  • Ralphs: 1/5 – 1/11/10

    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    Note: This summary of deals is based on the ad I get in Los Angeles, where Ralphs stores double coupons up to $1 (one like coupon per transaction). I don’t list all of the deals, only the good ones. If I missed any, please let us all know in the comments. You’ll need a Ralphs Rewards card to get most of these deals, so I use the Rewards card price in this post and assume you have your card scanned with each transaction. In addition to the coupons listed, you can also add electronic coupons to your Ralphs Rewards card at these sites: Shortcuts.com, Cellfire.com, Softcoin and Upromise. I find the electronic coupons to be unreliable when it comes to stacking them with paper coupons, so I assume they do not stack in the scenarios below. I don’t print every coupon listed, so please verify amounts and quantities listed. If you give Ralphs your email address, they may also send you emails with e-coupons that are exclusive to your card. And if you bring reuseable bags, Ralphs will give you 5 Rewards points for each bag used (though you may need to remind the cashier).

    At least some stores in LA County are still doubling multiple like coupons, including my own store. But until this seems to be a permanent state of affairs, I’m going to assume that only one like coupon will double per transaction.

    The P&G Mix & Match deal continues this week, so buy 4 participating products and get $4 off. Again, if you play The Drugstore Game, you can usually get better deals on these products than you’ll find at Ralphs. There should be more participating products tagged in store than are listed in the ad. Prices listed are after Mix & Match discount:

      Softsoap Handsoap is on sale for $.88. There was a $.35 in last Sundays paper. Making it only $.18 after the double coupon.

      I'm new to your site and have a question. My Ralphs also doubles coupons. So if the Quaker oatmeal is $1.99 and I have a $1 off coupon, wouldn't it be free?

    4. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Jaclyn – Thanks, I'll update the post!

      @Anon 1 – I believe that coupon is for the wrong size, but I'll double check.

      @Anon 2 – Your store might be different (especially if you're not in SoCal), but at the stores where I shop, the max value of a doubled coupon is $1 (so e.g., $0.75 is "doubled" to $1).

      I shop at a Ralph's in Woodland Hills and I used two of the Soft Soap coupons the other day the they doubled both of them! Two soft soaps for $.18 each!
