I have two simple questions for you all:
Imagine you are purchasing something large for your family, the cost is about $5,000. You found a website that saves you some money off of that item, say $250, so you purchase it there. You have two choices to get the $250, discount off the top or rebate.
Which do you choose, discount or rebate? (no paper work required for the rebate, it just comes in the mail a couple of days later)
Do either of these terms (discount & rebate) have a negative connotation to you?
Thanks for playing along, just trying to solve an argument.
