New Years Musings and Reminders

Ah..... Dec 31. Such a big day in every couponer's life. There are coupons expiring, refunds to be mailed, and maybe it's time to renew

If you don't know the expiration date on your subscription you can always click the link in the left column on Michele's Updates to have it sent to you. Also, an email is sent out one week before, and a day before, subscriptions expire. But there are two problems: we have to have your current email address, and some servers block our emails (like AOL). If your email has changed, I'm always happy to update it in our system. Please drop me a quick email with your old and new emails with your NAZ, and I'll get that taken care of.

Reminder --- 180 printable coupons will disappear at midnight on Take a few minutes to print whatever you want from now.

It's Political Day on Off Topic. Please use your real first name as it appears on your membership, or your post will not appear.

Here's to a great 2016!!
