I often give away things to the employees, but I would not do it on something with so many moving parts because the rebate may hit a snag, and then I am actually out money.
But for ibotta and Q deals. I know before I leave the store. So then it is Xmas 4 the employees sometime.
I ended up going in for this deal. Spent $3.15 on 5 Magnum ice creams after coupons. The ice cream case was right next to the self checkout so as soon as I paid for them, I put them back in the case. Got over 12,000 Fetch points so made about $9 with no waste.
