Cheap Starbucks coffee Shaw's & Safeway, et al? YMMV exp. unk.


  • 500 Club

    Thought I’d share what I’ve been buying since a friend in CO has been able to do deal at Safeway. Might be available in other sister stores.

    Starbucks has a box with 8 small cans of ground coffee. I’ve found it on clearance shelves and friend in CO has it on clearance at Safeway. RR here $9.99, 50% off makes them $4.99. There’s a $2 ip on coupons.com. Shaws also has $2 J4u Limit 1. Safeway didn’t have $2 J4u.
    There’s $2.50 back on iBotta. L5
    $4.99 - $2 mq - $2.50 iBotta = $0.49/box at Shaw’s

    RR $14.99 rang up $3.50 at Safeway - $2/1 ip and she earned $2.50 for ea. for a nice MM

    Warning: buy as many as you can (up to 5) the first time around. When iBotta resets the value drops to $1.

    This week SB coffee is on sale at Shaw’s (again) so 50% off $5.99 sale price will make them $2.99 - $2 mq get back $1 from iBotta.
    I’ve only seen Breakfast Blend and Pike Place. IDK if other blends are available.

    From Safeway:

    Had the J4U, thanks @my4mainecoons , will check it out.

    FYI, the J4U allows you to max out at 5 since it’s 4 like printables.

    Your post is a little confusing, is your bottom part referring to reg. bags of coffee? not quite following.

    @mistercheap If a J4u says L1 AFAIK if you buy 4 you will only get the J4u off of 1 item. Are you saying that if J4u is L1 and I buy 4 at once that the J4u will come off 4 times?

    re: the bottom of my post. It’s about sales items at Shaw’s/Safeway, et al. If widget brand coffee is on sale and you find a flavor of widget brand coffee on the clearance shelf the red sticker will have the regular price from which you would think you would get 50% off but in fact you will get 50% off of the sale price.

    Two weeks ago SB coffee (bags, kcups and the item in the OP) were on sale from RR $9.99 to sale price $5.99. I found bags of whole beans on the clearance shelf. They were marked 50% off with original price being $9.99. They rang up $2.99 (50% off of sale price of $5.99). There is a $1.25 (?) iBotta for bags of SB coffee making them net $1.79 ea. I posted about my adventure in the Coronavirus thread. Friend in CO found the item in OP when it was on sale for $6.99 and on the clearance shelf. So she paid $3.50 - $2/1 ip and earned $1.50 iBotta.

    No, I mean you can NOT use both an IP and J4U at Acme. It’s a one use digital. BUT since the IP policy is limit 4 like coupons, the IP’s and the digital allow you to get 5 on one order to max out on IBOTTA.

    @mistercheap AFAIK the coupon policy is 4 like that will double but if they’re not doubling there’s no limit. Also, sometimes the mq and J4u DD. It did when I bought Hellman’s several months ago. Had J4u and mq both come off. I can’t recall if they q’s were the same value but it was a nice surprise.

    the wording is on the coupons.com printout. read the fine print.

    That’s presuming you’re using a q.com q. When you said “BUT since the IP policy is limit 4 like coupons” I thought you were referring to the store policy.

    Shaw’s doubles valid paper manufacturers’ coupons that have a face value up to 99¢, not to exceed the value of the item. … No more than FOUR “like” (same UPC) paper coupons will be doubled per customer, per day. Any additional coupon(s) may be accepted at face value (not doubled) based upon product availability.

    The q on Q.com is new. When I started buying the item in the OP the ip did not exist so I was buying one at a time using just the J4u.

    eta: I rarely use ip’s so I hadn’t noticed the L4 on Q.com’s. Now I can’t even print from Q.com.
