    We traded in 95K points for $250 worth of merchandise (usually it's $170 for 95K points). We got a digital camera we have been waiting to buy, a couple of Wii games for Christmas, some butter,and tissue. We did over purchase by a $20 Wii game as we didn't take into account needing an SD...

    A couple weeks ago I was rejected to give blood due to my diastolic (this is the bottom number, right?) blood pressure being above 100 at 104. This is typical for where it has been with meds recently. Last week was my first week of exercising - MTRF morning at gym and run at track before...

    So I am trying Weight Watchers. I've done every other diet known to man, but never this one. My daughter is doing it, so she is sharing the info with me. I can't reasonably make it to meetings right now, but I bought a bathroom scale on Friday, stepped on it, and oh, it got REAL!! It's been...

    Long story involving a lot of craziness and chaos that I won't go into right now, but I could really, really use some prayers...I need peace of mind and the wisdom to know when to leave well enough alone. More later, when time has passed and I am stronger. Thanks lots...sorry I can't be more...

    I save all my Shoppers-type shopping for the days when they have 20x Points Days, and I accumulate about $25/month in points. I have used points to buy a digital camera, a digital photo frame, dvd's and boxes of chocolates (all gifts)...this is a great Christmas time strategy.

    This is a great site with all kinds of WW information. These food lists are based on one of their older programs, but it's the one I use--the one that worked for me in the past. Here is their 0 point food list: http://www.dwlz.com/WWinfo/0point.html and their 1 point food list...

    I'd like to see some recipes (or just plain "meal ideas") where people feed two people for under $4. Bonus points if you can do it in $2-$3.

    Last year we signed up for the Costco American Express credit card. I know that's a no-no for some folks... but we knew we could handle it properly. Yesterday we got our "reward" check! $125.00 !!! We paid our bill in full every month, they got NO interest from us, and now we get paid back...

    I've been saving up my points for quite a long time, but now we're not in diapers anymore! I just need a few more to get the prize I was saving for. If you don't collect them, I'd love them! They are located on the inside of the package on a little sticker. Thanks in advance!

    We buy quite a bit of our food at Sobeys, although only sale items. We joined the club points. After looking at their site www.sobeys.ca it's amazing what you can get with points. It might take me years though to get that many points. I'm wanting the pasta attachments for the KA...

    Today I got something in the mail from the bank. It was a statement of rewards points from my credit card. I had enough points to get 2-$25 gift cards to best buy and a $50 gift card to home depot. Then I check our other accounts. We have cash back bonuses on our debit cards. I had $75...

    I know he's quite a polarizing figure, but I'm really starting to like Pat Buchanan. He makes some really good points in this article. ***disclaimer ~ I am not offering this article as a reliable source of fact. Its written by Pat Buchanan, so its obviously slanted to the right. I'm merely...

Yet i'm not willing to leave joe behind either like my...

    Well, I was doing the points system for my to do's, etc. but decided that it ended up being to big of a hassle to bother with it after all. Soooo, guess I'll have to find another way to get myself motivated. :lol: Love, Jen
