I hope that T-Mobile jumps on this bandwagon, too…it would be so nice to be free of all the nearly-daily offers for extended auto warranties, credit card consolidation, and exciting timeshare opportunities, so that I can dedicate my phone line to more important calls, such as urgent calls from the IRS Investigation Department that give me a heads-up on how soon I’m going to be arrested for the outstanding litigation events that are pending against me…
…and, of course, calls from Mom and Dad…
T-Mobile does have ‘likely scam’ on the caller ID, get that a good amount.
Which trick? Please be specific, there are dozens in this thread. Each of them also has a direct link, so you can check if they work for yourself. If any link(s) isn’t working, please let me know and I will update it.
Eddie Lampert's $4.4 billion offer was Sears' only shot at staying alive and preserving 55,000 jobs. But the bid ultimately came up short.
Court allows Chairman Eddie Lampert another chance to buy Sears, pushing off decision to shut stores
Eddie Lampert’s $4.4 billion offer was the only bid that could keep the company going in its entirety.
Sears, which also owns Kmart, filed for bankruptcy in October.
ESL plans to contest Sears’ decision, pointing to the money its spent on advisors.
99% of the coupons Catalina spits out at me at the register are useless to me… a colossal waste of paper and ink. I always wish they’d give me coupons on things I’ve actually bought instead of trying to guess or to get me to buy tangentially/completely unrelated stuff I’d never buy. Just today I left 2 such “useless” coupons at the self checkout in case anyone else was interested in them.
I’ve never even heard of Mambo Sprouts but it sounds like something I would have enjoyed using their service. Too bad.
I found an article from mid-October announcing the closure of the Ridgedale and Rice Street stores, so, it looks like just the Sears appliance store and small Hometown Stores on the extreme outskirts of the Twin Cities metro area will be left for @mom2jel to shop at…for the moment…
I can’t even begin to imagine what $$$$$ rents the MOA commands, @my4mainecoons; however, with over a million shoppers crossing its threshold every year, I can well imagine that there are a lot of major stores salivating at the prospect of taking over the prime real estate now occupied by Sears…
Re: [USPS Postage Rates Going up Jan 27](2019. Buy Forever Stamps to save 10% Later)
Counterfeit stamps on eBay? I heard of postal employees selling stamps stolen for their jobs. I heard that there is UV ink on real stamps to thwart counterfeits, but any evidence you can provide about eBay stamp selling counterfeiters would be appreciated.
Please do not create a new thread to reply to an existing thread/topic. I suggest that you copy your OP above as a reply to the USPS Postage Rates thread now, if that is what you intended to do.
FYI: Do not click the “new” button to reply to threads. Instead, open the thread you want to reply to and either a) click the “reply” link in small blue letters directly underneath a specific post/person you want to reply to, or b) click the huge blue “reply” button at the top or bottom of the page to post a general reply in the thread that isn’t directed to anyone in particular. The “new” button is only for creating brand new thread about a deal that has not already been posted (and makes you the original poster/OP or first poster for a thread).
Let me know if you have any questions or need any help with the above. TIA.
@mistercheap As long as they still send out the birthday coupons… though those seemed to have stopped. Is that in there somewhere?
Didn’t see mention of it, the free drink Q at 200 points remains the same.
No, I mean the birthday coupon. They seem to have stopped coming. As well as the ones for when you sign up for an account. Used to come via email, now you have to actually log into the account.
@dangeRuss yes I know what you meant, I said I didn’t see reference to it (that it was d/c’ed). then there was a comma, discussing the free from points earned beverage. Gotta brush up on your punctuation!
Amazon Prime or in-store pickup works for us. We use Amazon Prime for TV anyway since the only station we can pick up with our outside antenna is the local PBS station. Between what’s available for free with Amazon Prime and using the $1 digital credits earned with choosing the slowest delivery time on Amazon to buy or rent a series or movie now and then, we manage to find enough to watch. Most of the other places we shop, like Lowes, have in-store pickup. I agree that prices are going to rise, though, so it’s more important than ever that we share genuine good deals whenever we find them.
The problem with increased prices is that you pay more even if you opt for in store pickup… and you spend your gas money and time on top of that. I suspect some retailers will both raise prices AND raise the minimum spend requirements for free shipping, so they’ll get you either way, but maybe I’m being too pessimistic.
Also, you pay a shipping premium already with your prime membership. Yes, you reduce it by your high use of their digital media and not paying for traditional cable (and maybe high volume purchases?), but Prime membership is still a cost and one that keeps rising and rising by large percentages at a rate a lot higher than inflation. You’d have to use the $1 digital credit A LOT to make up the difference. Also, some like me often can’t opt for the $1 digital credit because we’re only offered other slow shipping offers that are “useless” to our needs (like credits for prime pantry, prime now, or the toy department).
We’re similar in that I do the things you do, just less frequently. However, I am concerned that no matter how often you do them they will no longer be enough to offset the coming price increases. So I definitely agree that we need to step up our sharing of high quality deals!
