Whew! I hit the big 3 all in one 2 hour excursion…I’m beat! I know the numbers don’t look that spectacular, but you might notice there is very little processed food. Lots of meat, dairy, vegeatables and household and paper products. I’m happy! I probably won’t have to do a big shopping trip until the middle of April!

  1. Do you have a direct link to the recyclebank 5/50 for vons? thanks

    • No, but this is how I get there.

      Log in -> Get Rewards (light blue menu box to the right) -> Food & Beverage -> Then scroll down. For me it appears at the very bottom of the page.
