- Islanders are eligible to get up to $100 off acquiring new bikes.
- Betty Anne Younker states the $100 rebate she got on buying her new bike helped pay for extras like a kickstand, racks, and mirror.
In February, the bicycle rebate program revealed in the 2022 budget was officially founded on P.E.I.
A refund of up to $100 will be shown on new bicycles with a retail price of $2,000. The rebate is given at the point of sale. The bike rebate is available retroactively to those who have bought a bike from a participating dealer on or after April 1, 2022.
Brett Doyle of Outer Limit Sports stated the retroactive rebate would be a pleasant shock to some.
“I think many clients were waiting and waiting and just got tired of waiting and pulled the trigger and purchased a bike in expectancies, but not knowing for sure that they would get that hundred dollars,” said Doyle.
“We know there were buyers like that, so there’s a lot of happy clients that will wind up getting that hundred dollars that have already bought bikes.”
The $100 rebate motivated Betty Anne Younker to buy a bicycle on Thursday.
“I found a bike. I liked it. $100 rebate. It’s a win-win situation, so go for it,” she said.
“I got a kickstand, racks, mirror. Some of that is paid off from the rebate, so it’s okay.”
