    Can they ever be frugal? I'm contemplating using one for several reasons. 1) my wardrobe needs a serious overhaul and I have no idea where to begin...well I do. It's called throw everything out and start over. Nothing fits. 2) DH takes the car to work every day and it makes it really hard...

    Has anyone else noticed the difference this year? It seems that everywhere I've gone lately people have been so cranky, impatient and rude. I'm not just talking about Christmas shopping.

    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.
