    Purchased 4 bottles of Heinz Ketchup and 2 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats w/Raspberry fruit in the middle at Lowes Foods. After sale and coupons only paid about $3.20 + tax. Ketchup was on e-offer for $1.48. Only two rang up for the sale price but the CS gave me money back on the other two since there was no label saying that there was a maximum purchase.

    smolder13, I guess what I was going to do won't work then. Back to the drawing board. I hope savingstar answers you.

    spalding-I was able to load coupons I was not interested in, which is why I started to look for a pattern as to what coupons wouldn't work.

    Has anyone else noticed on that you can "Like" some of the coupons on Facebook to increase their value? Faye, one of the coupons you can "Like" is your Morningstar Farms:) .80/1 doubled with a sale should be a great deal!

    smolder13 I hope Saving Star answers. I think I've decided when I go on their site to try and load an item that I'm not that interested in and see if it loads correctly and if it does then load the ones I really want. Also if the system seems really slow I'll get out and wait til a later time to load them.
    Hopefully this strategy will work and I remember to do it!

    I emailed Saving Star to see if they will answer me back about getting the "this coupon has already been loaded to your card" message. I was trying to figure out if I was having trouble with certain types of coupons (ones I had loaded last month, ones I use all the time, etc..) but there doesn't seem to be a pattern.

    Burger King posted printable PDF coupons on their website:

    Most McDonald's also accept competitor coupons now - the one in Holly Springs off 55 does - ask first or look for the red competitor coupon sign.

    I have noticed that if I load the Lowes digital coupons that SavingStar will then not let me load the same coupon - I get the message that is has already been laoded to my card. I haven't noticed it happening with Harris Teeter - Just Lowes. So I have been loading them to Saving Star first if I can remember!
