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

    Sorry-posted when sleepy & now kind of rushed
    Quote from theloo View Post :
    Did I miss this? Does this work at Raley's too???

    5/50 was offer on my card, like JFU @ SW

    Quote from amc2007 View Post :
    So, to stay under the radar, I should NOT use the O Organic, as this will cause the register to ask for cashier override?

    when I said cards don't register I was referring to SCO- the scale doesn't recognize them
    if you have to "skip bagging" more than 3 times, need override
    so 3 cards + using a code that does the skip bagging thing means you'll need override
    HTH

    if I missed anything, will reply tonight Smilie


    There's a MM after CAT deal on SW thread about Fiber Choice 10ct
    Looked at Couponnetwork and it's supposed to be at Lucky/savemart, raleys, RA (Catalina only) too
    was near a Lucky today & couldn't find this brand with supplements or laxatives (where Metamucil & other fiber products were).
    RA only had large 13.99 bottles
    Couponnetwork says to "print by 2/15" so I'm thinking this deal won't last much longer
    Wish I would've remembered when I went past a SW this morning Doh

    Any Miracle whip fans, and have you seen a good price?
    Hoping to use $1/1 IPQs before they expire (2/16 for me)
    don't see decent price at Lucky, SW, NH-anywhere else? I avoid WM & haven't been in a Target in awhile.

    btw, I read on SW thread about the Swiss cheese deal, and wanted to ask you the JFU bogo on that is a very much YMMV, right? I only see $4 off/lb or something like that on my JFU for that Emmi Sdajfljlajle fancy cheese. I guess no fancy cheese for me. Frown I really love cheese too... boo...


    I got these. 9.99 for one 8 oz package. Even after the BOGO and $4 (assuming both are coming off?), that makes it $6 for 2? That's still $6/pound, which is OK if you like it. Regular brands that are similar are a buck or two less per pound... not seeing the excitement in this one? Unless next week the price drops!!! Wink

    Got my free shrimps (3) at Panda yesterday. They were really big! I was surprised.

    These comments are so funny...

    Quote from flecko View Post :
    Thank you for the shrimp. My wife enjoyed her dinner


    Quote from twincitymissy View Post :
    Tasted good and for $FREE I couldn't really beat the price. I used to get rice with it, but I no longer feel obligated to purchase an item since I get something free. I got my free shrimp, said thanks and kept it moving.

    Hey guys, I've been lurking since I couldn't remember my password. Anyway, I haven't seen it mentioned, but I wanted to give a heads up for a free magazine called in good taste at the checkstands at Savemart (it has Lucky on the cover too, so I'll assume it's there). Inside, they only have 2 MQs exp. 4/30. One is for $2 off any Earthbound Farm salad or frozen veggie and the other is a BO 5 oz Earthbound Farm salad GO 10 oz frozen veggie free.

    found a P&G rebate available at limited stores but for once includes some local ones
    check for your areahere [pgsupportahero.com]
    "purchase $35 in P&G products in one transaction, get a $10 prepaid visa"
    only ones for me were Lunardi's & Gene's foods, both pretty $$

    was looking for an upcoming P&G MIR form mentioned in CVS thread. There was a link but it took me to old one, which I printed w/o examining dates Doh Don't do that
    Apparently the new MIR will show up there when released

    Quote from amc2007 View Post :
    thank you!! Do you use them, and do they cause the cashier to intervene when used at SCO?
    None of the ones I've used require intervention. Most ring up as a grocery item and allow you to skip bagging, others you may have to insert or wave something in the coupon slot.

    anyone spent them?
    I'm a little freaked out by report in SW thread that they're beepers in reg checkstand

    ETA: it's A.M., tried 4 CAT and sailed thru Whee
    no Fiber Choice so I didn't roll it, got 3 Kashi meals 4.20 after JFU & in-ad 30% off -4CAT
    happy, happy

    I wanted to buy some frozen in the A.M.on the way home,but early checkers are such, well, tight@$$es around here that' I'm reluctant to try
    Found tons at store near train stn this morning, checker tried to tell me I was "doubling" hallmark by using FB Q & $5 CAT to payRoll Eyes (Sarcastic)
    fortunately, the angry line of men with bouquets behind me made her decide to take them
    but I only did 2 trans
    and tomorrow I have no angry mob to influence her & I"m sure beepage will cause her to deny it. Pretty sure she's M-F so I can't avoid her
    Found some at closer store too but don't want to do a bunch of trans with one checker

    how glad I am for SCO in the afternoons

    Nice, thank you! I got $3/$30 on one j4u account and $5 off $50 on my other j4u. This will help me reach $30. I"m not sure I can ever get to $50 any more.

    Some SW CAT notices I got today:
    Morningstar farms between 1/28/2013 - 2/24/2013
    Buy 3, get $2.00
    Buy 4, get $3.00
    Buy 5, get $5.00

    Delmonte Canned tomatoes 14.5oz or larger between 1/28/2013 - 2/24/2013
    Buy 3, get $1.00
    Buy 4, get $1.25
    Buy 6, get $2.00

    V8 100% vegetable or Fusion juice, 46oz or larger bottles, 5.5oz six parcks or 11.5oz six packs between 1/28/2013 - 2/24/2013
    Buy 2, get $1.50
    Buy 3, get $2.00
    Buy 4, get $3.00
    AMC bumping this up.
    I'm going to get 4 morningstars from SW this week. - $4 peelies (1x4 - found at Raleys) - $3 cat - around $1.24 each.
    Good price and will use my $4 cat from Fiberchoice!
