I do many shops for ACL and have never had a problem staying within the reimbursed amount. I guess it depends on the shops available in your area.
I am registered with acl and have completed shops with them but all I see now are the pizza shops.
So tonight I am making a boil in the bag Indian dinner. I find those to be almost as good as at the Indian restaurants. Unfortunately my favorite Indian food store has decided to double the price on the buy one get one free offer that is written on the box. I like the brand but do not buy them out of protest for the pricing at this store. And I can get a great Thai dinner for $8 around my house where there are multiple Thai restaurants on many blocks if I have time and interest on days between other dinner shops. I would love though to replace some of the meat and fish and potato shop places with foreign food.@SteveSoCal wrote:
