Remember all the free Zegerid from Rite Aid awhile back? It was when the Zegerid was completely free after in ad coupon and manufacturer coupon (maybe there was a video value coupon too?).
Well I “bought” 8 boxes.
Each time I “bought” a box a $7 +UP would print.
Each time I “bought” a box it put me at the point where I could use a $5/20 coupon.
Each time I “bought” a box I submitted a mail in rebate for $10. (I got all 8 at different addresses already)
After I “bought” all of these boxes I sold them on ebay this week for $36.60.
I took my mom on the shopping trips when I bought all the Zegerid. Mom was really worried about me “buying” all of this “stuff” I wouldn’t ever use… I was able to “show” her that using coupons to buy stuff you will not use is a REALLY good idea.
8 $5/20 coupons= $40 in “stuff” I will use!
8 $7 +UP’s to use to buy “stuff” I will use!
8 $10 rebate checks that I can use for what ever I want… or $80 in cash in my checking account!
8 boxes sold on ebay for $36.60
Total amount made for “buying” something I don’t want/use/need… $212.60
