    Just got an email from Sabra with a link to a $1 off any product coupon (10 oz or larger). I think that makes the hummus on sale at Lowes $1.25. Yay!

    Vlynn, just a quick fyi that hip2save has a coupon deal for compatible toners with a company called Combo Ink if you want to try a compatible one. You might have to go to the 2nd or 3rd page to find the deal.

    Thanks for the SAVE A LOT info ThomasG. Now that I have one fairly close I shop there when I cant get to HT so I will stay away from the veggies!! I MIGHT even have a bag in the freezer right now form an old shopping trip! Scary

    Dr. D re security software: Depending on your internet provider, you may have free security software included with your internet service. Att offers mcafee free and I think time warner does, too. I think centurylink offers norton free.

    Thanks for the info on the corn recall, Raesmom & ThomasG. Great deal on the jacket from Nordstroms, RFB! Ebates often has a good percentage back on Nordstroms when they have their summer sale.

    Jjganny, great deal on the totes! Love those things for storage, organizing, etc.

    Dr D, I've been having a little problem lately on SB on my phone when I'm watching videos. Every now and then it seems to get overwhelmed and I need to restart it. Works ok after that. I think the phone acts up when an app automatically updates itself if I'm in the middle of a SB video.

    DrD, The following was a response that one of the Swagbucks member received because of problems with nCrave: "Regarding your nCrave issue, we understand that some members have had limited or no access to engage in video viewing on Swagbucks or nCrave sites in recent days. This is due to our use of an industry-standard third-party traffic verification service, which apparently may be having some issues with their systems incorrectly blocking certain users from this activity.
    Please be assured that we would like to resolve this issue ASAP and are reaching out to the traffic verification service to see if anything can be done to alleviate this problem for the affected members. As we make progress on this issue, we will try to keep you informed, and apologize for any inconvenience some members may be experiencing from this technical issue in the meantime." I don't know if this is why you are having problems but thought I'd pass along.
