Home Depot and the Tax Refund
Everyone has a great way for taxpayers to spend their tax rebate checks, including the Lowe’s and Home Depot home improvement centers. Both now describe
energy-efficient home improvement projects for under $300 and under $600 starting right on the home pages of their Web sites. But Home Depot goes a step further: “There’s no need to go to the bank. We will cash your tax rebate check, free of charge, with any purchase.” Sadly, the first Home Depot home improvement project presented is a standard ceiling fan with no mention of their new truly efficient ceiling fan, the Hampton Bay Gossamer models (see EBN ).
