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 have tried a few times to read the T thread but it has not been helpful. Too many times, the deals have not panned out in our area. Who knows why. the totallytarget blog is very easy to read though!

    just want to say thanks for the Kashi dd info MissusG. sorry cant rep you again for now. I know this might be old news to everyone here, but i found dd can only work 1x per card due to paper SQ only working once per card so can only dd on either frozen or cereal/bars deal per card but not both. is this right? thats been my experience, i stopped using ad Q since eQs came along so not sure / dont remember how ad Qs act and was surprised that ad Q only works 1x per card.

    Sprouts looks pretty good this week
    I got 5/30 last week and plan to use it tomorrow on dbl ad day
    MFA had done nice job on match ups
    but she didn't mention
    American Flatbread pizza 5.99
    $4/1IP mentioned in this post

    and my ad has .49/lb cantaloupe

    Quote from amc2007 View Post :
    Oh, two more SW Notes:

    From Missusg on the SW thread -- (unless peelies also attach to any Kashi -my head hurts now)

    My $1/1 kashi soft and chewy printed MQ would not scan, so cashier took out one of my $1 peelies from the frozen foods that I had already scanned and put into the slot. It scanned and I did not buy frozen in that purchase. (My printed at home MQ's never scan. Need a new printer I think).

    Also, I did one run through SCO with just 6 Kashi items that had 6 peelies on them. I used the 6 peelies, and the 30% off SW. All scanned fine, went great, and then when I was all done with the transaction and getting ready to pay, the screen flashed "approval needed for coupons'. All coupons had already gone through. Is there a max of 6 MQ's in Sco or something??
    Quote from Lisa123 View Post :
    I get that a lot. Just from my anecdotal experience, I'm pretty sure it's not about the number of Qs used, but the percentage you save -- i.e. you could use 10 Qs that only gave you 20% off your total order without an override, but 2 Qs that give you 80% off would require an override. At least that's what seems to be true for me.
    ty for answering Lisa
    My interpretation too
    altho if I keep the trans. very small I can get down to just a few cents AC & not need approval. I think its around $4BC.
    Yesterday I did a $30+ trans. in SCO, used MQs & $20CATs to pay, oop .89
    Clerk overrode CATs from her terminal & there was no approval needed at the endConfused

    unless you can run to the store right now, it's moot
    but it was once per card EACH frozen & cereal (since they were separate eQs)
    each eQ had max 6 items
    the adQ didn't state a limit so maybe you could've bought 6 frozen & 6 non-frozen in one transaction. I didn't risk finding out

    I did frozen on all my cards and today spotted the Blackberry cereal for the 1st time, used a card I hadn't done cereal on yet & got 60% off.

    ty for testing 30% -even on a SW brand it tdidn't workEEK!?
    bakery french bread rang up .51 for me
    I know I said no more bread, but my toatl was shy of $4 & I wanted to pay with CAT. Rack of bread next to SCO was cheapest option
    Time to bust out the bread machine-I have caraway seed Smilie
    so much free breadfor so long, my yeast is probably all kaput laugh out loud

    I checked the sale tags on Mr. Clean cloths & other .29 wyb 3 items
    and it's thru 2/24 woot

    I might finally make a trip to Target after all the deals mentioned.
    finally use 1.25 PB Cinn. toast cereal IPs
    Just printed the Heinz/Ore-ida q and it still says "OR".
    I thought heinz catsup was the no HFCs brand.
    Think it's actually Hunts.

    I did frozen on all my cards and today spotted the Blackberry cereal for the 1st time, used a card I hadn't done cereal on yet & got 60% off.
    I only bought frozen when there were peelies and not much room in freezer due to the pizzas, so mostly did cereal on several cards, but never did 6+6 of each (at the same time). But this is my experience: For each card, if I used the ad Q with EITHER the frozen/cereal eQ (i.e. not mix and match), the dd will come off, but if I went back and got the other 6 items (either the frozen/cereal, whichever I didn't use already) and again try to use the ad Q, the dd will not work anymore, so I was actually asking if anyone knows for sure whether the AD Q only works once per card, like the computers track that a card has scanned the barcode on the Ad Q once already so that it won't work again on that card.

    I think that's how it worked back before you could L2C, ad Qs only worked 1x per card, no? I'm not sure now, it's been so long. I never used Ad Qs after L2C started. Thanks MissusG!

    Valentine's stuff 90% at Target in Rohnert Park. In the back, just half a wall of things. Mostly valentine's cards, so got DD's for next year. Didn't have time to thoroughly search the store though.

    Other sales I noticed:
    30% off a lot of shrinkwrapped "bonus size" packages of things like Tide pods and Dove bodywash. This was also in the back of the store
    30% off boxes of Larabars = $5.60 (down from $8)
    30% off boxes of Pure Protein mini bars
