I am really tired of Walmart not posting an ad, so I finally went in to Walmart to try to find some deals.  This is big for me, haven’t been in a store in over a year.  I was shocked by how many times I saw “unbeatable price” and every time I could name off 5 different stores that recently had a better price.

But on a different note, there were some great Valentine’s Day clearance sales. The stuffed animals were all 75¢ and could easily be packed into an Operation Christmas Child box, hint… hint… the kids love to receive the stuffed animals!

    • Mistyhunt11

      I was excited to use the Benefiber coupon ($7/2) because, supposedly, the small box of sticks were $3.49, but, like you posted, my Walmart wanted $5.46 for the sticks. :(

      • Kenzbug

        I did they same thing, got there and they were a different price.

        • Mom0f4

          Same here. My Walmart has higher prices on some of these items. Like the Soy Sauce was $1 more than yours apparently.

    • Meljunkmail

      I agree with you….Walmart prices are beatable!!!

    • Lauren

      Thank you for going and posting a walmart list!

    • Bbcoughlin

      What a brave woman! I won't go NEAR a Walmart. The kids have meltdowns every time, and I need to be medicated afterward! :)

    • Karen

      I have not been able to find the Gillette Fusion razor at my Wal-Mart for $4.50. They are about double that price.

      • Frugal4eva

        ditto!

      • Get it at Wags. The Target sale on those razors are joke too.

    • Mrs Spilker

      What's the zip for the Cascadian Farms coupon?

    • evapisces

      Yeah I never go to Walmart anymore, just to pick up prescriptions. Mine never has the same prices as what other people post, they're almost always double the price. So now we just go to the drug stores.

      • They price by area. When the SODO SuperTarget in Orlando opened, they had a sign posted saying that stores price their items based on the neighborhood and the neighboring competition.

    • Marieperalez

      The $1/2 coupon for Scotch Brite is not working for me at Walmart. Is anyone having this problem also? Did it work at another store? Thanks!!!

      • Paige

        I saw other people posting other weeks that it was not working for them either.

      • Nicara24

        It didn't work for me, but the cashier did an override.

    • Cnewsome4

      My Walmart refuses to take internet coupons, even thought I've printed out the coupon policy and shown it to the cashiers and supervisors. It's a major hassel every time I go there. They make me feel like a criminal. Any ideas on this? Its the only real grocery store I have near me that's not ultra-overpriced!

      • Sean

        What other grocery stores are near you?

      • couponsforme

        call corp until they listen. You and friends and family until you get a call back! thn keep calling until they fix it. the district and GM numbers are in the customer service area and then you can always call 1800 number and go online as well. enough fusing and they have to listen ( DID THIS AT MY STAPLES AND NOW THE STORE MANAGER KNOWS ME BY NAME AND ALL RUNS VERY SMOOTHLY) yeah

      • Nicara24

        1-800-WAL-MART….works everytime

    • Counselingintern2002

      The only time I venture into WalMart is early morning-too much noise, crying babies, commercials playing throughout the store and not enough help. Am I the only one who doesn't like being bombarded with sound?

      • angela

        I don't like how you can never find anyone working on the floor and they workers you do find act as if helping you is the world's biggest inconvience for them. Give me target or publix any day.

    • They don't need to post an ad. The people who have bought the idea that Walmart is the cheapest (and they do beat the “everyday price” of the other stores) don't plan.

      • Pamela

        That was me until a few weeks ago when I attended a local coupon class. I had to go to Walmart today because they carry some gluten free items I can't find at Publix and I now know I will never go back to my old way of shopping or thinking I was getting a deal by shopping Walmart.

      • Dawn

        One of our two local grocery stores has gone to an “Everyday low price” module too. :( I wish we had some of the great grocery stores you guys have!

        I did venture into Walmart last week, I needed wire cutters, bird seed (I'm debating about bringing that back or feeding to the chickens, I think its old, my bird is peeved about eating it) and I did the Olive oil deal with the BOGO coupon I printed from All You. I stacked it with $1 coupons, but the BOGO must be attaching to both products, the clerk had trouble getting the last one to come off (It kept beeping and her litter machine kept spitting out reciepts or something…) She finally did push it thru. I don't know that it was a “deal” though, my husband said they big things of EVOO were cheaper per volume.

      • Denise

        AMEN SISTA!!

    • Blairford

      Borden's shredded cheese is $2; with the $1 off coupon available this makes $1 cheese!

