    I am in Etown Kentucky and I was able to get the cashier to try running more than 1 through yesterday. She scanned and since it worked she let it go. Another employee at the same store would not do it for my friend today. She was kind of rude today too especially over the buttons.

    We've won 25 dollars the first round of buttons, 30 the second, and so far 5 for the third. Still have 10 or o buttons to enter. I think it's a pain to only enter two a day.

    I hadn't won anything the last two days and today got two 10.00 and one 5.00. I am guessing it pretty much is randomized. Still love this promo!

    Entered my first 2 buttons today and got 2 $10 certificates!

    Is the expiration date for the certificates 12-24? Or is that just the end of the promotion? We leave for Disney on Saturday and won't be back until after Christmas, so I'm hoping I can use these because it would kill me to see these go to waste!

    The codes on the buttons must be entered by 12/24 but the "Holiday Certificates" do not expire until 12/31.

    Today was my first day losing :sad1: I've been playing 2 buttons per day for 10 days and I've always won something until this morning. I can't complain though, I've gotten 95.00 in free merchandise so far :cool1: The past two days had been my best, (2) 10's each day!! LOVE this promo, guess I'm off to Penney's to spend yesterday's winnings :drive:

    So far I've entered 6 buttons and all 6 were not winners! :crazy2: I have 4 more to enter so maybe I still can win something.

    I think I am just really looking for a good reason to go back to Penny's. Found some really good deals there. If anyone is looking for kids coats they are 30% off now.

    They e-mail the cert. the next day. I've won 95.00 so far and I've received each one the next day. No ideas about the code problem.

    What is everyone doing with the buttons after you enter them? They're too cute to throw away. There must be something creative we can do with them. Any ideas?

    So did mine! I had to hide the buttons whose codes I haven't entered yet so they wouldn't take those, too!

    Yesterday between my husband, daughter and I received about 10 buttons total. 8 of them have come back, code already used! :sad1: I'm beginning to wonder if people are bringing back their used buttons and exchanging them for new ones?????

    I'm sending them in to school with my kids for their end-of-the-year parties. Too cute to toss them, too many to keep them all.

    I just read your post and thought "that has not happened to me" and sure enough - the first 6 buttons I entered said they had already been used. I picked up some new buttons on Friday but had not entered any of them in yet as I still had some older buttons which I entered over the weekend. I used some of the newer buttons today and those are the ones I got that reply from. I did have enough buttons to enter 4 (2 for me and 2 for DH) and one won $10.00 so all is not lost. :cheer2:

    Just a few more days to enter our buttons - I wish I could do more a day.

    I wonder if people are just entering random numbers and then your number is one that someone already used.

    I also got buttons yesterday and it took me 6 buttons this morning to get 2 codes unused...I saved them to try again tomorrow in case it was some weird bug, but I'm not optimistic.

    Still loved the promo though - while I only won $10's and $5's, it was enough for me to get a whole new refresh to my winter shirt wardrobe:)...might have to switch from Kohl's to JCP after this!
