    Asherer I haven't done it yet but I read multiple receipts are ok, up to 4. If you can put all receipts in the same picture it's better, because some folks with a photo for each receipt had to straighten things out when their rebate was initially rejected. But if you can't fit everything on one picture and have to call them, it's fine, just a bother that's all.
    I would call the rebate people and ask on the out of state shopping? It sounds a little risky to me. Good luck!

    MIA - Thanks.

    I also asked my DH. He said to scan it as an image or picture not a document. I'll try that tonight.

    Additional rebate questions. I am leaving town Thursday and will be gone until early June. Will grocery purchases made out of NC count as long as I have a NC address? Also, does it have to be $50 in one trip or can multiple receipts be submitted to comprise the $50? Thanks

    ASCHERER - I can't answer the details for acceptable formats for this rebate, but in general if I end up with an image in a format which is not acceptable for a particular upload, I import the image to Paint, then Save As in the desired format. HTH

    Ascherer- I did the rebate using my phone also to submit the receipt using my cellphone camera.

    Rebate question. I spent $51.00 after alcohol was deducted and have my receipt ready. I just need to scan it. However when I scan it, I can only get it into a PDF or TIFF. How do I get it into the required JPEG, GIF, or PNG format? Are all of the acceptable formats picture formats? Thanks
