    Faye, I tried to use some printed coupons tonight at Target and was told they were not allowed. There were specifically Manufacturer coupons with a Walmart emblem on them. They did not state "Redeem only at Walmart" and I know from previous posts they should be allowed anywhere. After a lively discussion with the Cashier, Supv, and the SM, he explained that if there is another store name on the coupon, then the manufacturer will not reimburse Target for the coupon when they are sent in. I did not have an answer for this explanation. After checking the policy at home it states SPECIFICALLY "Manufacturer coupons can be accepted at the register even if they don't clearly indicate who the manufacturer is, or if they indicate the name of another retailer. If a coupon states "Manufacturer Coupon," it's redeemable anywhere (including Target), even if the coupon states, "Redeemable at Kroger, Cub, etc." (or any other retailer)." Do you know how stores are reimbursed for coupons?

    Faye - how soon will they run another ?? ha-ha-ha
    I earned more points than I cashed in with all the deals and bonus points recently.
    I am tempted to take Raesmom's suggestion to cash in some of the points for a plane ticket or two - a vacation would be nice . LOL
    I hope all is going as well as it can for you and your family and Max is enjoying his new home .

    Observant - thank you for posting the swag code. I just walked in the door from taking my daughter to the orthodontist and just barely got the code entered in time. Yay!

    Teecee - thanks for the Sonic deal!
