Exergen TemporalScanner Artery Thermometer for $4.99 AR at Costco (9/29/16-10/23/16)

Depending on your local store pricing, starting 9/29/16, there's a $8 Instant Rebate [costcoinsider.com] on the Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer. Then submit two $10 rebates to get the final price of $4.99 AR. This is based on the $32.99 [costco.com] price on their website.

Exergen [exergen.com] [exergen.com] has a special $20 rebate offer
Exergen TemporalScanner Mother's $10 Rebate [exergen.com]
Exergen TemporalScanner Friends and Family $10 Rebate [exergen.com]
Offer expires June 30, 2017.

I'm referencing this $5 Coupon [exergen.com] if you purchase from other stores like Walmart.

I did this last year for three separate thermometers and received all rebates within 2 months. One rebate requires original UPC and the other requires original receipt, so there's no issue with rebate terms.

Not bad. So you can buy 3 and fill out each of the 3 rebates per item. I guess you'd need to factor in the $4.23 spent in stamps also.

Just a heads up I did this last year, I lost the bar code so wasn't able to send the mother's rebate. Did manage to send the other friends and family rebate, however the check they sent me bounced and my bank charged me $25. In the end the thermometer cost me $50 and I didn't even need it.

Thanks for sharing your experience with Rebate. How was your experience with Thermometer itself? I have heard from friends that readings are not very accurate

My wife uses similar thermometers on children where she works. She finds these are okay and they prefer these there as they are more convenient. However if given a choice she prefers to use the regular thermometers as this one only measures the skin surface temperature so if you are exposed to the elements or sweating, it will not be accurate.

I wouldn't mind doing this rebate after purchasing 3 of these, but kind of scared if I'd get denied using same name and address on all 3 items as gift giver and gift receiver.

Can one person purchase 3 thermometers and gift them to the same person 3 times at their address? I just worry rebate people would deny.It's kind of confusing how they say 3 rebates per person, 1 rebate per item, etc. ....leaves me scratching my head. lol

Also after doing some research, these usually sell cheaper in the store but today is last day to get 5% c b with Chase Freedom cards.

Doesn't Chase Freedom rewards 5% for warehouse clubs until the end of the year?

Oh, is it? Great. Then I might wait and pick these up in the store. I think they may be cheaper but can't go today. Thanks.

I asked the rebate company about this rebate. If purchasing 3 of these, they said the same giver (same name and same address) can get 30.00 in rebates. Then the same receiver can get 30.00 in rebates also. Receiver can be same name and address.

So if I purchased 3 of these, I could do 3 rebates as the giver and I could use my mom's name and address to do the other 3 rebates as the receiver.

Anyone know where UPC is located on these? Would I have to break into the clamshell plastic (i.e. tear up the packaging) in order to get to the upc? Thanks.

Yes you have to open the clamshell plastic, it is on the bottom of the packaging. Also at my local Costco, they were $21.49 after $8 coupon/rebate + tax.

In terms of temporal thermometers, this is the best. That said, it could be a degree off or so due to your skin temperature. Several times I have had a bit of a scare when checking my kids temperature and seeing a reading a bit higher than expected due to checking under the ear after she had been laying on that side.

It is also finicky to get a good measurement. Has to be pressed perfectly flat against the skin the entire time you are holding the button. Hard to do when moving the thing. Many people have a bad habit or removing it from the skin before releasing the button which gives low readings due to averaging several measurements of 0 when you are not flush with skin.

This is the same tool used in many doctors offices so that should say something. I have always found it accurate if you get a good reading from either under the earlobe right past the jaw joint as well as sweeping across the forehead. Checking myself I usually see 98.6 while my other temporal thermometer would constantly show something in the 97 range.

This price is excellent. I got mine a while back on a Costco coupon for significantly more and it was well worth it.

I just got this at Costco in store for $21.49.

Original price is $29.49 with an in store $8 coupon.

Minus the $20 rebate + 2 $0.49 stamps makes it a pretty spiffy deal. =) Thanks OP!
