Another Olay Rebate!

You just got to love Olay! They have another rebate out! This time the rebate is for Olay Quench body lotion. Purchase any Olay Quench body lotion (excluding travel size) and receive a full rebate by mail. Purchase must to made by April 16, 2010 and postmarked by April 30, 2010.

To sweeten this deal and make it a moneymaker, use the $1 off Olay Quench body lotion coupon from the 3/7 P&G Sunday coupon insert. Remember manufacturers usually reimburse you for the amount before coupons. Nothing better than free lotion and making a dollar. :)

I had tried to use (2) $1/2 Classico Sauce printables but the manager wouldn't let me. She said that the $1.50 off ground beef coupons applied to the Classico Sauce as well. I tried to explain that the coupon clearly stated that it was $1.50 off ground beef when you buy Classico sauce so the coupon applied to the ground beef. She didn't except that and I didn't feel like fighting over $2. Oh well....I still had a great trip!

I made $6.99 at Staples!

We went out with the kids tonight to do a little deal shopping after we hit the playground. First stop was Staples to use up my Staples Rewards certificates. I have $36.00 in rewards from recycling my ink cartridges. You get $3 per cartridge and you can recycle up to 10 cartridges a month. At the end of the month, they email you your reward. I have $18 in rewards from February and $18 from March. Staples paid me to bring home the following stuff. :)

2 Gourmet Lollipops, $1
1 XL Cyan Ink Cartridge, $14.99
1 XL Magenta Ink Cartridge, $14.99
1 Ream of 50% Recycled Paper, $8.99
-$6.01 (15% off your total order coupon)
-$18.00 February Staples Reward
-$18.00 March Staples Reward
Total Due: NOTHING! Completely FREE!

My total was actually less than my coupons so I received back a $2.04 Staples Reward to use on my next purchase. And here is the best part - there was a rebate for the ream of paper. So I can submit for the $6.99 rebate! Staples just paid me $6.99 plus I paid nothing for all my wonderful office supplies. :)

*$10 check from Coors Light - printable rebate I told you about in January

*$10 check from MGD64 (this was for buying produce and chicken - no beer purchase required so I was reimbursed for groceries I would already buy. Me likey that!)

*$7.50 check from Coors Light - this was the other printable that was available last month
