    • tina

      Thanks for getting the ad up so early!!

    • Yes, Thank you so much!

      I was wondering if it would be up before the ad started, this was a wonderful surprise! I’m also glad to see the Green Giant Boxed Veggies are $1 again, I just stocked up on coupons for these and now I can’t wait to go get them!

      Does anyone know if Bi-Lo usually limits you to any specific quantity on items such as these? (I would like to get around 40-50 boxes, but have enough coupons for about 150 boxes).

      • vicki

        our bilo only allows you to use 8 of the same coupon

      • morgan

        Ours is 6.

      • Rm

        I know that if you speak to the store manager they would be happy to order them for you . They do this at our store . Just tell them what you want and they can get it for you.

        • Nancy

          I have ordered ahead a bunch of times. They can overide the register to double up to 50 in a transaction I think. They always open a register just for me…I have an awesome Bi-Lo !

      • Amanda K

        Ours is 10

      • Thank you all! I will talk to my BiLo’s manager to see what their policy is!

        • Sue

          OMG!! How can one person have 150 of the same coupon?

          • michelle

            The real question is, where would you put 150 boxes of frozen veggies?(Smile)

    • Denise

      Thanks!!! Just went to Bi-Lo today and bought $149 worth of groceries for $71! And I bought a good bit of meat! Thanks for all you do!

    • Jane

      My thanks also for getting this up so early. It helps a lot!

    • Karen Smith

      Bummer my Food Lion is closing in Franklin, TN

      • Lynne Henderson

        I attended Jenny’s Couponing 101 class this weekend and she showed us that Publix is really the best deal once you use your coupons. In fact, Food Lion was not a store that was recommended because they do not double coupons. Do you have a Publix or BiLo in your area?

    • Monica

      If you still have last month’s Bi-Lo Bonus Buy booklet, there was a .55 off any Tennessee Pride man. coupon that will make them 1.40 apiece!

    • Kathy

      My Daisy Sour Cream Q from SS 12.13 expired on 1.15. :(

      • I have some that expire on the 31st but I am not sure when I got them.

    • Debra

      Hi, Lynne

      I was reading your comment and like Jenny says Publix is a good store to shop at, Publix is my favorite store. I usually do pretty well when I shop there. I shop sometimes at Bi-Lo depending on there sales. I shop at the Publix store in Cola, SC. Most of the time I save 50-60 percent off my total and sometimes more. My goal is always to save at least 50 pecent and I usally achieve that. Good Luck in your shopping experiences, let us know how you did after your shopping trip. You will get addicted to grocery shopping after you see how much you can save, but it is alot of fun. The money you save on groceries you can use for something else.

    • Jennifer

      Thank you so much Jenny! I always look forward to Wednesday mornings :)

      • Rebekah

        i do too..i look forward to bi-lo, publix not so much food lion though but you are so awesome JENNY!!!:)

    • Christy

      Where can I find these ” In ad” coupons fro Bi-Lo, I have NEVER seen store coupons for BI-Lo. Is it in the Wed paper?

      • Rhonda

        The coupons are literally in the ad.

      • Abigail

        I live in Charleston SC and I never got the in ad coupons but this week I did! They’re on a folded piece on the front of the ad, if you got them.

      • Mary

        There are usually some manufacurer coupons in the monthly sales book as well. I always grab a couple everytime I go in and save these for later.

    • Tressa

      Not sure why but I have very few of the coupons listed in the SS and RP papers?? I live in SC. It is frustrating seeing a good deal and having none of the coupons listed except the printable ones. Why is this?

      • Angel

        I live in SC, too (Darlington County). The State paper and the Florence Morning News seem to always be misisng many of the coupons on the Bi-Lo lists. I am trying to find a way to get the Sunday only Charlotte Observer. I have a co-worker who lives to the north, and she offers to get me one, but then forgets even when I give her money.

        I look to ebay and the Coupon Master, when I need multiples for something my family uses alot of.

        • Lyman

          I live in Orangeburg, SC and take the State newspaper from Columbia to get the ads and coupons. Surpise, I don’t get them, they are told which zip codes to put them in. I only took the paper to get the ads and coupons and was going to drive to Columbia to shop at Publix. Oh well.

      • .Jennifer

        Also from SC. It’s pretty simple. Manufacturer’s pay to have their coupons put in the paper. They want the most exposure possible for their $ so they usually put more & better coupons in more populated areas. My mom, many years ago, called The State newspaper to complain about her lack of coupons and the man in charge of that area told her that we get 33% fewer coupons than the large markets. He also told her what #market we are and I don’t remember the number but it put us pretty close to the markets that get the better coupons.

