i know people are using the acronyms because we aren't supposed to mention other sites (?) but can someone clue me in to what the other sites that area always being mentioned are
AFC, a full cup dot com is where the early scans are being posted.
Couponers Wanted requires membership but that's where the Jewel UPC list often appears.
