{Update: They Now Are Honoring!} Brita Not Honoring $10 Rebate

brita {Update: They Now Are Honoring!} Brita Not Honoring $10 Rebate

Update: The power of social media in action! Brita has announced on its Facebook wall that it IS now honoring the rebate. Here’s that announcement:

Great news! We are going to honor all mail-in rebates that were recently available. Thanks you for your patience during this situation and sticking with Brita. Enjoy your rebate!

Uh oh. I smell a social media ****storm coming!

On this week’s Walmart deals, you may have noticed that there was a money-maker on the Brita filter. That money-maker was due to a $10 mail-in rebate from Brita. A rebate, which, according to Brita’s own paperwork, was supposed to be good until the end of March.

Well, it seems that Brita has “run out of supplies” (of $10 bills??) and won’t be honoring any more rebates.

See their Facebook page for more information, but here was one response to a question on their wall:

Unfortunately the rebate supplies have already been exhausted and we are unable to honor any additional rebates. I’m sorry for the inconvenience! If you would like to make a formal complaint, please visit our website at http://www.brita.com/contact/

If you already submitted your rebate, and are worried you won’t receive your rebate, my friend Sara from Saving For Someday has advice on how to file a complaint with the FTC.

  1. Apparently Brita got the message – their fb wall now states that they WILL honor the rebate.

  2. Jennifer S says:

    Does that mean they’ll honor the rebate for those who already sent it in, or can we still send it in? I got a raincheck at CVS for the Brita pitcher, but I don’t want to bother if I can no longer send in the rebate.

    Thanks!

    • What I’m hearing is that if you printed it off their site, then yes – otherwise, no. Not helpful, huh? I’d shoot them an email to confirm before troubling. Sorry :(

  3. I bought the Brita but was going to print the rebate today and cannot find it anywhere. Does anyone have one they can email me or know a site to find it on?? Much appreciated!

  4. You’re awesome, thanks! So glad I found this site!
