    quantumnarumi I may want to pick your brain about ebates! Thanks for the advice! I am always worried about trying something new without hearing a good (or bad) review first! Now I just have to figure out how to maximize my use out of it :)

    pss3 & ncsualum09, my husband and I have been using Ebates for years. We love it! Definitely worth the time and not a scam at all. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions!

    triplettk - on my P&G purchases, I had over $15 in ZVR's and then MQ's on top of that, but my cat printed, so I think it's not the ZVR's, because that alone would have made me well below the $25.

    But P&G themselves said to Raleigh Coupon Dad (he posted this a few days ago) to just write down your name/address on a 3x5 card and send it in with the receipt.

    He had called P&G directly and apparently the purchases required for the $25 were prior to coupons from any source, of course not to include sales tax in that $25.

    bcp - If that is true, that would explain why a cat didn't print for me either. I had $33.xx in P&G before all coupons, but I had $10 in zvrs, so that would have brought my total down to $23.xx before paper qs.. I called HT cust. serv. today and they said they were going to verify that I purchased the right things and mail me an order form. I would think P&G would be the ones to verify the purchase, but who knows? This one's been clear as mud.

    I've heard bad things about Shopathome and good things about Ebates from one friend. I just signed up for Ebates, does anyone have any more experience with them?

  • ncsualum09 Oct 10, 2011

    munecachina- you rock!!! that might just have to find its way into this months budget!!! Thank you so much!

    Has anyone had any luck with Ebates or Shopathome? I hear about them on other deal sites, but I have stayed away!! That still looks like a great deal either way!!

    Quick question about the P&G rebate. I just read somewhere that the $25 total is before paper coupons but after ZVRs. So if the $25 spent was before your ZVRs was taken off, it won't count towards the rebate. Has anyone else heard this? I want to make sure before I send it my receipt (and no, the catalina didn't print for me)

    Thanks for the tips about ALL you Nancy and pirategirl12! I get paid once a month, so that might be on my "extra" list for next month :) Thanks for the price point as well Nancy! I look, and I know some of the "deal" blogs have it, so they make a little bit of a kick back from it to help keep the blog running, but I didn't know what a reasonable price would be... so thanks :)
