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 just got an email from Raley's "Try it" program to try Raley's premium coffee for free. They are sending it via mail. Act fast if you got the email, because it said the program has limited spots.

    On that Target 10/50, do TQs count against the threshold?
    do I have to spend $50 after TQs and before MQs, or $50 BC?

    I asked in CVS deal thread, no reply yet
    CS is supposed to send a 10ECB to my card to make up for 12ecb that didn't print (!! said 10 is max they could issue). Supposed to print whenI buy something. Bought something tonight, no 10ecb. did get a 10/50....does it take 24 or 48 or 129 hours for them to show up?
    and since they're supposedly giving me 10ecb to make up for 3 different promos, I also assume this doesn't attach to any promos? Is it comparable to a manual print?
    what a PITA..

    no Sprouts email ...
    and can't sign up for Raley's Try it program since I can't access the stinkin' site!!

    I have 2 more link for Kelloggs 1.50 Qs but maxxed out printing on 2 computers. PLMK if anyone who has printed their limit finds it's re-set & is able to print more

    Does this come email or snail mail??? TIA
    I don't know. I finally completed the information online and they said "Your registration for a free movie certificate is complete. Once your information has been validated, you will receive an email within 3 business days with more information about this offer." I got two, but I'm waiting to see if the 2nd movie ticket needs a different address if it does come by snail mail.

    CVS told me it would take 48 hours for my 20% to be loaded. I called yesterday, I am hoping it will be loaded tomorrow.

    I believe the Kellogg's can be printer every quarter so hopefully it will reset January.

    ty for replies

    T report:
    there's a $2/1 Miracle whip Q in printables thread (not wiki afaik), had to sign up & used GA zip code, & Q says "redeem at Publx" but is MQ & scanned fine
    2.99 for the easy-out 22 oz
    used 2 x $2/1 and $1/2 TQ

    Int'l delight was reported (MFA) .04 afrer $1/1 IPs and 1.50/2 TQ
    but was priced 1.61, 3.32/2 - 3.50 in Qs. Expected one to adjust down but got O

    there was a smart/final next door, got 2 baking soda @ .99ea but I notice in the ad it says there's only 4,000+ available. Wonder if there's any left or if will stop printing when all used
    -and according to theterms and conditions [activaterewards.com], it seems to be only for the movie Parental Guidance.


    My CVS Kelloggs/M&Ms experiment was a bust: Sadwalk

    so a little OT, have you guys participated in the JCP button holiday contest? I have gotten maybe 10 buttons, they allow you to get a few when you go in to the store. So far, I've gotten 5 x $10 store q along w/ one $5. Store Q reduces price of the item, so you pay tax after the cert, not before.

    So if you have a store around I would suggest getting some buttons, never know what you may get. Contest is until 12/24 (?)

    most have a bucket by cashier to pick directly from Wink

    I just saw on MFA that starting today SW has a new ad with another $2 off Mc Cormick spices and they are still B2G1F.

    You can load it on JFU too.

    Does anyone know of a local deal on photo printing? I want to send out a picture with my holiday cards & it's probably too late to order online. I used to use Ritz Camera, which charged 5c per print. Anything close? CVS/Target/etc. are more like 15c unless there's a sale. I only need about 50.

    Not too useful unless you have a Costco membership, but I bought a package of 3 5x7 frames and inside the package is a coupon for free 100 prints at Costco. You can see the coupon taped right inside the cellophane packaging.

    My last time using Target to order prints made me never go back there. The quality was sooo poor.

    savemart freebies:
    spinach bag 9oz w/$15 purchase
    top care pain relief 50ct with $25 purchase

    3 day sale f/sa/su includes Nabisco crax 1.49ea

    Got my S&F movie confirmation. Didn't go thru the link yet as we decided not to see the movie. Anyone who has done it-can I just fwd the link or do I have to personally do something?
    have offered it to the nice SDer who sends me cvs 4/20s
    if she doesn't take it I'll offer here

    follow up on CVS-my 10ecb printed from red machine on Sunday

    I got a 10ecb for the Orgreenic pan set
    could've sworn I saw an ECB deal on it, but don't see in this or upcoming ad
    anyone else see it?
    maybe it was even RA...
    I have the frying pan & it's OK. Chipping around the edges but not conking surface & can use on my temperamental smooth top range so considering burning some ECBs on the set.

    Finally able to access Raleys' site via hubs phone, and no offers Annoyed
    wonder if it's "use it or loose it" set up
