Our RCSS (out west) had the Cracker Barrel on sale for 4.99, which is the regular sale price for the 460g size in our area. So for us it worked out to be a great deal.

I'm not sure they can always match their point offers like that because they do often match prices.
I also had this bonus offer for 4500 pts for spending $15 on Cracker Barrel cheese. I spent 3 X $4.97 on CB cheese on sale this week at RCSS which totalled $14.91 but did not get the points so I did a missing points claim via the app. Got a confirmation email about 30 minutes after submitting confirming that I got the points.

Emboldened by your success, I bought 3 Cracker Barrel myself tonight (total $14.91) and did a points inquiry when I got home. The 4500 points were awarded within 5 minutes. Great buy on cheese!

Nice! Your points inquiries should be successful within a dime or so.

Good to know, thanks! Before now I would have bought 4 items @ $4.97 just to be sure, or skipped the offer altogether if I didn't like the math with 4 items. I'll be much bolder moving forward:-)

I had to do two points inquiries last week, not sure if others had the same problem (it was for the $40 gas fill and the Nestle chocolate)...check your receipts.

24 offers this week (!)

As suggested earlier, I scanned card every time, even for single item without points.
4 transactions last week.

Not sure yet if coincidence, or it actually works

I scan my card way more than my wife does and I got 12 offers to her 18 so I'm not sure of the logic here.

Anyone had their "offers we think you'll like" disappear on them? I got the Cracker Barrel offer yesterday and was going to use it today, but it's no longer there, along with two others that also vanished. What happened?

Is there a such thing as too many offers? I tried to load the new tasty rewards offers and only 2 out of the 3 loaded to my account!

Did you happen to print off 2 coupons already?

I believe you are allowed 4 combined coupon/PC Plus offer redemptions per month through Tasty Rewards (ie. 2 print coupons plus 2 PC Plus offers would max you out at 4 for the month).

I'd advise contacting TR and see what they say. If they can't load the 3rd offer for you, at least they can ensure you have 2 offers available for the rest of the month.

FYI (in case you were not aware) the offers every week roll over between Thursday & Friday at midnight. So any offers unused from last week, and not DELAYED by you on the App disappear.

This of course assumes that the offer expiry date was actually for October 5th (you can click on any offer & see the date in the fine print). I had the Cracker Barrel Offer in my WE THINK YOU'D LIKE List last week (along with 4 others). Woke up this AM to them all gone (as expected) and surprisingly NO NEW Offers for that particular category. Cannot recall the last time that happened.

Mind you I did get 19 NEW JUST FOR YOU Offers, along with the 3 I chose to DELAY... For a healthy 22 Offers thus far this week.

And, one of them is a very nice... X Points for $ Y Spend on my total purchase. Been awhile since I've had one of them.
