Safeway & Bashas

I got some of my shopping done today. I'd rather not go out over the long weekend, so I tried to get some of it out of the way today...

5.99 Tide Stain Release (with in-ad Q)
-3.00/1 PG Home Mailer or 5/2 MQ PG
-3.00/1 EQ - load here
.01 overage

1.00 Zone Perfect bars (3)
-.55/1 MQ 5/16 SS (3)

1.99 Ziploc Containers (4) - price wyb 3+
-.55/1 MQ 5/16 SS (4)
3.96 OOP, Earned (2) $2 OYNO
.04 profit

.33 Sun Rype Strips (2) - price good through 6/15
-BOGO IPQ - print here (auto'd at .59)
4 cents each

.99 Oscar Meyer Hardwood Smoked Turkey Hot Dogs (2) with in-ad Q
-1.00/1 green peelie found on package (2)
.01 overage each
The green peelie is only good on the Angus and Hardwood Smoked Turkey varieties. A previous commenter noticed the Angus was not included in the .99 sale, so we assumed the green peelies did not apply to this sale. However, when I went to my Safeway today, I noticed the Hardwood Smoked Turkey variety is included. And these are the ones I wanted anyway - turkey and no nitrates! Time to stock up!

1.99 Sun-Maid Raisin Boxes
-.55/1 peelie MQ
We are out of raisins and 99 cents is a good price - cheaper than the Safeway brand!

5.00 subtotal + .98 tax = 5.98 on Safeway gift card
Earned (2) $2 OYNO
SUMMARY = 1.98 cost

I was planning on cashing in my 9 Pantene 1.00/1 MQs for the .99 clearanced products I found (thanks for the tip Sheryl!),  but every coupon beeped because it exceeded the price. The manager said he would push 3 through, but not all 9. I just took them all off. I'll go to another Safeway. The one I went to (Val Vista/Southern) didn't have any shampoo or conditioner anyway. It was all hair spray and gel.

Today was a fantastic day to find coupons at Safeway! Here's what I found:
  • "Add Dairy to Your Summer Adventure" Coupon Booklets - I've seen these all over the coupon blogs, but hadn't seen them here before today. They have arrived in AZ! There were tons in plastic hanging cases in front of the cheese, yogurt, and near the milk. Make sure to pick one up - they are full of awesome MQ & Store dairy Qs!
  • 1.00/1 O Organic Coupons - I've been hearing about these mythical coupons for awhile, so I was excited to finally see some at my Safeway at the pharmacy counter. It's a single coupon on cardstock good for 1.00/1 O Organic item and it doesn't expire until 12/31/10! Other couponers are getting free Organic dairy by pairing this coupon up with clearanced items. Keep your eyes peeled for these little treasures!
  • May 2010 HBA Coupon Booklets - I had a few from earlier in the month, but I wanted to grab another few so I could stock up on free Right Guard deodorant at Fry's using the .55/1 MQ in these booklets. (Thanks for the heads up Sheryl and KC!)
I had a few of the 1.00/2 Bar S MQs, but I knew each transaction had a limit of 2 with a $10 minimum purchase. So, I went to self check-out, and before scanning my Bashas card, I scanned 2 hot dogs, plus enough items to get me over the $10 requirement. Then, I scanned my Bashas card and my coupons. Each of my transactions needed a banana or two to bring it positive. I didn't pay any OOP at Bashas. Here are the deals I got:

.47 Bar S Hot Dogs (6)* (with in-ad Q)
-1.00/2 MQ 5/16 RP
.06 overage
* These were split into multiple transactions of 2.

.99 American Beauty pasta (2)
-.50/1 IPQ (2) - print here

.99 Vlassic Relish (4)
-.55/1 IPQ (4) - print here
.01 overage each

1.00 Farmer John sausage
-.75/1 IPQ - print here

.59/lb. bananas - fillers

While at Bashas, I realized the McCormick Grillmates were 1.50, not 1.00, so no free seasoning. Oh well, I'm sure it will be free pretty soon here.

I found lots of tearpad, blinkie, & peelie Qs. My favorite was Free Eggs wyb 2 Kellogg's cereals.

Bashas at Crismon & Baseline is always fun because you get to scan your own coupons in. I LOVE that because I can verify the sales prices as I scan the items & make sure each coupon is scanned and none are stuck together and missed.


  1. what bashas do u go to? The one I go to (I think on brown) does not have self check out

  2. Teresa - I go to the Bashas at Crismon & Baseline in East Mesa. Thanks for the comment!

  3. Ok..I got a bit your post you said Southern & Crismon & I'm like, "There is no Bashas there??" Then dh was like...She meant Baseline! lol! I'm glad he was reading! lol! Great runs!

  4. Anon- I will fix that mistake in the post! So sorry about that - thanks to your husband for correcting it! :)
