Canadian Rebates

  • Keep Track of Rebates to Avoid Losing Cash

    Tracking Rebates

    Mail in rebates are an easy and fun way to get groceries for free, yet many people fail to completely take advantage of them for various reasons, including:

    • Forgetting to submit receipts
    • Purchasing the wrong product(s)
    • Purchasing during the wrong dates
    • Not following up when rebates don’t arrive on time

    If you’re like me, you have a lot of stuff to keep track of on a regular basis. Work schedules, kids’ activities, keeping a clean house, menu planning, shopping, and spending quality time with your family and friends.

    Who wants to add anything else to their plate?

    Not many, of course, but taking advantage of mail in rebates is such an easy way to try products for free (or a fraction of the retail price), that I suggest you give it a try. Add it to your plate – but, to make things easier on yourself, ensure that you are tracking your rebates.

    For me, I use this mail in rebate tracker to keep things organized.

    Rebate Tracker Download

    This rebate tracker keeps track of:

    • The company the rebate is from
    • The rebate details (what I purchased, where, when, and the cost)
    • Rebate contact information (in case I need to dispute something)
    • The amount I’m supposed to receive back
    • The date I mailed the mail in rebate offer
    • The date I received my cheque (or gift card, or whatever the rebate offer was for)

    In conjunction with this mail in rebate tracker, I also make notes in my calendar about when I should be receiving a particular rebate (usually 4-12 weeks after I mail it).

    A few places to look for mail-in rebate offers:

    1. In stores (hang tags attached to products, tear pad or peelie “coupons”)
    2. In coupon inserts (here’s where to find coupon inserts in your area)
    3. Online (check the websites of your favourite manufacturer for a possible offer)
    4. The Mrs January Rebates Page (we post all available mail in rebates here!)

    Mail in rebates can be a fun way to try new products and purchase favourites very inexpensively. There are new rebate offers all the time, so keep your eyes open for them!

  • SnapSaves – Everything You Need to Know

    Have you heard about SnapSaves? It’s another awesome money-saving tool that you can download – very similar to Checkout 51.

    Today, I’d like to explain a bit about how SnapSaves works, and how you can use it to save money on your groceries each week.

    SnapSaves Rebates Tutorial

    What is SnapSaves?

    SnapSaves is a program that gives you cash back for purchases that you make each week. As you shop, you earn money, simply by taking a picture of your receipt and submitting it to SnapSaves.

    As long as you are making purchases at stores in Canada, you can earn cash back from SnapSaves!

    How do I join?

    You can sign up to SnapSaves on their website, or you can download the app to your smartphone or tablet. Register yourself as a SnapSaves user and you are ready to go!

    Note: You do NOT need to have a smartphone to join SnapSaves (but you get special offers for mobile users, if you join using a mobile device).

    SnapSaves Canada Rebates

    What about coupons?

    You can stack manufacturer and store coupons with these rebates from SnapSaves, making your savings even greater. In addition, you can stack these rebates with rebates offered from Checkout 51!

    How do I upload receipts?

    When uploading receipts, make sure that you include a shot of the entire receipt, and that the receipt is clear and easy to read. If you have a very long receipt, there is an “add section” option, so you can take multiple photos of one long receipt.

    SnapSaves Receipt

    How often are new offers available?

    You can expect new rebates from SnapSaves each Wednesday at midnight. You can claim a rebate every week that they are available.

    New bonus offers are available every day, Monday through Friday. You’ll want to get these deals quick, though, because they are only available in limited quantities!

    A few more things about SnapSaves…

    • SnapSaves is NOT available for Blackberry users (not yet!).
    • Earn $1 for every person that you refer to SnapSaves (they must submit at least 1 receipt before you can get your referral bonus).
    • There is a limit of 1 account per person (not per household).

    When do I get paid?

    Once you’ve earned $20 or more in rebates, you can request a cheque, and it will be sent out to you.

    That’s it!

    Sign up to SnapSaves now and start saving money!

  • Warning – Possible Neilmed Scam

    Neilmed Scam

    A concerned reader sent in this message. I thought it was worthwhile to mention to you all.

    I received an email offer from NeilMed in February 2013, stating that Nasamist Saline Spray was 100% free with rebate between February 11-25, 2013 – if purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart. You could purchase up to 6 items and rebates would arrive within 30 days.

