Thanks a bunch for this information!! I always wondered who did what. I always make a list and take it into Walmart with all the ad's for the week - which has been great.

But, I always wondered if other stores matched the ad's too. Thanks for giving us the heads up.

I also love that you let us know that Winco is accepting on-line coupons... I've gotten burned by this before and ended up not taking the items because they wouldn't accept the coupon. I'm glad they've changed their policy (with caution).

Thanks again! I love your site!
