    Faye, I was getting ready to send you an email about the swag-up and decided to look one more time and it is there now. Thank you for looking out for us.

    Observant & Faye - My SwagUps didn't show until I redeemed SwagBucks for a gift card. Then they appeared and credited at the same time.

    Coupon4Me - I am the one that had an issue. You have to kind of play with it to use the beer rebate cards. I final got to use 2 of mine. I explained the situation to my waitress. She ran one card for the full $25 and then ran the second card for the remaining balance because the tab was $42 and it worked. Does that make sense?

    moo - sounds like you got some fabulous deals! Thanks for sharing the info.

    Nanee Lion - Really not seeing good buys on supplies anymore. Have you tried Dollar Tree? They would be $1 if they have them/

    My swagup is not posted in my ledger either .
    I have heard that others have received the "Swag Up " when they redeemed their swagbucks for a gift card.

    OK I know I am late with this request but does anyone know where I can get markers? Just had an idea for the elderly on my ladies group Christmas list. Thought I could get the ladies a adult coloring books and markers. If anyone seems a deal on these, please post. We have a budget on how much we can spend. Thanks

    beths - I did not! I'll send my contact an e-mail now to ask about it. Thanks for the heads up.

    I saw that Ascherer received her swag-up yesterday from the Midway team challenge. Mine still hasn't shown up. Did you get yours, Faye?

    We were in Wake Forest Friday and heard about the pipeline problem on the radio .
    I noticed gas was $1.99 on the way to Wake Forest but had jumped to $2.25 in a couple of hours .
    We filled up at the cheapest station we found ( $2.09 ).
    DH 's trips to work are 50 miles round trip but car gets good mileage ( 36 to 38 ).
