From time to time I receive inquires from shoppers re-
questing information on how to trade refund forms
through the mail. There are many publications available
that encourage this practice, and some shoppers are
curious about subscribing to these periodicals while
others want to know if trading by mail is really worth-
while. There are several reasons why its not a good
idea, and in the long run, there is a good chance that
your postage, qualifiers, and time may be wasted.
Many manufacturers offer rebates in limited markets.
These forms are often coded and the clearing house can
use this code to reject responses that do not originate in
the selected market area.
Many products are available only in limited markets
and the forms you receive may require qualifiers from
products not found in local stores.
Computers are being used more and more to track
refunds and this makes it easier for manufacturers to
recognize offers that were submitted from out of the area
in which they were issued.
Many offers start out in one area but are eventually
distributed across the country. If you try to cash in early
by trading and are rejected, the computers may spit out
your later response even though it is now legitimate.
By trading through the mail you stand the chance of
not receiving anything in return or getting back offers that
have already expired.
In addition, don't forget the costs involved. If you
subscribe to a newsletter listing trades be sure to include
this cost plus any ad you run. your postage, envelopes
used, and time you spend. You may be surprised at how
little (if any) profit you realize from this activity.
