Cheating on CVS

No, I didn’t coerce or steal from the drug store — I just decided to give the Single Check Rebate program at Rite Aid a try. I’ve always avoided rebate stuff since it’s rarely worth the stamp and envelope, but this one can be done online using codes from your receipt. I kicked things off with a $2.99 bottle of Garnier Fructis shampoo…get a $2.99 rebate, and I had a $1 coupon. In couponspeak, that’s a “moneymaker”. So the deal is that I’ll get a rebate check for any SCR items I register between 1/25/09 and 2/28/09. I registered online, and the $2.99 rebate has been confirmed…cool. I think I’ll head over for another bottle of shampoo before the week is up and register it against my mom’s contact info. Hm, this will give her an opportunity to torment me with my own money – I’d hate to depriver her of such unparalleled fun.

  1. Love the title…I wonder what CVS will think of your actions though? Well you have Valentine’s day sales to make up. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I say date them both, have a little fun.

  3. OOOoooh. I need to check out Rite Aid’s ads more carefully. Ha ha. I love your relationship with your mom. She must be an extraordinary woman to have raised such an extraordinary woman like you. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Rite Aid’s program is great – do you Walgreens? They give you the rebate back on a gift card with 10% bonus.
