As prices rise, HBA rebates help you get money back
September 20, 2022
As gas prices, labor shortages and inflation continue to bring challenges to builders and remodelers across Washington, HBA Rebates are a silver lining. According to the latest report from HBA Rebates, 170 BIAW members received an average of $3,269.86 in refunds in Q1 2022.
Founded in 2002, this rebate program helps small-to-mid-sized builders enjoy the same types of loyalty benefits available to larger builders. The program now serves members of 44 state home building associations and over 600 local HBAs, offering rebates from more than 50 participating manufacturers.
Participating in the HBA Rebates program is easy
- Visit HBARebates.com and register for the program.
- Check out the calendar to see when you submit your claim. You can even set reminders for your calendar or sign up for texts.
- Once a quarter, you’ll submit a claim form if you have any completed residential addresses that used any of the participating manufacturers.
No receipts necessary
You don’t need to track receipts to process the rebates as HBA Rebates uses the addresses of your builds and manufacturer salespersons to verify the information through their distribution. This keeps the paperwork to a minimum and saves you time.
HBA Rebates make good sense
Bob Disney at Disney & Associates, Inc. told us it makes good sense to use this program.
When first introduced to the program, Bob and his staff recognized they used a lot of the materials listed. Bob likes the wide variety of manufacturer offerings as he can use them across the custom homes, housing communities and multifamily homes they build.
Staffers at Disney really like the hands-on approach and follow-up that the HBA Rebate staff offers. They also research products to get more rebates. Bob says he uses the income from the program to offset the costs of his employee’s health insurance and other benefits.
“I can’t see a downside to this rebate program,” he said. “The fact is—it doesn’t take much to benefit the bottom line so I can incentivize and grow employee compensation.”
According to the HBA Rebates website, more than 70% of those participating paid for their HBA membership out of their rebates alone.
