The PUBLIX thread is IMHO the best grocery store thread around heart
Here's a little chat area for us all to share info, recipes, rant's, raves and whatever else we want without clogging up the regular weekly deals thread for PUBLIX. If we want to share super deals we find in other stores or whatnot that's ok too heart

I think we all are such a great family that it's a good to have our own special place Grouphug


You can post basically anything you like in here but let's keep deals info in the actual PUBLIX thread. All are welcome and basically no major rules except be kind and courteous of other's and treat each other with respect. Other than that let's all have some fun! Also you don't have to shop at PUBLIX to share in the chat or whatnot... we like everyone.

If you're that passionate about the set then treat yourself Big Grin That's a huge amount of savings if you do it tomorrow If you don't get it, you will probably regret it later nod If you get it and change your mind then it return it later.
That's what I'm thinking because it would end up being 70% which seems like a lot but I guess it's really not that different from a normal 50% off and then earning 20% back in Kohl's cash. I wish there was an online pic. I know our closest Kohl's has 2 sets right now so I'm not feeling THAT pushed for it but I was sooo proud of not spending lately and just saving Sadwalk

I woke up this morning and decided to wait out the jewelry. The main reason why is because I've set this goal of saving a while back but have never hit it. Probably the best gift I could give myself is pushing myself to achieve what I set out to do. I'm thinking it'll just be a month or so anyway's and I don't want to waste the $20.00 in gas it would cost me. If it's meant to be then it will be waiting for me when I actually have it in my budget to buy it.

When I got up this morning I heard some disappointing news (nothing major) but I wonder sometimes why people make promises to your face only to change what they promised when you aren't looking. I love the way people are always so thankful when you are doing things to help them or donating stuff but then they quickly forget and act like you're a mooch.

It seems PF has issued a statement on their FB page that they have issued a letter to retailers to not accept the $5 printable as of this morning. The comments are varied as you can imagine. It seems CVS has already put a block on it earlier this week. So, no more PF Sadwalk
Wonder what the thoughts are over here on this. I just saw what was written...got the feeling I was the only person who had the Q and didn't use it. Embarrassment Seriously though, I think it would have been honorable for them to follow through with the terms of the coupon. I don't even know if technically what they did is legal in terms of contract law...I mean, they might be able to 'send letters' to retailers to threaten/warn of possible internet distribution of the coupon. BUT I believe legally they will have to honor the coupons if they're sent in for redemption. It was a valid coupon that they put out...they should have been smarter about it. Definitely use an online service that limits Q's etc. They apparently were too cheap to do that, and in the long run it cost them. Now, they're losing the respect of a lot of people (likely most people) who only bought a few products with the Q to help with the cost of their expensive cosmetics and weren't like the S&Gers or hoarders out there who bought hundreds and hundreds with the intent to resell/make money.

A lot of people were wondering what *might* happen once the coupon was being shown used en masse on Extreme Couponing. IMHO, chalk this up to that show again...because that was bad publicity for it and there were internet sites online that apparently had that coupon available for download! Yikes!

I won't really get into it because it makes me angry but unfortunately in Tampa there really aren't any true no kill's even though some promote themselves that way. It's all about big business and it's about making money. Since I'm active in rescue work I've been there to pull dogs and know what it's like Frown
It's really sad truthfully and lots of people think they are contributing to No Kill shelters and it's just not the case Sadwalk
Sometime you'll have to tell me about it, seriously. I still muse about doing rescue work myself in the future. But, with the kids, and cats I have right now don't see it happening until I'm geriatric LOL. Two of my cats are older at this point, and it's sad to say too persians have crappy lifespans just like some pedigreed dogs do. Just too many issues from inbreeding.Frown

Hey, if it's something you love *so much* and hey, you work so hard as it is to get all the free Kohl's stuff! LOL I'm sure you're more than balanced out for it!

Massive headache overnight, woke up before 4AM took some ibuprophen...feeling like a really long day so far...! Frown Low shopping weekend for me, today may be the only day. Though I snuck out to Target the other night to get some ice cream bars for DH. Tried the Magnum...well...maybe it's just me, but did they have to pick that name. It makes me think of one thing...Embarrassment.

PhatChristy- Most of the stuff I know from doing rescue work I wish I would have never known. Sometimes innocence is bliss I guess or maybe I'm just too sensitive sometimes. It's a horrible business regarding homeless pet's and with everything it all comes down to dollars and cents.

