    • Maranda

      Thanks for getting this up tonight! Although I don’t think the 20lb of Cats pride Litter is $1.59 I am curious as to how much it is regular if anyone knows. Thanks!

      • Ingrid

        I just checked the store, and the cat litter is $3.62 regular price, so after the $1.00 coupon it comes to $.81 per bag. Not free, but a very good price! :)

      • gena

        A friend hit the store earlier today — the Cat’s Pride was $2.23 or 2.24. She asked about the $1.59 and was told that the BOGO ad read “save AT LEAST $1.59.”

        • Laura

          I just left the Bi Lo on St Andrews Rd in Columbia, SC. Several items, Blue Bell Ice Cream, Cat Litter, Ceasar Dog Treat, Carpet deodorizer were significantly more than I anticipated. Ice Cream was 6.85, Dog treats 3.99, Cat litter 4.47, Carpet deod. 3.59, is it common for stores to mark up the B1G1 items?

          • Sherry

            Honestly, I see this all the time at Bilo. I have sometimes skipped deals because I get to the store to see that the price listed as regular price is higher than normal. I think they do it on at least a few items everytime they have a BOGO sale.

            • Marlene

              If there are 2 items they list the savings for the lowest price items – in this case it was the liners ….

    • CouponNERD

      Hooray! Let the couponing begin! Thanks Jenny and Mr. Jenny!

    • Mina

      Oh, crud! It’s a GOOD ad! A week of boring ads from all of the stores would have fine with me. It would give me a vacation from grocery shopping. :-)

      You have a hearty thanks from me, Jenny. This is the ONE grocery ad that I really *need* before Wednesday morning. If I have the ad, I shop at Bi-Lo on Wednesdays because it’s senior day. If I don’t have a matchup by then, I usually don’t get to that store at all because I’m too busy.

      The items that attract me the most if I have the q’s are:

      Crisco oil – That’s a staple at a very good price for the size.
      Applesauce – I’ve been out for a few months and been WAITING for a good sale. I HOPE our paper had q’s. It seems like something that would go on sale more often than it does.
      Oatmeal – Only if I have q’s. Who’s going to pay over $3 for 8 packets?
      Bread crambs – Another staple that could use some restocking.
      Bananas – Seems like just about everyone is finally having some decent banana prices lately, but this is the best I’ve noticed.
      Sour cream – I’ll either get here or at WAG’s next week.

      There are other things I’ll probably get a few of just to give away, like the Kashi and brownies, because the prices are excellent, but my own grocery needs are well met, except for a very few items, and I have no freezer space left.

      I see White Lily is finally going on sale a few stores – a week amd a half after the only q’s they had in circulation this year expired.

    • Jennifer

      I am new to Southern Savers and I just wanted to send out my thanks to you and your husband for all of your time and effort. You are helping many!!
      Keep up the good work :)

    • Hi Jenny-
      I am new at this, so please forgive me if I am just making a newbie-mistake, but I can’t find the emerald nuts, progresso soup, or Endust spray in the 11/08 inserts. I am starting to think maybe I am crazy! Is there a secret I am missing? Thanks for the help!

      • Jenny

        Hey there Laurel!

        You aren’t crazy the Savannah morning news misses a lot of coupons each week that other areas get. You can do a few things to still get these like order them online from http://www.thecouponclippers.com or have a friend/family member mail you the inserts from a bigger paper. If you know anyone that can get the AJC out of Atlanta or the GA Times Union these have the most coupons in them fro the GA area.

        • Thank you, Jenny! That must have been the problem, I bought the Savannah paper, not AJC. Now I know for next time! Any chance you would ever do a couponing class when you are in Statesboro? I think we could get together a good group.

    • Suzanne

      I’ve heard that Food Lion is buying Bi-Lo and changing their stores…..anyone know if this is true or not? I really hope not bc down here (Charleston area), the Food Lions are gross and never have good sales or double coupons….

      • Dawn

        I’ve heard that too. I agree, I hate FL, but perhaps then our Publix will take FL coupons since for us they’d be right across the street from each other! That’s the only silver lining I’ve thought of for FL buying BiLo…

        • Susie

          We have nice, new Food Lion stores in Upstate SC but no doubling and lots of quantity limits on their BOGOs. They have great meat depts. I hope any changes will be from the best of both worlds. Have my fingers crossed!!

