Chatting about triples on the 12:30 news Thursday

Posted April 28, 2010

I'll be chatting about the crazy triples frenzy this week as well as register coupons on Thursday during the 12:30 news. Looking forward to seeing Bill's face when I show him the receipt from Lowes Foods triples! :-) Hope you can tune in...if you aren't too busy tripling at Harris Teeter!

    Thanks for the info HappyGirl! Can someone tell me if the HT in Wake Forest is "user friendly"? Wilson is easier for me to get to, especially before work - but boy they are not at all "user friendly". Faye was right about them!

    bParrish, yes, you can just buy one BOGO item and use a coupon on it. I do that all the time. Occasionally, if you have 2 coupons, you can use them both and buy 2 but that will depend on your store. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    Still new at this - can someone tell me for BOGO items - can you just buy one item for the BOGO price & still use a coupon?

    oopps posted on the wrong one.

    lol...I did my run...just hope I get my coupons today and there is some rice left...=) my total before sales and coupons was $36.77...drum roll please. j/k I paid $2.06. Best I have ever done. woohoo! 94% savings. I owe it all to Faye!

    I did go back for a meat run, no coupons tho. I could not pass up the Boston buts (won't let me use that) for .99. with dad's homemade bbq sauce, BBQ sandwhichs here I come! My mouth is watering already!

    ROFLMAO totalchaos - you're so funny!!

    And are you psychic too, here I sit, making yet ANOTHER list for round two as I have received coupons today that make it a necessity (yes, a necessity......can't pass up free can I???) to hit HT again tomorrow.

    Mercy, I'm gonna need a vacation after all these consecutive days of shopping!

    Although it was with GREAT pleasure my son popped in today and took three bags of goodies with him and loves it, as did my dear daughter too :)

    Can't tell you how that pleases me! They appreciate the goodies but they really appreciate the deals I make and brag to their friends about it.

    Looks like one young friend of my sons (in his 20's) seriously wants to learn how to do this and so it looks like I'll be his mentor/coach LOL I'm thrilled they want to learn!!!

    Now that was funny Total! "Step away from the triples..."! LOL

    And Nancy - you probably have many receipts similar to the one I am going to share!

  • t0tAlChA0s Apr 28, 2010

    Nancy, calm down...step away from the
    It's tomorrow she is gonna be on. 12:30 Thursday.
    ok, it time for you to

    Drat! I was out shopping (ya, I know, HT triples was calling to me) and missed it, is there a link online for a video of that newscast? If not tell them there should be!!! Demand equal time Faye ;)

    I'm glad I saw this post, although I, unfortunately, missed the Lowe's coupon frenzy. Everything else got in my way. :(
    I hope Lowe's does it again.
