CLICK HERE to sign up.  I already have an account, but now my husband does too.  I can't wait to use the credit to turn an amazing deal to an out of this world deal!

Reviewing the new Price Chopper Corporate Coupon Policy.


Change always leads to confusion.  I think it is important to educate cashiers and store employees in a friendly manner with a smile.  The new Price Chopper coupon policy contains many changes.  Price Chopper reviews new things with employees, but how motivated would you be at the age of 18 to pay attention to a coupon talk? If I was making under $8 an hour I know I would let the info go in one ear and out the other.  I recommend printing a copy of the policy to keep with you.  I have also have an additional copy of the policy and a highlighter with me.  If I run into a problem I highlight the section of the policy that is violated and review it with the cashier team leader, and manager to assure that they are following the policy and know where the customer service break down is.  I am always nice and in general they are too. 

CLICK HERE to get your own copy. 

Now Lets look at the policy and hen pick it apart!!!!  :)

Manufacturer Coupon Acceptance

  • The AdvantEdge card must be scanned prior to coupon deductions
  • Only one manufacturer's coupon may be used on an item purchased, not to exceed the retail price after AdvantEdge discounts. Price Chopper accepts one manufacturer and one Price Chopper coupon for the same item (unless prohibited).
  • We will accept only one (1) manufacturer coupon for an advertised Buy one, Get one Free Offer. We will not accept a manufacturer's coupon for the product that is received free as part of a Buy one, Get one Free Offer.
  • Free items, Buy one, Get one offer, mail- in certificates and unspecified items will be redeemed at face value or free value only.
  • Refunds and rebate checks will be cashed at the Customer Service desk and deposited.
  • Coupons for cigarettes, tobacco, milk and alcoholic beverages can not be doubled.
  • Under Criminal State Laws, we are required to comply with all manufacturers' coupons requirement. Any other use constitutes fraud.
  • We reserve the right to limit quantities.
  • We reserve the right to accept or reject any coupon.
The big change here is the rule that you cannot use manufacturer coupons on the free items in a BOGO or B1G2 offers.  You can still use a coupon on the item needed to get the free items.  That includes using coupons for FREE items. (IE; I have a coupon for an $8 Perdue Chicken item.  They are BOGO.  I will get them both free).  When it comes to using $1/2 items they are still taking those and doubling them.

Special Coupon Offers (Double and/or Triple Coupons)

  • Some Price Chopper stores double coupons and some do not. Depending on the store you shop, we may double up to 4 manufacturer coupons of like items.
** There is a selection tool in the online policy** Choose your store location to see their specific policy.
The Plattsburgh NY store doubles all coupons with a $1 face value or less.
  • Total double or triple value of a coupon may not exceed the items' retail price after AdvantEdge discounts. (you can have it FREE, but don't expect them to give you $$ back)
  • The total of all double coupons cannot exceed 50% of the order after AdvantEdge discounts. Single value will be deducted there after. (There is a science to this and it can be played with.  I go into great detail on how to use this to your advantage at my coupon clipping parties)
  • Triple coupons cannot exceed the retail price of the item or the total of the order after AdvantEdge discounts.
    The big change here is that Price Chopper Corporate is now saying that every store can decide if they will double/triple coupons.  Price Chopper in Malone and Plattsburgh double all coupons with a face value of $1 or less.  All stores that double coupons must now allow a customer to redeem 4 same offers in a transaction.  There has always been confusion here.  Some cashiers would say 2, most of the time 4 in Malone.  If you have 4 $1 coupons for pickles they must double all 4 of the coupons. In the past they would double 2 but then would only allow coupon face value for quantities over 2.  **Make sure to bring a copy of this policy)** There are some slower learners in the Plattsburgh store but they have been more than happy to comply with friendly and cheerful teaching.
Internet Coupon Acceptance

  • We accept valid Internet coupons up to face value of $5. This includes Free offers and Buy one Get one free offers.
  • ***This is huge.  They were not taking "free" item printables, but they are now.  The coupons need to be legit and meet all requirements, but they are not flatly refusing them**
Competitor Coupon Acceptance
  • We accept our competitors' coupons based on marketing area.
  • We accept competitors' coupons for cents off, dollars off an order and percentage off an order.
  • They may not be combined with Price Chopper Store coupons or Manufacturer coupons on the same product purchase.
This looks good in theory, but since you cannot use coupons with price adjustment there is little motivation to go through the trouble.  If you can score a %age off total order this may be good for loss leaders or items that never go on sale. ( Fillet Mignon and Lobster Tails come to mind).

