    Thank you Faye for this new site! It's a great help!
    And Wal-mart had cantelopes for 99 cents each.

  • stephlw Feb 23, 2012

    Faye -- LOVE THIS NEW LIST! :) This is going to be SUCH a time saver for me and I so appreciate you taking the time to do it. Just wanted to mention it again! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

    FYI -- In case anyone missed it from people who posted about it before -- At Rite Aid if you buy 4 of the colgate toothpaste ($3.50 +ups back) and 5 toothbrushes (99 cents after the $1.49 +Ups back) you will MAKE money when you are done! You will get $30+Ups back. You can do it in more than one transaction to keep rolling the +Ups as well. If you have coupons, you make even more! If you don't need the products -- great donation items!! Something to consider. Plus you can use the +Ups to buy things you need at HT!

    Thanks, what a great idea! I don't use coupons anymore, so I just look for decent prices on meat and produce.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 23, 2012

    Thanks for the egg update bowb4me2 and ddalmas and opuntia!

  • bowb4me2 Feb 23, 2012

    That's correct about Aldi's egg price. It is $1.29/dz= large eggs.

  • opuntia Feb 23, 2012

    Got a dozen large eggs for $1.37 at Harris Teeter today.

  • msleep63 Feb 23, 2012

    ok thank you for the info Faye

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 23, 2012

    msleep - I think I used the Express Lane lookup for the HT at 401 and ten ten and it was listed there. I suggest you look at the Express lane online shopping portal for the HT stores around you to see which ones carry them. As you found out - they are not in all HT stores.

  • msleep63 Feb 23, 2012

    Hi Faye,

    Quick question, the Creta Hot dogs that you have listed on the Harris Teeter Website being BOGO what Harris Teeter can you buy them at? I was at the one at Stonehenge and looked in the regular hot dog section and vegitarian section, could not find checked with front desk and they say their store does not carry these. I would love to try them.

  • blstarlin Feb 23, 2012

    At the Lowe's at 42/50 there is also a peelie coupon by the Sara Lee bread- "buy 1 Sara Lee loaf of bread get $1 off a gallon of milk" so it makes the milk at Lowes $1.88
