Rainbow Foods, Copps, Pick ’n Save Shopping List 6/3 – 6/9/12

This content uses referral links. Read our disclosure policy for more info.

This deal has expired and may no longer be valid.

Once again, this Saturday, June 9, Rainbow Foods is offering a Double Double Daze  (I don’t see it advertised on Copps or Pick ‘n Save’s websites). That means you can get up to 10 coupons doubled per qualifying transaction. If you are new to shopping Double Daze, be sure to read Roundy’s (Rainbow Foods, Copps, and Pick ‘n Save’s) double coupon policy before you get started to understand all the restrictions of their double coupon promotion.

If you shop at Copps and your ad doesn’t match the items mentioned in this shopping list, then check out what we saw for sales last week.

Two things to remember about this list of deals. First, it does not include every sale-priced item that has a coupon. It only has those items whose final price is low enough for us to mention it. Second, it is a starting list: as we learn of more deals whose final price is low enough, we will update this list. Items that are added throughout the week will be noted as NEW. Items whose final price changes as a result of a new or modified coupon scenario will be noted as UPDATED. At least once this week we will send out a reminder to come back and check this list for the hottest new deals.

Your turn: What other deals did you find this week?


  1. Josh says

    Apparently (read this on another website) there is a sign at the west end Rainbow in St. Louis Park advertising Double Doubles Daze every Saturday through September 1st!

    Hope this is true and that all Rainbow locations will be included!

  2. Kay says

    Just a heads up.. Kikkoman coupons did not double for me.. they did print a $2 off although… I have seen this in past on deals advertised on coupon network… Is this something everyone else knew, and I was new to it??

    • Cassie says

      They didn't double for me either :( Any info on the coupons would be great…I was thinking about bringing my receipt to customer service and seeing if there was anything they could do about it…

      • Amy says

        She had to enter them manually for me as well. I did two orders with them. the first they doubled and the second they didn't, but I went to the service desk and they gave me money back.

  4. Sam says

    Hey! Just to let everyone know…..At Rainbow in Apple Valley, they said that they no longer carry Oxydol liquid laundry detergent. I've tried to get it the last couple weeks….no wonder! haha

    • Chris says

      Yea I think all the stores clearanced it out. It's been on the list a few weeks, I doubt any stores have it left anymore.

  5. Chris says

    Final price: ?? each after doubled coupon (price check, please)

    It looks like these are $3.29, so $.65 each after sale and doubled coupon

    • Chris says

      Well since the $1 coupon is no longer available, they'd just be $1.65 after the sale with no coupon :(

  7. Chris says

    The Kikkoman facebook coupon is no longer available, it's been replaced by a $1.75/3 printable instead.

  8. L says

    Many of the General Mills Cereal Coupons are no longer there. I was checking most of the higher than .50 each(alone or in joint) ones. I found enough for what I needed but just wanted to let someone know that some of the links are dead ends.

  9. Chris says

    Buy 8 Betty Crocker Hamburger, Tuna or Chicken Helper for $1.99 Each, Get $8 Off Instantly

    Use Rainbow coupon from flyer or Copps/Pick ‘n Save coupon from booklet to get sale price

  11. Jennifer says

    On Saturday I was looking for Craisins (5-6 oz.). I ended have to ask at the service desk where they have it. It was in the dry fruit aixle.

  12. Chris says

    Pillsbury Pancakes, Egg Scrambles, Grands Biscuit Sandwiches or Toaster Strudel or Scrambles – Buy 2, Get 1 Free

    **Look for specially marked boxes of Pillsbury Toaster Strudels with codes. Buy 3 boxes with codes and submit for $5 MIR here (http://strudelgrocerycash.pillsbury.com/)

    It looks like the Toaster Strudels are $2.58 at PnS and $2.95 at Rainbow. If you find the boxes with codes, it would amount to $.05/box at PnS and $.30/box at Rainbow after the B2G1 sale and the MIR.

  13. Jennifer says

    So Delicious Coconut Milk (32 oz.) $2.00

    Use $1/1 from 3/25, 4/22 or 5/20 Smart Source inserts

    • Chris says

      The $1/1 Split Remedy coupon I just posted should work with the store coupon from the flyer/booklet as well. The store coupon should be usable with the Unilever deal too.

      TRESemme Shampoo, Conditioner or Styling Products $2.98 (Limit 1)

      Use Rainbow coupon from ad or flyer or Copps/Pick ‘n Save coupon from booklet to get sale price

      Final price: $2.98 after coupon

      • Chris says

        Sorry I didn't click the button to print it before I posted LOL, it says the $1/1 Split Remedy coupon is no longer available so ignore that one.

  15. Chris says

  16. Chris says

    My slimfast couponsin 5/20 RP are $1/1. If you have these too (or if you buy coupons online), there's some good deals to be had on the Slimfast part of the Unilever Deal:

    Buy (5) Slim-Fast 100 Calorie Snack Bars @ $3.50 each.

    Use (5) $1/1 coupons from 5/20 RP.

    Final Price: $4.00 for all (or $1.33 each) after doubled coupon and the Unilever deal savings.

  17. Megan says

    Wouldn't this work for the P&G deal?

    Buy 4 Gillette Men's Good News disposable razors at $7.00 each (28.00 total)

    Use (2) BOGO Gillette Male Disposable Razor coupons from 6/3/12 P&G (14.00 off)

    Get $10.00 prepaid Visa by mail

    $1.00 each package after coupons and prepaid Visa

  18. Nancy says

    Did anyone get the catalina print that said "Buy any 1 Olay product, 1 covergirl product and 1 venus product between 6/3 and 6/16 and get $5.00 off on your future shopping trip"? Any good deals for this?

  19. Michelle says

    I have a $.75/1 Milkbite coupon from coupons dot com last month. It's not available anymore, but if anyone printed it last month they'd be $.90 each.

