    DR D, thanks for the Clorox deal reminder! I got mine today - 6 - 1/2gal jugs Clorox - 3 $1 on two coupons, $3 off at register - $6 for 6!! We use lots of Clorox - I'm a sanitizer nut, and hubby uses it diluted to wash down the outside of house for any hidden mildew.

    Thanks again, Faye! The outside/parking, etc. looks finished, but know there is lots that has to go on in the interior!

    DR D- same with mine, I got Smithfield bacon too for 1.97 each!

    Yet another example of great CS at HT: I had the offer for HT bacon, 12 - 16 oz, $1.97, limit 4, in my Friday e-mail, but there was none on the shelf when I shopped this weekend. They substituted Smithfield brand. :-)

    The team at Stonehenge H-T said Creedmoor H-T opening in August, but I'd be happy if it happened sooner. Was out of town for the Saturday-only BelVita freebie, but a manager was super-nice and gave me one, since I'm in their store multiple times each week. Great customer service at all H-Ts.

    luvstoQ - The new HT is not quite ready. There must be a lot more work to finish on the inside because it's not schedule to open until August 12. Here is the response from the HT FB page: "Thanks for your post. Our store at Millbrook is scheduled to open August 12, 2015 barring any unforeseen circumstances."

    Wow - Stephanie, that is very impressive customer service and a super deal on your Kindle! Well done with the price matching and credits.

    My 2 1/2 yr old Kindle Fire seems to be on its last legs, so May 21 I bought a new Fire HD 7 from Staples to replace it. I had $124 in credits from them from previous purchases, plus a $2 reward, so my total out-of-pocket for this $159 item was a little more than $40. Pretty good deal, I thought.

    In yesterday's email from Staples, I saw that they have this very same model on sale for $40 off. I checked their price match policy, then gave them a call to respectfully ask for a $40 credit. The customer service person was SO nice, and informed me that even though I was a few days outside their 14-day matching window, she would still credit me for the $40 +tax. Wooo hoooo! So my net out of pocket for the new Fire is, I think, something less than $1.

    Gotta say, Staples customer service seldom lets me down. :-)

    luvstoQ - you are welcome. Still waiting to hear back from HT but will let you know when I do. Hopefully they will send those of you who live in the area some sweet grand opening coupons! :-)
