    nstutt - I agree. It's a toss up. On the one hand it will be easier. On the other hand, we may miss out on promos. Hopefully, once the option to enter codes manually is gone, they will have other ways to get bonus points. And I hope you had no hail damage.

    Thanks Faye, yes that hail fell south of Clayton too. But the KFR changes means that holding on products for weeks or months before submitting the codes so that you can take advantage of a special bonus like the one around Memorial Day is no more. So it is a simpler solution and does avoid the hassle of codes not being accepted which happened to me on numerous occasions resulting in a lot of 4 letter words. But taking advantage of bonus promotions and such is more difficult.

    Be careful everyone! Bad weather out there. We just had a hail storm in the 40/42 area in Johnston County!

    nstutt - according to an e-mail I got from KFR today since I added my FL MVP card to KFR yesterday, you don't have to enter codes from stores where you have loaded a reward card.

    Here is the info:

    - Remember to use this loyalty card or membership every time you shop to collect points based on your purchases of KFR-participating products.

    - Points from loyalty card or membership purchases are usually added to your account within
    2–7 days.

    - Regularly check your activity to ensure you received all the points you’ve collected via your
    connected loyalty cards or memberships, uploaded receipts and entered codes.

    - Log in to your KFR account at least once every 90 days to keep your points because they can
    expire due to inactivity. Please note that using a connected loyalty card or membership does
    not count as activity.

    Careful with that rebate that says receipt(s) must total $50. I did one of those a while back with multiple receipts and they said that it didn't qualify because it was not all in one purchase.

    I registered my HT loyalty card with Kellogg's and bought a box cereal at HT today. Do the points automatically show up in my KFR account or do I still have enter the code?
