You have to be unemployed , welfare mom to snag the specials cause while we work they pillage the deals

Or you have to be married to a man/woman making a decent salary so you have the opportunity to take care of the kids the traditional way instead of being forced to farm them out to daycare.

Best thing is just take the flyer and go to Walmart and price match. I find this at No Frills, but also other grocery stores. There often is low stock or little selection for some sale items. I just take the flyer and go to Walmart. Price matching there is very quick and easy and they more frequently have the item in stock than the stores with the sale. Having said that, I do sometimes shop at No Frills, but have been doing more and more price matching at Walmart because of the issue you mention (and it isn't just on Thursdays). I also tried a price match twice at No Frills under their new price matching policy and it wasn't easy and took a lot of time as they have to call a manager, get them to come over and sign the flyer and they have to keep the flyer in their till. Not simple or quick at all.

Can you get a raincheck?
I always do that with other stores.

Nope. No Frills doesn't offer rain checks. I actually did mention in one of my posts in the thread, that would be a way for them to ease some of these customer complaints, but it isn't something they do so it is often best to price match somewhere else. I still do go to No Frills for some of the No Name products I do like (and can only get at the Loblaws chain of stores) and will pick up some other things while I'm there.

no frills needs to start carrying that PC Guacamole mix so I don't need to make a special trip to Loblaws anymore :)

One reason that may prevent rainchecks are several products that NF has on sale are not always regularly carried at all stores and some may be one time things. This includes a few brands of cheese that usually have a good sale price, those 2lb strawberries, many of the cryovac meats, I recall a few bread brands, and just think about the semi annual dollar ad merchandise portions. These would make the raincheck useless.

That makes sense also. I'm sure customers would be even more upset if they couldn't get the product when it was on sale AND they couldn't use the raincheck later on :)
