    Thanks to everyone who helped me around Black Friday to find a kitchenaid mixer. By using ebates and the $50 mail in rebate I got a 5 quart mixer for my mom for $220. I think that is the best I can find given that they are usually $349. I love our kitchenaid so my mom will be so excited!!

    meredith - yes, that is bad customer service. It was a pain uploading pictures - made me remember why I go to the store instead, but I was racing before the deadline. I had already figured out my plan B if I couldn't get it to work before the deadline - do prints and put them in a regular photo card.

    Faye, if I do not get the email from them by tomorrow night then I will be submitting a message online.

    LAXMom12, I contacted them 3 times before the code expired and now that it has expired they are using that as an excuse not to honor it even though the one supervisor we spoke to said they can see in the file where we called last week. At this point I think I'm stuck looking for a new deal on Christmas cards or just scrapping them all together for this year. And I spent over 3 hours working on them online because the site wasn't working properly to upload my pictures.

    FOr those who need to ship anything via UPS , Staples has a 20% coupon good thru Saturday Dec 14th.

    Meredith - my code was rejected Saturday night too and I called the number on the web page and the lady said they were having problems with the FB codes and issued me a new one. I was sweating too because it was expiring that night and I had already spent over an hour getting my picture uploaded.

    Get a Starbucks tumbler for $34.95 including tax and you get a free grande brewed coffee every day in January. If you go to Starbucks every day, this may save you some $$. Could be a good gift for a Starbucks addict.

    After that I called CS again and immediately asked to speak to a supervisor. I was then "disconnected". My mom then called CS one more time. She told the lady the whole situation about both our accounts. The lady said I should've already been contacted because of the incident report last week so she resubmitted it and said I should get an email in the next 24 hours either with 2 new codes for me and my mom or a note saying we won't be receiving new codes. So after 4 more phone calls today we still don't know if we will get to use our coupons or not. We do however now have enough credits for free 4x6 photos to last a while :) I've learned Walgreen's "peace offering" is to issue a credit for 10 free 4x6 photos. I've lost count of how many times it's been added to my online account in the last 4 days. In the end, I think I will be taking a break from shopping at Walgreen's for a while so it's a good thing those credits never expire ;)

    meredith88 - that's pitiful that they would not honor the codes. As a last resort, you can send them a message via their customer contact section on their website and explain what happened. Not sure it will help at this point though.
