Schick Hydro full mail-in rebate and possible $20+ money-maker!

I’m thinking Schick is trying to compete with all the buzz that Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razors has been creating! At any rate, they are offering a . You can print the form .

If you purchase a razor at CVS this week, you can get it free around $9 overage:

Buy 1 Schick Hydro 3 or Hydro 5 Razor at $8.97, Get $4 ECBs
Use $5/1 coupon from the 6/13 SmartSource insert
Free after coupon and ECBs
Plus, send in for the mail-in rebate to get $8.97 back

In addition, many of the packages have a survey inside them that you can take and earn $20! So it could actually turn out to be a $29 money-maker!!

Thanks, and !

    All I can say is “wow”. And “thanks”!

  • shelly says:

    Will you be able to get the full refund if you use the coupons though?

    • Jenna says:

      @shelly,

      Shelly,

      Sometimes the companies do refund the full amounts with rebates. My experience is that they have not but I know others who have managed to use the coupons and get the full rebate. I send them in and ask for the full refund. Then it is up to the company to refund, I wait for the day when I get the full refund.

    • Jodi says:

      @shelly, That’s what I’m wondering. The rebate says “UP TO $10.99”.

  • Dee says:

    All these deals this week are giving me a headache!!!! I was unlucky enough to buy the razor yesterday so fell outside of the rebate but figured if I just go buy another one tomorrow at Walgreens I can do the rebate and get RRs so maybe I didn’t lose afterall!

  • Katie H. says:

    anyone know how to tell if it has the survey in it? thx!

  • debbie says:

    this rebate will not let me print it. says bd is wrong ………I know when I was born and it was entered correct. any suggestions?

    • Sara says:

      @debbie, I couldn’t get it to take any of the months starting with “O”. 01, 02, etc. Just put in 11 or 12 for your month and it works. They don’t really need to know your birthday anyway – you should really never give that out online (your real date) because it’s one of the things that helps someone steal your identity.

  • Bethany says:

    I’m so excited! 2 free razors?? (Shick and Gillette) What a deal! Thanks!

  • Shannon says:

    How do you get the $4 ECB? Just for buying it? I didn’t see anything in the ad, I’m new to the ECBs, but wanna learn!!

    • says:

      @Shannon, yes, if you use your CVS card when you buy the razor you will automatically get 4 ECBs printed on your receipt. You can use them the next time you go to CVS to pay for your purchase.

    • Rae says:

      @Shannon, It’s on the back page of the ad under the free bodywash. Some areas got a different ad this week so make sure your area is doing it

  • Tanya says:

    Great Rebate! However, I had to make up a birth date…the form needs a two digit month and a two digit day, but does not accept zero as a number. Hmmm…the leaves out quite a few months and quite a few days. Weird. Or am I missing something?

  • says:

    If you live near a Publix you can get it for free. There was a Publix coupon book in Sunday’s paper for $1 off any razor or shaving cream. The razor is $5.99 for the 3 blade($6.99 for the 5 blade). Combine it with the $5 manf. coupon and it is free! You can also get the shaving cream for free because they are just $2 a can and you can combine the $1 Publix coupon with the $1 manf. coupon.
    The coupon book is also available in Publix stores – in case you need a few coupons.

  • Nancy Karrer says:

    In my SS 6/13 ad there is a HUGE ad with a $5/1 coupon for Gerelco…not Schick or Gillette. Weird…

  • Melinda says:

    I just thought this was the easiest way to leave a comment. I don’t know if you already listed this, but Target has a special on Tropicana OJ when you buy 2 get a dzn eggs for free. You can use the OJ coupon from coupons. com last week. (can’t remember the amount right now) The OJ is priced at 2.99 each. They also have the 100 calorie kraft cheese pkts on sale for 1.99 each, use the coupon for 1.00 off from coupons.com last week and that means 99 cents each. Just thought I would drop a little information. Not as good of deals that you come up with, but a little. Plus, I would love to thank you for all of your help that you give. Today at Target I saved $50 off of my bill.

  • Jen T says:

    I think the Schick deal is probably better to do at Walgreens (if you don’t mind dealing with their RR’s) Schick razor – $7.99, use $5/1, get $4 RR ($1.01 moneymaker) + mail in rebate = $12 moneymaker?? Please correct me if I’m wrong, because I’d prefer to go wherever I’d make more money. =) Lol..

