A Free Meal?

How cool is this? Check it out...

Several months ago I bought two cases of oil from Checker, which were on sale with an additional mail-in rebate. I figured I would spend the time (and the stamps) and mail the rebate in, but had no hope of actually receiving any money. As far as I'm aware of, most mail-in rebates are like the tube thing at the bank drive-up: It takes stuff to a magical place, and hopefully you get something in return. Only the mail-in rebate tubes lead to a basin in the Mojave.

But shortly after writing my previous post, I went to check the mail, and lo and behold, I received two checks for $3.95 each! A shifty mail-in rebate form worked!

Very cool.
