Since I needed to pick some groceries, this morning, I ran into Walgreens first to if they had the Hungry Jack Flavored Mashed Potatoes 5oz for $1 (that was a no go) and then I checked to see if they had the FREE Bai Boost 18 oz ($2.99) and to my surprise, they had it right there next to the regular Bai drinks! Keep in mind that walgreens.com didn’t show the drink in store.

Also, another surprise was while I was Vons, I thought, I’d pick up the FREE Signature SELECT Potato Chips 7.75-8-oz. but chips were already wiped off the shelf at 8:30, this morning.

    it is so frustrating that Marketing Dept is not allowed to send products out to the stores they have to rely on stores to order the products.
    my dh went to a large Vons and he said all the eggs were expired, probably still good but why should we pay full price for old eggs?

      OMG, is this why the Free Viennetta cake is nowhere in stores in SoCal…not one store in San Diego was willing to order? Yes, most likely the eggs are still good HOWEVER I wouldn’t buy expired eggs.

        Roz, stores can order what is in the warehouse. Albertsons doesn’t carry Klondike even though their cones are suppose to be coming since Nestles doesn’t have cones at this time

          I saw the Klondike bars at Vons but no Klondike cones nor the Klondike shakes but am I right that for whatever reason the Viennetta cake wasn’t distributed in SoCal? I saw on Slick Deals that the cake is in Sacramento but it didn’t seem to be in the Bay Area.

            May be a west coast thing because I looked on their map and couldn’t come up with them in Oregon either.

            I am in the Seattle area. We have Klondike cones in our Safeways but they are 9 bucks a box! No sales that I’ve seen so far. Too expensive even for a ice cream addict like me 🙂

            My God, $9 for the Klondike cones…that’s outrageous! Yes, that would be definitely left on the shelf. I wanted to try to the Klondike cones, too.

    Which Vons store did you go to where the chips were already out? Maybe you got there too early and they didn’t stock them yet? I am planning to go to the Albertson’s in Lemon Grove later, so hopefully they will have the chips there.

      I went to the Vons off of Adams but I’ll by the Vons on 30th, later this morning. I could also check the Vons on Washington St but I hate their underground parking there.

      I was actually at the Lemon Grove Albertsons on Friday and wow, the store has definitely changed since renovation there but I’m glad that they finally got self check out! It must be almost the very last Vons/Albertsons that got the SCO.

        There is still a Vons store on Lake Murray Dr. that does not have a self-checkout. This store is not too far from me, but I never go here because of no self-checkout.

          my friend’s Vons in Valencia doesn’t have self checkout

    I could not find the Bai Boost at my Walgreens so I asked an employee and he found them in the back. When I brought it up to the counter, the price was over $3 with CRV so I passed because the Ibotta rebate was only for $1.99. I know Walgreens is expensive, but geez, that is a lot for a drink. I would say about 90 percent of my trips to Walgreens I leave without buying anything.
