    Anyone else having trouble downloading the cvs ad and the cvs preview ad? I live in the country and have slower internet

    Vlynn, I agree. 3 years seems like a long wait for Ikea!

    Thanks everyone for your help yesterday with finding a good deal for my beloved Diet Coke! In addition to the deals everyone posted, I saw that Kroger has 6 pk bottles for $1.99 WYB 5, in case anyone prefers bottles. 😀

    I agree with Dr D as well. I had the same thing happen to me but it was at Food Lion. They gave me back the money for the coupon.

    ckp - I agree with DR D. That is exactly what I would do. Hopefully they will provide excellent customer service and not give you any grief. Let us know how they handle it.

    CKP - I'd take the toothpastes, receipt, and coupons to the CS desk at HT, and tell them you neglected to hand over the coupons to the cashier. They'll check your receipt, and then most likely just give you cash in exchange for the coupons. You're not the first person who's done so! :-)

    Ok, Harris Teeter question. I selected my 2 Cologate toothpastes, along with some other great buys and checked out. When i got home i noticed that i missed giving the cashier my toothpaste coupons. So, i paid $1.99 instead of getting them free. So, my question. Do i return them, get my money back and hope there are still some left on the shelf to 'purchase' with my coupons? Or go to customer service tell them my situation and they take my coupons/give me the money back? Making the toothpaste finally free. Your thoughts. Thanks.

    Apparently it's official now, Ikea is coming to Cary! Just saw it wral. Can't wait to see it, but 2020 seems so far away. Wonder if google fiber will arrive before then!
