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

    10391
    10393-both for O froz veg but attach to anything. Have to put something slot for these
    one is 1.25, the other is $1

    I'm running out the door so just going to point everyone to MFA
    she has a post for BOGO Tai-Pei frozen entree, Q expires 4/30/12!
    and NEW link for Target 10gc wyb 50 exp 12-15

    Awww...I was gypped! My SF Examiner didn't have a peelie. Fortunately the San Mateo County Times did. Don't think that I could've purchased $60 worth of stuff anyway. Thanks for the HU!

    Thanks so much for the SCO codes!

    Took 30 minutes to check out of SCO with my ten items. Register just keep freezing and saying "Remove item from bagging area". ATtendant had to scan her magic card about 15 times to get me through, while I waited each time. Very frustrating when it is 5:30pm and you have a hungry 3 year old with you.

    Anyway, wnated to report that the ON code of 30055 worked fine on greek yogurt which was $1.19 so .19.
    The 25569 technically "worked" on the O Organics brown rice bowl ($1.50 - $1 = .50) but then required "approval" from the cashier. Is that normal? I won't use that again if I always need approval. But wondering if this particular register was just wonked out?
