      Yahoo! 1 quart is usually plenty to stripe a wall! Order it in high gloss and stipe away! Thanks everybody!

      Oops! It only comes in eggshell. still a great deal though!

      Thank you so much for the heads-up on the paint! I called and requested the permission from family members to use their address and info to have a paint can sent to their house for me, so in total I am getting 5! Maybe I can finally get the projects finished that are sitting in my basement- and a quart each is just what I need! I’m excited! Thank you for all you do!

      Glidden deal is over but they are offering a $5 MIR

      It’s quickly curtains on any promotion posted on Southern Savers because someone always goes ahead and gets 5. ;-)

    • Hmm, yep, no paint left for me. :-(

    • Rx savings

      I googled Nasacort AQ (it’s a RX nasal spray for allergies) and found a coupon on their home page that takes $20 off of my co-pay every month for 12 months. My co-pay is $20, so it’s free all year! That’s cheaper than switching to a generic! I told my doctor about it and he gave me coupons for several other RX’s that my family is on. He said several drug companies have coupons that bring your copay down to a generic co-pay or cheaper.

    • Wow the paint went quick! At least I got my one free quart… Enough to do an accent wall I guess

    • Books a million also had a ton of clearance books!! I got about 7 of them for my baby sister for under $30.00!

      I’m just curious why people think its acceptable to request more of a sample then one? The person above said they called family members so they could get 5 free cans. That approach simply ruins it for others! Companies have so many of whatever sample they are putting out there based on marketing and budgets. It is nice that they provide samples. However, the greed of the public has caused some problems with samples. It drives me nuts! First of all, request 1 sample of the product. And if you are not going to use it, donate it, or give it to someone you know then don’t bother! Let someone else get the free sample!

      I got my 1 free sample. And just in time! My husband and I are remodeling our entire house and we are having a hard time choosing a color for our guest bedroom. Of course, the color I really wanted, the samples were gone. But, I got my ssecond choice. :)

      the glidden giveaway was on a national tv commercial, so i don’t know that it’s particularly fair to blame the quick sell out on a few over-zealous southernsavers users…… more likely it was the millions of people who saw the commercials. i logged on as soon as i saw the commercial and ordered my 1.