      • If you have a Publix, you can get Sargento Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese for free to $0.50.

        • Sandraflittle

          My Publix is across the street from a super Target. They will take the Target coupon and stack it with a manufactuer coupon. I paid $0.10 for this cheese today.

    • Grocery Girl

      Thanks so much for doing a WalMart list! Their prices are def. not the best, but it's great when I need something on the quick (New at couponing)

    • Tina

      I really don't care for shopping at Wal-Mart since they are not coupon friendly but I did get 80 count Gain Dryer sheets for .13. They cost $3.13 use the $3.00 off Fabric softener or dryer sheets from last weeks Red Plum 2/13. I thought it was a great deal. I love gain.

    • atlanta coupon queen

      I went in my Walmart today and used my Walgreens Register Rewards – I went in knowing it was going to be a disaster – I came out pleasantly surprised – I got really cheap gain, cheap salad dressing, all you, cute shoes for my little one and some stuffed animals on vday clearance – I paid $2.19 out of pocket . . .

      • kendellw1

        You can use RR at WalMart? I wish I had known that! I hate the crowds and the lines but there is more variety on some things…

        • atlanta coupon queen

          Register Rewards are actually just manufacturers coupons . . .last week when i got 12 $1 RR from the skintimate, i needed to get rid of them – so walmart I went.

          • angela

            I tried to use a catilina coupon at wal-mart once for some cat litter. The cashier didnt' want to accept it even though it clearly said it was a manufaturers coupon at the top. She called the CSM over and he told me they couldn't take it either because it had been printed at Kroger. Although, their policy clearly stated they take manu. coupons and I previously talked to another CSM and they told me they would take any coupon that was a manu. even if another stores names was on the front. I got them to eventually take it (it was for $4 off so I really wanted to use it). But the cashier made it a point to be rude afterwards because “my bad coupon was going to throw off her drawer”. Unless it is a newpaper clipped coupon or one stuck to the product, I just don't bother to coupon at walmart anymore (not that I go there more than a couple times a month anymore.

            • Jennscaffeinated

              I had a “free sierra mist” cat print at ingles. Walmart denied it because it said “ingles” on it. Even though it was a manu. cat. She said they would take it if it were a cents off Q and not for “free”. Whatevs. Lol

          • Kb

            what did you use them on? I have those same !4 rrs,just like cash or what?

    • MomofEE&I

      Went to Walmart last month for the 1st time in about 6 months – no temptation there anymore, since I find better food deals at Publix & BiLo! Thanks to almost 2 years of saving w/ Southernsavers, my weekly Walmart trip is a thing of the past!

    • Tasha

      My ex-sister-in-law posted a pic from her phone to FB the other day. You could tell it was a WM sign, over the item. It said New Low Price! $4.59. Up at the top right corner, it said Was: $2.50. She actually tried to tell the employees that the sign must be wrong, and they couldn't figure out what was wrong with it….. yeah.
      And as some have said, my weekly, (at one point several-times-a-week) trip to WM is a thing of the past as well. I only go on Saturday nights, when I know I can find one of two really good, fast, courteous and coupon-friendly cashiers. All the great portrait ladies from their studio are now over at the Olan Mills studio in Kmart, so we go there for that now even. I do price-match some of the items that are on sale some weeks at CVS or Wags, simply because the variety is so limited at those stores. Example: couple weeks ago, CVS ad had rice-a-roni for 88 cents per box. Great price; WM is $1.12 regular. However, CVS only carries one variety, and it's NOT the one my hubby will eat. So I price-matched at WM for the variety we eat…. haha! They are good for SOMEthing, right?

      • Wendy

        LOL – I took a pic on my phone recently in Walmart of a “clearance” sign. “Clearance” price was $6.00, the before price? $5.00! Hmmm… does anybody see the problem?

    • Grannypig12001

      I only go to Walmarts when I have too…. I had to the other day and I thought I would check out some of their prices. One other thing that is not listed above was the Gain Dryer Sheets 80 ct for 3.12 with the 3.00 c/o that wouild it .12. But there are LOTS are items that are higher or only a coupon cents cheaper… The Walmarts here in Lexington has no customer service rules or very few of them follow them. I remember back when I had to stop at almost every Walmart I went by. The first one around here was 40 miles from where I lived and I only got to go to it once in a blue moon… now they are on every corner… It is good to know that I am not the only person that feels that walmart has lost it.

    • Sandraflittle

      Before I started couponing, (7/10), I went to Walmart every week and would spend $100.00 to $150.00. Now I never go there, their prices are to high. Love couponing!!!!!

