What is the Rebate Program?

The Penn State DuBois Rebate Program has been developed to help assist students and families with the cost of tuition.

Rebates accrued by your gift certificate order will be added to your account. At the end of the semester, this money will be transferred to the Finance Office for your use during the next semester or held in your account to be used at an agreed upon date.

Is it really FREE MONEY?

You are spending money at the grocery store and need to put gas in your car. Every time you buy certificates from us your account earns money. If you order $100 worth of certificates, you receive $100 worth of certificates, but your account has earned money, FREE MONEY.
