    I got a flier in the N&O yesterday from Sam's Club advertising a free weekend to shop April 26-28. It says no guest upcharge as does an email a coworker who does have a membership received; however I found an invitation to shop through April 30 that does say a 10% service fee applies. Have you or anyone else heard about this? I'd like to go but don't want to pay the upcharge! Thanks!

    Faye, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate all the effort you put into this blog. I am trying to be a better shopper and be more thrifty. I spend quite a bit of time (because I'm not used to it yet) pouring over sales etc but your blog makes it so much simpler to go down my list and see what the best price is and pull my coupons accordingly. I really have seen great benefits with my drugstore purchases lately. Since I have to travel >30miles to get great grocery store purchases I concentrate more on CVS/walgreens deals. It's amazing the things I come out of the store with and what little I've spent!! Thanks again for all you do!!

    Wow - heremeaj - I am so happy for you that your binder was returned to HT!!!! I have heard of too many that did not get returned so your story makes me hopeful. As jdouglas said - there really are wonderful people out there.

    Recycle Bank all you subscription is out. Just tried and can't find it on the list so I did a search and said it was out of stock. Bummer.

    heremeaj, you must have been SOOO freaked out! I know it would not have been a pretty sight had I lost my coupon box! I so glad you got it back. There really are good people :)

    Re the magazine subscription renewal, careless is right on the money. Just make sure you enter your name and address as it appears on your current subscription. If you are concerned at all, you can call the magazine's customer service department just to confirm that everything went through as it should.

    GOD BLESS the person who found my binder and turned it in to HT customer service this am. I had just updated it and realized with horror that it had no identifying info on the inside. It was like losing an arm and a wallet at the same time. Please make sure you have info in your binders so it could find its way home if lost....

    Diane I used recyclebank and when I checked my subscription online, it just added an additonal year. I did the same with mycokerewards.com. Now my subscription is good until 2015.

    ddalmas-Please let us know how that turns out with the All You magazine. I was wondering the same thing as Diane.

    DianeNC: I'm hoping that the additional year of All You will be tacked onto the end of my existing subscription as a renewal. If not, I'll get two copies for a month or two then contact them to make the correction to add to the end of the existing subscription.
