Yes. And Top Value, too. I even still have some full books of both. Wonder if they'll ever be worth something on eBay?

Premiums like these basically increase prices.

Don't buy anything because of a "bonus." Try to get the best value for your dollar,and if you get some kind of premium, then fine. But "bonus points" tend to be false gains.

Hello RONALD777. Yes, I remember the days of S&H green stamps. One of my least fond memories was when I worked in a service station and had to carry them in my pocket. Any time, it would rain or snow the pages would stick together if you didn't keep them dry.

On a personal side, I remember we had one "Redemption Center" in Pittsburgh, PA. My late Mother took her box of filled books there and exchanged the entire box of books for a slide projector screen (remember those?) for my 17th birthday gift. Great memory :-). MGY

They disappeared while I was in college. Very few places still gave them so I never got them, but my parents did.
