Kroger $25 Grocery Credit

Good news, our area Kroger stores are participating in the $25 grocery credit when you transfer a prescription to Kroger.  This runs through 6/12 according to the ad (the Pharmacy Tech at the 419/221 Kroger told me through June).  A couple of things to keep in mind:

1. You don't need a coupon to get the credit.
2. Not valid on prescriptions transferred from other Kroger stores.
3. The credit is loaded to your Kroger Shopper's card, so you have to give them your card when you pick up your prescription.
4. The credit is only good when your total grocery order is over $25.  The cashier will receive an alert on their register having them ask you if you want to use the credit or not during that transaction.

Remember, Kroger has the awesome $4 generic program where you don't even need your insurance card!!  This way, there may be some prescriptions you can transfer over earlier than you would normally be able to fill them under insurance plans!

Book Review - Plan B by Pete Wilson

As I mentioned before, I have been privileged to be able to review books for Book Sneeze and want to pass on a summary of the lastest book I read, as well as my reactions.  This book will be available starting tomorrow.

Plan B: What do you do when God doesn’t show up the way you thought He would?
By Pete Wilson

Plan B discusses how many people react to situations and problems we face in our lives. Wilson urges us to accept that just because we are in the midst of a crisis doesn’t mean that God is punishing us or that He has somehow failed to provide for us. We often find ourselves in situation where things didn’t go as we planned it, but the true challenge (and reward) is in the way we deal with these situations and how we use them to help others.

My Review
Wilson makes some very astute, yet difficult to stomach, observations. When we are in the midst of a crisis, it is difficult for us to understand or fathom why these things are happening to us. Wilson reminds us that we are not God, we are not in control, and we don’t know the master plan. The very fact that we may have written a path and a future for ourselves, separate from God’s plan, may be the source of our failures and frustrations. His insights are humbling, thought-provoking, and sometimes difficult to accept. However, if we take an honest look into our motivations and self aspirations, we may find that we have been on the wrong path all along. Most importantly, we learn to accept that sometimes things just happen that we don’t have an explanation for, no matter how heart-wrenching and difficult they are to deal with, but it doesn’t mean that God is not still in control.


Stocking my Kitchen.....

Do you recall I posted about Swagbucks here?  Well, I just placed my first order on Amazon using my gift cards and scored a really nice frying pan for less than $20 with the gift cards I have won so far.  This baby shipped free with SuperSaver shipping at Amazon, so I didn't even have to pay for it to be delivered right to my house!  I think I love Swagbucks!  Oh, as a side one has signed up for SB yet under the previous post, so that's why there hasn't been any winner announced.  It's not too late if you'd still like a chance to have a envelope full of your favorite coupons mailed to you.
