Cub Foods Shopping List 1/27 – 2/2/13

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

This deal has expired and may no longer be valid.

As of April 15, Cub Foods changed their coupon policy. You can read Cub Foods’ new coupon policy, but the most notable change is that they only accept expired coupons up to 30 days past their expiration date.

Remember that this is a starting list of deals for the week. As readers leave comments with bargains they found at their local store or we get emails with deal ideas, 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 spot this week?


  1. chris says

    Most of the Cub deli's have a pack of coupons over their "hot bar" for a free pound of wings when you buy a Hormel party tray. That's another $6.99 saved, regularly but I think the wings are advertised this week also for $5.99/lb.

  2. says has Buy 2 get 1 free on the Digiorno pizza. Also Red plum had that coupon in the 1/27/13 paper. I used 2 coupons and got a total of $16.00 of my bill. $5.00 a pizza and $2.00 per 2 2 liter coke products.

    There are some pretty good Manufacture Cuopons in the County Market weekly ad in the N. Metro. I use these at Rainbow to Double on Saturdays and keep them for an extra month to use at CUB. There is a good $2 off 4 Kraft products that can be used this week at CUB.

  4. Mindy says

    I think it would be so helpful to highlight the deals that are great deals in red or otherwise make them stand out from the other deals. Just an idea. I think of it every time I read this on Sundays.

    • Angela says

      they ARE great deals! that why they're on the list! :D its usually noted after the final price if it's not a good price, if its a good price for the season, if we may see better prices later, if its cheaper at another store, or if its rock bottom! also, I think the lists are arranged by department, then lowest price with that department . least I've noticed it with the CVS lists.

    • Josh says

      WOW! Mindy you seem very ungrateful!

      Is it so hard for you to take 3 minutes a week to scroll down the list and find out what are the best deals of the week at Cub Foods for you to buy?

      Not everyone buys the same products or considers the deals on specific products good deals.

      It's like you want this website to cater to your specific needs so you don't have to waste your precious SECONDS scrolling down with your mouse to get the deals that YOU want.

    • Connie says

      I many times think that it's not a very good price. But I have realized that in the cities we have so many good deals and options for stores to buy from.

      I now understand that some live in areas with only one store option, so for them it may be their best price.

      I appreciate soooo much all these ladies do to help us save money, as I'm sure you do, too. Happy saving:>)

      Mindy – Carrie and I have discussed this several times but have refrained from doing so for a number of reasons:

      — Like Connie mentioned, some people live in areas with limited store options and/or choose to shop at only one or two stores. That will change what a good "buy" price is for people.

      — People have different needs for themselves and their families. For example, I buy yogurt EVERY week for my family, so my "buy" price is slightly higher since we need it every week. If yogurt is something you only buy on occasion, your "buy" price will be lower. Or some people only buy snack foods or beauty products when they're free, while others are willing to pay a little more for particular brands.

      It takes a little work, but it's best to come up with your personal price point list. Make a list of 10-20 items that you regularly buy and keep track of those prices (with or without coupons) for a couple of months. At the end of that time period, you'll have a better idea of what really makes a good deal for you specifically. Hope this helps!

  5. Amy says

    Kraft Mac 'N Cheese $3.99 (5 pk.) so $0.80 each. Not the best price ever but definitely cheaper than the other stores this week and we are all out at our house.

  6. Connie says

    I think you may have forgotten to subtract the .75 coupon from the Orville popcorn/soda deal. Would it be 1.27/box plus free soda?

  7. mary says

    Connie – You're right, but I'm not sure you can use both of those coupons for that deal. I think it will cause the register to beep and not accept both. I am going to remove the popcorn manufacturer coupon to err on the safe side.

  8. mnesota says

    Yes, you can do this deal:

    Buy 2 orvile popcorns (B1G1 2/$3.98)

    Buy 2 sodas (2 liters)

    Use $0.75/2 orville mq ss 1/20

    Use Cub Food in-ad mq for Free Sodas

  9. Kae says


    That was harsh and uncalled for. I did not take Mindy's comment as ungrateful!

    I don't know Mindy, but I do know that sometimes I think something is a great idea until I learn more about how or why something is done. Great ideas do come from some suggestions.

    One of the reasons why I love coming to this site is because of the helpful and friendly comments from other readers. Josh, your comments did not sound friendly or helpful. I don't know what your intentions were, but they were not welcoming to a new person looking at the site for the first time.

    I think Laura and the rest of Carrie's group do a great job of answering questions in a very thorough and respectful way. Thank you.

    The Tyson chicken strips that are on sale for 2.00 are the small bags in the lunch meat area. not the frozen ones. There is a .55 coupon for them.

  11. says

    Once again my 5.00 off 50.00 coupon added itself back in after my coupons were scanned. I made sure to have 50.00 after Cub store coupons. I am not sure at what price point this happens, but I've had it happen before. My patient and experienced cashier at the Brooklyn Center store was able to make it work. Just a heads up to anyone using those 5.00 off 50.00 coupons to watch and make sure they stay deducted.

  12. DeAnn says

    Last night we had $50 worth of groceries and the clerk scanned all the manf. coupons and then the Cub $5 off 0f $50. She said that beginning first of this year the $5 off of $50 changed to be AFTER manf. coupons. So I had to quickly run back and get $5 more of items to finish my transaction

    I reread the policy this AM and couldn't find anything about this change.

      • sarah says

        It's interesting that its getting harder to use Qs that cub-most of their deals of buy X and get $XX back minimums are after the manufacture Qs are included in. Hardly makes it worthwhile. I think its been 2 weeks or more since I have been there.

  13. Jen says

    I was just going through my coupons and stumbled across a coupon I received in the mail for a free box of Nutrisse hair color. It was one of those that looks like an internet coupon but it's printed on paper with a watermark and has printing on the back. It expired on 1/13 and I was wondering if Cub's expired coupon policy works on a coupon for a free item?

  14. Joy says

    Thom – So did you get 6 pizzas and 6 pops? I was clarifying the deal can be done essentially 3 times with the coke products.

  15. Alison says

    I too had the 5.00 add back to my transaction after all my other coupons brought the total below 50.00. I went to cs to get it fixed and they said that since the 1st of the year the policy has changed. I suggested they put it in their coupon policy so we are all aware of the situation. Just an FYI, the days of getting groceries even cheeper at Cub are coming to a close.

  16. Sherry says

    My hubby and I did the 3/$6 Tostitoes chip deal and found a peelie on sporadic bags for a free Tostitoes dip ($3.69 value) when you purchase 2 bags of Tostitoes. I believe there was a coupon you could print online as well, but just wanted others to be on the lookout for these in the store. We love FREE!!!

  17. chris says

    Wanted to add that in addition to the Everyday Essential Orange Juice coupon from a few weeks ago, right next to it is one for $1.50 of their cereal. I was able to find Cub brand Rice Krispies, Apple Jacks and others at $2.25 each. Minus $.75 makes them $1.50 each.

  18. Nuui says

    **NEW** Bailey’s Coffee Creamer (16 oz.) $1.50

    $1/1 Baileys Coffee Creamer from 11/18 Smart Source insert

    I think this is just past the date for the 30 days they take past the expiration, 12/31.

  19. Marla says

    I noticed that your list is not linking to some of the available coupons on Example: There is a coupon for the Hormel chili and a the Mott's Applesauce.

  20. Laura says

    FYI-the cub email list promotion ($4 off $25) link states that the promotion has ended and is no longer available.
