Healthy Choice Reminder-Update

Just thought I'd remind everyone to send in their HC forms before the year is out to get their miles. Also wanted to check if there are any double mile forms floating around out there.

I've been doing this promo all year and I've had my fill of these products and still have quite a few in the freezer (and soup in the cupboard). It looks like I will be a few upc's/receipts short for my next 10. if anyone will be a couple over or have given up and would be willing to send me their extras, please e-mail me. Thanks...

Toppshelff or anyone- Does HC require store receipts or not? Does someone have the address to send the UPC's to?

Address is: Healthy Choice Frequent Flyer Offer

But I think you need the form which is available through the UAL web-site.

Yes, HC does require store receipts with HC items circled.

FINAL COUNT:
Last week I gave up and sent in the big package, bringing the year's total to 17,500 Health Choice miles, meaning 35 certificates @ 500 miles each, meaning I bought 350 total HC items. Right now I'm left with 15 frozen meals with the UPCs removed, & I hope they don't get freezer burn, along with 36 cans of soup also with the UPCs removed which I hope won't give me heartburn.

FTers - What's your final HC count for the year? I think we should give an award for the most HC miles earned!

Healthy Choice has given me 9,500 miles and a garage full of their chocolate puddings. I'm just hoping there is no Y2K food shortage cuz that's what my family and I will be living on if there is.

7000 miles during the double miles promotion and I just sent off 110 UPCs so I should get another 5500. Not to bad but I'm probably only in the middle of this pack.

I really cashed in with this offer -

I bought 2 cases of HC chocolate pudding - 144 cups in each case @ $.25 each cup.

This yielded 14,500 miles.

I also earned 12,500 miles from other products, mostly frozen meals and soups. This brings my total for the year to 27,000!

My final total is 17,500 miles, 7,000 of those coming from the double miles offer. Cost per mile--0.0155 during double miles, 0.025 the remainder of the year. Not bad!

You guys put my wife and I to shame I told her to collect them and we've been (or so I thought) rather diligent and we only collected *sixty*. I told her about the pudding thing and we've searched all the stores around us but no one sells the pudding.

Oh well. 3000 miles. I earned more last week on my own and I didn't even travel

PS I assume the form has to be postmarked by the end of the year, right?

I got 2000 miles earlier, with the double promotion (from 20UPCs). I will be getting another 1500 more miles by year end. I will be using the certificates to top off the accounts of some of my relatives who do not fly much. My mom has 23K on Delta, so I requested 2K in Delta certificates. My brother has 4K on Continental, so I will order 1K on Continental so that he can convert to Hilton.

I received 10,000 miles in the first run, and just sent in for 8,000.

Randy should make a "Promotion of the year" category for non travel companies, and give a Freddia to Con-Agra for this one.
