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

    Thanks jwsd for the hallmark Q!

    Lucky's has the Brown Cow yogurts on sale for .79 each - .35/1 Dairy Q = .44 each. Not quite as cheap as whole foods.

    Since we don't have doublers, I don't know what the .25 a piece talk is about.

    I think you might mean this deal? The New Campbell's to go (the ones in the stand up package, not a can) are on j4u price of $1.99. There are $1/1 MQ's (One of them is a load to card eq, but I guess there are paper ones available too). Then there is supposed to be a $1.00 CAT wyb one. I haven't verified that norcal has the $1 CAT, but if you include that in your math, then its:

    $1.99
    -$1 MQ
    = .99
    Get $1 CAT = Free
    roll.

    The way I understood it, they come out to be .25 if you buy 2 in the land of doubles and use the $.50/1 insert Qs. ($1.99*2= $3.98 - .50 doubled - .50 doubled=$1.98, get back $1.50 cat, so $.48 for 2)
    I don't have the $1/1 eQ loaded -- wish I did! I think there are only .50/1 Qs to be had now, but if someone learns of a $1/1 Q, please let me know! I've been trying to avoid canned things to avoid BPA, so I really like that these soups come in a bag instead.

    happy Friday! wave

    Yes, the same inserts. The chronicle usually does have a few more coupons per insert, but well worth a subscription & is so much better then the Press for q's Smilie

    ON coupon expires 3/31/13.
    Weird 1.70 ON - 30% can come upto 0.80, jfu plays funny again?
    30% comes off shelf price
    last time I bought it it was .86 b4 "30055" (ty for expiration)
    so if shelf price in that store was 2.79
    2.79 x .7 = 1.95
    2.79 -1.70 for JFU price =1.09
    1.95-1.09=.86

    Haven't tried this round, but usually the same system makes for .39/ea bakery french bread
    .99 JFU price
    1.99 shelf x .7 =1.39 -$1JFU =.39

    .99JFU price has not applied to the ON bakery loaves last 2 times I tried it.

    rolls fine-
    maybe buy soup (below), use CAT to pay for floss, use floss CAT to buy cards and you should spend about $4 cash, have a $5 CAT to roll
    I've rolled floss into HM, then bought some groceries with floss.

    now this is just annoying
    I could see replies all day when I checked the already open printables tab but could not open another tab in IE to read them. kept getting spinning wheel
    finally opened chrome, where I wasn't signed into SD and wasn't able to for hours

    finally got into IE and this whole page didn't show up. Didn't see Sactogirl had already given link for soup
    and when I tried to edit in IE, back to spinning wheel

    so back in Chrome I was finally able to sign in. Arrrgh! Did it all to apologise for redundant info...

    Thanks for the go soups links! I could only get the campbells kitchen one to work. the Facebook Q wouldn't print for me, and the bricks link said I'd already printed it? Two is better than none! :-)

    SW in Rohnert Park would not let me use the $2 off 3 hallmark q because it "was a photocopy". That store always gives me trouble.
