Weekly Deals from Walgreens

Starting March 1st, Giant Eagle will end double coupons! Again! The first time they ended it years ago they brought them back after much backlash from Northeast Ohio consumers.

Needless to say, I will be reducing my shopping at Giant Eagle. After they closed two local stores they made it harder to shop there. Now the new rules will save consumers less money. They are now even with stores that don’t double. Dave’s Supermarket and Buehler’s still double, so I will look to shift some of my shopping to Dave’s Supermarket as there are some nearby. Doubles made Giant Eagle stand out in a crowded grocery market. Not anymore.

Not only that, if you earn less than 50 Fuelperks in a month, your perks will be reset to zero at the end of that month. So you will have to get your gas at GetGo gas stations using your Fuelperks each month or they will be lost. Read the new Perks policy at:

I posted on their Facebook page and their reply made no sense. They said:
Customer usage of manufacturer coupons continues to decrease both in our stores and across the grocery industry. With only a fraction of manufacturer coupons qualifying for doubling, the majority of customers never realized savings through this program. We instead will be focusing on other ways to enhance savings opportunities for customers, and look forward to sharing more details in the near future. Recognizing that many customers rely on coupons as one of the ways they save in our stores, Giant Eagle customers will continue to be able to redeem coupons in-store at face value. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Then why get rid of them if there are so few using coupons that double? Why upset loyal coupon shoppers when doubling isn’t much of a hit on their bottom line? Part of the reason people aren’t saving as much using coupons is because you have so many limits on how many can be used! And it’s inconvenient that I can’t save as much money now? Tell that to a family that will get less groceries for their kids because they can’t save as much. They obviously didn’t think through their reasoning.

I get that stores need to make a profit and grocery stores run on very thin margins. However, if you get rid of doubles because you are touting you have ecoupons – so does every other grocery store! Sure, there are other unique ways to save at Giant Eagle, but you just made one of them tougher to use by forcing customers to use their Gas Perks to the point some customers will lose the Perks they earned! Not to mention your Perks point program is confusing. How much is 50 Perks worth? What’s 2X Perks worth?

Many other stores have gotten rid of doubles, including Kroger and most of its affiliates. Recently, Kroger’s Milwaukee-based Roundy’s division, which includes the chains Pick ‘n Save, Copps, Mariano’s and Metro Market, will no longer offer double coupons.

Doubling debuted in the 70’s and stopped for a couple decades before returning again at the height of couponing around 2000. Coupon usage has waned since the Extreme Couponing show debuted and caused stores to tighten up their coupon rules. There are less coupons available (especially on food items), shorter expiration dates, and tighter rules on coupons themselves, including the limit of one coupon allowed per purchase. It’s no wonder people are getting turned off by coupons. However, you can still get freebies or close to free items using coupons at area stores, so the allure is still there.

Wal-mart even tested double coupons in Madison many years ago. There might be a time when double coupons will be a trend again!

With Giant Eagle we’ll be hearing they lowered prices. We all know how that works. They lower them, blitz ads about it and then they increase the prices months later only to repeat it again the next year. In the Cleveland area people know Marc’s has good everyday low prices, although they were better years ago. You’ll find their everyday prices are lower than Giant Eagle, but they don’t have sales. Giant Eagle has some good sales, but their everyday prices can be high and many people don’t shop there for that reason.

With Meijer’s new to the market people are going there. Giant Eagle also closed some Cleveland stores along with Willoughby Hills and moved one in Mentor close to another store. They have closed stores in other markets, including exiting the Toledo market. Fresh Thyme, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Lucky’s Market, Sav-a-Lot and Sweet Berry are just some of the new stores to the area since Giant Eagle established itself after buying Stop-n-Shop. Aldi is also building new stores everywhere. So Giant Eagle’s market share is shrinking.

Giant Eagle tried to enter the “no frills” Aldi-like stores by opening Valu King/Good Cents. They faltered when they didn’t offer double coupons and were just a cheap version of Giant Eagle, including their bakery and meats section. It didn’t ooze quality and prices weren’t much different than a regular Giant Eagle. Aldi is at least trying to offer quality foods with a good organic and non-“chemicaled” foods. People know that food has become “manufactured” and they are trying to stay away from any place that doesn’t promote healthy offerings.

However, Aldi doesn’t take coupons, so why shop there? Well, 90% of what they sell are store brand items. So it’s hard to even find items they sell that match up with a coupon. They fit a niche of low priced produce and dairy that draws shoppers. That’s pretty much all I buy there. Produce and dairy rarely have coupons available for those items too, so it makes sense to find everyday low prices on those items.

Read their new Giant Eagle coupon policy here:

Clevelanders are very frugal and can sniff out deals, so they will have a critical eye on Giant Eagle’s move. Many shoppers will stop shopping there altogether now that they got rid of doubles. So it’s time to shop Buehlers and Dave’s Supermarket as they still double coupons of .99 and less and check out other stores. Here are links to their ads:

Here’s a story on the change:

No more Happy Hour in Ibiza! Spain has decided to curb alcohol consumption by banning happy hours, trips on party boats, alcohol-selling machines, shops selling alcohol in the areas at certain times and pub crawls in Magaluf, Ibiza and parts of Palma. The new law bans ‘balconing’ – jumping from hotel balconies into swimming pools.

