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

This was ME saying it. Why is it showing someone else Confused weird!!

Also for those of us that did NOT get the Target bounce coupon from last week, BOLO for $2 off 3 bounce/Tide coupons on Target workout clothing. I think C9 is where I found them. so combined with the $3/3 P&G coupon, comes out to about $1 for three of the small bounce dryer sheets
Haha! I just looked at my notifications - pretty sure I don't live in California. Silly Slickdeals app, posting from other accounts. laugh out loud

thanks again imlkrsfn2, I was wondering if after I click on the bookmarklet whether I'd see anything or notice some change? I waited and then F5'd the SW page but still don't see all the offers added, meaning I can still see offers that I can add, so I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong? Thanks again.
I saw you figured it out but figured I'd add to wait about 10-15 seconds for it to do the work in the background then refresh the page.

thanks again, yes, it works, i haven't tried it more than once, but i plan to use it more. Smilie so thankful for this little program!

For those with Nugget markets who like cottage cheese. Good deal on 16 oz Knudsen ones, $1.99, have CA milk seal = $1.64 after $0.35 MQ. My little one LOVES cottage cheese... maybe other babies do too? Good and pretty healthy source of protein and calcium.

I am most definitely NOT a good Safeway shopper..can only do the easy deals.

Anyway, was very excited to find most of the items for the Try Me Free rebate at Safeway (came in inserts a couple of weeks ago, and random TP) and was proud of myself for getting the info input and in the mail.

I was especially proud of myself because the Totino's Pizza Rolls are part of the Frozen Food promo, so used it in part of my transaction. BUT, missed out on a couple of things.

1) Should've driven, because the Totino's pizza rolls have a peelie on them for a free 2L of Sunkist/Sun Drop soda with purchase. Bags were already full, there was no way I'd be able to lug an additional 2L up the hill.

2) The Endorse app has a couple of applicable items which I did NOT do because I checked it AFTER sending out the rebate. 10% back on Totinos pizza wyb 3, no size limitations. So I should've bought more pizza rolls. Also, 20% back on Fiber One cereals (including the 80 calorie chocolate square that was part of the TMF promo...which I couldn't find at my neighborhood Safeway), so that is ok. This would've been good, since I didn't use much in the way of coupons.

3) Don't forget the coupons from the NorCal frozen foods commission (was it missusg who posted this?) for the frozen foods deal. Talenti $1/1 and Dreyers and Breyers $1/2 were all on their list. (I didn't have these products in my purchase, so at least I'm not kicking myself on these)

Oh well...hopefully my loss will be your gain!

P.S. Anyone tried the pizza rolls yet? What's the taste verdict?

Re: the sparq phone, has anyone in NorCal found it for $29.99? i think its all sold out in my area, and one CS told me it's $49.99 when she went to look for it in the back of her CS counter even though they were out. Just wanted a backup simple phone for MIL, thanks.

My safeway flat out refused to sell it to me for $29.99 even thought that is what the sign says. Heck, even the T-mobile signage that was there said $29.99. Manager tried to tell me that the $25 discount is what brought it down to the $29.99 shake head Sorry, but $49.99-$25.00 is $24.99 NOT $29.99. I argued for a bit, then just gave up. Wanted to get it for my son's birthday on Saturday Sadwalk

typing away, my reply disappeared Frown SD gremlins drive me Crazy
Didn't get totinos, and the norcal Qs are also good for some s-mart/lucky deals
breyers 1.99ea wyb 3 (don't know if 3+) -$1/2 Q(s)
michelinas .88ea - $1/4
didn't try using them myself

my SW 10%s & 30% bread exp tomorrow so I'll trek on over. Don't like to shop unless I can use SCO & I seem to be out when it's not open, or I want FF & can't shop on the way home. Does FF promo end this week?

went to WAGs on Sunday for paper, and got a 5/20
so been checking out WAGs thread
do I really want to get back into it?
If I go, can I ask for some cliff notes from norcal waggers?
-it looks like 5/20 is after SQ & b4 MQs?
-monthly Q says one per customer. Do I believe that? (thinking of .49 tuna-will it work on multiples/trans. like it used to?)
-Nestle morsels are 500 pts wyb 2, do I get 1000pts if I buy 4?

Target:
still no bounce (got Qs, no product!!)
Schick hydrosilk 7.39 here. Reading reports of vast price differences even in the same city.
I got 2 -4IP x 2 & 5/2TQ, coffeemate 2/$3 - bogoIP and method cleaner 2.66-1ip-1TQ
my total was 1.95 Huh
Turned out the Coffeemate bogo auto'd max value 3.99. I only used one & left other in the store, dang it.. Mine exp 3/27.

5/20 at Walgreens? That would be a powerful incentive to learn quick...but then you're sucked in...wish I could help but Wags makes me Confused

Count me as completely Bounce-less as well. Inventory can't stay on the shelves for more than a day. Just how much laundry is everyone doing in NorCal anyway?

thank you both. Yeah, the SW's around here are terrible... at least the one closest to me. Thriftymom, which one did you go to? Was it the EG Florin one or the Laguna one (which is the worst). Sounds like Petaluma's got a great one. Smilie
