Builders Cash In on Member Rebate
Bill Ward, Executive Vice President, HBAI
Are you a Builder Member of this Association who wants their dues back for the year? Well then, follow my instructions below and within six months you could be receiving rebates on the materials you already buy that will pay for your membership to your local, state, and national associations.
That’s what some of our members did in the first six months of 2016 and they found out that it really, really works! 31 builder members received a total of $18,529, which averages out to about $600, an amount that could cover your Home Builders dues for the year.
The Member Rebate Program was endorsed by HBAI in 2015 as a tool for member recruitment, and especially retention. Builders go to HBArebates.com, get signed up, register the products they have purchased that are in partnership with Member Rebate, send the information in, and wait for their check in the mail.
Prior to builders receiving their rebates, Member Rebate staff checks in with HBAI to make sure that rebate checks go to only those who have a current membership. If they are current, a check is cut and the builder will soon receive a rebate check. If their membership is inactive, the builder will get a call from Member Rebate stating they have a check for them, they will hear the amount, and they will receive the check just as soon as they renew their membership.
Does it work? Yes it does. Currently, builders in the Member Rebate program have a retention rate over 90%, nationwide. Over ¾ of the states participating have a 100% retention rate…wow!
So, here are your instructions to get back what could amount to your annual dues or more. Go to www.HBArebates.com, and follow their instructions to register the construction products that are partnered with the program.
Does stuff like this frustrate you? No problem, you can call Rich Robinson at Member Rebate and he will walk you through the registration process. Rich’s number is (866) 849-8400. I guarantee you that someone will pick up the phone or will call you back ASAP. They want your business, and we want your membership. Have fun with this and make some money, too.
