Great Rebate Day

Don't you just love opening your mailbox and finding rebate checks in there? Today was fantastic. I got: $4.79 Snapple rebate, $10 Heineken rebate on $10.01 of bottled water, $15 Heineken rebate on $25 of summer essentials and $25 Amstel rebate on $100 of groceries. Love that! I was very psyched to see the Snapple rebate because I wasn't sure if that one would come through. I bought a 6 pack of green tea for that rebate, but the UPC wouldn't scan at the store. The cashier scanned a pack of lemon tea instead, but it didn't occur to me until I got home that this UPC switch might give me an issue. The receipt said lemon and I submitted a UPC for green tea, but Snapple gave me my moolah anyway! Now that's good customer service.

  • 4 Marcal rolls of toilet paper four for $3/$0.75 each (must buy four for this price)
  • 4 Marcal tissues $0.99 each
  • 4 Milo's Kitchen Dog Treats $2.50 each, used four $1.50 coupons (6/26 SS) = $4 or $1 each
  • Got back two $5 catalinas (for buying six qualifying items x 2) and two catalinas for a FREE reusable bag, total was $11.56 (got $0.10 bag discount)
There are a bunch of great things about this week's deals. First - they're stackable. There are a ton of deals this week, but the deal I did was a $5 catalina and free bag when you buy six qualifying items. I did the deal twice at the same time and got back two $5 cats. You can do the deal up to four times at once. Second - the catalinas are good right away, so I used the two $5 catalinas I got towards another round of this deal at another store. Third - without the dog treats, this deal gets you totally FREE toilet paper and tissues! You can buy 4 toilet paper rolls for $3 and two tissues for $1.98 = $4.98 and you get back a $5 catalina. Granted, Marcal doesn't make the most plush items out there, but free is free.

Rite Aid
  • Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor $8.79 ($10.99 reg price, 20% discount), used $4 coupon (7/31 P&G) and got back $5 UP (Limit 2) = $0.21 profit
  • Oral B Complete or 3D Action Power Toothbrush $5.99, used $3 coupon (7/31 P&G) and will get back $2.99 (SCR #39) = FREE
  • Used $1 non-prescription purchase coupon (Aug. Video Values) and two $3 UP's, total was $1.33
Repeated on DBF's card

I also found a TMF rebate on a package of USPS Bandit packaging tape ($4.23 with 20% discount). I'm going to keep an eye out for another package with this rebate because there's a SCR on these this month! When you buy two, you'll get back $4 (SCR #52, Limit 2 offers). If I can find another TMF, that's a $4 profit. If I can't find a TMF, there are also packages with a $2 rebate on them, that would make this a $1.77 profit. Either way, that sounds good to me. I submit rebates at multiple addresses (mine, DBF's and my parents') so you'd have to have at least two addresses to make this work for you too.

Love the comment about the FREE tp and tissues. I had just bought some Cottonelle TP and my friend went in there yesterday and I guess there were no more tissues (I still have a huge stockpile in the pantry closet, but I don't go into 'that' bathroom.). That's DH's and company's bathroom. So he comes out and goes "your tp is like cardboard' It's the aloe e one for when your wiping...not to blow your nose. LOL. So it was scratchy. Perhaps he just likes the free/cheap stuff LOL
