      Stupid, stupid, stupid me just gave up my 7.99 Benevia rebate trying to get a silly 1.00 rebate on Ivory soap that was put on sale too soon.After the soap was exchanged, I forgot to get the trans # off of the original receipt. Once again my inability to thoroughy think things through has costed me money. Hopefully I can find a small amount of solace in the free Air Wick Freshmatic Starter kit and Toblerone chocolate i got today…….but still, $7.99????? GEEEEEEZZZZZ TAMMY!!!!! *hitting myself upside the head*

        Dont beat yourself up over a few dollars – the next deal will be better. Beside that everyone makes mistakes.

      • Rachel

        Yeah, it’s not worth it to get too frustrated about mess-ups. Think of alllll the money you are saving overall! It’s worth it even if there is a mess-up now and again.

      • Nelanie

        Just know we have all done something like that. Another deal will come along and will probably be even better. Just focus on all the money you have saved and will save!! :)

      • Debby

        I have done things like that several times. I find it diffacult to stay completely organized with all the different coupons, sales,lits, etc. It can get stressful! At times I find myself getting a little overwhelmed. So, beleieve me you are not the only one if that makes you feel any better. I try to look at it that we are able to get so many free things anyway that it really all evens it self out in the end :) Take -care.

        • Debby

          Sorry or all the typos above – I have my two year old pulling on me – he’s a good helper!

      I’m just starting with the SCR and I’m a little confused. It says to submit for Nov rebate, but on the rite aid site it says I have until 12/28 to submit. I don’t want to miss out on my first check, so don’t want to mess it up – any help would be great!

      • Maxine

        The SCR can be submited until that date but once the month is over which is Saturday(tonight)if you have all your receipts in hand then submit. Just note not to accept the one for the gift certificate until you have reached either the time limit or money limit since it is still going on for a few more weeks. I hope this helps.

      Not sure this this is the place to post this, but I love your site! It has been so helpful. I was telling my sister-in-law who lives in Massachusetts about couponing and how great it is. Do you know if there is a site similar to yours but that focuses on the Northern part of the US?


      • Diana

        I was wondering that myself. I am in PA and while I am able to use all the shopping lists for Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens we have none of the grocery stores. I would really appreciate lists like this for Shoprite, Mr Z’s and Walmart.

      Question about rebates … I purchased and received a rebate in November. However, I purchased two more times to receive rebates in November. Can I submit them but not request the check until the end of December? I requested a check before I knew you could only do it once a month.

      • Maxine

        You would have to do your request by mail. I am not sure if it would work to the same address. I have made the same mistake and I had them send my request to my mothers home to make sure I got the rebate.

        • Michelle

          So if I make purchases with rebates in the same month I have already received a check, those purchases will not be accepted? I wonder if I can open another account using my other email address and try to do it on there ???

          • Michelle

            So that did not work. It tracks the numbers. I will try submitting by mail and using my neighbor’s address. Thanks for the tip. I will definitely know better next time. :-)
