    Dr D - that is very interesting. I had not heard of them being linked in that way before. I'll have to e-mail my CO51 contact to see what she says. Thanks for posting!

    A couple of weeks ago I saw when I logged into Checkout51 that 3 offers for Kellogg's kids cereals were marked as "Claimed Limit". I e-mailed them to ask about this, thinking it must be an error, since I had not purchased any of those cereals, much less filed a rebate claim for them. Their reply said "Some brands have offers (like this one!) that are available across multiple mobile savings apps. Unfortunately, these kinds of offers may run out whenever their campaign limit, or their offer redemption limit per member, is reached. At this time, this offer is no longer available for you to redeem."

    Today I noticed in my CO51 account that my 3 Snyder's and Lance offers were also marked as "Claimed Limit", even though I haven't purchased any Snyder's recently. However, I did activate those same 3 offers in my SavingStar account. So Checkout51 and SavingStar are linked, possibly? I haven't purchased nor claimed these items in either account - only activated in SavingStar.
