My Trip to Ralphs

I went to Ralphs Friday, Saturday and Sunday to take advantage of the Money Maker Hot Sauce, FREE Royal Ready to Eat Rice, Money Maker Little Rememdies and the Hormel Nature Choice Lunchmeat at $0.14 each.  I did the deal on three accounts as the rebates with the exception being the Little Remedies the rebate reset 2 times for me and I only did the lunchmeat once.

For Ibotta, I was submitting those receipts as soon as I got into my car.  It wasn’t until late Saturday evening that I realized that I didn’t submit my receipt to Savingstar for the Hormel lunchmeat and imagine my surprise when I realized that my receipt actually qualified for two $3 Hormel rebates.

However, I wanted to make sure that I’d actually get credit for rebates before post about and yes, I received $6 for the Hormel lunchmeat!!!

Let me back up a bit.  When I was shopping for the Hormel lunchmeat, I was on my phone with a good friend, who had told me that her mom had passed away and while I was speaking with her, I inadvertently, grabbed three of the $4.99 Hormel lunchmeat vice the Hormel lunchmeat that was on the Mega sale. Below is how my transaction came out:

Bought (2) Hormel Natural Choice Oven Roasted Deli Turkey 8 oz $9.98
Bought (1) Hormel Natural Choice Smoked Deli Turkey 8 oz $4.99

Total = $14.97

Use -$0.50 digital coupon
Use (2) -$0.50 off HORMEL NATURAL CHOICE Lunchmeat product coupon

Total after coupons used = $13.47

Submit for (3) $0.85 IB rebate ($2.55)
Submit for (2) $3 Savingstar rebate ($6)
Earn two (3) $0.75 RCB rebate ($2.25)

Final Price: $0.42 or $0.14 each!!!

***You will only have two $0.75 RCB if you had previously activated the offer prior to them adding the offer again a second time.  If you have both offers, I’d run to Ralphs or your Kroger store before they pulled the offers.

Did I say that I got credit for the double offers of the $0.75 Hormel and the $1.50 RCBs?  You can see by the expiration dates in the picture that I received both credits.  I suspect that how and if we get credit for an RCB is based on the registers – old versus new registers.  I’m thinking stores that have missed rebates use old registers and the newer remodeled stores with new registers have less missed rebate?

Anyways, super happy with my shopping trip.

    On my rice I had a limit of 5 on my cashback.

      Yes, the Royal rice limit is 5. I have 3 accounts and I knew that I’d be buying the rice across my accounts which gives me three free rice which I’m very happy to have in my cabinets.

    At my Ralphs in Torrance the double-packs of Hormel were on mega for $4.99

      Cheryl, hopefully, people bought the better big packs unlike I did.

        Hormel double-packs only counted for 1 $3 Savingstar offer for me

          Cheryl, I wished that the double packs worked towards both rebates.

          I bought (2) Hormel Natural Choice Oven Roasted Deli Turkey 8 oz and (1) Hormel Natural Choice Smoked Deli Turkey 8 oz and as soon as I scanned the first product for Savingstar, I saw that each qualified for both rebates. In fact, let me update my post with exactly what I purchased.
