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.

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.

The $2/1 WFQ on the frozen food expires soon. I'd say they're all worth it with the $2 Q. If anything, at least try the apple blossoms, even zapped in the micro they're pretty damn good.

Word of warning though, heed the lava cake microwave times. It says 30-45 seconds, and I left it in there for over a minute since my micro is on the lower wattage side. At around 1:05 to 1:10 my microwave started spewing out smoke. The chocolate filling inside the middle had completely gotten burnt to a crisp.

I could not find any sweet dessert at my WF store. Where did you dind yours? I saw ppl mentioned icecream but I could not find it here either.

Also Samosa with peas is indeed $2.69 here. The one with Tandora chicken is $2.99. You may want to check again. They are good with chuney dip. (not sure where to find them, but my Indian neighbor gave me some home made chuney when I shared the Samosa with her .Smilie )

The microwavable desserts are between the ice cream and waffles/potatoes here. I guess that's kind of a big range though. It's just one shelf, and it is easy to miss. I know where they are and sometimes I still pass over them without realizing it. There's (3) types apple blossoms, chocolate chip lava cake, and double chocolate lava cake.

I think there's (4) types of ice cream pints: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and coffee....all lined up in one shelf like the other desserts. White container with the WF green font. I haven't tried any of the ice cream, maybe I should grab one before it ends.

Yeah, I went back and saw the samosa with peas were indeed $2.69. I tried the Tandoori chicken, but I just don't like Indian food altogether, pretty much.

The Annie's supreme pizza is pretty delicious. It was better than the spinach and mushrooms. I wish they stocked BBQ chicken so I could of tried that.

I am not a cat lover. My sister is deathly allergic to cats. When we were growing up we wore each other's clothes and if I ever even touched a cat, she would be ill for days. I learned to stay away from them and, just from habit, mostly still do.

As I said, I am not really a cat lover. (Now CATS are another thing altogether!)

I haven't seen any desserts either - at any of the 4 stores I go to. Frown

Also depending on the size of the store, the less they might have. Our smallest one here didn't have anything but the eggrolls/stir fry/pasta - no pizza, indian meals, etc.

The So Delicious coconut creamers are on sale for $2 each at my WF. With the $1/2 WFQ and the 55 cent MFQ that's a decent price, especially if you can't have dairy. It's way better than almond or soy milk.

Can't believe I didn't think of asking at WF...hiw many do I need to buy of one variety of the wf frozen foods to get the case discount. Probably too late to get a set w/out clearing shelf...which I don't wanna do...but if my store boxes in the box I'm okay with that laugh out loud. I've been to 3 stores and they've all been cook taking 12qs but I've only gotten a max of 4 per variety and I'm limiting my budget to 2.99 max items that are vegg. Our family is really greatfull for this hug

Today I made a trip to WF to use that $2 Q the last time before it expired and I saw a note that on Dec 8th there will be sale 25% off on all frozen foods. Wish the $2 was still valid then. Smilie

Saw the Arrowhead Mills pancake mixes on sale for $3.50. Is there any WFQ for them? I know there is $1MQ in the $10 coupon book, but not sure about WFQ.