  20. Heather says

    If anyone gets any of the Bonus Box Tops print outs that they don't need/want, I would be happy to trade you coupons for them. We are going to be on vacation and I won't be able to get any bonus Box Tops this time. My kids' school does a contest twice a year to see which class can bring in the most Box Tops so I love the bonus print outs! You can email me at thlr2003 at gmail dot com.

  21. Chris says

    Mary – Yes the coupon will work! I read on facebook where someone asked Farm Rich whether or not the french toast sticks are considered a "snack" and Farm Rich responded saying the coupon can be used on ANY of their items – they consider all their products snack products! So YES! this coupon will work and we can get them for only $.38! Thats a great price :)

  22. ellen says

    I wonder if this will work since the .48 price for the hershey is a coupon

    Hershey’s Single Candy Bars or Breathsavers Wintergreen Mints $0.48 (Limit 8)

    Use in-ad Roundy’s coupon to get sale price

    Final price: $0.48 after coupon

    use b1g1 hershey bar mq. Cashier would enter .89 for the free one

    7.12 – 3.56 (mq) – in ad q = would probably end up as free.

    • Chris says

      That would work at my store yes! The manufacturer coupon would take off the sale price and not count the store coupon adjustment

  23. Drew says

    I did the deal last week and they didn't double for me. Service desk lady said it was because they dont double coupons if the price is less than twice the coupon value.

    I know this isn't always true, I've gotten better than free sometimes, as well as it just doubling up to the total price.

    For the kikkoman deal, I did get the $1 catalina for buying two, which than doubled or the next transaction, so i still came out ahead on the deal.

  24. Chris says

    This reminded me of the Old Orchard coupon and whether or not it is good for lemonade too (as opposed to just 100% juice concentrates).

    I sent an email to Old Orchard and got a response from Kevin Miller, VP of Marketing. He said the coupon CAN be used on lemonade, and ANY other of their frozen concentrate products.

    So the coupon can be used on Lemonade and this deal should work!

    Old Orchard Lemonade (12 oz. Frozen Concentrate) $0.68 (Limit 1)

    Use Rainbow coupon from flyer to get sale price

    Final price: $0.68 after coupon

    Plus, buy 4 (2nd 3rd and 4th will be $1.00) and use $1/4 Old Orchard Frozen Juice Concentrates printable (http://oldorchard.com/promotions/#!/show/offers/juice-coupons).
    Final Price: $.42 each wyb 4 after doubled coupon.

  25. Sarah says

    Gillette or Secret Clinical Deodorant $7.00

    Sale price, no coupon needed

    Final price: $7.00

    $1/1 coupon in the PG 6/3

    • Chris says

      Oh you know what, the Eggo price would be better if you do not buy it during the 3-day sale and buy it on double coupon days instead. That can added to the regular weekly list too:

      Eggo Frozen Waffles/Pancakes, $2.00

      Use $.75/2 from 5/6 RP

      Final Price: $1.25 each after doubled coupon.

      • Chris says

        I don't see it now – I could have sworn I saw it earlier when I posted (because I looked at it and wanted to get the wording/size right) :(

  26. Chris says

    **UPDATED** Hershey’s Single Candy Bars or Breathsavers Wintergreen Mints $0.48 (Limit 8)

    Use in-ad Roundy’s coupon to get sale price

    Plus, buy 2 and use Buy 1 Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, Get 1 Hershey’s Air Delight Aerated Milk Chocolate Bar Free (if included)

    Final price: $0.24 each after coupons

    (Thanks, Ellen!)

    There's also $.25/1 Monopoly store coupons for the Hershey's bars. If you don't make it during the 3-day sale, and if you have the monopoly coupons, you should still be able to buy 2, use the B1G1 manufacturer's coupon, and use two monopoly coupons to get them for about the same price as the 3-day sale price.

  27. Chris says

    Sara Lee bread is still on sale for $1.99 this week, so if you have or acquire the $1/1 coupons from 4/15 SS, they are free after doubled coupon!

  28. Chris says

    Mentos UP2U Multipack Gum (3 pk.) $1.98 (Limit 8)

    Use Rainbow coupon from ad or flyer or Copps/Pick ‘n Save coupon from booklet to get sale price

    Plus, buy 2 and use $1/2 from 6/3 Smart Source insert

    Final price: $0.98 each after coupon and doubled coupon ($0.33/pack)

    *The Mentos UP2U Coupons say Do Not Double

    The would be $1.48 each after coupon and coupon ($.49/pack)

    • Chris says


      Mentos UP2U Gum Single Packs, 2/$2.

      Use $1/2 Mentos Gum UP2U Packs from 6/3 RP.

      Final Price: $.50 each after coupon ($.50/pack)

  29. Melissa W. says

    Just a heads up. Savage Rainbow had some flavors of Ham. Helper on clearance for 99 cents. I don't think that they were included in the buy 8 deal, but if you only wanted to buy 3 you could get the clearance ones for around the same price.

  30. Chris says

    Ack! When I do my monopoly tickets, I take a little stack and use a scissors to cut them on the two sides and bottom, rather than tearing them since it saves time, and throw away the side pieces. I just realized that one of the side pieces has two more monopoly pieces! I've only been collecting 2 from each game ticket and throwing the other 2 away! There should be 4 monopoly pieces per game ticket. FYI, in case someone else missed that too/

  31. Saff says

    I came up with a variation on your idea. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Buy 2 Gillette Good News Disposable Razors for $7.00 each ($14)

    Buy 3 Tampax Pearl for $4 each ($12)

    $26 total

    Use one Buy 1 Gillette Male Disposable Razor, Get 1 Free from 6/3 P&G insert (-$7)

    Use three $1/1 tampax Q from 6/3 P&G insert (dbld -$6)

    Spend $13 after coupons, then submit for $10 mail-in rebate

    Final price: $3.00 total after coupons and rebate (.60 each)

  32. Laura says

    So Delicious Coconut Milk (32 oz.) $2.00

    Use $1/1 So Delicious Dairy Free Product printable (Facebook offer)- is over

    • Chris says

      Louisiana Fish Fry Batter Mixes for Fish Chicken or Vegetables, $1.59-$1.69

      Use $1/2 Louisiana Fish Fry Breadings from 3/4 SS Insert.

