Congratulations to our winner Christa! Christa email me at fabulesslyfrugal at gmail dot com and I will send you your free movie ticket codes!

I did find that some of the items I was looking for were out! In fact we had even ordered Baby Rays and it didn’t work out this time. No sweat!  I just got Rain Checks for the following items: Sweet Baby Rays, Reynolds Wrap, Deli Deluxe Cheese! Don’t forget to ask  for a rain check when your store is out of an item you love! For more tips on getting the items you want read my How to Avoid Leaving the Store with out the Deal post!

    Congratulations to Christa 🙂

    Monica, I was wondering if you were able to get your rain checks for the instant savings amount, for example the brownies were on sale for $ .99 and with buying any 10 of the promo items the brownies were $ .49. My store would only write the rain check for the $.99, not the $.49 for the brownies, I didn’t know if that was normal? 🙂

    • Monica

      Yes. My store does it that way as long as you still buy in multiples of 10!

      • ben

        So how does that work. Do they then give you a raincheck for all the items that included in the promotion? For example, right now my Albertsons is out of Mustard ( just wanted 3) and then was going to purchase 3 of the Gatorade and 4 of the Brownie. They are not out of the Brownie or Gatorade currently, so they won’t issue a raincheck. So if I come back with a raincheck on the mustard………I get the lower price on the mustard but not on the other items???? I am confused.

      • Jessica B

        Thanks so much for the info! I asked her if I could just buy in sets of 10 to get the price and she said no. This was the Caldwell store near the stadium (in case anyone wants to know) I’m glad you were able to get the rain checks 🙂

    I also have a question about rain checks. My store will give them but won’t let me use a doubler with it? What is their policy?

    I tried to use a $1.25/1 coupon for pickles yesterday. I was thinking they’d make it $2 off. They wouldn’t. No? Is that right? It wasn’t a killer deal to begin with… but I had teenagers with my that were DYING for pickles. I had 4 helpers yesterday…. I left feeling like I was completely out of control and not sure at all that I got the deals I expected. In fact I did find on one receipt that two coupons go missed. That never happens when I’m alone.

    would guess $12.36

    Do you think that .50 / 1 for HEINZ is as good as it will get this year? I started couponing last summer and had $1/1 for FREE heinz at Walmart… with a rollback sale : )
    I only have .25 /1 coupons but will get some .50 if you think that is the best we will get?
