Walgreens Q&A: Rebate amounts

Elsie asked, I just recently started doing the EasySaver rebates, and I bought several items this month. However, when I bought the Aquafresh toothpaste, it was on sale. I think it rang up at $2. When I send for the EasySaver rebate, what price do I write in the earnings column? Do I write the price on my receipt ($2) or do I write the full rebate amount ($3.99)? I think I remember reading somewhere that you can "make money" by requesting the full amount, but I didn't know if this was true, or if it was just for cases when you used a coupon to reduce the full price.


Thanks for asking--it can get a bit confusing. The key with the EasySaver rebates is whether the booklet lists the rebate amount as "up to $x.xx" or simply "$x.xx". The Aquafresh rebate is listed as "up to $3.99," which means you'll only get the store price in return. (Write $2 in the Earnings column.) In order to make a profit on this rebate, use a coupon such as the $2 one (mentioned in this week's Walgreens post) when you buy the toothpaste.
