Behr Paint Rebates @ Home Depot

1407 of 1443 Home Depot reviews

I have used the Home Depot/Behr Paint rebate offer several times.I have also learned some things the "hard way".

In this case all the rules are on the rebate slip, and there are no surprises. If there is a question, you can call the toll free number listed on the rebate slip. We live in Melbourne, Fl. and find the employees in the paint dept.

to be pleasant and knowledgeable. I think alot of people find sending in for rebates is a nuisance and don't want to bother.

In this case, it's well worth it and the paint is great, too!

I also found the process lengthy and did not realize that even though I had mailed all the necessary documents to Home Depot when I checked on the process, I found that all the data was there but it had not be "submitted". I liked the stain and the rebate helped on my big project but there are a lot of "hoops" to jump through and persistance is necessary if you really want the rebate.

I have done many rebates in different stores for their online purchases they require for behr mail in. Did what they asked and it still came back. Like behr paint but don't expect a rebate. They are not clear even when they send it back saying you missing things because they list everything. Even a store receipt when bought online. Before I sent the rebate in the customer chat home-depot representative insisted that could not find the rebate I was looking for and there was only one for the store. I found it while on the phone with the individual and they agreed it was for online and the right rebate for me. Still came back. Never or less Home depot/behr should be ashamed of their system. Further you only have a month to get your rebate in and some times less than that depending on your purchase and the rebate time frame. Staples is great with rebates learn from them please. Other mailing rebates otc meds, alcohol, and computer software no problems.

Yes, READ the instructions. Home Depot is not trying to screw anyone out of money. I know this because I work for the company and more often than not, YOU customers screw us time and time again...I could go on for hours about the scams you people pull, and we smile and put up with it, because we provide great customer service. As for the paint rebate, the reason we don't offer the discount at the register is so that HD isn't taking the markdown for the sale, Behr does. What that means in simple laymans turns, is the money YOU get back comes out of BEHR's pockets. Not ours. Behr is a HD propietary brand, but still their own company.

I have always been told that I did not send correct Receipt or bar code. I am sick of the rebate program. It seems to be a pattern ro me. Three times so far. I always make copies of everything and offer to send it to them. They agree to make a exception ar that point.

I find it entertaining about how many people don't do the rebates properly. The online function for the Behr Rebates is a phenomenal system. There may be flukes that happen from time to time, but make copies of receipts, and all purchase information. The online system is so automated that it's hard for an individual to go wrong. The only key thing is like mentioned earler, follow up if you don't receive a rebate check within 6-10 weeks. Usually it doesn't take that long, especially if you submit your info before the last day of the event when everyone else does!

These rebates are not a gimmick to get people to impulsively to buy things. They are run to provide people the opportunity to do projects they may not otherwise do because of financial reasons, or because they set budgets, which there is nothing wrong with.

I got a Behr prepaid mastercard and used 1/2 of the 20$ on it. The next time I went to use the balance it said declined and the cashier gives me a reason that was had nothing to do with the situation.... Home depot should stick to what it does best like exposing children to *** rights activism.....

Hello dumbasses read thats right you have to read the directions. It does say to have receipt dated within purchase date specified on coupon send in upc codes and so on so forth. My belief is that when most people walk into a retail store they become illiterate and ignorant they then argue with whoever. If you have problems then i highly suggest you all go back to kindergarten and relearn how to read. Because clearly you half assed it to begin with. This rebate is no different than any other company it is YOU who are not following the very simple directions given to you.

We too have been notified by Behr that they could not honor our rebate request because of:
invalid putchase,
have not received confirmation of our sales data,
Behr puchase could not be verified by the receipt information provided.
This is going to make be think long and hard about buying Behr paint from now on.

I have tried the Behr paint rebates from Home Depot at least 5 times in the last three years. I paint for others and my own house after and addition. I have never recieved a rebate from Behr. I have submitted both by mail and online with the same result. I even have tracking numbers but nowhere to track them?!!! aI like the paint but I'm not happy with Behr or Home Depot. Maybe it's time to head to Lowes for paint!

why don't they just lower the price? BECAUSE think about it, if they lower the price they will have no choice but to loose the $5. If they do it by rebate how many people do you think are going to remember, or do it correctly, or for that fact mail it in in time.

I totally agree with the handling of rebates. Of course Home Depot would love to have the customer misplace the receipt or attempt to apply for the rebate, however the offer has already expired! This is ***. Give the customer the rebate immediately. That customer CHOSE to walk into a Home Depot Store. They couldve gone to Fleet Farm, Menard's, or Lowes, but they chose Home Depot. This should mean something to Home Depot. I did receive my cards for the rebates due to me, however I have been to 4 stores already today and they do not accept this particular card. What a bunch of ***! All I can suggest is apply the rebate to the customer's purchase immediately. Trust me. You will have more happy - and returning customers if this is done.
