processed. As always, please refer to specific rebate documentation for the actual requirements.
