LUFKIN, TX (KTRE)- Wednesday was the first and now last day to participate in the Texas Appliances Rebate Program.

All $32 million allocated to Texans were reserved.

Nearly 39,000 rebate reservations were placed to secure a rebate.

Starting April 16th, customers can use these rebates to buy energy-efficient appliances.

Disposal of the old appliance is required, but an additional $75 rebate will be given to those who recycle theirs.

"The economy and stuff is bad so we need it and we need all the help we can get," said one Conn's customer in response to the rebate program.
