class action and bankruptcy administrator company. so their data includes paypal/venmo type info/accounts which is what @ctujackbauer is warning about, that the hackers could try to scam people who have received payouts from Kroll in the past when they processed class action payment awards.
I have been experiencing the same issues. I just sent a response here to your initial email about this issue and it’s pending approval I think. It is very weird and I’ve been trying to figure it out with no luck so far.
Good luck. Let us know if you get anywhere with Amazon customer service.
My biggest gripe is the devaluation of the rewards. I still use it, but pass up many offers that just aren’t worth it anymore.
Remember, you can scan receipts from restaurants, liquor stores, gas, grocery,drug, home depot, etc. they all count. It’s not just grocery receipts that get the base credit, my system works well when you need ‘any’ receipt to scan for the daily bonus spin.
Yeah I know. We just don’t buy that much stuff. We do a lot of online shopping and I have Amazon linked to Fetch.
@mistercheap yeah this was confusing to me as well; i do know the existing/previous policy was like a total expiration of all points, a year from the last time you made any purchase, and the faqs made that clear in the provided example. not sure why they couldn’t answer the most obvious potentially-confusing part along with this change, but…hopefully they’ll clarify and update the page soon
@mrvietnam More caffeine than coffee usually has or are you talking about the caffeinated fruit beverages? I get the agave lemonade (no added caffeine) and the decaf coffee. I pour hot decaf into a paper cup then fill a large plastic cup with ice. After the decaf has cooled a bit I pour it over the ice to make iced decaf. I re-use both the paper and the plastic cups multiple times. The paper eventually starts to leak and reheating in the microwave melts the glue making them wear out faster. I carry clean empty cups & lids in my car.
I am talking about the fruit drinks, charged lemonades in particular. One glass has over twice the sugar you should consume in a day, too:
I’ve never messed with any of those. I’ve strictly gotten iced coffee, iced tea, Diet Pepsi or hot coffee and added artifical sweetner and creamer when needed. When I was in FL recently, they were all over the place, was in there as much as 3x a day getting my free drink. Up here there’s just one not that convenient for me, so maybe I’m in there 1x a week or 1x every other.
If I lived in FL, the $99 yearly plan is worth it, assuming a conservative 20visits a month x 12 =240 is .40 a LARGE drink. Far better than Dunkin prices even with app offers except the rare ones that are totally free.
Big Lots said Thursday that it’s “assisting shoppers nationwide” by accepting expired Bed Bath & Beyond coupons until May 7. Customers that bring one of the iconic blue-and-whites into one of its 1,425 stores will receive 20% off a purchase of $50 or more. The offer is only valid in stores.
Big Lots is closing stores. I wouldn’t be surprised if they follow BB&B.
they sent me an offer to earn $10 if I get food 2x between now and 3/31 on top of the Cashback. Easy to do
I got that too but not really easy for me as we rarely eat out. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth to go out when we otherwise wouldn’t just to get the deal. There are a couple breweries in the app so if I go get 2 beers twice, that would be around $24. I’d get around $5 back because they are always ~25% back and then I’d get $10 back. So 4 beers for around $10 is a pretty good deal.
a couple are semi fast food, like sub shops, can go in and buy a drink as long as there’s no credit card minimum probably make $5. If i had to get subs, get two $10 orders, rung up seperately, pay $10 net. I’ll have to see how and if I end up using the offer.
So I mentioned my brewery plan to my SO and then she started looking at the list and of course she wanted to come and picked a pricy pizza place. So instead of getting 4 beers for around $10, we ended up getting more drinks and pizza and salad, but after the Upside deals (18% off both and $5 and $10 off), Dosh, SB and T-Mobile Dining deal (5% off and $10 off $25), if my calculations are correct and they all come through, we should get about $40 back off $90 in food and drinks. Not as good of a deal, but not too bad for spending an evening out with my SO and we have leftover pizza for another meal each.
@mistercheap Of course they did. I’ve been debating getting one here in Kentucky but they are expensive. Kentucky is one of those states that got exemption after exemption. Now I can delay until my actual license is set to expire.
Here is an interesting data point. I had a $6 back wys $22 and a $7 back wys $25 along with the $10 back wys $10, and I wondered how much Wags cash I would get back if I made a $25+ purchase. I bought a bunch of Hallmark greeting cards to test it out. I bought $25.49 worth to see if I could triple dip on offers and the answer Is “No,” - However it did allow me to double dip. The $10 Wags cash for spending $10 got credited along with the $6 Wags cash for spending $22, but for some reason the $7 Wags cash for spending $25 did not credit even thought I spent $25.49 before tax.
@MrVietnam I wonder if you had not clipped the $6/22 if the $7/25 would have credited? You paid the $25.49 pre tax fully out of pocket? no wags cash used?
Yes, I paid the entire $25.49 subtotal OOP ($27.xx after dales tax) via true Wags gift cards and a prepaid MasterCard. No Wags Cash used.
Wags gift cards that were purchased or from returns?
That was an extremely poor and loaded article. Anyone who shops Kohl’s knows the pricing schemes. 50% off is normal and they always have a large clearance sales this time of year. No one should ever pay the full sticker price at Kohl’s except for the brands that never go on sale anywhere. Yeah they are having issues with inventory like every other retailer. The writer seems to hate Kohl’s and wrote a story to back it up. I like them, but I’m not spending money on extras when food and gas is so high, like most other Americans.
My biggest regret was being stuck with over $700 in gift cards after souplantation closed permanently during the pandemic. Try to see as many movies at regal. AMC seems to be surviving for now thanks to stock speculators…
And I thought I had it bad with my $400 at Souplantation.
