    Ooops - sorry about that gatlee - it's been on sale at Kroger for 3 weeks now. I'll add the store name above.

    thomasandjill - as nakabi said, Walmart will only price match same brand and it has to be the exact same size.

  • gatlee Apr 26, 2012

    Where is the old yeller on sale?
    TIA!

  • nakabi Apr 26, 2012

    thomasandjill-it has to be the same brand.

  • thomasandjill Apr 26, 2012

    Does walmart only match with brands? Like can i go price match HT bread at walmart?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Apr 26, 2012

    Thanks happygirl - is that for whole wheat as well? I am going to the Fuquay location in just a bit to do the shopping for the Southern Women's Show, but I am also doing the shopping for my family. You just can't beat those produce prices!

    Very true, mloy - glad you caught the incorrect price.

  • HappyGirl08 Apr 26, 2012

    If you are going to Aldi for produce and need bread; I really like their oven lovin bread and its typically .99 a loaf! The hotdog and hamburger buns are good and .99 a package as well. Sometimes HT, FL and kroger beat that price but not always.

  • mloy Apr 26, 2012

    I purchased the bacon at Lowe's. It rang up at $3.99. She looked as though she didn't believe me and called the manager. He changed it. Always be careful.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Apr 26, 2012

    Thanks, nakabi! :-)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Apr 26, 2012

    That's great, coupondiva! I am glad you have both - it is a fabulous deal!

    You are very welcome creationstation! It's good to know that the list is helpful.

  • nakabi Apr 26, 2012

    I agree with creationstation3-thank you Faye for all your hard work!
