I've been reading on here about all you gals getting multiple flair buttons. I went today for the first time, and got ONE!!!!! I don't care about the prizes, which after you enter your button, how do you find out if you've won.? I just want the buttons. They are so stinking cute.
There's just that much there I would want to buy!!!! Help!!!!

you have to go to each register and ask. You don't have to buy anything... as they have started getting rid of so many, some have started giving out only 1.

I can generally pick up about 10-12 each trip.

I guess it's going to depend on the cashier and how much they adhere to the 'rules'. One of the ladies at our Penney's said they were supposed to give 2 per person and were being strict about it. But my husband saw one give (on another day) a handful to a kid. I'm glad they only allow 2 codes per day though because that makes it more fair to people entering.

It totally depended on the cashier. Some handed me a little jewelry box of pins and told me to take two, others chose two for me, and two cashiers gave me a small handful.

I was purchasing things at the time and it seemed they were only giving buttons out if people asked for them. So many people didn't!

They have supersoft fuzzy gloves for $3.00 - I'm buying them to use instead of gift bags since I tend to give gift cards as gifts.

They are "no purchase necessary" so you can just walk in and ask for them.

It really does vary per cashier. I asked a cashier and she let me pick 2.

Then my kids wanted them (they want to win a trip and to collect them all, lol). Next time we were nearby, I let them go to 2 counters. Both told them they needed an adult present. I went back with them. One cashier let us each chose one. At the next counter, one cashier said we could each take one but she was interrupted by another who said the kids could not take them because "the contest is 18 and over."

My suspicion is that people are going overboard asking for them, and they've started to manufacture "rules" because of it.

So far I've won two $5 and one $10 coupons but I'm most happy about having the buttons to decorate my DD

I went to the jewelry department and asked they gave me the 2 most horrible ones!
But then I went to the photo place because it was empty and I figured they would be more generous.
Well one of the two ladies that helped me was a scrapbooker! She let me took as many as I wanted!!!
I took 12!!!
Then I paid for my shoes at the front desk and they let me choose 2.
But I couldn't find the penguin . I want the penguin.

Most cashiers have handed me two. But the gal at the jewlery counter gave me a handful....and a handful to my 6 yr old....and a handful to my 16 yr old.....and a handful to her friend. Everyone who was with me gave me their buttons, except the 6 yr old. Now I'm just waiting til she "forgets" about them.....lol.

I've won over $100 in gift certificates, btw. Can you say underwear and socks in your stocking? lol

I'm up to $45 in savings certificates. Socks, underwear, slippers; my boys are going to be loaded up! They also have kitchen stuff, so I'm hoping to get a bigger win to buy myself a new coffemaker or something fun?

I haven't gotten a penguin yet. The variety is pretty impressive. I've only got a couple of doubles.

I agree, it really does depend on the cashier. I went in today and made a purchase in the men's department and was given 2, then after a purchase downstairs in women's was given 1 by a manager type. And because I'm a dork, I took a pic of the "tree" made out of the button images.

My jcp just had the bucket out. They didn't really care honestly. They let me dig in it. I let my 1 yr old grab a handful and I picked some that I liked. I got 10 between to registers.

I went for the first time and was given one. I didn't have time to walk to each register and get one. So I'm going to try again the next time I go shopping and have a bit more time. Consider yourself lucky if you were given more than one.

*******************************

Nope....lol. But I am surprised that I don't have more doubles than I do. I ended up with a pretty good variety. The one I am wanting is the green one with the pointing elf on it. I'm calling it the button with the "naughty elf" on it. My December Daily needs this button....lol.

So much for asking. I bought 2 things, and got one button.
I asked if I could have more cause I was going to scrap them, but she said " I can only give out 1" who usually follows the rules????

I don't think there is a penguin Everything I see says 50 different buttons. None of them are a penguin. I don't have very many duplicates either, thank goodness!

The penguin exists but is super rare (word is that it has the trips). DH has seen the penguin but didn't pick/get it I do think JCP has caught on to people having figured out the penguin. One store will no longer let you choose and up front tells you they have no penguins.

I was just going to post that it could be the big prizes winner! Because you see it in the store everywhere. But I could not find a photo of it in the web.

What you enter on the jcp web site is an alphanumeric CODE -- the words are the capture thingy to avoid robo posts. The code is in a WEE LITTLE white oval on the reverse of the button.
Enter your email address, the code, agree to the terms ... the emails for me have arrived very promptly (after the first day)

I just went today and made two different purchases. I was given 4 buttons at one checkout and 3 at the other. Entered two codes and won a $5 gift cert.! I have told friends I am collecting and they can have the codes.

I bought something there the other day and was given 2. One was an unattractive ornament and the other was jellied cranberry sauce out of the can. The can-shaped blob of jelly, ridges and all. Seriously?

I still say we should trade them the first of the year. Once you enter the codes you don't need the button. In fact, I have won and don't know which of the 2 was the winning button!

Check your junk mail.

There is a fruit cake ;P

I would like the gingerbread boy or any peppermints. The ones that look like OA are fun, too. I don't get to JCPenney very often but last time I went with the family and everyone got them and gave (Most) to me

seriously?? you're complaining about that?? They didn't put them out there for your scrapping enjoyment. Besides, some people might actually like them. As a matter of fact, my hubby picked out the cranberry sauce on purpose.

When I saw the turkey leg and cranberry sauce ones I got excited. They are two of my favorites. How often do you get Thanksgiving flair for scrapbooking?

Just to clear up about the flair I received (ornament and jellied cranberry sauce)... I know they weren't there for my scrapbooking enjoyment. I didn't go to JCP to get flair and I didn't ask for flair. I made a purchase at the store and when the clerk gave me my change and reciept, she gave me 2 flair buttons I was not expecting to receive. I understand that some people may like the ones I received and I certainly don't mean to offend anyone, but my thought was just that with so many images that could be printed on them the cranberry sauce was kind of goofy.

Did you guys see the square gift?

I love buttons. I went crazy at CKC with theirs. I got crazy with anywhere I can get a flair. I even have Waffle-house ones. So I'm planing to get me some more
But the Turkey leg and the cranberry sauce are not my favorites. I'm looking forward to wear them on Thanksgiving day next year just for a...

Maybe that was the point? to be a little silly, too. BTW - some people do have turkey for Christmas. Actually, it was probably rather traditional to do so? I would but I get voted down.

I won $10 on one and it said I'd receive it in 48 hours but it was more like 24. And Susie, I do have that one and will happily send it to you. I'll go out and look at them to see if there are any I want.