Vocal Point- A Question For You...

I love vocal point and I love the nifty packaging they use to mail their try & tells.  Today my Crest toothpaste try & tell arrived in a cool pop up box with movable parts.  But there were no coupons. There was a coupon holder built in and there was an arrow pointing to the holder that said "Save With These"- but not one coupon in the package.  Did anyone get coupons or did I get the only dud?  I can't wait to hear about what kind of coupons they included this time.  Free product? BOGO? $$ off?

Apply to host a Hershey's Baking/Cookie Exchange Party

Hershey's is accepting applications to host a cookie swap.  They supply a ton of products, recipes, and other fun things.  You invite your friends for a day of baking and eating the diet of elves. I applied last year and was not picked to host, so I am hoping my odds are better this year.  I love holiday cookies and cookie exchanges.  It's going to be a long 9 weeks dreaming of the goodies that will appear at our Rehab/Dietary/Co-Worker swap at CVPH.  I am dreaming of Stacy's Ritz Peanut butter creations.  Someone made date balls last year- I hope to see those again! I would be in heaven if someone would make Oreo truffles.  I will be making my homemade chocolates, cake balls, and cake pops.  I am honing my candy making skills over the next few weeks.  If you live in Plattsburgh and like to make candy or cakes- Global Sugar Art on Rt. 3 is pure bliss.  I plan on making my first trip down to get some supplies next week.  So I digress, try taking advantage of the Hershey's opportunity.  If you are chosen you will be able to make some one's cookie dreams come true. CLICK HERE TO APPLY

Target Leapfrog Deal- Another Great Holiday Gift

Target has Leapfrog books on sale this week.  A reader reports that there are also Tag clearance books on the clearance end cap near the books and movies ($6.98 range). I am sure the clearance books will fly off the shelves once this deal gets out!

Visit Leapfrog/Chevy to score a new $5 off one Tag book printable coupon. Leapfrog and Chevy have teamed up to promote their latest vehicle and early learning toys.  Their new Equinox makes learning on the go a snap.  They make you watch a little video and enter a sweepstakes (which I am going to win.  Maybe that affirmation will make it happen.).  A little bit of work for a great coupon and the chance to compete with me in winning the sweepstakes.  It is a bricks coupon, so print, arrow back, refresh and print again.  LOVE IT!


This Week at Target
  • Leapfrog Tag Books $10
  • Use $5/1 printable coupon from above or
  • Use $4/1 Leap Frog Tag Book (9/19/2010 SS )
  • Regular Priced Books will cost $5-$6
  • If you are lucky enough to find clearance books, $1.98 may be possible)
I love all of out LeapFrog Toys, but the Tag is my favorite!

Make Money While Helping An Elderly Neighbor- Walgreens Deal


There was a great coupon and mail in rebate form in yesterday's Smart Source Sunday Paper Insert. 
Here are the Deal Details 
  • Buy 1 Bufferin Low Dose (81mg 130-count) at $5.99
  • Use $3/1 Bufferin product coupon (10/17 SS) STACK WITH
  • $3/1 coupon from the Walgreen's October coupon booklet (Found in Rack with Weekly Sale Ads)
  • Free after coupons
  • Submit the mail-in rebate form from the 10/17 SS and this deal turns into a  money-maker!
I don't use aspirin, but millions of Americans over the age of 50 take low dose aspirin to cut their risk of stroke and heart attack.  81mg is the baby/low dose and this product meets that requirement.  Many elderly folks cannot afford simple preventative medications.  Consider picking one up and donating it to a food shelf, JCEO outreach, or church affiliated pantry.  They are always in need of OTC medications and personal care items. 

Free Sample of Miralex Migraine

Thank You Wicked Cool Deals for sharing this one! CLICK HERE to request a free sample of Miralex (not to be confuses with Miralax :)   )  Migraine meds.

Heads Up for Next Monday 8am- Green Mountain Coffee

I am not sure how many weeks the promo will run, but on Mondays at 8am EST Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is giving away 2500 full sized coffee mugs with coffee samples. They are promoting free trade.  The mugs and samples are already gone for today 10/18.  This would make a fantastic addition to a coffee lover's holiday basket.  I think I may turn in some Swag Bucks to grab a Starbucks gift card to add to this to make a perfect gift for someone on my list. CLICK HERE to get to the Green Mountain Coffee Site on Facebook.  Set yourself a reminder to visit again next Monday at 8am for your chance to grab one of these great freebies.
