Shopper's Food Warehouse May Triple Coupons Master Shopping List, May 14-17th

Homies - Looks like Shopper's Food Warehouse is gunning to keep couponers distracted from Bloom triple coupons this weekend. This coming Thursday through Sunday (May 14-17), all coupons up to $0.99 in value triple - same as Bloom's parameters. Even better - no limit on the number of coupons that you can use. So overall, you're probably better off investing your time into shopping at Shopper's (whose everyday prices are lower, anyway) - unless of course there is an item advertised as being on sale at Bloom that has a wicked matching coupon.

I have posted the matchups for the prices listed in the Shopper's Food Warehouse weekly ad below. Check back at this link for more matchups over time, including non-ad matchups. In the past, many nonsale items have also turned out to be free or pretty close to it after a tripled coupon.

We're going to try something new this time - which may enable us to build future matchup lists more quickly and streamline reader contributions to a more sleek, uniform format. Check out our published spreadsheet, sorted by greatest savings percentages first! (Items under $0.50 are also highlighted with green.) Email us your thoughts on the new format at redemptionunlimited at gmail dot com.

The Shopper's Food Warehouse May Triple Coupons Matchups Master Shopping List Can Be Seen Here.

**Note: if you are a blogger and wish to help your readers with our matchups, please link to this post and not directly to the list. Please do not copy or paste parts of this list without our written permission.**

The best deal from the ad? Free (overage?) Kraft BBQ sauce.

As for the $5 Catalina when you buy $20 deal, here's the very best scenario:

20 x $1 bottles of Hunt's (I'm not joking...someone out there has to have 20 inserts)
Use 20 x $0.20/1 coupons from the 05/10 SS, which will triple.

Pay $8, get $5 printable. Net $3 for 20 bottles of ketchup, or $0.15 each (85% discount). Hey, if you've got a big BBQ/grilling gathering coming, you can be the ketchup contributor. Otherwise, consider donating to your local food bank!

On a more practical note, if you have only one coupon from each insert, here's the best way to work it:

1 x Hunt's = $1.00
1 x Pam = $3.00
2 x HC Entree =$4.00
Other $12 worth: whatever you want, since you're out of coupon matchups.
We'll say:
6 x Orville = $12.00
Subtotal $20.00

Minus coupons:
$0.20/Hunt's (triple to $0.60)
$0.35/Pam (triple to $1.05)
$1/2 Healthy Choice
Post-Coupon Subtotal $17.35

Minus $5 Catalina, net $12.35 for two frozen meals, six boxes of popcorn, a bottle of ketchup, and a bottle of cooking spray.


As always, we fervently (truly, madly, deeply) welcome reader comments with matchups spotted in the field!

I, for one, LOVE the spreadsheet. Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Is this for all the DC area shoppers? I keep hearing that shoppers has triples but my store and my ad don't seem to have them. I live near the 7 corners store. Thanks!

Gina said...

Is the Buy $20, Get $5 Catalina in your ad? It's not in mine. Wonder if that deal is working in NoVA, too?

I don't have a blog so nothing to link back to, but wanted to list a couple of deals I just got at Shopper's.
No Yolk Egg Noodles are $2.09. I had a 75 cents off coupon so they were free plus overage.
I also used the 75 cents off coupon for Skintimate shavegel from last weekend's paper. It was priced at $2.49 so it ended up at 25 cents a can. Thanks!

Thanks for the deal comments, mrossi!

My ad says on the front page: Prices in this ad ONLY at Shoppers Northern Virginia Area stores. Like the three week marathon last month (in which my store didn't participate...but I'm not no...), this one might have coverage only in some NOVA/DC/MD stores. If I get word of a participating location list, I'll post it.

As for the Catalina deal, here is what my ad says on the bottom half of page 5:

"Save $5 on your next shopping trip when you buy $20 in participating products in a single transaction. Offer valid 05/14/09-05/20/09. Coupon generated at checkout."Under this blurb and the participating products there is a related link:

"Visit startmakingchoices.comm for affordable, better-for-you recipes."--- though after 5 minutes surfing this site, I can't find evidence of any pages describing the Catalina deal. :-\ I recommend calling the store nearest you if your ad doesn't have evidence of the deal (though my instincts tell me this deal should work anyway).

The triple coupons are definitely going on both in Baltimore and in College Park (MD suburb of DC).

Eldersburg & Westminster, MD are participating too! I'm planning a trip for later today. Hope to do a post later today.

Gina said...

Whoo hoo! The Buy $20, Get $5 OYNO Cat worked for me today, even though it wasn't in the ad. I'm typing up my run and will add it to your Mr. Linky this afternoon.

I am somewhat of a coupon newbie. I have a question... if a coupon says "Save $1.00 on two bottles." are you still able to use it on just one product and get 50 cents off the one? thanks.

Hi, Sarah,

In most instances, you must buy 2 items with $1/2 coupons; I've only heard of $1/2 coupons becoming "splittable" when a manager or cashier kindly decides to override and manually enter the discount.

The best time to use $1/2 coupons are during a double coupons sale which includes $1-valued coupons (Shopper's often does this as does Giant with Giant's dollar doubler coupons) - on an item that's BOGO (buy one get one free). This way, you get $2 off of two items, and the discount is off the price of one item - pretty much the maximum discount you can get with one $1/2 manufacturer coupon.

When in doubt, go with the text on the coupon, or if you're feeling bold, ask the customer service/manager before you start your shopping.

Hope this helps. Good luck in your couponing startup endeavors! :o)

I'm heading back over this evening to stock up on Healthy Choice. Here are some other matchups for your spreadsheet:

New York Garlic Bread (frozen) is $2.50. There was a .75 off last week 5/10, so .25 after tripling.
Luigi's Italian Ice, same price as above with coupon from 5/10.
Some of the White House Applesauce Cups are on clearance for $2.19. With the .60/2 coupon from 4/19, it's .39 each.
Nabisco Chewy Granola Bars are on the same coupon as those Planters Big Nut Bars (it's in the fine print). Those are free with the coupon from 4/19.

Thanks for the head's up about the broken link. I think I've fixed it now.

MomMom said...

Sorry I'm kind of late to post for this sale, but for future triple Q weeks:

Lysol toilet bowl cleaner $2.39 BC - $0.75x3 = $0.14 each
Shout Gel $2.89 BC - $0.75x3 = $0.64 each
Luigi's Italian Ice $2.89 BC - $0.75x3 = $0.64 per box

Is this an every-three months thing for Shoppers, or did it just happen to be in Nov 08, Feb 09, and May 09?
