Franny The Shopaholic: Please explain how one gets your sale items with digital coupons. Is it possible to get the sale price without the digital coupon? — Barbara Rainear, Ocean City
Dear Barbara: You cannot get the sale price without the digital coupons. To get the digital coupons you must sign up at Acmemarkets.com and open an account. Go to the link “Coupons and Deals,” click and there you will see all the coupons, you will have to click each one you want to use. If you have a Smart Phone you need to download the Acme Market app and again sign up, then go to the link Just for U and click each digital coupon you want to use. With ShopRite, go to Shop.ShopRite.com and sign up and basically do the same thing. Click digital coupons and click each one you want to use. Or download the ShopRite app on your smart phone and sign up and click the coupons you want. I emailed you the links to do it on your computer.
Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I cannot find Clorox Gel Spray with Bleach anywhere for purchase. I recently emailed Clorox to ask if it is discontinued. They replied that it is still in production but I think they erroneously believe I am referring to Clorox “clean up” spray with bleach, which is available in many stores. I wonder if you may be able to find out if indeed the Gel Spray is available for purchase. It really works wonders and I hope it can still be purchased by consumers. — Marianne Carrigan
Dear Marianne: According to the Clorox website it looks like they still make it. However, if you put in the Atlantic City zip code no store within a 100 miles carries it. It is not even on Amazon.com or Ebay.com. I am sure if any of our readers see it, they will write in. Just thinking, can you substitute Clorox Toilet Cleaner with Bleach, which is a gel?
Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I have a very old (circa mid-1990s) GE counter top microwave model J E1040GB 001. It still works fine. However the glass turntable broke. I have the GE part number AP2031713 (WB49X10022). They are no longer in stock. They have changed the design so newer ones do not work. Can you let me know where I might be able to find someone who would carry such an old item? — Suzanne Pelkaus, Marmora
Dear Suzanne: I found a GE turntable replacement, however it does not have any model number, on Ebay.com. It is 6¾ inches round. You have to bid on it. This is the only place I think you may be able to get lucky and find one. Have you tried calling All Brands in Egg Harbor Township at 609-641-1036?
