    Luvmycanes, it may be worth a call back to the N&O. Ask for the customer retention department.

    Got the strawberries at Wilson HT today. Surprised to see that they are local. Beautiful and delicious.

    thank you VLYNN -- customer service was not helpful at all. When I called they said no, there is no Wednesday Sunday option. I should have clarified and they should have asked about it being the Cary news on Wed, not the N&O wed paper.

    LUVMYCANES re N&O: you can get the Sunday only delivery and they will deliver a free copy of the mid-town news (or whatever they print for your area) and most of the grocery ads on WED. I'm near the farmers market and I don't get HT or Lowe's in my WED freebie paper, but all the others (food lion, carlieC's, kroger, aldi's) are there. With the Sunday only delivery, you also get the Thanksgiving paper.

    So I got mad at the N&O and let my subscription lapse. I find I really miss the Wednesday grocery store ads and the Sunday ads and coupons. Does anyone know if there is a way to get just Sunday and Wednesday delivered? I really don't want the environmental impact of the wasted paper and delivery persons miles just toss the rest of the week in recycling.

    And if you're not already an Amazon Prime member, check Swagbucks for an offer related to that free trial. You may be able to earn around 300 SB for participating. That offer has been showing up on my Swagbucks homepage lately.

    Amazon is offering a 30 day free trial membership of Prime, their free shipping program. Not sure how long this offer is good for, so don't wait if you're interested!
