CVS Dulcolax Deal Week of 8/8 Made Sweeter With Possible Rebate

I received an email from Simply CVS reader Charlene, sharing about a rebate out for the Dulcolax that is on Extra Buck deal for this week (see the details in this post).  Some of the bottles have hangtags on them that include an expired coupon and an expired mail in rebate.  Charlene had read on couponing boards that they extended the expiration date of the mail in rebate so she emailed and asked them if this was true.  She received a response that yes, it was indeed true.  I emailed and asked them so I would have a copy to share (I wasn't sure if Charlene would mind me sharing hers).  So if you find this hangtag on the Dulcolax this week at CVS you
can get a $5 rebate.  My daughter found one on the regular shelves but the one I picked up on the new display did not have them.

Below is their emailed response (thanks, Charlene, for the heads up):

Dear  
Thank you for contacting Boehringer Ingelheim Consumer Health Care Products Division regarding your Dulcolax® Balance rebate. 

Yes, the on line rebate form has expired and is no longer on our website.  However, if you have purchased a bottle of Dulcolax and have the original "hangtag" this has been extended until the end of September 2010. Please send in the original form along with the original cash receipt to the address provided inside the rebate form.

Sincerely,

Customer Response Unit

I used my receipt for the Schick rebate. I have my Dulcolax hangtag, however. Does anyone want it? E-mail me at im58"at"comcast.net

Cheryl said...

How generous, Ida, I hope someone can use it. Let us know if someone takes you up on the offer--it will also stop extra emails from coming to you.

I just emailed Ida... Thanks!

Cheryl said...

Fantastic, Marshavivi, thanks for letting us know! Enjoy!

The hangtag has been claimed. Lesson learned from all of this: don't throw hangtags with expired rebate offers on them! I had to rummage through my recycle bin to find this. So glad it is getting someone $5.

LOL, Ida, amazing what we will do to save money :-). Isn't couponing fun? Never a dull moment--so great that someone can use yours.

Thanks for the heads up. I did find a hang tag today. Your blog is my go to for CVS. I check it daily. I did a blog entry of my shop today with a link to your blog entry on the rebate. Thanks again. I am so excited I found one.

Glad you found one, coupon challenged. Thanks for the link back. Hopefully others can get in on the rebate, too.