      • Elizabeth

        I used to do the exact same thing, always thinking Walmart had the lowest prices. I started couponing in January and have only been to walmart once, and all I bought was Gain fabric sheets bc they were $3.12 and I had the $3.00 off coupon! :)

    • Genia

      I started shopping at Walmart about a month or so ago, thinking they were cheaper overall. Imagine my surprise when I handed over my reusable bags and was expected to bag my own groceries! PLUS, they're not cheaper overall. They do have a few things I can't get at Kroger (mostly just other varieties of things), but there's more that I can't get at Walmart, so I end up at Kroger anyway. They do have good prices on paper goods, though (TP, paper towels, Puffs). But in general, I think I'm gong back to the double-coupon, we-bag-for-you folks at Kroger.

      • jennifer

        Plus at kroger you get a .05 credit for every reusable bag you use. That may not sound like much to most people, but when your total is like $4 something and you have 20 bags, that makes a difference.

        • kroger shopper

          My Kroger in Tennessee stopped giving the credit for using reusable bags at the beginning of the year. ):

          • <3coupons

            Mine too

    • Fiveroller

      milk was 2.18 gal at walmart today. id like to shop exclusively at ht & bilo but most of the items we use are cheaper at walmart. i did find a deal on kraft singles at ht this week during super doubles. i got 6 packs free by fraudulently using the $1 off coupon for 2% singles on the regular singles i bought. ive got about 15 bottles each of gain and dawn detergent i probably wont have to buy again for the next 5 years. other than that, superdoubles didnt do much for me. i spent the other $43 in groceries at walmart.

    • Mary

      Gain Dryer sheets are $2.00 at Freds , the Liquid is $3.50 (big bottle!). So with the $3.00 Mq, free + tax dryer sheets, and .50 + tax liquid.

      • Leighann Howell

        My Fred's gave me the overage on the dryer sheets. I had 5 coupons for $5 overage, and I had 8 coupons for $2 off Dove (priced $2.25) so I got 5 boxes of Gain fabric sheets and 8 bars of Dove deodorant for free! I had to get other stuff to make up for the $3 overage.

        • Galveston 2000

          freds would not give me the overage-bought the 3.25 box of 80—then went to wal-mart 80s were 3.12-either one great

        • Galveston 2000

          and-freds doubles every sat -up to 70 cents -with no limit on # of q,s–i would rather give them the business wal mart does't even like to take a q

          • Bamasaver

            Just remember that Fred's doesn't accept internet coupons.

            • Leighann Howell

              They do now :D Check out their website. I even emailed their corporate to ask about it and they said yes, they accept internet coupons now.

            Fred's will only double the first of any like coupons. If you have 3 coupons for Dawn dish detergent that are 50c each, only the first one will double. At least, that is how the 3 Freds in my area work.

      I was at Wal Mart on Sunday and one of my big goals was to get some nice Valentine's Day clearance stuff. Sucks to be me, their clearanced items were 1 shelf of boxed Valentine's like Hannah Montana stuff. Less than 1 week after Valentine's Day and no clearanced chocolates?! Wal Mart sucks.

    • Where would we be sending those stuffed animals Jenny?

      • Susan

        Hi, Tina – Our family participated in Operation Christmas Child this past Christmas season. Through their amazing mission and vision for the children of the world, shoeboxes are distributed throughout the world to children who otherwise may not receive gifts. My daughters LOVED putting together shoeboxes for girls their age and we tracked the boxes to a remote part of Africa. Samaritan's Purse and Franklin Graham sponsor this wonderful program. Save those 75c stuffed animals until about November and then maybe make some boxes for those sweet children!

      The gillette razors are 9 to 10 dollars here in Rock Hill or am I missing something. Everytime I go to walmart to get these they are listed at this price what am I missing?

      • <3coupons

        I found $5 gillette fusion razors in the clearance section. They weren't marked but when I did a price check they came up $5. The razor I found is packaged with a small gillette deodorant.

      Jenny, I have to tell you that since I've been using coupons I have found better prices on more than 70 percent of the things I buy at stores other than Walmart. The most disturbing problem I have with shoppling at Walmart is the customer service I get everytime I present a coupon!! It seems like the cashiers don't understand the concept that people would actually want to get a better deal than what they offer to begin with.