          • Jamie

            Bi-Lo is in bankruptcy and Food Lion has put a bid to buy it as well as other companies, but no official word has been made by the judge. So it may or may not happen. If it does, then they may or may not change the name of the stores. In my opinion, if it happens since Bi-Lo is a household name around here, it would not be in their best interest to change the names of the store.

      • Alicia

        I thought Food Lion was buying Bi-Lo also but was told last week at my local Bloom (owned by Food Lion) that the deal fell through at the last minutes so who knows.

      • Tiffany

        I work at the BI-LO corporate office. I can tell you that Food Lion has an interest and had sumbitted a letter of intent to the bankruptcy courts (because BI-LO is still in bankruptcy). Nothing will be final before the end of the year. And no one here or otherwise knows any different. It is all in public bankruptcy documents if you’re curious to keep up on it. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that another investment group will buy us and keep us in tact because we know that the corporate offices will no longer exist as they stated for our local newspaper. If they do buy us we have no idea what will happen to our stores- if they will remain BI-LO store fronts, etc. Just keep in prayer for us. It’s a terrible time to be out of a job.

        Thanks Jenny! I can’t tell you too many times how many times over thankful I am for your hard work and dedication to this website and effort.

          I’m rooting for you guys, your jobs, and most all – Bi-Lo. It’s a very customer friendly store. I’ve never been in a bad Bi-Lo, and do as much of my shopping there as I am able because I really want them to pull through this.

          I don’t have very much nice to say about Food Lion company. I’d hate to see them gut a really good chain.

          • Tiffany

            Thanks Mina!!

            Actually, their letter of intent was terminated but FL still shows a continued interest in the company. It hasn’t fallen through and it hasn’t been finalized either.

            • Tiffany- Wow- the power of prayer……I will be doing it for you specifically and your co-workers. :) M

    • Jessica

      I am new to this and curious. How often do you find that the ads just do not include the things you need at the time or use? Last week was great for me, but this week, there are only a few deals. Can you give me a little insight?

      • Mina

        For those who do calculated shopping, “only a few deals” is the best kind of week. What I do is concentrate on those few really good deals and purchase enough to last us a little beyond when I can reasonably expect the next good sale cycle for them. That’s usually around six week’s worth, although for items we use year round that only have their best sales at certain seasons, like baking chips, or rarely go on sale, like the parchment paper at one store last week, I buy more. Then I buy just enough of things we need now to use immediately.

        Stockpiles wind up growing relatively quickly without increasing your budget when you shop that way. As the number of things that you need each week that you don’t already have gets smaller, you can either spend more on stocking up, or put the dollars you are no longer spending toward something you’d rather get than groceries.

        Eventually, you may even prefer weeks like this one where you can go in, gather your perishables and the few items that excite you, and get through the store quickly.

      • Beth

        I’m pretty new to this as well and felt like you did at first. I have to say after a couple of months my pantry is bursting at the seams and I have been spending a good deal less…on items I like and use. What’s more is I am now cooking more than ever because the sales give me more structure…instead of being indecisive about what to make! I now also go to several stores to find the best deals on things i need every week, like milk and bread. Being a stay at home mom makes it easier to do this, though….which is what led me to do the coupons in the first place.

      What zip is used for the New England Coffee?

      • Amber

        I used 12345, and there was a click to learn more which took me to the New England site. Then I looked under the “Our Coffee” tab and “Special Offers.” I had to fill out a form to download the coupon. HTH

    • Gabi

      Has anybody tried to print the Blue Bell coupon? I tried and all that happens is I click on the coupon button and get asked to log in. Once I have, I click on print coupon, and am asked to log in again. Any help?

      • Sofia

        I tried to log in and realized I didn’t have an account , I signed up and press on it again and ask again for me to log in…I did so and I printed them off..hope that helps

    • nina

      can not find the snuggle coupon on coupons.com.. boo!!

    • Tracy

      can someone tell me what a hangtag is/or where to find this type of coupon? Thanks a bunch!!

      • sarah

        tracy- a hangtag is a coupon “hanging ” off another product. On bottles you will usually see them off the neck of the bottle. ive seen many in my store on wine bottles, sometimes you have to buy the wine, sometimes you dont. i think it is up to your store and the restrictions listed on the hangtag. HTH

        • tracy

          thanks sarah…im a cple months into all this and most I have been able to figure…have a good day

    • keb2009

      anybody got a zip for the mrs. paul coupon?

