Bus/Financial - Marketing / Market Research / product placement contract
French term or phrase: résultats des ventes de bulletins retour totales
I'm currently translating a section on information to be added to a monthly report for a particular company. The document is relating to a product placement contract and stipulates what must be included in the reports on how well this product placement is going. (The contract is written in Canadian French)

I'll give a bit of context - the main phrase is between the asterisks:

Les informations demandées sur le rapport demandé mensuellement sont comme suit:
- Nombre de visites totales et par bannière
- Nombre de deuxièmes locations totales en magasin et par bannière
- Sommaire des activités de la compétition et autres
- Rapport de prix de détail par bannière
- ***Résultats des ventes de bulletins retour totales*** et par territoire (au moment des activités de bulletin)
- Bilan de contrôle des magasins par territoire (au trimestre)

Initially my thoughts went to profit and loss from sales... but the "bulletins retour" is what confused me. Either this has something to do with return slips (doubtful) or feedback sheets (more likely). But in either case, I still don't see how this ties in with the "résultats des ventes". It is probably quite a simple solution (and I will probably kick myself when somebody suggests an appropriate answer), but I'm having a bit of a mental block with this, so any help would be much appreciated!

"les activités de bulletin" - would be the special offers.

More information about what they're selling might be helpful, but I'm guessing the bulletin retour is something customers have to fill in and return in order to get a discount