      Final Price: As low as $.59 after doubled coupon.

  33. Chris says

    Nexcare Bandages, $1.99 (reg $2.49)

    Use $.55/1 from 5/6 or from 6/3 SS Inserts

    Final Price: $.89 after doubled coupon.

    • Chris says

      At one of the two stores I shop, I always find a single page flyer at the service desk. It's not part of the regular weekly flyer & I never see this one on the website. And I only find it at the one store. But it does have a $.55/1 Any Nexcare Product manufacturer coupon in it this week, exp 7/31.

      • Chris says

        Actually quite a few of the deals I've been posting every week I find from this one-page flyer in my store. It's a PnS flyer I only find at one store, but the items on sale in the flyer are also on sale at the other stores too (Rainbow) they're just not advertised in the regular weekly flyer and not listed online (unless you search inventory for a particular item).

        If anyone from a Rainbow has a store with one of these one-page in-store only flyers at the service desk too, you should check it and post any good deals. I suspect there's a Rainbow version of the flyer available somewhere. I'm curious if its a similar flyer, or another set of undadvertised sale items.

  34. Chris says

    Gerber Juice 32 oz, $1.98 (reg $2.49)

    Use $.85/2 printable (couponnetwork.com)

    Final Price: $1.13 after doubled coupon

  35. Chris says

    Pepto Bismol $2.50 (reg $3.99-$4.19)

    Use $.50/1 Pepto coupon from 6/3 P&G Insert.

    Final Price: $1.50 after doubled coupon.

  36. Chris says

    Met-Rx Protein Bars, $2.00 (reg $2.69)

    Use $2/2 Met-Rx Big 100 Bars (from 6/3 RP Insert) or $2/2 Met-Rx Big 100 Bars (redplum.com) or $2/2 Met-Rx Protein Plus Bars (redplum.com).

    Final Price: $1.00 each after coupon.

  37. Jill Pearson says

    i found a $1/2 coupon for lean cuisine. Can't remember were in the world i printed it from though!

  38. Chris says

    Pagoda Express Microwaveable Entrees $2.50

    Use $1/1 Pagoda Express egg rolls, appetizers, or entrees, SS 4/15

    Final Price: $.50 after doubled coupon.

    • Chris says

      Oops sorry – the Barber Foods coupon is $1/2 not $1/1, which would make them $2.99 after doubled coupon.

  39. Chris says

    Ball Park Franks 14-16 oz, $2.00 (reg $3.49)

    Use $1/2, $.75/2 or $1/3 Ball Park Franks from 6/3 RP Insert.

    Final Price: As low as $1.00 after doubled coupon.

  40. Chris says

    Maybe something like this:

    Gillette Venus Razors or Refills, $8.49

    CoverGirl Beauty Tools, $3.19 (est price)

    Olay Bar Soap 2pk, $3.49

    Use Free Olay bar, body wash or in shower body lotion wyb Gillette Venus refill from 6/3 P&G Insert.

    Use $1/1 CoverGirl Product from 6/3 P&G Insert.

    Spend $9.68 after doubled coupons, get $5.00 off your next shopping trip

    Final Price: $4.68 for all three items.

  41. Chris says

    I don't know if this will work, but if both deals work at the same time (the $5 Catalina for buying Venus/CoverGirl/Olay, and the $10 visa card for buying $25 in P&G products), maybe something like this would work:

    Buy (2) Gillette Good News Disposable Razors for $7.00 each

    Buy (1) Gillette Venus Razors or Refills, $8.49

    Buy (1) CoverGirl Beauty Tools, $3.19 (est price)

    Buy (1) Olay Bar Soap 2pk, $3.49

    Use (1) Buy 1 Gillette Male Disposable Razor, Get 1 Free from 6/3 P&G insert

    Use (1) Free Olay bar, body wash or in shower body lotion wyb Gillette Venus refill from 6/3 P&G Insert.

    Use (1) $1/1 CoverGirl Product from 6/3 P&G Insert.

    Spend $16.98 after coupons, get back a $5 catalina for buying Venus/CoverGirl/Olay products, get back a $10 Visa card for the P&G promotion.

    Final price: $1.98 for everything???

    Seems a little too cheap to work…

  42. Chris says

    The free Olay Bar Bodywash or Shower lotion coupon can be used on something up to $7.99 max value. I'd probably go with the bodywash or lotions instead of the 2pk bar soap.

  43. Chris says

    Here's one to add to the P&G promotion

    Gillette Venus Razors or Refills, $8.49

    Use: Free Olay bar, body wash or in shower body lotion (max $7.99) wyb Gillette Venus refill from 6/3 P&G Insert.

      • AsUntoTheLord says

        I was curious also if the Venus were included. Isn't there a B1G1 free for the disposables also out there? I need some and was going to try the deal at CVS, but would prefer to go to PNS if they are included. Can someone post if they find out?

      • Chris says

        It's hard to tell from the flyer. Only a few items are listed with prices, but the fine print lists a rather large number of participating brands and gillette is on there. Would have to verify in-store.

      • Chris says

        I don't see a little tag in my store for the Gillette Venus – I'm thinking they are probably NOT included in the $25 P&G promotion.

        • Chris says

          But then again, I'm not sure. The add lists many participating brands, quite a few of them aren't specifically listed in the ad. I looked at the Pepto and Pantene (since they were in the list of participating brands) and did not find any shelf tags in the store for those either.

  44. Chris says

    I'm not sure about the price of CoverGirl items or the Olay bodywash/lotion. But if you can do both deals together at the same time – a $5 catalina for buying Venus/CoverGirl/Olay and the $10 Visa card for the P&G promotion, that would most likely make for a super good deal!

