August 19- September 15, 4x fuel points on gift cards at Kroger!

This saves me more than the 5% off at Target. I need $400 more in gift cards to cover our dining. At target I would save $20. At Kroger I get 1600 points, $1.60 off per gallon. I usually do a 15 gallon fill up so I save $24. I can pay for the gift cards with my disney visa and earn back $4 on the gift card purchase!

Thanks for the heads up at Krogers. I had not seen that yet. Time to purchase a few more gift cards!

You may be correct.... Still not sure! If nothing else, you can use your gift cards on anything while you're at Disney!!!

Hi gang!!! Made it over....It took me a while to get through the other thread since I was unable to get on over the weekend much .

I posted on that one too, but I am from NC. I was born in a small town in eastern NC but have been in CAry, which is close to Raleigh, for the past 19 years. My DH is from Syracuse and he runs into more people from his home town than I do...

I am also a SAHM and my DH works in the RTP (Research Triangle Park) lab world. I feel like I am a honorary cab driver though because that is where I spend my time... driving from LAX, to soccer, to basketball, to swimming, to dance, to schools, to grocery to get wine... Not complaining though, I love it!

I am most excited about staying on property for the first time. We have a lot of hotel points so that has always been a hard sale with DH.


Smitch, love the pics!!

We are also booked for Oct 21st so JL and I will be fighting over the chocolate cake.

I also have a ADR that night at 1900 Prime (my dd loves the stepsisters) at 7 that I keep trying to find another time for but have not been able to yet....I really hope I can. That would not work I don't believe.

Alright, check in with you guys later. Off to the movies with kids.

I'm really nervous about this as well. My kids will be missing 7 days! (gasp!) because we decided to go the week before Thanksgiving and then visit family the week of Thanksgiving. D is now in 7th grade and this is a new school system for us. Other than regular orthodontic appointments however, she never misses school.

Any idea if it will be like their last fuel promotion? The one that ended on Aug 3 was only 4x for CLOTHING related gift cards, meaning JCP, Kohl's, etc. it was in the fine print on the sign near the cards.

As a 7th grade teacher, I actually try to plan around if I know kids will be out when and if I can. If a student tells me far in advance, if I can move something important, or teach it a bit early, I will.

The week before any break is packed full of tests at our school since we want to test the students before they leave for a bit. It is not unusual for kids to have a test in every class the week before Thanksgiving. The earlier your student tells the teachers, the better, in my opinion. It can be very hard on students, but it can be done!

My 2 cents...

Ok need a place to vent and maybe get ideas. I don't want to start a new thread as there have been many on the topic, I think I may have even started one, but as the trip gets closer there's more drama!

We going on a trip (each family paying their own portion) with my inlaws, and two bother in-laws and their families. 8 adults, 6 kids.

One family has yet to book. When the trip comes up the adults get testy, mean, snarky, and generally unpleasant. SO when free dining came out we instructed our TA to move us to a moderate if price was comparable to get the discount. This decision was made with myself (the Disney nut) and the other two families who have booked.

Fastforward to today when dh had to inform other brother we did make the switch to secure discount. The brother knew it was a possibility prior too and my dh tried calling and texting him Saturday when changes happened. His brother didnt answer.

The 3 families are going and doing just Disney. The other brothers family is planning on stopping at mammoth cave KY, doing sea world for a day, universal for a day and then meeting us at Disney. So obviously cost isn't their issue!

But the brother freaked out on my dh and is just being nasty about the whole trip. I am worried about tuem ruining the trip...

Whew feel a bit better at just saying it all. Any ideas? They've got their daughter excited about going but we've stressed since day one its a big expense no one needs to do it if they aren't wanting too....

It is only for us Jersey folk.

Coconuts...I bet most people here wouldn't even know that we have at least 2 distinct "accents" in our state, huh? Much less our 'teams' that is pretty much decided on by the 95/206 split!

Not sure. It just says coming soon, 4x fuel points. But it does picture a variety of cards on the ad - Food, iTunes, movies, dept store.
