I did not have a Saturday Sampler this week.
We didn't get one this week either. Those just started coming before we made our trip, so it must be a Safeway thing that Albertsons adopted. I've been watching your sales since shopping over on the Coast a few weeks ago.
Overall, you get a lot better prices on many things than we do. You seem to have at least one really great "loss leader" coupon at the top of the coupon column in the ad each week. When we were on the Coast it was a bag of Mandarins for about $1.47 one week and frozen meals for 47 cents one week. Looks like it could be cheap cereal this week?
We don't get those. We've got 88 cent Progresso soup in that spot this week -- which is the same price we can get it for this week and quite regularly at other stores including Kroger.
However, on some items it looks like we are about a week ahead of you in the sale cycle. We sometimes get Yoplait on sale the week before you do. Last week, we got Tillamook Yogurt while this week you have Lucerne when we don't have a yogurt deal at all.
Our peppers were 88 cents last week, but this week they are two for three dollars.
I noticed a week or two you mentioned a great deal on oat milk coming the following week and we had a deal that week, however, it was part of a Fab Four sale and the only other item we could have used on the sale was Muir Glen tomatoes. Our stores got rid of Muir Glen a few years back so I couldn't take advantage of the sale.
I still REALLY miss those coupons you get for things like one dollar off cereal, organics, frozen food and produce though. We don't get anything close to that here -- at least without spending fuel points to redeem for them. And of course, we don't get the weekly doubler coupons either, but I didn't really have any 50 cent coupons for items we needed while we were on the road anyway, so didn't get much use from them.
