From Texas and I do remember now that it's been mentioned hearing  it called a buggy.  I think it is now most often called a shopping cart.  But the more I think about it, I'm pretty sure I can hear myself saying to a husband to "grab a buggy".

I can hear it in Dark Boyfriend's mother's voice, too, and that's why I'm sure I've also heard Dark Boyfriend say it; though I ask him now and he says it's a cart and he has never called it a buggy.  Then again, he also swears that he never said he hates mac and cheese even though four other people sitting there heard him say it, too.  "Why would I say that?  I love mac and cheese."  "I don't know, DB, why do you change your mind about things all of the time then forget you did?"  ::)

Yup, its a cart.  A "shopping cart" if being mentioned out of context (like when its on a the sidewalk or an apartment building super is using it to haul stuff) and just a "cart" when actually at the store "hey would you grab a cart while I grab the circular?"  (The "circular" being the weekly listings of sales & coupons... which is not circular at all but shaped like a newspaper ::) )

That'd just be 'the ad' here (TX).

It's a flyer here in my part of Ontario.
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

Hmm, here a flier is just a paper tacked to a bulletin board, street post or such, or something someone hands to you on the street (similar in content, but different in distribution, I guess).

I've heard it referred to as a "basket", which causes some confusion as I think a "basket" is one of those little baskets that hangs off one's arm for quick shopping trips. I've also heard "wagon".

I call it a cart, and I've taken to checking the ads online rather than try to grab them at the store; it's a planning thing.

That's a flyer in NYC too (on a bulletin board or handed to you, etc), although if someone called the grocery store coupon pamphlet thingie a flyer I wouldn't bat an eye or probably even register the word.