        If it is a great coupon week I either order the Charlotte paper from The St. Andrews news stand (have to order by noon on Friday) or I buy the inserts from http://www.couponsthingsbydede.com.

        We should consider ourselves lucky though… their are some markets that get even less!

    • keb2009

      no prints left for the wish-bone dressing :(

    • Diana Quin

      You listed using the .50 off Dawn coupon on the hand renewal. Is the hand renewal on sale or just the regular Dawn?

      • Nancy

        Regular Dawn only at my store in Statesboro Ga. Hand rtenewal was not included :( !!!

      • Kayla

        Only the regular Dawn was on sale at my Bilo (Greer, SC).

        • Leslie

          I’m in Greer too. Which one do you shop at? I’m having trouble finding what I want there and am considering not even trying anymore. The only one that is a nice is the one on Pelham.

          • Amy L.

            The Bi-Lo on Wade Hampton is coupon friendly. In face, I think the manager there used to be the manager at the one on Pelham.

    • K Wilson

      The Bilo in Goose Creek, SC will not take manufacturer coupons if they have another store’s logo (like Target or Rite Aid). Publix is the best place to shop around this area.

      • Christina S.

        When I have a target manu. coupon (or a slightly expired coupon) I go through the self-checkout and it works just fine. But I do believe that they have a limit on the # you can use on self checkout. I am going to run in after I pick my girls up from school today and get the Kashi pizzas. *Anyhow, I was commenting to let you guys know that if you buy Glade Fragrance Collection candles through the 24th you get a $3-$5 register q off your next bilo purchase* I saw that they had the macintosh apple scent med. sized candle(the one with silver lid) for 3.17, so I bought 2 of them with my 3/2 internet, and SURPRISE, I got a 3 Q for next puchase. Appearantly you get 3 off if you buy 2, 4 if you buy 3, and 5 if you buy 4. Now I must go back and buy more :)

        • Sus

          Isn’t it wrong to use expired coupons?

        • morgan

          It is wrong to intentionally use expired coupons. It’s also wrong to use the self-check line just to get a coupon to go through that a cashier would not normally take. It’s really not fair to the rest of us who play by the rules.

          • Christina S.

            Actually my bilo manager says that they take expired coupons up to 30 days after, it is just easier to go through self-checkout because all cashiers are not always on the same page, and they have to call over the manager and all that jazz. It is hilarious to me how people are so quick on these pages to point out the “bad couponers” who are ruining for the rest of us… know the stores policy and read jenni’s how coupons work (she specifically comments on expired q’s I believe) before trying to judge others!

    • Cindy

      There is a coupon for .75 off 2 Lipton teabags in RP 11/15.

      • Cindy

        Opps nevermind…it’s expired.

    • Lynn

      I went to Bi-Lo on Clemson rd, Cola, and they had some clearanced items. Nature’s Source bathroom cleaner was $1.53 – I used $1 off coupon. Then there was Purex softner 1 Gallon for $2.13. They had some candy on clearance –

      Whoppers movie box – $.50
      Cadbury bars – $.64
      Pria bars – $.50

      They also had ElMonterey burrito’s clearanced for $.59. These are the two pack.

      I did pretty good considering I bought meat – $126.45 worth of groceries for $61.42. My goal is to make at least 50%savings, which I did, so I’m happy.

    • Last week I tried using Campbell soup coupons for Spaghettio’s and it worked. Love an unexpected bargain.

      • Trace

        That is coupon fraud and a really bad idea.

        I am curious why you would use campbells soup coupon for spaghettios? Did you realize beforehand that you were using the wrong coupon? I agree that it is a big no-no. We all make mistakes occassionally but to purposely use the wrong coupon would be fraud.

        • Yikes I thought since it was for a Campbells product it would be OK. Thanks for letting me know otherwise.

    • Samantha

      My Bi-lo has Dr. Pepper for 4/3$ with 55 cent coupons that doubled. I got 2 liters for 23 Cents!

    • TracyB

      I just had to share my frustration.

      I love saving money just like the next person, but some people are taking advantage of “couponing”. For one, some people steal the coupons off of products they are not buying. Yes, it is stealing. I do not see how in the world one person could have coupons to buy 150 of one item! That is insane and I just don’t see an honest way to acquire that many coupons.

