RVA Deals

This weekend is a sales tax holiday in Virginia! Quick, go buy all the school supplies and clothing/footwear that you need. Note: rubber pants are eligible. In other news, tomatos are on sale!

Editor’s note: Also, guys, this weekend is a sales tax holiday in Virginia. School supplies under $20 and clothing/footwear under $100 are eligible. The list of eligible clothing is pretty bizarre–a sampling: neckties, rubber pants, insoles, fur coats, children & adult diapers, lingerie, choir/altar clothing, and corset laces.

Get more information over at the Department of Taxation.

Notice: Comments that are not conducive to an interesting and thoughtful conversation may be removed at the editor’s discretion.

  1. Re: the $2 peanut butter at Martin’s. If you use the 75 cent coupon, does Martin’s give you the extra 25 cents? You said it only costs a dollar. Not familiar with Martin’s coupon policy.

  2. BHW – Yes, sorry for not being clear on the math! MARTIN’S doubles coupons up to a $1 value – so they “double” a $.75 coupon with an extra $.25 savings to make the total discount $1. Same with a $.55 coupon – value “doubles” to $1 after an extra $.45 savings.

    Only one of each kind of coupon will double

  3. Regarding Kroger’s “Deal of the Day” coupons – they aren’t for free items this time unfortunately BUT quantities aren’t nearly as limited as they have been before. Today you can load a coupon for $2 off Cottonelle toilet paper!

  4. Alison, Thanks for clearing up the Martin’s coupon policy.

    Does Kroger also “double” the 55 cent or 75 cent coupons?

    BTW, glad you’re back!
