    beths - thanks!

    GranOFTwenty - are you supposed to get a text back from all of the companies? You can try joining again or joining on their websites and giving them your phone number for texts online instead of via phone. I have never used a tracfone so I am not sure what the issue is.

    A good test to see if you are doing it right is to join the Redbox deals by text. Go to and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Enter your phone number in the Get The Text sign up box and then you should get a text immediately to confirm that you want to get texts from them. They always respond to texts so that should show you if you are doing it right. Hope that helps.

    Thanks Nanee Lion!

    HELP !
    I finally got a smartphone - it is a tracfone and so far I LOVE it . I do have one problem - gettings texts from places . For example I signed up for STAPLES the other day - I I followed the instructions to text "SIGNUP" to a special number .
    I got the "IT SENT " message but never got a message back form STAPLES that it had been received and I was signed up .
    I have done this with several places and only one store has come back thru to me with a text . ( I did install the apps as well )
    What do I DO wrong ??
    THANKS for any help teaching this old dog new tricks!

    Jdouglas- I'll have to look for that one! I haven't tried their Foxpoint... but might give them another try. They've been sending out some really questionable (in my mind) e-mails lately, so I've pretty much given up on them. Very strange stuff...

    Rite Aid in Clayton has 75% off decorations, birthday, baby shower, streamers etc. making a good price if anyone can use them. Not something I can use but though you guys could with your little ones.

    We are signed up for emails from Penzey's Spices (Cameron Village). They sent us an email for a free 1/2 cup bottle of their Foxpoint seasoning or a choice of 3 others. I'm pretty excited about that because the price for that is usually $10. Obviously, I haven't bought any in a LONG time. They send out about half a dozen emails a year with offers for free spices, so it's worth signing up.
