This tip is for anyone who receives free formula checks. If your child is on one specific brand of formula, sign up for the Nestle, Similac and Enfamil free check offers. When the checks arrive, use them all.
Say your child is only on Similac, take the cans of the other formula back to the store without a receipt and just say your child did not like the brand and you want a store credit for get the correct brand you use. Since the store was already paid for the original checks, you're not cheating anyone. Formula is returnable as long as it not opened.
Be sure you're not lying when you return the formula and say your child didn't like it. Always be honest.
I'm sorry that really sounds dishonest and I would never recommend it.
Where I am at you cannot return formula at all. It is against health regulations.
I'm sorry but I agree that this is totally dishonest. While you may not be "stealing" from the store, you are stealing from the individual manufacturers by using their coupons to obtain a competitor's product. You are also being dishonest by lying to the store, being covert in going from store to store so you won't be discovered and manipulating the system to your advantage. I understand trying to save money on baby formula, but I sure could not do this kind of thing with a good conscience at all. You should stick with the coupon exchange. At least that is honest. Please reconsider!
Too bad you didn't breast feed. It's much more relaxing.
Oh My GOSH please don't do this!!!
This is 100% unethical and it is STEALING!!
No wonder prices are out of control!!
Forget the coupons and checks. I use the generic soy formula put out by Sam's or Target. My pediatrician said they were just as good as the name brand expensive formulas. Member's Mark Soy is 3lb can for under $20, whereas Similac is $27 to $32 dollars. Your system is time consuming, waste of gas, and not fair to fellow consumers.
I have a four month old son and I am finally getting some sleep, key word is "some".

I tried returning a can of formula once WITH a receipt and they wouldn't let me. They said that it was because of the WIC checks they couldn't do it. This was at a store that takes back just about anything too.
This is totally dishonest! You might as well go in and steal a can of formula! If you are on such a tight budget that you need to do this why not sign up for WIC! This is the reason formula among other things are so high now!
Just breastfeed your baby; all women that give birth CAN breastfeed their infant. Your milk is superior to anything else you will every feed your infant/child.
Not all can breast feed! I had emergency surgery after birth and my milk supply was damaged! Do not assume ALL can breast feed because I would have loved to and tried very hard! Just because you were so fortunate does not mean everyone is!
My daughter needs help with getting formula. The doctor changed her mill and she is on similac now if you could send her some coupons,it would really help. I am trying different places, but it is hard to find anything. Ashley arnold 18 sunview lane johnston S.C 29832. Please let me know. Thank you mjarnold8 AT aol.com