Personally I'm really PO'd over the PF coupon... I don't blame it on the Extreme Couponer's because unfortunately this crap happens all the time. I remember last year it was the $1.50 off Colgate Coupon that suddenly they didn't want to redeem (even though it was a legit coupon). Before that there was a $1.00 off Tide Free and Clear Printable that also got shut down even though it was legit. I'm not advocating anyone using the coupons after the Manufacturer says they don't want to redeem it but IMHO they have no right to shut down redemption of it. I printed it legally (like other's) and it's a legit coupon... it's not our fault as a customer if they suddenly don't want to pay for it. They should have to redeem it and pay the value of it since it was there promotion. I hate that they think they can cheat consumers like that.

PF knows better, when they released their B1G1 it was bricks. IMO they should have let it run it's course..afterall the coupon expires in June anyway. Veggie Patch and Happy Baby let theirs run the length of the coupon and handled it very professionally. They probably gained a lot of customers and respect that way.

The manufacturers don't really have a clue on a PDF though until the first rounds of invoices come from the clearing house.I'm sure they were shocked. And to say it can't be combined with a sale WTF are they crazy?!?! Stores advertise look for coupon in the Sunday paper. PF screwed up and they should ride it out. But it is what it is..another terrific coupon gone Sadwalk

No GC deal here Sadwalk I did find some BOGO peelies right after the coupon released. I still have those Smilie I think it's pretty crappy of them to pull it. My friend in NoCal did the GC deal yesterday before they announced they had pulled the coupon. At least she got free makeup and GC's to use later.

I like the JF foam hair color. I normally have to use 2 bottles when I color because of the length of my hair. Not with that stuff...there is more than enough in the bottle to cover all of my hair. Plus it was not super stinky like most home hair colors..and the coverage for my ugly gray hair was good..laugh out loud

I did feel like a bit of a Dominatrix though putting on black latex gloves LMAO Why they made them black I Dontknow

I agree with you...they 'screwed up'...and I can't believe they would be so clueless as to not assume that some people would print multiples if given in PDF form.

I don't even believe that legally they have any leg to stand on. In terms of contract law they put out the coupon, they will have to reimburse the stores if the coupon is accepted by the date printed on there. What they're doing now is a 'ploy' to slow down/limit redemption. Enough people are going to not understand this, will be dissuaded from even attempting it, that they will make enough of an impact that in their eyes it's worth the potential loss of customers, bad pr, etc.. They will do what they can to make the coupon very difficult to use, and present the facade that it would be fraud or illegal to use it in an effort to curb it's use.

I personally think that is a bad and unethical business plan. Really shows an overall lack of integrity on their part.

Personally I'm not a big makeup buyer at all (I think the only products I've 'bought' in the last ten years were lipgloss and nail polish--uber cheap/free items got from RR and deals) but this sort of thing is exactly the kind of thing that would make me say negative things about a company and boycott them.

I agree with what you said... honestly I don't know how they can screw over customer's like this and truthfully I don't think legally that their statement about no longer honoring the coupon is anything more than a "request" once again I'm not advocating redemption of the coupon or anything but it just doesn't make sense to me Dontknow

My mood this morning has gone from bad to worse. I didn't sleep well last night and then deciding to not get the jewelry made me Sadwalk
Then hearing that we were suddenly "uninvited" to a going away party made me even Ranting and I smelled Beef Bacon cooking downstairs and was all excited to go eat it but unfortunately NONE was left. Supposedly he yelled to me to come get some but since I didn't come it's now gone Sadwalk
I bought that stupid beef bacon out of town and now it's gone Sadwalk

We didn't have the GC deal here, but I used the Q a few times for concealer and some eyeliner when my T had it for $4.99. I've bought products of theirs for (gasp) full price and I enjoy some of their line...but I'm a full believer you need to suck it up if you make a mistake. I have respect for companies that say 'wow, this was a mistake, but it was OUR mistake'

I'd rather have the black gloves than the weird thin plasticky gloves that some hair dyes come with. Regular rubber gloves make me think of doctors or condoms (but not at the same time) laugh out loud so I like the black

Oh woops...forgot this...someone just told me on Facebook the world is supposed to end in a little over two hours. Darn it, guess I'm not going to be making it to Publix to use up those RCs before the coupon policy changes. Mad
