    I have had issues at Target as well but the cashier did overide them for me. It is almost as if their computers cannot tell that you bought the item. Frustrating, to say the least.

    I don't know heazer but it was a pain. Prints seemed dark and clear to me, but you know how these computers are. What irritated me most was the implication that I did not buy the product when it was clearly right's not like I had a cart full. Since they only let me use one coupon for like items I have one more pair (manufacturer and Target) that I would like to use, but I am dreading it again.

    LAXMom12-- Not sure why the coupons didn't go through, unless the ink was light or maybe the barcode was blurred a bit. Target employees have the ability to over-ride a coupon at the check-out. The cashier should have been able to accommodate your coupons and should not have required you to visit customer service after the fact.

    Rumored Super Doubles at HT the week of the 2@th. I'm using it as an excuse to organize my binder.

    Am I the only one that has difficulty for every Target coupon I use? I went today and had every product for every coupon and nothing scanned. The cashier handed them back to me and said "didn't buy this" each time. I pointed in the bag at each item -- I only had 5. I had to go to customer service and wait 10 minutes for the guy to read every coupon in detail and pull every item out of my bag. I had single items except for one where I had 2 items and 2 coupons. Seems there is some fine print about one coupon per guest, so I skipped that one, but the others should have worked. Is it always this difficult at Target?

    That's a good article, msgooch. We have been wondering what the opening of Publix near Charlotte would do to the grocery store mix. Guess we know now. It will be very interesting to see if Publix comes here to the Triangle. Corporate office of Publix won't give me any details at this time so we shall see.

    An interesting article re: Harris Teeter and Lowes. Out of our area, but something to consider, especially re: Publix. I dunno...I like reading these corporate strategy articles lol! :-)

    Just wanted everyone to know that I got the same deal on the Huggies Pull Ups at the Walmart in Cary (just got back). They still had some 3T/4T boys and maybe 1 girls. AWESOME deal. I might stop by the one in Fuquay on my way home...does anyone know if they have anymore (2T/3T?)?
