Appliance Manufacturer Rebates and Offers

Rebates Now Available at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center

There was a time…back in the 80's when there was no such thing as an appliance rebate. Apparently, manufacturer rebates first began to appear in retail stores such as grocers as a variation on coupons. Instead of redeeming coupons at the grocer, consumers had to mail them in with proof of purchase. Eventually, rebates spread to other businesses and today they are a major part of appliance retailing. GE was an early adopter of rebate promotions to encourage buyers to purchase GE appliances.

Manufacturers use rebates as part of their overall marketing program to encourage consumers to buy their brand, but just as importantly to buy a specific appliance model or even a complete kitchen appliance package. For a long time, rebates were limited to the popular mass brands such as Frigidaire, GE, and Whirlpool. Luxury brands Sub Zero Wolf, Viking, and others eschewed rebates in the beginning, but eventually succumbed to using rebates as a promotional tactic.

It's good to know, however, that rebates DO come and go. All rebate programs are going to have beginning dates and expiration dates. Rebates might last for a year, but they also might be good only for a few days. It's always going to be a good idea to check with the experts at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center to find out what rebates are available when you are shopping.

Rebate offers on appliances can be just a few dollars, but they can also be several thousand dollars. Some appliance manufacturers such as Dacor, Thermador, and Jenn-Air offer FREE appliances, such as a dishwasher or vent hood, with a purchase of other appliances. From time to time, a manufacturer might also include FREE cookware with the purchase of cooking products such as an induction cooktop or range.
