Join Amazon Mom For Perks

Are you accumulating a lot of Swagbucks Amazon gift cards? If you're going to order from Amazon, then you want to become become an Amazon Mom (open to anyone, not just moms). It gives you a free 3 months of Amazon Prime, which means 3 months of free 2-day shipping.
You get these perks:

* Free 2-Day shipping with Amazon Prime Benefits for the first 3 months

* 30% off diapers and wipes with subscribe & save delivery

* Exclusive e-mail discounts and offers.

Read all about it here: Amazon Mom
You can earn additional months of free 2-day shipping by spending $25 in a single order in the Baby Store. The "Subscribe & Save" delivery can be cancelled at any time.

Who is this program for, and do I qualify?
• Amazon Mom is a free membership program aimed at helping parents and caregivers, from the prenatal days through the toddler years, use Amazon to find all the products their family needs. To join, simply sign into your Amazon account and tell us whether you are a Mom, Dad, or other caregiver of a child. By providing some optional information about your family, you can help us personalize offers, e-mails, and product recommendations to help you find exactly what you need at just the right time.
I am a Dad (or Grandma, or Aunt) - am I eligible?

• Yes. Despite the name, Amazon Mom is open to anyone who is responsible for caring for a baby or young child--“Amazon Primary Caregiver” just didn’t have the same ring to it. Kidding aside, we chose this name because we noticed moms in social communities (like our Amazon discussion boards) looking to connect and share information about products and problems with other moms. We wanted a name that would let these groups know that this program was created with their unique needs in mind.

Target Register Problems -- Sign the Petition

As the discussion on Chat has pointed out, Target has a big problem right now with the way their registers are programmed. If you have a $1/2 coupon and buy two .65 items with that coupon, the register only
deducts .65, not $1. This started when they tried to fix a different problem of overage. Basically the computer cannot give you over the cost of the item, but instead of recognizing you bought two items, it takes the easy road and gives you the price of one item even if it's less than the coupon allows. Because Target receipts are tricky to read, most people don't notice. You can sign a petition on line here to get Target's attention. It's hard to believe that with negative TV publicity Target didn't jump right on this, but as far as I know, it's still not fixed. Be sure to add a comment to the petition. That's what Target
will read.

Original article: Do you watch your receipt carefully at Target?
You will after reading this article.
Target has been accused of not giving full value for coupons. For example, Target deducted $1.99 for a $4 coupon. There is definitely something funny going on in their computer system. Quote: 'Target spokesperson
Jenn Glass said, "We are working on a fix. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our guests. They can certainly return to a store with receipts if they didn't receive the complete coupon amount."'

But no promise about when it would be fixed permanently.

More About Bricks Coupons

Yesterday I talked for just a moment about bricks coupons. A typical bricks coupons looks like the picture above, right before you hit the "Print Coupons" button. You’ll notice that you don’t see an actual coupon. If you’ve never printed a bricks coupon, you will be prompted to install the Coupon Printer. That is safe to do. You’ll have to okay that or you can’t print any bricks coupons. You only have to do it once. Also note that you can’t see the denomination of the coupon or the expiration date. Make sure your printer is on, and that you have paper in it. You don’t have to print them in color. If your default printer only prints in black and white, the coupon will print in black and white and it is perfectly valid.
