I usually don't fall for rebates because of the hassle and wait. I tried the current valvoline $5 rebate and was quite surprised. All you need to do is upload a copy of an online purchase or a picture of your in store receipt. I had that done in about 20 seconds. The best part is after uploading it was approved in about 30 minutes and I was sent a redemption link. Following the link I was given the option to get a pay pal credit or paper check. I did the paypal as I had already entered my email address and it was done. It takes three days for pay pal to see the credit but it has been final processed. All together it took me about 20 seconds to do in about 30 minutes I had my rebate. You can do this a max of 6 times and I have done it four so far with similar results. One time I had to wait overnight for the redemption link but it was never more than a day. Gone are the days of waiting six WEEKS for a rebate to maybe come back. I won't put up with the snail mail three month process anymore now that I know it can be done almost instantly.
