    The orig. rainck. from CVS was for a sale price & no minimum was required on the orig. sale. There weren't any ECB bucks or a promo ongoing when I received the raincheck. I'll call the manager or CVS corporate. Thanks for your response.

    WOOHOOOOOO Way to go Ron!!!!!!!! Now you're hooked - lol - and you can't blame us :)

    I'm thrilled for you and what a bonus the manager gave you!!!!

    You totally scored Ron! Not so crabby now I bet! :-)

    losita - It depends on the raincheck you were using. If it was for a promo that was buy 3 get 1 free or buy 3 get a $2 ECB, then you have to buy 3. If it was just for a sale price and no minimum required on the original sale, I have never heard of what you described. You may want to call the store and ask to speak with the manager about it. The next time, you may want to ask to speak with the manager while you are in the store. If you already spoke to the manager and are not comfortable with the answer, you may want to call corporate.

    Went to my local H-T tonight and even surprised my self. Last thing my wife said to me as I was leaving was 'try and hold it at $100.00.' Bill was $157.99 and afer VIC savings, coupons and senior discount, my bill was $100.11. Told the asst. manager that I really liked this and he said 'what? Shopping?' I said no, couponing....He went to the office and came back with 4-$10.00 off $40.00 for the next month.

    Didn't someone say something about a catalina printing for the del monte veggies? I thought it was if you bought 10 something happened. I looked back and couldn't find it!!

    Hi, I had a rain check for CVS for the Scott paper towels from earlier this yr. Went into the CVS in Durham on MLK to use it, & the cashier told me that I had to buy a specified quantity (3) in order to get the price listed on the raincheck since they had an oversupply of stock. Does anyone know if this is CVS's rain check policy? At any rate I grabbed my CVS card & rain check & left the store since I've never heard any such thing. Thanks!

    katie-I was at Target today intending to do the Huggies slip on diapers deal, however they only had the big packs which were priced at $11+. Do Targets actually carry the jumbo packs? I didn't even see a tag on the shelf for them.

    Walmart takes so much energy to do that I am no longer cheerful about any savings. I always avoid them no matter what they have, life is too short to be unhappy.

    I can't post the link - but go to the Carmex facebook page for a .35 coupon - the lip balm is on BOGO (1.59) at Walgreens this week so only .45 each after sale and coupon!! :)
