Hurricane Sandy Victims Find Millions In Cash-Back Rebates On As Federal Aid Trickles In

MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners can get cash-back rebates worth more than $1,000 for home improvements. Manufacturers, utilities and local governments respond with cash-back, home improvement rebates that can be combined with the $500 tax credit provided in the 2012 "Fiscal Cliff" tax bill.

Homeowners register for FREE on, discover savings and easily connect with rebate-authorized contractors. Cash-back rebates do not reduce any insurance reimbursements.

According to our research, one million homeowners directly in the path of Hurricane Sandy and in the surrounding area have suffered over $50 billion dollars in damage. Despite a slump in home improvement over the recent years, area homeowners are searching online for roofing, siding, replacement windows and furnaces at the highest rate since the housing crash began in 2006.

SaveBigBread researchers will be offering free educational seminars on how homeowners can take advantage of rebates and credits. Register for FREE on so we can notify you of our seminar schedule and locations in your area.
