Coupons I Can't Use + fitbit update

December 12th, 2013 at 09:06 pm

So I was going through my emails in my hotmail account where I have all my MyPoints mail sent. In amoungst the MP emails there were about 7 emails from various restaurants for free food - a number of years ago I'd joined a bunch of birthday clubs. Of course they were all places located in the DFW metroplex area, none of which are less than 90 miles from where I am now (the closest one is Schlotsky's (sp?) ) I really would love to go to Blue Mesa again, or to Cheesecake Factory or .... Oh well, that's the choice I made by coming here.

My fitbit was giving me fits yesterday - not counting correctly at all. So today I sent an email to customer service. They replied promptly and told me that my fitbit is defective and I could either return it to Walgreen's, or send them my receipt and they'd replace it. So I headed off to Walgreen's after work today and they exchanged it with no hassle! So I now have a beautifully working fitbit.

I currently have it connected to Walgreen's Balance Rewards, My Fitness Pal, GymPact, Achievemint and something else too I think.

I got in almost 5k steps today ... and that was *after* getting the new one.

I got approved for the Judy Freeman seminar in February!! This will be my third year going. It makes for a nice little mini-vacation. I stay in this fancy hotel the night before, eat breakfast for free at their buffet with a made to order omlette, go to the seminar and eat lunch out (reimbursed) and then head on home again. Smile I wish the per diem was a flat rate and you didn't have to prove you spent however much on food ... but still, it makes a great paid for mini-vacation. Big Grin (plus getting to see all the great new books for kids!)

I made $6 with Pinecone this week, and am within a few days of cashing out for a $5 AGC from irazoo again (thanks to their coupon deal - 60 pts a day!)

I had to fill up with gas today - $30.59 for 10.xx gallons ($2.595/gallon)

I also spent $60 at Albertson's. Not all of it was food (I bought a bottle that will be good for shaking protein drinks in.) I found these individual vegetarian split pea soup bowls - 220 calories, 24gr protein!! $1.29 each. I bought all 5 they had on the shelf ... That's one thing I'm trying to up - my protein intake. So that is almost pure protein calories! (a vegetarian source of it too!)

    I have a fitbit too, and the customer service is excellent. Yay for a properly working one! And Happy Birthday to you!!

    I have a fit bit too.

    I actually lost it in the airport in Sacramento flying to DC in September. Someone found it, figured out what it was and sent it to the company in SF. They figured out it was mine and shipped it back to me, no shipping or anything. I was relieved to get it back but I had already replaced it, so now I have two!

    What excellent customer service they have!

    Yes, I am very impressed with their customer service. Smile
    If either of you are signed up for Walgreen's Balance Rewards program, you can connect your fitbit to it and get credited for your steps. 40k points = $50 Smile Every little bit helps. Smile (for motivation and for the wallet)

    I did not know about the rewards. Sounds like a great program!

  5. littlegopher Says:

    I am signed up for the Walgreen's reward program, but didn't know about linking my fitbit to it - thanks for the tip!!

  6. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    I love finding every which way to make a few more pennies without any extra effort. Smile
    btw - Acheivemint is a website - if you have a smartphone your points would add up faster, but if you link it to My Fitness Pal and to Fitbit, you still can build up points quickly with or without a smartphone. Smile
