Can you really “Collect a ‘Cash Rebate’ on Nearly EVERY Single Purchase Made in 2017?”

What's Oxford Club's $42.4 BILLION “Consumer Rebate Program?”

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, November 28, 2017

Ed note: this article was first published in 2015, but the ad continues to run and readers continue to ask about it, so we’re re-posting this teaser solution for you today.

What follows has not been meaningfully updated or revised since it was originally published on March 14, 2015, though some minor updates have been made to keep up with the changes in the ad (they no longer claim that “April deadline,” for example, since that has long passed and they’ve moved on from talking up 2016 to 2017 for this ‘rebate’ on your taxes).. and the original comments from readers are still appended. The focus of the ad seems to be largely unchanged (the latest version being sent out now is still dated January 2017), though they’re now focusing on the “rebate” for your 2017 spending instead of 2015 or 2016 in previous versions…. perhaps it will keep popping back up, since it seems to be working to spark interest — which is, of course, the prime intent of any newsletter ad.

Are you really going to get a big ol’ check from the government?

Well, maybe. But it’s not so secret as the Oxford Club folks would like you to believe… and you don’t need them (or their $49 subscription) to learn about it.

You probably don’t need me for that, either, free or not, but quite a few readers have been asking this morning so I’ll try to quickly explain what they’re talking about.

The ad comes from George Rayburn at the Oxford Club…. here’s the basic idea from their ad that got everyone excited:

“119 Million Taxpaying Americans Can Now Get a Cash Rebate on Virtually EVERY SINGLE PURCHASE Made in 2017…

“Bloomberg estimates it could put as much as $42.4 BILLION back in the pockets of the 119 million eligible taxpaying Americans.

“Others predict it could be even more.

“According to an article on Fox Business News, there is ‘no limit’ to the size of your ‘cash rebate.’

“If you have a huge spending year in 2017 (even on credit), in rare cases you could conceivably claim upward of $100,000.”

And then they make it sound even more fantastic…

“This is not a joke.

“I’m talking about an opportunity to collect a ‘cash rebate’ on virtually anything you pay for this year.

“A new pair of shoes…

“Your vacation hotel bill…

“Lunch with friends…

“A new leather sofa…

“Plane tickets…

“Christmas presents for the kids…

“Even big-ticket items like an engagement ring… a wedding… or a new car, boat or RV…

“The government is willing to send you cold hard cash for all of it.”

So what are they really talking about? Can you actually get a “cash rebate” from the government just for buying stuff?

freemoney2Well, sort of. What the Oxford Club is talking about here is the fairly recent opportunity to choose to deduct either state and local income taxes or state and local sales taxes when you file your return with the IRS…. but by “fairly recent” I mean, “passed into law a little over ten years ago.”

This isn’t new.
