    I have questions related to Jewel…first, your Jewel hasn’t been added to your 411 list (just in case you forgot) and second, how do you know when to use your Jewel gas rewards? I just shop to get the really good deals at jewel, so I slowly accumulate the points, but I’m never sure if I should wait and let additional dollars expire or use up the money right away…thanks so much for your blog..it’s so nice to have a blog in the Chicagoland area!