    • Chris says

      The Olay Bodywash is about $4.19-$4.99.

      The Olay Lotions are about $5.59.

      The CoverGirl small beauty tools are $2.99 (emery boards, nail clippers)

  45. Chris says

    Coffee-mate Flavored Creamer (16 oz.) $2.00

    Buy 1 and use $0.50/1 from 4/29 Smart Source insert or $1/1 Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss Coffee Creamer printable (Facebook offer) (no longer available) or

    Use $1/1 Cascadian Farms Cereal printable (coupons.com)

    Final Price: $1.00 after doubled coupons.

  48. Chris says

    Milo’s Kitchen Dog Treats…

    There's a Catalina deal advertised on couponnetwork.com

    Save $1.50 in future savings when you buy one or more Milo's Kitchen® Dog Snacks 10 oz or larger.

    With the available coupons, that would make these "better than free"!

    • Chris says

      Watch the sizes on the catalina deal vs. the coupons vs. the sale. The store coupon (I don't think) is good on the 10oz+ Milos, only the smaller size.

      However, with the $2/1 or $1.25/1 printables, along with the Catalina deal, would up to $3 off the 10oz+ sizes, which may be a good deal also.

      • Chris says

        Sorry i mistyped, if you use the $2/1 coupon and the $1.50 catalina, it would take up to $3.50 off the 10oz+ sizes.

        • mary says

          If someone can confirm a price for the 10 oz.+ sizes we can add this to the list if it's a good deal.

          • Kris E says

            What's the size restricton on the $1/1 5/13 RP insert coupon?

            Also, looked yesterday at the cleaning in-store specials… lots of deals coming from there but haven't figured that out either. Have to go to work, might get to it tonight hopefully. Feel free Chris :)

            I know the Mr Clean solution is on sale again and there's a Mr Clean from home mailer. Soft Scrub was on sale. 2.79 maybe?

          • Chris says

            I'll check on the milo's 10oz price today and whether or not those gillette venus are included in the promo, I'm heading to the store this afternoon to grab some chicken during the 3day sale yet.

          • Chris says

            And I'll check the olay & covergirl prices too while I'm there. I have to vote today anyways for a governor, and its only 2 or 3 blocks from my PnS.

          • Chris says

            Milk Bone or Milo’s Kitchen Dog Treats (3-26 oz.) $1.88 (Limit 1)

            Use Rainbow coupon from flyer or Copps/Pick ‘n Save coupon from booklet to get sale price

            The Milo's included in the store coupon sale are the smaller 3oz sizes ($2.00 on sale or $1.88 with the store coupon).

            The 10oz Milo's aren't included for that price, so the 10oz printable coupon can come off that deal – it won't work.

            The 10oz Milos are $8.99 not on sale. There is a $2.00 coupon and a $1.50 catalina.

    • Chris says

      I see it at my PnS store and at a rainbow (I happen to be looking in Woodbury at the moment). Maybe it varies by store.

  49. Jackie says

    I have had instant winners for a pack of marshmallows and a pack of coffee. Nothing big but they make good fillers to get to my $25.

  50. Sarah S. says

    I won a free can of cat food, which was kind of amusing since my husband and I are really not fans of cats…I'll probably use it as a filler and donate it.

    • kimm says

      I think I won $100 Grocery Card….Just have to stop by the store with my game card and have it confirmed. Just when I was thinking that I shouldn't bother playing because I never win anything! :-)

      • Jennifer K says

        Congrats Kimm! I was feeling that way this year as well but decided why not and have put the time into it. I'm about 1 piece away for a lot of the prices so I hope I'll get lucky

        • Thao says

          Last year I won $1 instantly and then the $5 prize. So far I have received 8 instant wins for 2 additional play tickets (total of 16 free tickets). I am close to a few so hopefully I will get lucky too!

  51. heidi says

    Gold n plump chicken breast 2 for 8 dollars -1 from 4/29 smart source brings it down to 2.00 a pack after doubled

  52. melissa says

    Motts applesauce is 2/$4 and we got a coupon that was .55 Other locations got a higher amount. After double, they are just .90

  53. AsUntoTheLord says

    These coupons can also be added to deals listed above (some in the ongoing):

    8th Continent Soymilk, ½ gallon, $1/1 – 6/3 RP – Exp. 12/31/12

    Emerald Breakfast on the Go product 7.5 oz or larger – $1/1 – 5/6 RP – Exp. 6/17/12

    • melissa says

      **NEW** ***Deal idea #1***

      Buy 5 Slim-Fast 100 Calorie Snack Bars (6 pk.) for $3.50 each

      Use five $1/1 from 5/20 Red Plum insert

      Spend $7.50 after doubled coupons, save $5 instantly with Roundy’s Reward card

      Final price: $0.50 each after doubled coupons and instant savings.

      (Thanks, Chris!)

      The snack bars say 2 per shopping trip

      • Chris says

        oh no! I didn't catch that sorry. Would have to modify the deal a bit and use 2 of each of the slimfast coupons for the same transaction. I think it would still came out to the same price, just have to change the transactions a bit:

        Buy (2) Slim-Fast 100 Calorie Snack Bars for $3.50 each

        Buy (2) Slim-Fast Shakes (4 pk.) and Meal Bars (5 pk.) for $5.00 each

        Use (2) $1/1 Slim-Fast Shakes Multipack from 5/20 RP Insert

        Use (2) $1/1 Slim-Fast Meal Bar or Snack Bar from 5/20 RP Insert.

        Spend $9.00 after doubled coupons, save $5 instantly = $4.00

        Or we can still do this one, just use some of each coupon and get some of each Meal bars and the Shakes:

        Buy (3) Slim-Fast Shakes (4 pk.) and Meal Bars (5 pk.) for $5.00 each

        Use (1 or 2) $1/1 Slim-Fast Shakes Multipack from 5/20 RP Insert

        Use (1 or 2) $1/1 Slim-Fast Meal Bar or Snack Bar from 5/20 RP Insert.

