Rebates and Allowances

Marathon Buying Club has negotiated vendor rebates, allowances, promotions and rack/shelving allowances covering all c-store categories. Members receive rebate checks each month/quarter based on each member’s program participation. Member’s purchases are individually tracked through the locations’s wholesale distributor and direct service distributor. Payments are based on the actual program in which the members choose to participate. Program payments are mailed each quarter with detailed reports which are referenced by vendor, program, and amount received. Each member can review their location’s rebates with our easy to read report.
