i think im almost 100% again....finally.  i've been sick pretty much the whole month of january, than started february trying to get rid or mrsa. the only positive side of being sick was the weight loss.  im down 12 lbs!  i guess 2 stomach viruses & a sinus infection will do that to ya.  here's to hoping i dont catch anything else.....i think im set for the year ;)

oh, and i need to START planning corey's birthday. he will be FIVE two weeks! FIVE?!?!  not sure how that happened but i need to get planning.  he wants all the boys from his pre-k class to come to his party and only one girl. guess she's special ;)

customer service.

what a day. my girlfriend needed to go to rite aid today, so i decided to join her.  we hit about 5 different stores, she was trying to get the edys/lays deal.  well, at one particular store (it's one I don't go too) i noticed they had their hair color products on clrx for $2.99 paired with the $3.00 coupon in sundays paper = free product.  boy, was i wrong.  the cashier asked the assistant manager if i could use the coupon since it was .01 more than the product. the assistant manager firmly said 'no'.  hmm. i told her all she had to do was adjust the coupon down or she could price modify the item.  she refused to do either, saying it was THEIR policy to not mark down coupons. she insisted if she marked down the coupon they would not receive credit either (not true). she gave me corporates number & began flipping through her policy packet.  she was very rude & short with me. it was clear i wasn't going to get anywhere with this woman.  i told her she could keep the hair color i would go to another rite aid.  once we left, i immediately called corporate.  guess who was right?  me!  shocker, huh?!  we drove not even a half mile down the road where i did get my hair color (i don't even use it, lol) and they gladly accepted my coupon!  a few hours later the store manager calls me back and apologizes for the 'incident'.  he received the complaint from corporate and was none to pleased with the assistant manager.  he was very apologetic & so nice.  i told him my main problem wasn't the fact that she was an assistant manager and she didn't know their policy, but there was NO need for her to be so rude with me. the store manager agreed she was in the wrong and could have definitely marked the coupon down.  for my troubles he is mailing me a $10 gift card....not too shabby. i do appreciate his concern & being so helpful, but i think i will steer clear of that particular store.

farm fresh.

the farm fresh deals haven't been great lately. i just went for the freebies ;)
free soup & cheese. only paid tax.


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of HBOseries. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you a 'Deadwood' fan? Do you like those wild west shows or movies?  Deadwood is a series on HBO that is all about the wild west.  Throw in the buried treasure, gun battles, and the american cowboy and you got yourself a pretty good show.  I'm not a huge fan of the wild west shows, but my father in law is.  On February 3, 2011 will have a phenomenal Gold Box deal to purchase the entire Deadwood series at a great discount! This would make sore an awesome gift for any holiday or a simply 'just because' purchase.  Since this is only going to be available for ONE day at such a GREAT price, I would suggest jumping on this deal. I found this little FACT page for those who don't know much about the show, but may think this could be a great gift idea for someone.

Do you have a favorite figure from the old west? I've only head of few, billy the kid.  I don't really have a favorite unless we are talking fictional movies as in Wild Wild West starring Will Smith ;)  Now, that is the type of 'old west' move I could watch.

So what are you waiting for?  Get on this hot deal February 3rd only!  If you like the the old west legend tales, biographies and history...this is definitely for YOU!
