  • Ralphs: 7/15 – 7/21/09

    The Mix & Match event is back at Ralphs this week (Safeway stores too, so Vons and Pavilions out here in SoCal), but unless there are good unadvertised M&M deals, it looks like a pretty slow week to me. I’m going to go for the produce deals, and I’ll take a look around while I’m there. In the meantime, below are the best deals I see in this week’s circular – I’ll update the post throughout the week as other deals come to light.

    Mix & Match – Buy 10 participating items and get $5 off
    Vitamin Water $1.29 – if you have a $1 off coupon, these will be a 21-cent moneymaker after coupon and M&M (actually, 16 cents after CRV)

    Kellogg’s Cereal, Nutri-Grain bars, & Special K bars $2.49 – if you have a $1 off coupon, these will be 99 cents after M&M discount; the ad shows Mini-Wheats and Raisin Bran, which you can get for 88 cents after coupon at Target this week, but the cereal will be a decent filler if you need something to get to your 10 items.

    Keebler Fudge Shoppe Cookies $2.49 – There are printables for these here and at Coupons.com. The final price will range from 99 cents to $1.49.

    Note: You can combine the Keebler cookies and Kellogg’s cereal deal to do the Fuel for School rebate, but Target is probably a better deal if you have coupons. See Money Saving Mom for Target scenario examples.

    Colgate Toothpaste 4.0-6.0 oz or 8.2 oz $1.99 – use a $1 coupon from the 7/12 SS or 75 cents coupon from the 6/28 SS, with a 75 cents coupon from Cellfire.com for a final price of 24 cents

    Daisy Sour Cream 16 oz. $2.49 – Use the 50-cents off coupon from the 5/31 RP and get it for 99 cents.

    The rest of the deals
    Black plums or yellow nectarines 49 cents/lb

    Personal watermelon or Tuscan cantaloupes $1.99 each

    Ralphs milk 1 gallon $1.99

    Oscar Mayer bologna or salami 88 cents

    Boneless pork butt $1.99/lb

    Asparagus $1.99/lb

    Green or yellow zucchini 99 cents/lb

    Dannon Light ‘n Fit Nonfat Yogurt 6 oz. 60 cents – use the 60 cents off 6 coupon from the 5/3 SS for a final price of 6/$2.60

    Thanks to CalItalian at SlickDeals for some of the deals.
