    Thanks for everyone's encouragement. We ended up buying a Samsung with great reviews from Lowes. It was $1200 off the regular price and we got WAY lucky and someone canceled their delivery so we will get it tomorrow night instead of seven days from now. Thank you to whomever canceled :)

    Twinredheads, so sorry about your fridge! :( If you haven't gotten one already, read the reviews. I saw a number of really negative reviews recently for a certain brand of appliances that I thought was supposed to be quite good.

    Also there is an extra 100 swagbuck bonus for purchasing a gift card on mygiftcardsplus to help with your swago board. I got 200sb for purchasing a $50 ebay gift card today that counts toward my daily goal. I only need 30 more for my second goal today. Tomorrow I will turn in my swago board to give me my goals for tomorrow. Sweeet. :)

    Anyone playing SWAGO. I can't get the visit lowes and activate from the swagbutton to change. It keeps automatically activating on its own from the dropdown. So frustrating.

    Here is the answer to the above problem. On the swago board first go to your add-ons (on firefox it is in tools then add ons) Then extensions. Disable the swagbutton. The restart firefox. Then enable the swag button and restart firefox. Then click on the square you want like the lowes one. Then activate the shop and earn from the dropdown box. This should then allow the box to change colors on the swago board. It worked for me. Also any square that is mobile always do from the browser on your phone and go to swagbucks.com thru the browser and NOT THE APP. Finished my board and will turn in for 300sb tomorrow.

    Twinredhead - My Mom has a Kenmore Elite fridge like that and she loves it. It also has the water and ice in the door feature. Good luck.

    barbiedoll1967 - thanks for the Kroger promo reminder! Will post about it now.

    twinredheads - Ice, ice and more ice! I hope you can save most of it. Glad to hear the freezer (and likely more expensive stuff) survived.

    Thanks for the suggestions Faye. I was able to move all the frozen foods to the deep freeze and the refrigerator food is in three coolers in my kitchen. Not sure if they will make it but at least there isn't anything super expensive in there. I'm starting my hunt at Lowe's today as they are having a 40% off sale.
