I recently emailed King Soopers with a question about their coupon policy, and they emailed me the whole thing! I’ve updated the King Soopers FAQ with that policy. I would really encourage you to read it as there’s some important information there about what is and isn’t allowed.
Now, there are some stores that are going to be loose with the number of coupons they’ll double, or a few other things like that, but please keep in mind that this is their official policy and they can enforce it as needed.
Because I never want to endorse or promote couponing practices that are illegal or simply dishonest, I will make every effort to not tell you to do something that goes against their official policy as I know it. I also will need to edit, not approve, or address comments that blatantly go against King Sooper’s official policy. I want this to be fun for everyone, but I also very firmly believe that there’s a way to get deals ethically and that there’s ways to cheat the system, so I just wanted to let you know that if someone suggets doing something not quite honest, I’ll need to respectfully clarify it in some way.
ANYWAY. On to the fun stuff! There are lots of great deals to be had this week, and you don’t have to do anything illegal to get them! ;) Don’t forget to check the entire ad on their website and load your card with Cellfire, Shortcuts, and P&G esaver e-coupons.
- Blackberries $1 (6 oz) – Great price, I’d buy a bunch and freeze them!
- Red, Orange, or Gold Bell Peppers $1 – My target price, occasionally they go lower. This sale comes around frequently.
- Ataulfo Mangoes 2/$1 – Great price, though they’re still cheaper at Albie’s this week.
- Red Pears 99 ¢/lb – My target price.
- Red or Green Leaf Lettuce or Romaine 99 ¢ – My target price, may go a little lower during the summer.
- Avocados $1 – Typical sale price.
- Lemons and Limes 5 for $1 – Definitely going to be MUCH cheaper at Rancho Liborio, but if these are decent size this might be a marginally good deal.
- Carrots 50 ¢ (16 oz) – Good price (these are full-size, not baby-cut carrots).
- Raspberries $2.99 – NOT a good price, we usually see these on sale for $1.
Meat, Dairy, and Frozen:
- Turkey Breast 99 ¢/lb (bone-in, frozen) – I don’t usually buy this cut, but I think it’s a great price; hardly ever see it on sale.
- New York Strip Steak $5.99/lb – About $1 more per pound than I like to pay, but an OK price.
- Pork Shoulder Roast 99 ¢/lb – Great price.
- Gallon Milk $1.99/lb – Cheaper at Safeway this week, but this is still a pretty good price compared to what we were paying even a few months ago!
- Kellogg’s Eggo Waffles $1.99 – Use 75 ¢/1 to get for 99 ¢. Only an OK price, I’ve gotten them free in the not-too-distant past. I’m holding my coupons for a better deal.
- Kroger Cheese $2.50 (16 oz) – Good price.
- Private Selection Ice Cream or Novelties $2.50 – An OK price, can get name brand for around $2 if you can wait for the right sale.
General Grocery and Household:
- Mission Tortilla Caseras $1.29 – Use $1/1 printable to get them for 29 ¢ – stock up!
- Rosarita Refried beans $1.25 – You can get them for $1 at both Safeway and Albies this week. I prefer to wait until there’s a coupon and buy them for around 50 ¢ each.
- General Mills Cereal $2 – Not a good price *unless* you have coupons that would take $1 off one box. I wouldn’t pay more than $1/box. (Personally won’t pay more than about 75 ¢.)
- Kellogg’s Nutri Grain Bars $2.18 – You can use a $1/2 to get for $1.68, but I think that’s high.
- Keebler Pecan Sandies $2.50 – Use 55 ¢/1 to get for $1.50, a decent price though I think they were actually little cheaper (by 50 ¢) recently.
- Various Kashi Products $2.99 – There are $1.50/2 coupons at Coupons.com that make them $2.24 each. Not sure how good of a deal that is.
- Pace Picante Sauce or Salsa $1.99 – Use 50 ¢/1 to get for 99 ¢ each. Good price!
- Palmolive Dish Detergent $2.50 – Look for rebate forms in-store to get Palmolive Free and Clear free after rebate. There’s also a 75 ¢ printable coupon for Free and Clear.
- Sun Burst Laundry Detergent $1.88 – A great price, though it’s not a “top of the line” brand if you’re picky.
- Carefree or Stayfree $2.29 – Use $2/2 Stayfree to get them for $1.29 each, a decent price but not great. There’s only a $1/2 for Carefree, which would make them $1.79 each, not a good price.
- Kroger Comforts Items: Buy $15 get $3 off – The simplest scenario is to use the $3 printable to get diapers for $3.49 if you use two $3 printables, buy three jumbo packs, save $3 instantly and they’re $3.49 each. Update: the printable coupon indicates that they only want you to use the coupon once per customer, so it’s not *quite* as good of a deal, but a still good nonethless. You may also have some coupons from a recent home mailer that you could use on wipes and other items. The best deal is to get your total before $3 instant savings as close to $15 as possible for the best savings percentage, but I’ll let you figure that scenario out on your own. (Hint: buy two packages diapers and add in some wipes to get to $15.)
