Walgreens Rebate Idea

If you have any August All You magazine coupons left you will really like this deal -

Walgreens has select Nabisco/Kraft items buy $15 get a $5 rebate. If you still have some of your buy 3 Kraft get free Wheat Thins or Crystal Light you can make a pretty awesome deal out of these rebate opportunity.
Here is how it goes.
  • Two boxes of Wheat Thins (9 or 10 oz) $3.50 each
  • Two Crystal Lights (2.1 oz) $3.79 each
  • One box 100 calorie chewy granola bars $3.00

Total: $17.58 (I have not officially price checked these, this is just an estimation based on the Walgreens website.)

Use these coupons:

  • 2 buy 3 Kraft get Wheat Thins free
  • 2 buy 3 Kraft get Crystal Light free
  • 1 $.70 off 1 100 calorie packs Chewy Granola Bars coupon

This brings your total down to $2.30. You will need to purchase 12 packs of Kool Aid, too to finish off this deal and most Walgreens carry these. Kool-Aid is a Kraft product and can be used with the buy 3 Kraft coupons from Walmart's All You magazine (I was at Walmart today and saw that they still had the August 29th issue on the rack).

Your total out of pocket here will be $4.70 and you will get a $5 easy rebate from Walgreens plus, you get all the above items for free after that rebate! Very nice!

Walgreens Easy Rebates really are easy. Rebates don't get easier. Here is a quick rundown of how easy they are.

  1. Buy free after rebate items at Walgreens and keep your receipt. Your rebate info will not show up on your receipt but you need the receipt number off of it to submit your rebates.
  2. When you are done for the month go to and create an account. Then, go back to the home page and look for the Easy Saver catalog 'view current offers' link in the middle of the page and click on it. Then click on 'submit rebates' and log in.
  3. Follow the direction for submitting your rebates. Although you can add receipts any time you want you may only submit them as one batch. Be careful not to submit them until you have completed that months rebate shopping.
  4. Choose either the check or gift card option. I do the gift card option because they give me 10% back on every rebate - I make money on it. Then, after you receive your gift card in the mail you can choose to have all your rebates just added to that card month after month. This is much faster than waiting for your check in the mail.
  5. Be patient. Your card or check will take about 6 weeks to process and get to you. After that, if you chose the card option your rebates will be put directly onto your card after about 2 or 3 weeks. Each month you just use the rebate money on the card to do more free after rebate things. The money on your card with grow and you may not ever have to shell out money for rebate freebies again!

**Remember - rebates do expire month after month. Pay attention to your rebates expiration dates so you don't overlook and forget about them!
