    Thanks !
    i am taking my elderly neighbor for her shot & some shopping tomorrow - THe CVS closest to her told her no the other day when she asked about the shopping pass ( she called them ) .I told her it was on the website but I wanted a confirmation who had been recently ( for my own peace of mind ). Thanks again for replying.

    busels2: Thanks for the Chem Dry info.

  • ncveteranswife Dec 12, 2013

    losltp: Yes, CVS will give you a 20% off shopping pass if you get a flu shot.

    ncveteranswife: We've used Chem Dry in Chapel Hill/Durham for carpets and were very pleased with outcome. Recently we used Stanley Steamer and were not as happy with the results.

    Thanks for the heads up on the MCR, scoutmom!! I just got my 2 as well.

    Good news about Aldi in Garner. :)

    Just a teeny brag -- I went to HT today and got $43.94 in groceries for $12.93! I was a very happy camper. Then I went to the dreaded Walmart and blew all my savings on butterscotch chips and candy. :p

    There's a Groupon deal out for a discounted BJ's membership. It's good in lots of areas, not just NC. Log into your groupon account and search for BJ's in the search box to see if this offer is available in your area. It give you a 1 year membership for $35 plus you get a $25 gift card, so it's like the membership is on $10. The groupon does say NEW members only, so I don't think you can use it to renew an existing membership.

    Update: Construction should start this spring on the new Aldi store in Garner and the store should open in late 2014!

    Faye - I just got my coupon in the mail, as well, for the free 12-pack from the recent MCR promo. Thanks, again, to the fellow SmartShopper blog member who sent me the final two points I needed to earn that reward!

    (I also got a free box of Hamburger Helper in my mailbox, also, the other day - it's been a good week for freebies!)

    I just ordered my second cat bed from them, which is on sale for $4.99, so will just end up paying the tax for it. :)
