No go at my Ralphs. Cashier said they have a company wide policy that they shouldn't take any free IP Q anymore.
Interesting, last Ralph's trip our cashier commented WOW how did you score all those free item coupons???? And the two college kids behind us were freaking out as our total went from $50.56 to $6.64.

I went back to Vons today and all of this stuff is still on sale!!!
Another one

Dentyne gum is 1.00 so free after 1.00 mfr q
Sorry but why waste that Q at Von's? Dentyne is 3/.99 at Wags. Makes it 3 packs FREE instead of 1.

I don't do Wags. Its ALWAYS a big giant hassle everytime I go in. I have tried and I just cannot do hassles every single time. If I even attempted to do the gum, they would give me the "we cannot adjust coupon down to the price bla bla bla". Then I would have to ask to speak to the manager who would then confirm that "no they cannot do that because loss prevention told them not to". Then I would have to ask to speak to the store manager who would then also say "no we cannot do that , because that would be coupon fraud, bla bla bla." so then I would have to call Walgreens customer service, they would actually agree with me and call the store manager who is supposed to call me and apologize. But a week goes by and I do not hear anything. So I have to call cust service again. Then store manager does call me and tells me that "yes we can take the coupon, I am sorry I thought we could not because that is what loss prevention told us". So if you will come in to shop, we will honor your coupon. By now the Dentyne is not on sale anymore. But Stride gum is on sale for 50 cents and I have a one dollar coupon, so I try to use that coupon and I get the whole "we cannot adjust the coupon down to the price bla bla bla!!!!"
ARRRGGHHH, no thanks, I am soooo done with walgreens. Plus I am sure alll the Wags shoppers are happy, I wont be there competing for deals. I still have a 5 dollar gift card from the above scenario, but I just cannot bring myself to go there.
I actually did try to go again a few weeks ago when they had some kind of body wash for free after rr. But the body wash was out of stock, so I asked for a raincheck. They told me "no we cannot give you a raincheck for anything that prints a rr. I just got frustrated and said "This is why I dont shop here anymore!!!!" and left the store!!
No no thanks on the gum, I will gladly go to Vons and get my 1 pack of for free, with no hassles!!!!

Keep an eye out at Chick-fil-A... at some stores, they have cow "hats" (cardboard thingies that wrap around your head like the old burger king crowns) that you can wear on Friday to get a free sandwich. If you dress like a cow from head-to-toe you get an entire meal for free. Tomorrow (Thurs) is free 8ct. nuggets. AND check your receipts! Twice today I got a coupon on my receipt for a free chicken sandwich for completing an online survey.

I don't really know how they stay in business! LOL!

It is definately a hassle. U did forget this tho....

So I got all these RRs. I can't get just one thing with my RR even tho I owe money cuz I want to use another coupon so I had to add in another item which I don't want.

And if I happen to have a bunch of $1's or $2's then omg...... I want to buy just one thing that costs $6.99 but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I have to keep adding things (that I don't want) just to use more than one RR and now i have an extra three cans of pork and beans, two puddings, a pringles that was on clearance, and some stupid pencils (and i have no kids at home and never use pencils but they were out of the free probably crummy pens) and this took me an hour to figure out all cuz I had to have a certain number of items. Oh and I woulda bought three puddings instead of the two puddings and pringles but if I bought three, then they weren't 39 cents each, they were $3/$1 and that made me short a penny.

But............ albies and ralphs take Wags RRs without any problem at all and no issues with adding extra items and they go towards tax. Used a bunch of my $2's on some lamb this morning that was marked down (date) and it was something that I had been waiting to get a decent price on. Used more in the last couple weeks at albies and ralphs on rib eye steaks.

If it weren't for grocers taking RRs, I would forget wags completely. (well that and i still have money on a gc from their old rebate days).

