To receive most rebates, you have to complete a form, attach the sales receipt you received when you purchased the product or service and then mail that information to the manufacturer or business offering the rebate. With today's technology, most rebates can be processed online by visiting a rebate processing website or the manufacturer/store's website and entering the required information.
