Re: FAO Sprouts

I just checked my Sprouts dqs and there's a coupon for vegan Tate's bakeshop chocolate chip cookies.  Ibotta has these as an offer at some stores but not Sprouts.  Hey, free's free...

Also, at my Sprouts,  the Lightlife isn't a true fao. I have a vegan friend that I might get it for anyway.  I have tried to like plant based "meat", but can't take the mushy texture. Yuk...

My thoughts about this are that this thread is for Sprouts.  We have always allowed posts to be made for an offer at a specific store even if in an existing thread was made mentioning it is offered at multiple or other stores.  There are some who will specifically open/read a thread because it says Sprouts that would not open a generic multi-store post about a particular item.

When I post a deal at Kroger for thingamajigs, and someone else wants to post a similar deal at Sprouts (or any other store), I understand that.  Not everyone has a Kroger or a Sprouts.)

To me, the single issue of thread removal is an absolute repost of the same item at the same store.  I honestly don't consider this a repost, and while I prefer that the title should have been something like 'FAO Sprouts Lightlife & Perfect Bars', that is only my preference.  I don't believe mods should either combine threads for this, remove the thread, or change the thread title.  There are no rules governing all the details 'required' for a new thread deal, and I certainly am not advocating there should be.

I think someone has a right to post a deal for one item and mention it is available at 'multiple stores', and I feel someone else is entitled to begin a new thread that narrows it down to one particular store, especially if the subsequent post is a moneymaker instead of an FAO.  

Again this is just my thoughts, but my reasoning for posting deals is to help someone save money, and I can best do that when I tailor my threads to a particular store such as Kroger, Meijer, or WM.

tl;dr:  I see nothing wrong with this thread and don't consider it a repost because it will help its intended audience better since it is targeting a particular store. audience.
