Walgreens and Rebates

January 19th, 2007 at 10:05 am

I've never tried rebates before, but I couldn't pass up trying Walgreens this month.

I got two boxes of o.b. tampons for $10
Excedrin for $3
And Bought $10 (5boxes of cereal) -$3 in coupons.

For $20 total. Walgreens will give me a $18 rebate +10% =$19.80 as a gift card.

So for $.20 +.37 for the stamp.. I'm pretty happy. My plan is to use the giftcard to pay for future rebates. Since most of these are shampoo, toothbrushes and all.. anything I can't use will be donated to a local shelter that needs them desperately and I'll continue to get the 10% bonus each month. Where else can you "make" 10% a month on your money? I realize of course that I can only "spend" it at Walgreens, but they have some of the cheapest prices for things we buy regularly so I shop there anyway.

    I, too, am trying the Walgreen's rebates. They are more expensive than other places here, but with the coupons, sales and rebates, they come out better. I'm going for the extra 10% also!

    Check out hotcouponworld.com. These women are amazing when it comes to identifying sales, matching them up with coupons, etc. They have forum threads for Walgreens, RiteAid, Eckerds, CVS, and every grocery store known to man (or woman). Amazing...

    I like the Walgreens Rebate too. Shopko now has a simular program like Walgreens. If you ask for the rebate with a gift card you get a 10% bonus.
    Dollar General is getting into the rebate thing too. BUT, they do not offer a gift card. Strictly cash rebates.

    If you have a Flex Spending Account. You can submit the full price and take the rebate and actually come out with cash ahead. I never really read the rules of Flex spending accounts to see if it is legal. But I look at it this way. YOU ARE paying the full price up front. And there is no Guarantee you will get the rebate.

    Some things you want to be careful about with these type of rebates. Walgreens is very picky make sure you circle the product on the receipt with the offer number. They will not honor the rebate unless you circle the product on the receipt and have the offer number next to it.

    Menards has some really good rebates too, and they are getting more into the grocery business as well.
