Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp. has announced an option for scanning and uploading consumer rebate materials for qualifying Federal-Mogul Motorparts products during promotional periods.
The company says the capability is available now for the Champion automotive spark plug consumer rebate and on future Federal-Mogul consumer promotional offers for Anco, Champion, Wagner brake and Wagner lighting products.
Anco, Champion and Wagner are brands of Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp.
Consumers who purchase any qualifying Federal-Mogul Motorparts products during promotional periods can save time and money while submitting rebate materials through the new digital upload feature, according to the company. The new technology enables users to scan and upload their proof of purchase rather than having to mail in the required materials.
The new digital upload capability enables the user to complete the rebate submission process, including providing the required receipt, without printing and mailing. The user can simply scan their receipt from a smartphone or desktop scanner and submit, along with their name, address and other required information, via the corresponding brand’s online rebate center.
Consumers also have the option to continue to mail their materials. However, the web upload option provides peace of mind that the information has been received at the rebate center. This new capability enhances Federal-Mogul’s state-of-the-art rebate system, which automates each step of the fulfillment process.
“We want to lead the automotive parts and service industry in offering the fastest, easiest and most transparent rebate process,” says Michael Proud, director of marketing, North America, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “This exciting new capability provides another compelling reason for consumers to choose Anco, Champion, Wagner ThermoQuiet and Wagner lighting products.”

Remember email? Sometimes in the communication that is texting, tweeting or ‘Snapchatting,’ email is taken for granted. Facebook is great for sharing your thoughts and feelings to everyone you have friended, but email is more targeted, especially when used for business. You might say it is even more personal than Facebook because it is designed for interaction between two people or among a small group of people.
There are off-road warriors who never let their vehicles or mud-terrain tires touch pavement. There are others who like to occasionally play in the dirt, but need their fun vehicles to do double duty to go to work or school.
