Even though we’ve been using the EcoRebates tools for a short time, we are already seeing impressive increases in ENERGY STAR sales – in some cases more than 50% - by providing this key information to consumers at the point of sale"
Menlo Park, Calif. (PRWEB) July 28, 2010
EcoRebates, the premier provider of custom ENERGY STAR rebate solutions for retailers, manufacturers, program administrators, and consumers, announces its latest retail client deployment with leading appliance retailer - Number1Direct by Goedeker’s. Deployed at the point of sale, the EcoRebates Rebate Locator - Retailer Edition provides Number1Direct’s consumers with the most up-to-date information about cash-back rebates on appliances, giving them a compelling incentive to purchase the most energy-efficient ENERGY STAR models.
As one of the nation’s largest independent appliance retailers, for more than 5 decades Number1Direct by Goedeker’s has provided its customers a large selection of name-brand appliances and electronics at low prices, striving for 100% customer satisfaction. Number1Direct can now help their customers save even more time and money through its deployment of the EcoRebates Rebate Locator tools. Available rebates found by the EcoRebates search tool – from states, utilities, municipalities and manufacturers - can range from $25 to more than $500.
As a leader in the home appliance market, Number1Direct is continuing its innovative leadership by deploying the EcoRebates Rebate Locator tool – the only solution of its kind deployed at the point of sale for consumers. "We see the EcoRebates tool as a key strategy in driving increased ENERGY STAR sales," said Steve Goedeker, President of Number1Direct by Goedeker’s. "We can now locate thousands of previously unknown rebates for our customers helping them buy more energy efficient products. Even though we’ve been using the EcoRebates tools for a short time, we are already seeing impressive increases in ENERGY STAR sales – in some cases more than 50% - by providing this key information to consumers at the point of sale.”
“We have not only built a comprehensive resource of available rebates and incentives for ENERGY STAR products, but we are delivering vital decision-making information to consumers when they need it most – at the point of purchase. Prior to the EcoRebates solution most consumers didn’t know about all the rebates for which they were eligible on specific ENERGY STAR products resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in savings being left on the table and a huge number of ‘gas guzzler’ appliances being purchased yearly,” said Brett Battles, founder and CEO of EcoRebates. “We are honored to be working with Number1Direct to help them drive more ENERGY STAR sales and to help their consumers purchase the most energy-efficient products.”
Easily deployed on the Number1Direct website, the EcoRebates search tool automatically gives shoppers information about all rebates available where they live for ENERGY STAR products by SKU. It provides key program details, such as recycling requirements and qualifying dates. Armed with this information, consumers can quickly access hundreds of dollars in savings per product that most consumers probably did not know about previously. The EcoRebates Rebate Locator draws from a continually updated database of more than one thousand of energy-efficiency rebates from utilities, water companies, state/local governments and manufacturer's, including the $300 million state “Cash for Appliances” programs and the pending federal Home Star home energy retrofit program ("Cash for Caulkers").
