Did You Hear About The Guy Who Paid A Semester Of College With Rebates?
I thought this was interesting. Wonder if he ever browses here?
He paid for around $3,500 of his $4,500 semesters tuition with mail-in rebates he saved up.
What really made me think of a parallel to our little world here was this part:
"He shops exclusively online, trolling message boards on deals site Fatwallet.com to find rebate offers he may have missed. It was tips from Fatwallet members that led him to deals at Newegg.com and Frys.com that helped cover his tuition. "
Has anyone here ever really racked up the rebates? I think for the most part, our type of deal-hounding tends to avoid mail-ins. I see them often get downvoted it seems.