      • 2sleepy2

        I understand what your saying. I fortunately have never had that problem at our Walmart. I rarely use coupons (because most of the time I can find what I am looking for in the generic brand or i don't use the products that most coupons are made for} but when I do the cashiers never even bat an eye. Also, most of them, like myself are very aware that Walmart just isn't what it used to be. There was a time when everything you wanted to buy was noticebly cheaper than other places and worth the drive whether it be 10 minutes or an hour.

        • carrie

          This is exactily what Fox news dot com is reporting today as Wal-Mart's misstep in recent years. They left the founder's, Sam Walton, original concept of always low prices to raising prices and offering 'deals' to better compete with Target. Interesting article.

      I went to WalMart over the weekend because we were needing some things and my husband had kind of made a smart remark because I wanted to make the 40 mile trip to Publix this week. I was about to just give up on couponing period and let him pay the $150.00 to $200.00 a week for groceries. I only picked up a few items at Walmart and my bill was over $62.00. Well, after a long conversation with my husband about the prices and what I save at Publix…even with the drive…my niece and I went to Publix today and had to gloat with that receipt. I paid less than $40.00 and saved $100.91. He didn't quite know what to say at that point. Don't think he will ever say anything again when I want to go to Publix about every 4 to 5 weeks to stock up. We also took advantage of some of the Hills Science Diet dog food while in that area.

      I see where some are suggesting calling corp. about problems with Walmart. Please don't implicate the telephone switchboard operator in your complaints. My elderly aunt (who is still very proficient) is in a “no win” situation with her job. No one in the departments or the managers and supervisors will answer her pages. She is then the brunt of the customer's rage. I don't know how she is still working there but it is completely out of her control to change things from her end.

    • Linds..:)

      Not sure if this has already been posted or not, but if you didn't use your -$2/1 Dial Nutra Skin Lotion Coupon from RedPlum 2/20 (last Sunday)…Wal-Mart has the 3 oz for $1.97 so that would make it FREE. I used mine at Rite Aid on Sunday which made the bigger bottle .99. I really try not to shop at Wal-Mart, but some people LOVE that place, so more power to them! I never get anything but trouble and an empty pocket book, so I try to steer clear of it. Shopped there all the time before SouthernSavers, but now I do not have to go back there! Thanks, Jenny, for yet another reason why I love this site so much! I HATE Wal-Mart!!! And Kmart for that matter… ;o)

      Went to Wal-Mart with all my coupons. Spent an hour in the store to get all my deals then headed to the self checkout. After scanning all my items, I started scanning my coupons. You have to stick them in that slot after scanning. About half way through my coupons the computer freezes up! The lady at the main register tells me she can scan my items up front but she can't get my coupons back out of the machine! After waiting on a manager for more than 20 min to come to the front of the store, I left very mad. They took $20.00 in coupons from me! I called the store and wrote a letter to the corporate office. Never received a reply and just got a sorry from the manager! Wal-Mart is a joke !!! They simply do not care !

      • Chele17rene

        I would be FUMING. I think I would have even called the police. They HAVE to do something for you. Like give you your coupons BACK!!! AT THE VERY LEAST!!! Next time, if there is a next time, DON'T put them in the slot till they all have scanned. Sorry that happened to you, don't let them get away with it though!!!

      ANyone have a good zip for the Philadelphia Cooking Cream?

    • Cattyjenny

      I used to go to Walmart all the time until I started couponing.. I can't remember the last time I was there!! I do remember, though, I tried to use those $4/2 rolaids coupons (remember those?) and their prices were something like 1.88 each, which meant 24 cents overage. o.m.g! You would not believe the trouble I went through just to get the cashier to push the damn coupon through. In the end I told her to take them out and took my coupon back. I went to Target for the rolaids instead. My husband works in a mall with Walmart attached to it, so he goes there now and then for me, to pick up little things, but I don't do any major shopping there anymore.

      • carrie

        Same here. I do go once a month for those few things that we use and never go on a good sale at Publix. Interesting to me that I'm reading about more and more couponers having this same feeling about Wal-Mart and it just came out in this morning's new that Wal-Mart is in “its worst sales slump ever”. Fox news says it is due to a misstep on Wal-Mart's part. Though coupons weren't mentioned in the article, I still wonder with the growing number of couponers and couponers' perception (mine included) about Wal-Mart's general unfriendliness towards coupons compared to other stores, maybe we couponers are having our voice “heard” by not spending money there and this contributed at least in a small part to Wal-Mart's slump. Something to ask my economics teacher if I was still in college. Personally, I've gone from a $100 weekly shopping trip to a $150 monthly shopping trip at Wal-Mart and I actually dred the weekends when I do have to go.