        Spend $ 9 after doubled coupons, save $5 instantly = $4.00

        • melissa says

          I have 2 of the RP qs and 1 that I got in the mail from a sample. The sample QQ says any slim-fast product, so they are not identical. Could I use all three and buy 3 meal bars. Total $15 $9 after doubled. I have a question about the "instant" $$5. 00 The ad says that a coupons will be printed on the receipt. So, it doesn't sound like it takes $5 off of your total instantly.

          • mary says

            Yeah, the wording is confusing. When someone tries the deal, please leave a comment so we know if you got $5 instantly or a coupon off a future purchase. It makes it seem like you "instantly" get your $5 coupon. :)

  54. Jill Pearson says

    I called about the Dove deal, and she scaned $15 worth and she said it's instant at ccheck out!! She said maybe well be lucky at there be a cat coupon also :)

  55. says

    Has anyone found out if the Dove deal with the $1/1 from this weeks insert will work? I need some deodorant so I was hoping it would work! I see that the $5 off comes off instantly… YAY!

  56. Chris says

    Dole 100% Juice, 59oz Carton, $2.79 (reg $3.55)

    Use: $1/1 Dole 100% juice 59oz (from 5/13 RP).

    Final Price: $.79 after doubled coupon.

  57. Chris says

    Cascade Rinse Aid, $2.89 (reg $3.29)

    Use $1/1 Cascade Rinse Aid from 6/3 P&G Insert.

    Final Price: $.89 after doubled coupon

  58. Chris says

    Here's one from last week's list that should still be good – its still marked down but the price varies by store so double-check your store's price online.

    Kraft Sandwich Shop Mayo Squeeze Bottle $1.77-$2.94 (price varies by store)

    Use $0.55/1 or $1/2 or $0.35/1 from 5/13 Smart Source insert (exp 6/10)

    Final price: As low as $0.67 after doubled coupon

  59. Chris says

    Gedney Pickles 32oz, $3.20-$3.57 (prices vary by variety & store)

    Use: $.75/1 Gedney coupon from 5/13 RP Insert.

    Final Price: $1.70 after doubled coupon

    Gedney Pickles 16oz, $1.89-$2.75 (prices vary by variety & store)

    Use $.75/1 Gedney coupon from 5/13 RP Insert.

    Final Price: As low as $.39 after doubled coupon

    *These prices vary quite a bit from what I'm seeing online, so depending what you find in-store the larger jar or the smaller jar may be a better value.

    And I found this on their facebook!

    Q: What do you call a pickle you buy at a great price?

    A: A Sweet Dill!

    • Chris says

      I believe the $.75/1 coupon is good on Any Gedney Pickle Product, so it may work on the Dill Relish or other varieties too.

  60. Chris says

    Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce (28 oz.) $2.50

    Use $0.75/1 Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce 28 oz.+ printable (Facebook offer)

    Final price: $1.00 after doubled coupon

    Keep an eye out for bottles that are priced at $1.79, but are 50% more "bonus" sized bottles (they're 28oz with the "bonus"). With the coupon, that would bring those bonus bottles to only $.29 each. I found them last week at my store on a large summer/grilling item display back near deli/meats, rather than on the regular shelf.

    • Chris says

      Eclipse Gum 3 packs $2.89

      Orbit Gum 3 packs $3.09

      Use $1/1 Eclipse or Orbit White Gum 3 packs printable (coupons.com).

      Final Price: As low as $.89 after doubled coupon ($.30/pack)

    Marie Callender's Fruit Pies $2.00 (reg $2.49)

    Use $1/2 printable on coupons.com

    Final Price: $1.00 each wyb 2 after doubled coupon.

    *I see these on sale at Rainbow, but not at PnS this time!

  63. Chris says

    Gold Bond Anti-Itch Cream, $2.79-$3.29 (prices vary by store).

    Use $1/1 Gold Bond Lotion or Cream from 6/3 SS Insert.

    Final Price: As low as $.79 after doubled coupon.

  64. Chris says

    Gillette Fusion Shaving Gel, $3.00 (reg $4.69)

    Use $1/1 Gillette Fusion Shave Prep from 6/3 P&G Insert

    Final Price: $1.00 after doubled coupons.

  65. Ruth says

    The Natural Bliss coupon .55/1 coupon is now unavailable. However, I found a $1/2 on the krazycouponlady site…links to Walmart, but it is a manufacturer's coupon. Final price would then be $1.00 each after doubled coupon.

  66. Chris says

    Jimmy Dean's Breakfast Bowls, $2.69 (prices may vary)

    Use: $1/1 printable on coupons.com

    Final Price: $.69 after doubled coupon.

      • Chris says

        The Jimmy Dean's Breakfast Bowls are $2.65 (reg $2.69-$2.75) at my store. If anyone has the $1/1 coupon in your zip, it would be a $.65-$.75 after doubled coupon, give or take. They can't be too much more than that, they're only $1.99ish at Walmart.

        • Chris says

          The Jimmy Dean's Delights are priced the same also, and there's a $1/1 manuf coupon on Target's site.

        • Chris says

          The Jimmy Dean are only reduced a few cents (or not on sale at Rainbow from what it looks) but if you need more coupons to double, or need some breakfast food (like we did – I can't wait for the next sale) it's not a bad price after doubled coupon.

  67. Shelly says

    Carrie, you mention mangoes being on sale at Aldi for 39 cents this week, but are they champagne (Altaulfo) mangoes like the ones on sale at Rainbow??? I am not an Aldi shopper, but I would probably go out there for that price. Champagne mangoes are one of my favorite things in the whole world, and Costco is usually the best price – but .39 would be worthwhile. Could you clarify that? There is hardly any comparison to a "regular" mango which I almost always purchase frozen in chunks at TJ's. Thanks so much!!!

