What Are Your Thoughts?

conversation 1

I’m actually at a loss of words when we start talking about the treatment of couponers at Bi-lO and how several hundred of you are very irritated with the new coupon change.
I can say this….your complaints are not falling on deaf ears. I am completely baffled the way Bi-LO has changed towards couponers because I thought the sole idea of business was to encourage shoppers to their store.
Let me explain my difficulty with Bi-LO….I realize we at iheartbi-lo are not an extremely large site but we are popular and gaining readers. I have ran into several Bi-LO managers that would not give us the ad early (as we are used to) because they don’t want it to get out to their competitors. Well, as most of you couponers know…THAT IS THE WHOLE IDEA OF COUPONING! Not to mention any names but their are other sites that are specific to a particular grocery store and they don’t seem to have any trouble getting the ad early and helping others save money while shopping at their store. Bi-LO is not making it easy on me either, shopping or grabbing the ad.

This idea maybe far fetched but I’m going to say it anyway…Maybe we all should keep the comments coming about what stores are doing. Comment on what stores are mistreating you and what you believe is the down fall of their coupon policy. How does it effect your household? They can not ignore the fact that the average shopper is trying to save money as much as they possibly can and if they are not treated like descent human beings rather than common petty thieves, then we will take our business elsewhere. If many of you comment on this post I will send it on to Bi-LO’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Let see if we can make a change.

Home Sweet Home

Howdy guys! I’m back!!!! It was great to get away but like all vacations it’s hard to come back to reality. My family and I went to Texas for 16 days. Yea, as you can imagine I needed a vacation from my vacation.
Vacation with kids is exhausting! But, we had a ball. We are back home safe and sound, trying to get back into the swing of things.

Good news and Bad news:

Before I left I let you know that my Bi-LO was changing so I will not be able to get that ad anymore because it is for a certain area. Good news: I have another Bi-LO to get the ad from but the ad doesn’t come till Monday. So this may be the end of getting early ad previews.

Couple Of Announcements

images

Hey guys just wanted to let you know that I’m  am heading out on a family vacation from June 24 till July 10.  I made a promise to my husband that I wouldn’t work while we are out of town so with that being said I will not have the ad for 7/2 on the site.
I have this coming weeks ad but I have gotten word that “my” Bi-LO is becoming a Hometown Bi-LO and their ad is different from the rest. Some deals are the same but basically the meats are different. I will post this coming weeks ad but I probably won’t be able to grab the ad from another store before I head out.

Bi-LO e-coupons (What Are Your Thoughts?)

conversation

So it’s been rumored that Bi-LO is no longer accepting e-coupons as store coupons. They are considered manufacture coupons. Earlier today I went to Bi-LO and bought last minute Breyer’s ice cream; and while I was at the cash register I realized that I added the $3/3 Breyer’s e-coupon to my card. Then it dawned on me what I heard about e-coupons but I was ready to use the manufacture and competitor coupon in my transaction. To my excitement my deal went through smoothly but I still wondered with all the business changes that the Bi-LO corporation has made lately, Did they change their coupon policy too?
I asked my store manager if what I heard was correct and he conformed that Bi-LO e-coupons are in fact manufacture coupons but here is the bottom line…
If the register doesn’t beep and alert the cashier then it will take all the coupons.

What are your thoughts on this subject? Will this change effect your Bi-LO shopping?

How Did Your Triple Shopping Go?

post brags

So we’ve gotten tons of feedback these tripling days and we really appreciate it.  It has helped all of us save money. Now, this is just from the rumor mill but I was told that Bi-LO may have triple coupon day every now and again. Wouldn’t that be awesome!?

Did anyone have trouble at their stores? I know that Bi-LO set limits on how many “like” coupons we can have; was your Bi-LO lenient? or Did they follow every rule to the “T”.

We all have one more day of Triples so I wish you all the best.

Now, post your brags! Tell us what what was your lowest transaction cost? Also, let us know what you stocked up on.
