    Forgot about 75 cents Savingstar rebate =38 cent moneymaker!

    FYI: I had already loaded my Food Lion card on two previous occasions with the Suddenly Salad coupons 75 cents off 3 and $1 off 2. I had 4 $1 off 2 coupons and crossed my fingers and hoped the coupon hub would give me the $1 off 2. It gave me both! I bought 10 for 37 cents total including tax! Whoo whoo! (This is part of the buy 5 get $2 off).

    Faye, thanks for the help with the water. It looks like HT has their store brand spring water BOGO for $2.19, so I might just get that.

    Thanks for the SB event reminder. I'm on delicious dogs. Not too ironic as my not so delicious pup is literally screaming for me from the other room as I try to type this. :p

    ASCHERER -- Yep, I'm a Slider this time. I really shouldn't complain, since I was on the 2nd place team last time. But it's a running joke that more often than not I end up on the last-place team.

    Dr D - I just forget about them because I don't see them on the home page. But I did get taken because they expired on June 30th (Swag Bark). I just order a $25 card on July 6th. I'm not going to worry about it this month. I will get another $25 car right after this team challenge and should have enough by Aug 1st to get another $25 using the discount/bonus/whatever it is called. I do appreciate your tips.

    ASCHERER, I've often noticed that the SwagUps expiration date in the My SwagUps page is earlier than the promotional material for the team challenge indicates. So I've started copying the promo info, and last month I asked SB which expiration date was correct. They replied that it should be the later date, as stated in the promotional materials. But when I purchased my next gift card on July 1st, my SwagUp was not applied, because it actually did expire on the earlier date of 6/30. When I submitted a ticket about this, they credited my account.

    Here's the wording about the expiration date from the promotional text for last month's SwagBark Team Challenge:

    "Your SB Swag Up Rebate will be made available on Monday, June 20th and will expire on Wednesday, July 20th."

    SEnglish - Let me guess - you are on team Savory Sliders. I am and I am always on the last place team. This time I am going to redeem my Swag Ups as soon as I get them. I always forget about them and let them expire.

    Got it. Thanks Kathy S

    And I just earned an 11CB for entering summer earnings in the SB search box.

    senglish27529 - I am guessing there will be another Wed extravaganza since that is the pattern. Maybe you will luck out and it will be on Thursday. :-) At least we all will get at least 20 SB for the team challenge.
