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

Lot's of great deals for safeway in an ad that was in the sac bee.

Edit: It looks like they took it down. The items that stuck out to me are Tri Tip Boneless $3.77 a pound, dozen eggs $.99 limit 2, and $.99 10 lb bag potatoes limit 2. Choose grocery delivery online to see if prices work for your store. They show up for 95835.

For SJ folks preparing their CVS scenarios, the 3M Command Hook deal looks unavailable. At the third store tonight, they didn't find it anywhere on their computer.

I went to SW last night, and purchased 2 men's dove got $2 cat (mm) worked - as described in SW Thread and TFF. But the purchasing 2 McCormick's Gourmet Spices did not get a cat.
(reading the SW thread, seems like you need 13.5oz or more for the Gourmet cat- I didn't notice my bottle sizes, I will review tonight)
Same here for me for Gourmet spices. I wonder if again this cat is not regional.
Anyway it was still a good deal without the cat, wonder if I should contact the catalina company or not.
Please let me know SC if you hear anything, I read the SW thread too but didn't see anything about the 13.5oz or perhaps I didn't pay attention Confused

I don't think they price match per se, but there is a lowest price guarantee for turkey in their ad

TY for testing & reporting Dove Men CAT

Saw reports about McCormick vanilla free. I have bottles from last year & checked ingredient Corn syrupDown, so I'm less enthralled by that deal.
Has anyone used the 25/50 CAT from GC deal in SCO? Does it work?
Or in checkstand, have you been able to use it when the ttl shows under $50? It should work when JFU MQs drop it under $50 but wonder if a clerk would even scan it....

SJ store at Snell/Blossom Hill had a lot of stuff. There's a red machine as soon as you walk in. Follow the aisle it's on to the back of the store.

Does anyone know if Sprouts accepts both manufacturer and store coupons on the same item?

I noticed that Arrowhead Mills organic flour is on sale for $3.99/5lb and you can find a $1/1 any Arrowhead Mills Baking Product MQ on Mambo Sprouts and also $1/1 Store Q on Sprouts' website.
That would be an awesome price for organic flour.

Hi Saishap - Yes, have used store q w/mq several times at Sprouts, always easy peasy, no issues. Very Good CS.

the 13.5 oz is a lot of spices, I'm thinking this is a special rub or special package of some sort, like for skillets or dinners.

It looks like it. I'm in Stockton for the weekend so I can't check the fine print. Prices don't apply here either. If anyone has the Nov 16 Sac Bee, check it for the ad.

Where are you spending your free $25 from Amex [americanexpress.com] next Saturday. I'm leaning towards Ace Hardware and combining with 50% off coupon. But I might go for some gourmet food. My card has 3 authorized users so $75! Decisions! Decisions! Big Grin

thanks for the heads up on this! will i have to load it on my card? maybe i should authorize my DH to get an 'associate' Amex Costco card (which is what i have).

Also, anyone else doing the get $25 back if you spend $100 at costco.com before 12/31 (there's a thread on SD here about that) and what did you buy? I guess buying $100 gift card works for this, but any confirms here? thanks! Smilie

yes, the word definitely got out by Saturday early afternoon, hopefully they'll restock and those who already got them won't have any more coupons to get in on the deal and can let others get a few. Of course I don't hold my breath on any SW deals... Frown

The reach toothbrushes were COMPLETELY wiped out at the SW by me, so much so that there's not even a label/pricetag for ANY reach tb's anymore... EEK!

hug back
