    busels, Go to Log into your account. Click on This Weeks Specials. Scroll down and click on View All Specials. Then click on a sale item to add to your online grocery list. Then click on Print (on the far right under Current Shopping List). It will bring up a page with that one item listed and below it you will see a list of all the digital coupons you have added to your VIC card. Hope that helps!

    Juanita - I received my calendar as well! It is filled with some great looking recipes. The blueberry lemon cream cheese coffee cake recipe looks soooo good!

    Faye, you helped me recently to figure out how to print my HT eVic coupons from the new format. I think that I must be remembering it wrong, because when I click on print, my browser quits on me. Would you mind giving me those directions again? Thanks.

    Re the N&O, sometimes a personal phone call to the guy at the top of the food chain help too. In this case, the VP of Circulation. His name and phone number is printed every day in the paper, usually on page 2 of the first section. I've used it for delivery problems and never had a problem again.

    wildfrenchrose - "Whoever posted yesterday about the Ken's salad dressing being on sale 2/$4 this week, thank you! I got the Isle50 deal, but after they accidently sent about three or four identical emails a few weeks back, they gave a $2 as an apology--so I got my deal for only $2 oop. Means I'll be able to get mine for only $.50/bottle!"

    Ahhhh! Thank you for clearing that up for me! I too got a $2 credit and couldn't figure it out, so yes, 50 cents a bottle was quite the deal, I thought perhaps I had earned a discount somehow through referrals or whatever LOL! Yup, it was a great deal and with them on sale made it super good :)

    I finally was able to talk to the N&O again after I was on hold for over an hour. Apparently the new rate is for my extra Sunday paper. My primary subscription is guaranteed to stay the same price until September. As far as the extra Sunday paper the prices have gone up and it is now $1.50 a week per extra paper. No promos or discounts allowed on that price per retention department. The lady said that all extra paper rates will go to $1.50 per paper/week as they come up for renewal so heads up everyone!

    Thanks to everyone for posting deals today!

    Sorry for your N&O frustration, pss. Have you tried speaking with the retention dept? Don't even try with customer service - it's usually not worth the time. BUT, you may have some luck if you speak with the retention dept. If not, you may have to cancel again and then wait a month and then get another subscription with the promo.

    Good deal at Walgreens for the Kreon micro changers that had a free coupon in Sunday's paper. They are buy 2 get one free and I had two coupons so I got three of them for free.

    I have determined that the N&O does not know their head from their tail. I cancelled my subscription in August when the renewal rate was three times what I had previously paid. Then at the end of September they gave me a call with a new rate that was within $5 of my old rate so I said yes. Today I just got a renewal notice with the triple rate again and I had to sit on hold for over 20 minutes to be told that my rate expires and there is nothing they can do and they can't give me the new subscriber rate that someone posted up here a day or two ago. Errrr.....
