Fred Meyer Friends & Family Monster Deal Ideas Post: 11/27 – 12/2

Fred Meyer Friends & Family Pass Download

I had a chance to go to my Fred Meyer store tonight to scout out some deal ideas for you for the Friends & Family pass you’ll be able to use starting Tuesday, November 27th. Guess what folks? Some of these deals are BETTER THAN BLACK FRIDAY, in my humble opinion. You can print your Friends & Family pass now and hang on to it.

Friends & Family Pass: How it Works

Before I share the deals, I want to clarify a few things about the pass, so you’ll be in the know before planning your shopping trip.

First, here’s what the discount will save you:

  • Extra 20% off Apparel, Shoes, Cosmetics and Accessories
  • Extra 15% off Home Department, including Toys, School Supplies, Sporting Goods, Auto and Garden
  • Extra 10% off Home Electronics (excludes gift cards, event tickets, phone activation, mobile phones, Google Nexus, iPad, Kindle, Nook, and Wii U hardware)
  • Extra 10% off Nutrition Center
  • Extra 10% off Private Brand Products in Food, including Fred Meyer, Kroger, Big K, Private Selection, Country Oven, Mountain Dairy and more
  • Extra 20% off Fine Jewelry (excludes Un mounted Diamonds, Watches, Exceptional Values, Scott Kay, Lotus, Primo Men’s Jewelry, Bon Bracelets, BeCharmed and Zable)
  • These discounts may be applied to regular, sale and clearance prices

Other important things to note:

  • If an item “doubles up” on a discount, only one will be applied. (For instance, if you have a private label brand in the organic department, you’ll only save one 10%, not 10% for private label and 10% for nutrition center.)
  • You CAN use extra bonus, store, and manufacturer coupons with the discount.
  • The discount will be applied after all other discounts.
  • The Friends & Family has a lot less exclusions than most store & extra bonus coupons. For instance, you can use the Friends & Family pass on clearance and price blaster items.

If you have other questions, please do ask now! My pals at Fred Meyer have been very gracious to help answer the questions I’ve posed in the past to help everyone get the best deals possible! (Love those guys!)

Finally, please take this as a monster list of IDEAS. There is no way possible I could list the thousands of different items and possibilities. There truly are too many to list! I hope this gets you started!

Comments

  1. Yvonne Bush says

    You cannot use the home coupon on the Garden Decor because garden stuff is not included. The savings certificate in electronics is only good for 2 days which means it will no longer be available on Tue when this sale starts. They may have some Fri, Sat or Sat only door buster coupons this weekend because they always seem to at this time of the year.

    THANK YOU for posting this! I was able to do the ImagiNext Talon Castle deal and it worked great! My son will be so happy as it’s at the top of his list this year!! :-)
