    I just started use using saving star a few months ago and have been doing quite well with it. I plan to cash out closer to Christmas. My question is are the funds available right then or is there a waiting period? This will be my first time so any info would help. Thanks !! Tammy

    STRAITLOVER1965 - I can not remember if you have to submit the receipt within 3 or 14 days .
    I see no harm in submitting just in case .

    Question re SavingStar stores you have to scan your receipt for - how long do you have to scan your receipt and send it in? I bought some Chex Mix at Kroger and had the SavingStar offer activated, and I forgot to scan my receipt. You had until 9/30 to purchase. Can I still send it in, or is it too late? I didn't see anything on the SS website about a time frame. I've never had to do this before (try to stick to stores where I can attach my card). TIA!

    I plan to post it by Monday but I don't think you need to be worried about it filling up. We had plenty of room last time. Can't wait to hear about your recipe!

    Faye - When are you posting the coupon and cookie swap notice? I want to make sure I get counted in. I'm just worried it is going to fill up before I can sign up. Momma and I found an awesome recipe for me to make.
