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.

Don't forget to ask for the WFQ back after they scan it. I've asked and gotten it back at multiple WFs here in PDX.

I just bought some yesterday and the cpn was auto deducting $3.39.
I used up the last of my orig cpns.

Not sure if my store can give them back. I usually see the cashier write down the price of the product on the cpn and put them in their box.

I wonder if there's a legit reason for them keeping it. I guess I could see maybe why they would keep it like in the previous poster's case when they wrote the value down for a BxGy Q. Perhaps it's a register/computer system thing (maybe on an old setup), and the store is actually going through and counting and totaling the values by hand. I can't imagine that, though.

Most likely the cashier doesn't know the difference between SQ and MQ, and of course they were told to keep all MQs....or management thought it'd be easier to just tell the cashier to do it to cut out any decision making process at the POS.

I saw a quick banner on the news that there was a recall of wild alaskan smoked salmon sold at WF (listeria), if that's something you purchase you may want to look into it HERE. [consumerreports.org]

For those of you that are gluten free, Glutino is making toaster pastries now and they are supposed to be showing up at Whole Foods soon. None in my area yet. Frown Unfortunately the only coupon right now is the 55 cent one on the bottom right of their website. http://www.glutino.com/

Their pretzels are pretty good. I wonder if they ever/often go on sale at WF. Damn you WF marketing!
