Rainchecks

An important rule for you to remember in the business of saving money is to always get a raincheck if your store is out of a sale item. Here is a good example:

Wisk was on sale at CVS in 2007 for Buy One Get One Free. They were out of course. I got a raincheck. It said on the back that it never expires. The sale at CVS this week was Wisk 2/$9 and you will receive $2.00 Extra Care Bucks. I decided to use my raincheck. Here is the transaction.

$9.00 for 2 bottles of Wisk
-4.50 for Raincheck
-1.50 Manufacturers Coupon on 2
$3.32 Total w/ Tax
-2.00 Extra Care Bucks Received
$1.32 Out of Pocket

Remember, rainchecks pay off!
