I think you should cancel your order and get a refund.. I googled 'dealticker legit' and many people have had problems with their deals in the past.

LoL, Scrubbing Bubbles. A couple years back, they had printable coupons for $3 off... so when they went on sale, you could get them free. Some people bought them by the carton.

I probably got about a dozen boxes. I find them to be pretty useless though. I don't think it does anything to help keep the bowl cleaner... but my plumber friend says it prevents the water ring from building as quickly.

Wow, kind of missed the ads from Michael's for this week, but yesterday and today, there's the usual 40% off one item coupon, as well as a 20% off entire purchase coupon good for regular and sale item prices. Not bad, even with the high prices at Michael's.

If frames, for example, are 40% off on sale, you can get a further 20% off. I've purchased tonnes of poster frames and shadow boxes with this combo in the past. It's even cheaper in the US. Bellingham Michael's is across the street from Wal Mart and next to Costco.

Make sure you have US coupons from their US website before you go. Oh, they take on-line coupons from your electronic device, as well.

I purchased a skookum Ottllite from there at Christmas time at a 75% discount.

Please note that clearance items are "as is" price (no other coupons work). 40% coupon is for one single item. And, the 20% offer is for entire purchase.

I think this Saturday only for 4 hours, there is the 20% off coupon.

Boxing day and week was the best. They had a week long 50% off and a 30% off entire purchase offer.

not sure if this has been posted yet as i dont check this thread.

for those who drink milk, go to shoppers drug mart!

barely anyone goes to shoppers drug mart to buy milk so milk is always on sale there. earlier this week it was $4 off. normally its $2-$3 off. so the end total was $0.29 for 4L !! of course it means that the milk is going to expire soon. but my family consists of four. me, my brother and my parents. 4L is no biggie. for those who wonder which branch i go to, i go to the fraser branch.

^when milk is about to expire, I make pancakes. Lots of it. Once made, it keeps for a day or two. But when pancakes are made fresh, they're so good, they is gone in less than a day.

^We also find that the best before date is not 100% accurate, several time the milk has gone bad 1-2 days before the marked date.

Make sure its good to drink before you start chugging

As for milk at Shoppers, they sell quickly at my location. Price is lower than Costco, Safeway, No Frills, Superstore, etc.

I always dig for the ones that expire the latest. Will finish it way before, but getting the freshest possible is good. I often see dumb shoppers buying shit that expires in a few days, because they're too lazy to check out the date. However, more dumb shoppers = better for me, LOL.

actually milk doesn't always expire on the date stamped, it is a merely a suggestion of when it is best to drink before it goes bad

I had milk go bad a week before the expiry date and I had it not go bad a week after, so it varies

Best before does not mean expires on.

Best before means the product is best used before blah blah blah.

Expires on means do not eat after blah blah blah

As for the milk my family hasnt had a problem with it haha.

Before you guys think my family is over average in size I'm skinny as fuck and my parents are average and my mom is pretty slim. Both me an my brother drink at least 1L a day and like MG1, my mom makes pancakes, waffles etc and if they aren't eaten, she throws them in the freezer and we just put them in the toaster when we are hungry haha

Even if it expires tmrw, a few cups for $0.29 is a pretty good deal

But yeah, eat at your own risk

I lived off $100/week all of last year. For any/everything other than bills.

I like eating boxes of frozen chicken breasts but lately I've been buying family packs of extra lean ground beef that are discounted because they'll go bad. I divide up into 1lb containers and freeze it.

I recently learned that the first tuesday of every month Safeway gives you 10% off any purchase, it also stacks on with any other promotions.

Tomorrow only...... 50% off any one item at Michaels. Again, read fine print, as there are some restrictions.

Michaels Weekly Ad


Also, on the same page, there is a 25% off entire purchase including sale items. This came out of nowhere....... just got the email today.
