Black Friday 2016: Almost-Free Philips Earbuds with Plenti Rewards (you pay sales tax)

It’s not even November yet, but that doesn’t stop the Black Friday 2016 ads from leaking. And believe it or not, we have an earphone option. At Rite Aid brick and mortar stores, they will be offering Philips Earbuds for $6, but you will receive 600 Plenti points back on the purchase, making them essentially free. The sales tax however (if collected in your state) is not refundable, so it’s almost free in those cases. It looks like the offer is going to be limit two and good for Thursday through Saturday of that week.

NOTE: you need to have a Plenti rewards account. It is free to join. The 600 points have $6 buying power in future purchases at Rite Aid and other participating retailers (Macy’s, Mobil gas stations, etc).

NOTE #2: I have been using Plenti rewards, it’s a solid program, managed by American Express and with customer service. In other words, it is safe to do this offer without worrying about having to “fight them” to get your points. In fact, verification of eligibility shows up on the cash register receipt and you can spend the points the very next day after the purchase.
