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!

    no problem Faye, I'm excited because often times I find a coupon for .50 off your next issue which hopefully should double at HT making it cheaper than walmart YAY

    This has probably been dealt with previously, but I need help in printing coupons from Kellogg's and Redplum. My mac is 10.5.8 and I have updated my Java. I have emailed Redplum and Kellogg's and have not gotten satisfactory answers. However, they still send me offers. Has anyone solved this problem? Thanks in advance.

    FYI - if you were planning to do the free Moe's burrito deal, their site has crashed and it's not working now. They are trying to figure out a fix and a way to make it up to fans.

    Also, thanks to Faye's mention last week, checked my Harris Teeter coupons on my account for my 2 free items. I got Toaster Strudel and FiberOne chewy bars for free. (Donated bars to food shuttle bin).
    Total retail price of these items at HT was 7 bucks. Thanks Faye!!
    PS must save coupons to your account...make sure that discount is generated or get manager, which I had to do. These free coupons expire 6/30-one time use only.

    CVS last night: (I have their free rewards card). Used 2 dollar off makeup coupon printed on previous receipt (offset CVS price vs buying at Walmart for same purchase). Looking at makeup selection, saw sign for 7 dollars in CVS rewards dollars w purchase of Physicians Formula makeup. So,,,I paid for makeup and turned right around and used my rewards dollars.
    So for 11.50 I got:
    Physicians Formula bronzing makeup (11.25 w coupon)
    FREE: 2 Starbucks drinks, small pack of gum (.25 w tax)

    Moolasavingmom.com has a reset version of $1 pork coupon which I'm hoping to double at Lowes this week, maybe on some bacon.

    wildfrenchtose - HT and LF are not supposed to take a FL coupon for a specific item. They are only supposed to take a coupon for a total off a total order according to their policies. No stores will double competitors coupons (unless they are manufacturer's catalinas which sometimes double like the register rewards from walgreens). And none are supposed to take printable comp. coupons.

    happy, there is not a set schedule for every store as to when they mark down meat. I have been told by some butchers that they often mark down on Monday mornings when they have a lot left over from the weekend. I have also experienced markdowns many times on the day after a sale ends and they still have too much of the product on the shelf. For instance, my local Lowes Foods had a bunch of the boneless skinless chicken breast left last week after the sale ended. Someone on the blog here posted that it was marked down to $1.49/lb - an excellent price. So I went to the store and bough 15 lbs! lol
