, or an accessory, make sure it’s something you or the gift receiver can actually use.

Second, how easy is it for you to reclaim your cash? Look for instant rebates instead of mail-in ones.

    I once took a photo copy of the bar code to get the rebate because item was a gift, and my rebate was refused. There should be a better way to handle rebates when item is a gift.
