Increasing Prices...Increasing Rebates?

Almost quarterly there will be a memo across my desk about a price increase from a vendor partner. It is to be somewhat expected. Stainless steel is increasing at 1% per month and gas is well, you know....

So why are certain commonly purchased items actually cheaper? Have a look at this slide show and guess how much this kitchen of Frigidaire appliances actually costs when purchased together.

The price is $1799 after a host of rebates. The greatest cost to any company is the loss of market share and the idling of factories...or so it would seem.

The companies offering significant rebates in July are: Frigidaire, JennAir, KitchenAid, Thermador and Bosch

Have a nice weekend.
