Not all of us like couponing, you run into cashier issues, need to find the coupons you will use and not be brand loyal. But you don’t need to use coupons to save lots. Forum member peachykeen2007 posted a brag where she did not use any coupons, but bought almost $90 worth of clothes for under $25 at Zellers during their final closing sale.
Then she went on to 20x day at Shoppers Drug Mart and bought $56+ tax of Physician’s Formula products at 30% off. She used 6 prepaid Mastercards that you could get from cereal boxes last year to bring down her out of pocket cost to 33.79 including taxes. Peachykeen2007 will get $33 back in mail-in-rebates from Physician’s Formula (details for the rebate can be found on packaging) and received 10.400 Optimum points (worth $10 at the lowest redemption level of 8000 for $10 but worth over $21 on a weekend like this one where 95k points gets you $200). SCers know the best way to redeem is at the highest levels, so when she redeems her points, she will have been paid to buy makeup!
Mail in Rebates are a great way to boost your Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum points on 20x days without spending much in the long term.
