Saving - Cheap Energizer Max Batteries After Rebate!

There are some nice Energizer Max Battery rebates going on right now!  Keep your eyes peeled for specially marked packages.  With all the new toys and electronics hitting households soon, this is a pretty hot deal to come across!

$8 Bunny Bucks -When you purchase 2 specially marked packages, you are elligible for $8 reward.  And each household can receive up to 4 rewards.  You can redeem through 4/30/15.


Simply go online to www.energizer.com/bucks after you purchase your packages and enter the 2 codes.  You can choose an $8 paypal reward or an $8 check mailed to you! 

I located these specially marked packages (see picture on Facebook page) at HyVee (49th/Louise) but I am sure there are other locations for this deal as well.  This HyVee location has the 8 ct Energizer Max AA and AAA batteries marked for sale (on price decline) for $4 each.  So after $8 reward, almost free (just tax)!

$10 Walmart E-Gift Card
Reader Debbie shared with me today that Walmart has specially marked packages of AA and AAA Energizer Max batteries that when you purchase 2, you can receive a $10 eGift Card reward.  And 4 rebates allowed per address.  She states that they are selling for $5.97 per package.  So just $.97/package (and tax) after reward!

Have the $.50/1 Energizer coupon from 11/2 SS insert, even better deal!
