Ralphs: 3/17 - 3/23/10

Note: This summary of deals is based on the ad I get in Los Angeles, where Ralphs stores double coupons up to $1 (one like coupon per transaction). I don't list all of the deals, only the good ones. If I missed any, please let us all know in the comments. You'll need a Ralphs Rewards card to get most of these deals, so I use the Rewards card price in this post and assume you have your card scanned with each transaction. In addition to the coupons listed, you can also add electronic coupons to your Ralphs Rewards card at these sites:,, Softcoin and Upromise. If you give Ralphs your email address, they may also send you emails with e-coupons that are exclusive to your card. And if you bring reuseable bags, Ralphs will give you 5 Rewards points for each bag used (though you may need to remind the cashier).

There's a coupon on page 5 for 2,000 Rewards points when you transfer a prescription to Ralphs pharmacy. That works out to a $20 coupon when you get your quarterly certificate, so if you'd get a little more money if you use the $25 Rite Aid transfer coupon that's in this week's RA ad or the $30 transfer coupon that was in last week's Vons circular. (I believe all Ralphs pharmacies accept competitor coupons.)

Make sure you play the Hit the Hoops Sweepstakes because everyone seems to win something. So far I've won a $5 store credit and a Kraft cheese cubes.