  68. Chris says

    Dole 100% Juice (59 oz.) $2.79

    Use $1/1 from 5/13 Red Plum insert (we did not get this coupon in Minneapolis)

    Final price: $0.79 after doubled coupon

    **Plus look for $.25/1 Monopoly store coupon to make these as low as $.54!

  69. Amanda says

    I did the GM cereal deal today at Rainbow…watch for cinnamon toast crunch boxes with $1 off 1 box. It only doubled to $1.83 I think because the box was $3.33 – $1.50 deducted for the save $9 on 6…but still made it free!

  70. Chris says

    Eclipse Gum (3 pk.) $2.89

    Orbit Gum (3 pk.) $3.09

    Use $1/1 Eclipse or Orbit White Gum 3 packs printable

    Final price: As low as $0.89 after doubled coupon ($.30/pk.)

    **Plus look for $.25/1 Monopoly store coupon to make these as low as $.64

  71. Shelly says

    Feeling crazy – but am I missing the So Delicious $1/1 coupons mentioned in the On-going deals?? I was so excited to get the creamer for that price. The SS from 3/25, 4/22, 5/20 are all mentioned, but I can't find it in any of them. Maybe not in the Minneapolis?

  72. Chris says

    Dannon Oikos Yogurt (5.3 oz.) $1.00

    Buy 2 and use $0.50/2 from 5/20 Smart Source insert or $0.50/2 Dannon Oikos Yogurt printable

    • Chris says

      I didn't find them either at my store… LOL.

      I just hopped around a couple rainbows and don't see them… We should take it off the list.

      • mary says

        Funny that Rainbow has it listed on their website but they don't carry it. I removed it from the list.

  75. Christina says

    Is that listed in the ad or an unadvertised price? My Rainbow will still double the coupon and we need chicken so good deal for me!

  76. Kelly says

    Mangoes may be cheaper at Aldi, but they are the regular ones. Champagne mangoes are AMAZING! This is pretty spendy, though. Sam's Club has 14 of them for around $7.00.

  77. Chris says

    Brawny Paper Towels (1 roll) $1.99

    Brawny Paper Towels (3 roll) $4.29

    Brawny Paper Towels (6 roll) $6.48

    Use $1/1 Brawny Paper Towels printable (Facebook offer)

    Final price: As low as free after doubled coupon

    *The facebook coupon has changed now to include a size restriction "6 roll or larger". If you printed it previously (without the size restriction) you can still get a free single roll.

    Also the 6-roll package is not on sale or marked down this week, so it can probably just be removed from the list.

  78. Jackie says

    The smaller boxes of Kix are $2.89 and included in the buy 6 get $9.00 off. There is $.75 off one box on coupons.com so depending on how many computers you have access to it could make for a great deal.

    6 – Kix Cereal $2.89 x 6 = $17.34

    – $9.00 off


    Use 6 $.75 off one coupons (doubled)

    =FREE plus a coupon for a free gallon of milk and a dozen eggs

      • Amanda says

        The .75 coupon will only double up to $1.39 as opposed to $1.50 since you get $1.50 deducted per box making them $1.39 each, then the 0.75 doubles to $1.39 making it free. Just wanted to be sure you knew that.

        • Shelly says

          My 2 Kix coupons both doubled to $1.50; it seems to really depend upon the Rainbow you shop out.

  79. Chris says

    Gedney Pickles (32 oz.) $3.20-$3.57 (prices vary by variety & store)

    Use $0.75/1 from 5/13 Red Plum insert

    Final price: $1.70 after doubled coupon

    **These coupons say not subject to doubling.

    • Chris says

      I did find Gedney Dill Relish in my store for $1.39 – I see it on Rainbow for $1.24. When you search for it (search for just "Gedney"), it appears on sale, but doesn't have the brand name listed – that's the Gedney relish!

      Gedney Dill Relish ($1.24-$1.39)

      Use: $.75/1 from 5/13 RP Insert (coupon says no doubling)

      Final Price: As low as $.49 after coupon.

  80. Chris says

    The regular DeLallo whole wheat pastas are about $3.89 reg price, so $1.89 after doubled coupons. I rarely ever see DeLallo on sale (I can't remember the last time) and coupons are pretty rare too.

  81. Chris says

    Village Hearth Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns $1.99

    Use Village Hearth Premium Buns $0.55/1from 5/20 Smart Source insert (exp 7/31) or $.55/1 Village Hearth printable

    Final price: $0.89 after doubled coupon

    **The printable coupon is good on bread only; the SS coupon is good for buns only. But, I did find Village Hearth Cottage bread for the same $1.99 price at my store (even though it wasn't listed online at the price)

  82. Sarah says

    Both the rainbows I went to were wiped out of the Mrs T. figures!! Will have to try again on Saturday-hopefully they will have some in stock then.

  83. Chris says

    I was going to try and post back the result – since I posted the idea, but all the razors with the b1g1 coupons were already sold out at my store by the time I got there, so I couldn't give it a shot.

  84. says

    Kay (and all) – I'm wondering if the Kikkoman deals print with the new barcode and there's something in the coding of that barcode that keeps it from doubling. I don't have one in front of me to check.

  85. Chris says

    Farm Rich coupon on coupons.com reset for me. I might have printed it at the end of May – so if you did too you may be able to print two more.

  86. tb says

    I am new so I thought I would ask you pros. I am trying to get to my 25 total. I want to do the cereal deal. can I use self price of 6 lucky charms @3.69 = 22.14 or sale with the instant $9.00 off 3.69=22.14 – 9.00 = 13.14 ??? I shop at lakeville and apple valley. Thank you for all your help..

    • alesha h says

      You will NOT get 2 coupons for eggs and milk. The 9.00 will come off on each, but only ONE set of the free coupons will be there. :)

      • melissa says

        You can go to customer service and they will write you are rain check coupon for the eggs and milk. I did this for milk last week.