    • Jennifer says:

      @Jen T, I’ll be doing this deal at cvs, because I already have about $10 ECBs, I would rather do it at cvs, then at walgreens, to where I would have to spend real money. It works better for people who already have RR or ECB!!

    • Becky R says:

      @Jen T, They are both a $9 moneymaker Jen. $7.99-$5Q-$4RR earned=$1.01 moneymaker+MIR of $7.99=$9.00 total profit at Walgreens. CVS is &8.97-$5Q-$4ECB earned= $.03 moneymaker + MIR of $8.97= $9.00 total profit at CVS. It all depends on if you use any ECB’s or other RR’s on which would be better for you to do. If you use RR’s, you would need to buy another item to be able to use one. I try to lower my out of pocket as much as possible, so whichever way does that for you is my suggestion. 🙂

      • Jen T says:

        @Becky R, Awesome! =) Thank you. I may be switching this deal over CVS then, because I also have ECB’s to use and it would lower my oop. I might also need it to make my total over $15 to use my $3/$15. =) I don’t think my area is doing the gillette/old spice body wash deal.

    • Rae says:

      @Jen T, It wouldn’t be an $11 mm because it is “up to $10.99” so you’d get the actual price back or if they really look, you might get the regular price minus the coupon. I usually have good luck with companies not taking the coupon amount off but either way, you wouldn’t get the full $10.99 off in these circumstances 🙂

  • says:

    Am I the only one that got the $4/1 schick coupon instead of the $5/1? I have multiple newspaper inserts from the Milwaukee area and they all only had the $4/1 coupon 🙁 … still free at walgreens though!

  • Amy H says:

    Gotta love how the form says ‘cirle one’ and says not to write on the form LOL! That and the birthdays needing to be october-december and on the 10th thru the 31st lol! Where is Quality Control? hehehehe

  • Stephanie says:

    I also got the $4/1 q

    and for the rebate form…if you put a space infront of the month and date, it will go through. My bday is 8/2 and it worked fine for me.

  • says:

    Thanks for this link! My coupon inserts had a $4/1 coupon. I am in the Seattle area

  • lacey says:

    Can anyone verify if their Schick Hydro had the survey? What does it look like? Can you see it from the outside of the package, or do you have to open it up just to see? Is it the 5 blade or the 3 blade?

    • Jen says:

      @lacey, from another couponing site it was said the online survey is no longer offered. It apparently is in the package and no way to tell if it is there or not

  • Annie-Michele says:

    did not receive the Schick coupon at all in Indiana : (

  • Jen says:

    Just thought I’d let you know I just entered the info for the rebate with no problems. My b-day is in February and it let me put ’02’ with no errors.

  • Jennifer says:

    We didn’t get any Schick coupons here in Raleigh, NC either 🙁

  • Patty says:

    I ha to change my BD from 09-25 to 11-25…

  • says:

    Does anyone else think it’s odd that they are asking for a phone number? I’ve never done a rebate that wanted a phone number. Is it just to you about the rebate if needed or will the use it for tele-marketing?

    • Rae says:

      @Laura Jane, Not sure, I used my free evoice number that way if they do need to me, I can call them back but if they sell it, it is no harm to me 🙂

    • lu says:

      @Laura Jane,
      Thats not odd at all
      Many times they use the phone # to track your rebate.
      If you call to find out the status of the rebate they will usually ask for you phone # to look it up. That had been my case a dozen of times.
      Think about it . How many people named John Smith or Maria Gonzalez will be completing this rebate. Hundreds!!!!!

  • Angela says:

    I didn’t have any problems with the birthday either.

  • Charlotte says:

    I noticed the form said cannot be combined with any other offers? so it can’t be used with the coupon right?

  • Kassandra Wood says:

    I am in SC and we didn’t get a coupon in Sunday’s insert for this. 🙁 That’s okay, though… The $29 makes the OOP worthwhile! XOXO

  • stacy says:

    this is awesome!! My razor did not have the survey though-I have one I bought last month I’m going to check.

  • says:

    I live in Louisville, KY and received the $4/1 coupon. Still, with the rebate it makes for a great deal! I am going back out to CVS tonight to use my ECBs, so no money OOP.

  • says:

    It is also on-sale at Rite Aid.

