New Shopping Site Devoted to Free-After-Rebate Deals

The Free After Rebate web site at offers a high-quality, up-to-date listing of merchandise available online with 100% reimbursement after rebate.

The best things in life are free -- after six to eight weeks (the amount of time it takes to receive a rebate check). Lots of deal sites offer information about rebates, but only Free After Rebate offers a compendium of merchandise for $0 after rebate.

Free After Rebate lists items in a straightforward, easy-to-read format -- no cheesy animated graphics, eye-straining colors, resized browser windows, pop-up ads or other obnoxious design elements here. The listings, which include many computer products and consumer goods, are carefully researched to meet high standards for quality merchandise and genuine deals. Items with free shipping and other notable deals are highlighted. Updated daily, Free After Rebate offers rebate redemption tips and a free email newsletter to help shoppers stay abreast of the latest freebies.

The URLwire Effect:
"URLwire is without question the most effective way to tell the right people in the online world about your web site."

"My experience with URLWire has been entirely positive. I received coverage (and links!) from key sites and in e-newsletters, one of which had over 500,000 readers. Resulting traffic has been more than impressive. URLwire demonstrated to me that it's the prime choice for announcing a web site." 

"Eric, URLwire got our site covered and linked online in places we'd tried for months to get in without success. And, URLwire did it in one day."
