CHESTER, Va., July 18, 2011 – Zeiss and Remington have joined forces for the very first time to offer hunters two legendary brands for the ultimate combination. From August 1 – December 31, 2011, consumers can build their own ‘Ultimate Combo’ by purchasing both a qualifying Remington rifle and ZEISS riflescope and receive a $150 gift card by mail.
“This partnership between two iconic brands is an all-around win for the industry, our companies and the consumer,” said Michael A. Jensen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “Co-branding world-renowned ZEISS optics with rifles from a powerhouse like Remington creates better value for the consumer in tough economic times. It also helps grow business for our companies and our dealers which ultimately strengthens the industry.”
Customers who purchase any Remington® Model 700™ CDL, CDL SF, BDL™, XCR, XCR II or XHR and any ZEISS Conquest or Victory riflescope, with the exception of the ZEISS Conquest 3-9×40 # 20 reticle, from authorized Remington and Zeiss dealers in the U.S. between August 1 and December 31, 2011 qualify for the rebate. Customers simply need to fill out a rebate form which can be found at www.zeiss.com/sports or www.remington.com/rebates and mail this in along with both original sales receipts and proof of purchase to receive a $150 American Express Gift Card. All Ultimate Combo rebates must be postmarked by January 14, 2012 and cannot be combined with other rebate promotions.
“We are excited about the partnership with our friends at Remington and look forward to welcoming new customers into the ZEISS and Remington families as a result of this promotion,” continued Jensen. “Businesses cannot stand alone and prosper in today’s economic times like they can by co-branding, and Zeiss will always welcome smart partnerships that benefit our industry and our customers.”
