An "incentive" offered by companies where they charge you more money and then give it to you at the time of purchase. Also known as "customer cash," cash back is frequently a ploy used by car dealerships and more recently cable TV providers. It plays on greedy consumers' tendency toward impulse buying. To the dealer it sounds like "here's some of the money you're going to pay us" but to the average consumer it sounds like "I can go buy a new car AND a flatscreen TV!"
Come in today and buy a new car and get $2,00 cash back!
The process of hiring a call center
to perform customer service and/or technical support, or other support tasks, obstensibly because it is cheaper than having an in-house support team. Companies also outsource to preserve their reputation, as they can use the hand of god
