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.

$1.00 off Kashi Granola Cereal LOOK AT HENRYS DEAL FOR CEREAL THIS WEEK AND YOU'LL GET IT FOR $1 AC This was 4.99, but as you point out, better deals if you use coupon elsewhere, IIRC, Shaw's and Walmart Supercenters carry this as well. IMO, the best flavor is "Cocoa Beach"drool

That Greek Yogurt scares me! Is there Goat Milk in it?
As it turns out, they just strain the whey out of it, here is a description from the Stonyfield site.

http://www.stonyfield.com/OurProd...Yogurt.cfm

I tried the Honey tonight, much better than the blueberry. It does have a strong yogurt flavor to it, but there is a small pool of organic honey at the bottomyummy , it is a pretty intense flavor experience, anyway, well worth the .34 on sale with the coupon. Avoid the blueberry though.

4) Whoopie pies are highly recommended at 2.79 for a 4 pack.drool

The MS $2 Wellness brand coupon for dog or cat staff applies for their canned food. The doggie ones in a can are $1.79 in NorCal (didn't check for kitties).

No overage for me, but free + tax. HTH

thank you so much!

it's frustrating not to know what's on sale at Whole Foods

the Greek yogurt is delicious. I eat it every morning. I use the plain, and add my own fruit and a little cereal or granola.

Too bad it's not goat's milk yogurt. I'd love to find a cheap goat's milk yogurt=more digestible than cow's milk yogurt.

p.s. to OP - repped, but disagree on your comment that Steaz too expensive. Can't find any other diet soda that has stevia as a sweetener.

$1 off Muir Glen (used on canned soup, which is $2.99 reg. price, but so nice to have around when you have a cold)
$1 Cascadian Farms product (used on fr. vegtable when they go on sale for $2)

Mambos coupons have been removed from the store because Stop & Shop is suing based on the "Real Deal" phrase.

Can these be obtained anywhere else in Eastern MA?

BTW: I like the Blueberry Oikos yogurt. And everyone should try the Alden Blackberry ice cream. Out of this world good, and only 25cents per serving.

Wow...really? I'm in NorCal, my hometown store has a habit of making the books available for about one week. Then, they are hidden and doled out or who knows what throughout the season. Since I'm accustomed to this poor tactic, I scoop when they are first out. But this time, perhaps it's the lawsuit, becasue they are GONE!


BTW - I've used the Wellness coupons, but again...my local WF has nearly emptied the shelves and NOT reordered the canned dog food. I think I'm the only one who has made purchases these past few weeks. I'm looking forward to checking out other WF to find out more.

I was so excited to see this thread. I think my occasional "slickdeals" at Whole Foods are my proudest!

Not sure if the cupons would be exactly the same, but you can have mambosprouts mail you coupons from mambosprouts.com . The website also has printable coupons for the organic and health foods they promote. I love the site.

Does Whole Food carry Fruitbu? and the price? I was at supertarget searching for this, seems like it doesn't carry this at all. Maybe Whole Food does?
