"Hmmm, do they put the rebate in HERE?"

EcoRebates Is Your Source For Appliance Rebate Info

 
Are you thinking about buying a new appliance? If so, you'll want to know what cash rebates are available through your state's "cash for appliance" rebate program.

EcoRebates has a simple search-by-state function that lets you know exactly how much money your state has been allocated by the Department of Energy, which products are covered by your state's program and how much rebate cash is available within each product category. Not every state has its program up and running. EcoRebates.com indicates which states' appliance rebate programs are currently in effect, and when others will be.

By clicking on Vermont, I learned that our appliance rebate program received a cool half a mil from the DOE and that I can get $150 back with the purchase of an Energy Star refrigerator, as well as other rebates for buying an Energy Star-rated boiler, Room A/C, water heater and clothes washer. Exciting stuff, and very good information to have.

My excitement turned to anger when I clicked on New Hampshire, our neighbors with whom we seem always to be in competition. They got almost $1.3 million from the DOE. What's that all about?

What new appliance will you be buying under the cash for appliance rebate program?

Does a Programmable Thermostat Programmable Thermostat count as an appliance? I hope it does because not only will I get a rebate if I upgrade, but I'll also reap the rewards of saving money monthly on the electric bill! I LOVE this idea. Thanks for the helpful link, Ben!

The site you referenced in the article does not include the most valuable of all the rebates - those that come from utilities and municipalities.

Appliancerebate.com is a much better site that includes not only the state rebates, but also manufacturer, retailer, utility and municipality rebates. In addition, they have all the forms on their site and allow you to download the forms and pre-fill them out!

Programmable Thermostats I found that this was a helpful website for me. I like the option of setting it and forgetting it as opposed to changing the temperature in your house all the time.
