  • Ralphs: 5/4 – 5/10/11

    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.

      American Cheese Coupon is dead! No more prints available!

      Clif Z coupon no longer avalible on mambo sprouts

    3. went to the 8 hr sale..and they had a sign up about how they "weren't allowed" by the state of CA to sell kraft singles for 99 cents…and that the now would be $1.69 and would load $1 onto your club card for your next purchase.

      During Lunch, I went to grab cheese too. I see the same sign! Ralph say California is to blame for $1.69. I never heard of such a reason for higher prices.

      They use the word HOT PRICE.

    5. Anonymous says:

      Had the same thing happen to me at Ralphs today. But the manager assured me that $1 per cheese purchased would be loaded to my rewards card. So hopefully a $2 credit comes off my next purchase. Did however have no problem with the other freebies….

    6. The Fiber plus waffles are not included in the sale. Neither are the Natural blends cheese.

    7. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Anons – Thanks for the updates!

      @Amanda & Anons – California apparently has some weird dairy law. It's why some coupons exclude dairy, and I've been told stores are not supposed to double dairy coupons even if they don't say DND because of state law.

      @Amber – Thank you for the update!

    8. Corina says:

      A couple unadvertised deals that are included in the Mega sale are Kraft BBQ $.69 & Sargento Cheese Snacks $3.49. Those are mega sale prices (after -$.50) I think there was a manufacturer coupon for the Kraft BBQ in the Albertsons ad. Which would make it cheap or free if they double it.

      Question… What if you buy 11 participating items? Will the 11th be regular priced?
      Thanks!

    10. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Corina – Thanks! I don't know how many people get the Albies ad, since I never do, but the BBQ sauce is a great deal even at $0.69.

      @Anon – If you buy 11, the 11th item will not get the $0.50 discount. So you get the sale price, but not the extra $0.50-off Mega Sale price.

      Thanks for the matchups. I still haven't had a chance to go grocery shopping, maybe tomorrow.
