    buffhome2 and luvstoQ - It seems like the same thing as when you drop off a prescription and then shop around in the drugstore till your order is ready. I never wait in line at the drugstore while they are filling the prescription and other people are served while I am elsewhere in the store. I do not lose my place in line and they don't need me top stand in line to fill the order. I would have no problem with someone in front of me dropping off an order and coming back to get it.

    Luvstoq- it's funny because I have never seen anyone do that before and it never has crossed my mind to do that. I guess I do think if you wait you have your place and your order gets done. To me you drop something off they work it in and you lose your place in line. I would call a big order into the deli if I didn't have time to stand there. I worked at a grocery store years ago and never saw anyone do that either.

    thanks I didn't see any thing about military id required either but thought I would ask .

    buffhome2, guess I don't understand the problem of the lady being in line and placing her order then coming back for it. Would you have felt differently had she waited there for it? This happens all the time where I shop. She 'was' in line, after all. Guess this type of thing doesn't bother me.

    I love ebates!! Super easy to use. You sign up for an ebates account and when you shop online you go thru their website. Tons of stores and % back varies from store to store. Checks are issued 4 times per year....but they have the option to use PayPal now too. I think you will very happy with ebates if you shop online as much as I do. Hope this helps!!

    ThomasG: Sorry, I do not know anything about ebates, so I am no help there :) I bet Faye or someone else on the blog knows something about them.

    ThomasG: PetSmart & Petco do not specifically state that their sale is for the Military only and they both state on their websites that you can get the discount online, so I don't think you will need a Military ID to get their savings.

    couple of questions :

    1) I hope it is OK to ask this here -
    does anyone do ebates ??
    If so , is it complicated ?
    Does it take long for the check to arrive ??
    Pleae ignore if not OK to ask .

    2) Is the discount/sale at PetSmart & Petco for military only this weekend ??

    Thanks to all military members past & present