    I purchased 3 items and submitted my claim on February 23rd, 2013. I waited until early April and followed up on my claim. I received an email on April 4th saying “We have processed your rebate request and you should receive your check by April-May, 2013.” The following day, I received an email saying “Your rebate has been successfully processed. You will get an update on your rebate check status soon.”

    I also received another email saying that my cheque would be mailed on the 12th of April. Nothing arrived. I followed up again on May 15th and they said “We apologize for any inconvenience caused to you. We will forward your complaint to the accounts team and ensure you receive your check ASAP.” I followed up again on May 27th and was told again “You can be rest assured you will receive your rebate check soon.”

    I emailed again on June 7th and had not received a reply. So, tonight I called and talked to “Shaun”. He told me that my claim for $40.47 had been processed but that they were “running short on cheques”, and so it would still be a couple of weeks to get my cheque.

    Every time I contact this company I am fobbed off and given stalling tactics. This latest excuse of running short on cheques sounds preposterous.”

    I am in no way saying that this Neilmed scam is real, but after doing a bit of research myself, I’ve found that there are LOTS of people who are claiming that they have also not received their rebates.

    I truly hope that Neilmed steps up and does what is right, by providing consumers with their rebates in a timely fashion.

    Have you had problems receiving rebates from Neilmed?

  • FreshPoints – Everything You Need to Know

    Points to Rewards – FreshPoints Guide.

    Fresh Points Guide

    [Edit: June 6, 2013 - This Rewards Program is over]

    Have you heard about FreshPoints? If not, here is a brief introduction about who they are and what they do.

    FreshPoints is a mobile rewards program that allows you to receive points when you go grocery shopping. These points can then be turned into rewards, simply by shopping at any grocery store and scanning the barcode of your grocery items.

    How does FreshPoints work?

    • Once inside a grocery store, open the app and “check-in” to that store. You will receive 25 points just for doing this one action.
    • FreshPoints Check In

    • Once home, scan the barcode on products you’ve purchased in order to receive points for them. Some items will receive more points than others.
    • FreshPoints Scan Barcode

    • Afterwards, you can rate the products that you’ve scanned and share these ratings on your social media accounts to receive even more points.
    • FreshPoints Share on Social Media

    • Once you’ve acquired enough points, you are able to redeem them for various gift cards or offers.

    Who can be a member?

    Anyone living within Canada can be a member of FreshPoints. You will also need an iPhone, iPad or iPhone with camera, as this app is not available on any other devices at the moment.

    You can only have 1 account per person. This means that more than one person in your household can have an account, if you have multiple devices.

    When are new offers available?

    New FreshPoints offers are released every Friday afternoon. You will receive an email and you can also find these offers on MrsJanuary.com, of course!

    What can be scanned?

    Any grocery item that is purchased in a grocery store can be scanned. This includes food and beverage products, pet food, household cleaning items (cleaners, air fresheners) and personal care items (shampoo, toilet paper).

    Is there a check-in limit?

    You are able to check-in 15 times per week and will receive 25 points per check-in.

    Is there a scanning limit?

    You are only able to scan 50 items within a 24 hour period. You will receive 5 points per scan.

    What if I get asked to take a photo of an item I’ve scanned?

    If a new item is scanned and there is no image for that item, FreshPoints will ask you to submit an image. There is a weekly limit of 50 new product image uploads a week and you will receive 5 points for every photo you submit.

    Fresh Points Photo

    What is a lottery scan?

    This allows you to earn more than the base amount on the next item you scan. Think of it as bonus points!

    FreshPoints Lottery

    How many points can I receive?

    • Check-in: 25 points
    • Submitting an image: 5 points
    • Sharing on Facebook: 3 points
    • Sharing on Twitter: 3 points
    • Rate an item: 5 points

    How long before I receive my reward?

    Most of the rewards are digital and are sent via email. They are usually received within 2 business days. Physical rewards (Esso, Jack Astors, Subway gift cards) are sent via postal mail and can take up to 2 weeks to be received.

    If you’re going to be grocery shopping (and who doesn’t have to grocery shop?), you might as well earn something for doing it and FreshPoints is a fantastic way to earn rewards for doing something you have to do anyway.
