Welcome to the NEW Official Giant Food (DC, DE, MD, VA) Deals thread! Smilie

This thread is for the Giant Food stores located in Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. For those in PA, WV, along the I-81 corridor (around Winchester to Waynesboro) in VA, and Hagerstown/Eldersburg, MD please check out the Giant of Carlisle PA based chain's SD thread, Official GiantPA (PA, MD, VA, and WV) Thread.

I'm a man with limited time and will do what I can to keep this thread going the best way I know how. I can't do it alone so... If ANYONE has an interest in helping to post flyer/coupon matchups (or even just one or the other) or just sweeping the posts for other matchups, sales, coupons, or catalina deals to copy to the Wiki with credits given to the posters, PLEASE let me know. You will be aptly recognized (repped) for your assistance.

I know we are going through some growing pains now that we have our own Giant thread. Let's work together to make this one of the top threads on SD!

Thanks,
Kevin

For anyone that was going to make a last minute meat run, don't forget some SoBe to wash it down. BOGO and here's a Bricks BOGO MQ. First link is FF, second IE. I printed 6 coupons, bought 14 bottles and paid for 2. Meat Q did require intervention.

And um yeah why not just keep the thread that was started yesterday? Restarting the thread everytime there might be a little grousing is going to cause MORE confusion and possibly some animosity.

I know, I know... I didn't make the decision. In any case, I think we can get comfy in our new Giant "home" as there should not be any more changes. Will be back in a couple hours to fix it up.

Did anyone ever find the Sabra at Giant? It was reported that it was BOGOF at S&S but I didn't find it at 2 of my stores, so I was never able to check. There was also a $1.50 IP on Smartsource for it making it uber cheap. TIA

I found it! It was in the fridge section at the end of the produce dept. Sabra hummus is SO SO good. I am going back tonight to get another 6!

Thanks so much for the link. I think I'll print it later since it looks like I won't be able to go tonight.

Who does make these decisions then? Moderators? I admit I haven't figured out all the politics on this site. Weird that first Giant was kicked off the joint thread and then a new thread was started and now is gone. Perhaps I'll just go back to reading the SW thread where things seem to be more copacetic.

P.S. I saw the Sabra hummus in the speciality cheese cases near the deli counters at my Giant.

Giant wasn't kicked out, there was a poll taken by SD users, not moderators..and the result was that the threads be separated. Although there was a delay is making the change.....the time finally arrived. I started the new thread to make the transition quickly yesterday, but we decided that it would be best that someone that shopped at Giant head up the thread. No harm done...it really isn't a big deal as there wasn't anything major posted yet.

I appreciate all that is done to keep the site moving and I know no one means any ill but imo I think the concern comes in that the poll was apparently done months ago and the threads split sometime Tuesday/ Wednesday with little warning. For me, it would have been nice to have a countdown or something somewhere to let people know about the upcoming changes. Maybe the poll could have been reposted (I know, again) to allow more people to see it.

First off - my apologies specifically to Mastiff Mom and DawnFlowers2 I have been bothered by this all day and I truly did not mean to offend the two of you! I have nothing but the utmost respect for you guys!

Paperbag I'm aware that my last post - which was posted as an innocent pat on the back to the the Giant shoppers - came across wrong and I stirred the pot a little. I will try and be a little more careful this time with what I say - so here goes.

I did not have a chance to look over the poll that was linked to the other thread and I can't seem to find it now - but honestly when was the poll actually taken? Was it prior to the S&S/Giant Thread becoming more active or was it recent and I just missed it? Amorantin clearly states in the WIKI - "I was one of those that wanted separate threads but never got in on the original vote (which voted 2 to 1 for a split). .....a number of others were in favor and when I brought up the fact that the vote was many months ago with no action, the action finally was done."

It doesn't seem that the current members of the thread were actually given an opportunity to participate in the poll - it comes across as the minority using old data to accomplish a set agenda - and with it a lot of hard feelings have surfaced. Frown The benefit of starting the new thread will then be lost as posters will no longer contribute.

Would it be a lost cause to have another poll? Or to merge them back and have Dawn and Amorantin co lead the thread??!!??
