    lizard - have you contacted Swagbucks directly? That is your best bet. I have found their customer service to be very good. You can go through the Contact section at swagbucks.com.

    ya know, lots of your stuff is great but, I downloaded Swagbucks to check it out....now, I can't get rid of it. So much for the uninstall provided!!!

    It looks like the HT on Falls of the Neuse (Falls Pointe) has also stopped carrying the quart size of the Silk Fruit and Protein. I haven't been able to find that size for the past 2 weeks.

    @ DianeNC - they were at the HT in Raleigh Villiage, but they were running low on the quart size when I was there this morning.

    kat08858 - my local HTs (in Cary) just did a "reset" in that area, and no longer carry the quart size of Silk's Fruit & Protein (which, like yourself, I love!) - they're now just carrying the half-gallon. I stocked up on the quart size with those same coupons you mentioned before they stopped carrying it, but would love to grab some more of the quarts - as you mentioned, it's a great deal with the coupon! Which HT did you find them at?

    I stopped at HT today and the silk fruit and protein quarts were on sale for 1.77 - with a .75 coupon doubled from last weeks paper they were .22! i happen to love these.

    Thank YOU, jdouglas13 !
    I am so glad I asked about the Rx deals and insurance - now I am mad at myself for what I might have saved last year if I had known I could use those deals ! If I find out any info about prescription price matching I will share it .

    I agree about the donation bins needed year round . The people in need are in need all the time especially now that the holidays are over and they are invisible again.

    Is anyone else LOVING the Staples free after rewards the past few weeks? I have been stocking up on binders for my kids for next school year and since they have them again this week I can get them new ones for right now since their binders haven't held up well! So excited about that! Also found out the Ronald McDonald house would love photo paper donations so I am going to use my rewards from December (batteries, etc.) to get them paper for $1 and get the rest of my money back :) LOVE Staples!

    Thanks for the info about donating food. I wish the grocery stores had the bins up year-round. I think people may be more likely to donate when the groceries are right there.

    One other thing I wanted to add after reading your post, these deals that are around right now are for RX transfers. They won't work with a one-time RX.
