    Hey Gretchen, on the pork loin you could have bought 5 of them with the downloaded coupon! We got all 5 and cut them up ourselves. Great deal!!

      I actually knew that but since I’ve never bought pork loin before and wasn’t sure if my family would like it, I decided to just buy one. 😉 Such a GREAT deal though!!! – Gretchen, MSM Team
