Don't let your rebate card expire!

Yesterday I was standing in the checkout at Walmart line when the lady in front of me tried to use a prepaid gift card she had received as a rebate.  When it wouldn't work, she was shocked.  The cashier checked the card and it had expired on Feb 28.  Oops!  The lady was understandably disappointed.  How can you avoid this happening?

When you receive the card, make sure you activate it.  Then use it!  That week!  I always use those rebate gift cards the following week on the purchases I plan to make anyway.  That way the rebate money doesn't get wasted by expiring.

I love getting my rebates but they're no good if they expire!
