Thread Details

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

**********************************************************************
official place to post Norcal store deals
Savemart/Lucky/Raley's/Bel Air/Nob Hill and other local chains welcome

We're not too rigid, any deals of NORCAL interest welcome

Been recommended that I tell people to play nice, just post deals and no fighting

Question - I have a personalized JFU price for Huggies wipes for 99 cents. It says one-time, but there's no limit on it. I also have a $1 off coupon, limit 2. Can I buy 2 and get them free, or just 1? Thanks. Been a while since I have been at Safeway. I don't have any babies anymore, but wipes are always useful!

*note - make certain you print or .pdf save your offers before shopping. if both offers are not honored, go to cs for your $ back

Sprouts:
so the 5/30 doesn't work with SQs, but you don't find out til the very end
total on screen was $12.xx, turned to swipe my card b4 I realized that the 2 had turned to a 7

Saw a guy with clipboard when I walked in & asked how the store coupons worked with the 5/30. He said he'd never encoutered that & would "make it work". I recognized him as AM or something-the guy they call for overrides, etc.
He was checking when I was ready so I got in his line
My total before coupons was over $32, and I had $3 in Sprouts coupons
A lot of my IPs beeped & he was getting concerned
after I paid $17 (with GC),wanted to give me back the 5/30 but it expires today & I would've at least tried adding $1 more to see if it was discounts after all SQs
$32-3SQ =$29. The rest of my discounts were MQs
altho, now that i think back, he struggled to enter some MQs and i think I saw one entered as SQ.
One added $1 and he had to take it off twice...
So who knows...
eventually gave me $5 cash

Also, MFA listed Wholly Guac/Salsa as 1.50ea
I had $1/1 Qs but it was marked .99ea
IPs didn't scan and he gave me $1 off. Still not clear on how they normally handle Qs over the amt of purchase.

thanks for the Sprouts report MissusG! Smilie I never buy enough to hit $30 there, but I like Sprouts much more than SW for the shopping experience.


At SW, how does it work when MQ value ($1, for example) exceeds item cost (99c)? What's the policy and does anyone have a link to this specific policy? TIA! Thanks

Manufacturer and Store Coupons:
1. We will redeem coupons only for the specific items included in our customer's purchase transaction. The redemption value will be as stated on the coupon, unless that value yields a final price for such item less than zero; if application of the redemption value yields a price less than zero, the coupon will be redeemed only for the amount that yields a zero price (our customer cannot net a cash credit or payout from a coupon purchase).

Is anyone finding THIS at their Targets? Calvine store had one on shelf, but rang up $199. Really wanted it for my daughters room Frown

The pizza thing is still $29.99 there also (which is a good thing as I don't really have the need/room for it) laugh out loud

Found a few things 90% off for V-day, but it sure was picked over.

Target:
made it!
not much of a trans
5 cereal, 2 steamfresh and gave away ketchup Q (2.69 here)
steamfresh $1 items included plain brown rice, white rice & brown rice with veg. Liked that better than froz peas or corn
was way on the bottom, in this store the shelf tags had curled around in a circle

I didn't see any Wolf chili-is that something we have in CA?
wanted to price Yoplait Greek 100 with TQ/MQ (heart the lemon flavor) but didn't find it
or v-day clearance
Target was in Oakridge Mall, so it may have less space & not stock everything others do.

Is anyone still shopping at Raley's?!? I have not been only because I am not getting any offers and their weekly ad is not that great Frown They have mentioned on their FB page that if you don't shop, you won't get offers, but my thinking is more along the lines of... give me offers and I will shop laugh out loud

Being as I am about one mile from Winco and about 3 miles from Safeway (while at work) I just don't have a need to go to Raley's anymore. Kind of a bummer too as I was in there 2-3 times a week when they had their e-coupons. Man, I miss those Sadwalk

Their pharm is the best around so I'm still in there occasionally & try to find something to buy.
but the quality seems to be waning too
gut feeling is they don't really want coupon-ers.

I had a 5/50 that I used on the last day, used my free Good/nat'l Qs, got some beef & pork to get 250 points & used $1 pork Qs-in other words, crafted the best deal I could & still paid about $25.
The stew I made wasn't as good as I remember. Meat was tougher. Pork was OK but I seasoned heavily.
I got organic onions, marked 2.79/3lb bag was cheaper than conventional. Were on a rack next to organics & half of them got wet from sprayer. Wet onions Nono
then they scanned 2.99

Little things, but enough to make me think Sprouts is as good if not better when it comes to meat & organic produce. Throw in free animal crackers, wholly salsa & I think they're my new "main" store

ETA: after I did 5/50 thought I might get some more offers, not so far..

Okay so it's not just me laugh out loud Speaking of Sprouts.... the two times I have been able to get the ads from work, the Sprouts ad has a $3/$30. Is this a weekly thing they do with their ads? Have not made it to Sprouts yet, but you gals are always posting deals for there that I am thinking I should check them out nod
