    Agreed.
    What is wrong with our Canadian grocery stores? Instore day care keeps customers shopping longer and buying more.
    I also liked when she got gift cards at the end of her order for about $50 and had a $25 coupon to use in the pharmacy. She saved 103%.

    We got some catching up to do, with our Canadian stores.

    Not enough competition, so no reason to provide additional incentives to attract customers.

    I think it was this product:




    Perhaps this is one of the many reasons that obesity is such an epidemic, because people are buying their LOWFAT yogurt with a quarter cup of chocolate m&m's on top and I bet kids are being told that yogurt is healthy for them. Gross.

    If I would get these free. I would get these for sure. I would just remove the M&M,s from the top of it. Them being in a seperate containers provide you with the option to use them or not.

    You can always replace these with nuts of fresh fruits.. Miam miam..

    It's an epidemic because parents are buying foods like these for their kids. They're training them early to like, and be addicted, to sugar.

    I think it's not as bad as everyone makes it out too be. I know I don't want to be judged when i go in and use a few coupons here and there to save a few bucks off my grocery bill. They just took it to the extreme.

    I saw an episode where a lady left a store with $3000 worth or food yes three thousand! And the store PAID her $50 dollars (gift card) to take it all....I don't know about any of you but that is AMAZING! She donated a lot of it to the humane society and local shelters because she didn't need it all, but I say anyone who knocks them are the stupid one's for not aiming for a free bill...

    And yes I am under no false assumption that I will ever get a negative bill, but it's nice to hope

    As much as I love M&Ms, the thought of the two textures together is gag-worthy. If I could get them free I'd totally just fill a baggie with the M&Ms and eat the yogurt. BUT I agree that they're marketed to kids to get them to eat yogurt (which I find weird because my kid is obsessed with plain ol' yogurt, he doesn't need candy incentives to eat it, and has never had candy anyway). This yogurt is totally part of the problem. Stupid America.

    That last ep was pretty spectacular. Good job for that woman getting paid $57 to take home $2000 worth out of the store.... she has easily been the best so far and on top of that she works a full time job. I have never heard of a stores that gives a gift card back for overages and most of the people on the show before said stores don't do that.... that store is awesome.

    I feel bad for people that want to use coupons after these people already did their shopping trips cuz they literally clear the shelves of all the products on sale and leave nothing for anyone else.



    I earned $50 in Amazon Gift Cards in my first month at Swagbucks!!
