  1. The dates are confusing me. When is this sale valid?

  2. Barbara says:

    I work for FM and the ad starts tomorrow 5/13/12 and runs thur saturday. GREAT DEALS in all departments!

  3. I’m so excited for the $11 annuals flats! I snag them every year and thought I had missed it! Woot woot Freddys!

  4. Maribel says:

    Hello. I have a question with Pantene Pro-V $3.33. Do you know if I buy 4 for $3.33 each can I use 2 BOGO Free and 1 $3/2 together (one coupon clipped to each product)? Thank you in advance.

  5. Can you stlll get the arrowhead water deal tomorrow, Sunday?

    • Lyssa, the water deal runs trough the 22nd but the coupon expires the 15th. You’ll have to get 4packs at $3.59 each, use (2) $2/2Q and get the $5cat. Makes sense?

  6. jennifer says:

    Has anyone tried freezing the Tillamook cheese? I just got 2 blocks today with a raincheck that was expiring, but this is a better price than I paid today.

    • I’ve never tried it myself, this is just from what I’ve read. If you’re going to use it for cooking, it should be fine freezing. But if you try to cut it after freezing then thawing it, it will crumble.

      • I let mine thaw on the counter for about one hour or two and then put it in the fridge. It is usually about half frozen still and very cold when I put it in the fridge. When I put it in the fridge I have had awesome luck with being able to grate it or slice it and have it be just like it was never frozen. I have done this with multiple brands, including Tillamook.

      • I’ve done it. If you grate it first it will usually clump a little but breaks easily apart. If in block form it will crumble but hey, for a casserole, who cares!

      • Grate it before you freeze it and it will be fine!
        we do this all the time. If you leave it sealed in the loaf, it will stay in your fridge for a LONG time… months : ) remember cheese AGES…
        happy CHEESE gathering

    • I stock up and freeze it every time it’s on sale. We run it all through a salad shooter to grate it first and then put it in small ziplocks in the freezer. It works wonderfully and saves you time later!

    • Look at the expiration date on the cheese. They are usually so far out that you won’t need to freeze it!

    • Jennifer, I don’t freeze block cheese. It lasts a LONG time in the refrigerator if it is still in the original packaging. Once it’s opened it will spoil faster, but still I rarely lose cheese to spoilage. Even with my small family, we will easily consume 2 lbs of cheese before it’s spoil sas long as it’s wrapped and refrigerated.

      Just my two cents worth.

  7. for the powerade can i use the $1/2 coupons? it has a rite aid logo on it..will i be able to use it at fredmeyer?

    • Cheryl H says:

      did you try using this coupon? I have some as well and was hoping they would accept them!

    • I was wondering the same thing, anyone know if Freddy’s will take it?

    • If it is a manufacturer’s coupon they should take it.

    • Yvonne Bush says:

      this would probably work if it is a mfg coupon and does not say good only at Rite Aide

      • Cheryl H says:

        That’s what I was thinking too. I know I can use my Walgreen’s RR as well as catalinas from Smith’s and Albs. I’ll give it a try!!

    • I asked my FM customer service about the manufacturer coupons but they have another store name on them (ie: available at Rite Aid, Walmart, etc.) and they will not accept them. This came from the Grocery Manager.

  8. myssssss says:

    Towels are only $3.49 and dry quickly, all kind of colors, I am to use my senior discount on tuesday and snag some, also the flats of plants in Vancouver, Washington are only $9.99 for a full whee, they used to have more food items and dry goods, prices are soaring at freds unless you look carefully and only shop their founders day and back to school, Kohl’s has the towels they sell for about $3.99 on sale but one can always use their coupons with discounts it brings the price down to $3.50 or so sometimes less. One must be vigilant about dry good prices and food prices, I even notice Winco prices soaring but I always use coupons and get the good name brand stuff for little money, because I keep a list of what we need, and only buy that nothing more get in early and out with cash…happy mother’s day to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. So I have a question, why can’t you use the P&G $3/2 and the B1G1 for the pantene?

    • Yvonne Bush says:

      no you cannot use both these coupons together.

    • Because you can only use 1 manufactures coupon per item, where the bogo is your coupon for 1 item, the $3/2 would be the manufactures for both items. So if you tried to use both, one of your items would have 2 manufatures coupons on it. Does that help?

  10. How come when you go to print your shopping list, the red star is black?

  11. The Pirate Booty Coupon is NLA. :( But thanks so much for this list. I am SUPER excited to get my shopping on!

  12. MyrandaB says:

    Does anyone know how much the 7th generation laundry detergent is?

  13. The Pepsi Next at my FM had 1.00 off peelies on them!!!

  14. Felecia says:

    Quick ques: can you use the B1G1 free Ocean Spray printable for the juice, even though it says redeemable at Walmart (it doesn’t say “only redeemable”, just “redeemable”)? Thanks!!

    • YES. Fred Meyer will take a coupon that has another store’s name on it as long as it is a Manufacturer’s coupon. It must say “manufacturer coupon” on it.

      They will not take a store coupon from another store, however. (I.e. they will not take a coupon found in the Rite-Aid ad because this is a store coupon.)

  15. I went today and found OFF towlettes discount 1.79 with $1/1 coupon and OFF lanterns discount 3.19 each with a $2/2 stickie coupon on them. Also Delish dog treat discount 1.29 and had 75/1 coupon. I adore the discount table. Plus my free snapware….yeah Freddies. At regular price everything would be 25 I spent 6.

  16. Danielle says:

    I’m not seeing the nutrigrain coupon on the ecoupons at all… I can’t print out the printable one either. Are they expired or something?

  17. Can you tell me the bar code number for the corning dishes, the little ones for 3.99? Our store doesn’t have them, but I might be able to get them on a special order, and I did get a rain check. thanks
