They drive me insane. They are my NEWEST pet peeve. I can never read the letters, always have to enter in the letters at least 3 times. My eyesight is fine and today I had one with a cat font. The letters had little cats attached to them. I felt like Nancy Drew trying to get those letters down!:mad:


:D

Oh and Happy Easter everyone!:)

That drives me nuts too. It's almost as bad as trying to read those little numbers in the Coke bottle caps for the My Coke Rewards program. My husband was the one collecting them, but I was the one who had to keep entering them in. Finally I went on strike and told him he could do it himself and now he never saves them. lol

haha, lori you have to enter the coke-codes too??
lukas is collecting them, no, others are collecting them for him,
i don't buy any cola, but this way he gets all the songs from i-tunes he wants
without paying even 1 cent

I could have turned the points in at any time to get "stuff", but none of the stuff every appealed to me.

I would have turned them in just for anything if I had actually won anything.

I am like the biggest loser. I never win anything. One time they were giving away 40 xmas turkeys. There were 45 of us and I did not win. Still makes me :mad: when I think about it and it has been 3 years!:D

I collect the coke codes too (for me), and though you can redeem them for drawing entries, you can also redeem them for items/coupons. I got a free Kodak photo book with mine (just had to pay for pages over 20 and shipping). I also collect Pampers codes, and have enough for a free 20 page shutterfly book - I just have to decide what pages to put in it, lol!

Anyhoo, I too hate those word boxes, all the scrap sites seem to have them for subscriptions, and I never get them right on the first try.
