Where can I get information about the $15 gas rebate? I don't see any reference in the circular. Sounds like a good deal. Thanks.

The info. on the American Express Gift card deal is in the middle of the circular. The cashier will give you a small card to fill out for the $15 Gas card. YOu make have to ask for it - I did.

OK, I'm new to figuring out this CVS thing. But I don't get how you made a profit on purchasing $75 in gift cards and a processing fee. Can you make it more clear to me. I'm lost.

You are going to keep the gift cards for yourself and spend it like cash. You are getting the $75 back and the $15 gas card and $10 ecb more than cover the $13 in processing fees.
