BIAW’s Member Rebate Program
The Member Rebate Program is an exciting program that can actually put money back into your pocket. Through this program, the country’s leading manufacturers pay rebates as their way of thanking our members for their loyalty to their products. You may already be utilizing many of these products, so why not get paid a rebate for something you’re already doing?
- The program does not require builders or remodelers to change how they do business
- No receipts are required
- A simple claim form is all that is needed to be filled out
- Claims are filled out quarterly for all homes or projects that are closed or completed
Nobody likes paperwork, so we’ve worked hard to keep paperwork to a minimum and keep the process simple. When you register, you simply indicate which of the eligible manufacturers you already use. Then, on a quarterly basis, you are mailed a rebate check. result of using the combined buying power of BIAW’s builders and remodelers, combined with many other state associations, to qualify for the same manufacturer rebates the nation’s largest builders receive.
If you have any questions regarding the Member Rebate Program, please call Karen Hall at (360) 352-7800 ext. 137.