      It is also frustrating when I go to a store on the first day of a sale and all sale items are gone. Some people need to think of someone besides themselves!

      If so many do not stop abusing the coupons, then none of us will be able to take advantage of the awesome savings much longer. Why do you think grocery stores have started tightening up their coupon policies?? They know what is going on.

      I just had to vent, especially after seeing the post where the lady had 150 coupons for one item! I mean, come on!

      • To have coupons for 150 of one item, I bought them on ebay. I paid real money for them, that is not stealing. They were clipped from newspapers. Don’t think someone steals just because they have alot of coupons. It just means they know what their family uses alot of and prepare ahead of time! Have you ever heard of buying coupons online?

        • Also, if the store is out of an item, you can get a raincheck. That is what I do when I don’t get an item before they run out.

          • marie

            i have used thecouponclippers.com and i LOVE them! especially weeks when there is one coupon i actually need and use alot of! instead of buyin 5 papers at $2 each its cheaper to order coupons from there and they mail them to me. and i have also used the southernsavers trader on google! if u have the space stock up when u can! otherwise your couponing is pointless. and my bilo will only double 10 coupons/trans but they always allow me to do multiple trans. also use your green recycle bags and u get 5 cent off 4 each bag used :) takes off some of the tax :)

          • Denise

            I’m not sure how large your family is but I am purchasing for 6 weeks. 150 boxes of vegetables does seem like a large amount. I certainly understand that you want to save but when I view my sales papers and decide what I want it is very frustrating to go and find none left. Since I only shop for 6 weeks at a time I am ususally in a position of needing that item by the time it is onsale again, so a raincheck is really not a great option. I certainly do not want to hoard and am in no way insinuating that you are doing so. Just keep in mind how it may appear to others when you have 150 of the same coupons. Jenny had a very good idea in her class. If you need a large quantity just advise your store manager and have them order it for you. This way one person is not depleting the supply. I want to be sure that we can all continue to coupon effectively and am fearful that if we don’t keep the “grey” areas clear it will become more and more difficult to save.

            • Diana Quin

              I’m curious to know why you said the rainchecks won’t help you. If an item is out of stock you ask for a raincheck. Then when the item comes back in, you use the raincheck and the coupon and get it the same price as when it was on sale and you used a coupon. Please don’t criticize others for the amount of items they purchase. You don’t know what they are doing with their purchases. I buy large quantities sometimes, based on how many coupons I have. I also give away a lot of stuff to others that need it.

            • Mary

              I’m curious also about why you don’t like rainchecks. Yes, sometimes with the limit of 10 doubled coupons it can be a pain if you don’t have more than one raincheck, but sometimes my store will even let me double up on the raincheck when used. But, some of my best deals come from rainchecks, even better than the previous b1g1. For instance, this week ALL is on sale $3.99. It saves at least $1.49 off the regular price. I have a raincheck for b1g1 and $2 off coupons which make them FREE. Don’t forget those rainchecks – they are great and don’t expire! And yes, I’ll be buying 14 bottles – if they don’t have them in stock in the back they will order for me. Get to know your managers and cashiers and let them know you are not out to steal but out to feed your family at the best price possible.

        • We have 8 adults in our household, we can easily go through 8 boxes of these veggies a day (just serving dinner)! That is why I buy so many :-) Not to mention packing lunch for work for all of us, we rely on these boxed veggies with our busy lives. 150 boxes might last us 3-4 weeks if we don’t eat them every day, but we usually do :-)

      • Lee

        I buy lots of coupons for frozen vegetables from thecouponclippers.com. I usually have 40 coupons on hand at any given time. When vegetables go on sale, I talk to the grocery manager at my local Publix and put in an order for vegetables to arrive on their next shipment truck. They are happy to help me because I am not wiping their shelves clean; forcing them to issue rainchecks. They also let me use all the coupons that I have for the vegetables. The coupons I buy are manufacturer’s coupons that come from the Sunday paper. They are not “blinkies” or “peelies” and were not stolen. I am an honest couponer and I work within the rules set by my store. Since my family has vegetables every night, this is the cheapest and most effective way I can think of to save me money while still leaving product on the shelves for other shoppers.

    • Kristen

      my bi-lo had the marcal small steps facial tissues for $1.27. after using the free or $1.00 off small steps they were $0.27. two boxes are coming in handy especially since my family has colds.

