    Was in the Wilson Walmart today and they had corn 15 cents an ear and bananas 35 cents a pound.

    My printer is on best quality and I do print from your site and As you said, I do not think the bar code is crisp enough. I have trouble at cvs and Harris teeter reading/scanning my coupons. Maybe it's the paper but I use staples brand copy paper.

    vlynn - good tip on the Pinchme samples! Thank you!

    Just a reminder to everyone trying to get pinch me samples: make sure you log out and log back in a few times before accepting that you don't have samples! The first time, it said I didn't qualify for any, but after logging out and back in, I got 4! Make sure you check it at least twice before giving up!!!

    CountryGirl10 - We use inkjet paper to get crisp fonts and coupon codes since ink will "bleed" on regular copier paper. Inkjet papers have a special coating. On the other hand, B&W coupons printed on our other, laser printer, scan without issues.

    CountryGirl10 - what print quality setting do you have the printer on? If it is the most economical, the bar codes may not be crisp enough for the scanners to read. I have had no trouble with printed coupons scanning for quite some time. Are you having issues with coupons printed from and or are you printing from a less well-known coupon source? If ALL of your coupons from trusted coupon sources are not scanning, I would say it's your printer quality setting.

    My printed coupons will not scan at the stores. Anyone else have that problem? I use an iPad mini and a brother MFC-J6710DW printer. Thanks
