Mod Edit: This will become the new Northern California Grocery Stores Thread.

Thank you to missusg and mcube for starting up threads for the individual stores for Northern California.

Due to how the timestamp works - it is with apologies to mcube (who started the Lucky thread) that your post is now #141 -- When a thread is merged the posts go in timestamp order.

Please note that there is a 30 day rule for reps -- so any post greater than 30 days old cannot be repped.

This message to remain for the next 24 hours so that our NoCal users can get used to this. Smilie

I haven't been CVSing much since the babies came, but I need a few birthday cards and noticed the ECB deal at CVS this week. Can someone tell me if the 99cent cards work or if I need to get the $1.99/$2 ones? Thank you!

I saw on a blog that the .99 cent DO work, but I haven't tried it yet. I go the .99 a few weeks ago with this ECB offer, and it did work. HTH.

I haven't done the deal myself, but earlier in the week I saw reports that the 99cent cards do work. Plus, use this FB coupon for $2 off 3 cards (Hallmark):

Thank you both! I really appreciate it. I'll give the .99 cards a try. (Looks like the FB Q has run out of prints, but thank you!)

Hallmark Facebook promotion has been extended thru 06/30/13. bounce
Working link for Hallmark IP (SD adds garbage to our links, so I am making this non-clickable. Copy/paste url, it will work.):

facebook.com/tellthem?sk=app_343995562285797

Printing tips: bulb
- Cpn prints with 31 days rolling expiration date.
- Current limit is 1 print per computer, however:
--- cpn code is generic, print to pdf and reuse;
--- next time change your IP and get a new print with later exp. date.

Last month there was a date typo in fine print and clerks-who-read-coupons refused to accept them. Hallmark fixed the error, and currently cps are good.

At CVS:
- These used to scan fine, but now are beeping on a purchase of 3 x 99c cards.
- Allow cashiers to read all details and it should be pushed thru. If not - ask for manager.
- Warning: there are 2 barcodes on coupon. If the one on right side (labeled "for use at Hallmark stores") is scanned at CVS - it will CHARGE you $2. EEK!

Deal tip for CVS:
Current RIB magazine has B3G1F CVS cpn (up to $2.50).
Buy 4 cards (3 x .99 for EB offer, 4th nicer one free with cpn).

~HTH~

Kohl's - Bounce back coupon

Today I received a $10/10 bounce back coupon for spending $20 or more (pre-tax). It is good Dec 4-8, in-store only. Hopefully we'll get a $10/30 peelie to stack with this!!!

Thank you Grail! THat is awesome info about the HAllmark deal at CVS.

Jpow - I have not heard of this bounce back coupon. I was wondering why there were so many $10 off $10 at kohl's for sell on fleabay (at ridiculous prices). Those must be them?

I am hoping for a $10 off $30 soon too.

cvs 30% off took 1.45 off $150+ transaction
about $30 worth was on sale
I would say that we are in the "region" where it doesn't work on ecb-producing items
Sadwalk
and all kinds of other issues
this store used to take expired CRTs but no longer does. I guess that's nat'l policy now
not a great night

went to NH to ue $20 CAT from Lowe's GC deal
no disclaimer about dairy
bought $8 worth of milk
$14 meat
had about $17 more in cart in case milk didn't work
scanned Qs then 20CAT-took off $0
remove $4 milk, added all $17 and still had to be pushed thru
($8was kelloggs -$6 Qs so I needed it all to get over $20)
I thought the Qs would cover the cost of milk, but in the end I paid $3xx

then I get home, go to put milk away & sounds like a maraca. it was frozen! called # on receipt, which is corp BTW- and they called store. they were aware of issue and I can return it Was very strange, as I did CVS run after NH and it had been in the car for a long time. Wondered if we had a cold snap while I was shopping
How did I not pick up on it when I took it from the shelf?

Staples has 10% off one item Q -thru tomommow IIRC
adn there were 2 FAMIR items thru today
read 9.99, get 9.99 and 6.99 -$3 get 3.99
I had $12 Rewards to cash out, sounded perfect
except the -$3 is a 2nd rebate on the same item
I still get it all back but just another step on the path of confusion tonight was...

ETA: NH/Kelloggs
several boxes had the movie code-haven't seen those for awhile
frosted flakes, choc & blueb. mini-wheats, crunchy nut
and on front display I found a bunch of Krispies with free m&ms stickers! (b2cereal, g 1 M&M)
I think next week (12/9) CVS has Krispies 1.99,& M&Ms are 2.50 b10g3. If the stars are aligned and can use both 1.50IP & free M&Ms Qs, should be 3.96 for 8 krispies, 4 M&M, get back 3ecb

Maybe it was from that icy look you gave them at the store.LMAO But I know what you mean; everything seems to be a bit wonky lately.
