How I Saved $11.76 for 10 Minutes of Work. Hey, That's $70.56 per Hour!

Yesterday, I ordered some of this from Swanson Vitamins. First, I looked on Retail Me Not for a coupon code so I got 10% off for that. But then, I found a competitor who had the supplement for much less. I had other items I wanted from Swanson so I still went ahead with the order.

I wrote to Swanson and told them of the competitor's price and sent them the link to the competitor.

Here is their reply:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for contacting Swanson Health Products.
We would be happy to price match these items for you! Please be assured that a $11.76 credit has been issued on your order number.

So, I was paid $11.76 for about 5-10 minutes of my time. If you figure that as 10 minutes work and x that by 6 that is equivalent to $70.56 per hour. It pays to do a little extra homework! 

Happy Savings.

  1. Wow! That's awesome! I have checked out retail me not recently too, and found a coupon for a restaurant we wanted to eat at, which was great. I think its awesome that swanson gave you a refund for the amount you could have saved elsewhere -wow!
