    Thanks for posting the code, Alembi!

    Jdouglas - yep - the rumor is super doubles is starting next Wednesday and it looks really good for the event. AND there are 4 coupon inserts coming out on Sunday to get you restocked! Yay!

    I am hearing rumblings that HT SD may be confirmed for the week of January 7. It has been so long since I've done anything with my coupons, I don't even know if I have any that aren't expired. Guess I better get busy! ;)

    Thanks, Stephanie. I'm certain it was my shops that shot my second goal up. We purchased a new tv from best buy as well as a few other large ticket items, so my shop and earn SB #'s were waaaaay up there. Guess it will come back down in a few weeks when it realizes that I'm never gonna reach those numbers!

    smolder13 -- my second goal is in line with the last week or two, and I had a 900+ Shop & Earn that posted a week or so ago. Apparently they have an algorithm that determines what the 2nd goal should be based on historical earnings, and it takes two or 3 weeks of not reaching it by a significant amount to bring the second goal back down. (I've been tracking my own goals vs. earnings since April so this is based only on what I have observed from that, not from anything "official" from Swagbucks.)

    Oh, and your mileage may vary. :-)

    Fuquay Aldi has $0.25 bags of fresh cranberries. I didn't get any because I don't like them, but thought some of you might.

    Dr D - awesome find on the eggs! Thanks for posting. Hopefully some other readers in the area can score that deal as well.

    smolder13 - my SB first goal is also low and my second goal is twice the first goal. But I also had some shop and earns credit earlier in the week. As long as you make the first goal, that is what counts towards the bonuses. I usually only shoot for the first goal if the 2nd is way out there. I have not heard about any permanent change.

    Has anyone else completed their first goal on swagbucks this morning to find that their second goal is an insane number? My first goal was just a bit lower than normal, but the second goal is almost 400 SB! I will never in a million years get that. LOL. Has there been some word about this being a new permanent change? Or did the shop and earns I did around black Friday (which all credited last week) mess me up?

    Durham Egg Deal! The Aldi in Durham has their eggs marked down to $0.50/dz this morning because they have LOTS of them in stock dated 1/5/14.
