It's fine to rephrase the information and then just include something like: "Thanks to for the info". We don't want to have copyright issues here on the blog because someone copied and pasted deals from another blogger.  Thanks for your help with this!

    shelleycole - call corporate HT tomorrow. That is absolutely ridiculous. Most coupon sites will let you print 2 of a coupon and they are both perfectly legit.

    I used 2 of the printable Mario coupons and 2 of the printable Finish coupons at the HT on Tryon and Walnut in Cary on Wednesday with no issues.

    The manager/CSM at the MLK store appears to need some coupon re-training. I would definitely let corporate know how badly they made you feel and how they accused you of making fraudulent copies.

    As far as Walmart....... they are consistent about NOT following the corporate coupon policy regarding printable coupons and giving overage for coupons that are more than the product. You can call the corporate customer service # but you may not get any resolution. I have heard too many stories about local Walmart stores and their unwillingness to take printables.

    ncveteran-I have never had this problem either. Yesterday was the first I had heard of it. The CSM was who rang me up today said they were telling him they couldn't take them if they have the same #. You are right, I think I am going to find another store. They used to be so nice there, but these two new CSMs are not coupon friendly.

    shelleycole: I've never had that problem at HT and I always print 2 coupons (the most I can print) and have used both at the same time. I would have left and went to another HT. I have used computer printed coupons at Walmart and never had a problem, but the item was not less than the product I was purchasing, so not sure what was happening here...Sounds like you had one heck of a day trying to save money, unfortunately...

    I went to HT on MLK Blvd yesterday and today and ran into the same ridiculous problem. I had two printed coupons for the mario olives yesterday and they wouldn't take it because the bar code #s were the same and today the two qs I printed for the .75 off a dr pepper and candy bar they wouldn't take those because they said the bar code #s were the same. I lost it a little today and told them they had lost there mind and I was tired of being treated like a theif in that store. I have never heard of this barcode # thing and couldn't find anything about it on the HT policy. Has anybody else run into this? They tried to tell me I had copied those coupons and that made me see red! I had a problem at walmart trying to use the poise 3.00q too. The manager there told me he didn't care what I had printed off the internet(referring to the q policy) he wasn't gving me 3.00 off a 2.97 product. He wouldn't even adjust it to 2.97. I'm so frustrated from this lately! Sorry Rant over!

    Thanks for the BP gas card "review" ! We may sign up just to have it but pur average fillup is under 10 gallons and is every 11 to 13 days so it appears the Lowes Foods gas rewards is a better deal for us at this time . Thanks again for your help !

    thanks for the swagbuck info I just signed up this week so most swagbuck "chat" here I passed right over before now.

    shelleycole - I was just able to print a coupon from the Smart Shopper coupons with no trouble. Are you using the link on the right side of the page that says "Click here to print your local coupons" with the picture of me? I just used that link with no problem.

    From yesterday's Share the Deals thread:

    "Can someone please help me...I just got a new prescription this week and I am trying to find someone who is offering a gift card for a new prescription?? ~ squiggs15"

    I had the same question this week, and have also previously done the HT pharmacy new customer offer.

    Here are the offers available at CVS/RA/Wags, each one requiring you being signed up for their ExtraBucks/Wellness/BalanceRewards program, respectively.

    At CVS, fill 10 prescriptions, earn $5 EB.

    At Rite Aid, earn 25 Wellness points per prescription filled.

    At Walgreens, earn 500 BR points per prescription filled.

    Check your e-mail for a CVS 30 percent off coupon! (Just a reminder, it's only good on non-sale/clearance merchandise, but if we can use coupons, am thinking we could still find a great deal, no?)
