  • Ralphs: 5/11 – 5/17/11

    Update on this week’s deals at Chief Family Officer’s Facebook page.

    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 Mega Sale continues this week, so buy 10 participating items and get $5 off at checkout. I noticed that instead of taking off $5, this time the register took off $0.50 for each item, which was different but had the same result. There should be more items tagged in store, so be on the lookout for shelf tags. Prices listed are after the Mega Sale discount:

      Hi there! I was so excited to find your blog with commentary specific to LA area stores. All my favorite blogs before were centered in Chicago, and sometimes their deals and prices are not applicable out here. I could never plan a shopping trip in confidence b/c I wasn't sure if my Ralphs deals would be different from their Hilander deals.

      Anyways, I did have a couple of questions/comments:
      You say the Miracle Whip is $2.49 after the Buy 10 thing, but that there's a $.75/1 coupon in 5-15 SS. Since the $.75/1 coupon will "double" to $1/1, wouldn't the Miracle Whip be $1.49, not $1.99? And you only have to buy one, right?

      Also, I saw this on a Chicago blog, and I called my local Ralphs to verify. Kraft BBQ sauce is on sale for $.69 after the Buy 10 sale (it was $.49 in Chicago, though – BOO!). That's a pretty good deal, right?

      Thanks for all your hard work! I'm loving it!

      @Venessa – Welcome! Thanks for your comment. You're absolutely right about the Miracle Whip, I'll go fix that.
