    Faye, Thank you for all your help. I can't find the coupon for the OxiClean laudry detergent $2. I had one in my book and used it but want to download more. Do you know where they are?

    Dr D - Thanks for the heads up on your KFR experience. I decided to wait to load my HT card on until I could not enter codes manually anymore since I was expecting this kind of thing would happen. I loaded Food Lion already to get the 100 bonus points, but I don't shop there very much so I won't have many KFR codes from there. I am manually entering the codes from packages as long as I can since the points are awarded right away and it takes very little time. I think in the long run, it will be probably be easier to do it the new way with linked reward cards, since some of the codes were unreadable, but the HT receipt from yesterday was very light and the camera would have had a hard time getting a good photo so uploading the receipt would have been frustrating. Entering the Morningstar Farms codes manually was much easier than fighting to get a picture that would have been accepted, I think.

    I had a little go'round with the KFR site, but in the end I contacted them and they fixed it promptly. I uploaded two receipts identifying KFR product purchases, and then linked some store loyalty cards. I got an e-mail saying they were not able to process the receipts because they were uploaded together rather than separately. My mistake: I had used the "Add Another" button, which I now know is for multiple sections of the same receipt, rather than multiple receipts. I uploaded the receipts again, separately this time. I got an e-mail saying they were not able to process the receipts because they were from a store linked with a loyalty card. So I unlinked that card and uploaded the receipts a third time. I got an e-mail saying they were unable to process the receipts because they were duplicates and points had already been awarded. But no points had been awarded. So I contacted them, they politely awarded the points, and reminded me to re-link that store loyalty card. Go KFR!

    swbjfb - That was really nice of you to say. :-) And thank YOU for reading and posting on the blog! If it has been more than 22 days, make sure you submit the info to Savingstar through their website so they can figure out what happened.

    Thank you Faye, seems like it has been longer than 22 days. Want to thank you for your great SD's list. You do an excellent for all of us that coupon, could never do it without you.

    swbjfb - usually 14 to 22 days. HT is the slowest to process Savingstar rebates.

  • swbjfb Jun 25, 2015

    How long does it take your coupons redeemed at HT to show up on SavingStar? The coupons I use at CVS are processed that week.

    abbysmom07 and TrixRidesAgain - thanks for posting! I just posted about the Coors rebate in a separate post and I will include your posts as well in the comments section.