Fines for those who break the new laws could range from $6,500 to $650,000. Those happy hours would then turn into unhappy years.

Store closing at Westage Mall. All items are 30-50% off.

This story is a continuation from last weeks blog about our trip to Australia and cruise over to New Zealand.

We met a lot of great people from all over the world on the trip. Luckily, none from the Wuhan province in China. One couple from Dallas, we had dinner with a couple times. He surprised us with a poem near the end of the cruise that he wrote about us, mostly about us from what he gleaned listening to us. It wasn’t about how we had food dropping out of our mouths during dinner, but about how nice we are (we fooled them!) and what we did in our lives from work to hosting. And no, he wasn’t drunk or a creeper.

Another great couple we met from Australia taught us about Australian slang words. Bustin to go to the Dunny means you had to go to the bathroom. Dead Set Wanker means an idiot. Apparently there is consensus in Australia who is one in the U.S. They also don’t say Australia. It’s more like ‘Straya’.


When the coronavirus issue was peaking in the news they made some changes on the ship. Around half-way into the cruise we could no longer serve ourselves in the cafeteria. The workers had to serve us, including coffee and water. They were also more vigilent about ‘washy, washy’. It was what they would say when they would spray your hands with disinfectant when you would go to the cafeteria. All cruise ships do it because they know how nasty people can be not washing their hands, especially after going to the bathroom.

Coming back from New Zealand I expected to see a ton of people wearing masks, but there weren’t that many. With customs they asked if you had been to mainland China in the past 14 days.


On the ship they had an ABBA tribute band. Very fitting as we are both ABBA fans. The one singer, Hollie Cavanaugh, was on American Idol and finished fourth the year Philip Philips won. Another one, Candace Glover, had her own show on the ship and she was winner of season 12.

One thing to try while on cruises is their raffles. They usually raffle jewelry, artwork, or spa credits. A few are on the first day of the cruise and those give you the best chances to win because people may enter, but get busy since they just got on the ship or forget to show up for the raffle in which you need to be present to win. My wife won a $75 credit for the spa.

I didn’t win anything in the raffles. The casino either…until almost at the end of the cruise. I use the casino as entertainment and don’t expect to win anything. When I win more than what I started with I usually cash out. Keeps me from losing all the money even though it’s not as fun and I don’t play for long at times. I try to get a sense of a good machine. I saw one and stopped at it. Then I went around to see if anything else was giving me a good vibe. I then came back to the original machine.

I put in $20 into a slot machine and max bet it. Max betting can be expensive and you may only play a few pulls of the lever, but they can win you lots more. Each bet was $5. First one nothing. Second one it hit and it be-bopped and got me some bonus spins. I saw 9 something and figured I won around $10 which I though was pretty lame for a $5 bet. Then I realized it might be more when I saw it showed something like nine hundred something and change so I cashed out to see what the amount really was. The ticket spits out and I turn it around and sure enough, it was for $991! Yay for me! We’re back in black! I’ve never won that much money. Usually it’s a $20 scratch-off ticket winner. I’ll use if for college for the kids or braces or to pay fines. Oh wait, I don’t have kids or want braces again and don’t owe any fines. I’ll use part of it to get 32 tubes of toothpaste for almost free instead.


After leaving Tasmaina which is a state in Australia we made our way to New Zealand. It took two days at sea to get there. Our first glimpse of New Zealand were a handful of sounds, Dusky, Milford and Doubtful. They said even though they were named sounds they are really fiords. Amazing views of cascading waterfalls. The area was used to film the Lord of the Rings.

Then we went to ports in Napier to do a winery tour in Malborough, New Zealand’s premiere wine region producing some of the best Sauvignon Blancs in the world. Spy Valley Winery had some nice wines and views. There and many other places we met people, especially the wineries, from the states that relocated to New Zealand. Most were on work visas, but some eventually relocated permanently.


In Dunedin we took a tour. Saw the world’s steepest street. Also walked up it. Man, was that rough. Felt like I was walking straight up the side of a building. At a nearby beach we came across a pregnant New Zealand sea loin.


In Christchurch we saw the damage from a couple big earthquakes this past decade. The earthquake caused liquification of the ground causing much of the city to be damaged extensively. Many of the churches were still in ruin and being restored.


We went punting there. No, not kicking a football, but it’s what they call taking a canoe up and down a river. It’s the same as a Gondola ride. Great views.

Found a great deal on t-shirts. The funny thing is that it was the end of summer clearance sale. Yes, when it’s winter here it’s summer there. It was only $5 for the shirt and with the exchange rate it made it around $3.50.


