    TJ84 - The only time I have heard of special codes is through this blog. Check this thread and the what's for dinner thread. Once you get on MCR you will see that status is one of the things you need besides points. I managed to get to the middle status without using Twitter or Facebook but it is hard to get much higher without them. Your status determines what rewards you are able to get. If you can find a friend that will keep the caps and/or codes from the boxes that helps. It takes 25 caps to get 75 points in a week.

    BARBIEDOLL1967 - If I'm remembering correctly, the Durham Coupon Swap group meets too late in the evening for you to be able to easily attend. However, if you were near the Southwest Regional location of the Durham County Library anytime they are open, you could drop off both expired and unexpired coupons at the Information Desk, and they will hold them for us until our next swap meeting. That would save you needing to pay postage to mail them anywhere.

    TJ84 - Go ahead and enter your points. Sometimes there are special codes that offer more points but they are kind of rare. Also, you are limited to 75 points for a week. As best as I can tell, the week ends at midnight Saturday night. Good luck.

    I'm usually a Pepsi drinker but with the Coke deals lately I bought a lot of Coke 6 packs. So I thought I'd try the Does Coke ever offer bonus points on the codes or should I just go ahead and enter them as I go?

    I wanted to check and see again today if anyone knows of a website or a list for the latest catalina coupon deals since they shut down their own site awhile back. I had asked about it yesterday but never got a reply back from anybody. Thanks in advance
