Does this offend you? If so, please do ALL of the following! It only takes a minute!
I've been boycotting them for a few months because of this (it's been posted since Jan.). I wrote them about it, too, but never rec'd a response.
Did anyone notice the spelling error on the contest page? It's "bastket" instead of "basket" in the prize listing. I so wanted to comment on that and let them know my HS'ed child picked up on it right away.
I also asked them in my message to offer at least an "alternate" contest and/or prize.
I'm not exactly fond of Scholastic lately, either. While they "tolerate" HS'ers, they don't go out of their way at all to market to us, or serve us.
I just read this update from Subway and Scholastic on my local HS board:
Regarding your concerns about the Subway contest that excludes home
Throughout the course of the year Scholastic runs a number of
We appreciate your feedback and will make sure a similar situation
If anyone has any additional comments to make regarding this contest,
Yeah!! I'm glad we don't have to boycott Subway either. My kids only eat pizza and McDonald's when eating out (they're VERY picky at home too) I haven't been able to get them to eat Subway before(they don't like ham & cheese etc.) They are weird children. But I had an incredible desire for some Subway today and talked my kids into trying the Spicy Italian with melted cheese. I called it a pizza sub. LOL!! They gobbled it up. Hooray!! We can branch out on "I don't want to cook today" days.
I wonder what their response would be if we suggested having a "homeschooler" contest? It's been done in the past (particularly in my local area where there are a ton of us).
Anyone want to start letters, petitions, etc.? :) LOL
The kids and I order one sub, split it three ways (they are young) and it's a fairly cheap lunch. Italian BMT, please....
Yeah we like it too, but we stood firm and ate at Firehouse Subs when this was going on. Glad they apologized. Hope they learned that we are not all that isolated.
I am so proud of how well homeschoolers stand together - I am so proud to be one of you guys!
