Found a deal today? Here's the place to share it!

Have a question that doesn't fit into any of the other threads? Here's the place to ask it!

I have a request for you all today. My hometown in Colorado is flooding because of incredible amounts of rain these last few days. The downtown is literally under a few feet of water and the water continues to rise. Friends are losing homes and businesses and the main roads to the mountain town are not passable. Please keep them in your thoughts.

    I stopped by HT on 15-501. They had the Swiffer Wetjet starter kits marked down to $11.29. However, when I asked them to check the price it came to $16.xx. I walked all through the store looking for the lady that told me about the deal so that she could verify the price. At any rate, we both we able to get them for $1.29! We used the $5 man q and the $5 ZVR....

    chesirekat1964 - so good to hear that Fred is doing well after the surgery, Kathy. I will continue to keep you all in my thoughts for good test results. Sending cyber hugs to you!

    astamper - I hope you had a chance to grab some good deals at 75% off at the Cary Lowes Foods, before they got wiped out. There was a decent amount of stuff still left at around noon time yesterday, and I was even able to use several coupons, but I ran out of time (was on my lunch hour). When I stopped back on my way home, around 6:30, I couldn't believe the difference - word definitely must have got out about the 75% off, as there was hardly anything left. Guess that was their point, LOL...

    As if the Walgreens sale of Oberto Beef Jerky for just $2.99 wasn't great, I just found out that there's a BOGO coupon for them, as well, over at, making them just $1.50 each! Excellent price for beef jerky!

    The sale doesn't end until close of business tomorrow (Saturday), so there's still time to snag this great deal!

    The Lowes in Cary that is closing is wiped out. They could put everything left on one shelf. The cashier said they close at noon Saturday...but I wouldn't bother going.

    Thanks Faye I will pass that along to him, and he will probably be called to help those areas in need.

    Fred had his surgery and is doing well. We'll know if the cancer has spread any day now. He'll be home Tuesday or Wednesday.

    I know I posted this before when the peelie was just doubled... but found more refrigerated Buitoli pasta on sale w/.55 peelies today. Fantastic deal with the triples at HT.

    So I went to HT today during lunch and seemed to encounter a manager that did not seem to be coupon friendly. I purchased an item that rang up incorrectly and mentioned to the manager when she came over that the item rang up incorrectly. She voided the item and then charged me the correct price. I asked about the price scan guarantee and she said that was only applicable if I would have paid for my order then went to the customer service desk to get my money back. Has anyone else had this problem? I was trying to be nice and help her avoid having to correct it at the desk but was a little taken back by the way she acted. She finally gave me the item for free but was not really excited to do so.

    jrmassengill - glad you got both the SB and the candy today!

    I hope your son is safe. I imagine he will be sent to help in the communities hit so hard by this crazy weather. And please thank him from me for his service! For all we know, he could be helping my friends in the next few weeks.