  • crystal c says:

    you can also get the shaver FREE at rite aid no money out of pocket. Use $5 coupon from paper and $1 coupon from riteaid website.. watch the commercial get the coupon, that easy. 🙂

  • Michelle K says:

    I’m so bummed! I just bought this for my husband on Sunday @ Vons ($7.99 minus $5.00 coupon) and have tossed the receipt already. Oh well, next time I’ll keep my receipts a bit longer.

    • Honey Smith says:

      @Michelle K,
      If it makes you feel any better, you would not have been able to do it even with your receipt-it says 6/14 on the rebate so you would need to have bought it Monday. I did the same thing-shopped on Sunday and then realized today that the rebate starts Mond. 🙁 Used all my coupons. By the time I find another coupon they will be sold out…oh, well at least it was free!

    • susie says:

      @Michelle K,
      The rebate is for purchases made 6/14-8/18. Don’t worry about tossing your receipt. It wouldn’t have worked anyway. 🙂

  • Autumn says:

    No Schick coupons in Reno/Carson City, NV papers. Not sure how they decided. Thought they like distributing in highly populated areas? Hmm

    • shelly says:

      @Autumn, I got the coupon, but am not going to use it. If you do use it for the razor you plan to submit the rebate on then you won’t receive the full rebate.

  • alyssa says:

    On the subject of rebates: I have yet to receive a rebate I’ve sent off for! I did the Olay $15 rebate back in February and never got it. Did anyone else? And the 7th Generation $5 rebate hasn’t come either. I’m hesitant to submit for a rebate on something that I have to pay $ oop for because I don’t seem to ever actually get the money back! Anyone else have rebates sucess?

    • Christine says:

      @alyssa,

      Alyssa, I did two different Olay rebates and i got both of them. They come in kind of a flimsy packaging, so maybe you just missed it or threw it away accidentally. It kind of looks like something folded a piece of paper and stuck it in your mailbox. I hope you have better luck in the future! It is such a bummer to not receive the rebate, especially if you paid OOP.

    • lu says:

      @alyssa,
      ALways make a copy or scan to your computer. I use copy machine at work
      If there is a phone # on the rebate call and give them your name and or phone # and they can tell you the status. I got my olay and 7th genreration. Some rebates come faster than others. The rebate form tells you how long u have to wait. I add 3 weeks to that time frame before I enquire. I once had a cell phone rebate that took long and I called and they told me it was just sent out the day before and sure enough I got it 2 days later.

    • Lissa says:

      Also, always make a note of the date you call, who you talked to, and what they told you, because sometimes you have to call to inquire more than once! With some rebates I think they wait for you to call asking about it before they send it out.
      Has anyone had trouble with the Office Depot items in April that were 100% back in Worklife Rewards? Mine haven’t been creditted, and when I called, they said it would be 4-6 weeks. It has been well over that time, and I have sent two emails with no reply. Frustrating! If I have to, I will return the items, but I don’t want to have to go to that trouble.

    • Avary says:

      @alyssa,

      I had the same problem…I have been trying to call the number on the rebate form, busy…so today I called, 1800-790-2717
      and they were able to research it, and determined that my addressed was entered incorrectly into their system…and are in the process of resubmitting it.

  • Brittney says:

    I had also sent in an OLAY rebate earlier in the year for the Quench body lotion and never recieved my rebate. I called today and spoke with someone and they are sending me a check for the 9.99 she said “as a goodwill gesture”. I was really impressed! I usually keep all of my information but apparently had misplaced this one.

  • Stacey says:

    Thank you for the info we didn’t get this coupon in our area. 🙁 Therefore I have been waiting to find something else to make it worth my while to buy.

  • Ling says:

    I wasn’t really looking to buy any razors this week as we received 10 Schick Hydro 5’s from when I signed up at RepNation Schick freebie but I got a $5 off coupon and the rebate seemed too good to pass up.

    Thanks for posting!

  • kristin says:

    Does anyone know if the survey is in the Shick Hydro 5 package or Hydro 3 package??

    Thanks!

  • Carla says:

    I can’t print the rebate! It keeps saying my captcha code does not match. Any suggestions?

  • Bonnie E says:

    Did anyone else notice on the rebate form that Missouri is spelled with 2 r’s. I only noticed it because I live in Missouri.

  • Beth says:

    I did not receive the $5 off coupon, but I did receive a $4 off coupon in my P&G from 06/06/10.

  • Diana says:

    I don’t have Smart Source coupons. Is there an online coupon for this? Thanks!
