In fact, it saved me $4 on a $12 purchase at Walgreens on Nob Hill and 64th earlier today. I use it every time I make a purchase where those rewards numbers are on option to put into that ‘Rona laden keypad at the store you frequent.

Simple math tells you that adds up quick. And if you have typically large grocery bills, or buy many bigger ticket items, you save or keep even more.

The 80’s song I am referring to, is the Tommy Tutones song “867-5309”. That’s “Jennys number”. Check out the super cheesy video to reference this catchy tune.

Your cool uncle, aunt, dad or mom, may have it the song on their devices. It’s catchy and can save you money.

A few years ago, somebody decided to use this number instead of giving out their real number. Smart. When you give out your real number, you are giving up personal information. Spammers can get it. Your number and info can be sold online. So for those who appreciate privacy and want to protect it, like me, it’s a win-win.

Now obviously most of these reward numbers are in the 10-digit format, so an area code is required. Since my former home area code is 831, I use 831-867-5309 and it works everywhere I have used it. I tried using the Yakima valley area code, 509-867-5309, but it has not worked as well.

This number works at most places that use keypads which includes gas station pumps.

Since Yakima is full of transplants, you may try your former home area code then “Jenny’s number”.

Now “you got it”. Instead of, "for a good time call", you can replace the lyrics with, “for saaaaaavings call…”

That was cheesy – just like the song.
