  1. Ranata Byrd says:

    Just a quick tip that I recently noticed:

    The Lucerne Brand Cheeses have the “Real California Cheese” Sticker on them – so you can use the “Real California Cheese” coupon (I think it was $.55 off – which is $1 off at Safeway).

    The Lucerne Brand Butter also has the “Real California Butter” sticker on it as well and we had another coupon for $.55 off for that well (which is a $1 off at Safeway).

    Yay!!!

    • Teresa C says:

      Ranata, thanks for the tip! I paid $5 for a 2lb bag of Lucerne shredded cheese the other day with the use of the .55/1 coupon that doubled. The coupon did beep though, but the cashier said it was perfectly legitimate to use the coupon since it does not specify a specific brand, but just requries the seal to be on the product. Really good deal on cheese!

  2. I’m wondering why you recommend using manufacturer coupons on top of e-coupons here. They won’t stack coupons. :( You also did this for King Soopers. They also do not allow coupon stacking.

    • Safeway allows the use of the in-ad coupons with eCoupons, according to official response from corporate. Their in-ad coupons are also available as eCoupons. These are the eCoupons we have matched up above with manufacturers coupons.

      Not sure what you’re referring to with King Soopers, but it’s possible we listed a couple of different varieties of coupons to use – “coupon OR coupon”, not “coupon AND coupon”.

      • You’re right. There was no stacking recommendations in the King Soopers post. I think I was thinking of Alberston’s with the Sara Lee in-ad coupon with the manufacturer coupon. I asked at the Union/Research location and they said one coupon per item but I guess it depends on your checker? Has anyone had luck stacking there?

        • Albertsons is hit or miss, and won’t release any sort of corporate ruling. Their in-ad coupons are (usually, with a few exceptions) set up as store coupons so they should be able to be combined, but you’re right, it depends on the checker.

        • Teresa C says:

          I’ve stacked at Albertsons in Pueblo on multiple occassions – I always hand them the Albertsons coupon last though. Not sure if it makes a difference or not, but it’s a habit.

  3. Teresa C says:

    Wow – I compared the difference in the Springs area ad for this week with the Pueblo ad and there are some differences. I noticed 17 price differences, with the Pueblo ad always having the cheaper price. The ad for Pueblo covers the 3 stores in the city, but does not include the Pueblo West store (the store in PW has the same prices as the Springs ad).

    Some of the differences: Strawberries = $4.99 in CS, $3.99 in Pueblo / Watermelon = $2.98 in CS, $1.98 in Pueblo / Fried Chicken = $8.99 in CS, $7.44 in Pueblo / Chicken leg quarters = .79 in CS, .59 in Pueblo.

    I checked the KS and Albertsons ads, and those matched up – it’s just Safeway that is different – and some are big differences.

    Since I live in Pueblo, I’m happy about the differences, but am not to savvy on rating the prices on my own. :(

    • Thank you so much for this post! I also live in Pueblo. I thought on several occasions that I was just going crazy and made my lists wrong when the prices were different! :) It’s good to know that there are differences.

    • Wow! Well, I guess at least the prices are less rather than more! We’ll try to do a quick check of Pueblo prices going forward. I would DEFINITELY stock up on chicken leg quarters at $0.59/lb!

      • Teresa C says:

        Carrie – I was amazed at the differences when I compared the ads yesterday! It would be awesome if you could check the Pueblo ad in the future for us. Like I said, I’m not too savvy when it comes to rating a sale – so any help would be great! Thanks!

        • Well, if it’s any significant difference, I would simply bump up the rating by one. However, if Pueblo is consistently cheaper, the rating would probably be the same even if the prices are different, since your “rock bottom” prices would tend to be lower.

        • I am in Pueblo West and always check Carrie’s ad! So glad to see fellow Pueblo shoppers. Also – it is VERY helpful to know that I can get a little cheaper prices just by driving a little further. Now if I can just get my freezer fixed, I’ll stock up on those leg quarters! Thanks!

