New Comment System!!

Many of you have already noticed and tried your hand at the new comment platform.  We have had this in the plans for a while and I’m so excited to have it started.  There are still a few kinks to work out… like getting all of the old comments pulled over but we are working on it!

I know change is tough for some but I want  you to see the awesome features that made me scream “I WANT THAT!”

The biggest feature for me is Comment Sorting:

sortfeature

If someone has a deal to add or you find another coupon, leave a comment.  Then others can click the “Like” button.  Now any comments that are liked by others can quickly be seen by sorting by “Best Rating” .  Now at the end of the week when Publix has 500 comments and you have 10 minutes you won’t have to spend too much time to quickly see extra deals to grab!!

You can share your deal in other places:

If you found a freebie at CVS and want to share it now you can leave a comment on Southern Savers, Facebook and Twitter all at the same time!

Other Features are just small little things that all add up.

  • You don’t have to scroll to the bottom of 400 comments to find the comment box.
  • If you reply to someone the text box pops up right there, rather than sending you to the bottom
  • You can personalize your comment if you want with your picture. (More fun than functional).

If you ever have suggestions or comments please share.  I’ll always listen to anything that can make Southern Savers more helpful.

    • Maryse

      Jenny, I'm so glad you've added this new feature! That will make it easier.
      Thanks!!!

    • Amy B.

      Pretty much the awesomest thing ever :)

    • zjustine

      I love this site! Thank you so much Jenny for doing this. I'm new to couponing and live in Southern VA and you have made couponing so easy. I was wondering if you know of another great site that does Farm Fresh grocery store?

    • Kim

      Forgive me as I am new at this “Whole new world of couponing!” :) I am wondering- there are many coupons listed as matches that I am just not finding even though I have the particular coupon insert. Is this just because regional papers vary? Or am I looking in the wrong place?

      • Amy B.

        They vary – A LOT! Not sure where you are located but Jenny does a list of regional coupon variations for major papers in the SE here

      • Yes, inserts vary greatly depending on which paper you get. The bigger the paper, the better the coupon selection (usually). To see how your normal paper stacks up (or just to get a feel for the variation), go to “Weekly Inserts” in the top menu bar and select “Regional Coupons.” Each week, Jenny posts a compilation of the variations, which other people help by submitting info for, so we can see if our paper carried a different version of a coupon (or didn't carry it at all).

    • sounds fun can't wait to see how it all pans out

    • keb2009

      so there isn't a login button to start off with? you have to click on post as guest first?

      • keb2009

        nm. i see you have to link from an outside source :)

        • keb2009

          only thing i can suggest is to still have the line breaks in between comments. without them it looks like one ginormous thread and the like and reply button seem to run together :)

          but maybe its just because im running such a high resolution on my system?

    • CBonnett

      At our KMart in Greenwood, SC they have bags of Transformer Snicker Minis for $1.50, with the $1 coupon of 2 bags of Snickers, I got 4 bags for $4!!

    • MelRae

      Awesome! Just when I think SS can't get any better, it does!

    • rachel

      Wowzers! How do you manage to make a great site better and better?
      The one feature I'd LOVE to see added to the comments is the ability to print them. Like the shopping list. So, you'd click a box next to a comment you'd like to print. That way, if someone posts a scenario or a deal they found, I don't have to copy and paste and print a whole new page, I can just print them as part of my shopping list.
      Thank you for all you do,
      :)r

      The Optional: Login Below is a little misleading…I don't see a place to Login only to Post as Guest.

    • debbid

      Bricks having problems? I just registered for the Milk but when I went to print the coupon, it said I had already printed my limit for the day. First time I visited their site and first time I tried to print the coupons :(

    • Stacey b

      I commented on a post earlier and I promise I left the “subscribe to all comments by email” UNchecked, however within an hour I had 30 something comments loading up in my inbox. I unsubscribed to the thread using the link in one of the emails and it took another hour or so to finally kick in. I have had this problem with Disqus before, so just be careful before you post a comment that the box is most certainly not marked. Well, unless, you want to subscribe to all the comments :) I am a little wary of even trying this again but we shall see.

    • TraciM

      Trying it out now…..thanks for all you do !

    • jmflosc

      You are awesome. I can't wait to attend your class in Florence.

    • pharmSCgirl

      I like the new comment system except, for every new topic I go to, I have to login to disqus again. Once logged in it reloads the page and takes me to the top and when I scroll down, I have to look for the comment that I wanted to leave a remark about. That's the only downside to this for me.

    • Jenni

      Having a hard time registering so that I can log in for my comments.

      • Jenni

        Ha! Apparently this system already knows me. Well, in that case I just wish we could delete our comments!

    • galynn

      I was recently turned on to a web site by a fellow couponer, that I am worried if it is safe. “Targetmaine.com” has 5$ off $25 ( Rite Aid ) that expires 12/31/10 with unlimited prints. Anybody else know if this is legal? I am in 'NO MOOD' to spend jail time for this!! Thanks

    • karen mullins

      I’m still new to this couponing world, but enjoy and look forward to my daily email. Just wondering if I’m the only one who gets them a day late?

    • gloria

      Is your Greenville< SC class full? I am registered (i think) but a friend might be interested.

    • dan.d

      Jenny, Thank you for all the work you do. Dan. D.

    • This comment system is one of the best options i have seen till day .

      Thanks for the useful stuff.

    • I like the idea of a single back panel instead of many is a good idea

      Experienced ladies I have a question, is it best to buy the Easter candy now at say $2.00 a bag of Herseys or wait until it gets closer to the holiday for even lower prices?
