    Wow!! That's awesome!!!

    Is there a certain time period the lists are good for? Like say I sign up and make a list today, do I have to use it within a certain amoung to days to actually get those prices? Or does it depend on the store sales?

    Also, does it just list all the current sales in the store, or do you have to make a list like "bread, milk, chicken, etc" and then it gives you the list of sales based on what you are looking for.

    I think I'm going to try this out!

      This looks really interesting! I really need to get a coupon accordian because I never use my coupons because I forget about them. Stupid, I know, but they can be a total PITA.

        so they make a list for one specific store- i choose publix- and the list is all the things that are on sale that week at publix and how much you can save using the coupons, the instore sales, etc- and it tells you where to get your coupon. its really hard to explain but if you do sign up (its only $1 for a trial 28 day period) then she explains it well. YOU dont make a list at all- you are supposed to choose your grocery items based upon the sale list- so when i shopped i got almost everything on sale but still bought our regular organic milk, bread, baby food- etc that i knew i MUST buy- and then bought everything else off the "on sale" list

          I'm a really big couponer and I can recommend some good sites that have all this information available... I know there is one like the grocery game that lists all the sale stuff at stores in your area and then the coupons that are currently available. I can't remember what it is. I'll try to find it... Depending what store I am shopping at I save between 60% to 90% or even more sometimes. I have enough toothpaste, shampoo, razors, pain relievers, and other necessities to last me a couple years. Anyways... here are a couple good forums about couponing...

          Hot Coupon World
          A Full Cup

          Slickdeals also has some really dedicated people for specific stores like Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc. At CVS I easily get about $30 or more worth of stuff for under a dollar when I plan it out right. If I just wing it at the store I might pay a dollar or two more...

            Ok, this is the last question, I swear!!!

            I was going to sign up, but I noticed there is some sort of referral program where you can earn free weeks if 3 people sign up. From what I read you can earn referrals during your trial (they apparently just hold them over until both you and the referral graduate from trial to full member). Anyway, do you have a referral link Nicole? I couldn't tell if the link in your original posting was one or not (I don't think it is?).

            If you want to include your referral link I'll use that for when I sign up this weekend. I'm not sure if I'll go beyond the trial period (depends on how much I end up saving), but if I do, you might as well get the credit!

              its my old email address

              i think i only get credit if you continue past the trial but i am not totally sure- thanks so much for thinking of me!!!

                I found it... It's Grocery Coupons, Coupons, Free Samples, Online Coupons, Restaurant Coupons. They have nationwide stores listed as well as regional stores.

                  For those of you who have tried this or something like it...Does it focus primarily on processed items, or does it include lots of fresh produce and meat? I really try to keep my grocery shopping to the outer walls rather than the interior processed stuff...mainly I buy dairy and some produce (but I have a veggie garden). Any thoughts? I guess I could just do the $1 trial, but I hate the whole cancellation process for these types of things, lol!
