    Thrift -- I agree about the bacon! :) And yes, we now have Smithfield, OM, and I thought a saw a Hormel something coupon, but I didn't get the details if it was for bacon or something else.

    HMurphy, ask for the customer retention department at the N&O and see if you can do better with them. Nicely mention that you might have to cancel if they can't honor their offer.

    Faye, can you provide a link to the Challenge coupon? I couldn't find it on their website. Thanks! :)

    luvstoQ - How did you get the N&O to honor the $1/week deal? I received that promo as well and called yesterday about my renewal and she wouldn't give me that price. Said I had to cancel and stay inactive for 60 days! Which wouldn't fly with couponing. She quoted me $77 for 52 weeks of Sunday only. My subscription is overdue for a renewal.

    jdouglas13 - Thanks for the Smithfield coupon info and suggestion of bacon....everything's better with bacon:) Looking forward to a sale since we now have smithfield & oscar mayer (I think it's om) coupons!

    jdouglas13 - the Challenge butter is an e-vic deal starting tomorrow and there is a .75/1 coupon on their website. Makes it $1.47 each! You can only print the coupon once.

    Thanks for posting the SB code earlier!

    Go to the main page of the blog to Printable Coupons (, enter zip code 77477, and you will find a $2 coupon for Smithfield pork - think bacon! There is also a coupon for Challenge butter for $0.55 that's worth printing if anyone needs butter this week. Pleeease don't clear the shelves of the butter at HT Clayton. Thank you. :)

    Raesmom, download the Cartwheel app on your phone, then I think you select the item you want, then you show the cashier the phone. Something like that. Clear as mud, right? LOL The cashier can probably help you from there.

    RAESMOM1612 - Save the the deal to your cartwheel (either online or on your phone). Then you pull up your cartwheel barcode and the cashier will scan it from your phone (or you can print it at home and take it to be scanned).
