Thread Details

Mod Edit: This will become the new Northern California Grocery Stores Thread.

Thank you to missusg and mcube for starting up threads for the individual stores for Northern California.

Due to how the timestamp works - it is with apologies to mcube (who started the Lucky thread) that your post is now #141 -- When a thread is merged the posts go in timestamp order.

Please note that there is a 30 day rule for reps -- so any post greater than 30 days old cannot be repped.

This message to remain for the next 24 hours so that our NoCal users can get used to this. Smilie

    I found no Dentyne and Celsicius Q's in Sac Bee either. By the way, any deal for Ducolax right now. I remember few months ago, there was RR deal at WAGS but I didn't buy any, and now, I need it badly for a member of family. Anyone in Sac has it ? I can pay PP. Thanks

    Dulcolax comment - I used to get it from Pharmaca pharmacy but got the generic straight from the pharmacist. 100 pills of 250 MG Ducosate Sodium for about $6, fully half price from the Dulcolax brand in the store, people just don't know to ask for it from the pharmacist.

    At Lucky's yesterday, they had the large box of Pampers Cruisers on clearance for $21.99, about the same price that folks here on SD are freaking out about for the Amazon Subscribe and Save deal. I was so sad that they only had size 3 left and I need size 4 Frown The person in front of me at the SCO paid and left his $3/1 any Pampers Cruisers CAT - what a tease! Totally YMMV but wanted to mention it. These were the Cruisers WITHOUT the Dry MAx which I'm desperately looking for as my baby was one of the babies that got the hideous rash from the new Dry Max kind.

    Quote from theloo View Post :
    I missed out on the Heinz ketchup. But can you explain the strawberries deal? I see it at $2.49. If I buy one pound and get 2 pounds free, should it be 3# for $2.49? I don't see how you got 9# for $2.97. Confused
    Sure! I'm quoting from my receipt here.

    The deal in the ad is to buy one package at $3.99 and get two free.

    I bought nine packages at $3.99 each, total of $35.91
    I received a card savings of $23.94 for the advertised B1G2F deals
    I also received a discount of $9.00 for the J4U price. What it did was to take $1.50 off of each package of strawberries.

    So my total ended up as $35.91- 23.94 - 9.00 == 2.97.

    Quote from Thriftymomof2 View Post :
    Quick question on the Safeway JFU program. If I add a coupon to my card from JFU, can I also use a MQ on the same item?! I don't do SF too much and I feel like I may be missing out on some good deals. I just may start going once or twice a month (depending on the deals) TIA Smilie
    I think the answer is yes. Their coupon policy is vague but their blog is more clear.

    The blog [safeway.com] says (on 2/7/11) "Yes, you can use a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon for the same item."

    The coupon policy is here. [safeway.com] It doesn't address stacking store and MQ and doesn't talk about the J4U program at all.

    Does it work on any brand?
    Do you remember which ones you got? (sometimes they have the Driscoll's and some other ones).

    The brand was Berrylicious. A couple posters on the My Frugal Adventures blog said that it worked for them on Driscoll's.

    I don't think this will work for me, I did not get this J4U pricing on strawberries, under my personalized deals.

    so this may be ymmv.
