Doors Open Early for the Energy Star Rebate
Remember, tomorrow Abt opens at 7:30 am for the Energy Star rebate program. It starts tomorrow at 8 am and ends April 28th at 9 pm, or when funds run out—whichever comes first. We expect the 6.2 million dollars to run out quickly. Due to the limited funds, a cap of $400 has been put on the rebate amount per appliance. Only in-store purchases are eligible for the rebate. Energy Star qualified clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and room air conditioners from participating retailers will be eligible for the rebate.
Here are a few program rules to keep in mind:
• Only one rebate per product category, per household is allowable. For example, a customer may receive a rebate on an ENERGY STAR refrigerator as well as a qualifying dishwasher, but would not be eligible for two dishwasher rebates.
• Only Illinois residents are eligible for these rebates. Home zip code must be supplied at point of purchase.
• Rebates will not be retro-active; they will be available for only the periods announced.
• No rebate will be offered to customers who are representing a company or using corporate funding to purchase appliances. In addition, retailers will have the right to refuse to have the appliances delivered to a place of business.
• Only residential-scale equipment will qualify. Only installations in Illinois will qualify. Installations in commercial space will not be applicable.
• All appliances must be delivered by May 28, 2010 – close of business
For Disabled Citizens
Disabled individuals physically unable to make their purchases in-store may do so by calling a participating retailer. This is ONLY for persons physically unable to make their purchases in-store. The State reserves the right to revoke any and all rebates made by individuals violating or misusing this stipulation.
