    Newsnut, I have two dresses in my car that just need dry cleaning. I wore one in a wedding and the other for some special occassion. Your daughter is welcome to have one. Would just need to clean it. You can email me at puddintane_nc@yahoo.com.

    Meredith College always has a prom dress give away, not sure if it has happened yet. They also accept donations of prom dresses

    Yesterday at the HT on MLK in Durham, I found 9 oz bags of M&Ms, only the Pretzel variety, on clearance in the candy aisle for $1.87. If you still have a $1.50/2 printable coupon that has not yet expired, this makes them $1.12 per bag. They also had some "10% more free" bonus sized bags in the same pile. The expiration date on the bags is 12/2013.

    Never mind my Walgreens question; looks like there's a Pepsi/Starbucks partnership, so that's probably actually why the Mt Dew Kickstart RR did not print when I used a RR earned from a Starbucks drink to pay for the transaction.

    Walgreens question: I know that if you redeem Balance Rewards points in a transaction, you won't earn any BR points for items in that transaction. I also knew that if you use a Register Reward earned in a previous transaction, you won't earn another Register Reward for an item made by the same manufacturer. But yesterday, I used a RR earned from last week's Starbucks drink when purchasing the Mt. Dew Kickstart drink and another item, and the RR did not print for the Kickstart. When I was puzzled about this, the manager came over and explained that if I used any RR to pay, no RR would print for that transaction. News to me! Has anyone else encountered this at Walgreens?

    Thanks, Faye. The gift card order was apparently not placed. They sent me an email just to verify the account, not to verify the order. Once I placed the order again I got the order verification email and it has now deducted the points and is showing up under my orders.

    So much for me asparagus "deal" at Target. Now, I will need to get some more at Lowes Food and before tomorrow night! I missed out on the HT deal so guess I'll get some extra and freeze this time.

    I am looking for the $4 off coupon from the 3/24 SS and it is not in my ad. Is that possible? I live in North Raleigh, where I think some of you all do and it not there. Any ideas?
