I love Fred Meyer, and I love it even more now that my daughter & I have discovered the Playland amenity! She gets to go meet some kids and play for an hour and I get to relax and enjoy the free hour of kid-free shopping!
I also love Fred Meyer because they have an awesome coupon exchange bin at the front of the store. This is where people drop the Catalinas they won't use and grab some that they will. I have found some awesome high value coupons in this bin and saved them for a good sale! Plus Fred Meyer has e-coupons that can be loaded directly to your card and their coupon policy allows you to use Catalinas from other stores as long as it states "Manufacturer Coupon" on the CAT.
Here is what I got today:
2 Loaves of Bread (with no HFCS!) - on clearance for $.75 each!
1 Bag of Cinnamon Rasin bagels - on clearance for $1.39
