    Hi Torr10. Thanks so much for your comment. I'm sorry you missed the link in the article to the sign up page. It's in the More On This section right under the Cheerios photo. Although I did not post this offer, I was able to find the link. I have not seen you post on this blog before. Welcome. And just so you know, we are a polite and family friendly blog and we try hard to respond to all comments as soon as possible. Feel free to post again if you have any questions or need any help saving money. Here is the link in case you still need it and I will be sure to amend the post Natalie made with a more visible link. I hope that helps.

    Very good idea. Now, a link to the sign up page or the website would make this a good article. Attention to detail would make you a good reporter.
