First Rebate Received for My $50 CVS Gift Card Challenge

I just received my first rebate from items purchased on my current $50 CVS gift card challenge.  It was the P&G $10 back for spending $50 (I purchased CG free with coupons and sent in the receipts--I also got a $10 CVS gift card from the deal the week I purchased it). It is actually prepaid Visa Debit Card.  So my total CVS spending power just increased by $10 for this Beginner's $50 CVS Gift Card Challenge.  Here are my current totals:

Total Saved:  $ 764.17  (including tax)
Total Spent:  $  30.01 (including tax)
Total Value of Products Purchased:  $ 745.23 -- sale prices (without tax)

Gift Card Balance:  $ 30.56*
Extra Buck Balance:  $ 21.82* (I began with no extra bucks with this gift card)
Gift Card Balances from GCs earned with this card: $9.43*

Mail In Rebates received:  $10.00*

*Total CVS Spending Power:  $71.81

This is awesome! So happy to hear you got that CG rebate. Still waiting for mine but I know it will be here soon.

No one beats the CVS promotions! And, not one had done more to educate shoppers like Simply CVS! :-)

Keep up the great work Cheryl. It's appreciated much more than you realize I'm sure.

Thanks, Pat, I thought of you first when I got the envie! I mailed mine in like 11/1 or 2 so it was quick.

I am going to have to watch for those rebates! Thanks for much for all you do.

Thanksgiving shopping was so much fun! Got alot of things, even if they weren't considered free it was still a great deal! (zantac, nivea, etc) Got all the freebies a nd I ended up buying 4 bottles of nailpolish last week, it will make a great gift for my niece who's 6, she'll love that if I throw them in a basket with some fancy nailfiles etc. :)

Debbie, I try to post any I find on Thursdays. There is a link in the side bar here (under Coupons) that says "rebates" and all I find will be listed in posts thru that link.

Glad you had a great BF. I love to make up little gift baskets from my CVS shopping.

glad you got your rebate back! i got mine back last week and i was wondering if i did the p&g one if i can do the OLAY rebate as well.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Yes, the Olay one is different.

I got mine two Cheryl, as a matter of facts, I got two the same day from P&G, one for Olay, another one for CG, now i am confused, I remember i have put in for a Olay rebate $50 get $20, so long ago and i havent receive it yet, I mailed these two around the first week in Nov and remember calling them first to find out what was the status of my pending ($20) rebate and they said it was approved but not mailed yet, so I am wondering if my rebate got lost in the mail, have you heard of anyone that have gotten this one yet? It was for purchases done before Sept 16th

i was so excited that typed i got "two" Cheryl instead of I got it too Cheryl, LOL

Sobeida, I have not noticed chatter on that one. You may want to go to our Simply CVS Facebook page and ask--some readers there might have some info on it. I didn't do that one personally so can't tell you about mine.
