    At the beach you have to wait for a person to approach you to pay for the fee $4, to rent a lounge chair. I had my money ready twice, but no person ever showed up. Free lounge chairs for 2 days we were at the beach. I even went to a nearby drink stand to ask, but the guy would not take the money. He told me someone would show up, but that did not happen. We have one more day in Croatia and head back to the good old USA on Monday.

    There's only one thing better than going on a fabulous vacation; going home.

    I loathe apps, but, modern things take the lead. I had a GC of $35.XX for Starbucks and you know, you have to "flash" your smartphone to pay for stuff anymore. About 3 weeks ago, I awoke from a nap, picked up my phone to check messages, and I saw a flash of, "you have successfully transferred your balance of $35.XX to..." and that is all I saw. Then, it said, "if you did not initiate this transaction, email or call...". So, I emailed. Waited a few days, didn't receive an answer. Called. Explained. Was told it would be investigated and I'd be advised. Time ticks. I emailed again today. Got a call. It seems it was transferred to an unregistered card that I had a long time ago. Better still, that unregistered card had $80.XX on it! So, I now have $115.XX in Starbucks money for their swill.

    At k mart, I used surprise points to get a 6 pack of ladies no show socks for .85 cents. More surprise points get me 2 towels for $3 plus tax. I just earned another 9, 000 surprise points and will pick up 2 more towels today. The twins will use them for college and they leave in a month.

    Yesterday, I stopped by CVS and used a $5/25, plus $13 in ecr to buy 15 food items for $11.40. I got back .50 cents in ecr and .70 in online Ibotta rebates. The $11.40 included 2 24 pks of water plus bottle, deposit, 4 boxes of cereal, a big bag of chips, 4 boxes of snack bars, a loaf of bread and a pack of gum. One box of cereal was free with sale price and 2 coupons.
    Crankie also visited SAm's club for drinks for the party in 2 weeks. I submitted some online rebates. From Ibotta, I received $10.25, that included 3 rebates, plus a bonus. I am waiting to see if the BevRage app works for me and should earn another $3. The last one did not work for Checkout 51 since there were no chips on my receipt!
    This morning, I plan to cash in my bottles and cans and get one of my Sunday papers for free.

    Forgot to post that 2 boxes of Whole FRuit bars were $1.48 after double coupons, sale and bottle deposit receipt. I should get $1 back from SAvingSTAr if I remembered to scan my store card. Not sure I did. :confused:

    CVS: Had $4 ECR in hand, got my coupons at the kiosk, $5 ECR spit out + other coupons. Not ready to do a shop there today, but, after looking in the newspapers for coupons, bought (2) papers with the $4 ECR and paid .24 tax.

    Apple sent me an email that if a college student ordered an Apple computer, they would include Beats headphones for free. These headphones are a $299 value and D1 and D 2 used their savings to purchase themselves each an Apple computer. I hope they enjoy their new headphones as well.
