    heremeaj, Congrats. GF food is so expensive. Did you win this in a contest? Only thing I have gotten free GF is Udi's bread awhile back when they had super doubles.

    Faye, Just sent you an email with a picture of the INCREDIBLE box of FREE food from Van's Natural Foods. These are NOT sample sized but are 6 full size gluten free products. I think I liked them on FB and filled out a form to get coupons. This was such a generous and amazing box. Thank you Van's Natural Foods!!!!

    At Target: $5 gift card wyb 2 Advil Congestion or Allergy relief on sale for $4.94 each. If you use two $3/1 coupons from this Sunday's RP it will come out to about $4 OOP with a $5 gift card back. There is also an Advil cartwheel that will take off an additional 10% after coupons.

    Thanks, North Raleigh Dad. Like I posted yesterday when one of the other sites I'm registered with were out of their freebie offer by the time I found out about it - I wish they'd give the folk who are already registered with their sites a heads-up about when they're going to run these offers so we'd at least have a shot at them. I mean, that's one of the reasons we register with these sites in the first place isn't it? (That, and their coupons, of course!) LOL

    I love the "overripe" bananas they put out on their reduced price produce cart at HT as well - I just wish I could time it better so I could get them more frequently, LOL. (I put "overripe" in quotes, because many times, it's just the ripeness I prefer!) And the price for a whole bag can't be beat!

    Faye - I've received e-mail confirmation about that $5.00 McDonalds Arch Card from the My Coke Rewards site, so it looks like it went through okay (fingers crossed!) I was fortunate enough to get one of these last time they did this (then it was for a McDonald's Quarter Pounder, I think, for free - no points required.) I gave that one to a friend who really appreciated it.

    I have a question about the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare). Has anyone gotten results? I can find noone that has seen any pricing. My husband has until the end of the month to make any changes to his plan for next year, so I need to see if its worth it. I have tried myself, but evidently I am not myself, but I did marry and am still married to my husband (7) times. To say the least, they still have some bugs to work out.

    Juts received an e-mail from a reader with a free Redbox rental code:

    "Snag a FREE Redbox DVD Movie Rental when you enter code 9MXW2LPC at any Redbox location! Note that this must be used at Kiosk, and not on their website! Valid through November 7th."

    Thanks for the MyCokeRewards info, Diane! I got the card as well using the code ROO. I hope they honor the code and send these out.

    RFB - I love the produce markdowns at both HT and Lowes! I scored 4 lbs of ripe bananas for .25/lb today at the Clayton HT (they had tons of marked down bananas) so I plan to make banana walnut bread tonight. :-)

    If you're registered with My Coke Rewards, head over to NOW for the chance to pick up a $5.00 McDonald's Arch Card - no points needed! Just enter a code from a Coke product to snag this deal.

    (It's not working for everyone, but many - including myself - were able to get this deal by using the following code: ROO).
