When shopping always keep your eyes open and alert for rebates. There are tons of rebates on just about everything. Often times these are “Try Me Free” rebates. Manufacturer’s want you to try their product and hopefully like it and buy it again later so they are willing to let you have it for free. If you aren’t lookiong for them they are super easy to miss sometimes.
Above you see a prime example of a tearpad rebate on Sunkist Soda. Often times the rebate offer is on the packaging. Here is a perfect example of this:
I will admit that I am a rebate addict. I love them and send rebate forms in at least twice a week on something. I use Rebate-Tracker.com to help me keep track of everything I have submitted so I can follow up if I don’t receive it. Very rarely do I have any issues with that. I also suggest making a digital copy of your stuff. I scan it and have a designated REBATE folder that I put the digital image in. You can also copy & print it but I don’t like to waste paper.
Here are just some of the free items I have gotten in the past few months from rebates; 6 packs of Snapple, Finish Dishwasher tabs, Diamond Plastic Silverware, Boxed Potatoes, Physician’s Formula Cosmetics, Finesse Conditioner and tons more. Always read the rebate forms so you can make sure you have everything you need and sometimes you can submit more than one per household. The Sunkist one in the picture above was (1) per person so I sent one in 1 for me and 1 in for my husband!
