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

Where are Nor Cal'ers purchasing eggs for Easter? I need two dozen and don't think I'll have time for a costco trip, so thought I'd check to see if there were any other sales? I didn't get a SW ad or a Lucky's ad in my mailbox this week. TIA!
I got mine at Walgreens 2 dozen for $2.

found my Keebler Flipsides, included in SW & Lucky sales. Not @ Raleys according to online ad.
1.69 @ Lucky - $1/2 IP
1.99 @ SW. I had 2 x $1/2JFU Qs & hoped that both would come off with purchase of 2 but no.

Lucky had me ready to walk out. Shopped early, when only SCO was open. Had Qs for everything but after I scanned the in ad freebie Qs, the scanner light went red and attendant had to manually enter all my qs. she gave me the line about one Q per purchase = one per transaction. Luckily, keebler Q also says 4 like Qs per trans.
still called mgr...grr..not a happy morning person & going thru Q 3rd degree didn't help.

JennieO turkey bacon is 2.49 thru late April (not in ad). There's a $1/1 IP
also $1/1 for chub sausage, which is $2.99. Dated 4/13 so I think I'll check next week & see if marked down Wink
bought Triscuit brown rice 1.99 -1IP. Not seeing these @ SW. Bought them last week @ raleys when I had bogo Q & 3/30. Really like red bean/roasted pepper variety, brown rice makes them light & crispy.

rattling on...must mean it's time for my nap ZzZZz..nighty...

Hi peeps!

There's all sorts of trading going on for the $10 off $25 JCPenney coupon that expires 3/31. I got a card in the mail for mine, and would prefer for it to go to someone local. So, just send me a pm if you're interested in the code to use online (the $25 minimum needs to be met prior to taxes & shipping). I'll update my post when it's been claimed. Smilie

ETA: Just in case I wasn't clear...offering as a RAOK

Didn't get Overage with the coffeemate BOGO at Target. The coupon scanned at 3.99 but cashier caught it and adjusted down to $1.50 :-(

Other items I thought I'd share, but nothing crazy exciting:
Eggs = .99 a carton

Playtex sexy wipes 24ct $6.29 - $5/1 printable MQ (tossing in my gym bag for days I don’t need a full shower after work out but could use a general freshen up, nothing sexy there!) (Boxes had 20ct, but soft packaging had 24ct)

Bona hard wood floor cleaner $5.49 - $3 printable MQ (from their website) - .50/1 TQ and BONUS Free Clorox 32ct wipes wyb Bona (this did not come off automatically but cashier adjusted when I told her about the tab on the shelf) =$1.99 for both

Annie’s Chocolate granola bars 7ct $2.99 - $.75 MQ printable from their website - $1 ibotta offer = .1.24
Up and Up Dish soap $1.97 each - $2/2 TQ (NLA) = $1.97 for two

Quaker Chewy granola bars (got boxes with 2 extra so 10ct) $2.19 x2 - $1/2 TQ and (2) .50/1 peelies on box for any Quaker bars = $2.38 or $1.19 a box

Kleenex 8ct purse packs = $2.29 - $2/1 Target Texted Q (cashier had to scan my phone) = .29

My experience was even worse. I was buying the 2/$6. The middle aged cashier checked with his supervisor and absolutely refused to allow me to use the coupon - even to adjust it down. "It is more than the product costs. Here you might as well take this back (he handed me the coupon)." He said it angrily.

He apologized to the person behind me for the wait and asked me how I was going to pay for my items. No apology to me, and cut me off when I mentioned it was expiring today and it was a good coupon. I had 5 items and only one coupon. I would have gone to CS, but I was exhausted after a very long day of Easter errands.

This is the third time in a few weeks that I have been treated poorly at Target after a long, long run of pleasant experiences. It was not my regular Target or I am sure I wouldn't have had a problem. I am very careful with my coupons and well liked. I make small purchases and do not push the limits.

Anyone else having bad experiences at Target again?

For those who don't follow CVS closely the coupon center should be spitting out a coupon for free Clear hair care products. Ibotta has a $1.25 when you buy one. you might be able to combine both for a money maker. I am going to try ti today and will let you know if it works.

Anyone get the pp at safeway on the spices sounds like people who got it are getting some of the fancy spices really cheap

well, heck, I would've offered my SW card if I knew it was spice price was a unicorn.
I didn't get PP on gourmet, just the red cap, but have had plenty of requests to use it. It's going to seattle for the next two days, TX if it doesn't work there and may come home via Oregon..

CVS:
the free Clear CRT worked after x/xx was scanned woot
-between POise, Clear, Brookside & Pantene bogos, my trans was $30BC, .59AC (no ECBs)
Revlon 3CRT beeped with x/xx, but I read that it works with beauty 4/12

WAGsSpider (I'm still caught in their web)
.99RR wyb .99 7up "10"
-I found .75/1 mq x 4/15 that I'm 99% sure came from SW glossy midweek flyer, had SQs across the bottom.

RA: I bought some seeds as fillers, and they rang up less than I expected.
the pkg pre-priced 1.59 and 1.79 rang up .76 and .86
I think reg. price is 40% off pkg price, and gold is 80% of that. Nice price for decent quality seed.

I spent the week thinking today was 30th, and had to jam at 2am to get Easter stuff ready to travel as well as my Qs ready for Danville stores. At least they have lots of stock up there.

Hope the Fools of April Evillaugh are tired after Easter & take tomorrow offSly

No spice PP on either of my j4u. Are the prices on the spices still good even without pp? I am out of thyme and cumin so a good price will work even if not free....

A slightly OT response... I really recommend getting your spices in bulk. You wouldn't believe how much cheaper they are! Really! The best place we've found is Berkeley Bowl. I have no idea where you live, but I would say it would even be worth a trip once a year to stock up. We fill up little baggies, and rarely spend more than $1/baggie for any spice, even ones that are usually expensive. Occasionally, something like saffron or an equivalent very expensive spice will come to ~ $2. (If you make a special trip, don't forget to check out the produce -- we've been getting boxes of organic blueberries there for $1.39 for the past several weeks. Smilie ) Just a thought... sorry for the OT. wave

We trekked to Berkeley Bowl on Saturday and were really thrilled by the blueberry prices too. Picked up 4 cartons so that we could go on a smoothie bonanza. bounce Nice tip on the spices, will have to keep that in mind. I did see a gal in line who was buying the McCormick spices though and was like EEK!

I did notice that the SF Chronicle newspaper guy who was sitting outside Berkeley Bowl was offering a full year of the Sunday paper for $20. I don't know if that was an introductory price, but it was a much better deal than anything that I've seen in awhile from SF Chronicle

I have never heard of this berkely bowl place...berries and spices at good prices? Might be worth the trek for me, but it would be a trek! Thanks for the tip!

I do usually buy all of my spices in bulk at Whole Foods. It's crazy way cheaper but if the spices at Safeway are available with $4 off, I'm sure they'd end up being pennies?
