Hooray for Free-bates! Interview – I had a rare opportunity to meet with a fellow blogger in-person when Lori of Hooray for Free-bates! visited Houston last week. Read about my chat with her, what I learned about her, and how she inspired me to be smarter about requesting rebates.
My Walgreens Failure Turned Success – I shared with you how I “lost” my $40+ rebate from Walgreens when the cashier did not return to me my zero balance gift card just a few days before it was loaded. Well, thanks to all of the kind readers who left helpful comments and Lori for giving me that last push I needed – I finally called Walgreens. And guess what? I spent less than 5 minutes on the phone and the result was that a new gift card for $43.95 + 10% is on it’s way to me. Talk about great customer service!
You can call Walgreens EasySaver Catalog Customer Service Hotline at 1-888-324-3028 from 7am to 7pm Central Standard Time, 7 days a week. I encourage you to call if you ever have any problems with your rebate. I had to make that first call to understand how easy it is to get the help that I needed. And I learned from Lori that keeping a copy of your submission can be so helpful for resolving any issues with your rebate requests.
Glad it worked out, Heather. That is a sickening feeling when something like that happens. So glad it was straightened out!
Yippee!! I am so glad that you got this resolved and your $40+!!
I know how you feel. I’m new at this frugal lifestyle, and last week I purchased a razor at CVS and didn’t get my $4 ECBs. I do not like CVS, and thought this was just another difficult store. But I *made* myself call customer service and the lady was very nice. I went back to CVS today and my ECBs still didn’t print on my receipt, so I called back and this lady fixed it. My previous conversation was documented but not submitted. I should have my $4 on a receipt tomorrow. Bottom line: I don’t know what I was afraid of….they were so very nice!I still prefer Walgreens.
