    I don't see a box for the option to add the missed paper to the end of your subscription... I only see an option to either donate the paper, receive it when you return, or get the electronic version.

    Hollyh515, if you get more than one copy, you have to put in a hold order for each copy. I would call them to make sure this is done properly. I found out the hard way in December, and it took 6 weeks for them to figure out again that I got two papers!

    hollyh515 - I forgot to add that I've never had a problem either.

    hollyh515 - I usually do the hold on line & I just check the box for them to add it to the end of my subscription.

    Has anyone had any problems when you notify news and observer to hold the newspaper for the weekend? I am anticipating with easter that there may not be inserts and wonder how difficult it is to put the paper on hold for a week.

    The other change I noticed at HT a week ago was when I got a rain check for a BOGO item, they would not write it as BOGO, but divided the price in half and wrote it for that fixed price. I think we are going to see more changes.

    Also stopped at HT... bought 2 Frank's Hot Sauces and 2 dozen eggs...paid a whopping .04 for all of it. Surprised me as all 4 coupons doubles (2 were overrides when they wouldn't scan)which I was not expecting. There are .75 coupons on the eggs that are on sale for .99 when you also buy the hot sauce; I had .75 coupons for those.

    Stopped at Food Lion (1010 and 401)to do the yogurt deal this evening. I bought 20 and had two of the 1.00 off 10 coupons but was only allowed to use one because of the wording on the coupon. Still a good deal - 1.23 for 20 yogurts + the 2.00 kiosk Q. I used that to help by the 8 lbs. bag of oranges for 3.99. So 20 yogurts and 8 lbs of oranges for $3.00 + tax. I am happy with that. Will go back and use my other coupon to buy 10 more since they are on sale this coming week.
