    I would wait until 4th of July sales for the charcoal. Or at least wait to stock up then.

    Walmart had twin 15 lb bags of Kingford for around 5.50 during Memorial Day. I believe Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement has had similar deals in the past couple of months.

    There's a $2/1 Food Lion store coupon on Kingsford in a recipe booklet/magazine at Food Lion stores. The magazine is free with a $35 purchase. You can combine it with a manufacturer coupon for a good deal. I got a $2/1 coupon from about a month ago back promoting the Mesquite and Hickory "flavored" charcoals. I believe it may be gone now though.

    Meredith - you may want to read the Drug Store Rewards article here on this blog for an explanation of +UPs. The link can be found on the home page of the Smart Shopper blog on the right side of the page in the Smart Shopper Resources list. Here is the direct link. It should clear things up for you a little more.

    computer trainer - if they are Target store coupons, the answer is no. If it is a $$ off your total coupon (like $5 off a $20 purchase) HT may take it. Not all HT's consider Target to be a competitor. If it is a coupon for a specific item, (like $1 off Bounty), they will not take it. Their policy is that they won't take competitor's coupons for a specific item. Hope that helps. :-)

    I hope you had a good time at the swap!

    We have a question from the Knightdale Coupon Swap. We had some booklets from Target at our Swap tonight and we are wondering if HT would take those coupons?

    I posted a question under the Rite Aid deals page yesterday afternoon and no one has answered... can someone who shops at Rite Aid please go read my question and answer it so I can take advantage of some of the deals this week :)

    I got the same response from P&G.

    Just a followup to those who received the expired P&G dental coupons this past weekend. I got an email back from P&G saying they were sorry and sending some replacement coupons in the mail. So, if you haven't emailed them yet, I would do so.

    I didn't think you were complaining at all, happygirl and I totally agree about how amazing some of the vote totals were. :-)

  • HappyGirl08 Jun 12, 2012

    Oh, I'm not complaining about lack of votes. Just marveling at how many some folks were able to get. I appreciate all my votes. :-)

    katie - if you are overcharged at LF, you go to customer service, show the receipt and you will get the full amount you paif for the first one back and you keep the item, making it free. If you bought more than one of that item,. the first is free and additional are refunded the difference of the overpayment.

    HappyGirl - I gave you all the votes I had. Some of those folks had a crazy amount of votes though! I'm sorry you didn't win - next time!
