Best Buy Continues to Phase Out Mail-In Rebates

Best Buy is continuing to revamp their rebates process, according to this press release, providing ‘instant savings’ on notebook computers at the register, as well as rolling out a new online rebates tool that they claim shortens the rebate turn-around down to just over a week.

Best Buy has stated that its intentions are to ditch rebates entirely by April ’07, which is a move we wholeheartedly applaud. These are clearly moves in the right direction and we hope that other retailers follow suit.
