The Chinet napkins coupon was about a month ago - no clue of the insert but it was a grouping of 4 Chinet coupons all for $1 off different items.
I have three of group of 4 and one of the $2 plates. My mom will bring me two more of the $2 plates when she comes to visit and I can mail them all about August 29th, or I can mail the ones I have now right away. The group of 4 expire on 9-14-09.

Just looked - the group of 4 don't have a napkin coupon, it's cups, crystal plates and cups, plates and salad side dish, they are all $1.

It's the first one that shows as soon as you go to CVS.com, but about 3 seconds later it changes to a $10/50 online ad and then one for Tena products, etc. It will show the Ready-Fill one again if you miss it.

Thanks so much LanaJae, it was my computer Got it working finally! Appreciate all your help!

And BTW at the end, it will ask you a question about giving permission to store info and you choose accept or deny. well if you pick deny, you won't have to delete the cookie because it won't get to leave one. It won't ask this question until the 2nd time you do the survey (after having deleted the cookie the first time) or at least that was my experience. Good Luck everyone.

Thanks for your help! It didn't ask me for a number? And it printed twice on its own!! ?? Do I dare try and use both?

Whooo hooo that would be great. There is one of those in the group of 4 that doesn't show napkins but says it in the print (or at least it did in ours here - those may be a different grouping). The napkins here are .90 so with the $1 coupon we get .10 overage.

I'll PM you my address. THANKS SO MUCH!!! Let me know if there are any that you need.

Glad I'm not the only one with the grocery store thing!

I know the price of pet food has gone crazy. I know someone who makes all their own pet food, it's baked. I don't think I could handle the smell, but it probably is a lot like our food when it's made at home - but also probably even more expensive than buying it. Can't win. My daughter's cat eats organic/expensive food (and my daughter pays for it), but my cat only likes Purina Cat Chow of all things, I've given her really good/healthy food and she won't have anything to do with it. She's almost 15 so pretty set in her way.

I had a cat that lived until she was 18. She refused to eat anything other than Meow Mix and Kozy Kitten (the absolute cheapest brand). She was very healthy all of her life until close to the end when she went thru a period of a few months of kidney issues. She wouldn't touch the "good" stuff.

I have no idea! I want to know when you started to be able to get negative subtotals!

I was shopping at the store in Third Lake, right on the border between Gurnee and Lindenhurst.

I don't know if you have a Meijer around you, but they have a five dollar store coupon on purina animal foods, plus if you fill out the questions on giveabowl.com you get 3.50 coupon off and that's 8.50 off purina pet food!

Some of you know I have problems with my computer, often with CVS sites and coupons

Some of you have kindly tried to help, also some PMs, thank you again!!

Someone suggested I check out my firewall and I was shocked what I saw -
The firewall 'blocked' over 60,000 INbound connections AND its blocked over 6,200 OUTBOUND connections!!??

So that got me thinking -- what exactly are OUTbound connections?
Does that mean some of my emails might not make it out?

I've also been applying for jobs on line -- any chance those aren't going through?

Anyone know whats included in OUTbound connections? Should I be worried? I hate missing cvs and coupon stuff but I'll be heartbroken if my job applications haven't gone out either!
I'd be grateful for feedback, or point me in the right direction to find it. TIA!!!

Happened to me too! She was very nice about pushing it thru though. She even said it didn't say anything on the coupon itself about it not being good until the 10th!

I forgot to mention this yesterday. I wanted to tell you all about my CVS "duh" moment.

Do you remember last week we were talking about the free item coupon we all got from the coupon machine? I said I was dissapointed because I got some diet/nutrition bar. Well yesterday when I went to CVS I looked closely at my CRT because it expired yesterday. It said,

"Abs Divine"

and I thought that was a diet bar so my "Abs" would be "divine".

You see where this is going...

But I read on and it said "chocolate bar" or something like that. Then it hit me that it meant "Absolutely Divine"!

So it ended up that I got the great free chocolate coupon!!!

My girls are both younger (1 and 5) so they have adjusted ok, but it took the one a while.

LOL....my girls LOVED the Meow Mix stuff in the purple bag. I call it McDonalds for cats. My one girl pukes up everything though and was on the verge of starving to death until we figured out her teeth problem and allergies (we suspect chicken or grains) so I avoid those products in foods. $700 dollars later and after getting her used to the "good" food she is doing fantastic. And so is our other cat and dog (who also had bad allergy problems which are almost nonexistant now that we changed his diet).

Thanks for the tips. I don't feed them Purina becuase of all the by products and glutens they use.....but hopefully this info helps someone else out
