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

Does anyone know the price for the Pompeian Olive Oil that is of sale (BOGO)?

I don't remember the exact amount but it's under $4.99 something like $4.79. There's a $1/1 printable available at their website [smartsource.com]. If you use SCO you should be able to get 2 for $2.xx. Wink I was going to go thru SCO and the cashier pulled me over to her line. Mad I had a $3 off 4 coke coupon that I using with the 4 12 pack for $11 special. I got this coupon in a trade and it was obviously a newspaper insert coupon. She didn't even try to scan the coupon, she just ran off and started asking people if she could take it. Confused Somebody okayed it and of course it scanned without a problem because it was from an insert.


You know the song Shut up and Drive... I feel like singing SHUT UP AND SCAN!

I wanted to share a nice little CVS deal that y'all may find in your stores. GUM Perioshield has been on 50% clearance in my two CVS stores forever at $5.24. There's a $5 MQ printable (easy to find through Google) and a $3 on Saving Star.

Also had the best shopping trip in months this morning, even with kids in tow. The Head & Shoulders BOGO coupon did the $9.49 auto-deduct and the cashier let it ride, the Nivea .99 tins produced $2 ECBs as reported, and I found a peelie for $25 rebate on three PF products. bounce (The local stores are totally picked over re: peelies on the PF makeup.)

I was afraid to try H&S, glad it worked
even tho stuggled to get to $30 to use cosmetics 3/10 and a 4/20

I got my free Cortaid on both my cards, but no stock.

quarterly ECBs printed today, only .50 on both my cards-one witih no other ECBs, nivea's a cheap way to go-buy onr,get 2 ecb
use 2ecb to buy 2 more tins, get 4ecb

Hershey's Simple pleasures $1/1 CRT from last week, some don't mention a size and worked on the .67 trial size

************

my Nob HIll had Kraft 2% cheddar bricks clearance .99ea. $1/2 Qs from booklet found @ SW exp 9/30

I have free SW Kitchens buttertop bread on 2 cards, not going to use them much. willing to share phone # of card with a regular here

if you have .99 buttertop JFU price and 50% off SW kitchens or ON bread, should ring up free for you too. 50% is only once per day, and apparently comes off of reg. price

you can use the produce 3/15 too if you want -my garden is coming in and I'm up to my ankles in apricots, falling faster than I can pick. I'll be home with my dehydrator today Big Grin

Grocery Outlet today:
32oz frozen Organic broccoli = $2.99

96ozOrganic Edamame (unshelled) = $7.99 (12, 8oz bags zipped into one giant bag)

SW - am I the last to know that Safeway has its own app for the iPhone? I downloaded it but haven't used yet. My store keeps requiring that I print out my entire J4U list when stuff doesn't come off my receipt and I"m sick of printing 4-6 pages. Will this app display our j4U prices?

Haven't tried the app; I just open the j4U personalized deals page in a browser window on my phone and show them the prices. Haven't lost an argument yet.

I haven't tried the J4U app, but my SW has a laptop and printer at CS. I am able to login and print my pages from there. Maybe your store has the same setup and you could use their ink/paper if the app doesn't show what you need.

I found more PF than concealer cheap
.89 eye definer felt tip eye marker 0 44386 02298 0
1.89 baked collection eyeshadow 0 44386 03829 5
--- baked oatmeal only-there was a pkg very similar more expensive
.89 Matte collection quad eyeshadow
-- more than one, I have Canyon Classics 3882

I used $1/1 MQs on items under $1 beepless, as long as total Qs was less than total PF purchase (ala WAGs)

I also found $2/1 Mascara peelies in my stash
3.49 after sale
2 with 3/10 Cosmetics made it free (if you have $3 PF & Qs or add 3.29 Nexxus-3crt )


Thanks for all the PF info. Besides it being $7 off, is there anything else to it? I don't have any PF peelies (or if I do I can't find them), but $2 or less is a great deal since my mom use the concealer! Thanks!

CVS Q: I got 25% off my next purchase CRT, can I combine that with a X off Y coupon? Like if I have an item that's regular price, and it's also within the say $20 total for me to use a $4 off, would both coupons work? Thanks guys, I've only used a % coupon once or twice in all the time I've shopped at CVS, usually I used X off Y coupons.

there are $1/1 insert Qs-I ordered them. didn't see in our papers
if you can find 3 of the $25 off peelies, I think that deal is a MM
they were $15ish ea, so about $8 tis week, $24 toward gas card & $25MIR

I tried to but next transaction, clerk told me my 30% was still on my card
so I don't know if my 5/20 cancelled it out or the clerk forgot to apply it

I have learned that the % coupons don't play well with
-$5 beauty CRT
-$1 bag tag CRT
b/c these are are store discounts. I think that if you use a 1bag tag cRT and % off Q, the bag tag CRT will come off and add back on if your % discount is over $1

So I would imagine that a X/XX is a store discount too.

CVS discussion board made me Mad today-I saw a post yesterday asking for ideas on using the 4/20 skincare CRT and \wanted to see if it got replies. I spent over an hr wading thru name calling posts. That was all my computer time druing the day, absolutely wasted.
BTW-best I've seen so far on skincare is Garnier 5/15 next week. Gel moisturizer is $7 and there are $2mqs. Add a shampoo ($1AC) to get over $15. Now need $6 more facial skincare. Maybe clearance, maybe find enough freebies to use a 4/20=sounding like should let it expire laugh out loud

Savemart ad:
starts Thurs
freebies are
-Top care sunblock wyb $25
-Tyson fully cooked meals wyb $25

nothing extraordinary in the ad
EB Farms salads bogo
3/$1 mangos
3.97 wtrmelon
.99/lb various peppers & tomatillos
several ConAgra items 10/$10 (pudding, ketc\hup, GG pasta, Rosarita beans, tomatoes..)
according to HCW db, share a recipe and get link for tomato couponhere [hunts.com]

I haven't been able to get my phone to do that. AT&T connection sucks in my area.

My store used to have a laptop set up but no printer. Now they've removed the laptop entirely. Such an unfriendly store all the way around.

Iagree They have some rude posters there Insane I blocked a couple of them. Mad CVS is hard to follow as it because you have to keep of with several threads. Juggle It makes you scared Hide to post. That's why I like this friendly thread.Gathering Homesweet

As a side note, I used to buy those organic broccolis (they even have green beans) but I stopped buying them when I saw they were coming from China.
Perhaps it won't bother some, but I just wanted to add that little detail.

Have a great day!
