Out of all the money saving things I do, individual product rebates (those offered by the manufacturer) are pretty low on my priority list. However that doesn't mean that participating in these rebates has been a waste of my time and money.
I started doing individual product rebates around the 1st of the year. In most instances, I only fill out rebates for products that are completely free after rebate. I watch for coupons to use in conjunction with the rebate because most companies will refund you the full price of the product before the coupon. I look at it as paying for my stamp or tax on the item.
The amount of rebate checks that I have received since January 1st just reached $260.92! Here's a brief list of some of the items we have gotten free with rebates: carpet cleaner, laundry soap, cough medicine, pasta, cereal, and chicken nuggets.
