    Harris Teeter rain checks do not expire

    Food Lion rain checks do not expire

    Lowes Foods and Kroger rain checks expire in 30 days

    Some individual stores will handle rain checks differently than the above. For instance, your Kroger or Lowes Foods may be willing to take an expired rain check. It can't hurt to ask!

    Love BJs -- I only go twice a month or so and only when I am already in the area for other errands since I live in Fuquay. The milk is always the cheapest around ($2.87ish), lunch meat, meat if I am in need of something specific & am out, snacks for the kids. I also think it is worth it just buying motrin there alone. We go through a big container every 6 months. The cost of that many pills at Walmart is ridiculous -- like $40 and only $13 at BJs. Also LOVE that you can stack coupons there.

    Lowe's rainchecks expire in 30 days, I have heard Harris Teeter never expire. I don't have a HT near me, so I don't know from experience, and not sure about Food Lion.

    If you get Food Lion emails there is a $5 off of $25 coupon that can be printed out. It expires next week Tuesday though.

    nakabi - I think it depends on where you live/work. I had a BJ's memmbership that I never used because we live near no BJ's store. I use Costco all the time because it is 5 min from my house. LOVE the fact that BJ's takes coupons but not practical if it takes too much time/gas to get me to the store. Sam's seems dirty and disorganized to me but I do not like Walmart either so just a personal preference
