A little after 10:30 this morning, the $717,000 of unused appliance rebate funds were fully claimed, according to http://www.mnappliancerebate.com.
Those who didn’t get one of the nearly 4,000 second-chance appliance rebates can take a spot on the wait list and hope that someone doesn’t cash in for the up to $200 being offered for a purchase of an Energy Star appliance.
From the website:

That’s all she wrote.
I hope our customers got the lion’s share of these rebates. And being that they’re smart enough to buy from us, I’m confident that they did :)
Did any of you get one this morning? How did you find out about the relaunch?
