I also swung by Fred Meyer to grab about $2 worth of grapes and a free Sobe (found a free item q in the exchange basket).


  1. For the free rice coupon, did yours specify a flavor? Mine says Chicken Medley or Roasted Garlic. I can't find these flavors anywhere! Wonder if it would work on any of the Whole Grain Medleys.

    PS I tried to post this comment earlier, but had problems, so sorry if it double posts.

  2. Annette, my coupon also had those flavors listed and I haven't been able to find those flavors in any store near me. I checked with the manager who said if it scanned on a different flavor- they'd take it. It expires at the end of the month so I was worried I might never find the right flavor.

  3. Thanks for the info. I was worried about the same thing- no one carries those flavors and it's expiring this month. I'll give it a try and see what happens tomorrow. The worst they can say is no.

  4. what does "(used FREE item q)" mean? and how do you get that? I'm new to this whole coupon world. thanks

  5. Mariah, welcome to the world of couponing- you're going to LOVE it! "free item q" means I used a coupon to make the item I bought free. I do not know where the Yoplait coupon came from (I got it in the mail but don't remeber signing up for one). The free uncle ben's coupon was one that was I signed up for last month (there was a limited time frame to do so).

    I have also recieved lots of free item coupons in the past from writing to companies and complimenting products I like. For more info on that, you can click the link titled "Coupon Request Wednesday" in the Labels column to the right of the screen. Hope that helps!