      • Janae

        On one website is says to use zip 30013, but I was not successful…. Not sure this coupon is out there anymore…

    • luiza

      My produce man at our local bi-lo says that the Bi-lo-Food Lion deal fell through (thank goodness). In the Charleston area Bi-lo stores have always been far superior to any F L.

    • luiza

      Dear Jenny and Family,
      Your work is helping my family, thank you so much! I was so pleased to have gotten the deal on beechnut baby food, as we will be travelling with a baby and this has saved us considerably in baby food costs. Thank you again for all you do.

        Me either! Is this a weird regional thing? The only large size oil I see is for a 3 gallon at $19.99!

        • Cori

          I am in Greenville,SC and the Crisco is on the little fold out page on the front of the ad.

    • penny saver

      What will the deal be if i purchase 3 kleenex and use the bogo coupon from bi-lo site and the .50/3 and they are bogo?? how will the bogo coupon affect the bogo price?? hope that makes sense

      • Catherine

        Just a heads up regarding Kleenex.. Walgreen’s has all of their sizes at 99 cents with their in ad coupon, and so if you use your 50/3 there, you’re getting a better deal than if you head to Bilo.

        • allison

          but walgreens doesn’t double coupons…

          • Denise.

            Walgreens has a q in their sale ad for 1.09 each, limit of 3. Combine that with the 1 off q for Kleenex Ultra Soft tissues in their November Healthy Saving Booklet and one .50 cent off 3 q, add one filler item (I chose one carmel candy for .33) and your total for 3 boxes is .35 cents. I plan on going back and doing the deal again. My kids teachers always need tissues for the classroom:)

            • Mina

              Actually, they had a better deal than that. There was the weekly ad store q that made them $1.09 ea., a different Nov. q for -$1/1 specifically for the 85 ct, and the MQ for -.50/3. When purchased 3 at a time, no fillers were needed, except to absorb the .23 overage. A bought some with my daughter, a teacher, in mind.

              Kleenex are something I discovered this year, thanks to Q’ing the sales. They are SOOOOOO soft! But with such an incredibly high regular price that I never considered buying them before this fall.

            • Mina

              Duh, I misread your comment! I thought it said there was a .50/1 in the HSB. Anyway, no filler was needed because the 2 WAG’s q’s were store q’s that could be used together. The .50/3 MQ was only 1 q. I was using them along w/the $5/25 q. So, that wee bit of overage just went toward reducing my OOP.

    • Ann

      I was not able to find the Betty Crocker pouch potato coupon. Any suggestions?

      • Sue


    • sheila

      where is (again) the list of available coupons? The web site is what I am looking for. Thanks

    • AngelaDH

      The Kashi Pizza is 3.10 (BOGO price), the disposable gloves are .89/.90 ea (BOGO price), the Cesar dog treats (blinkie at Ooltewah store) are $1.98 (BOGO price), cat litter is about $7 before coupon and the Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean are $1.99 (BOGO price). They were tricky with their advertising this week! Oh well, I still saved a lot! :D

    • Jennifer G

      What zip code do I use for the Mrs Paul’s coupon and the Aunt Jemima coupon? Thanks

      • Telena

        Try 29605

    • bhumi

      Cesar Dog Treats, 6.7oz., at my Bilo are for 2/$4

      • RM

        my bi-lo reg price is 3.99 so with sale and coupons they would be 1.00 each . same price with the Hartz crunch and clean dog treats
        I’m In Cleveland Tn

    • Devon

      Printable for $1 off Spot Shot carpet cleaner on Spot Shot website. Thanks!

    • Beth

      THe Goodlife treats at my Bi Lo are 2/$4 not B1G1. There were $2 coupons in Sunday’s inserts. Still free but no overage. Oh well. Also, they were out of Endust and the cat litter was $5.99. I think the $1.59 was for the liners. All in all not a bad trip though. I did 2 orders, the total before coupons was $186.32. After coupons I spent $27.49 or 85%!

    • Mina

      I was VERY pleased with my trip to Bi-Lo tonight. Quick trip in and out, and I left laden with 5 very heavy reusable bags plus the jugs of milk and gallon of Crisco for under $20 total. ($18.98)

      I was happily surprised that for the first time ever in my trips there, the register properly calculated the bonus doubling for q’s which had a face value of over 1/2 the the amount of the item purchased. Yay! They gave a bonus of only the amount which would bring the item cost to zero, instead of straight doubling to create overage or being totally suppressed. I’m happy that I probably won’t have to bother the CS staff or managers to manually enter the correct amount so often.

