Spanish term or phrase: bono de manufacturero
Hello! I'm translating (Puerto Rican Spanish to US English) a list of test questions for employees of a bank. The topic is how to spot possible fraud, money laundering, and other such sleaze.

The question describes a situation in which a loan officer has to decide whether to extend an auto loan to someone. The applicant has only a low-paying part-time job and has appeared at the car dealership with a briefcase full of cash for a rather large down payment.

The test-taker is to choose all the correct answers that apply.

One of the correct answers that is supposed to be chosen is:

"Asegurar que no haya un ***bono del manufacturero***, incluido como efectivo.

I assume that I can translate the phrase literally as "manufacturer's bonus," but will someone please explain what that means? How does that work? Why would this "bonus" be mixed in with the cash? Why is it necessary to ensure that there is NOT a bonus in there?

Of course, if there is a better translation than the literal one, I will be very grateful for it!

Thank you in advance for any help. Oh by the way--I need to hand in the finished translation in 13 hours, so please hurry! However, even if my deadline has passed, I will still be interested in reading what my esteemed colleagues have to say.

Thank you, Enrique. It all made sense with the word "rebate." I never would have thought to call it a "bono" in Spanish.
