    vlynn - in the past, the only difference for a WM card is that I print it out vs loading the Amazon gc # to my account. I would definitely ask them about it. Let me know what they say.

    ThomasG - thanks for letting us know the WM card was processed as it normally is for you.

    VLYNN- I redeemed for a Walmart card this week with the normal verification email . Good Luck finding the reason your verification was different than normal ....

    Faye, I redeemed it for a walmart card when in the past I've always gotten amazon ones. Wonder if there is a difference between the cards chosen? I'm going to contact swagbucks on Monday to ask about it.

    ascherer - I don't recall seeing cream cheese in the ads this week, but Aldi has a very good every day price usually. I suggest checking there. And how nice of you to feed all the ladies. And 150 oz of cream cheese is about 19 bars. That's a lot of cream cheese! lol

    VLYNN - I just redeemed SB for a gift card. It did the normal and verified using email. I wonder why yours was different.

    Faye - Where is the best place to buy Philadelphia cream cheese? I only need about 150 oz of it for an event in a week where I am feeding 50 Ladies bagels.

    aneal426 - I did an internet search and the WRAL story that was posted is the same one from national news sources about the Pope opening the free laundry facility in Rome. It's not available to read anymore but I was able to see the first few lines in a description and it is the same story run on national channels.

    I cannot find mention of a free laundry place for homeless here in Raleigh other than the shelters like the Durham Rescue Mission. I suggest contacting 680 AM directly since they ran the story you heard. You can also contact the homeless shelters about volunteer opportunities. I'm sure they would love your help! That's such a nice thing you are doing! Good luck and let us know if you find a good volunteer opportunity to share.

    Hey Faye,
    I'm not sure if you can help me with this but I heard the tail end of a story on radio 680 AM about a free laundry mat for the homeless. They talked about filling it with other things and needing to be run by volunteers. I was interested in seeing if I could help out. I looked it up on google and it lead me to a unknown link on wral ( Could you help me out? Other google sites say it was opened in Rome but I remember the radio saying something about Raleigh. I know this isn't deal related but I thought you may be able to find out something from someone at wral about it. Thanks!

    bjluckeey - heard that rumor yesterday and am waiting to hear back from my corporate contact. Thanks for the info!! The official ribbon cutting and gift card giveaway is still next Thursday, though.
