I Finally Broke Down

I finally broke down and bought "new" ink for my printer. The last Walgreens refill lasted a very short time and the one before that I got for free since the Wags guy couldn't even get it to print in the store. So, I thought it was time to get a new refilled cartridge and recycle a couple of the older ones. Boring story so far right? Here comes the fun part!!

I usually shop for printer ink at Carrot Ink. I think they have great prices and standard shipping is really quick since they are based in Addison, TX (super close to me). So here's what I did:

1. Visited ev'reward and checked who has Carrot Ink as an affiliate and who pays the highest cash back bonus for shopping at Carrot Ink.

2. I picked !!! They have a $7.50 sign-up bonus and pay back 12%. Fat Wallet was a little higher, but doesn't have the huge sign-up bonus.

3. Clicked through to Carrot Ink from Mr. Rebates and earned $$$ buying ink.

My ink took just 2 days to get here. Yay! Because I have eBay to ship and hate lugging hubby's printer in here. My order was $22.95 and I will get back $2.75.

I really like that Mr.Rebates e-mails you the next day, telling you they got the click through info from your order, how much you'll earn, etc. Very nice!

Here's the really cool part. Mr. Rebates will let you cash out at $10. So, I received $7.50 to sign up and once the $2.75 is posted (it's currently pending, to be sure my order is legit and not returned), I'll have $10.25. That's enough to request a check or PayPal payment. Almost making that ink half price...