      • Jamie

        my bi-lo (mauldin sc)they were on sale for $1.20 and the cashier game me them for free, she didn’t see that the max was $1 off. I didn’t notice that until I went home to log my grocery savings on my spreadsheet, yay! :) We use a lot of tissues too!

      • Sue

        I bought several boxes of these tissues as well but would hate to have to use them if I had a cold….not the softest tissues I have ever tried!!!

      I had a nice surprise at Bilo on Greenville St. in Anderson, SC. Unlike most of the local stores, they accepted a manu. cpn from Target. I used it on the Stouffer’s Meal Deal. But, then I was in for a bigger surprise when I got home and went over my receipt.

      I was charged for all the free items with the Meal Deal and the Buy Brand and get SH for free. And, yes, they did scan my Bilo card.

      I was also shorted on two $1 coupons.

      So back to the store tomorrow to get $17.00+ returned.

      When I called to explain the situation, the manager was very nice so I shouldn’t have any trouble.

      This also happened to me at Ingles in Belton, SC. Similar amount was overcharged. I also have two packages of pork chops that I should have returned. The package of these I cooked were close to spoiled. I just hated to go in there again with another problem. But that is another matter altogether.

      Are registers set up to mess up at just about $17.00? Is there something in people’s psyche about that number? Just enough, but not too much? I need to go to bed!

    • sheila

      The wunderbar bologna is on sale at the deli for $1.99 a pound and the deli has a coupon for .75¢ off one pound. My bilo doubles up to .75¢ so I got 1 pound of bologna for .49¢.

      • Lynn

        ooo, where are you? Doubles up to $.75 is great!

        • Jana

          My BiLo here in Lincolnton, NC doubles $.75 coupons…yay!

          • christi

            Charlotte area bilo’s double up to 99 cents!

    • Melissa

      Does anyone know if Chef Boyardee Bowls are included in sale so we can use .40/1 and get them for .20? Because it says canned. Thanks

    • TracyB

      Laura, I want to apologize to you. I did not mean to insinuate that you were stealing. I could just not imagine how someone could have 150 coupons. Now I know, and I did not even think of Ebay, so I am sorry :) I just get really frustrated at some of the people that DO commit coupon fraud and mess it up for the rest of us. I am aware though, that most of us are honest. I stand corrected and the next time when I am frustrated, I will think before I type :)

      • morgan

        Good for you Tracy! It’s nice to see it come full circle :)

    • Peggy

      I am very new to couponing, but I am loving it!! I am confused on how some of the items are shown to be “free”.

      Dawn dish detergent, 10.3 oz regular or 14 oz Non-Concentrate, $1 ea
      -.50/1 Dawn plus hand renewal PG 1/17, PG 12/27 (makes it FREE)
      -.25/1 Dawn dish soap PG 12/27 (makes it 50¢)

      How does this item go from $1 to free with only a .50/1 coupon (it is not B1G1)? Your expertise and guidance would be much appreciated.

      • Peggy

        Duh!! I just noticed that Bi-Lo has double manufacturers coupons…that would make it free, huh?

      • Meme

        Peggy, the reason the item is free with a .50 coupon is due to Bi-lo doubling coupons up to .60. Some (as you see in the above postings) double for more than that. Wish I had one of those stores close by. Occasionally Bi-lo will triple coupons, so now that you are more aware of couponing you will catch those times.

        Happy couponing!

        • Peggy

          Thanks for the information. Is this something that Bi-Lo and Publix just do occasionally? Is it always listed on the front page of their weekly sales papers? I tried looking this information up on their websites, but I got nowhere fast!

          • Sue

            Don’t know where you shop Peggy but here in TN Bi-Lo and Publix double coupons all the time.

    • post cereal are runing apromotion looks like because today i bought four boxes of post and i got 3 dollars from the catalina for my next shopping order besides that post coupon 1 on 2 .

    • Jen

      Does anyone here live in the N.Myrtle Beach area that does the fuel perks? I can not find a gas station the one on the bi-lo web site in Little River says it does but they dont have it set up! help!
      Thanks, Jen

    • Denise

      I just left BiLo and realized that the cashier forgot to scan my Bonus Card. Can Customer Service do anything to reimburse me?

      • Mary T

        Yes, take your receipt and card and they will give you cash back for the difference. Most stores will even do this if you forgot a coupon.

    • Gena

      I recently went to the cleveland tn bilo and noticed that pampers we on sale fo 7.99. I am always looking for great diaper deals and I might have overlooked this on your list or other comments but if not its a great deal with the 2.00 off coupon that is out there especially for pampers and I noticed that it was on all types of pampers even the new over night protection.

