Update #2 on Promotion Rewards

Previously I wrote about getting freebies for activities I was already planning to do - i.e. double dipping. Here is an update on the status of the rewards for participating.

Since these were activities I was already planning to do, the promotion is a nice additional bonus. However, now that I qualified for each promotion, I am tracking them until the bonuses are received :-)

Overall, I am impressed with the timeliness of most of the bonuses. The Mazda promotion is the only one that is still outstanding, but it is still within the 6-8 week time frame.

I did the Bausch and Lomb eye thing too and am sooooo happy with my new cases. That is one thing I do not have to put on my shopping list for a long time.

I signed up for the Wear&Care kit too, and it just arrived yesterday...with coupons that expired in 2006. I am happy with the new cases, though.
