    Dr D - such a good question and I am with BuckJJJ. I have not bought a B2G3F deal that qualified for savingstar before so am I am not totally sure, but your reasoning makes sense.

    GJan1 - sorry I wasn't there for you today! They asked me to change days last week so I will be on this Thursday at about 8:35 am. I should be back on Monday mornings the next week. Thanks so much for tuning in!

    Thanks BUCKJJJ - yes, it makes sense that the credit would only be for the ones paid for, since the HT receipt usually shows the free ones as $0.00 or something similar (I'm not near my receipt to look).

    Dr D - my saving star credit for the Ken's dressing credited today (I purchased them on 4/30/16) but I purchased 10 to make sure to reach the $3. I am not sure how much credited but I was thinking just the 2 we actually paid for would credit. Hopefully yours will credit soon.

    Looked for you on TV this morning before leaving Holly Springs. When will you air Thursday? I might be back in area this week.

    Anyone know how a Buy 2 Get 3 Free offer will credit for SavingStar's one or many offers? Last week Ken's salad dressings were B2G3F at HT, and I'm wondering how much that purchase will credit towards the SavingStar offer of $3 When You Spend $12 on Ken's Salad dressings. This SavingStar offer expires 6/1, so it's possible the credit from HT won't show up until around the expiration time.

    jdouglas13 - I did not! That happens again on Thursday. :-)

    trichardson0621 - thanks for the additional details on the FL freebie. That was nice of them.

    Faye, I hope that means you didn't have to do your Monday a.m. commute at o'dark thirty this morning!

    Trichardson, great deal from FL!

    trichardson0621 - that's awesome! Thanks for the heads up. I did not get an e-mail from them. When did yours arrive in your inbox? Was it this morning?

    I had an email from Food Lion and it gave me a free Taco Kit and Reynolds Alum foil. I hope this is for real. It allowed me to automatically load to my card. Anyone else get something similar?
