    Faye - I did think about running over to you and getting a selfie with ya, since you are my favorite rockstar/coupon lady! But didn't want to bother, since you were with the kiddies.

    That was you Larinda? You should have said something. I was clearly frozen and not thinking straight. Lol. I hope your gift card issue works with thomas' suggestion. That's a good idea.

    Guess again - yes there will be a daily digital coupon freebie starting Wednesday. I'll post the details and specific freebies tomorrow. It looks like a fun promo. Thanks for posting about it!

    Thanks - Thomas G. I will try that.
    Ms Faye - Good to see you tonight at Staples/parking lot! I was trying to use my Staples/Visa reward card, but it didn't work. ThomasG has given me a way to try it on line. Thanks!

    Thanks- it sure did!
    About the chicken- I saw them at my store @ Cary Park last week like Thursday or Friday I went back tonight and there were gone- not even the spot on the fridge. I asked the butcher and he looked at me like I was crazy.

    LARINDAP3- I had a $100 VISA rewards card I could not get to work anywhere either .
    After much frustration , I called Amazon . A very pleasant and helpful customer service gentleman told me to try ordering a gift card - I did while he was in the phone and it went worked ! I got the ecard within 5 minutes and was able to use it with no trouble .

    Ok - need some help! I received the Staples' reward card thingy for $24 a while back. It has a 08/15 date on it as not an expired date, but the date is for when it starts using up the money as a monthly fee. I called the number on the back of the card. It states that there is $15 left on the card. I have tried to use the $15 at walmart and staples - no one will take it. Says that it is expired. Anyone else have this issue? Do i call Staples or Visa? Hate to lose all the money! Thanks!

    Walking into a Kroger store today, I noticed a placard promoting Free 'Friday' Downloads each day for a week, starting 1/13 -- this Wednesday!

    Luci19lu, congrats on your deal at CVS! That must have made your day.

    So I finally picked out a microwave, ordered it at Amazon, and will have it on Tuesday. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but hopefully I'll get five or more years out of it. If not, Amazon is great about refunding problem products.

    Has anyone had the boneless chicken breasts from Carlie C? Great price on them this week.

    Finally, has anyone seen the Perdue Harvestland chicken anywhere? HT is supposed to have it BOGO this week and there are printable coupons for it, but I have yet to find it on Express Lane at any of the stores I checked.

    CVS has their Christmas marked down to 90% off- I happened to stop by mine yesterday looking for a second paper and scored 2 Disney "village like" sets and 2 ornaments (I'm a Disney/Mickey addict) retail was over $70 and I paid $6!
