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

    Got JFU personal price for Safeway navel Orange $2.99/8 lb, a good stock up price.

    8lb bag excludes Organic [safeway.com]
    Personalized Price

    $2.99
    Our Regular Price
    $5.99
    Totally not trying to thread crap, but I have been really disappointed in the Organic produce at my Safeway. Have gotten a large bag of Organic fuji apples that were tasteless, and the Organic Garlic bulb that looked good turned out to be rotten on the inside, and the Organic bag of onions lasted about a week before turning black! Maybe my produce manager is out to lunch?

    thanks for sharing, how does the Wrapp offer work? I tried to download the app, or was in on Facebook, install the app, I can send it from my 'other' email to my own email as if a friend sent me the offer, right? Sorry, I couldn't figure out the Wrapp thing at all. Thanks!
    I use it as an app on my phone. You can't send to yourself. My fiance and I send them back and forth. But there may be a way to send it to emails

    Yes, for the most part, I agree! SW is my most convenient grocery store, and I want to buy mostly organic produce, but I have found that those two are just not a good match. The apples especially are almost always yucky -- either mushy, very bruised, or just not sweet. The only organic things I have consistently never had a problem with are potatoes, celery, peppers, herbs, and bananas. One good thing I will say is that when they have organic produce on sale, it is often quite a good price (like bags of baby potatoes were recently $2.49).

    On a completely separate note, I am so so sad that I missed the 30% double dip on Amy's frozen foods last week. That's what I get for not testing it myself. Crying

    Can anyone confirm whether SW's FF $10/30 $5/20 is truly a oyno cat or deducting from current transaction in NorCal? I'm trying to plan my $10/75 for tomorrow and would hate to loose it if FF isn't a cat and I have a hard enough time getting to $75 that I'd really have to pad my list to get to $85. TIA.

    Hi Everyone - Went to Sprouts yesterday and got a small cartful of items for around $50. Lots of veggies and fruit.

    Okay one of the best deals I got last night was Hint Water (several flavors - pear, watermelon, mango, pom/passionfruit, cucumber, blackberrie) They are part of the BOGO, but Sprouts also has a store coupon that is $10/10. So it ended up to be around 35c each plus crv.
    The Store q took off -$4.90 and each drink was $1.69 originally.

    Store q here [sprouts.com]:

    (Coupon expired on 2/28- but still on the website - ymmv.)
    Can print only once - it disappears after printing
    incog browser fixes this.
