    Ooops - did not mean to make the Swag Code a link below. Sorry about that. If you click on it you will go to nowhere land. Just copy and paste the code into Swagbucks as always. Unless you want to go to nowhere land. Then, by all means, click on the link. :-)

    Swag Code! Enter ExpandUrMind in the Swag Code box before 3pm EST for 3 SB!

    Theresa, that is what I was thinking as well. Since we can only get 1 GC per month at 2200, they probably all go back up after you get your 1 discounted GC each month. Congrats on the gift card! With coupons and Extrabucks, you can get a lot at CVS for $25.00!

    Roscoe - that may have something to do with it. They are getting some very angry comments on their FB page. I am surprised that they have not offered any response to all the questions.

    About the swagbucks redemption, maybe the values reset to the higher value after you cash in for one of the discounted $25.00 gift cards. So maybe next month it will reset back to the lower amount. I'm hoping that's what's going on.

    Faye, I ordered a $25.00 CVS gift card for 2200 points Sunday. I just now went into the Swagbucks reward store to just look around and all the $25.00 gift cards are back up to 2500 points. Do you know what's going on?

    I wonder if having the +UPs loaded to your RA card so you can conveniently forget about them (out of sight out of mind) eventually drove business down. I know if I lost money more than once I'd stop shopping there.

    Attention Rite Aid shoppers: The +UP program looks like it may be going away as of the 3/29 ad. There is lots of chatter about it on the RA Facebook page and the leaked ad for 3/29 does not have any +UPs in it. I have contacted my RA contact and am waiting for more details. Rite Aid is not addressing the many questions on their FB page so we are just waiting to see what they have to say. They have only posted this:

    "To our valued customers:

    Rest assured that Rite Aid will continue to provide great opportunities for you to save on the everyday products that you purchase. You can check back often on our Facebook page as we share those opportunities throughout the year and continually explore how to add value to our promotional offerings for our customers."

    Once I know more, I will make a formal post about it.
