    Has anyone had problems with Target limiting the number of the same item you can purchase? I went to the Target in Knightdale, NC today and an item had been marked down not one, but three times. I had 4 buy 2 get $1 off coupons and wanted to purchase 8. There was still at least 10 of the same item on clearance on the shelf. The cashier, assistant manager, and manager all said there is a 5 limit policy so other customers are allowed to purchase the item. I called corporate (before leaving the store) and they said there was no such policy. The assistant manager then pointed to a sign behind the customer service desk to the right, not visible at all. The sign said they have a right to limit the quantity, etc. I have never had this experience at a Target before. Plus, the bigger issue I have is the item is on clearance and has been marked down three times. Also, when I called corporate, I was told all they could do is document my complaint and was told no one would be calling me back.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes for my daughter! She had lots of fun today!

    Thanks to everyone who has posted about the Dollar Tree coupon policy. I'll have the actual policy posted in the morning. According to the policy, aeferrell, they will be accepting 2 internet coupons per transaction. Is your store not allowing internet printable coupons? The policy states this: "Only two (2) print-at-home Internet coupons may be redeemed per transaction."

    Happy birthday to your dad, Oxy! 70 years old - awesome!

    I got the $4 off $20 CVS coupon today in my e-mail! Love that one! My thanks to everyone who posted about it so I knew to check.

    So dollar tree will be starting to accept coupns on Sunday and from there on after.. I'm an employee so it is deff confirmed although they will not accept printed ones.. just ones from the paper. I know my DT sells oreda, maybelline, tonys pizza, of course the toothpaste and tooth brushes too. So just thought everyone should know :)

    Happy birthday to your kiddo, Faye. Today is also my Dad's birthday, he's 70. :D

    CVS has been emailing me, fairly regularly, 20-25% off nonsale item coupons. I think I've received 4 in the past 8 weeks. I can never seem to use them because the stuff I want is on sale.

    justinsmommu, it could be your $5 you earned from the Beauty Club purchases (all hair, skin care products you buy)? For every $50 (before coupons/ECB's) you get $5 ECB :) Usually if you scan your CVS card at the machine in the store, it comes out there too or you can find it online and load it to your CVS card :)

    I always forget about it until it shows up, always a treat!!

    Can I get some help from my fellow couponers? I need 16 more people to get the free coke from aisle50/Lowes through my referral link so I can get the $50 american express gift card. Here is my referral you will need to go through
