Totally worth $31 shopping

I’ve been out and about all day, but had to drive a kid to Glen Ellyn — so decided to stop at Ultra and ALDI on the way there, and swing by Whole Foods on the way back. OK, Whole Foods is not technically anywhere near “on the way back” — but by the time I’m in Glen Ellyn I’m halfway there, lol.

Ultra Foods

The Planters Natural peanut butter is included in the 3/$5.00 sale this week! It’s not usually, so that was a nice surprise.

Will get back $1.00 from Ibotta — it just keeps showing up even though I’ve already redeemed it!

      If it makes you feel better, I only got $1.00 back from ibotta because I clutched and submitted the receipt before unlocking So Delicious :)

    Did you have any problems with the Beyond Meat coupon? I forgot to bring it when I went the other day.

    Also, what is this case discount about? I don’t see that listed anywhere at the store. I saw Luna bars for $.99 or $14 something (which I imagined was the box of 15).

      When you buy a case of any single item, they will give you 10% off at the register. However, it doesn’t automatically do it, you have to tell them at checkout and then they will manually put it in. If you look at each item’s shelf tag, real small on the upper right it will tell you how many are in a case. Often it is 12, but not always. So Luna bars are $.99 when you buy singles, but 12= a “case,” so you just tell them at the register that you have a case of the bars and they will punch in the discount for you.

      And the Beyond Meat coupon scanned in just fine and automatically took off the $5.69 price.

        Interesting. I could’ve sworn they were 15 in a box, hence the $14 something price I see at my store. I also googled Luna bar case and they only seem to be in 15s.

        • says

          Eek, maybe it is supposed to be 15 then. The first time I got these I bought 12 and she said “oh, you have a case” — I never looked at the tag because it’s almost always 12, so I went with it. I would have bought 15 otherwise.

          • Tamara says

            So, my tag said .99 for one and $14.85 for a box of 15, which is literally .99 X 15. I figured I would only buy 6 in case I didn’t like them, but still wanted variety. I get to the cash register and she tells me it’s a 10% discount if you buy 12 or more. Therefore, the tag and size of the box and has nothing to do with it. Apparently, it’s just 12+ and it’s a discount. 😀

    My Whole Foods (South Evanston) took the Beyond Meat coupon without any questions and it scanned right. They’re always good about taking any coupons. They also take my $2 off Dream coupons with overage when I use them on the single Dream treats (which are $1.69), which I assume is okay (the coupon doesn’t limit it). And don’t forget the $1 off kit’s organic bars, which make them free.
