Why can't P&G and CVS just get along?

So, today I scored at CVS - occasionally they run a circular with awesome deals and this week is one of them. Score on Charmin, Coke products, and Deer Park water plus more and get a $10 savings card while doing it. Well vitamins were BOGO, and I saved $5 on those, had $3 Smart Cash, and got another $5 coupon off of something else... plus got the $10 savings card. I was super happy. Only one thing -- all P&G coupons only apply to Kroger cards unless you get the flyer in the mail! Oh so sad! When are we going to get one rewards card for everything - one card for all coupons and rewards! or at least the ability to add coupons for P&G to all cards for now -- c'mon compromise! That's my two cents. But seriously, great savings at CVS again this week.

Shopkicks App

I have a new app on my Android - Shopkicks. You get rewarded for just stepping into a store near you such as a Kohl's or JCPenney. Not a bad deal, and a good addition to coupons, rewards programs, and savings and discount programs in general. The general deal is that you pick some goal to work towards such as a gift card and get points towards that gift card for walking in to stores and/or shopping for certain dollar amounts at stores. The stores are nationwide, and the deals really add up if you're in the city. It's probably a great idea for Christmas shopping and such - when you're already going to go for Macy's, etc. as gas is generally pretty expensive. I think it has inspired me to look before I go into a store and see if it's on the list. So, maybe I might make one of these stores the 1st on my list. Let me know if you have any experiences with this App..
