    Great deal on Mardi Gras 250 count napkins at HT for 1.99 (the express shopping says sale ends 3/20--if it continues, will be completely free on trips)

    I have a new ZVR for 55 cents off one pack of Mardi Gras and pair it with the 55 cent q from newspaper= 34 cents for 250 napkins pretty good deal.

    Great deal at HT on McCormick perfect pinch seasoning. There is a 50 cents evic coupon off 2. Combine this with the coupon for 75 cents off each, and they are currently B1G1 free and $3.49 for one, it makes these a money maker! If you don't like a lot of seasoning for steak, chicken, etc they do have italian seasoning as one of the options!

    If there were no coupons in the N&O I could surely live w/o it totally. I have heard that circulation was way down and the sales were boosted by the renewed interest in coupons. They seem to have the "old attitude", that coupons are an afterthought when they need to recognize that coupons have probably saved the paper.

    Thanks Nancy - I forgot you had mentioned her in the past. I just left her a message. We'll see what she says.

    Faye, please call Sherry Thomas at the N&O - she's the Wake County Home Delivery Manager - if she can't help you, she should be able to direct you to someone who can!

    They ARE responsible for the inserts - the fact that they list the coupon savings on the front page tells you they should be there, especially prepaid delivery papers.

    Her number is 836-5954

    love2save - I was actually missing the Smartsource insert this morning! Grrrr. I called circulation and they said they would put a call into the delivery person but she doubted they had any extra coupons. I asked for a refund of this weeks paper and made it clear that the only reason I buy the N&O is for the coupons and she said they would not issue a refund for inserts since they are not responsible for the contents of the inserts. Grrrr again. At least I got a Smartsource in the Wall Street Journal yesterday......

    Haven't checked my paper yet, love2save. Call the N&O to report it and ask for another paper.

    FYI - I'll have Kroger match-ups done when we return from religious school this afternoon. Have a good morning everyone!

    Anyone else just get smart source inserts? I got two in my paper.

    Check your HT ZVR's...some new ones have loaded, some have good potential to pair up w/ triples event on wed (mardi gras napkins, McCormick perfect pinch spices, etc)

    I also have had horrible experiences at that Kroger location. I had a manager yell at me about the coupon policy and also tell me that she was not speaking to me when she was trying to figure out the coupons. The cashier kept apologizing to me. I have not shopped there since. I used to go there because it was close to my daughter's school. I rarely shop kroger now becuase they are all about a 25 minute drive. I emailed corporate and never heard back. I also have a co-worked who will not shop there because of similar experiences.
