    Thanks, everyone, for the replies about the Kroger sale continuing. I need to have a game plan with contingencies before I go!

    I picked up a small Kroger "Mix & Match Buy 10, Save $5" list separate from the weekly ad available with the weekly ad. I plan to go back to Kroger and wanted to better plan, etc. the trip.

    The list indicated "Offer valid 11/5/14 - 11/18/14". Hefty slider bags, trash bags and Carnation are listed.

    Thanks for this! I've discovered I love beets now as well, which is amazing because I definitely did NOT like them as a child. None of my siblings did either although Mom continued to serve them, because of course she knew they were good for us.

    Their website says that Whole Foods, Earth Fare, and one of the SuperTargets in Durham carry them in addition to the Food Lion stores. None of these are places I shop regularly, so hopefully I'll remember to look for the Love Beets when I do visit any of these stores.

    SDOSS1, I went to Kroger on Sunday and it was crazy in there. Anyway I was going after the Hefty bags and all but one box of the freezer bags were out! I asked customer service when a truck would come in and she indicated that the Mega sale would keep going for the next couple of weeks until Thanksgiving. Some items would be added and some would drop off each week. I did go back Monday and they did have the Hefty freezer bags in stock. This was in Fuquay.

    At Kroger
    Many of the shelf tags on the Mega deal items have an expiration date of November 18th.
    I did not look at ALL of the item tags - only the ones I was purchasing .

    Here's a $1 off coupon for Love Beets! They said they were at my local FL, but I can't find them (nor did the produce guy know of them) Has anyone seen them at theirs? I'm a serious beet lover now... odd, I know, but they are SO good for you!

    Does the Kroger Mega deal extend into this coming week (11/12-11/18)? Does anyone know if it has the same deals (i.e. hefty, carnation, etc)?

    Faye, That HT used to be my favorite to go to. Not anymore. I have had several unpleasant experiences there in the past month. I am pretty sure that management dictated this to their employees at that store. I only went to that Harris Teeter because it was convenient. When I saw they actually had the butter, I got it. I plan on staying away from that HT as much as possible in the future.

    TJ84 re 3 coupons only at FV. Did you have a manager called over? The same thing has happened to me recently at two different HT's. In both cases, when the manager came over, they told the cashier that the limit was only for doubled coupons not all coupons. I think a lot of cashiers do not understand the coupon policy.

    TJ84 - it is always unfortunate when an employee does not understand the coupon policy at their own store. Did you speak with the manager? I would suggest calling the HT customer service 800 number to let them know about the experience and request that additional training be done with the store employees at that location regarding the coupon policy. You can also request that the store accept your 4th coupon when you come in next and apply it to your next transaction. Sorry they didn't know how to handle your coupon correctly. :-(
