Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

*The last $3.00 +Up Reward did not print for me; my balance toward the last $10 was $9.96. I'm calling corporate tomorrow to see whether they'll send me the reward - typically it does print when it's that close to the total* - UPDATE: Reward is on its way, though the rep did give me lip about being a few cents short. I almost wish Rite Aid had refused so I could have written a stern letter requesting clarification on this policy and emphasizing that its competition CVS has a clear and generous 98% of total policy in place. I suppose I still could do that; the lawyer in me certainly wants to!
