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

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.
I'll try it. Worst that can happen is that I leave them at the checkout if it doesn't work, right?

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.

I think it is the personalized deals. That's how I understand it.

Yeah, this price for strawberries was only available back when they first introduced the program, I think.

For some reasons the cheese ended up free for me -- I can't explain why. I bought two and used just one of the IP coupons, but I seemed to have extra J4U ecoupons come off that I wasn't aware of. Score on the cereal -- I didn't get that offer.
Yea, it's really weird on my receipt, but I KNEW not to try 2 Q's on 2 on a BOGO deal (the other Q usually doesn't go through IME due to the J4U and SW's latest Q policy).

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

Yeah, no idea how that one really works, but the answer is that if you buy 3 packages, they end up being 0.99 total! Sale continues through Sunday, 4/23 (Easter), from what I'm seeing/hearing.

Quote from ReeCh View Post :
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.
The J4U Q's are largely MQs NOT store Q's. SO, what happens is that the J4U Q usually will not be credited to your account, or rather, it is added once the store card stuff is applied, but will fall off (not unlike some of Raley's website Q's) when you scan over a "second" MQ that overrides the J4U Q. Really not good if you are not planning properly.

BUT, these personal prices DO stack with MQs. So that is nice. Even nicer with BOGO sales!!!

Does it work on any brand?
Do you remember which ones you got? (sometimes they have the Driscoll's and some other ones).
ThanksSmilie
My store had Driscoll's AND Legacy Farms, so if you have Driscoll's IPQs left, you can use at least 2 of the 0.50/1, likely. I'm also aware that some stores have $1/$5 produce purchase Q's at the courtesy desk? I think it works, since it takes off the total BEFORE the Safeway card? I guess that doesn't make sense, though, unless you buy enough strawberries to make the after card discount price $5. I haven't personally tried it, but a blogger has mentioned it. And I did buy the Legacy Farms ones and it worked.

My store had Dole strawberries and they worked fine with the deal. I was able to purchase 6 for $1.98,

Do you see the image for shredded cheese in 'My offers'? When you click on the image it will ask for name/address etc.

Raley's nob hill:
There is Free 2 Avocados Q with $10 purchase.

And there is 2 for $5 Bonne Maman preserves. I love their Plum preserves and have bought them before for a lot more than 2 for $5!

Was just going to post this Big Grin

Free Avocados if your grocery preference is wine, beer and spirits.

This bag looks sooo much nicer than the stupid Target bag I got...the color bleeds on that too!

I got 6 packages for $1.98 this morning. I have the J4U price of $2.49 and I received a $6.00 discount for my J4U
Here is what I think is going on.
The system is taking $1.50 off each of the FREE packages instead of taking off $1.50 for the one you pay for.
I got 6 packages - 4 of them were free. 4x$1.50 = $6.00

Great deal!

My store had both Dole and Seabest strawberries... I bought 3 seabest and it did not work... My bad for not reading the posts correctly. I didnt feel like leaving them at the checkstands so i just bought them. The JFU pricing did not work so it was 3.99 for 3 packets of strawberries
