Please explain how I benefit from Mail-in Rebates? Why don't they just give a net price, rebates included? Why the need for the work around?

Because it's a manufacturer led promotion normally that (hopefully) encourages people to buy a particular product or products; the retailer benefits through improved sales of such products without becoming involved on the financial rebates side.

I am clueless. There is an offer on Amazon for a mail rebate. How do I go about it?

You buy an item which comes with a voucher that you have to post back to the manufacturer and they will then send you a cheque.

Seems to be a lot more common in the US. Must be working it's way across here I suppose.

It's quite common in the UK - it may be that you don't purchase the type of products involved at the time such offers are available.
