Update — the Rachael Ray dinnerware stamps at Jewel are generating on pre-coupon purchases. Carry on!

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

Update nevermind! lol — But, Amy comments: “Stamps are based n before coupons. This morning I purchased $120 worth of stuff and paid $47 after coupons and savings. I got 12 coupons. FYI”

And Sheri comments: “Went this morning for the Puffs and Febreeze which didn’t work, but they adjusted manually and total was $21.xx and after coupons my total was $3.xx (bought Cheetos too). On the bottom of the receipt it said I should get 2 stamps but I was in a hurry and didn’t pay attention until after I left, so may go back to get them. So according to the receipt it is pre-coupons.”

Click on the image above to get a more readable larger version. This is the official Rachael Ray Dinnerware promotion policy that was given to Jewel stores. I’m kind of unpleased about the part that reads:

Cashiers should issue one Dinnerware stamp for each full $10 spent by a customer, based on the “final total” located at the bottom of each receipt (after coupons, discounts, taxes, etc.).

If it is indeed after coupons, this is no deal at all, lol. How’s it shaking out for you in stores this morning? Here, again, is the promo:

rayray

Earn a stamp for every $10 you spend. Fill your stamp saver, get six free items. Collect 20 stamps, choose one free item. Collect 10 stamps, get an item for $2.99. Hey, $200 gets you a plate! lol Regular price $5.99 each. Choose from dinner plate, salad plate, soup/cereal bowl, or mug.

    Most people just don’t want ONE plate. You probably would want at least four matching dinner plates at the minimum. That’s $800 for four plates or $2,400 for an entire set.

    If anyone wants to collect for a charity, post the contact info and I’ll send the few I’ll probably get.

    I’m not very sure what happened. I bought $98 worth of stuff, paid $39 and change after coupons, and received 5 stamps.

    Yeah, when they did the pots and pans thing a few years ago there happened to be a girl in our department getting married. So, everyone pooled all of their stickers and between all 15 of us we got her the full set. But still, this REALLY doesn’t seem like a good buy.

  6. Suzann says

    FYI- this dinnerware is not on her site but the dinnerware that is available
    is very reasonable. In the long run maybe cheaper than buying groceries you
    do not need to get stamps.

  7. Dawn Truschke says

    All I know is that I need to buy groceries weekly and I appreciate that I can get a little something extra for shopping at Jewel.

  8. Anne says

    This is such a ridiculous ‘promotion’. As earlier readers posted, you need to purchase a heck of a lot of items at Jewel before you even get 1 piece, let alone a whole set. Seems like the Product Manager / Loyalty Rewards Marketing “genius” needs to re-think their value proposition — these stickers are not going to incent me to spend more at Jewel, heck, I’m somewhat insulted I just may head over to a few other grocery stores / retailers in town. Jewel already has the highest prices in our area.

    This just seems like such a rip off! you can go to walmart and buy a nice set for half the money that WONT scratch your table!
    Who thought of this “reward program”?!!

  10. Kat says

    I really don’t get the “rip-off” comments. I already shop regularly at Jewel, now I get a little something extra for the money I spend there. How is that a rip-off? Relax people! Nobody is forcing you to spend more money at Jewel.

      Good Luck trying to find anything, anymore “Made in America”. I too would prefer that but almost never succeed at finding these products; If you know of comparable dinnerware BRANDS that are actually “Made in America” please post names and I’ll look for them.

    • Helen says

      Regarding dinnerware made in America. CORELLE is made in the USA. I like the fact that it is light weight, microwaveable, dishwasher safe and almost unbreakable. The price is right and, I have had my set for years. Check out the new patterns and square plates. So many people out of work right now. More and more consumers are checking labels.

      • D.W. Hammond says

        I got my Corelle in 1971 and it’s indestructible! My grandfather worked for the manufacturer in US and gave it as wedding present. Yes, I chipped one plate and one shattered, but the rest are still here, and when I move, I put it all in a box, NO PACKING. The best thing is how little space these dishes take in the cupboard, or boxes.

    Nineteenth Century Club is collecting Rachel Ray stamps for local charity, Sarah’s Inn which serves battered women. So if you have stamps you won’t use, get them to 178 Forest, Oak Park, Il 60301 ASAP as we have until Jan6 to redeem. Mail them, stick them in envelope through our mails lot, drop off at office. Thanks!

    Too bad.. I got 40 stamps on the sheet and I gave them with 2 mugs to the cashier (Megan Jewel osco 370 n. des plaines Ave Chicago IL 60661 at 13:37:11 on 12/31/13) among the rest of the shopping. Now, at home reading the receipt I discovered
    RR MUG 1CT $5.99
    RR MUG 1CT $5.99

    So I paid for those MUGS .. but are those fr sale? and the cashier weren’t supposed to give me them for free?

    I know I should have checked in the store, but with so many customer waiting… I just left

  13. Andy says

    I went to trade my saved stamps for dinnerware and they didn’t even have one place setting of ANYTHING. They made no apologies, saying that they were out and there was no more being sent out. The service desk also said that “limited availability” means they don’t have to honor the stamps, even if it is still before the end of the program, Jan. 7.

  14. James says

    I went to redeem at the Jewel in Naperville and got the same response–sorry, we’re out–and we don’t care. You should have read the fine print they said. Absolutely rude and snotty.

    “While supplies last” they said. So…does that mean if they had a supply of just a dozen pieces for a store with thousands of customers then that’s ok???

    I’m done shopping at Jewel–there’s plenty of competition especially with the over-pricing that goes on at Jewel.
