This Extreme Couponing session is geared more for those that live in the Southern California area. If you shop at a Safeway store–this may be something you want to read–as Safeway is similar, except not all Safeway stores double coupons.
Weekly Ad Dates:
Mid week supplemental Ad.
In order to get their advertised sale prices, you must use this card each time you shop.
Sign up in store or download an application on line.
Vons Card Perks:
The catalinas you receive will be personalized depending on what you have bought recently.
For example, if you buy a lot of baby items, you will get baby coupons. If you buy a lot of frozen food, you will get frozen food coupons. Although these state “manufacturer’s coupon” on them, they can only be used at Vons.
Scan your VonsClub Card when you buy Signature Café sandwich. Every 8th sandwich is free.
Manufacturers Coupons with an expiration date and barcode.
Online Printable Coupons that have a face value of less than $5, the words “Manufacturers Coupon” printed on them and a barcode.
Vons Store Coupons (can be stacked with MQ!).
Vons Catalina Coupons.
E-Coupons (see below).
These are coupons that you can upload to your Vons Card.
If you buy a qualifying item, the coupon will automatically be applied.
They are not doubled, and can be combined with paper MQ (not from cellfire).
You can upload other coupons (similar to the Smart Source insert) to your rewards Card by registering.
Double Coupons & Overage:
Vons doubles coupons according to the following policy:
The face value any coupon under $0.50 is doubled.
Any coupon which has a face value between $0.50 & $0.99 is worth $1.
Any coupon with a face value of $1 or over is worth just its face value.
If you are using multiples of the same coupon, only the first coupon per transaction is doubled.
This is important if you are using coupons to stock up. You can do multiple transactions and have the first coupon in each transaction doubled.
If you have a coupon that is worth more than the sale price of the corresponding item, Vons will typically still credit the entire coupon amount to your bill. Sorry guys. I wrote this several months ago and Vons no longer allows overage!
You won’t get cash back, but if you are buying other items, the overage will be applied to those items.
The Vons weekly ad is typically much larger than the Ralphs ad, but smaller than the Albertsons ad. You will generally find a few unadvertised sales each week at Vons.
Ralphs regularly offers Instant Rebate Deals and Coupon Rebate Deals, as well as other sorts of unique rebate deals.
Some examples would be “buy 4 cereals, get free milk,” or “Buy 3 participating products, get free Charmin.”
Vons will deliver for a fee of $6.95-12.95, depending on which delivery window you choose. You may not use coupons.
Even if you don’t shop online, this can be a helpful way of looking up the regular shelf prices of items that may not be listed in their ad that week.
