    Thanks that is Good News about the bonus fuel rewards !
    I love it when Kroger offers weekend only deals unrelated to the weekly ad - some I have gotten have been bonus fuel points and special deals on gift cards ( $50 itune for $35 ) . Wish they would have a 3 or 4 day sale - not had one of those in a while .

    BTW...this is why I got the one from B&N for my NOOK. Probably the same for Amazon for Kindle.

    Why am I getting this credit?
    The credit results from the Settlements reached with publishers Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Penguin in antitrust lawsuits filed by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of electronic books. We previously sent you emails informing you that you were eligible for a credit in your Barnes & Noble account. If you did not receive those emails, you can read about the Settlements at Barnes & Noble was not a party to the settlements but as a NOOK customer you can take advantage of the benefits agreed to by the settling publishers.

    I just got a $9.99 one from Barnes and Noble related to e-books. Nice! Mine is applied to my BN account!

    Gift cards at Kroger will earn 4X fuel points starting Wednesday according to my local store. I inquired because Kroger website mentioned 4X deal on Sunday, which made me wonder if some are still on Sun-to-Sat rather than Wed-to-Tues schedule.

    A great way to save money is to change your own oil. There are coupons on faye's smart shopper coupons for $5 and $15 off Valvoline oil. Walmart has the best prices on oil and if you use this coupon it is an even better deal. If you've never changed your own oil it is super easy. Check out you tube for videos. Both my daughters change theirs.

    I wa surprised I even got a refund !
    Someone told me amazon charge sales tax on ebooks when they were not supposed to .
    Don't you love ebooks - especially free ones ? I am reading so many more now - authors and genres I would never have looked at if I had to pay for them lol.
    Check your local library for NC LIVE
    Books ,newspapers, videos to download or stream resources such as : job search, GED & SAT interactive practice tests, homework help ,etc All the services a library offers and then some - espcially good for the small communities with budget cuts and fewer library hours .

    LOL, I'm one for perusing the 'free' or near free kindle books too, so you can imagine my surprise at the amount! That will get me a lot of reading :) Reading a book on the Holocaust now, still makes me cringe to think that all happened. So many excellent free books out there!

    Thank You for the info for posting .
    I have not had that happen until today - interesting .
    I never know whether to post seperate threads for different comment/link/replies or to do an "all in one " post with everything in it .
    I noticed the "slow" too - figured an update for something came thru or web traffic is high slowing stuff down.

    Thanks Faye for the heads up about posting !
    I have seen complaints all morning tht the web is slow today - websites slow to load or not loading at all unless you constantly refresh your browser . Is it springbreak anywhere ? lol

    losltp - this new website design does not allow you to post 2 comments in a row on the same thread without first going out of that thread and then coming back to it. That is probably why you had to refresh.
