I have been on the new site about 20 min. and already had an error, I was checking my saved recipes and could not get to page 2.
One of the perks of the old site was the shared recipes(when they were published) & most memories were nice to read. If we all bake at least once a week, we should be able to print at least 4 coupons, not the limit of 2. With holidays, we should be able to print more. I am on a fixed income and use coupons every week, if I get a better deal on another brand of chips or evap. milk etc. I sure will take advantage. The amount of the coupon is too low for the price of the Nestle product. I also have not found a reason for the points, would be nice to be applied to coupons for "free" items(1 free bag of chips =1000 points) This site would be better if the navagation was like the old site. The background and photos are nicer here

Thank you for taking the time to look around the new site!

We have been working to get rid of the error messages and swapped recipes will be back soon.  Memories can now be found in Community under "Shared Stories".

Are you able to see coupons for all of our products?

Thanks for the compliment on the background; we will keep it updated each season!

I was hoping wiith the new site, it would be easier to find helpful hints, and also have video classes (like there was at one time.)  I feel this layout makes it harder to learn new skills as you have to search for them.  You can't learn about something you don't know about.
Also I very much liked the swapped recipies - please bring them back.

I really like the layout -  much nicer looking.  I was able to find pretty much everything that I need just took longer.  The new search for recipes is going to take a little to get use to.  But overall great up-grade.  Also waiting for those swapped recipes!!

When I tried to log on this morning I got a message that my e-mail address was not in your system. I have been a member for about 3 years. I had to join again to make this post, and have lost all my points. What gives?????

Is it just me or did anyone else lose their recipes in their recipe box? All those years of hard work finding and trying out new recipes just went down the drain! But I did see my points!

Let me try this again... Is it just me or did anyone else lose their recipes in their recipe box? All those years of hard work putting together a collection of new recipes to try for my family and friends and they're lost in one day. Thanks guys!

I like the changes.  I have had very little trouble finding what I wanted. I had lost patience with the previous site and had not checked for several days.  I'm glad I looked - very nice.
