    Today I did the P&G deal but none of my Zaves coupons came out. I never had problems before. Any ideas? I thought still it was a good deal. Can I still go back to customer service and get the credit back?

    Those e-coupons were sweet! Great trip!

    @purvi once i had that the zavers didnt deduct i contacted zavers directly and they reimbursed me the amount i was owed after they verified i bought the right items

  • So I have a question about doing multiple transactions, do you just go to the self checkout lane and check yourself out or do you buy the 1st transaction, put it in your car and then go back for the next? Or are you doing multiple transactions over a week? I mean does driving back and forth with the cost of gas really pay off?

    Thnaks Elsee. I contacted them via email.

    @Melissa – I went to Pathmark in the evening around 8 pm and the store was fairly quiet. I did do self check out, but had trouble with a couple of my paper coupons scanning. The cashiers were very pleasant and transferred my order and helped me complete the transaction. I ended up walking to the car, dropping the detergent, ect and going back for the cereal. I suspect, that if I asked politely the cashier would have allowed me to just leave my cart and go grab the cereal. Then, the Wal-Mart is right next to the Pathmark, so I decided to go see if they still had the 0.94 cent size softsoap.

    Hello- great trip, was wondering if the Soaftsoap at Walmart was on clearance or was that the sale price?

  • Crystal

    Robin the printed Softsoap coupons did not have size restrictions. Thank you.
