The Fluke Cash for Clunkers program helps imager users upgrade to state-of-the-art Fluke thermal imagers, even in tough economic times. The program provides a $500 AMEX gift card rebate to anyone who buys a new Fluke thermal imager (infrared camera) and ships their old imager to Fluke for disposal. Purchase must be made between Aug. 15 and Sept. 30, 2009.

  • Send in their old imager(s) along with the original sales receipt(s) or sales invoice(s) for their new Fluke thermal imager. (Fluke model number and purchase date must be clearly noted on the proof of sale.)
  • Complete the information on the rebate form and send the form, receipt and old imager to:
