interesting kinda simple but confusing :)Is this there way of trying to get us to spend more? :)

Dawn Rae said...

I don't like this. Do we have to earn our doubles now?

Off topic, did you know your site is marked yellow on McAfee Site Advisor?

Thank you Cathy for posting this. I copied your post with a big link to your blog! I didn't have any additional info to add and didn't want to add anything confusing! Thanks for typing this up so clearly!

does this mean no doubles in the papers? And curious if anyone knows if it is before or after tax?

Dawn- It is a little annoying huh? It is like we have to pay to use doubles. If you are spending $25 anyway it is a bonus, but if we do not get them in the paper that will be sad.

Ginger- What does yellow mean? CAUTION? How do we improve the rating?

jenny- Pretty sure is is before tax and coupons like any other catalina. We do not know if this is the end for paper doubles. HOPE NOT!

So if i do two of the spend $15 get a $5 onyo order will i get two of the $5 onyo? i have always done them separately because of doubles but if i had to spend money to get doubles that would be how i would be able to hit the 25 to trigger them. Thanks for the quick response

No you would not get 2 $5 cats!

GingerS said...

Yeah, green means according to their tests, the site is safe. Yellow means use with caution. Red means you shouldn't use it. Their webmaster's page has a section on how to dispute a rating if you're a site owner. They should be able to give you more information about what they think the problem is.


I've never had a problem with your site. But then, I have things blocked up the wazoo through firefox.

Fabulessly Frugal said...

THanks. We certainly would never intentionally put anything harmful on our site. We will have to look into it and see if there is something we can do different.

We're GREEN now! Thanks Ginger!
