  1. Hey, Laurie! Have you used this yet? I’m always kinda leery of these things and wanted to get your thoughts. I value your opinion.

    • I’m still figuring it out! I totally think it’s safe to use (after trying it, it doesn’t ask for your location or anything like that…. at least as far as I can tell). Unfortunately you have to have your iphone updated though, so I’m only able to use it on my ipad right now (I gotta make that update!) On iPads, for whatever reason Publix isn’t included 🙁

      There are a TON of coupons there that really could make for some decent savings, so I’m determined to get it added soon to my phone so I can see more how it works. I haven’t actually put in a receipt yet, but when I do I’ll update with a new post (gotta get that phone updated!) From what I can tell it does at least look safe to use – just watch to make sure it never includes your location (that’s always my biggest fear when signing up for new things using my phone!) Sorry that doesn’t help more, but maybe it’ll get you started 🙂

      • Thanks! I never updated my iPhone either – in fact, I never updated the last time, so I’m two updates behind! But, my husband has the new iPhone 5, so I may have him download it!
