    Oh..and the paper MQ doubles if it's .99 or less! when paired with a ZVR it's like TRIPLE coupons!! :)

  • Dstned2BMe Aug 31, 2011

    Yes Cuttinup, you can stack a paper MQ with a ZVR at Harris Teeter! Isn't that great??

  • AmandaP Aug 31, 2011

    Question---At HT, can you use both a ZVR and a coupon from the paper, like ones from Redplum or SmartSource?

    I got some funny looks when I went to HT today to get some last minute. My daughter wanted some gatorade since HT had them on sale. I remembered seeing a large display last week with $1 coupons on each pack but they were priced $6.99. I went through the display until I found 3 coupons and purchased 3 packs of gatorade at $3.99 each. My kids are like... "Mom, you will do anything for a coupon!" My response... "Do you want gatorade or don't you?" Also got the new Velveeta skillets to try. My ZVR took off the full price of $5 instead of the $2.50 sale price. With my $1 MQ, I made money.

    BJs (at least the one by Triangle Town Center) had an 8-pack of the 60/13Watt curly light bulbs for $11.99, but there was a $10 rebate taken right off at the register so the final cost was $1.99!!

    if you go to and sign up for their little club thingy. i got an email from them on thursday with two coupons in it. one was for a free appetizer and the other was for a free dessert. you have to purchase an entree for both coupons but they are definitely worth it!

    If you like Ciao Bella Gelato or sorbet, they have a $1.00/2 on their website. You can print it twice!! They are too expensive for me unless I get a great sale and coupon matched up. Hoping I can catch them on sale soon...Here's the link:

    Dstned2BMe - I saw the same thing a couple weeks ago at Kroger in FV - a stripped Sunday paper in the PRODUCE section no less, sitting next to a display of peaches.

    I informed the N&O about it when I talked to the Wake Distribution Mgr on the phone about a problem I had getting my papers one week - I begged her to see if she can't get the stores to keep them behind the counters with signs for customers to ask for the papers when they check out (drug and grocery stores).

    She had expressed the tremendous loss they're taking at the pay boxes too :(

    I hope the N&O does some serious sting operations at those boxes and prosecutes people, that's the ONLY way it will stop!

    This is not a deal to share, but I needed to vent. I have seen 2 very disturbing couponing incidents this week. On Sunday I went to HT in Fuquay and found 2 copies of the Sunday N&O on a shelf behind some groceries with the coupon sections pulled out and coupons torn out. On Monday in H.S. Walmart I found the same thing...Sunday copies of the N&O with the coupon inserts torn up. I can only imagine these papers were not paid for and the coupons were stolen. It concerns me that these things happen and makes me worry that companies will stop putting coupons in newspapers or that newspapers with discontinue carrying coupons or even that stores with not stock papers "on the shelf". If someone cannot afford a newspaper, all they need to do is attend one of the swaps and they will leave with more coupons than they could use!