In Turanga we visited a Maori (native people of New Zealand) house of worship. Then we went to a high school where students performed cultural dances, including ones where they made faces and stuck out their tongue. They asked for volunteer for a Poi dance (Poi look like puffy dumplings on strings used with the dances) for the women and I asked one of the girls to pick my wife. She did and that meant I had to do it when it was the guys turn. I did the one where we stomp and make faces and stick my tongue out of which comes naturally for me.

We went to the beach when we got back. Man, was the water cold in spots. I snorkeled and saw a huge stingray, at least 5 foot across. Another area I saw tons of bat rays in shallow water.


Off the coast of Turanga is White Island, or more infamously know as the volcano that recently erupted and killed people visiting it on an excursion from a cruise ship. It was about 100 miles from shore. I didn’t see any plumes of smoke from it. I could imagine the fear of the people on the island thinking how cool it was to be so close to a volcano and then seconds later running for their lives. When you are on vacation you never think you will be in harms way.

Years ago in Hawaii we were on an excursion on the Big Island and we walked through a dormant volcano field and through old lava tubes. Not far from there was an active volcano that at the time was spewing lava into the ocean. You could see it from the ship and it glowed at night. To think the situation wasn’t all that different.


In Picton we rented bikes to visit wineries. I figured it was maybe 5 miles or so, but they said the route was around 40 kilometers. I asked what that was in miles and he said around 25 miles. Woah. We were short on time, so we went fast and luckily it was flat. A couple we met on the cruise saw us and said they noticed how fast we were going. On part of the trail we came across a mulch processing plant. It smelled horrible, so that made us peddle faster.

We made a stop at McDonalds for a quick bite to eat. And yes, the Big Mac there tasted like Big Macs at home.

We stopped at a few wineries and bought a couple bottles. We found Church Bay Winery had the best wine of all the wineries we visited in New Zealand. On the way back we had to ride our bikes under a bridge where the bike path was flooded about a foot of water from high tide.


In Auckland we made a trip to Waiheke island via a ferry for a winery tour with tics I got from Groupon. The wineries had the most stunning views and landscaping. The ferry tics we got online on their site at a discount at

The one guy serving us at one of the wineries said how bad the drought was there. He said he is just about out of water (they have to purchase water to put into their tanks) and he plans to stop washing his hair and bath in the ocean. Hmmm. No.


Our last stop was in Auckland. The harbor had some nice bars and restaurants. Some had some great happy hour deals. One place had a pizza for $10 (or $7 in USD) that was great and that was an everyday price.

While in Auckland I got a haircut! Instead of my usual Best Cuts/Great Clips visit I went to a shop in downtown Auckland. She did a great job. I’m just glad she didn’t skiff the side of my head with a big bald spot. Not knowing how good or bad she was had my heart racing, but in the end I’d go back to her. Just a little pricey to fly back there for a haircut.


We spoke to our taxi driver about things in New Zealand. He said the minimum wage was $15 for kids and $18 for adults and he said that’s partly why there are less homeless and thefts there.

There is also no tipping. You can, but it’s not expected. The taxi driver asked us why the U.S. tips and I told him how low the minimum wage was at $7.25 an hour and that tipping makes up for the low wages as restaurant workers get paid even less.

Some restaurants charged a surcharge. It’s kind of a forced tip. Usually it was 10% or 15% of the bill. Very few did, but more do on national holidays.

There is an Entertainment book for New Zealand. It cost $69.99 for one year or $119.99 for one year for multiple countries (Australia, New Zealand and Bali). You can find it at:


Prices were high on most everything in New Zealand. The pic above shows Ben & Jerry’s ice cream pint for over $14! Being in the middle of the Pacific doesn’t help with getting items on the cheap.

Coupons are not used much. There are no coupon inserts in newspapers. I did find one coupon on a cereal jar that I used.

There were coupons in the tourist magazines you find at the hotels and airport. Most were for entertainment, but there were some for restauarants.

Bat Ray

I had my cell phone turned off the whole trip (I don’t have a smartphone). If anyone had to get a hold of me, they could via e-mail (I had my laptop and a tablet). The unlimited e-mail package was expensive though at $234 after discounts. We got free wi-fi in spots at different ports or we used our free wi-fi minutes I got from the cruiseline. Usually, they offer deals for wi-fi later into the cruise. Not on this trip. My right arm thanked me for not being on the computer so much.

One site helped with finding out transportation options. At it showed the times and all to take a bus, ferry, car, train, or walk to a destination.

On the flight back the stewardess said that there was fog in San Francisco so we had to go in a holding pattern and that we may have to divert to San Jose. Not what I wanted to hear. Two minutes later she said we would land in San Fran. Whew! Another flight disaster averted.

The flights there and back are nearly 30 straight hours each of being awake, at the airport or on the plane. We transitioned quick since we stayed up during daylight hours when we got there. Coming back was tough. My brain still feels like it’s somewhere in the Pacific. Now if I can only figure out a way to transport my physical body to meet up with it I can probably land in Hawaii somewhere.