      BTW, it’s CANNED pineapple, not produce section pineapple that is BOGO this week.

      • RM

        yeah I went early hoping to get some fresh pineapple with my coupon. Bummer!

    • karen

      Very frustrating trip to my store in Mullins, SC today. The Progresso soup that is B1G1 @ 2.46 would not stop beeping .50/2 q. She said that the register said that the value of the q exceeds the value of the item. I told her the price and explained that even w/ a doubled q, I was still paying oop. She then manually entered the q and it did not double. I told her to remove all of the soup from my order and I would go to Florence to the store there and get my soup. In addition, the Good life treats (B1G1) had been marked up to 4.00 (normally less than 2.60) and the Hartz Crunch and Clean marked up to 3.99 (normally less than 3.00). Probably will NOT return to my local store. I noticed that there was a new manager there. I will try calling customer service in the a.m. I am not a happy shopper.

    • Yes- I was also taken a-back when I saw all those dog/cat food discrepancies…..was disappointed b/c I took the time to find the Q’s and hoped to use to donate…..people going thru rough times need to feed “their best friends” too :) M

    • Vicki :)

      Does anyone know how much the Goodlife Cat Food is with the 25% discount? My coupons expire in a few days and I am down to one bag!

    • Sofia

      Went to Bilo yesterday in Columbia and the Blue Bell ice cream is much higher… about a $1.oo higher
      Also I bought milk for $2.88 and got tokens back for when I buy 5 i can get the 6th one free!:)

      • Amy

        Yes, I think the Friarsgate Bi Lo has Blue Bell Ice Cream 1/2 gallon for reg $6.39 or $6.59 .. it’s the individual cups that are $5 .. deceptive so to speak .. but the ad says to “save at least…” that is usually a clue that at least one item in the pictured group is MUCH higher! But it IS cheaper than Publix had them for $3.99/half gallon!

    • Angel

      Watch for coupons pad in the check-out for Trident Layers Gum, buy 1 get 1 free. The gum is priced at 1.49, so not a good deal at this time, but the coupons may come in handy for a later sale.

    • Laney C.

      Can someone tell me what’s up with Bi-Lo’s coupon policy? Everytime I go to buy the country crock deal it doesn’t turn out right.

      This is what I got:

      7 butters and used 2- .50 off, 4- .30 off and 1- .55 off

      only 1 0.50 off doupled and the 0.30 off only doupled 0.11

      what’s up w/that?

      • RM

        I had the same problem I wes going to get some mentos gum on sale for 99 cents I had 55 cent coupons and it rang up way too much cashier said the coupons did not double . But even with that it rang up way too much . I did not get the gum thought I’d go back and try later. I got 12 gums and used 12 55 cent coupons and it came up to 14 dollars . even if the coupons did not double that’s still way too much. I can’t keep up with their coupon policy some times they double sometimes they don’t. I do have a copy of their coupon policy I think I’ll re-read it.

      • pharmSCgirl

        At bi-lo always scan your coupons before you give them your bonus card. This cuts down a lot of coupon problems. If you just ask the cashier if you can wait to scan ur bonus card at the end they are usually really nice about it. I always use that opportunity to tell them about this great website. I hope this helps.

        • i was scanning my card after coupons too, but on my last order the coupons were not doubling on their own until i scanned the card. anyone else had this happen??

        • Laney C.

          Thank you so much! I will try that on my next trip.

      • Mina

        Laney, every now and then there are glitches in the register programming for certain q’s, and they do some oddball doubling – like for that .30 q of yours doubling only .11. (BirdsEye q’s are notorious for glitching.) When that happens, the cashiers don’t have the ability to adjust it correctly. I just call the Customer Service Leader, or have them call a manager for me and it’s never been a problem for them to apply the correct discount.

        The new register programming made me happy because q’s which would have exceeded the sale price when doubled were automatically adjusting the Bonus portion to bring the cast to zero. It won’t eliminate those occasional oddball .11 or .16 cent Bonuses from programming errors, but it will reduce the times I have to request assistance to get the bonus.

    • kathi

      The new q’s are out to try the BiLo brand. This time it is whipped topping, vegetable juice and garlic bread

    • Janet

      Progresso soups were not BOGO at my Bi-Lo in Goose Creek. They were $2.42 each. No deal there. :( It’s not listed in their ad either.

