Is this corn frozen or in a can anyone know??
I think it's frozen. I checked the canned vegetable isle and none to be found there. Of course, this was my small HEB.

Heads up! I got The San Antonio Light free paper thrown in my yard today. It didn't have any inserts but it did have a one page HEB coupon for a FREE Orchid Nail Lacquer (limit 1 per customer) valid 3/23 - 3/30. Wonder if it will be in tomorrow's paper?

I wonder if adding gift cards and rolling them though would still work to assure balance is above the spend threshold

I know this was suggested a while back, but wanted to say that this works. I have 3 of the $10/$30 cats expiring very soon. i bought a $20 gift card in addition to my $30+ in merchandise-paid $19.97 in cash. No beeps and no intervention needed. Turned around and did it again-using gift card #1 to get gift card #2. Best coupons are the Bic razor coupons and the free orchid nail polish in today's paper.

Wanted to report that I used a YQ for the spreadable HEB butter and get pills bury biscuits free. Didn't realize until I got home that I grabbed the smaller size of the spreadable butter $1.50 and the YQ scanned. The bigger size butter is $2.50 and the biscuits are $1.38.

I went into HEB several times over the past month and asked them to mark down ground beef that expire the following day and they give me a bunch of different, vague, and faulty reasons why they cannot. I even went at 9pm and they offered me 20% off instead of their usual 50% off. I've gotten them to mark down upon request, but I think I was just lucky to ask the meat cutters instead of the supervisors/managers. I've also seen marked down ground beef on the shelves w/o request.

So I have no clue as to their policy and the employees seem to have no clue either. Does anyone know their actual policy? It doesn't make sense why they would choose to throw away meat instead of selling at 50% off. Unless they aren't really throwing them away. They mark down almost everything else in the store including chicken, pork, beef, milk, etc. Everything except bakery, which is another mystery as to why they don't mark that down like Kroger/Walmart does.

They don't mark down bread because they donate it, I am not sure on the meat, just that different stores seem to have differing policies on it, no unified policy. As to the not ground beef, like steaks, and roast, they grind that into hamburger, that is what they make the 2.77lb hamburger out of. It is usually put out with a same day expiration date.

If you still have the Dr. Pepper coupons that came out in the stand alone Q flyer for drinks a few weeks ago:

Dr. Pepper 10 are 3/$4 or $1.33 each, there is a 0.75 Q for Buy the various "10" drinks

Total = $0.58 each

Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry are 0.97, there is a 0.75 Q when you buy 2:

2 X 0.97= $1.94-0.75= $1.19 for 2 or 0.60 each

The q's expire March 31st

In Waco, All bakery gets donated to caritas and ground beef is thrown out. They only mark down chicken, pork and marinated beef....(according to the meat guy)

Yea those with same day expiration are the packages with the saran wrap. I was referring to the 3lb and 5lb packages of ground beef that have a blue plastic package. They have somewhere around a week expiration from when they first appear on the shelf.

I think that like in many stores, when an item is 'clearanced', employees may get first pick on it. So it's possible they are marking it down when on the day it expires and the employees are taking it home to family.

Caution - OT only.

I went to HEB yesterday to use up all of my gift cards from previous deals. I haven't shopped there since they changed the coupon policy and I doubt I'll be back. I started shopping there about 2 years ago because of their coupon policy and I'll miss their good deals. I won't miss the crowded aisles, parking lots, etc. Their customer service is good but that's not enough of a draw for me to go so I'm back to Walmart for regular groceries.

I felt very nostalgic as I shopped and it felt weird to check out and actually spend my gift cards knowing that this was the end...there was no CAT to work toward or obtain. So many stores with so many coupon changes over the past 2 years. HEB & Walgreens were my last 2 holdout stores but now they've both changed their policies. I'm sad but also looking forward to a normal life (or a semi-break Smilie ) and shopping kind of like a normal person.

ah, now that makes perfect sense. They don't mark it down, so that it won't sell, so that they can keep it.

Is Walmart doing it in your area? I saw something on a blog that WM is doing it again for the summer. Just surprised that HEB wouldn't match it...
