Step 1: Equipment must be new to be eligible for rebate amounts. Refer to the equipment rebate list for qualifying equipment requirements.

Tune-ups must also be paid for on or after January 1, 2016. Tune-ups completed as part of a service contract pre-dating January 1, 2016, are not eligible for the rebate.

Rebates are processed in the order in which they are received and can take up to 4 to 6 weeks for processing. Be sure to read the Terms and Conditions.
