The Leader in Rebate Program Management

Rebate Platform

Today’s consumers are smarter than ever. They know how to find the best deals and the deepest discounts. That’s why they generally prefer rebates — also known in many industries as validated rewards — that offer lower in-market prices than instant discounts or coupons do.

At Blackhawk Engagement Solutions, we are a leading single-source provider of pricing strategy, promotion management, rebate processing, rules-based validation, reward fulfillment and CRM.

Whether you are looking for a traditional mail-in rebate provider or a paperless solution that can integrate into your point-of-sale and loyalty program, we can simplify your rebate or validated reward program management.

Our strategic insights — based on current shopper-behavior research and 15 years of experience — can give your business the competitive advantage it needs, including consumer data collection, net-price advertising, spendback of promotional dollars and more.


Whether you’re selling autos, repair and maintenance, or after-market supplies, we have proven rebate programs that will increase your sales. For example:

  • Preserve pricing that indicates quality with rebates instead of discounts
  • Offer rebate fulfillment for oil changes, tire purchases, wiper blades and more