          PS – our taxes are lower in PW – so I wonder if that’s why we are higher out here than in Pueblo….??

          • Teresa C says:

            Well, if I could only read the ad correctly – the chicken leg quarters are .99 in CS, and .79 in Pueblo. I blame the Rockies game I was faithfully watching as I was initially typing up my first comment with the prices. :) Sorry!

            Not sure if the tax difference in PW and P make the difference, but I’ve noticed some in-store specials being different as well. For example, the “fresh” bagels at the 29th St store are .25 each, but in PW – they are .50…Hmmm.

  4. Yeah! We can have burgers again!!!

  5. QUestion on BOGO- Vlasic Pickles. Can you use 2 coupons on the BOGO? I have several $0.55/1 coupons and am not sure on their BOGO policy. Thanks.

    • Liz is right – you can only use one coupon on a B1G1 – this is actually printed in the back of their ad, amazingly enough! Kind of random, huh?

  6. My experience is that they will not allow 2 Q’s on a BOGO. I don’t know if that’s actual policy, or just the milage I receive.

    If you try the second Q and they refuse it, make sure they don’t try to throw it out — also my experience.

  7. I had a postcard mailer of coupons from Safeway that expired today. I used both the $10 off coupon and the $3 off of ground beef coupon along with 6 other completely free items. I took advantage of the $1.69 (today only) ground beef price too. I can’t believe how much stuff I got for $14 today. AND a new coupon card arrived today for July with several more free items on it.

  8. Hi!
    I’m curious why you rated the B2G3 on the Coke product 12 packs as only a 2-3? We went yesterday and stocked up, and they were $6/12 pack at the Safeway in Monument, so they came out to $2.40 per 12 pack. That’s $4.80 for a 24, which ends up being 20 cents a can, and I have never seen pop cheaper than this. I’d love to find a better price, so I’m curious, when/how/where is it cheaper than this?
    This site has been extremely helpful as I try to bring out grocery budget down, and learn how to use coupons.
    Thanks!!: )

    • They’re actually rated a 3. We see that price fairly often – if it drops below about $2.50, the rating goes higher.

      I thought that King Soopers and Albies had them for $2.40 this week, but I don’t see it now – that must have been last week.

  9. I accidentally found a great deal on flour while I was at Safeway today — the store brand 10 lb bags are $1.99! I know that’s rare for summer time, so I thought I’d share! This was at the Rockrimmon location.

  10. Stephanie R says:

    I don’t think it’s advertised, but Safeway has pork shoulder (bone-in) for $1.29 a lb. I feel like ANY meat for that price is a good deal, but I really have no idea. Any thoughts?

    • I thinks that’s a great deal, but was better last year when it was $.99/lb. Man have prices gone up!

      At least you can throw a roast in the crockpot with the BBQ sauce that many of us got for free. I call that an easy, tasty dinner with leftovers. I’ll take some of the leftover that isn’t too saucy and crisp it in a frying pan for breakfast with a over-easy egg on top — yum!

      • I agree with Liz, we haven’t seen nearly as good of prices on pork shoulder this year – not even at Rancho Liborio!

  11. Heather says:

    Springs bargains is the closest thing us up here in Cheyenne, Wyoming have to a match-up. I hear a blog is getting started soon by a local, I guess I’ll have to wait and see how it is. I know some of our prices match Springs some don’t. We are usually higher. It stinks. I guess they consider us out in the boonies and it takes more gas to get it here hence the higher prices. At least Springs helps me get an idea what to look for so THANKS!

    I do have a question though, do you have a list of “rock bottom” prices that you’ll pay for stuff. I mean, one you will share with us. I started a price book but haven’t been at it long enough to know what is a good deal and my memory stinks so if it’s not written down forget it, literally;) If you don’t have a list could you put a short one together for us? It would be so helpful to us coupon virgins.
