More New Features & Giveaway

on 9.22.2009 at 4:00pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.


I get so many emails asking for new features or small changes and I’m happy to say that I have tackled two more of your requests today.

First, comments are now “nested”. For those non web savvy folks that really means that now you can reply directly to a person’s question in the comments and it will show up under their comment rather than 30 comments below their question!!


Second, I have created a new Facebook page for Southern Savers. This is different from the fan page we have had for a while (thanks MelRae for creating that one!).  This new page will show any new content on Southern Savers right in your news feed in Facebook.  I can also add events to remind you about upcoming time sensitive freebies.  The best part though if you have a great deal you can add it right to the wall!

Since so many manufacturers think it’s fun to giveaway things when they hit X number of fans, I think we should have some fun too.  If Southern Savers can get 2000 fans by next Tuesday, 9/29 at 3pm, then I will giveaway (6) $50 Grocery gift cards to Facebook fans.

To enter this giveaway become a Fan of Southern Savers.  Winners will be chosen from the fan list.

Remember, this is a new page, so if you became a fan in the past you need to do it again!

    • What a wonderful giveaway, thanks for the opportunity. I’ve become a fan!

    • Kris

      OK I have a question. If you already have an account on Facebook, why do I need to set up another one?

      • Stella

        You don’t need to get a new account; you just need to become a fan of the new southern savers page.

      • Sherry M

        Once you click Jenny’s link, look in the top right hand corner to sign in to your normal facebook page. Then you will see a button to “Become a Fan”. You don’t have to have a new account.

    • Laura

      I just joined and was #612. I can’t see how you won’t get 2000 by next week!

      • Sherry M

        I was #630. She’ll reach 2000 probably by tomorrow night. Thursday at the latest! Yeah!!!!

      • Linda

        I joined a few hours ago and was #80 something, so it is happening quickly already! Thanks for all that you do, Jenny!!!

    • 1288 Fans at 8:07 pm CST!

      Love the changes – enjoyed being able to go directly to a section in Publix. I do a lot of backtracking so this was awesome! Is it possible to add a way to jump to comments as well? Sometimes I want to go back to a link or something and it’s a long way to the comments list!

      • Beth

        Right under the title of a post, it says “Comments” and has a number in blue (which is the number of comments) If you click on that number, it takes you directly to the comments and you don’t have to scroll through the entire post. Hope this helps!

    • Wendy

      Awesome! Love the nesting comments feature, and LOVE that you’re on Facebook now. I check SouthernSavers and Facebook each several time daily, so now two great world have melded into one!

    • Kandrea

      I became a fan on FB this afternoon…thanks for the fun give-away!

    • 1461 fans at 8:41 pm (CDT) – I don’t think 2000 will be a problem!

    • Beth

      Yay Jenny! I love the nested comments and love that new posts will show up on my Facebook feed! I usually track blogs in Google Reader and for some reason can’t track yours there. I love that I will be able to “track” it on FB! Thank you for all you do for our families!

    • 1639 at 9:20 pm (CDT) – you might just hit it tonight!! How awesome would that be??

    • Amanda

      1652! Jenny, you’re famous!

    • 2000 by next Tuesday? How about breaking that mark by the end of tonight! Holy cow! Go Jenny, go!!!!

    • Julie

      I’m thinking Jenny has underestimated how many people love her blog…

    • Mina

      Ha ha! Way to go! But this is one giveaway of yours that I’ll pass. I haven’t joined FB even at my own mother’s urging. I’m better off NOT having even more shopping pages to keep up with than I already do. So, I’ll politely decline entering, and simply wish you much luck. (You really don’t need it. You’re doing quite well.) :-)

    • Stacy

      I have to agree that you won’t make it until Tuesday!
      #1940 @ midnight!

    • Amy

      Thanks so much for all of your freebies and giveaways! I hope I can take advantage of your GIFT .. but if not .. you still bless my socks off! :)

    • Cheri

      I just checked and you already have over 2000 fans!

    • New at This

      Wow! That definitely didn’t take a week did it?!

    • Patricia

      Jenny….did you underestimate how POPULAR you are….how about 2000 in 24 hours? :-)

    • Amanda

      yay! I see you are well over 2,000 already. Thanks Jenny! I would totally have joined even if you werent doing the great giveaway!

    • Bella

      Definitely a fan, a convert, and love to share your site with others of frugal minds. Thanks!

    • Jenny

      I am number 3,568. Blew that 2,000 mark out of the water, Jenny!

    • Jen S

      I may be #3814 but you’re #1 to me and all of my coupon girlfriends!
