Discount vs. Rebate

Key Differences

A discount is a reduction in the listed price of a product or service offered at the time of sale. It is immediately applied and reduces the sale price. In contrast, a rebate is a refund provided to the customer after the purchase. It often requires the customer to submit proof of purchase to receive the refund.

Discounts are used as a sales strategy to attract customers and encourage immediate purchases. They are straightforward and visible at the point of sale. Rebates, however, are often used as a marketing tool to promote products and encourage purchases without an immediate price reduction. They may also be used to collect customer information.

Discounts are clearly visible to customers at the point of purchase. The reduced price is displayed, making it easy for customers to understand the savings. Rebates, however, are not immediately visible in the product’s price and require the customer to take additional steps post-purchase to claim the refund.

Discounts are immediate and affect the purchase price at the time of sale. They are applicable during the transaction. Rebates take place after the sale and involve a waiting period for the customer to receive the refund, often requiring the submission of forms and proof of purchase.

Discounts generally require no extra effort from the consumer, as the reduced price is applied at the time of sale. Rebates require active participation from the consumer, including filling out forms and providing proof of purchase, which can sometimes discourage consumers from claiming them.
