Manufacturer Rebates Are Back! Here’s Your Guide
For the past few years, supply chain issues meant demand for welding machines and equipment was way higher than manufacturer’s could supply. Because of this, almost every manufacturer pulled their rebate program, such as Miller’s Build with Blue that disappeared completely.
While there was some speculation that these programs were gone forever, we’re happy to say the rebates are back! Break out the fancy party glasses and tell cousin Erny to put on his tux, because we’re celebrating. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to get the most out of the new rebates.
Build With Blue
The king has returned—and he is back with a vengeance. That’s right, Miller’s Build with Blue promotion is finally back, featuring the biggest lineup of rebates that we’ve seen in a long time.
Among the roster of included products is some of Miller’s best selling machines. First and foremost: The Millermatic 211 with and without running gear has a $200 rebate. If you’re looking for a MIG-only machine, you have to take a look at the Millermatic 211. Although, If you’re looking for something with a little more umph, the Millermatic 255 also has a $250 rebate.
If you’re looking for a multi-process machine, Miller is also featuring some great rebates. The Multimatic 220 is only one of a few multi-process machines that can TIG weld aluminum. Right now, Miller is offering a $250 rebate. It’s a no brainer if you’re looking to AC TIG weld with a multi-process unit.
That’s just scratching the surface of the new Build with Blue promotion. Check out all the details for yourself here.
If Lincoln is your brand of choice, there’s currently rebates for the Square Wave TIG 200 and the Power MIG 210 MP. Now, here’s the tricky part. You can buy either machine separately and get a $400 rebate, but if you buy both machines at the same time, you’ll get an additional $200 off ($1000 rebate in total).
The Power MIG 210 has long been one of the best mid-tier multi-processors in the business. It’s an amazing MIG machine that can also DC TIG and stick weld. While it can’t TIG weld aluminum, there is a special kit with a spool gun for MIG welding aluminum.
As for the Square Wave TIG 200, we’ve written a novel on that beast. For our more in-depth review, click here. Just note that if you are looking to TIG weld aluminum but aren’t interested in a multi-process unit, the Square Wave TIG 200 is an excellent choice.
ESAB Summer Burn and Earn
ESAB was one of the few manufacturers that kept their rebate going over the last few years. That being said, this new summer edition features several incredible machines with some strong rebates and a few free products with select purchases.
First off, we’ve got the ESAB Rebel EMP 205ic multi-process unit with a $300 rebate plus a FREE Sentinel A50 welding helmet. We’ve covered this machine at length since it’s one of the few multi-process machines capable of both AC and DC TIG welding. This means you can TIG weld aluminum. The Sentinel A50 is also an awesome helmet, one of the best you can buy in our opinion.
The ESAB Rebel EMP 215ic is also an incredible multi-process machine. It uses ESABs sMIG technology to produce one of the smoothest arcs possible. Right now, ESAB is offering a $200 rebate on the 215ic plus a free Sentinel A50 helmet.
Besides the EMP 205ic and the EMP 215ic, ESAB also has rebates on a several other machines and cutting kits. Check out the full list of ESAB rebates here.
