  • Ralphs: 2/9 – 2/15/11

    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.

    Here’s a heads up for next week: I received a Catalina stating that starting next week (2/15-3/1), the Daytona 500 promo will be back – buy 10 participating items and get $3 off at checkout plus a $3 Catalina coupon for your next order. If I’m not mistaken, That $3 Catalina is entirely new and they’re doubling our savings this year!

    There’s a small box on the last page of my ad that seems to indicate there’s double rewards for gift card purchases – it says to see store for details.

    1. quick question for ya! im looking online at the flyer right now and i dont see any mention of the filet mignon for 5.99 for thursday only…hmmm, am i looking at the wrong page on the website? unfortunately the flyers that get delivered to my building were all gone by the time i got home last night (ps-i live in LA as well)

    2. last night I stopped by Ralphs to pick up a few of the deals that were about to end. I got 2 packs of the Hebrew National Hot Dogs that were on sale for B1G1. I had a $2.00 off 2 coupon for the hot dogs. When I checked out the register beeped at my coupon. The cashier told me it wouldn't accept it because I wasn't really buying 2 packs of hot dogs. Since they were buy one get one free. What? Has anyone ever had this happen?

    3. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Lisa – The Thursday sale was on a small wrap around on the main ad. I would recommend calling your store to see if they are doing the sale today if you're not sure, or they normally don't participate in it.

      @Corna – I don't think I've ever had that problem personally, but since the official coupon policy is tiny (printed at the end of the weekly ad), I don't know that there's much you can do except try to get a different cashier or ask the manager if they'll take the coupon. I do know that some stores do apply the policy of not applying coupons to the item that's free in a BOGO sale, so this is not an unusual thing to have happen, if that's any comfort.
