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

Sort of OT, but while we're talking about wine Wink , I found hangtags at CVS yesterday for $3/2 bottles of Turning Leaf wine. IMO, this wine is nothing fantastic, but plenty drinkable with a weeknight dinner. It is currently on sale at CVS for ~$4 a bottle wyb 6, so that makes it ~$2.50 a bottle after Q. There are occasionally MIR for Turning Leaf too... I'm hoping for one of those.

I logged into my Raley's account and have totally different offers for Extra Friendzy.

Got the .99 dozen eggs
But also have:

Save $5.00 on Racer 5 Craft Beer 12-Pack

Save $1.00 on any Barilla Gluten Free Pasta (limit 4)

Buy any Barsotti's Juice and get a second bottle FREE!
16 oz. bottles only

Can we use paper MQ's with these offers (if there are any current Barilla coupons, could be great!)

The Extra Friendzy deals are limited to a certain number of offers. Once people have claimed them all, they disappear Frown

Sorry I wasn't more specific missusg!

I was referring to the CVS brand razor that is listed in the ad with a $5 ECB. Use the $3/1 printable coupon from cvs.com to make the razor:
$6.99 (if that's our local price)
- $3
= $3.99
Get back $5 ECB for a small MM.
I think 8.29 womens, 7.49 mens

I was in 24hr store very early, didnt buy but grabbed one of each & price checked to be sure @ 6.29
they had ECB sign in front

I was already driving to pick up hubs when he called he'd be late, so I stopped at "mean CVS and they were OOS on the razors, prices as above
but I noted another CVS deal with razors
I think my early AM fogged brain grabbed razors that are part of 3ecb wyb $10

Glad i didnt post this morning

Is anybody doing the aisle50 deal at Raleys? I did the free Coke 2L but the other coupons are meh and I don't like having to pay in advance. Especially if it works as "well" as Safeway J4U

No. I was going to do the bleach a week or so ago because I had $2.00 off and it was only $2.29, but they were all sold out Frown I don't like paying in advance either.

I have not done the pay in advance yet either. Just redeemed the free coupons. I havent had any coupon glitches yet though, but I haven't tested the waters all that much yet.


AWESOME pic missusg :-) And I did see on a blog that the Lindt $2/1 reset. The 70% dark chocolate is delicious.



I'm picking up a free lunch today in Petaluma with the eat24.com/paypal deal. Hope it pans out. THere are 4 restaurants in Petaluma that paticipate. None in RP or SR would let you pick up the food, only delivery options.

Yeah, using it a bit. Don't like the pay in advance, but have not had any issues except the one double EQ come off that I reported (a free item and a $1/1, not making it better than free, but lowering the discount the free item Q took off). Not sure if there starts to be two of the same EQs if that means both will come off of one item? Still so early. But, I've liked the fact I haven't had any problems. I guess I've used the EQs about 4-5 times already. I only have two grocery stores in my town and Raley's is one of them (plus close to where I live), so I'm there at least a couple times a week.

I did have one slight issue with Raley's EQs. I had an EQ for free potato chips, kettle chips, or tortilla chips. Had another EQ for free tortilla chips only. Tried to buy 1 bag of kettle chips, 1 bag of tortilla chips - I'm not sure what order they were scanned in or if that mattered, but tortilla chips may have been scanned first. Well, of course the tortilla chips came up free, but the kettle chips didn't. In hindsight, it kinda makes sense, but I wish the register had been a little smarter. Since I didn't want to lose my ability to get free kettle chips at all (since I suspected the kettle chip EQ had attached to my tortilla chips and my tortilla chip EQ was still unused at that point), I had my cashier cancel the entire transaction, then bought the kettle chips and tortilla chips separately (buying kettle chips first of course). Worked fine that way...but just something to keep in mind if you have potentially overlapping EQs like that.

Interesting. Need to keep our eyes peeled on the overlapping EQs!
