A Fool and His Rebate Money…
Now that the tax stimulus checks are mostly distributed, you can’t help but notice all of the companies out there trying to pry that money out of our hands. A lot of them are offering special incentives for doing so (for example, Sears is offering an additional 10% on any gift cards purchased).
While looking at all of the offers, I realized that we didn’t need anything from any of the stores offering a promotion. Then, we got a flier in the mail from grocery store chain, Kroger. Basically, they’ll add 10% to a $300, $600, or $1200 Kroger gift card.
This one piqued my interested because we shop at Kroger. I’m considering buying a $300 gift card to basically get $30 in free groceries. It seems like a good way to spend part of that money since we’d be spending it on a need — not a want. And secondly, it’s an instant 10% return on our “investment”.
Is anyone else planning on taking advantage of any of these offers? If so, which ones?
