  • Ralphs: 11/2 – 11/8/11


    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 Mega Sale this week, so buy 10 participating items and get $5 off at checkout. There are probably more items included in the sale than are listed in the ad, so keep an eye out for shelf tags. Prices listed are after Mega Sale discount:

      Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to list the coupon match-ups. I could not save money if it were not for websites like yours.

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        Thank YOU for letting me know – it always makes my day to know I helped someone save money! 😀

    2. Connie Padilla says:

      Hi there…I remember last year a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving Ralphs had a double coupon event for up to $2 or so. Do you know if they’ll have another similar event? I loved all the great deals I got.

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        I remember it too! I have no idea if they’re bringing that back – I really hope so, but I’m not going to be overly optimistic. My understanding is that the Kroger stores in other parts of the country are becoming less coupon-friendly, not more. But keep your fingers crossed – that was the best, and I’d love to see it again too!

    3. I live in North orange County. We have no stores offering doubles. I would be willing to travel to a Ralphs that doubles. How can I find the nearest one to me.
      Thanks

      Judy

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        I don’t know of any list or database, but I do have a couple of suggestions – the first would be to call Ralphs corporate and ask what the policy is, since the weekly ad implies that all stores double (see the fine print at the end). You might be able to get them to prod a local store into starting at least one double per transaction. My second suggestion would be to post your question on the Slickdeals SoCal grocery thread, as there are posters from all over the area there. Good luck!
