    Just read this article on Yahoo & thought it was very interesting. Thought of those that pick up coupons from recycling bins.

    lmcgee - usually the printable are good from one month out from the date you print them. In other words, print them today and they would expire 2/10/12. That is the general rule of thumb for most printables.

    Some are shorter, some are longer but mostly expire 30 days from print.

    I have a question and hopefully someone here can help me. When you get an email from coupons.com or grocerycart.com, how long are those coupons usually good for? Are they good until the end of that month or longer? I have several emails saved from December (I work retail and got behind) but don't want to spend a lot of time printing out coupons that are going to be out of date. Thanks for any answers.

    Rite Aid has all their Christmas items 75% off now. The really great deal that I found was the Planters Peanuts gift pack of 3 cans that rang up for $2.49. I bought the 2 they had but other stores may have them too. Also, the Hershey's kisses were $.99 a bag. I'll save the red & silver colored ones for V-Day.

    Here is the link for the Kelloggs gas card promo:
    I did this during the last rewards promo and they sent me Discover cards which can be used anywhere Discover is accepted! Plus when I was at HT yesterday I bought 3 boxes of Kelloggs Granola from the clearance rack for 2.87/ea (normally 4.60 and rarely on sale) and used a $1/3 coupon which doubled! Now I have the UPCs for this promo!

    herinraleigh & hollyh515 - looks like Faye answered the question under the Harris Teeter Deal post. That you would have to get 10 to get the promo and use the coupon. She states it is on HT coupon policy. Unlike BOGO... thanks for asking becuase I was wondering the same.

    Thanks for the Kellogg's info. I had a few UPCs leftover from the last rebate so I am glad I didn't toss them.

  • hollyh515 Jan 11, 2012

    hereinraleigh-- I have used the coupons before when I purchased the requirements for the coupons, even if some of the items were through a promo. I think you would just have to buy 5 (since they are Buy 2 get 3 free), not 10 of them! Hope this helps. Let me know if it is something different.

    Thanks ladies! I feel much better about it now. Just wanted to be sure there wasn't some kind of "catch" that I didn't see but would have a headache over later.
