    Jdouglas13 thank you! I really appreciate it.

    I think that is a great idea about the coupons for people with babies. I get the diaper coupons and would be more than happy to pass them on. I live in Goldsboro, so I never get to any swaps. If there is anyone that would like any of those type of coupons, I would be more than happy to pass them along. I remember how expensive things were, but they were nothing like they are today. I almost died when I saw how much formula and diapers are these days!

    triplettk, also when you are on EL, click on the list view rather than grid view -- I found it much easier to see sales prices that way.

    Faye, I'll hold that Boca coupon for you -- hope to see you soon!

    watchhillgirl, I will email you and get that coupon right off to you. I'm an ex-smoker, and know how hard it is to fight the quitting battle, so anything I can do to help! :)

    Lastly, I'm wondering if we should do a post one of these days for folks with babies and would like to get coupons? I know all that stuff is so expensive, and if I don't get to a swap, I feel so bad just tossing out those coupons!

    holly-you were told correctly I think. Like santran said, because there is no coverage at the CS, they do not do refunds, rainchecques, or anything like that between the hours of 10pm-7am.
    Thomas3255-like everyone else has said, it is the consumers responsibility to know the store policy on couponing. HT does NOT have to double or triple coupons, but they do. If you are so unhappy with them, feel free to shop at another store. As you can see, all of us on this blog love HT and none of us have an issue with them. HT saves my family and I probably thousands of dollars a year and I am grateful that they even have these SD/Triples events when they don't have to.

    Has anyone posted about PetSmart's Canapalooza game & sweepstakes? Similar to the Kroger game, you can play this one daily, and have the chance each time you play to win a coupon (that can be printed twice) for free cat food or dog food - you specify your preference when you register for the game. (I've already won three times!)

    For more info, just go to their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PetSmart), and click on the link for Canapalooza Game!

    thomas3255, I am sorry you have had issues with HT. I personally have had wonderful experiences with all of the HT that I have I have been in. I think once I had a manager that seemed a little grumpy, but once I smiled and joked with her, she lightened right up and was wonderful. It is amazing what a smile and kind word with do for someone having a bad day. You should really try it sometime, it really does work. As the old saying goes, you will attract more flies with honey than vinegar.
    Also, if you read the coupon, most will say if they will not double. Most of the HT that I have been to (again being nice to the cashier) they will override and double it. But that is up to them, and I NEVER argue. I am happy to have this wonderful opportunity to save money.

    Oh my, paintbananas! My cashier lowered the amount to the purchase price so mine were free, which I was certainly grateful for but your cashier was very generous!

    Thanks Juanita!! - my addy is Faye Prosser, PO Box 1688, Clayton, NC 27528 . Do you want my Pampers diaper coupons from last week? If so - e-mail your addy to me again.

    yes, I would love to get any nicorette coupons. my email is ktrfalls@gmail.com, and I will send you my address. Are there any coupons you would like? I am more than happy to share!

    Faye, can you give me your address again so that I can send you the boca coupons. I somehow ended up with 4, so I know you would love to have them!

    Love the Stayfree BOGO coupon at CVS this week. The BOGO sale and the BOGO coupon combined to give 2 free packs, plus my cashier rang up the BOGO coupon at its max value ($4.49) instead of the purchase price, so they paid me to take two packs. :)

    Has anyone else had problems getting the Kroger Promotion to work? I tried it Thurs. won $1.00 - haven't been able to get it to work since ;-{
