Good buys using my JCP button codes

So far, I have won 2 $5 prizes and 1 $10 prize from the jcp button codes. Today I bought my 5 year old a shirt and pants from the Okie Dokie line for $3 total for both pieces. I bought my husband a pair of soft sleep pants for $1 and I bought myself a scarf for $2 using my prize certificates. Six bucks total out of pocket and I have more buttons to enter tomorrow!

Anyone else have a good experience redeeming the button prizes? The JCP I go to is one of the new style stores and it's really nice in there.

I've earned $85 dollars so far in rewards. I've bought tons of Christmas presents. I have never been in JcPenney as much as I have in the last 2 weeks. I love this button thing.

I am an associate at JCP. We thought at my store that the button would be cheesy. Still kind of do, but many customers have earned 5 or 10$ certificates and we had a customer win a 100$ gift card.

Be kind to us workers during this season, the stores have been a complete disaster and we are trying our best!
Glad you both won something!

Bought my DH a sports jacket for $10. It was originally $65, on clearance for $30, rang up at $20, and I used a $10 holiday gift certificate. Today my DD and I used three $10 gift certificates to get a Lulu make-up case and compact mirror for free and a Yankees t-shirt for DH for $2.00.

I spent $47 the other day and won $15 from buttons to go back and spend. I will probably try to get something for DD18. I love the buttons! They are so cute but I haven't figured out what to do with them yet. I hope to collect more this week.

I won $90.

I completely replaced the towels for my master bathroom. We got some really nice fluffy, quick drying pretty ones.

I also got 2 sweaters, a hat, a TShirt and some hand towels for I think $24 after the certificates.

Loved getting the towels free.

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

So if I have $20 in certficates, can I get a $20 item for free or I do just get $10 off that item and then need to use the other certificate on a separate item/transaction?
Separate transactions, but you could ring up 2 items separately & use 2 codes that way.

Thanks for the info. I was hoping I could stack them on one item if I have more than one. I'll keep it in mind.

So far I have gotten my DD9 2 pairs of sleep pants for free and gotten my DD14 2 long sleeved shirts for free, and 2 camis for $2. I bought my son a nice flannel shirt for $10 just because I liked it.

My 9 year old loves collecting the buttons.

I'm loving the buttons! In a perfect world we could win tickets to see Ellen but $10 certificates are good.

They had the Jake toys in sale so we got Tick Tock Croc/ a pair of socks & Hook with his boat/a headband for free. The jake toys were $8.

So far I was able to get two youth Adidas Wis Badger sweatshirts marked from $25 down to $17. After two $10 certs, I got them for $7 each.
I got a Wis badger winter hat, originally $15, marked down to $10, and then free with a $10 cert.
And lastly, I got a Justin Bieber fleece nightshirt originally $10, marked down to $6, and only $1 with a $5 cert.

So two sweatshirts, a winter hat and a nightshirt for $15 total out of pocket.

Yea! I am really enjoying shopping this year