      • mary says

        With G Mills I have almost aways run 2 or more sets in 1 order, and ALWAYS got 2 milk 2 eggs. I like to take advantage of the exstra 100 points, so I will even run 18 on Sat to get it, and will get 3milk and 3 eggs, no problem.

    • Chris says

      I saw this Mrs. T's coupon the other day – it's only good on the whole grain product which are not carried in MN or WI yet.

    • Brock says

      I wonder if those will work on the regular ones, since I don't think my store carries the whole grain variety, which is what the coupon is for.

      • Chris says

        I think we all know they'll "work", but we shouldn't be using it on the regular ones. Facebook and the coupon is clear they're good only on the whole grain variety which is being rolled out only to the select cities listed on facebook.

        • AsUntoTheLord says

          So excited to see they will have a whole grain! I was going to try and make some myself, but sheesh…too much effort! LOL I hope it comes to WI soon! I printed the coupon anyhow, in case it isn't available when it does come. It doesn't expire until 7/31 so we'll see. :-)

  87. Amy says

    Does anyone know if the Red Baron pizzas that are 3/$12 include the "Baron's Best"? There is a coupon on Coupons.com for $1/1 Red Baron Baron's best pizza.

    • Chris says

      I don't believe so – the "Baron's Best" pizzas are the pan-style, larger 26-30oz pizzas. But they are showing up on sale for $5.99 (reg $7.19) from what I see. With the doubled coupon, they'd be the same price as the smaller ones on sale for 3/$12.

  89. Lyz says

    I am new to shopping the double double days at rainbow and have a quick question: When I'm trying to get my totals to $25 do i calculate after the sale? ex) free ice cream with the Mrs. T's product, does the ioce cream count towards my purchase total? Thank you

    • says

      Lyz – Your $25 price is calculated BEFORE manufacturer's coupons, but AFTER any store coupons. The other caveat is that the full price of the item is what's counted toward the $25 NOT the sale price (technically it is the highest price listed on the tag hanging from the shelf that is counted toward the $25). Hope that helps!

    1. Does anyone know what type of Chex cereals are included in the sale?

    2. Does anyone know if I can get the Rainbow coupon booklet at customer service?

    I won a free container of Oikos Greek Yogurt instantly. I'm not a big fan of Greek yogurt itself, but I will use it to some yummy raita.

  92. Michelle R. says

    I shop at a Madison, WI Copps, and they recently changed how they calculate the $25 minimum. They calculate on the sale price, not the highest price. So….if something has a regular price of $3, and it's on sale for $2. you have a $1/1 coupon that's doubled, so you get it free. $2 would be the amount that's added to your total to get to the $25. I have confirmed their registers do this, because I ran into a challenge getting to my coupons to double, before I realized the change. So….it may be worthwhile for you to ask your customer service desk, to clarify for your particular store.

    The Sierra Mist coupon printed different for me. It does not have the bar code starting at 5. Anyone know if this will be double?


  94. Mel says

    If you click on the link at the very top of this post, Roundy’s (Rainbow Foods, Copps, and Pick ‘n Save’s) double coupon policy , the PYD staff explains it pretty well. As you coupon more, you'll find that Roundy's cashiers sometimes enforce correct policies and over-ride registers (they'll delete the doubled coupon value for either for a coupon that says DND or for not reaching the $25 threshold after all sale prices and discounts are taken off) and sometimes they will bend policies in your favor (like taking coupons up to a week expired or giving you the maximum value of the milk coupons that are over the amount of the milk). Every store and cashier will vary. I have seen comments on here that Apple Valley was pretty strict with coupon policies but the 6-8 times I went to that one, they were very nice and I had no issues following deals that were listed here. Just keep realistic expectations based on the time you can spend couponing and take time to really understand the coupon and sale policies so you can follow all of the rules and not get disappointed turned down at the register.

      I would also just give some advice to those that are new to couponing. It's kind of confusing and baffling at first. it's best to not take definitive answers to questions about shelf vs. sale price; coupons doubling to the full amount if it causes an overage; coupons doubling even when they say "do not double" etc. These are all things that seem to really vary by individual Rainbow. And then they can vary by cashiers within the particular Rainbow store you're shopping. My Rainbow seems to have always been very generous with coupon policies. I never paid any attention to the "do not double" wording because they always doubled. They evidently went by shelf price and as recently as Wednesday, I ended up with an overage on something. But, occasionally, a cashier overrides the automated system and keeps something from doubling. Overrides the system to give only the exact amount of milk on the G/M free milk coupon (only had that happen once), etc etc. So just be prepared to submit to the individual stores and keep in mind they certainly have the right to override and not double coupons, not give overages and give the exact amount of the milk rather than the $3.50. It gets much easier after you've been doing this for a month or two! And, you just get to know our specific store and the policies they generally follow.

  95. Dee says

    The $25 price can be counted before manufacture coupon, and before store coupons too! Just hand the manufacture coupons first so they double, and then the store coupons last :)

    Plus then the manufacture coupons will double to sale price, and if the coupon is for a lesser amount it will still deduct the value of the coupon, and you may get overage that way. If you do it the reverse way (store coupons first, then manufacture coupons) the manufacture coupons will double to the coupon price instead of the sale price, with no overage.

    I don't see anything in the store policy indicating coupons must be handed in a particular order, so this is the way I do it.

    • melissa says

      The CR Rainbow has the registers adjusted so that the coupon only doubles up to the amount of the item. No overage allowed. I did this today. The Kix cereal Q did not double fully, because of the $9 off. Still, 6 free boxes. No complaints here. I did the MQ first, thanks.

