Money Matters

Wow, it’s May and I swear that the month of April flew by because I was busy, busy, busy!  However, I am in a bit of a snit about SwagBucks and MyPoints taking so long to review receipts, you would think that they would do like the over rebate apps and scan the QR codes or bar codes on the Walmart receipts.  The QR codes and the bar codes on the receipts tells them everything that you have purchased.  It’s only when the receipts prints poorly that they have to manually review your receipt and it takes longer to process your rebate.

I received a $15 Walmart eGift from settlement and a $9.11 check from the Wild Planet Foods settlement .  I also redeemed $36.50 from Savingstar, $95.56 from Ibotta and $47.05 from Checkout 51.

Below was my favorite deals for the month of April:

FREE Heinz Mayo
Money Maker Carefree at Walmart
Money Maker Covergirl at CVS
Money Maker Sally Hansen at Walmart
Money Maker Clairol hair color at Rite Aid
Money Maker Carefree Pantyliners
$0.99 Kroger shredded cheese
$1.99 Arrowhead water at Ralphs
$0.99 Kellogg’s cereal at Ralphs

    I don’t know if you have had any contact with MyPoints, but that has been just trouble for me. I get automated responses that tell me they cannot accept screenshots or pictures of receipts for in-store rebates and to make sure you submit with plenty of time for the receipt to be processed before the end date. Which that in itself is ridiculous because even if you submitted a receipt on day 1 they say to allow 30 days to process a receipt and the time-frame of the rebate isn’t even 30 days. I responded to the email and got a response that said my ticket had been updated. What is that even supposed to mean? I responded to that asking what it meant and surprise, I got another message that said my ticket had been updated. 🙂 LOL So, funny and frustrating all at the same time.

      Wow, I don’t get automatic response, I am going to have to update my settings. I am in total agreement with because they do say that it can take up to 30 days for redemption. 🙁

      Same for me Jennifer, I am done with both mypoints & swagbucks. Not worth it.

        I am still waiting for my rebates to go thru. I am beginning to wonder if it is worth the stress. I might want to take a break from these companies until they can process their rebates sooner.