      • Janet

        I am sorry. I was wrong about the Progresso soups. I took the clerk’s word that they were not on sale and not in the ad yet I checked the ad and they are on sale BOGO. What a shame I could have gotten one free just because it did not ring up correctly. I’ll have to stop back and get them since I have two $1.10 coupons on one.

        • karen

          Read #30 before you make a special trip…could have just been my Bilo in Mullins, SC. I contacted corporate today and am awaiting a response.

    • Melissa

      There is a .75 off coupon on Del Monte Pineapple on coupons.com to go along with the sale of the pineapple. Making the pineapple .44

    • Cat

      Curious… What’s the usual “best price” for Turkey? .49 cents a pound sounds good, but does it ever go on sale for something like .39 cents a pound the week before the holiday?

      I did my first successful run at Bi-Lo this past week. I love that you can use two coupons for their B1G1 items, unlike HT.

      Does anyone ever find that even though you have a huge stockpile of something (say, oh I don’t know, *8 BOTTLES* of dish soap) that you still feel guilty when you don’t go buy it when it’s on sale? I’ve run out of room in my stockpile pantry…

      • Angel

        I have this happen all the time. I donate much more in property than in money these days. Food items go to the loacl soup kitchen. Medicines and some cleaning supplies to the local free medical clinic. The nurses at the medical clinic like ice tea mix too!! Cat food, liter, dog food and treats go to the local animal shelter. I even send candy, hand sanitizer, and tissues to the local special needs class at the high school.
        Plus I am always sharing stuff around the office.
        I have so much brownie mix, that I make brownies for my husbands office about once a week, lol.

        Thanks Jenny for making all this possible!

      • Mina

        “Does anyone ever find that even though you have a huge stockpile of something (say, oh I don’t know, *8 BOTTLES* of dish soap) that you still feel guilty when you don’t go buy it when it’s on sale? I’ve run out of room in my stockpile pantry…”

        LOL Nope! Well, I used to sometimes, but not anymore. I DO remember that uneasiness, though. After awhile I realized that if I had *that much* of something because of frequent sales, then I didn’t really need to stock very much because it would (lightbulb) BE ON SALE AGAIN long before I needed more. (A few things come to mind here – dish soap, bodywash, shampoo, toothpaste, cheese.)

        Now, I look through the sales for things I’m running low on, need or want and don’t already have a stock of, or seasonal items that have a strong chance of not being on sale again. When I started thinking that way is when I really started to see my monthly spending fall.

        I can’t tell you how much better it feels to see ‘great deals’ and be able to walk right by them than it feels to chase deals. You’ll feel your own high soon enough the first time you walk past a deal on something you use, and just smile because you know you already have all you need.

      • Mina

        Oh. .49/lb is good. Turkey prices are almost never a better price the week leading up to T Day than what they will be at this stage. Sometimes all that are left are expensive “fresh” turkeys.

      I can’t seem to find the endust coupon in 11/8. Does anyone else know where 1 might be? Thanks!

      • Angel

        I couldn’t find it either, from the Columbia SC “Tha State” newspaper.

      • Sue

        That’s strange. I am usually the one missing Q’s. But I have it from the Greenville (S.C.) News from 11/8 Red Plum.

      Thanks Jenny! I got 4 boxes of Chex mix and the Snuggle all for $4.99. This year’s party mix is going to be so cheap to make! Going for cheap Cheerios at Teeter this week, using Worcestershire sauce I got for free months ago. I love it when a plan comes together…

      • pharmSCgirl

        I thought that i had seen in the add that Chex was on sale but when I got to my bi-lo (st. andrews road – columbia, sc) I did not see it on sale. I was going to do the same thing and make chex mix for the holidays.

    • brandy

      i am very new to southern savers and the whole couponing thing…i am printing out my coupons, and of course, my printer is running out of ink…will the stores take the coupons if they are printing in a light blue or should i just wait until i have a replenished printer cartridge? don’t want to look silly when it’s time for check-out…by the way, thanks jenny for sharing and thanks to my teacher friends for telling me about southernsavers!!!! :)

      • Sue

        I print until my cartridge runs all the way out. If they won’t scan, I apologize. Te cashier can key them in.

      • Vicki

        Sometimes they will not take them if they don’t scan. I have printed mine in gray before and they scan fine, but some stores won’t key the bar code in. It just depends on the cashier/store.

