The rebate is a corporate thing and you need to eat the bars to qualify, although you will spend more on the bars than you will ever get back. Anyway, that said..I like the Lites, I did not buy the bulk rate cos I had already forked over $400 for the program and didnt feel right about that. I did the smaller bulk of 10 boxes, which took me long enough into my program and success that I decided to buy more. You will hear a lot about the bars, but I really like them and they do offer promotions from time to time with discounts on the bars, so dont feel a huge pressure. You can start with a small amount. Be careful with the Lites on ebay to insure you are getting the freshest product available. This, coming from an ebay powerseller
Good luck to yoU!
