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

    bummer that Raleys freebie is Fun da Middles
    not too motivated now
    plan to get the movie ticket-will post qualifying items below.
    Did some math on the P&G deal, favoring items that will qualify for 10/50MIR but no overall MM so far
    Pantene is 3.50ea and I doubt bogo Qs would auto. Olay is 20% off, there's a $3/2 Q that would work on cleansers but no Qs afaik for cheaper items like bar soap

    REport on SW thead-CAT announcement $2CAT wyb one MSF. There is a $1/1 Q @ coupons.com

    Kelloggs/movie ticket, 2.99ea:
    ♥ KELLOGG'S CORN FLAKES - 18 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S RAISIN BRAN - 20 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGGS FROSTED FLAKES CEREAL - 14 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGGS RICE KRISPIES CEREAL - 12 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S CORN POPS - 12.5 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S APPLE JACKS - 12.2 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S COCOA KRISPIES - 16.5 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S SMACKS CEREAL - 15.3 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S CRUNCHY NUT ROASTED NUT AND HONEY O'S - 10.8 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGG'S CRUNCHY NUT GOLDEN HONEY NUT FLAKES - 14.1 OZ
    ♥ KELLOGGS RAISIN BRAN CINNAMON ALMOND - 14.5 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGGS KRAVE CHOCOLATE CEREAL - 11.4 OZ

    ♥ KELLOGGS KRAVE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CEREAL - 11 OZ

    Krave would be cheapest way to go- there's a .70/1 MQ

    Looks like their freebies are just things that are being discontinued and it is Raley's way of getting rid of them laugh out loud I saw some of those fundamiddles on clearance or .79 at my Raley's. Frown Was hoping for something better this week. Oh well, will hit up SM or SF this week instead nod

    Yeah I thought they would have something good for Cinco de Mayo. On the buy 2 avocados get free guac mix, the avocados are $1.25 each, not the greatest price.

    Check your Valpak mailer. I had 3 Grocery Outlet coupons: Free case of water with $30 purchase, $4 off $40 and $5 off $50 - exp 6/30.
    I didn't have these. Frown If anyone has extras, I'd love to trade. With the newborn twins, I'm finding I don't have much time for couponing, so going to Grocery Outlet is just easier. nod

    I didn't get them either so each Grocery Outlet must be targeting specific areas.
