Thread Details

Yes, I know you don't necessarily associate Whole Foods and Slickdeals, but I actually live a few blocks away from one(in the same shopping center as a CVS, lol), and I frequently stop in on the way back from the gym. No, they don't double coupons, and you usually can't get the outrageous deals that you can get at CVS or a conventional supermarket for that matter, but you can frequently get decent deals, not to mention lots of free samplesyummy And their '365' house brand is usually comparably priced to Trader Joe's, and cheaper than a comparable supermarket item. And maybe it's the economy, but I have noticed them getting considerably cheaper on some advertised items as of late.

Sales for Whole Foods stores are regional, although they seem to have some national deals on grocery items(canned and packaged foods). Sales tend to run on 2 and 4 week cycles, and new cycles tend to start on Wednesdays. They also tend to have regional sales, that run on the weekends or may also run on 2 week cycles(the "Madness" sales in the Northeast) that tend to feature regional deals like produce, meat, prepared food, bakery etc.

Your best bet to find out what's on sale at your local store, is to go to your store's website, which is located at www.wholefoodsmarket.com. Enter your zip code up top, and pick your store. In addition to the sales circular, there is often a calendar of store events, a twitter feed or facebook page.
One aspect of Whole Foods is that the stores tend to have a lot more "events" than a conventional supermarket. These can be promotions, contests,
sampling events, cooking classes. If your store calendar isn't posted online, there is always one at the store entrance. And while many of these promos are not worth a separate trip(though I have gotten some nice sample packs at times), if you are going to the store anyway, why not go when they are giving something away?

Whole Foods also distributes a coupon book in store, called "The Whole Deal". These are store coupons and are will NOT scan at other retailers, despite the bar codes. You should be able to combine them with a manufacturer coupon, but YMMV.

WHOLE FOODS DEALS

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com

Whole Foods sales are a combination of national(usually grocery items) and regional(produce, meat, prepared food) check your store's circular at Wholefoods.com for your specific sale items.

Also, see if your store has its own Facebook page(example: https://www.facebook.com/WFMCharlesRiverPlaza or twitter feed example: https://twitter.com/WFM_Swampscott

In addition to sales, you can find information for product sampling events, giveaways, and other promotions. If you're going to go to the store anyway, why not go when they're giving something away?

Get your meat marinated LMAO

Quote from getgreen09 View Post :

on a separate note:

i went to buy some marinated organic chicken, meat counter person said they can't sell pre-marinated organic chicken, because the meat area has non-organic meats, and so once they process the organic meat, it is considered non-organic, even though in reality it is organic.

ahh, good to know.

however, once they give you this disclaimer, if you select a cut of prepackaged organic free range chicken, or organic grass fed beef or what have you, they will happily baste it in the marinade of your choice should you so want. which means while you shop around the store, and then drive home, the meat can marinate and then you can cook it as soon as you get home and put away the other groceries. it's a decent time-saver if you don't mind the brief contact with non-organic meats in the counter area - i figured it's a good option to keep in mind for when one is really crunched for time.

I appreciate this! We will be living near a Whole Foods next month and I prefer to buy organic. The coupons listed above, are they store coupons? I have some MQs for some of those items and I am wondering if they are combine-able. Thanks

No, they are manufacturers coupons, except for the ones on 365, the house brands, so you probably won't be able to 'double dip'.

Terra Chips MIR. Peelie is attached to packages of "Stripes and Blues". Also good on Terra Crinkles and Kettle Flats. One per household or mailing address. Need original form, original receipt, and 3 x 5 card to write address on. Expires 8/31/08. Don't need UPC though, you can 'double dip' with Terra-Tini serving bowl(need 2 upcs + 2.99 s/h), details at www.terrachips.com. so if you have 2 addresses to mail refunds to, you can get 2 bags of chips and the serving bowl for 2.99 + 3 stamps. i'll add this to the wiki.