LOL, yeah I was gonna add all that in too!!! Thats exactly the same scenario, OMG you were behind me inline!!! The same exact merchandise and everything. ok now its coming back to me, thats why I tried it again a few weeks ago, I had read all about how Vons was gonna take the rr's. ok, I will just go in grab some bodywash and then go get some stuff at Vons. but no that simple simple tranny could not even happen!!! But hey if Ralphs will take those rr's then maybe just maybe...... NO NO what am I thinking NO!!!
I did go in for a Mother's day gift card. I had some of those old gift cards leftover from the ESR rebate days and I used them on a Red LObster gift card!!! muhahahah

I have to say it takes me a LONG time to get my stuff done at Wags. During the body wash deal I had to fight some KID to buy two body washes (with my bogo coupon). I got so upset, I was waving my coupons and telling this KID this is why this particular wags isn't open 24 hours any more and in case he didn't notice, I'm the ONLY customer in the place and there are lots of employees all lollygagging around. (didn't use that word tho).

He LET me use the coupon but told me in the future I would have to return on SATURDAY AFTERNOON or EVENING to see if maybe they had two body washes IF I hadn't bought any at ANY wags all week! and IF they had it in stock still I would need TWO people present to buy it. LOL!

Wags closer to my house is higher priced on everything that doesn't have a specific price in the ad. 50 cents on this item, quarter on that one, etc really adds up.

Cvs used to be my fav store but then the state went after them on taxing cvs coupons and the oop has really added up on the tax I have to pay.

Rite aid is actually the easiest to deal with lately (prob change when the cat is out of the bag).

Btw...... did u know rite aid employees are union? They all were getting extra pay on the 4th of july. Stopped in a rite aid on the way home from the angels game and omg........ never seen so many people buying beer. Next year..... note to self. Park yourself near the drug store with the best ad on beer and wait for the customers to dump their box and receipt near the trash can and send in for the rebates. LOL!

LOL at the beer trash can rebates!!! But a dang good idea!!! Yeah CVS WAS my fav store but now no not as many good deals and the having to pay waaaayy to much tax. I only have $ 4.00 ecb's left. Rite aid is my new love, they are soooo nice to me so far. I so love the vv q's. Which is such a shock to me ,because 2 years ago I would not have foreseen
myself loving Rite-aid so much. I thought me and CVS would be married forever.

Well........ I won't go digging into a trash can and it was too late by the time I got to Rite Aid after the game, but in the past I have found quite a few boxes with receipts inside (when cvs had that really good price on bud lite a couple summers ago for the entire summer) sitting in shopping carts near the store exit. I am guessing they took the cans out and threw them in a cooler or drank some in the lot and left the box.

There are not so good rite aids tho and i suspect when wind of their program gets around to those who made nice cashiers into witches at cvs, rite aid won't be so nice any more.

For now tho they have had some absolutely awesome deals! AND the 10-20% off when u get to 500-1000 points leaped them over cvs.

yeah I am still at 10 percent but I only need about 30 more points to get to 20 percent, then I will feel like I am in the big time!!!!

Back to some good deals at Vons:
They had Nilla wafers for 1.99 with super q, I had a 55 off bananas wyb nilla wafers mfr q so the wafers are .99 cents!
Avocados .99 each use 1.00/2 mfr q ( I think it was from redplumdotcom)=.49 each, sooo big and good!!!!
Fresh green beans .99 a pound

Over at Ralphs they have blueberries for .99 cents, I think its 6 oz.
I am doing weight watchers right now and I am soooo loving all this good fresh cheap fruits and veggies.

Holy Moly... finally.. good deals. They're at Target apparently. I usually have a really tough time there but today had made a bunch of money back on several deals without any beeping issues. I had to buy extra items to make up on the overage. $65 worth of stuff for $4. woot

Go to the Target thread. - - > It's all in the Wiki. (Special K and Schick Hydro would be the key search words.)
http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2114326

- - - I'd list it all here, but there really is so many deals right now that I wouldn't be able to list them.
