    Prisskat that is charity! Good for you.

    @jdouglas13, Thank you. Yes I do that for sure. I'm still waiting on 2 of those coupons to arrive from some time when they were "on sale" for less points. Hopefully they'll show up eventually. I do love a free 12 pack! I put cans in my lunch for work so it is great when I can get them for free.

    @careless... well I guess I shouldn't say charity. I make up grocery bags of extra items that I have multiples of and give them to some people that I know are in need.

    Thanks to those of you who tried to help me with Kroger's P&G $4.00 Coupon. Later this evening I tried it again and the page DID pop up for the 4 e-mail addresses, then it added the $4 to my card - Yippee! Meanwhile, I had called the Kroger "online Q" ph.# and they said they were having trouble with the site - asked for my card# and put the $4 on it for buying the 4 P&G products, so looks like I got both ;-}

    Food Lion (on Broad Street in Fuquay) has My Essentials Spiral Sliced ham for $.99/lb! They had about 20 in the cooler when I was there at 8:30pm.

    Faye or anyone -- what is a good price for ground beef 93/7?

    Thanks Nanny113 :) @HappyGirl -- do you enter your Coke/Diet Coke codes onto It takes quite a while to accumulate, but for 250 points, they can send you a coupon for a free 12 pack. I think I may have also seen coupons at

    If your store is having issues with the new GS1 barcoded coupons, it seems to help (sometimes) if the cashier uses the hand held scanner to scan the coupon vs running it over the table scanner.

    It's going to present problems, but at least I know at my HT's I shop in, they will override and credit a valid coupon that will not scan. Whether it's an IP or an insert coupon that won't scan - they'll make sure I get credit.

    savesavesave....I believe you are correct. I complained to Lowes corporate customer service. They called me back and said that the new code that was using was not entered in their database. They told me they were working on the problem and that someone from my local store would contact me when I could come in and make my purchase. It's been several hours and I'm still waiting.....
