    CountryGirl10 - My buy price for the cubes of facial tissue is around .80 or less after sale and coupons. For the rectangular boxes, which have more than the cubes, my buy price is $1 or less.

    CVS has a decent deal on Kleenex brand facial tissues this week that makes them .83 per box after CVS app only coupon and the coupon from the 2/7 SS insert. Plus, you get back $5 Extrabucks when you spend $20 on participating Kleenex, Scott and Viva products. Details are at the link below. I hope that helps:

    ThomasG -- ouch on the Amazon free shipping increase. I hope it doesn't mean they are going to increase the price of Prime membership too. Since we live so far out in the sticks, having Prime works well for us. We actually get quite a bit of what we buy from Amazon, even a few grocery items.

    HAPPYLEAPDAY2YOU is a KFR code from and is good for 29 points! It's good until February 29th.

  • CountryGirl10 Feb 22, 2016 mother in law goes through them. I'm trying to find a good deal/stock up deal on them. She likes the square or cube style boxes but different boxes have different quantity or number of Kleenex in them. Some boxes have might have 50 and another have 75 or more. When looking at the ads (at hone) how do you determine what is a good deal before you head to the store?

    Made a quick stop at Kroger in Garner on the way to work this morning and found a number of bread products marked down in the bread aisle including Kroger white bread loaves for .59, Kroger 100% whole wheat loaves for .79, various packages of Kroger rolls for .79 and .99 and Kroger donuts for .99. I picked up 2 bags of the whole wheat bread (1 going in to the freezer) and a bag of rolls.

    ThomasG - I just saw it yesterday and meant to blog about it. Thank you for the reminder!

    ascherer - some other stores will take Cats from different stores. You would have to check with your specific Kroger to see if they do. But you can use it at HT during Super Doubles and it will probably double! Cats usually double during HT super doubles (but not always). It does count as one of the 20 coupons doubles max.

    Did anyone notice Amazon has raised the free shipping to $49 from $35 ? I know many have PRIME but it did not pay for itself for us - so I did not renew it .

  • ascherer Feb 22, 2016

    Faye - it says between 2/22/2016 and 4/17/2016. It looks like HT may take it. Next questions, if I get the $2 off Catalina from HT can I use it anywhere or just HT? HT is not my regular grocery store. Kroger is.

  • ascherer Feb 22, 2016

    ThomasG - That really helps. I have coupons that are going to double for Dreamfields pasta during HT SD thus making them cents per box (normally $2.xx per box). If the buy x number get $x off receipt/coupon works at HT that will be awesome, if not oh well.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Feb 22, 2016

    Ascherer - According to the site I use for Catalina info, it is valid at HT from 2/22 - 4/17/16. I hope that help. :-)
