Well, I’ve been hearing your comments and went and tried myself today. At my store: Bars were tagged $2.49 with no instant savings tags, and did not trigger the instant when I tried it on four of the regular honey oat crunch bars. Thins were tagged $2.99, and $1.99 each when you buy four after instant savings. Squares were tagged $2.49 with no instant savings tagged, but I didn’t try them, because the patience of Mr. 6 AND the self-checkout person was wearing thin.
However, feelgood comments: “Just got back from the Homer Glen Dominick’s. Not a happy camper. Nothing Nature Valley was tagged $1.49, discount or not. Following were tagged $2.99, or $1.99 when you buy 4:
NV Granola Thins
NV Protein Chewy Bars
NV Roasted Nut Crunch
Following were tagged $2.49 (no tag stating Save $4 when you buy 4):
NV Sweet and Salty Nut
NV Trail Mix
NV Oatmeal Squares
Just for amusement, I went to the self-serve checkout, entered my Fresh Values card, and scanned four boxes of NV Oatmeal Squares. They rang up $2.49 each, no $4 Instant off after scanning the 4th one. Total was $9.96 plus tax.”
Nicole C. comments: “Just got back from the Bannockburn Dominick’s and had a rough trip. There were Nature Valley bars (my favorite almond included) that were marked 2.49. So I figured these would be 1.49 after the $4 off triggered. These did NOT trigger the automatic $4 off. Neither did any of the oatmeal squares I tried. I was kindly told it had to be the ones that were marked $2.99 ($1.99 after discount.) There were only a couple varieties of bars and thins that were included. I also had a $5 off of $20 J4U that would disappear when we tried to get the Nature Valley deal to work, even though I was still hitting the correct dollar amount. All in all not quite the deal I was hoping for, but not bad! Best of luck!”
Sooo… I’m not sure if this varies by store, or only certain very specific varieties are working. Let me know if you find ANYTHING coming up $1.49 after instant, and at what store.
