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've got a few extra inserts with the Nivea's in them if anyone is interested. It's not a ROAK but rarely do I have extra's on a good week. I know some people in here didn't get them so if you're interested PM me heart

In one of my papers got ad for Fresh & Easy market
nice prices, says their own brand has "no HFCS, transfats added, artificial colors/flavors"
Good: includes $3/30 and $10/50
bad: exp 4/25 and SJ stores open 4/27!!!
Our Fresh & Easy store opened a month and a half ago (Pacifica). I was really excited for the opening, but now...meh. They gave away free (cheap) canvas bags with any purchase on their grand opening day, so I was happy to get a new bag. Like a previous poster said, the store is small and has limited national brands. Almost all of their produce is pre-packaged which I still find weird, but their strawberries are the most freshest I've ever found. They've had coupons every week so far in the circular (and will give extras out the first week they are opened) so don't worry about the ones you received expiring. So far I'm not impressed. I'll go for good specials like Smithfield ham this week for .77/lb but probably won't buy anything else. Their store brand fresh made salsa is really good. Also their boneless, skinless chicken breast is always $1.99/lb (or cheaper if on sale), but they are HUGE! One breast feeds both my DH and I. I actually prefer to get the SW Eating Right chicken breasts on sale for the same price that are a more normal size. You can also sign up your e-mail on their website to get their newsletter and the first one will have a coupon for a free canvas bag. Be careful, the coupon will expire within 7 days, so don't sign up until they open. Also, it takes quite a few hours for it to show up in your email inbox, so don't request it as you're ready to walk out the door (I learned my lesson!).

No worries and thanks to you both Grouphug
Reps all around for the info heart
I'm going to have to get a new Safeway Card since our card # is MIA and Csvc couldn't help us with it. We're just too used to using our phone # Sadwalk
I've heard about others combining their SW cards. You may want to get a new card using the same phone number your old card had that you've been using, then call customer service and have the two accounts combined. The reason this is beneficial is that your old card has your buying history on it and you will get better deals if it is linked to the new card. For example, I get lots of free item personalized prices offered with my card since I use it for everything, but my father (who rarely shops) signed up his card and does not get the free offers. So it's good to link a new card to the old one (if your old one is missing) so your history will benefit you.

Hi guys!

I've been away for awhile but slowly making a comeback. Baby is 5.5 months old and I'm back at work!

There's a $10/20 kohls sticky on today's SF examiner. Usually when it's on the Examiner, it's also on the Chronicle and the Sac Bee. If you're in need, let me know, I'll try to score a few more today.

I heard it was but the source wasn't that reliable so it's probably a 50/50.
It's worth the drive... those Q's are like gold heart

Strawberry deal seems to be over now. They rang up 3 for $3.99 for me. I put them back, but got my .99 pineapple.

I think the coupons were regional to us, so thought I'd post this here...

Robert Mondavi Private Selection wines are on sale this week at SW for $6.99. If you buy 6 you get an extra 10% off thru SW's usual program, making it $6.30 a bottle. There is a MIR on the last page of this week's CVS ad where you get $30 back wyb 12 bottles. There were coupons for $1.50/1 in the 4/10 inserts. There's also a $1.50 bricks printable on Mondavi's website.

6.99 x 12 = 83.88
- 10% bulk discount = 73.80
- 1.50 x 12 = 55.80
- $30 rebate = 25.80 or 2.15 each

I've had the cab and the Chardonnay and they're both pretty good. Much better than a bottle of two buck chuck IMHO. Hope that helps some of you who like wine with dinner.

I would love to have the Kohls coupon. I checked all my nearby stores but they were all out of the SF Chronicle.

Thanks so much
