    ThomasG - I have not heard of the magazine you mentioned so no feedback there. As far as using rain checks at the same chain but a different location, the only store that has refused a rain check from the same chain but another store location was Lowes Foods. I got a rain check at a Cary Lowes Foods when they were out of something and the 40/42 Lowes Foods would not honor it. Other than that, I have used rain checks from one HT at a different HT, etc with no problems. I think others answered already that you can't use rain checks at a different chain (like an HT rain check at Food Lion).

    losltp - it will be interesting to see what happens with Belk now that they have been sold.

    jdouglas 13- GOOD to see you too !
    I hope your house of lovely ladies is well and happy !!
    I thought that was the case on the rain checks but I asked because a friend recently moved , doesn't have a certain store in the new location but has a ton of rain checks !
    I suggested they could come for a visit and use the rain checks ! lol

    CTYA~DH is on a tuna and yogurt binge (not at the same time ewwww) so he will be happy to know that I opted for the $50 in product q's too. Thanks so much

    Good to see you ThomasG!! I knew you would enjoy that IHOP deal.

    LOSLTP - Yeah, I was concerned about multiple things with this rain check. She didn't sign it. Just wrote out his name on the line for Store Manager. It was 8:45 on a Sunday night.

    THOMASG - I have asked the same question before about rain checks. I now know you can not use one stores rain check (like Kroger or Food Lion) at another store (like HT or Food Lion). I'm not sure if you can use a rain check at the same store chain but in a different location.

    ThomasG! It's nice to see you!

    Rainchecks are only good for the store that issues them. That is Kroger RC @ Kroger, HT RC at HT. However, if you go to a HT in Cary, you can use it at any HT -- Apex, Raleigh, Clayton, wherever. I have quite an assortment of RCs and use them at different locations from where they were issued.

    CTYA - thank you SOOOOOOOO much for the info on the tuna!! You made my day :) I opted for $50 in tuna as well. We'll be well stocked!

    I started getting my rebate checks too- I am planning on stacking them all so I can invest in a freezer-a small stand up one I saw in Best Buy and I just found a 10% coupon- YAY!!!!!

    I am a little sad to see the news about Belk - I bought my "wedding dress" there .
    It was tea-length cream/off white -I thought I was too old at 25 for a traditional wedding gown- (many of my classmates were on second or third marriages by then )
