    Thanks Nancy - I already have one.

    The 40/42 Food Lion had the $1/2 Ronzoni coupons right there on the shelf in a red blinkie machine making them .50/box for the spagh and mac varieties. Great deal! I bought some for the food drive at the WRAL class on Saturday.

  • Nancy Oct 4, 2010

    Don't forget to look for the Ronzoni refund $3 on 6 boxes purchased in a single transaction.

    I still have a couple of the forms - Faye, do you need one? Let me know and it's yours!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 4, 2010

    msleep - there is a link to click on the front page of the smart shopper blog with couponing abbreviations. Here is the direct link to the abbreviations page:

    RR = Register Rewards, the Walgreens instant rebate rewards

    VV = Video Values, which are printable store couons from the Rite Aid website that you can print after watching short videos

    ECB = Extra Care Bucks, the CVS instant rebate rewards

    MQ = Manufacturer's coupon

    It is also worth your while to read the document on drug store reward programs on the front page of the blog as well.

    Hope that helps! :-)

    Hi Faye first of all thank you for all your coupons freebies and heads up on all the great deals. I do have one question though. Could you please explain your codes on the drug store specials. Such as RR, VV, ECB,and MQ. And are these savings something that are available at the time of purchase or do you accumulate over time. Thanks for you help and I hope you are having a wonderful Monday:)

    Great find, ssgspoon! Thanks so much for sharing! I was planning a FL run tomorrow so I will add the pasta to the list. :-)

  • ssgspoon Oct 3, 2010

    Free Past at Food Lion

    Great $1 Ronzoni pasta coupon to use at FL - the garden variety is 5 for $5 - Free pasta. Additionaly, regular and quick cook Ronzoni pasta is BOGO and there was a blinky for $1/2 - this made macaroni and spagetti $.06 each (no limit). Looks like a trip to the food bank - I couldn't help myself. I got a cart full and used a buncy of blinkys, the coupons in today's paper and my $2 OYNO (from the glade deal) and paid a total of $.57.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 3, 2010

    Thanks Marbec, Thanks for the Nabisco and Werthers deals!

    No, we did not get the Nivea coupon that other papers received. Hopefully you were able to print out the $2/2 coupon before it ran out of prints. I picked up 4 free ones today with the printable and All You coupons. Can't have too much lip care stuff with winter on the horizon.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 3, 2010

    BIG 75% summer/miscellaneous clearance at CVS! - 75% off summer snacks (ice pops, sour gummies, goldish, cheese puffs, etc), lots of furniture items liek ottoman, desh chair, side table, Lexmark printer 75% off for $15, tableclothes, digh towels, plastic and glass tumblers and plates, sponges, and more. I bought a number of items for 25 cents (regularly $1). Found the clearance at both the Cary (tryon and walnut) and the 40/42 stores.

    Plus, I received a coupons from the coupon kiosk for $5 off any Halloween costume, decor or accessory (not candy). It's good an any purchase for up to $5! Sooo - $5 in free Halloween stuff. We bought fake nails for my daughters costume....for free!

  • marbec Oct 3, 2010

    I didn't see the Nivea coupon in this morning's paper. Did anyone else see it? Also for Walgreens, pkg. Nabisco cookies 0.99 ea. coupon ($1/2) in last week's smartsouce makes the cookies 0.49 each. Look also for werther's coupon in this morning's paper $1/2, BOGO ($2.29 for 2)at Walgreens.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 3, 2010

    I went through our coupons 2x this morning and it looks liek there was NO $4 Schick Hydro coupon in our paper. :-( Looks like you will have to find it through a coupon clipping service or ebay if you want this one.
