Ralphs: 5/25 - 5/31/11

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. I find the electronic coupons to be unreliable when it comes to stacking them with paper coupons, so I assume they do not stack in the scenarios below. I don't print every coupon listed, so please verify amounts and quantities listed. 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).

At least some stores in LA County are still doubling multiple like coupons, including my own store. But until this seems to be a permanent state of affairs, I'm going to assume that only one like coupon will double per transaction.

There's an 8-hour sale on Thursday (5/26) from 1 to 9 p.m. that includes the following:

Red Cherries $1.88/lb

Lobster Tails $6.99 each (limit 3; 4 oz - they used to be 6 oz at this price!)

Fritos or Cheetos $1.25 (limit 4)

Minute Maid Drinks $0.79

12-pack cans or 6-pack bottles Pepsi, Diet Pepsi or Sierra Mist Natural $1.99 (limit 4)

    I can't find $0.75/1 Voskos Greek Yogurt Ralphs eCoupon. What is the category it under please?

  • At 5/25/11, 2:32 PM, Blogger Chief Family Officer said…

    @AC - If you don't see it, I'm guessing it's either been removed or is not available to you. I recommend the Facebook coupon in the meantime, and hopefully Red Plum will bring back the Voskos printables there too!

    I went to ralphs today & got a surprise Catalina. I bought 1 soft-soap, 1 colgate total, & 3 lady speedsticks. All of these were included in the 5 for $5 deal. I got all for free after coupons. So if any of you printed those lady speedstick coupons that were available a couple weeks ago u could get some free deodorant. The other 2 coupons were ones ralphs sent me. Anyway. I ended up getting a $3 Catalina from colgate palmolive. Not sure what triggered this but it was a nice surprise money maker! :)

    King's Hawaiian Sandwich Rolls $2

    If you happen to be on King's Hawaiian mailing list, they sent you a link for $2.00/1 coupon. (2 prints per computer)

  • At 5/25/11, 4:07 PM, Blogger Chief Family Officer said…

    @Corina - Wow! That IS a nice moneymaker, well done!

    @Vodreaux - The coupon I got was for $2/1 original round bread. Is yours for any product?

  • At 5/25/11, 5:09 PM, Blogger A C said…

    Thanks CFO.
    Also my Magnum eCoupon is only $1.00 on any (1) Magnum® Ice Cream (3-pack), not $2/1 Magnum Ice Cream Ralphs eCoupon.

    The Voskos facebook coupon is all gone! :(

  • At 5/25/11, 7:08 PM, Blogger Monica said…

    I don't have the Voskos in my ecoupons either. I'm having trouble with the Magnum coupon. I loaded it last week, for last week's sale but it didn't redeemed. I figure it was bc I used paper coupons too. However it was gone from my loaded. I re-loaded it yesterday and today, when I check the coupons loaded to my card, it's gone! It shows as available, though, but I had to re-reloaded. :s

    Gonna go to the store now and see if it works this time. BTW, it's the $2/1.

    Nicely done on the $3 Colgate/Palmolive Catalina. I heard about that Catalina in a forum but I don't have coupons for any of those products! Bumemr. :(

    @AC - Ecoupons are weird, as I think the offers vary slightly by shopper (and whatever their computer says about you). I also find (as Monica's experience demonstrates) that ecoupons are particularly unreliable at Ralphs.

    @Anon - Thanks for letting me know, I'll update the post.

    @Monica - If you can, get a screenshot of the coupon being loaded on your card. If it doesn't come off the next time, contact Ralphs customer service and let them know (and offer to email them the screenshot). I once bought a product only because it was free with the ecoupon, which didn't come off, and when I contacted customer service (called their toll-free number, I think), they took care of it. I don't remember exactly what they offered, but I think it was a credit to my card that did come off the next time I shopped there.

    I came across a coupon tablet at a CVS in Burbank on Monday that offered $2 in free soda when you purchased a Miller Lite 12-pack or larger. Here's how I plan to stack them this week:

    30-pack Coors, Budweiser, Miller, Tecate or Port Republic $15.99 each WYB 2
    If Miller Lite is included…
    Buy two 30-packs of Miller Lite at 15.99 each WYB 2 (4.4 cents per oz., stock-up price is 4.9 cents)
    use $2 off soda when you buy 12+ Miller Lites (use 2 tablet coupons)
    2-liter Pepsi, Diet Pepsi or Sierra Mist Natural $0.79 WYB 6 = $4.74 minus $4.00 in coupons = $0.74 for 6
    Get cheap beer below stock up price + each 2-liter costs $0.12. SCORE!

  • At 5/26/11, 3:14 PM, Blogger Heidi said…

    Some coupons for soda deals this week:

    $2/4 12 packs of Pepsi mfc from the Keil's flyer. Use with $1.99 8-hour sale for 4 packs for $6.

    Little Caesars has .75/1 any Sierra Mist Natural product. Use 6 to get 6 free 2L (1 cent overage).

    Also, there are still some IPs for $1/1 any Morningstar product:

  • At 5/26/11, 4:51 PM, Blogger Monica said…

    I contacted CS and they emailed me saying they'd let me know what they could do. I replied with a thank you. I got a reply back saying they would credit me for the $2 but didn't especify when/how.

    I also got an email from and they want a copy of my receipt, my Ralphs #, description of the coupon, price of the item, my goodness, my shoe size! LOL! I'll reply back bc if there's anything wrong with my account I'd love it fixed as I see now that some ecoupons might be worth it. :)

    I went in-store yesterday and I noted the prices of the meat and hot-dogs sale, here are the sale prices (showing 50% off) in case someone needs them:

    Tri-tip, $4.49
    T-bone $5.99
    Rib Eye $5.99
    New York $6.49
    Sirloin $3.99
    Hebrew national $2.99
    Oscar Mayer $1.99 and $2.99
    Farmer John $1.99 and $2.49
    Ball Prk $2.34, $2.74 and $2.99

    @Coupon Cal - That's a great deal. I think I need to go to CVS just to pick up coupons, lol!

    @Heidi - Thanks so much for the info!

    @Monica - If they do it the way they did it for me, your think the $2 credit will be loaded to your card the same way a pharmacy credit would be (I realize that only makes sense if you get your prescriptions filled at Ralphs and use coupons to get a credit). Bottom line, I would expect to see the $2 come off the next time you shop. Thank you so much for sharing the meat and hot dog prices with us!
