    I posted my Jewel deal here. It’s always tricky to determine how they count the $30…and will the Cats print without the prefered card if you try and do it off the regular prices? Could get a better deal that way, but still, they paid me for a cartful of good stuff I will actually use!
    They also have “Holiday Bucks” and I got a $1 cat for spending $25.