    • brandy

      really confused…yes, i am new to this…how are you able to use multiple coupons on an item when the coupon says “limit one per customer”??? i have printed out the country crock coupons, but they both say limit one per customer, but jenny says she used them together to get free country crock…so confused……

      • Sue

        You can use one coupon per item. In this case, The country crock is BOGO free @ $2. That means they are $1 each. If you buy one, use one 50¢ coupon. The coupon doubles to $1, which makes it free. If you have 2 coupons, you can get 2 for free! I always buy however many coupons I have.

      • Amanda


        I just want to point out that the Food Lion (and some other store) coupons typically do say “one per customer.” And that really means one per customer. But if you have your hubby with you…he’s another customer.

        On the manufacturer coupons, they say “one per purchase.” By “purchase” they mean “item that you are purchasing.”

        Hope that helps. :o)

    • CiCi

      regarding the $3 Snuggle coupon…i went to 2 bilos and of course both were completely out of the liquid Snuggle, if you look closely the coupon can also be used for fabric sheets. since it expires tomorrow i didn’t want to waster it….Bilo had Snuggle 80 ct fabric sheets on sale for $3.69 meaning i paid 69 cents after the coupon! and they were fully stocked! just an fyi for those of you who can’t find the liquid in stock but don’t want the coupon to expire! go for the fabric softener sheets!

      • DC

        Thanks for the tip on the fabric softener sheets. I had 4 coupons and there were only 2 bottles of Snuggle left so I grabbed those and 2 of the sheets.

    • pharmSCgirl

      I went to Bi-Lo tonight and my total before my bi-lo bonus card or coupons was $70. After I scanned all of my coupons the total was $51 and then scanned my bi-lo bonus card which then brought the total down to $18. I just love watching the numbers decrease when standing at the register. If you plan on going to bi-lo and often times have trouble with your coupons scanning, try using your coupons before your bonus card. Even if you are going through the express (do it yourself) line you can scan your coupons and then at the end hit purchase more items and scan your bonus card and then pay.

    • Liz

      Since Blooms is owned by Foood Lion, can we use food lion coupons at Bloom? I’ve also just read that Food Lion is buying Bi-Lo. There are 3 Bi-Los and 1 Blooms that I pass going to and from work but not a single Food Lion. I hope they don’t close any of the Bi-los and I certianly hope they don’t close the Blooms. I love that store. I went to 1 Food Lion 1 time and that was the last. I’m a newbie here so any couponing help would be greatly appriciated. My first victory was having a $1 off coupon for a Pilsbury cake mix that I got for free for my daughters birthday. But I also picked up cake decorator tips and they were $1.59. Cake mix was .77 so the total bill was $1.32 + tax. My daughter liked her cake. She is now 19. :)

    • Diana

      The Muellers whole wheat pasta was on sale at BiLo/Sandhills in Columbia for $1.00 box. Using the $.55 of coupon from the website made it free (or $.10 overage)It beats the deal at Publix.

      • Margie

        I also took advantage of the whole wheat pasta deal at the Gamecock BiLo on Devine.

        Did anyone get whole wheat Thomas bagels? I just looked at my receipt and noticed that they rang up full price. I’m just wondering if the BOGO was only on certain varieties.

    • LoriNSC

      I got the cat liter this morning. It’s the Cat’s Pride 20 lb bag. Reg price was 3.99 on sale B1G1. I got 4 bags & used 4-$1 coupons, my total was $4.44. That was in Greenville. Wow-that’s 80 lbs of liter for less than I usually pay for the 20 lb container (usually $6-7). My cat can potty away! lol

      • LoriNSC

        Thanks so much for your weekly lists Jenny! You’re saving my family so much $$$.

        BTW- I saved some liter for others. I had to go to 2 BiLos but I didn’t wipe em out.

    • Amy

      I discovered your site about two months ago, and I LOVE it! I am still fairly new to couponing, and your site makes it so easy. Then I was at a GCAMOTC play date recently and found out you’re a member; is that true? If so, all the cooler! :)

      • Jenny

        I am a member! Though I never get to make it to meetings. Tuesday night is the busiest night for me all week around this site :(

    • Deborah

      I don’t know if it was a mistake, but when I checked out at Bi-lo the Marcal TP rang up at $4.19. Then the discount was taken off since it’s B1G1 making it $2.09. Then I used the $2 off Marcal bath tissue (SS 10/18). I think $.09 for a 12 pack is a great price even if it isn’t great quality. Did that happen to anyone else?
