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....

Thread with suggestions and ideas for coupon organization.. ** Credit goes to mrsjawshewa and NCSUFire**

2012 Coupon Insert Schedule


Where can I use store q and manu q on the same item? TYVM Plgffl & MommieD
  • Target- Yes you can use a store q and a manu q on one item.
  • CVS- Yes you can use a cvs q and a manu q on each item.
  • Publix- Yes you can use a publix q and a manu q on each item.
  • Kroger- You can use Kroger coupons with manu q's, but not e-coupons (electronic coupons; such as shortcuts, cellfire, Kroger loadable coupons, etc).. *the register no longer allows for both an EQ and MQ to be used together on one item*
  • Walgreens- Yes you can use a wag q and a manu q. (Register won't allow more coupons than items in order) *always use the MQ first, then the Walgreens IVC (instant value coupon)*
  • Petsmart& PetCo- Yes you can use a store q and a manu q at those stores.
  • Rite-Aid- I beleive you can, I have , but I am not sure of the official policy.
  • Update on Rite-Aid policy: They do allow store q along with manufacturer q's. This was told to me by a store manager when I was in CA recently.
  • Meijer - Yes you can use Meijer Mealbox or Meijer discount Q's from ads with a manu q.
  • BJ's Wholesale Club - register flags possible duplicate but allows both BJ's and manu q.
Those are the only stores that I know of or that I have shopped at that have both store coupons and mq.

Add to the list of stores that accept both coupons on one item: Safeway and Albertsons and Fred Meyer.

The best thing is to email your stores and ask for a copy of their official coupon policy.

Just got the iphone (yay!) and discovered the coupons dot app. You can select coupons and send them to your email but that won't give you more prints for that comp. It also gives you an option to send the coupons to your wireless printer, but I think that only works if it's an HP. Has anyone found a workaround for this?
Thanks!

I usually get the supermarket circulars for next wk sales on Thursdays (today). It usually comes early in the a.m. but I looked around my neighbors driveways they dont have it either. Hope I get it soon! Need to start prepping my list and Q's Wink

EDIT: finally got the circulars. it was late

Is there any way of figuring out what product a peelie is from? I have a Revlon $1 peelie and it doesn't say anything on it about what it's for. TIA!

A lot of the Revlon peelies list a specific product in the fine print on the back of it. If not, I would guess it is good for any Revlon then. HTH!

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.

I went to CVS today and I tried to use my extra care bucks but it wouldnt let me because I left the card at home. I had already used two coupons. The cashier gave me back the q's but can they still be used again since they have been scanned already?

Absolutely. Those ECB's are attached to your Extra Care card. So it didn't void them out. In fact I don't think they work without your Extra Care card.

Hawiandawn is correct. You can have the coupons scanned UNTIL you redeem them by leaving them at the store when you walk out with the product on the coupon. And, your CVS card is attached to the telephone number you provided them with so you can just tell them your phone number if you forget your card and your deals will still work.

Thanks guys.

I gave them my phone number and they couldnt find it but still let me get the sale price. But it still would not let use the extra care bucks.

Here's a LINK to the CVS "how to" manual. It will answer a lot of questions - even the ones you didn't know you had.

Did you fill out the form when you got your extra care card or no? If you didn't fill out the form it won't know your phone number. Smilie

I filled out the form and got the card years ago. I forgot the card at home and when I put in the phone number it couldnt find it. I went back there today and this time I had the card so I was able to use the extra care bucks.

Oh good! The cashier could have easily put your phone number in incorrectly but might as well update your information to make sure.

Newbie here, but not new to coupons. I'm looking forward to jumping in and getting serious about stockpiling again.
