$50 rebate on toiletries, with free shipping

I believe this offer has expired.

Until the end of the month, Amazon.com has a rebate going on Kimberly-Clark and Unilever products: buy $100 worth, get a $50 rebate, and shipping is free. Covered brands include Huggies (but only half your $100 can be diapers), Cottonelle, Scott, Kleenex, Dove, Lever, and more.

I ordered a while ago, and the shipments (7 and counting) have started to arrive. It's quite surreal to have UPS deliver you a huge box that contains nothing but a case of toilet paper. Didn't retailers realize that this was a bad idea in, oh, 2001 or so? With free shipping, not to mention the rebate, they can't possibly be making money on this stuff (though I will note that the prices are quite a bit -- maybe 25% -- higher than you'd see at Target or Wal-Mart). If you don't use diapers, it's also a bit of a challenge to come up with $100 worth of toiletries.