        • Bee

          I don't think coupons have a lot to do with it. In my opinion Wal-Mart is never going to double them. I think they got a little snotty and wanted people with money to shop there but in the process alienated people who make less money (and were buying more stuff).

          I have not had any problems with coupons at Wal-Mart. I have had more issues at Target and I still go there.

          What I have experienced in my Wal-Mart stores is that the prices went way up fast. I have always had a mental price list and therefore it was easy for me to recognize they were spiraling upward. So I stopped shopping Wally World long before I started using coupons. I was doing much better elsewhere even without coupons. For a little while even Target was trying to beat W-M prices but then jacked it back up when they started the 5% cash back when u use Target card deal.

          Literally, at the end of my shopping Wal-Mart (about 3 yrs ago), I was barely feeding my family on $125 a week. That was all I could afford and it would be fine if I was actually able to buy everything we needed, but that wasn't the case. No snacks, limited produce and meats, no paper products. Now that same $125 is still spent but it has a lot of extras built into it. I am also feeding two large dogs I didn't have before and my kids have grown into teens.

          Another frustration I started to have with W-M (mentioned by others) is the lack of stock. It was like shopping in a third world country–going in to get something basic and the shelf is wiped (and not due to a great coupon/sale). They just weren't staffing enough people to keep stock out. When I go to Kroger, there are ALWAYS people stocking at all times of the day. Every W-M I would go to would be the same, paper towels out, bottled water out, certain canned goods. Why continually visit a grocery store that does not really have groceries?

          Maybe W-M has FINALLY gotten somewhat of a wake-up call.

    • Jacobs

      I think the key to shopping at Walmart is buying all generic. They have in most cases generic much lower than what I can coupon for the name brand. I've been couponing since I was a child and I still do on some items that I want name brand, but overall we are just generic food people.

    • Trakins

      What are Register Rewards and how do I get them?

      • carrie

        RRs are a Walgreens program. Go to the Walgreens tab up top and you should get more info that way.

    • Ftk

      After reading the posts about Walmart here are my comments; I use Walmart to fill out my weekly shopping for items that don't have specials at Kroger or have coupons that are above $.50 (not doubled at Kroger). Bread is a good example of an item at Walmart that is always lower than Kroger. Also, many times Pillsbury items are lower even with coupon doubling, etc. I stockpile as much as possible but there are many items at Kroger that are just not competitive even after couponing, mega events, etc. If you have the time, can afford the extra gas, and spend the time to research prices, I believe Walmart should be part of your monthly shopping.

      • Bee

        That's funny. I buy all my Pillsbury exclusively at Kroger. I buy them when I can stack e-coupon with paper and get a Catalina (they are constantly doing Pillsbury/General Mills Catalinas) or a Buy X products…get $4 off, etc. Often it ends up as money maker and I have way more crescent rolls than I need. End up cooking them with every meal just to rid myself of them.

        My husband and I were recently in Wal-Mart to get dog treats with my coupons and of course they were out. I decided just to grab a loaf of cheap bread there and their store brand looked terrible…misshapen (not due to being squashed) and looked like it had holes. We looked at each other and said, “Take me to Kroger.” I generally buy my bread at Kroger when they have extreme deals on Pepperidge farm, etc. Last time I stocked up it came out to .99 per fancy loaf (whole grains, etc) after the catalina. Should have stocked up more, but even if they don't have “fancy” bread on sale, they always have some bread on sale, store brand, etc. Aldi has decent store brand for .79 and Ingle's often has 2 pound loaf for .68. With all those alternatives, I have never found Wally World to be competitive.

        Walking through Wal-Mart and seeing the prices makes me just about cringe.
        The way I am forced to go there is if Kroger does not carry the item I have a coupon for, usually a free coupon, etc.

    • AngStew

      The only thing this week I used was my $5/2 Tucks IP(making the smaller packs .38 each) and my Uncle Bens rice $1 off (making them .38 a pouch). the rice is actually really good and easy to fix, my toddler loves it. The benefiber, nutriskin lotion and cracker barrel cheese were all different prices here than what people had reported on other sites.

