    What to buy with my $100 rebate from Verizon?





    Here are the possibilities...

    Note: These are in no particular order.

    1. XS big Dot sights for my Glock 17

    2. A bunch of ammo

    3. A new pocket gun (add $250) will be for the little lady also... Ruger LCP

    4. A set of crimson trace grips for my Ruger Sp101(add $175)

    5. Use it for gas for a few weeks.....

    6. Save it and use it on our first night out together.

    7. Buy some reloading stuff

    8. Put it towards my new .308 rifle(Add $700)

    9. Save it for hard times.

    10. Buy some clothes.

    What would you guys buy with it?

    It's a "gift card" not a check....

    You CAN go onto Verizon's site and "cash it in" by furnishing them with your routing/checking number.

    It'll show up in about 36 hours.

    Go ahead...ask me how I know. :wavey:

    I'd just use it ASAP on everyday purchases, gas would work like you mentioned. I like to keep my wallet as thin as possible and don't care to keep any extra cards if I don't have to.

    When you get the card, it'll make you register it on their card rebate website.

    It offers you ways to spend it, deposit it, or even donate it, I think.

    I just did it about 2 months ago with two different rebate cards. Worked out fine.

    Go get some reloading supplies. That'll get you some primers.

    Read the fine print that came with the card. This "card" can be converted to a check. All you have to do is sign up online and request that your funds be cancelled on the card and that a check be cut instead.

    ETA--they do not need a routing number or any of that unless you do electronic funds transfer. They CAN cut you a paper check instead.

    I've got two Verizon cards that are going to expire at the end of this month.

    That's $100 towards a G23! (Or maybe 2 gigs of RAM for my laptop!)

    I'd use it on something all at once. I used mine at Wal-mart getting a TV and it took an act of GOD to get it to go through.
