    I bought the 4 pack of corn yesterday at Aldi and grilled it today for dinner. It seemed plump and fresh but tasted sour. Has anyone else had this experience.

    Thank You Faye !
    We don't shop at Exxon much ( BP and Kroger have been our main gasoline stations- thanks to rewards and fuel points ) nor can I remember the last time I was in a Rite Aid but it may be worth considering
    Is there a chance I can use it at AT&T for my Directv payment since they just bought DirecTv ??

    Sounds like Plenti would be an easy way to earn points esp. with the amount of gas being used in my family.

    still can't print from smartsource, so no butter for me. It is constanly asking me to update JAVA and I don't know much about doing that. Must make time to call about that but it takes hours when you call the geek squad. Good deal for you jdouglass13

    I bought the Challenge butter that's on sale at HT yesterday $3 each. It turns out that there's a Catalina where if you buy 2, you get a coupon for $1 off your next order. I bought 4 lbs, used a $0.75 coupon on each that doubled, minus the 2 $1 Catalinas, and it netted out to $1 pound (I think) :p. Good deal for butter, especially such a good brand!

    I've been really enjoying fresh market lately! Today they had asparagus $2.99/lb. and BOGO blueberries. Also, I love their pizza/wings deal for $9.99. I think their pizzas are far better than the frozen ones, and my DH can never get enough wings.

    Regarding Plenti - you only have to have one Plenti card. Use that whenever you shop at any Plenti partners including Rite Aid, Macy's and Exxon and more. When you want to redeem points, use the card and ask to redeem your Plenti points.

    So points you earn at Exxon can be redeemed for $ off at Rite Aid, for example.

    If you shop at any of the partner stores (Rite Aid, Exxon, Macy's, At&T, etc) it is worth it to sign up and earn and redeem points across the multiple stores.

    You can link Lowes Foods, BJ's and Food Lion cards to your Plenti acct. and if you buy the specific products (listed on the Plenti website), you can earn additional Plenti points. You need to show your Plenti card at checkout, according to the Plenti website. Those points can only be spent at the partner stores (not at Lowes Foods, Food Lion and BJ's). Points are not given when you checkout at the store & may take up to 30 days to post to your account.

    ASHERER - can you use the PLENTI card to get discounts at all places you earn the rewards or are the discounts only at RITE AIDE ? A cashier at an Exxon gave us one when we stopped to "stretch our legs" and get some "road munchies" - it is the only time we have used iy so far.

    I use Rite Aid for scripts. So, I am a Plenti "member". You have to earn 200 points to get $2 off at Rite Aid. I see a lot about how to earn the points but not much on how to redeem them. I am not happy with the program but I may be missing some of the info.

    Has anyone signed up for a Plenti card? I see this at Exxon for gas purchases, and at Macy's but am not sure I need one more card that promises big rewards....it's also tied into Rite Aid and you can link it to your Food Lion and Lowe's food cards so receive points when you purchase certain food items. Would love to hear from someone who is familiar with the card....
