Is it wrong to try to collect a second rebate?

I frequently send in rebates. Most put a limit of one rebate per household. If I send a second rebate, but in my mother’s or sister’s name, is this wrong?

“Household” refers to the inhabitants of a single address. If your mother and sister live at another address, they can certainly collect a rebate and give it to you if they wish. For you to attempt to collect such a rebate in their names – whether they live with you or not – would be petty fraud.
