So, we ran out of regular printer paper at home and I've been printing my coupons on pink paper left over from a Breast Cancer fund drive. I had a coupon that came in the mail from Staples for $10 off any $10 or more purchase, so I figured why not stock up on paper.
When I walked in the door, there was a paper display with rebate information. Rebate you say, interesting. The packs of paper were $5.99 each but had a rebate of $3.99 making them $2.00 after the rebate. You could get two deals with this rebate also.
So, I got two packs of paper ($5.99 each) for $11.98 plus tax, used my $10.00 off and paid $2.13 out of pocket. But wait, remember the rebates! I also have $7.98 coming back to me in a rebate check. So when it comes down to it, Staples paid me $5.85 to take two packs of their paper home.
I just really love it when stores pay me to shop....now if I could only find a way to make a career of it.
