What is a NBPR rebate?

Alcohol companies very often release beer rebates and sometimes wine rebates.

If you’re lucky you can find the forms in grocery and convenience stores. You will not usually find them available to print on the internet. I buy mine from E-bay because I can’t find them in-store.

The terms of the rebate will require you to buy the company’s beer (or wine) and $XX of another product(s).  I’ve have seen the other products range from meat, seafood or produce to frozen pizzas, ice, snacks, drinks and even sunscreen!

But some states have laws against alcohol companies offering rebates on alcoholic beverages.  So, iff you live in one of the 14 states that have these laws, a lot of times you can still get the rebate just by purchasing the listed products!  The states are AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MD, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OK, UT and WV.  When No Beer Purchase is Required, we call these NBPR rebates.

Here’s an example:
Purchase 2 Budweiser products and $10 worth of meat and receive a $5 rebate.

If the fine print states no beer purchase required in AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MD, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OK, UT and WV, then all you have to purchase is $10 worth of meat to get $5 back!

Beer rebates sometimes will have a start date as well as end date, so purchases will have to be made between those two dates.

NBPR are the main reason why I keep ALL my receipts.  Especially since they are usually on meat or produce.  When I find a rebate I know I already have receipts that I can put towards the rebate!
