Oh, I hope mine has them tomorrow...this is adding unneeded stress to my Blue Friday plans, lol.
if there aren’t any by the door, ask at customer service. they always have flyers.
I am at Sobeys now and the Barilla pasta only has one package left! I can’t even buy 2 to get the bonus! I am leaving now and try another Sobeys.
Our flyer hasn’t come I either, but the Sobey’s we shop at always has the flyers when you walk in so I’m counting on that . I don’t know about printed .
I cant go until tonight after I drop DD off at basketball. Hopefully there will still be the stuff I want there!
I am buying the coke products, top dogs, pasta x 2.
Wow, hope you have better luck at the other store. Wonder if they had low stock to begin with, or people showed up bright and early after midnight.
Don't forget to ask for a raincheck. I have received rain checks in the past for the Blue Friday items.
And the miles?
I am not sure how to deal with the miles and time is tight. I will try next time.
The other store only have 7 pasta left and I took 6. Spent $109 and got 416 AM. Better than last time and I bought what I would use.
Happy hunting everyone! Now off to work I go!
None at sobeys Stittsville I was first customer there. But as noted below more should come in. No flyers at Stittsville and totally unaware of Blue Friday (like always)
Ok, I admit I'm tired but I don't get it. The pasta is 2 for $5, so spend $10, get 100 AM. Since it's 95 AM for $10, it doesn't really seem like a good deal to me...what am I missing?
Did you ask for a rain cheque?
Its like getting the pasta for free so if its a product you use than its a real bonus. If its not something you would use or don't want to donate then its not such a good deal.
I got 8 out of 9 in Brampton Queen/Mavis location...better than nothing $2 for $5
That's what I was thinking, not understanding the huge orders since it was basically just over breaking even...
So great news they are going to extend the offer on the Barillo pasta all week. The manager of terry fox said they will be getting tons of it but they were short shipped for today
The assistant grocery manager from our local Sobeys called me last night and said they got their Barilla order in, and all they got was 3 cases = 18 packages!! She said she placed my order again and now it looks like they will have the stock on Sunday. I asked her if the air miles for Blue Friday would be honoured with the ‘rain check’ and she confirmed that I would get the air miles as well as the 2/$5 price. I’ll update on Sunday.
Sorry I didn't get a chance to respond in time but I was just getting off the bus in the freezing cold ... but the answer is yes, including the miles. You'll only be able to get whatever the store limit is for rain checks though which is usually around 4.
My husband went in with my list this morning . I work from home and can’t leave until 5 so he goes on his way to work. He grabbed a flyer on his way in and thought it was an error when the Barilla rang up at 2 for $5. So he showed the cashier the flyer and she adjusted it. There was no sign up anywhere so neither of them knew there had been a correction. Our store had 18, so we bought them all as we will absolutely use them. None of my “My Offers” miles posted. I’ll let it go because of the error in our favour but I need to call at some point because now that I think of it, I haven’t been getting them for a long time now.
Grand total was $105.94 and we received 756 airmiles.
We will attempt a second shop at another Sobey’s after work for some of the other items that we didn’t get this round. This was a great start to my collecting for a December 2020 trip.
* Update, hubby just clarified it was the store manager that rang him out and made the adjustment so even she didn’t know. This particular store is regularly clueless on the AM promos though, and it’s never in our favour. We avoid them when we can since it almost always requires fixing.
No pasta at Terry Fox or March Road. I complained about the lack of stock to the cashier at Terry Fox and she said "someone came in and bought all 20 packages at 7am". MY response "there should have been way more than 20 packages for this promo". She said the price and miles are extended through the weekend and more are coming, but I'd be shocked if the miles were actually extended, probably just the price. My planned shop was 830 miles for just over $100. I added some of the prime frozen chicken products and pogos for the kids to offset the lack of pasta, and ended up with 440 miles for just over $100. Still not terrible, but not what I was hoping for.
