With the Cash for Clunkers car rebate program a great success, the government is now looking into running a similar program for energy inefficient appliances. Below is a basic guideline that will help prepare you to take advantage of the deal.
Things You'll Need
While the rules of the program are not finalized, it is imperative to do research up front. When the deal starts, it is important that you are ready to buy. It could be very likely that stores will sell out of your preferred models quickly. When doing your research, pay special attention to energy ratings. The government refunds may be based on efficiency ratings.
Once you have done your research and determined what appliances you want, it is important to quickly verify that the model qualifies for the deal. It is also important to make sure that you qualify for the deal as well. There may be income requirements or other requirements that you must meet.
You should buy as soon as the deal starts. Watch the news in the next few weeks to determine when the deal will start. You will have the best chance to get the model that you have already researched and make the buying process as quickly as possible. You can also try to put a deposit on the appliance before the deal officially starts.
Enjoy your government refund and new appliance! Feel good about yourself that you have stimulated the economy!
Tips & Warnings
- Be patient for the rebate program to start and be quick to purchase once it does start.
