If I have an online coupon, can I use it in store at the same retailer?

In most cases, no. Home Depot and Best Buy in-store coupons will only work in store. Home Depot

and Best Buy online coupons will only work for online purchases. However, Lowe’s coupons will
work for both online and in-store purchases.

I’d like to purchase my energy-efficient product from a different retailer other than the one I

reserved my discount coupon with. Can I get a new coupon?

No. Your retailer selection is final. These are single-use coupons that are specific to the retailer
you selected, and they cannot be cancelled or changed.

Does my rebate coupon expire?

Coupons expire on December 31 of the current year unless noted otherwise.* If you do not use
your coupon before the expiration date, you may reserve a new coupon starting January 1 of the
following year. Please check goldenstaterebates.com/coupons for updates.


*Expiration date for coupons issued in 2022 has been extended to December 31, 2023.

 

Which models will my rebate coupon work with?

The coupon you reserve is valid for any model listed on the product category’s Qualified Product
List, sold by the retailer you selected.

 

I received a coupon but when I go to check out it scans at zero dollars. Why?

Either the product isn’t on the Qualified Product List or you may have chosen an online coupon and
you’re trying to check out in the physical store.
