  • Ralphs: 10/12 – 10/18/11


    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. Learn about shopping at Ralphs, including their coupon policy, here.

    I’ve marked what I consider to be stock-up prices with an asterisk (*). It may not be the lowest price I’ve ever seen, but it’s low enough that I think it’s worth buying extra if it’s something you buy regularly.

    There’s a new Cartbuster Savings Event, so check this page every day for a new coupon. Today’s coupon is $2/1 Bounty 8+ roll. I’ll post the rest of the daily coupons on the Chief Family Officer Facebook page each morning.

    1. I’ve noticed $2/2 peelies on the Nestle water 24-packs in my Los Angeles area Ralphs markets…making the 24-packs $2.99 when you buy 2 :)

    2. I was at Ralph’s this morning and wasn’t able to get the Pepsi deal. My coupon didn’t double, and the cashier pointed out that it says “do not double”. On the plus side, I found packages of Old El Paso taco seasoning for 99 cents, and my Old El Paso coupon (50 cents off, not sure where/when from) did double, making it free.

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        Thanks for the update, Deva! I haven’t clipped my coupons yet and didn’t realize it said do not double.. That’s a bummer!

    3. Hello! I was wondering, are these “deals” the same as if I were to look at the ralphs weekly paper? I feel as if I can go to the closest Ralphs location and walk through the isles and find “MORE” deals that are not posted.. Is there any way to find out what ELSE is on sale inside the store? Or do I need to go and do a walkthrough first and figure out what is best.. then go home and see if those match my coupons in my binder? For example, if Van De Kamps bread is 2/5$ but it is not posted in the weekly ad, how do I find those hidden in-store deals in which I may have a manufacturer’s coupon to get better savings? Please help!
      PS: Ralphs ecoupons (the ones that transfer directly to your store card) cannot be combined with paper coupons… so why use the ecoupons then? They don’t seem to be a better deal if I cannot combine it with a manufacturers coupon..
      Help please – Im extremely new at this!!

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        Hi Andrea,

        If you read the intro, you’ll see that I state the match ups are done using the weekly. The purpose of this post is to “match up” coupons to the deals in the ad, so that you can scan the post and know what coupons are out there, rather than have to do all the work yourself. For hidden deals, yes, you may have to go to the store yourself. If I see some great ones while I’m shopping, I’ll share them here at Chief Family Officer, and we have some great readers who will share hidden deals in the comments. But usually the best deals are in the ad. Hope that helps, and welcome to couponing!
