10:30am Cut Off!

Friday, September 24th, 2010

We’ve received word from the State of Illinois that the cut off time for purchases to receive the 15% rebate will be at 10:30.  If you’re thinking of taking advantage of the rebate, orders need to be finalized at the cut off time.  If you aren’t able to make it in, remember that you can always save on our everyday low prices.

    Abt Electronics’ own Josh Davis spoke with NBC 5’s Marion Brooks Sunday morning on The Talk. The topic on the minds of so many shoppers? Cash for Appliances, the Government subsidized program for consumers to cut their energy bills and help save the environment at the same time.

    The information we have so far…
    -Starting at the end of January, there will be a 25% rebate on all Energy Star qualifying water heaters.
    -Starting in April, cash for appliances will include all Energy Star qualifying washers, dryers, air conditioners, and refrigerators.

    Illinois has $12 million government dollars for the Cash for Appliances program. The specifics for washers, air conditioners, and refrigerators have not been made public yet. The Cash for Appliances program will last until money runs out.

    Dollars for Dishwashers???

    Friday, August 28th, 2009


    “Cash for Appliances” is the latest Federal stimulus program. Similar to the “Cash for Clunkers” program, the government is hoping to stimulate the economy and help consumers save money in the long run with Energy Star appliances.

    According to an article in today’s Wall Street Journal (where Abt’s showroom was featured), each state will individually determine how much of a $50 to $200 rebate will be offered for specific energy-saving appliances.

    Abt’s General Manager, Mark Cook, spoke with both ABC and NBC’s local news stations about the latest incentive program on August 26, 2009.

    Abt is currently offering great deals on Energy Star Appliances, contact any Abt appliance specialist for details. Click Here
