But we hope that the quality and pricing of the products we do have will be a non issue for you to switch.

Rebate Program

In many cases, Colonial Purchasing Co-Op will have a rebate program in place. This is a fairly simple but effective component of the buying group.

  • By having a rebate program in place, helps assure that members purchase the projected products they committed to.
  • The rebate program helps the supplier establish a reasonable market invoice price without destroying market pricing, knowing that if the group meets their commitment levels, then a rebate would be distributed.
  • When the members receive their rebates, they suddenly realize that these funds go directly to the bottom line!
  • Additional Rebates can be structured when the group exceeds projections. This is most often achieved by bringing new members on during the time-frame of the rebate.
