    LAXMom12 - I actually had it on my calendar to blog about Black Friday deals today. lol When I saw the Target ad was released I knew it was perfect timing. Although I am not very impressed with their sale today (although the move price you got was good), their Black Friday ad looks more impressive. I just posted a link to a bunch of BF ads. Time for the fun to begin!

    smolder13 - thanks! I'll take a look at my account.

    I just found a Kroger digital coupon in my account for a free 16 oz Kroger brand salad dressing under the "best customer bonus" section on the left side list on the coupons page. Check your account to see if you have it, too!

    Faye - customer service like that keeps my business with them.

    Target just released 10 early access Black Friday deals available today only with free shipping for store pickup. I just ordered a 2-disc Lego movie for $9. Regularly $17.99.

    LAXMom12 - that is amazing that a year later they are contacting you again about the issue and providing a free product coupon! Very impressive!

    I just got a letter in the mail from Betty Crocker mentioning a call I made last year about the macadamia nuts in a cookie mix I bought smelling very old. They refunded my purchase then and sent me a free product coupon today saying they changed the product and nut supplier. I like when companies value the consumers and treat them so well. It pays to make a call.

    Great, thanks for the input! I tend to shop everywhere, but hit Walmart as often as any other chain. I don't have a smart phone, would be doing it through my computer. If it isn't requesting a lot of info, I guess there is no reason not to sign up.

    I join Observant & Faye in giving good rates to Walmart's Savings Catcher so far .
    In my small town it is one of the few places we have to shop .
    With my disabilities, I have to get others to drive me places . So I do as much of my regular shopping at Walmart as I can ; this savings program helps me "catch' sales I might have missed.
    Savings Catcher will match your savings for all "like" items it finds an advertised sale price for - some rebate programs only offer the deals on one purchase per week .

    little blue 2 - I second everything Observant posted about the Walmart Savings Catcher program. I process my receipts through my computer, not my phone. It's very easy. I don't often shop at Walmart, but whenever we do, I enter the # on the receipt asap so I can get the savings. I also price match at the register for the competitor sales I know about, but having the extra level of price match helps for those price match savings I don't get at the register. I have found that it is worth it if you shop at Walmart at all. I have $9 in my account right now and plan to cash it out for the WM gift card soon. And yes, it is only name brand items and produce. They do not match store brand prices from other stores.
