Betty Crocker Catalog going out of business?
Wow! I just got a spam from Betty Crocker telling me I need to use my points before they close up shop! No way! According to their web site they are discontinuing the whole catalog thing.
Of course, I haven't bought anything from them in ages (and don't intend to now, I'm still broke and looking for work). The last time I bought something was several years ago, and it was a large silverware set. I think I'm pretty much set for life now, I have 28 place settings for fork/knife/spoon, and I think 12 or 16 of the other funny stuff that isn't commonly used. I might need more serving utensils someday though...
I've also got a huge stack of Betty Crocker coupons that date back to long long ago that have been passed on to me. I think over 10 years ago they stopped caring if the points had expired so the pile just grew and grew. It also seems like from time to time they don't even care if you send the points in.
I've always kept the most recent catalog they send me on my end table, just in case I need to order something. It will certainly be strange when the catalog is no longer around.
