Olay Gift Sets - Free after Rebate, Small MM after Cash Back!

WOW! I was hoping they would offer this deal again this year. For those of you that did this last year, no worries, this is a new rebate timeframe, so you can net yourself a free Olay gift set, and a decent money maker for those of you with a Discover Card!

If you have a Discover card, go through ShopatHome to receive 2% back)

Whichever site you go through, once you get to through them, type Olay gift set in the search field. It will bring up the two basket options shown above for $9 each.
After tax my total was $9.74 with free shipping.
Then head here and print the Allure magazine rebate form. If you read the fine print on this form, you can either choose a magazine subscription or you can choose to have a rebate for the value of the subscription (currently 9.99) You will just need to mail this form, the card inside your Olay gift basket and a copy of your receipt within 30 days of purchase.
After the cost of your tax and stamp, you will get the gift basket for just under .25.
BUT, if you went through ShopDiscover, you will get back 5% cash back in your account, so ~ .45, making this a very small money maker.
If you go through Shopathome, you get 2% back so ~.18 making this a break even!

Thanks Who Said Nothing in Life is Free.

Is there a limit on how many you can get per household? I didnt see anything in the small print.

I did not see an limit either, just make sure you make copies of everything. You will probably have to call on all the rebates over 1 per household because these clearinghouses tend to prey on the ignorant consumer. I would not expect you will just be reimbursed all at once for all of them and will have to fight for your money after the first, but certainly well within your right as they do not list a limit (at least not that I could see)

ZM - did you get a receipt from your pckg from WM? I did not.
Do you think the confirmation receipt from the website order will suffice for the refund rebate?
