    Ascherer & Dr D
    YIPPEE you got the double refund !
    Thanks Dr D for the Aldi info -
    I believe that is true for Lowes Food/Just Save as well.
    I hate to spend good money on something and it turns out bad - I got a cucumber at Food Lion to day - when I cut it for supper salad it was sour but is it worth going back for 69 cents ?? Going to think about it overnight - sometimes it more the principle than the money ..

    Yay - good for you! I didn't know about Kroger's 200% guarantee, so I'll tuck that info away in case I ever need it. Thanks Observant - your name is a great fit! :-)

    Turns out Aldi has a similar guarantee. A few weeks ago I had a bunch of green bananas that refused to ripen, so I returned them to Aldi, and was surprised that they not only let me pick out a new bunch to replace them, but refunded the price I paid for the first bunch. Here's the link to their guarantee: https://www.aldi.us/en/new-to-aldi/double-guarantee/

    OBSERVANT - Thank you yet again. I had no problem getting a refund but he was processing just a basic refund. I pulled out the ad I picked up on the way in and showed him the 200% guarantee. He didn't even know about it but he did honor it. Thanks again.

    JDouglas, I transplanted here from the Midwest, so for me it's just a bad habit needing correction.

    jdouglas LOL that is hilarious bc it is so true!!! Im still learning myself how not to "participate" in the conversation LOLOLOLOL.

    DrD I thought your new name was DRD but I wasn't completely sure so I stuck with what I knew you as last year :) Glad I still have my memory (for now)

    OBSERVANT - I just pulled up the ad Kroger emails me. Sure enough it is there. I am glad you caught me also. After almost crying as I salvaged what I could from the strawberries and making my DH life miserable for a few hours, it helps but I will never get that time back. DH may get a steak as payback from it. I hate it when I snap at him for something that was not his fault.

    Dr D, are you also from NY? The reason I ask is it has taken me forever to break the habit of talking over people, although in NY it's not considered talking over -- it's more like participating in the conversation, and the better the conversation, the more talking over LOL.

    Glad I caught you in time !
    Good Luck

    I know a few of you were asking about the ht go for gold Visa cards. I received both of mine today. The envelope said thank you and had an alabama address.
