    jdouglas13 - Welcome back! Thank you for NOT bringing that horrid wind chill and all that snow with you. :-) Guess it is time for you to cut some coupons and get to HT! :-)

    Just wanted to say hi to everyone and thanks for all the good thoughts and wishes while I was away the past couple of weeks taking care of the folks. It really meant a lot, and help me get through a difficult time. I am officially back home now, and I left the snow and ice behind. I had forgotten how much fun it is to walk and drive on so much ice, especially with the 7 degree wind chill and 30 mph wind gusts!

    For anyone who is a fan of Bell & Evans chicken, Whole Foods has Bell & Evans whole fryers on sale this week for $1.99/lb. Now I know this is not cheap for chicken, but the flavor of this chicken is so outstanding, that DW and I have decided to splurge occasionally when they go on sale. I've also been holding onto a coupon from an old Groupon or Living Social deal which will make the price that much better.

    I was finally able to print out the coupon for the B1G1 free milk that was emailed to me. (I hate java!) Went to WalMart today and got the 2
    gallons. They each had a coupon for 1.00/1 Kelloggs cereal. I'll be taking those to HT on my next trip this week!

    Well poo, don't know what happened to my answer on the Food Lion and Kroger coupon policy :( What I found was Kroger accepts printable coupons with FREE products as part or all provided the stipulations of the coupon are met.
    Food Lion policy I found they said no. But apparently others are having success!

    I did not have a problem with a cherrios BOGO coupon at Food Lion recently . When it was scanned it took off $4 grocery ( did not name product ) so kiosh coupon for $2 off 2 came off as well !
    I have used some at Kroger no problem - most of the ones I use there are from Kroger , ads, magazines & /or mail .
    WalMart takes them if a value/price is on them or if it scans a price like the cherrios one did at Food Lion .

    Smolder - Food Lions coupon policy does not forbid printable BOGO coupons. It does forbid printable coupons for a free product. I have used IP BOGO coupons before at FL but your milaage will vary depending on the store manager. Your best bet is to ask when you get to the store. Here is the FL policy:

    Regarding Kroger - according to their coupon policy - they will take BOGO IPs. Here is the policy in case you want to print it out:

    Does Kroger or Food Lion accept printed buy one get one free coupons? I know HT doesn't.

    Faye, the manager told me it "might" be because all coupons and ECBs need to be scanned before the subtotal button is pressed but I don't always know my exact total so I'm not sure how many ecbs I can use until I know the total.
