Update on Sears order

As I stated in my previous post,I used 2 cards to complete my transaction so that I had enough to cover the balance. I also used a dollar credit from my Shop Rewards. I go website today to see when my order is shipping out. Here Sears cancelled my order. No explanation why. No email to let me know there was a problem,which there shouldn't have been. I call Sears toll free number. Since it's Thanksgiving no one is available. So I go on the VISA card's website to see what's going on. I look at the account summary and it stated Sears  put the order through, then claimed I had insufficient funds. I look back on the Sears website and check the order. None of the things are on sale now. I look at my VISA card balance and I now only have a balance of 12.01. Sears put a hold on my 30 dollar Visa gift card.I called Card Services and a customer service rep explained that Sears should refund my money by the 24th of November.

Smiley 360 Sears Promotion

I received a free 15.00 gift card from Smiley 360 to shop for holiday decorations at Sears. Since I didn't have time to go to my local store I shopped online. I found the cutest winter penguin shower curtain for my daughters bathroom upstairs. The price was a little over my card budget however,so I used another online Visa code I got and ordered my husband some gifts. I hope to get them in the mail at the end of this month. Here is a picture of what the shower curtain looks like:

If you would like info. on how to get one,you can click here. Thank you Smiley360 and Sears for making the holidays just a little bit brighter.

I was sent a Sears gift card as described above from Smile360 in exchange for my opinion via facebook, twitter, blog and/or word-of-mouth.  I was not further compensated for my opinion and the text written above is in my own words

Benjamin Moore Paint via BzzAgent

I was very fortunate to get in on the Benjamin Moore BzzAgent promotion. My 11 year old wanted her bedroom painted and this was the perfect opportunity for us to try out Benjamin Moore's new Aura Paint. It has a very low VOC. In fact,she was able to sleep in her room that night after painting. There was hardly any odor at all. The color she picked was Mystical Grape. A very vibrant purple. Here are some before and after photos:

 This was the color the sellers painted her room boring tan/beige.
 There used to be a second door to her room,we removed it when we first moved in and replaced drywall.
 Getting ready to tape!

 After photos brilliant Mystical Grape!

Thanks so much Benjamin Moore and BzzAgent. My daughter loves her room now.
Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I've had some personal issues at home that I've been taking care of. I was fortunate that Hurricane Sandy didn't affect my family. We just had some branches and what not. Nothing major. However the kids didn't get to celebrate Halloween until last night. We only had two trick or treaters show up. Our porch lights weren't working properly so maybe that's why. I hope everyone is happy and healthy and has a pleasant week.
