Recalls. Free Victoria Secret and Staples Rewards.... Oh my!

Today I spent the morning do a few much needed random errands...

The first being a trip to Bath and Body Works to return 3 of 4 recalled lighters that I had bought last November.

Product Recalls

For three lighters I recieved a refund of $31.80. Which is a great deals since I used a coupon to get them buy one get one when I bought them. 

My Question is should this total go into my spread sheet?

Next Stop was Victoria Secret 

I had a coupon for Free Panties WITHOUT making a purchase.  It also had a $10.00 of a Bra coupon attached, but a purchase was not nesecary for the free underwear!

Finally have you heard of Stapples Rewards?

I dropped off three empty ink Cartridges  for 3 $3.00 credits in staples reward dollars.  While I was there to drop off my direct TV boxes via FED Ex since we switched back to cable.

Random Fact:

I hate coffee and the smell of it. I request the coffee samples and keep them in the freezer for whenever we get guests who enjoy coffee. They then have a variety and new flavors and brands to try.
