That $50 Lowes coupon is a scam!

That $50 Lowes coupon popping up on people’s Facebook feed is indeed a scam.  Please do not give them any of your information or try to use the coupon.  It has been confirmed by Lowes corporate that it is a scam.  These people are trying to ascertain your email and mailing address so that they can sell it to people who will send you spam and advertising.

Most of these contests are just that scams.  I don’t fill out anything that isn’t from a legit blogger or legit website.  I see them all the time “Win $100,000 Amazon Gift Card” – really are you kidding me.  Common sense should tell you that one one is giving away a $100,000 Amazon Gift Card.  Stay away or you will get burned.

Did you know there is a statute of limitations on debt?

I didn’t know this but my favorite consumer advocate Clark Howard has a wonderful article on his website that explains all about the statute of limitations on debt.

Check to see what the time frame is in your own state.  This may help someone who is struggling to pay back debt or is being harassed by a debt collector.

Herr’s Potato Chip Review and Giveaway!

From the time I was a little girl the only brand of chips I can ever recall my Mom purchasing was the Herr’s brand.  My Mom was very brand loyal and even though she was on a tight budget she would seldom waiver from her usual brands each week. Herr’s products were plentiful in our area since they are manufactured right in Pennsylvania (where I am originally from). It was our families number one choice and still is. Always fresh and consistent in taste the Herr’s brand is still owned and operated by the Herr’s family after all these years.

Established in 1946 the Herr’s brand has a full line of more than 340 items including potato chips, pretzels, tortilla chips, cheese curls, popcorn, crackers, nuts, pork rinds, onion rings and meat sticks.

With potato chip flavors like Sour Cream and Onion, No-Salt, Old Bay (crab seasoning), Salt and Vinegar, Pizza, Red Hot, Slightly Salted, Pennsylvania Dutch, Dill, and Sour Cream and Cheddar there’s bound to be one for every chip lover in your house.  I know my favorite is the new Honey BBQ – yummy!
