    NCSU -- yes, you have to provide it, but they don't charge anything unless you send it to someone else. I have used them a lot in the past -- on the inside, you can add a picture if you choose a different format on the left hand side of the page. I LOVE Tiny Prints (just can't afford them usually) -- but I love FREE photo cards!

    Thanks for the link BTW, I think my brother will love this when it accidentally shows up at my house from Santa by mistake!

    steph, they are asking for my credit card info for the free card? did you have to provide yours or am I doing something wrong?

    laidy I got that mailer was a shame...I think "that show" isn't helping much either. It's definitly a sad coupon pack for those of us who use them as we should. Hopefully things get back to normal soon! I love my couponing :o)

    Tiny prints has another promotional card available until midnight tonight:

    I just love their free cards -- they mail to you free but if you want it sent to someone else they charge you for the stamp :) Only 2 cards this time for Christmas celebrating families -- I made one for my girls from Santa.

    Sorry that was a Land O Lakes Eggs coupon for 75 cents off.

    laidy, it's going to be interesting going forward. The really low face value coupons hardly ever get used, so that too will work against the purpose of using coupons for marketing, and it (coupons) drives the consumer choices many times. If a company wants to increase their market share, they have to appeal to them through special offers etc.

    I don't know what's going to happen but we will have to roll with it. I think the face value of coupons will stabilize over time. I'm really hoping that the new GS1 bar code will allow manufacturers to code regionally, then the face value can be what they want it to be for that region and it won't work elsewhere. That would control the sale of coupons tremendously.

    Just as long as they don't make the regions too small!

    I sure am against selling coupons or redeming absurd amount of them but it worries me to see such low value coupons. I really don't want to end up with inserts full of .25/2 qs. I don't mind short expiration dates nearly as much as low values.

    *Update on Swagbucks Videos*
    Ok, so now they took away the codes you used to have to watch for and type during the videos but now you have a swagbucks meter that fills as you watch the videos. It took me about 10 minutes to fill my meter and I got 3 swagbucks for it. You can keep refilling your meter up to the 150 swagbucks a day. I'm not sure if you get 3 swagbucks each time but I kept the videos on the background so it wasn't that hard.