    **NEW** Sierra Mist (2 Liter) $1.50

    Use $1/1 Sierra Mist Product printable after spinning the wheel and getting a chance to win the coupon (Facebook offer)

    Final price: Free after doubled coupon

    Anyone has better luck than me. I have been spinning that wheel once per day, never got the matching tails after each time I cricked the button to spin.

    • Kim says

      Jennifer – I had the same problem & earlier tonight clicked while the wheel was still spinning & got the coupon. Not sure if I happened to click when I would already win, but it's worth a shot!

  97. Chris says

    For the GM cereal deal, I just saw a $.75/1 Chex Apple Cinnamon printable on coupons.com that isn't on the list

  98. Thao says

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but for the Hamburger Helpers there is a coupon in the Monopoly game pieces. I got three of them and got a even better deal!! :)

  99. Chris says

    The Gillette Fusion Shaving Gel IS INCLUDED in the $25 P&G Promotion! It was labeled in my store with a tag, and I did do the deal as follows and it worked like a charm:

    **Deal Idea**

    Buy (4) Gillette Fusion Shaving Gel @ $3.00 each.

    Buy (2) Good News or Custom Plus Disposable Razors @ $7.00 each

    Subtotal before coupons = $26.00.

    Use (4) $1/1 Gillette Fusion coupons from 6/3 P&G insert

    Use (1) Buy 1 Gillette Male Disposable Razor, Get 1 Free from 6/3 P&G insert

    Spend $11.00, then submit for $10.00 mail-in rebate.

    Final Price: $1.00 for everything!

  100. L says

    I did the P&G deal. Spent 27.36. I now have this catalina telling me about the deal but doesn't say where to send it and there is nothing on my receipt. How do I redeem this??

    • melissa says

      If you Google P&& G rebate, you can find the form. I believe that items needed to be purchased by June 5th

      • L says

        I have searched and can't find the one for this one $10 card off of $25. Does anyone have a link to where they found one?

        • Chris says

          The form should have printed out along with the catalina telling you about it. You can't get the form online, you can only get it from the in-store promotion after checking out.

        • ellen says

          you should hav gotten the form together with the info cat. I just did the p&g deal just now and got the form and the info cat.

  101. Becky says

    Is it too much to ask for couponers not to take so many of any one item? I went to do the Mrs. T's deal today, got to the store at 7:45 and there were several people in line with over 9 or 10 boxes of the Mrs. T's pierogies. I was feeling bad about buying three of them….Needless to say, I got the last box but I didn't get to do the ice cream since there was only one left.

    • Rachel says


      Definately agree! My husband shops at the Lakeville store. He told me by 7:15 there were two ladies with their carts full of Mrs. T's. He bought 3, and an older lady after him got 3, leaving only 1 left. :(

    • melissa says

      Sounds like it would have been a good time for those shoppers to place a special order. It is frustrating when the shelves are empty. I have to get to my store at 6 a.m. , or there is nothing left.

    • Mel says

      Of course I didn't expect there to be any by noon when I got there and the Service Counter didn't even need to look at the ad to give me the rain check so I assume many of us ended up with Rain checks on a deal like this which only has one row of the product on the shelf but has a buy 3 requirement. She wouldn't give me the free ice cream with it. Did anyone get a rain check with the ice cream included? This is likely like the cereal deals with milk that some stores give you a rain check with free milk written on it and some won't. I'm sure it also varies by CS rep as well. Just wondering if I should try and stop back with the PM crew and see if she'll add it to my rain check.

      • Sarah says

        I did get it with the icecream included. The poor dude working behind the desk had no clue what the pierogi was. I had to spell it out for him, tell him how much it cost and that it included ice cream -hopefully I can use that twice, since my kids love pierogis. I don't even care if I get the ice cream or not.

  102. Mel says

    Eden Prairie Rainbow has Chobani 6 oz cups of Plain (in fridge section near produce with organics) and Passion Fruit (in yogurt fridge section near ice cream) at 4 for $3, there's a $.30/1 coupon on their website http://www.chobani.com/coupons/ so if you double the coupon it makes for $.15 Chobani! I'm pretty sure this will only be while supplies last and at this location since the yogurt is dated 6/16 and it is only these two varieties. I also found the Cherry Trix yogurt, also with a short shelf life, at 2 for $1.50, which makes the above deal even better using the 75/2 MQs listed above. Just a heads up though that I read labels and the Trix 4 oz cup has 5 more grams of sugar than the "Simply Go-gurt" tubes or the regular "Yoplait Kids" in the yellow packs (which aren't included in the sale this week).

    I also found the "Pure Leaf" tea 56oz jugs with the 100% juices (Simply Orange, etc.) in the fridge section at EP Rainbow. They're $2 on sale and there's a 1/1 MQ from 5/13 SS I believe? Maybe 5/6? I had looked for these last week at Plymouth Station and couldn't find them with their juices

  103. Rhonda says

  104. mary says

    Chris, where did you find this 2/$2 deal? Was it online? Only at PNS? It wasn't at my Rainbow, and I didn't notice it til today when looking at my receipts:>(

    • Christina says

      It was in the Rainbow ad, but it was only one flavor that was on sale (the dark blue pack, not the lighter green one).

  105. AsUntoTheLord says

    Sorry for the late notice, busy week…here are a few notes for the 2nd shift shoppers (i.e. PNS/Copps)

    Land O Lakes butter is on sale for $3 and there is a coupon for $0.75/1 Land O Lakes Half Stick Butter 1 lb in the 4/29 SS…so FP $1.50.

    Keep an eye out also for tearpads with $0.75/1 (these do say DND but start with a 5 so YMMV). The tearpad coupons don't expire until 8/31.

    Also, if you're not finding the Mangos, know that most stores are calling them just "Yellow Mangos" and the label on the fruit says Champaign. Can't wait to try making Strawberry Mango Jam! :-)

  106. says

    The *official* policy is that the $25 is calculated off of sale prices. Some cashiers may refuse to scan your coupons if your total is below $25 after sale price (but above $25 with shelf price).
