“We love receiving samples. Testing is the best way to see if we want to serve that product.”

Putting manufacturer rebates into the hands of those who educate our nation’s children.

We do the work

Who doesn’t want more money? Join our membership program today and start getting quarterly rebates checks on the foodservice items you already buy. Our goal is to enrich and nourish our members financial wellbeing and providing exceptional service to our clients. 

Our mission

Here at IPS, we provide a committed service that benefits our members financial health at no cost to them. We work closely with school and camp foodservice directors in order to help them take advantage of the rebates provided by our manufacturer partners.

Our service

The more you participate in sampling and purchasing from our list of over 110,000 approved brand name products, the more value you will get from our rebate program. Rebates collected on your behalf by IPS are in addition to the bid pricing, consumer rebates, coupon rebates, and other tactics used to reduce your food-buying costs.

Our team

We have a dedicated team that negotiate rebates for our members and help identify equivalent rebated items that our members can purchase. Our team combs through data in order to optimize rebate ideas for each and every member, enabling our dietary directors to obtain additional funds.

What our members are saying

  • "A great program, that allows more money to each of our schools! The ease of the program is appreciated!"

  • “Using IPS was one of those no brainers. Before IPS many potential rebates were not being taken advantage of, because of the tediousness of reviewing invoices and the tracking process. That is not an issue any longer."

    Paul Flock
    Director
    Olympia School District, Food Service
  • "I have been pleasantly surprised by how easy the IPS rebate system has worked for us. It has not required extra work by our staff, nor has it impacted the pricing that we get from our distributors. Thanks for providing this service for us."

  • "IPS is easy to use, and who couldn’t use additional revenue? I was skeptical first but have not found a downside to the program."
