    If you have a question about walmarts policy or feel they may have been incorrect, contact them online. I use the Clayton location and they gave me a hassle about price matching the Harris Teeter ad I brought in. I emailed them online and within 3 days the store assistant manager called me and assured me they would price match without the confusion again.

    southern by choice - was it a printable coupon? Many store including Lowes Foods wont take printable coupons that won't scan. If it was a coupon from the paper and it wouldn't scan, then that doesn't seem right. Did you ask to speak with the manager. There has been no corporate coupon policy change that I am aware of. Individual store will amend their policies at random sometimes.

    Southern ... My experience at Wal-Mart is that if a coupon does not scan move to another register. I have never had one that did not work after that. Some of there scanners must not be 100%. Same with HT.

    Ok, so I made the sweet spaghetti squash from the local dish on WRAL...however, it was not my "cup of tea" and my husband refused to try it :(, my question is this: since I cooked only 1/2 of the spaghetti squash, does anyone have any suggestions for the other 1/2, I hate for it to go to waste.

    Faye, Do you know anything about the new Walmart coupon policy? I was there this weekend and I had a coupon that would not scan so they said they could not accept it. Any help on this. Thanks

    Kiddza - Swagbucks is a program that allows you to earn points by using their search engine (instead of sites like Google) and by watching videos, taking surveys and more. You cash the points in for gift cards like CVS, Amazon, Starbucks or other things. I usually cash mine in for CVS gift cards or Amazon gc's. Read this info to get a better description:

    Thanks to the two people that mentioned Zaxby's repeat day in North Raleigh today. It was last week in Fuquay, so I assumed they were all on the same day. But my husband works in North Raleigh and he was able to take advantage of it there today!

    well that was easy. Thank you HT for an easy recall page!

    Faye, there's something going on with a recall on peanuts. I've gotten three phone calls today from HT regarding recalled products. I'll see if I can find something posted, but I wanted to let you know.

    OK> What is SWAG all about? Thanks!
