When posting about deals you have read on other blogs: Please don't copy and paste work from other people's coupon blogs directly on to this blog. It's fine to rephrase the information and then just include something like: "Thanks to xyz.com 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!

    Any thoughts on when we might get the next HT SD? I need a good sale on some stuff, especially on chuck roasts even though I know I won't have a coupon for it.

    Target still has the great sale of 4 refrigerator 12-packs of soda (Coca-Cola products) for $11.00 (which breaks down to just $2.75 for each refrigerator pack!). They've also got the 2-liters on sale 3 for $4.00.

    Food Lion has a good deal on Pepsi through Tuesday: FL: Pepsi products, 12 pack cans, 3 for $9 and get a 6-pack Diet Pepsi free with in-store kiosk coupon = $2.25 per pack after coupon

    Kroger has a good deal on their brand through tomorrow (Saturday) Kroger: Big K soft drink, 4 for $9 ($2.25 each) – must buy 4 at same time

    Lowes has a deal on their brand through Tuesday: LF: Pizzazz soda, 12 pack cans, $2.50

    Both CVS and Walgreens will have Coke 12 packs on sale 3 for $10 starting Sunday. That's not a good deal. My buy price for soda is $2.50 or less for a 12 pack.

    Maybe Rite Aid and Kroger will have better deals.

    Too bad you can't use 2 ltrs. They are cheaper and on sale at Walgreens starting Sunday for $1 for various sodas.

    Hope that helps!

    losltp - I use my insurance when I do prescription transfers with my monthly script and they still give me the gift card even though I only pay a $10 co-pay. There are exclusions for many of these promos through. Most will not give out the gift card for government paid insurance. If you have private insurance or ins. through your work, you will probably qualify. Just be sure to ask when you call in for the transfer.

    Thanks for the info on the free pain, chichimama and meredith!

    I found the same coupon for a free 8 oz can of Valspar in May's issue of Real Simple!

    I signed up for the free Better Homes and Gardens magazine a couple months back when Faye posted it. I just got my first issue in the mail and between page 32 and 33 there is a coupon for a Free 8 oz can of Valspar paint from their spring colors. I got the free can off Facebook a few weeks back but now I can get another one :)

    Questions about prescription deals

    DO the various pharmacies allow you to use your insurance plan for the presciptions and get the "deal" ?? I have one precription that is almost $500 every three months ( insurance pays all but $20 ) and I would like to get the "free groceries" .
    Thanks !

    I could use everyone's help. I need to buy canned soft drinks next week for my daughter's nursing graduation party scheduled for next Saturday. I'd appreciate it if everyone would let me know if they see any drinks on sale. Thank you so much!
