Thread Details

In this forum, we are all here to help each other and learn. (Crikey. Almost two years since I have joined and someone had to explain what a particular smiley meant just last week. Stick Out Tongue) I learned something from a wise q girl a long time ago...."A coupon is a form of payment." Armed with that knowledge, don't fear using the q as long as you are using them as the manufacturer states.

I know there are a couple of websites around that offer to teach you how to coupon shop for a fee. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you there is NO NEED to pay anyone a fee to learn to shop. Smilie All you need is SD and the coupon love you can get here is amazing.

Coupon shopping takes one thing....the confidence to learn and try. It can be scary but you can do it. Again, no need to pay someone. There are many many Jedi masters here that like to help Padawans.

I know it seems like SD can be overwhelming. Especially for those with little time to peruse the entire board. Here are some of my fave threads...

Here's a thread with the rules. I like it because the first two posts have a good list of abbreviations for nooblets. There is some really good info in it too. Not just boring old rules....

Grumpy cashiers not wanting to take your q's? Commiserate here...

What is the funniest, strangest, most off the wall reason a cashier has given you for NOT taking your coupons?

The Drugstore and Grocery Store Index and Information Thread is mod stickied to the top. Maybe you'd like to create a personal sticky of some of them? At the top of the thread, on the far right is a thread tool link. You can subscribe (my personal fave) or sticky any thread you like.

List of Common Abbreivations

Abbreviations Sitewide and/or Commonly Used Abbreviations in the DS forum (located in WIKI)

LASTLY......don't be afraid to ask! Read the wiki. (What's a and/or Wiki? It's the first post after the initial post in a thread. It can be updated by any registered user. Just like Wikipedia!) And then if you still have a question, I am sure someone will help. PM, IM, phone a friend or bat call. Just ask. Smilie

Afraid of the Wiki? Go here for some FAQ regarding the Wiki.

Whee YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!Whee

I just looked at her original post and I don't see it in there Confused but I have been sick, so I might have missed it.. Just ignore this post.. if so.

I saw you posted the link originally.. I gave you credit in my post. I just thought it would be a good addition to her original post ~ if she wanted to edit and update it.. So the link doesn't get lost in the thread... but like I said, if I missed it... then totally disregard this post.

I think you are misunderstanding what I meant. I found that original link via your post. I thought Dawn might want to add it to her original post or someone might want to add it to the wiki because eventually it will get buried under posts on here.. That's the point I was trying to make.

I originally saw the thread from your post and gave you credit in my post, which asked Dawn to add it to the first post.. (giving you and the OP of that thread credit~ of course)..

Sorry for the misunderstanding.. It's not a big deal.. I just thought it would help if this thread keep growing longer..

wave Thanks for the link, btw...

We were lost in internet translation.. Stick Out Tongue anyway, it's not a big deal at all.. it was a suggestion. I was thinking of doing the wiki myself.. actually I might do that later when I have more time after work.. I will credit you and the OP of that link too..

Happy New Year!

yes you can. Walgreens is the only place where using a RR from one mfq may not get you another RR.
