So back in January I bought an outlet timer thingy at Lowe's. $4.98. I took a look at the 2 mile long receipt that came with it when I got home. There was a rebate on the bottom of it. A rebate on a $5 item? Huhwhahuh? The rebate was for the entire price of the item.
Eh, why not? So I sent it in, not really expecting to ever hear anything back. In fact I'd totally forgotten. I mean that was 3 months ago.
I got a check in the mail today for $4.98. YEEEHAWW!!! I'm gonna go get me 2 gallons of gas.
