How do I join to view vendors, discounts, rebate info and educational content?
How does the annual rebate payout program work*?
Not only will CORE Perks save you money with national discounts, but you have the opportunity to earn cash back as well. This happens through a rebate based on total contractor spend on certain programs that is later shared with you! CORE Perks will distribute 100% of annual rebate it receives from vendor back to its Elite Members for the first year of participation, and 50% back to CORE Members, ONCORE Providers & CORE Perks Affiliates (on select programs) – at proportions that are based on individual contractor spend with the specific partner. After year one, CORE Perks will issue a rebate of 60% to Elite Members and 50% to CORE Members, ONCORE Providers & CORE Perks Affiliates. The more you spend with participating vendors, the larger the rebate! Timing varies with certain partners on when you’ll receive the rebate, but for most organizations you purchase with – CORE Perks or select Partner will pay you on an annual basis. To view all vendor rebate program info and percentages you can earn on qualifying purchases, please log in here to the CORE Perks site, or sign up and create an account here.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all Perks Partners participate in the annual rebate program, and some organizations have specific cash back terms that differ from the offer above. Some programs may require a minimum spend before you are eligible to receive cash back from CORE Group or Vendor. Charges for items such as shipping, taxes, misc. fees & other ancillary services may not be included in your total spend with certain companies. Active CORE Elite Members, CORE Members, ONCORE Providers & CORE Perks Affiliates are eligible to earn rebates on qualifying, pre-tax purchases made through Perks Vendors, as long as they are in good financial standing with CORE Corporate and the Vendor Partner. Please note that CORE Elite Members & CORE Members generally enjoy better rebates and discounts with select partners.
Can I earn a rebate if I purchase through another preferred vendor buying group?
CORE Group does not mandate what programs you can use, nor do we discourage participation with other preferred vendor buying groups. Participation & purchasing with any CORE Perks Vendor Partner is completely optional, and specific programs are built for each organization. However, if you purchase from a specific vendor on CORE Perks with another preferred vendor buying group, you will not be eligible to receive a rebate from CORE. If you wish to purchase from a particular company to save & earn rebates through CORE and your spending is currently being tracked under a different group, you must inform the vendor that you want to be on the CORE Perks program.
