Default Simple 2 trip

My SIL gave me 2 of the $7/1 Oral B Replacement Head Q's & I knew just where to spend them! Was glad to see they still had some in stock, I grabbed 2. I also got a Venus Divine Razor priced under $8 & used the $5/1 q... Woohoo!

Yeah! WOW! Congratulations! If you ever want to leave HEB with a whole sack full of free groceries or even a whole cart full of free groceries (and save the 2 cents toward your children's college fund) ... try using the "out of date guarantee" ... all of have to do is let yourself have a fun little scavenger hunt around the store looking for expired items (sometimes in the front of the shelves - sometimes in the back, especially in the frozen section) and then you grab a non-expired duplicate item of each (limit one per like item or per UPC) and then you go to the regular register (NOT customer service) and simple make a pile of your expireds (the cashier will check your dates and cast them aside) and then sack up the duplicates - and home you go with sacks or cart fulls (depending on how much or long you look) complete free ... and even better than that is the service that you have done for the blind, those who don't see well, the elderly, disabled, or busy moms who just don't bother to look at the expiration dates ... so that people aren't wasting their money paying for items that could potentially make them sick, send them to the hospital, or even cause death!

Are you serious? I mean really? So if I find an out of date item I can take it along with the in date item to the register & get the in date item for free?!! What do I say to the cashier? This will help my family out immensely!

Yes only one of the same item. (example you find 5 cheezits out of date, you only get 1 free). Tell the cashier that you would like to take advantage of their "fresh or free " policy. If they give you trouble call corp at the register and they will back you up. You have to be doing your regular shopping while you do this.

See I have had no luck with the fresh or free even with an email from corp about it. I gave up trying long ago. Have even tried at several stores.

Yes, I am totally serious! Since I found out about this program it has totally revolutionized my life (there is also a thread devoted to this and it lists that particular products that everybody finds expired each day) ... in fact I no longer buy groceries anymore ... I get them free instead (I also get pet food, health and beauty products, and items that I use as gifts or in gift baskets).

Here's what you say to the cashier: "This pile of items is expired" and point to the first pile (I put these first, because the cashier to look through and cast them aside) "and this pile is the replacement products with HEB's out of date guarantee" (those will get sacked and returned to your cart) ... that's all you say ... super simple!

The "fresh or free" is much harder to get than the "out of date" guarantee ... and some people even get the two confused ... here's the difference (and you will see why the "free or free is totally subjective).

The "Out of Date" guarantee (feel free to google for specifics) says that when you find an item that is past the expiration date (also written as the best by date - sometimes abbreviated B.B.) that you get a duplicate replacement item that is still in date (limit one per like UPC).

The "fresh or free" is for items that don't have an expiration date ... so it is totally a personal opinion and therefore subjective as to whether an item is "fresh" ... a few times I have tried this with bruised fruit or moldy berries - some stores will give you a small limited amount, but most won't because you don't have a way to prove ...

I've searched online and I've never been able to find anyplace where this "fresh or free" policy is written out, legitimized ... so maybe it is just a word of mouth or even an urban myth ... but the "out date guarantee" is easily found online or any HEB should be willing to give you a copy (it's in the employee handbook, manuel, and cashier training). I personally use the "out of date guarantee everyday".

Yes, you do only get one of a like item ... but to continue using the cheese it's example (so tasty!) ... you could get one of each size (which has a different price and different UPC) as well as one of each flavor (asiago, white cheddar, provolone, snack mix , etc) ... if you could find different sizes and flavors expired, which is unlikely for cheese it's ... but not unlikely for Little Debbies, HEB bacon, HEB buddy grahams, kraft mayo, kraft salad dressing, HEB chips galore cookies, HEB pita chips (which are next to the cheese it's), and HEB diet canned sodas in the 5 packs.

You would think HEB would wise up after seeing all the things that are out of date and either check them more or rotate better.