    • Aljadd

      I used to be a huge WM fan. I would go and spent $120/plus a week for my family of four. I have finally been able to start printing the 'printable' coupons thanks to my in-laws who gave us their old laptop. It works fine where as my laptop wouldn't print. I now shop mostly Publix and come out of WM with around $30/week. I can't find milk at P as cheap as WM, and we go through a lot of milk. I still haven't found where Jenny gets flour and such for cheaper. I do have two ladies at WM that I will only go to and they are so very nice. I will stand in line longer just to not have to deal with the other whine sacks who complain about my reusable bags and coupons. Other than my two favorite cashiers, WM can kiss my southern savers bootie! :0)

      • Save1moredollar

        Haha… I buy diapers at WalMart. The ParentsChoice brand of diapers is the best price I can get (without buying a paper, going to an extra store, and over thinking it). And, the diapers have improved a lot. So, $14 for 82 size 4 diapers, works for me for convenience sake.

        • Lsum

          I just did a HUGE stock up of diapers from Walgreens last week when they were B1G1 and a coupon in the store for $2 each pack. It ended up being $4.99 for two packs of diapers!

          • Mbruno5

            I did the same thing except i work for walgreens and got my 20% off employee discount as well. I paid $24 for 12 packs of diapers.

    • Nanacallais

      In my community there are 3 grocery stores, WM supercenter, CVS, RIte Aid and 2 dollar stores. Not one of them double coupon at all.
      I usually buy the best sales from CVS and the three grocery stores and the rest of my stuff is from WM or occasionally a dollar store.

    • Thehagwoods

      I went to Walmart for the first time in probably three or four months (it was painful to walk into the store). I used my 3off gain sheets for a profit and bought valentine clearance with the overage. I walked out spending 2.43 and saved over a hundred (if the clearance had been full price) My husband laughed becuase it took me so much time to find deals worth my overage in Walmart!

    • Mmariela27

      We need Publix in my city. We have Wal Mart Target Winn Dixie Walgreens Dollar General and Rite Aid…

    • Tah312

      On the subject of bread… the local Dollar Tree carries Natures Own WW and HW for $1. If you have one in your area it might be worth checking out. I stock up with 4-5 loaves and freeze them and get them out as needed. Taste just as fresh as the day I bought them,

      • Bee

        Ours used to do that and then it tapered off so that now it's only a pleasant surprise if you see them there.

    • Amandacottrell

      Yey! I was thinking the same thing about the stuffed animals for OCC! :)

    • Nicole

      Ok,, went into my Walmart with my coupons ready for some of these deals. Almost none of them are in my store. The only one was the Louisiana hot sauce. Talk about a disappointment. I'm getting tired of running out to stores just to find out the deal isn't a deal, because it's only a local/manager's special. Can this site and others somehow indicate that the sale is not a national sale? It would save me time, gasoline and a lot of frustration!!!!

    • lindsey

      Where do I find the Athenos $2/2 Q on FB? I “liked” Athenos, now what? Thanks

    • LylithC

      I ran into Walmart this morning to pick up some cokes on my gift card. I used to shop at Walmart frequently. However now that I have started following Southern Savers I haven't been into a Walmart in weeks. Like Jenny, when I was walking towards the back of the store I looked at all of the Rollbacks on the endcaps & in the middle of the aisle & balked! The Cinnamon Toast Crunch they had on roll back for $4.00 when you can get it at Publix for half the price, BEFORE the coupon!! When I would talk the ladies I used to work with about shopping at Publix they would tell me that I was wasting my money when I could just shop at Walmart. Little do they know that they are wasting money at Walmart. Jenny thank you so much for all that you do & I tell almost everyone I know about your website & how awesome it is!! I don't do as well as some of the other people on here because I live in FL where no one doubles coupons, but Monday I went to Publix and spent $80 & saved over $90. That was something to get excited about!

    • Nicole Nickle7

      I feel the same way Lylith!! The only reason why I go there is because of giftcards. I can save so much more at Harris Teeter (We don't have Kroger or Publix where I live now in NC but I moved from TN so I know them well!). Thank you SouthernSavers for proving that you CAN save A LOT more going to other places. However, growing up in a really small town in the middle of no where, I understand that some people don't have other options besides W-Mart but I commend you for trying to save. Every little bit counts! Which is why we love this website :-)

    • Txbelle

      I wish I knew these prices were done by region, I bought the gillette coupons on ebay thinking that my walmart had the same prices listed here. :( shame on my I should have gone to walmart to check first :(

    • What you do here is an amazing service to all of us. The web site is laid out perfectly. I really appreciate the education!

      Had a Wal Mart ad in Sunday's paper, heavily associated with the P&G coupons
