    Thanks Faye! I didn't follow it all the way through I have it printed now and waiting for my savings catcher egiftcard and then I'm going shopping. I've been saving all my points and rebates for my Christmas shopping this year. I also stopped using ebates in favor of savingstar (unless savingstar doesn't offer anything for that company) I'd rather get one big check at the end of the year than smaller checks quarterly. It has really helped put a dent in my Christmas shopping this year!!

    Sorry for the lack of comments on my part today. I spent the day dealing with an unexpected car repair and although I was able to create new posts I was unable to comment on them. Sorry.

    Shelly - What gift card was it? More than likely you can print out the GC and use in-store. Once you get the e-mail from Swagbucks that your e-gift card is ready, you click the link they give you, enter your Swagbucks password and then for many gift card, it will show you a secret code. Copy that code and then click on the link they provide to access the gift card. Some gift cards require you to enter the secret code and some do not. Once you enter the code, if required, the gift card will show on the screen. Click Print to print it out and bring to the store to use (or use online if applicable). Does that help?

    alembi - thanks for posting the Swag Code!

    losltp - that egg deal is great at Kroger! I picked up 3 dozen today and plan to make some deviled eggs tomorrow. My youngest loves them!

    Also I just got my first egift card from swagbucks. It gave me a secret code? Can I only use this only or is there a way to print it out and take to the store? I didn't see that option but was hoping I might have missed it.

    observant ~ as far as printables to my knowledge HT accepts them (with the exception of the ones with the word free on them or the ones that are redeemably ONLY at a certain store), now with that being said......It states in there policy that if a printable q does not scan, they have the right to NOT accept it. I have had that happen to me before :( Usually a manager will come over add up my printables then double them (if allowed to be doubled) and then manually enter the amount......but the one manager must have been having a bad day bc she did not accept ANY of my printables bc they were not scanning (something with my ink) so I didnt but any of my items that day. I believe there is also a limit on the amount of "same" internet printables you can have (just like with the papaer ones) not sure what that number is.....its either 3 or 4. sorry couldnt help ya there

  • raesmom1612 Dec 3, 2014

    Acoording to what I know HT will accept free coupons so long as they are not printable. I have gone with various free product coupons (that were mailed to me not printed) and have never had a problem. If it is a printed coupon that has the word free on it (bogo Free or Free product, etc) thats what they will not accept.......please correct me if Im wrong.

    Hope that helps
