Awesome Rebate Score!

February 27th, 2019 at 08:39 am



I bought a bunch of Better Homes & Gardens Sheet Sets a few weeks ago at Walmart. They were super good clearance prices, between $4.29 - $7.51 depending on the size. I found out there were rebates in the packs for $6.00 back! I bought 28 sheet sets, and only 9 had rebates, but that's $54.00 back that I wasn't expecting! That will make 9 of the smaller size sheet sets free/money makers! Whoo hoo!

Using up some of the Gift Card Inventory

February 1st, 2019 at 01:54 pm

I had apts and errands all day yesterday, so I was able to use up some of our large gift card inventory. I used a total of $335.00 yesterday. MO and I each took a $25 Visa Gift Card for our wallets as well so that they get used up, as those ones are expiring in June, so I don't want to forget about them.

$10.00 Starbucks for breakfast (Christmas Present)
$15.00 Anheuser Busch Rebate Card - Used at CVS for resell items
$60.00 Massage (Christmas Present)
$250.00 Visa Gift Cards (Earned in a casino promotion) - Used for the deductible on the truck after hitting the deer

I also tried to use a $25 Gift Card for Famous Dave's for dinner, but the manager was having issues with the till and couldn't get the card to go through, so he told me the food was on the house and told me to keep the gift card for next time! So I also got 2 free meals out of the deal!

I got paid $57 to buy a Fit Bit!

December 3rd, 2017 at 11:09 am

My work gives $200 a year that we get to use for Wellness. They are pretty liberal with it, and it can be used for workout equipment, gym fees, sports fees, gym shoes, and lots of other things. It's getting to the end of the year and we haven't submitted for reimbursement for anything yet. We decided to get a Fitbit for MO (I have an Apple Watch so don't need one) during the Kohls Black Friday Sales.



Here is what we did:

Fitbit Charge 2 $149.00
-$50.00 Sale Price
-$17.00 Ebates Rebate Earned
-$35.00 Kohls Cash Earned
-$5.00 Discover Rewards Earned
-$99.00 Wellness Reimbursement
=$57.00 Money Maker!!!

We also got a beautiful King Comforter that retails for $119.00 for $19.00! Whoo hoo!!