      • Astrid

        Yes! All the Pampers are on sale for $7.99! I was excited that the overnight protection ones were included in the sale, Target always excludes them. It was actually on the the front page of their ad, otherwise I don’t think I would have noticed. I love how Pampers has been putting out better coupons lately. They used to always just be for $1. Now they’re $2 and they even sent me a $3 off recently. Hurray for cheap Pampers!

        • Deana

          I was also excited bout the $7.99 for pampers. I don’t have any babies but a friend was wanting Pampers for her shower and that made my gift to her even cheaper with the coupon for $2off. I am gonna buy 3 bags because at that price, it still is cheaper than store brand diapers! Woo hoo for SouthernSavers!

    • Barbara

      I have a printout (from Bilo) that says starting 1/25 and going thru 2/21 when you buy pillsbury refrigerated dough products you get money back.
      Ex: Buy 4 get $2
      Buy 5 get $3
      Buy 6 get $4

      I think I will stock up on some crescent rolls this coming week I have plenty of Qs and with the money back it will be worth it! Just thought I would share this with everyone…………

      • Anne

        Was it printed out on the receipt or a flyer? I’d like more information on this :)

        • Sue

          I noticed a couple of weeks ago that Bi-Lo and Food Lion had the same catalina promos. this is listed on FL’s list here:

          I emailed Bi-Lo and asked if they had a list that we could access. Here is an exert from their reply.

          “Regarding your inquiry on Catalina coupons, any Catalina promotions that we would make public can be found on our website (www.bi-lo.com) under promotions. This will list all promotions we have running chain wide – some won’ t say they are Catalina, but some of them are the Catalina programs.”

          I translate this to mean that they do not want to tell us about all of them, because the only one I have seen in their flyer was the one for Kraft cheese, but last week they also had one for Nabisco 100 calorie snacks. What do you guys think?

          • Barbara

            It was printed on a catalina. Unfortunately the register didn’t spit out my $4 coupon so I took it to customer service and they honored the catalina and gave me a raincheck for 4 dollars! (Since it was the 1st day of the promotion maybe it wasn’t in the system yet? I don’t know how these things work but I get the same catalinas for other stores sometimes, as well. I got a catalina for Glade products from Walgreens and Bi-lo a few weeks ago….

            Also, I noticed the pillsbury pie crusts were B1G1 so I got 4 and used Qs on those!! The whole thing worked out to be a pretty good deal so I hope it works for all of you who try it!!

      • Jana

        I got the same Catalina at Harris Teeter!

    • Amy B.

      My store had Earthgrains Sandwich Thins on sale for $2.50. This isn’t a spectacular price but each one had peelies for 55¢ off and there was also a tearpad on the display for $1 off produce. Ended up saving $2.10 with those coups and paying 40¢!

      Also, they had holiday Archway cookies for $2, with a 55¢ peelie so those were only 90¢!

    • Pauline

      I live in Vidalia, GA & I want to thank the nice lady that told my husband about this site. I used to do a lot of this coupon clipping years ago when I lived on the west coast. Back in those days your double coupons ( and sometimes triple) were clipped out of the stores weekly sale paper. When I moved to the south everything was so different and I couldn’t seem to find the ‘deals’ I found back in California. Eventually, I just ended up slacking off. Now once I get a handle on the ins & outs, all I can say is: “I’M BACK!! LOL

      I also want to say how much I enjoy these little conversations on each store site. It helps me to learn and to understand. So thanks to everyone for taking the time to share & ask & answer. God Bless!

    • Michelle

      I have been having trouble using the manufacturer’s coupons with the Target logo lately. I have been to two different Bi-Lo’s and they both say they can’t accept them. Could you tell me what Bi-Lo’s policy is so that I wont be debating the cashiers over this? Thank you so very much.

      • Sue

        The copy of their polcy that I have says nothing about competitor’s coupons. I never try to use them because, if I understand things correctly, they will not get reimbursed for them. I feel that I save enough with BOGO’s and coupons that they will accept and I do not want to jeopardise that. I am afraid that one day things will change due to those who do not follow the rules. The store may get reimbursed for the coupons that they do accept, but they also have to pay someone to process them. I’m sure this is where the extra 8¢ goes. Please do not think that I am saying that you do not follow the rules. By posting the question, you indicate that you do follow them. But there are many who do not.

