    Momoff1, if you are looking to buy new, I would think anytime between now and the end of the calendar year would be a great time to buy a 2015. They are probably all on clearance now because they want to get them off the lot. Go onto the Kelley Blue Book site or something similar, and find the dealer's cost for the car you have in mind. Add $25, and start your negotiations from that point. That suggestions came from a Consumer Reports article I read several years ago -- hope it helps!

    ThomasG -- enjoy some special time away with your DW!

    I am sure your DH will do it right - he has even more SPECIAL cargo to get to Buffalo this time !

    I agree-we are overdue for a few days away by ourselves .

    I'm thinking it should be a "just the 2 of you" trip ThomasG :) and as far as the bad weather driving I leave that to DH. I can drive from here until PA which is where we usually start to see snow then I refuse to drive even once in buffalo. If they wanna see me they better be coming to me or coming to pick me up lol. Snow and I are not friends!!

    Thanks for letting us know about the $5/$20 Food Lion coupon. I wasn't going to get a paper this week and ended up getting 3!

    RAESMOM1612 - It was a Kia Rodeo .
    Would you need a car appropriate for bad weather driving ??
    Thanks !
    We have not decided if it will be a "just the 2 of us " or a "visit family and friends" trip .

    Thanks ThomasG I didn't check hotwire. What size car is that? Enjoy your getaway with your DW!!

  • ThomasG Oct 11, 2015

    Raesmom1612 - I have been searching for plane tickets and car rentals for a "get away" for DW and myself between now and end of the year . Hotwire had the best car rental deals as of last night - roundtrip , economy car, unlimited miles for under $130 ( that included Thanksgiving and the weekend after ) .

    It just came in the mailbox its in the redplum coupons watch for it in Sundays paper maybe

  • RaleighFoodBlogger Oct 10, 2015

    MSLEEP63- glad you also got it! And yes, as others said, HT and Publix will take it.

    And TJ84- it just comes delivered, not sure as it must be a Cary thing (I also got them weekly when we lived in another area of Cary several years ago).
