Good morning!

Good morning!

Co-op Cash Back Systems works for retailers and distributors preparing and filing their co-op ad claims.  We’ve successfully claimed millions of dollars.  Typically, we work in the Hardware/Lumber categories.  I’ll tell you some of the ideas that we’ve had over the years that will make it easier for you to file your co-op ad claims, keep track of your recievables and get more money back.  Some of it is work process, some is to help standardize what we’re all doing, some is philosophy.  All of it is to help you get all the reimbursements you can get.

We play by a couple of rules

Caveat #1 is that it has to be a good deal for everybody; manufacturer and retailer.

Caveat #2 is that whatever I tell you about co-op, there will be an exception.  If I say you can be reimbursed by check, credit memo or product, someone can always come up with “Well, my guy prints my bags.” or “I get a free lunch!”  Sure.  Good.  But those are the kind of reimbursements that we don’t see so we don’t know about them, can’t see them and can’t add them to your reimbursements report.

There’s always an exception to anything I say about co-op.

Btw, our website is

    I am somewhat familiar with the way coop works. It seems to me that the standards and practices for utilizing coop is more complicated than ever. Is this true or am I just being craggy?

      I don’t know if you’re craggy or not but there are claim rejection forms that list some 45 reasons that your claim is being rejected. Most manufacturers don’t work that hard at rejecting claims, though. On the other hand, We’ve seen plans for building materials that have had to be delivered by UPS because of their size, completeness and complexity. A lot of Health & Beauty plans, last time we looked, were generous but complex. Our theory is that since they live in a world that is so regulated and controlled that that excess of caution carries through to their co-op claims. So if you aren’t craggy now, you will be shortly.

      Have a great day and thanks for your question!