    • Michelle

      I just let a comment and forgot to mention something. I also was not able to use the coupon for the Pepperidge Farm bread that was free with the Stouffers deal. The lady said that it was already free to me so they couldn’t accept it. Aren’t they getting their money back from the manufacturer? I dont want to make a big deal about this or ask the manager to help if they aren’t supposed to accept it but I have been able to use this before with no problems. I guess I just need to know their company policy. Thanks!

      • Sue

        I have a “favoite” cshier at my Bi-Lo who is very coupon-friendly. She gets excited to see how much money I save. I always look for her and go to her line if she is there. If have a situation like this, I ask her to scan my BonusCard last (or you could “lose” it for a few minutes). This way, the free items have not come off yet, so the register does not beep.

    • Just wanted to mention that I noticed that Fuze Bottled (18.5 oz.) drinks were on sale 4/$5 ($1.25). I found that I had a couple of $.55 manufacturer coupons for them (18.5 oz.) that should double making them $.15 each. I am not sure where I got them but I just wanted to let people know in case you had them too.

    • Barbara

      My Bilo also had the Marcal napkins for 2.00 a pack (150) and the coupon holder installed in that isle had 55cent off Q’s in it! SO I got 2 packs of napkins for 1.80!! It was the Bilo in Ft Oglethorpe GA by KMart…..There were still Qs left in the dispenser after I took 2 of them……….:):)

    • Carla

      I just got back from my BiLo. There are men all over the store scanning stuff. They are putting red dots every where. Half of the beauty products are gone. Most of the other items are half off! I am wondering if my store is going under.

      • elizabeth elrod

        sounds like an inventory

      • Mary

        Be on the lookout for some clearance

    • Meme

      I want to send a word of commendation to the customer service rep (maybe mngr, not sure) at Bi-lo on Greenville St in Anderson, SC. She has been so patient with me and my couponing efforts. She has reimbursed me for missed coupons, helped when something on my receipt rang up wrong, etc.

      Today she looked into why my free items on the meal deal rang up on my receipt from last Friday. She finally realized the problem was the lasagne was Southern Home brand instead of Stouffer’s. I got it from the cooler with all the meal deal items there. She said sometimes people put things in the wrong place to keep from walking the extra few feet to put it back in the proper place. She added up the “free” items and gave the money to me right then and there. As if the mistake was Bi-lo’s and not mine. Sooo nice!

      When I told her I ended up at home with three Oikos instead of Chobani yogurts (which are on sale) and paid over $5 for three yogurts she said to bring them back if they are still within the expiration date. Wow! That is great customer service!

      It keeps me coming back to the store with the nice staff. Give them a raise! Meme

    • Cassandra

      I had a pretty good shopping trip tonight :) I love my Super Bilo on laurens rd and will gladly pass three other bilos to go there. They take my coupons happily, are patient and friendly and there’s a nice little coffee/conference area that’s usually empty or near empty that I can park my cart and go through my coupons and be out of everyones way and still be sure I’m ok.

    • Angela

      So, tonight was my first big trip with coupons “southern savers style” SUCCESS!! I purchased $128.68 worth of groceries for $56.86 that’s a savings of $72.95!!! I took my boyfriend with me and he is as excited as I am! He no longer thinks I’m a nut well at least not for that reason! THANK YOU Southern Savers!!

    • I want to brag on the bi lo in Boiling Springs , SC.
      The managers and cashiers are all coupon friendly .
      They double up to 60 cents and do not limit the number of coupons used.
      Haven’t heard anyone mention that bilo honors 5 cents per bag you use off of your transaction. This is any canvas bag you bring from home.
      I too appreciate Jenny and the web site. I’m a pastor’s wife and have been able to help many women and referred them to this site.
      Web sites that offers samples, freebies and coupons:
      hiptosave.com, couponingtodisney.com, vocalpoint.com

    • Cereal.com is another good web site for samples, freebies and coupons.

    • ChattMom

      Where are the following bargains listed in the Bilo ad?

      I just left Bilo and noticed that I did not get these deals honored.

      • samantha

        Those require coupons printed from Bilo’s website.

      • Sue

        I do not know if they are in the paper ad or not but they are on Bi-Lo.com. If you are not registered for “My Bi-Lo”, you may have to, but then you can print the coupons to get the deals.

    • Kim

      Is there a limit on the Meal Deals?

      • Sue

        This will probaly depend on your cashier, but I have seen on here that it is one per transaction, or one per day.
