    • Jenny, you are brilliant! Thank you for all of the time and hard work you put into this!! I hope you know how much it helps so many families!

      I thought the Purex deal at CVS is starting next week?

    • Trish

      The Kraft BBQ sauce and Mentos gum are free at Bi-Lo also.

      Thanks for your hard work!!

    • Mina

      The best price that I know of for soft drinks this week is Kroger. The store brands are $1.68/12 pk. cans. This is their rock bottom, lowest price of the season price.

    • Brandi

      I got a good deal on Cokes at CVS, B4 get 5th one free for $13 – used 5 of the Coke IP’s – Paid $8 for 5 x 12 packs…I of course paid with ECb’s. LOL

    • Lauren

      Do you get ECBs on all of the items listed in CVS circular? Or is there a way to find a list of items that give you ECBs?

    • Lizel

      I am having alot of trouble at my local publix. They will not let me us Food Lion or Target coupons. They are saying it has to be right around the corner to be a competitor. Does anybody have any advice? I have talk to the district manager and he pretty much said the same thing. HELP!!

    • Hi Jenny – someone has probably already mentioned this, but here’s a link for free samples and coupons: http://www.all-bran.com/?gclid=CN6Kz5KyupoCFRFWagodclkUcw#/current-offers

    • Mina

      Lizel, only SOME Publix allow the use of Target coupons because regular Targets are not considered competitors. It is normal for Publix stores to only accept coupons from other grocery stores that are actually LOCAL competitors. So, some areas, particularly ones with SuperTargets nearby, will accept those. If Food Lion is a local grocer, it’s reasonable for them to accept those, but if there are no local Food Lions, then they are not a competitor, and the store shouldn’t be expected to take them.

    • Mina

      Jenny, I think the new “Need it Now” and “Top Grocery Deals” entries are my favorite part of your site. The comparisons are very helpful.

    • Lisa

      Need it Now is PERFECT! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    • Honey

      What a great idea! Thanks!

    • beth

      Why can’t I find a site like this for me up in the northeast? I love this site, but have none of the supermarkets in my area. None of the other sites can hold a candle to you, Jenny. At least I can benefit from the drugstores

    • Michelle

      I love the Need it now resource as well — KMART has Pepsi 12pks on sale 4/$9 — I would like to see reports on Piggly Wiggly here as well. We have several in our town. We have one BiLo and a few Food Lions. Publix was a rumor that diminished. Sumter SC

        I would love to cover the Pig for all our SC readers but frustratingly they are individually operated so sales and polcies vary by each store. Wouldn’t do anyone any good :(
