I made a trip to the grocery store yesterday to pick up baby shower supplies, and Tony gave me a very strange look when I came home with an 18-pack of beer!! (Don’t worry Janelle, the punch was NOT spiked!! haha)
Then when I told him it was free, and I couldn’t pass it up so I threw it in the cart, he said “Oh, that makes sense.” (after all, it is ME we’re talking about). Then he said “Wait…how did you get beer free?!?”
I found this rebate form near the Coors Light display at my Fry’s. Since the 18-pack of Coors Light was on sale for $14.99, it wasn’t just free, it was a $10 moneymaker after the $25 rebate! Plus I used a coupon that I found attached to the case of Coors Light to get $3 off a salty snack wyb 18-pack of Coors Light. I found a bag of Kettle chips on sale for $3.06, essentially making those free as well!
Here’s how you can make this deal even sweeter: Combine this rebate with the gift card promotion going on at several grocery stores right now.
For example, at Safeway, you’ll get $15 off your next $50 purchase when you buy $100 of participating gift cards –> 4 DAYS ONLY! 11/20-11/23 . An 18-pack was on sale for $16.99 there, so you can possibly turn this into an $8 moneymaker plus get $15 off your next order! Plus your order should also qualify for their 4x fuel rewards promotion (good only at a Safeway gas station).
At Fry’s you’d get quadruple fuel rewards through 12/11, as I’ve already outlined here. (Go enter my giveaway!) So if you bought a $100 gift card you’d get 400 fuel rewards, or $0.10 off per gallon up to 35 gallons at Shell or Circle K on four different fuel-ups. Just make sure to use them before they expire, fuel rewards do not roll over and are only available through through the end of the following month in which they were earned.
You can always buy a larger pack of beer too, the rebate is for 18-pack or larger. The 30-pack of Coors Light cans was on sale for $19.99 at Safeway, so you would make $5 after rebate + plus get $15 off your next $50 order.
When I bought my gift card & the beer, I just bought a Fry’s $100 gift card since I knew I would be using it again on groceries. But you’d have to buy a non-Safeway or non-Fry’s gift card to be eligible for any of the gift card promotions.
