    I looked in the price book for 2016 but didn't see trash bags. What is the stock up price?

    I read something about a HT SD event at the end of February as well. Hopefully there will be some good deals with stuff I use. :)

    Faye, I'm actually not going to miss Snap that much. Of the 4 coupon apps I use it's the one I use the least. There are so few products on it and they're almost never ones we'll use. However I am glad that since I have less than a $20 balance that they are going to give Groupon bucks and my time and effort spent on the app aren't wasted :-)

    Super Doubles rumor: My sources tell me that we will probably have another HT super doubles event from 2/24 - 3/1! Time to get clipping! We'll have it confirmed as soon as possible.

    An Email I got from Groupon Snap today:

    Great news! Starting on March 1, 2016, Snap will be expanding to include Groupon's inventory of nearly 70,000 digital offers at top retailers in the United States and Canada. With this update, Snap will be transitioning from product-specific to retailer-specific promotions.

    Since these new promotions allow for easy redemption and instant savings, we will be sunsetting Snap’s cash back feature.

    What does this mean for my existing Snap balance?

    If you have a balance of $20 or more, you can still request your check. If your balance is less than $20 on March 1, per the terms of the Cash-Back Program, you’re not entitled to request a check, but we will be giving you promotional Groupon Bucks in an amount equivalent to your Snap balance rounded up to the nearest $5. Those Groupon Bucks will expire on September 1, 2016, so spend them soon.

    FLYINGTURTLES2, regarding Krogers, not sure where you live, but I have been pleasantly surprised at the improvement in the Raleigh northside stores the last few months.

    Like you, in the past have done very little shopping there, but have started getting some very good grocery deals, and their produce department is starting to 'look' and be a lot better. They still could use improvements, granted.

    Not an HT, LOL, but still a place I have started to supplement my shopping! :-)
    There are no Publix close to Raleigh north unfortunately (too many NIMBY).
