    I was thinking the same thing jdouglas!

    I saw a deal on hip2save today where you get $10 back from swagbucks when you buy 2 boxes of Hefty trash bags at Walmart

I donated during the 1:00 hour and I won a gift certificate for the embassy suites in brier creek!!! This hours giveaway is a gift certificate for a stay at the Hilton garden inn!! Hurry over and donate!!! If you win its a win win :) check Faye's link for the schedule to see what giveaways they have going on at what time.

    I was wondering if anyone else had this problem, I can't print q's from the smartshopper link. It just says it's sending it to my computer and locks up there. I can go to redplum and smartsource and print q's from there. Is this a problem with my computer or the link? Thanks for the help!

    Mothar, I used to go to a really good Italian restaurant in/near Wareham when we moved back East the first time about 15 years ago or so. I hear you about having that bus routine down pat. I take the Plymouth Brockton and can pretty much quote the schedule. LOL. Who knows, we may have even been on the same flight at one point or another, and sitting at the same bus stop waiting for our respective buses. :)

    Whoops, forgot to mention I signed up for expedia rewards too, and it seems to be slow going but will eventually get a free flight there.

    Wow thanks for the JetBlue /swagbucks deal !!
    We are thinking of a trip to the west coast soon .
    I think I saw travelocity at swagbucks as well !!
    I always search for companies via swagbucks search - I can maybe earn SBs searching and the search will show if they are Swagbucks earner "stores" !

    I have lived both sides of the credit card /no credit card life .
    My kids grew up and finished college without huge loans afterwards - scholarships/grants /work study and jobs paid the way .
    Did you know claims on your insurance can affect you credit score ??
    as can too many inquiries for your credit report ?
    But many things are near impossible without a credit card
    NO online shopping without some sort of card ( debit/credit/or gift card ) !
    Rental cars - almost impossible if you have no credit card even some "loan a tool" programs require you to have one or leave your first born until you return the tools (LOL) I got a new credit card less than 2 years ago - it earns rewards and is paid off every month . It actually helps me keep track of spending and reduce frivolous purchases ( such as a cup of bad coffee when I am only 20 minutes from home) ALSO-credit cards have better theft/id protection than debit cards .

    Hi jdouglas, they are in Wareham, just before Cape, and I take the Peter Pan bus to get there, got the routine down pat, lol...

  • jdouglas13 Sep 11, 2015

    Thanks Mothar :) Are your parents near Boston or on the Cape?

    RFB, moving is crazy expensive. I shudder to think how much I've spent on moving over the years. Ouch.

    Yes, swagbucks through expedia Jdouglas! Glad you found a great tire deal the other day too! Thanks for the good thoughts, same to you.
    Twinredheads, that is so awesome on paying off your house.
