Step #4 File a Rebate

Rebates are the icing on the cake.  We watch the sales, we clip the coupons, and we stockpiled the goods.  The very last step is to file a Rebate.  These can add another layer of savings to users. 
Some rebates are for goods only.  The Kimberly Clark rebates, the PG rebates are good examples.  These dictate which brands qualify for money back by mail.  These are usually good for $15-$20 on a purchase of $50 or more.  Not bad if you can stockpile, use coupons and hit a sale.  By the time you add these discounts up it’s often over 75% savings.
Then there are the alcohol rebates.  Superbowl is the mega season of rebates.  Most people think Superbowl is about football or commercials.  Wrong!  It's about filing rebates.  Just this week the first big ones were out from Budweiser.  I picked up $6 on prepared foods, $6 on any meat, $8 on chips and soda, all from Bud products.  Then  I saw a $50 on the purchase of a $200 or more TV offer from Heineken.  I just can't wait to work my shopping list around these deals.  
1. Alcohol rebates are for FOOD or product not liquor.  They offer you a rebates on purchases of meat, produce, cheese, salty snacks etc. 
2. When you file the rebate, it matters where you live (address requesting the rebate)  not where you purchase your groceries. 
3. Some rebates are High dollar rebates.  This means that they offer a high value to the amount you need to purchase.  For example, one out now says Get $20 on any $50 grocery purchase.  That is high dollar, because it’s 40% on the purchase of any groceries.
4. You need a qualified receipt.  That means from a well know grocery store, like County Market.  Bob’s corner market isn’t a good idea.  The store logo must be on the receipt, The store address, date and time of purchase must be on the receipt. 
5. You will be asked to circle the Regular price of the items.  Here is why CM receipts are best.  If we are running a sale on ground beef, and it’s regularly $6.50, and you paid $3.50 you will get credit for the full $6.50.  So let’s say you buy $50 in ground beef, yet pay $30 out of pocket, you’ll get $20 from the rebate, you just saved 80%.  That’s fantastic savings.
6. Some offers are NO alcohol required.  Missouri customers. Please get your rebate forms and start getting money back.  If there is no alcohol portion, it’s all refunded.  Missouri shoppers should be getting 75% of their groceries free all the time.  This includes our new stores in Mexico, Winfield, Louisiana, and our Hannibal, Palmyra and Canton Missouri shoppers.
