So I would also have to add that I am thankful for YOU!

tinkizz410 said...

continue to be as goofy, and fun loving as you are! I realize that you doing this for everyone not just yourself takes time away from YOUR family, and thank you.
also, I'm hoping this works because I did try to enter your contest yesterday repeatedly but for some reason it did not like me. Best of luck to Everyone, and in the spirit of Christmas, may we all continue to have giving hearts.

This is going to be fun! I'd love to win, but I know people here are good shoppers. That means Toys for Tots will receive a huge donation of "good" toys and that money will be spent wisely.

kelly said...

im sorry this comment isnt applicable with the post, but I was hoping someone might be able to answer me before I go to Walgreens this evening...
I know if you have a RR from Huggies, and use it to buy more Huggies you wont get another RR....but I can still get the 5RR if I spend more than $25 right? Im just wanting to make sure by using a same RR it doesnt cancel out any new RR i should be getting? I feel like that doesnt make very much sense, but hopefully someone will get what im trying to say!!
thanks in advance, and thanks Collin for your site, its amazing!!!

Susan said...

Just wanted to say that I just received my AE purchase from the other day and they included 10.00 gc in my order! How sweet is that?

I wouldnt' have ordered if it weren't for the free shipping and 15% off...so I spent 20.00 for 2 great tops and I got a 10.00 gc with my order..

Hope others got the same :D


Thank you for all of your word!!

Destiny said...

Excited about this giveaway.. it does remind me about the true meaning of Christmas.. and how a baby was born,Jesus!! It's not about all the gift and stuff.. but also giving. I think it's neat that you want to do a giveaway and we can use the money to donate to kids who might not have much or anything! Thanks for all you do! It really has helped us out a lot this year.. saving! I always thought it was a hassle and didnt' like people who used coupons esp. when they were in front of me but now I'm that lady! :) Thank you so much for all your hard work! You rock Collin!

Dana said...

Kelly-
I am a little confused by your question but I am going to try to answer it. Hope this helps. You are right you cannot use a Huggies for a Huggies and get another RR. But if you have a $5 huggies you can use that towards your $25 purchase and will still get that $5 RR. But you cannot use THAT RR to get another RR for the $25 purchase RR. Hope that helps.

thanks for answering dana...I think I understand...but one thing im still wondering about. If my first transaction is over 25 and I get a 5RR, can I use that 5RR in my second $25 transaction and get another 5 RR?

Merry Christmas and Thank You Collin! Pat yourself on the back as you have helped many people have a better holiday this year - and many to have one that wouldn't have otherwise! Big Hugs!
