Its time to raise the bar at MDHC! Last week we introduced the idea of rolling your Extrabuck rewards into multiple transactions to minimize your total cost. This week we will do our challenge between 2 separate transactions. Just follow along closely and prepare all your coupons ahead of time. Good luck!

This week’s challenge requires at least 2 copies of the Sunday newspapers. If you ended our last week’s challenge with us, you should have a total of $5.50 Extrabuck rewards to use this week. If this is your first time you should NOT spend more than $20 in this challenge.
