I knew better, but for whatever reason I waited to go back last night to buy the $.39/lb chicken leg quarters. And of course, they were out! I spoke to several people who show different Food World stores and they had the same problem. IF you go to Food World and your store is out, BE SURE TO ASK FOR A RAINCHECK! What?! A rainchek? Oh yes! I got a raincheck on the leg quarters and the strawberries without having to make the $15 obligatory purchase at that moment. Plus, the manager I spoke with said the rainchecks are good for two weeks. Be sure to get yours!

Also, while shopping, be on the lookout for the following coupons I found at Food World:

$1/1 package of frozen Tyson Individually Frozen Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (this coupon has a picture of the Tyson Chicken PLUS a picture of a Miller Lite Bottle because it is "compliments of Miller Lite" exp 7/31/10
