  • Ralphs

    Ralphs is the Kroger affiliate here in California. A few years ago – after being unable to find anyone else doing it – I began listing coupon match ups and the best deals at Ralphs each week. Ralphs sales run Wednesday through Tuesday, so new weekly match ups usually come out on Wednesday around noon Pacific time.

    You can find the current deals here.

    Ralphs Coupon Policy
    Read the official Ralphs coupon policy, as well as some of my thoughts about it.

    In general, Ralphs doubles coupons up to $1 (one like coupon per transaction). That means coupons for $0.50 or less will be doubled in value, but coupons for $0.51 through $0.99 off will only “double” to the price of the item or $1, whichever is less. For example, a coupon for $0.40 off will be doubled to $0.80 off. But a coupon for $0.75 off will only “double” to $1 off.

    As of April 1, 2012, Ralphs only accepts coupons at face value (i.e., no more doubles).

    Shopping at Ralphs

    You’ll need a Ralphs Rewards card to get the best deals at Ralphs. If you give Ralphs an email address associated with your Ralphs card, they may send you emails with e-coupons that are exclusive to your card. If you give them your snail mail address, they may send coupon mailers to you.

    You can load electronic coupons to your Ralphs Rewards card at these sites:, SavingStar, Softcoin, and Upromise. Electronic coupons generally cannot be stacked with paper coupons at Ralphs.

    If you bring reuseable bags, Ralphs will give you 5 Rewards points for each bag used (though you may need to remind the cashier).
