Not sure if you realize this but you can get the Kit and refill free after the rebate :)
I didnt know and only bought the kit then read the form again and went and bought the refill. lol

Two things...

One I am so wishing I had a Rite-Aid in Oklahoma and two thanks so much for posting the rebates all the time. It is a huge help I can't tell you.

Thanks,

Valerie

Hi Suz,

Thanks so much for posting these. Did you happen to notice if they had sugar free gelatin?

I just looked at the photo of your "goods" and it's very similar to mine:) Just curious if you've used any of the products before, and if you don't, what do you do with them? I bought a lot of the rebate items as fillers to get free Cottonelle, but with a small apartment I don't really have space to keep things that I don't have an immediate use for. I'm going to give our local shelter a call, otherwise I might put them in a box downstairs "Free for the Taking".

Courtney,
I did see that, but since I didn't have a coupon with me, I figured I'd just pick up the kit. Now that I found the $2 coupon on their website, I may go back for more. :)

Valerie,
I wish you had a RA too! Maybe they'll expand into your area. I love rebates so very much, and I'm happy to share them with everyone else as well.

Precious,
I wasn't looking too closely, but I think they did have the sugar free ones.

K,
I love your idea of a box for freebies! My apartment building doesn't have a main door, so I'm not sure that would work for me. I wish though! Whatever I can't use, I donate to my local food pantry. They have a drop-off box in a supermarket, so I drop off my goodies before doing my shopping.
