I don't mind that its recalled, could you sell it to me anyway?

Walgreens - bought the OJ separately because I had worked up a scenario to buy the Visine All Day Eye Itch Relief and submit for the TMF rebate. However, the Visine beeped and wouldn't ring up - apparently there is a recall on this item? Anyone heard of this? I've been looking for the Visine all week and I guess this explains why I wasn't able to find it! Is it weird that I wished they could sell it to me anyway so I could make a $2 profit on the rebate and then just toss the stuff? haha
  • 3 Pilot Erasable Frixion Gel Pens (2 pk) or highlighters (3 pk) $1.19 each, used $1 WAG coupon (monthly coupon booklet, will take off $3 automatically) and will submit for $4.50 rebate at parents' address (WYB 3, on back of package) = $3.93 profit
  • U by Kotex $3.49, used $1 coupon (or April All You magazine) and got back $2.50 RR (monthly deal) = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • Used $1 RR, total was $2.31

Then I bought:

  • Tropicana OJ two for $6, used BOGO coupon (prints today only!) and got back $1 RR = $2 or $1 each
  • Used $2.50 RR, total was $0.50
Rite Aid
  • Olay Quench Lotion $7.49, used $1 coupon (4/4 P&G) and submit for Try Me Free = $1 profit
  • Crest Pro Health Toothpaste (4.2 oz) $2.29, used $1.50 coupon (3/21 RP) and will get back $1.50 (SCR) = $0.71 profit
  • Gillette Fusion Power or Manual Razor $8, used $4 coupon (4/4 P&G) and will get back $4 (SCR #43) = FREE
  • Act II Popcorn $2.29
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon, total was $9.47

Didn't know the Visine was recalled :-( Have you checked RA? that's where I found mine.

Yup, I checked a couple Rite Aid's and couldn't even find a spot for it. Now I know why!

I feel the same way about the Freida conditioners that were recalled. Isn't that sad? I know there's no rebate but I'll take my chances on cheap conditioner haha

haha, I saw that those were recalled and thought - oh well, I really like how they work so I'm glad I bought mine already! I think the recall has to do with some bacteria that can lead to lung problems. I'm not planning on drinking mine, so I think I'll live. :)