I'll try to hit some of these today(maybe the ones that look most promising) and report back. I agree that the Kashi Granola coupon is a good one, it is frequently on sale, and the chocolate coconut is really good. And I also agree the Back to Nature coupon is a good one, they have all sorts of products including some yummy natural oreos. And they are also carried at conventional grocery stores. I'll see if anything is on sale at Whole Foods.

Wellness Dog or Cat has no restrictions. $2.00 off any.
Sweet Simplicity is an all natural zero calorie sweetener--lol i'm not sure what that's made out of.
Rice Select coupon has no restrictions. $1.00 on any.
I'll try the Oikos yogurt today and report back, usually anything from Stonyfield is pretty good.
Natrol are vitamins/supplements like Nature's Bounty etc. I think CVS or Walgreens has had deals on them in the past.

Don't forget that Mambo Sprouts coupons are manufacturer's coupons, so they can be used anywhere. The < $1 coupons work great at Harris Teeter, where they're automatically doubled.

The CVS Natrol coupons are expired. CVS is nearing end of clearance on acai, acidophilus, and others. The Walgreens Natrol coupon is $8 wyb 3 any Natrol, manufacturer coupon good only at Walgreens. Walgreens had BOGO on Natrol week of 7/6.

A few updates from visit to local store:

Split chicken breasts are 1.99/lb in-store(even though they are listed at 2.99 in the circular). This special, along with 8 1/3 hamburgers for $8, has signage indicating the price is good until August 12.

Coupons/Deals

365 Organic Italian Tomatoes(28 oz) $1 off--These are 1.79-2.49. I didn't include the "Italian" notation previously. There are regular ones for 1.49, you might be able to use the coupon on those.

$2 off Wellness Dog/Cat product POTENTIAL ~~~ NEED MORE SPECIFICS ON IF THERE ARE ANY REQUIREMENTS ON THIS COUPON. This could be a hot deal, the coupon has no restrictions, and they have cans of cat food for .99 and dog food for 1.99.Pictured on the coupons are bags(which are much more expensive), but on the facing page, it says "Available in Dry & Canned Food".

$1 off any Taste Bud baby food(8/31/08) WHATS THE CHEAPEST ITEM FOR THIS Didn't see this at the local store, however, from the picture, I actually think this might be in the frozen food aisle. Most of the other brands of frozen baby food were 3.99 + up.

75 off any 2 packages of Nut Thins Crackers HOW MUCH IS THIS These were 2.69 or 2.79, but I have seen these carried at conventional grocery stores, so might be good doubled.

.70 off any Back to Nature product WOO HOO NOW TO FIND A DEAL WITH THIS COUPON IF ITS ON SALE OR WHAT No deals this week. Their version of Oreos are 3.99, but have been on sale for $3.00 in the past. Again, could be very useful at a conventional supermarket, they sell cookies, crackers, and granola.

$1 off any 5.3 oz cup or 16 oz cup Oikos Greek Yogurt IVE NOT TRIED THIS YET... HOW DOES IT TASTE I can't believe this is 1.34/cup on sale!!!! Anyway, I tried it with the coupon, so .34 is fine. It is VERY creamy compared to regular yogurt, and has no fat and not many (90)calories, so I think that's the appeal. However, it had a pretty strong 'yogurt' taste(as opposed to something like Yoplait, which tastes like puddingLMAO ), can't say I thought it was that great. I had the blueberry, I'll try another flavor today.

$1 any RW Knudsen 32 oz Just Juice HOW MUCH IS THIS This was between 3.99(cherry)-7.39(pomegranate). Pass, unless it goes on sale, although it is 100% pure juice.

34cents a cup is a nice price to pay for yogurt with the way that yogurt prices are skyrocketing these days. Although I wonder why its so creamy.... I might try once I finish my week of Horizon Yogurt that Im getting for 10cents a cup. Yogurt and granola and honey along with a lil wheat germ Mmmmmm

$1 any RW Knudsen 32 oz Just Juice HOW MUCH IS THIS This was between 3.99(cherry)-7.39(pomegranate). Pass, unless it goes on sale, although it is 100% pure juice.
HOLY macaroni WTH is up with the juice prices.... At the pomegranate price I can get POM and not use a coupon.
