When you’re poor like me, you find any way to get some money. I’ve spent the better part of this morning filling out rebate forms that I never got around to. This should bring in a $30 for a tool the hubby bought a few months ago, a $10 gas card (for getting my oil changed at Jiffy Lube) and $68 in unclaimed property (from my old auto insurance). I had heard on the news last year about the unclaimed property thing and just forgot about it after the baby/move/etc. But it is MUCH needed now and glad I can tap into it!
Here is a link for the California site for unclaimed property. To look up a different state, do a search for your state’s controller and UCP or Unclaimed Property. Good luck!!
Also, if you have an unforgotten rebate, call the company. Ours was in Iowa, and even though the rebate period ended over a month ago, the rep was nice enough to resend me a form and give me an address & contact person to send it to.
