Best Buy - rebates

09 Jun: The ultimate guide to rebates at Best Buy

For years, Best Buy has partnered with utility companies across the country to provide rebates to our customers. With the help of the Best Buy rebate finder and the ENERGY STAR® mark, we aim to help our customers save money, use less energy and live more sustainably.

Why do utilities offer rebates?

Utility companies want their customers to use less energy. Many states have sustainability goals and require utilities to offer energy-saving programs to their customers. Reduced energy usage is also good for utility companies because the less energy people use, the fewer power plants utilities need to build (which is costly).
