Fred Meyer Friends & Family Monster Post of Ideas

Late last Sunday, I shared with you that Fred Meyer would be bringing its Friends and Family discount back starting this Friday, August 10th and running through Wednesday, August 15th. This discount is AMAZING because you can 1) use it on top of other store and manufacturer coupons 2) use it as many times as you wish and 3) use it on hard-to-save on items and brands. You basically end up with the same discounts that store associates get! You will need to print out this pass to get the discounts (and this pass was emailed me by Fred Meyer Corporate – so nothing hinky there!) Note that the discount will be applied after all other discounts.

As a reminder, here are the discounts you can receive via the pass:

  • 20% of Apparel, Accessories, Shoes
  • 15% Home Dept, including School Supplies, Toys, Auto, Garden, and Sporting Goods
  • 10% Home Electronics
  • 10% Nutrition Center
  • 10% Private Brand Products (Fred Meyer, Kroger, Mountain Dairy, and more)

Now I scoped out a local Fred Meyer store today and let me tell ya – there are sooo many possibilities for this sale. SO. MANY. And somewhere between the lamps and rugs I hit a wall. So please, take this list as an idea of what you can find, but it’s by no means a comprehensive list. Second, I would LOVE it if you shared your scenarios and other ideas here – just leave a comment.

Also note that these prices were noted today and may be subject to change. To play it safe, if you see a deal you like, plan on shopping Friday for best selection, Saturday for the last day of the ad cycle. This pass straddles their ad cycle of Sunday – Saturday, so please, heads up!

      Here is the exact fine print: May not be combined with an Associate Discount or another Shopping Pass, but
      may be combined with other coupons. Shopping Pass applied after all coupons and
      discounts are taken. Redeemable for in-store merchandise only. Valid on regular,
      sale, clearance, coupon and Savings Certificate offers. Not valid on prior purchases
      or for Ad Match Items, Gift Cards, postage, phone activation, mobile phones,
      event tickets or Wii U, iPad, Kindle and Nook Hardware. Limit 1 Shopping Pass per
      Customer. Non-transferable. Duplication is prohibited.

      I will be happy to double check with the powers that be there, but last year it DID work on Price Blasters ;)

      • LIsa says

        awesome, I’m going on friday, so we’ll hope for the best! thanks for listing the deals, I love your site!

          • arussell says

            Yup – you got it – no other store coupons. I have successfully used manu coupons on them before though (such as the Bic $1/2 tearpad & insert coupon on Bic priceblaster items.)

  1. Angela S says

    I got my rewards in the mail yesterday and I ended up spending $2.67 for a gallon of milk, loaf of bread, 16 pk of hamburger buns, dozen eggs and almond breeze pint of ice cream and so delicious coffee creamer. My rewards came with coupons which included $2 of $2 frozen items.

  2. Jennifer says

    I’m looking forward to the kids Hanes sale. Don’t know about socks, but boys underwear is on sale for 10.99.

    Boys Hanes Underwear 10.99
    15% off Extra Bonus Coupon (this week’s ad – through 8/11)
    20% off Friends & Family Pass
    Approximately $7.50/pack (reg price $15)

    The deal is made even better by my Rewards that just came. I have a $3/$15 apparel coupon that will make it $12 for 2 packs.

  3. ??? says

    I believe that the 10% Home Extra Bonus Coupon expired on Tuesday 8/7.This is a great opportunity to save 20% on brands that are always excluded from the 15% apparel, accessories, and shoes coupon, like Nike, Dockers, Sketchers, Dockers, Adidas, Levi’s, etc. Finally, once in a blue moon, the 20% coupon works with Under Armour!!!(amazing offer for this brand that is NEVER on sale)

    • Bonnie Thomas says

      Last time I printed the friends and family coupon from a blog, FM wouldn’t accept it. Then FM sent one in my email and it worked. But no email from FM this time. Hoping my print of this site will work.

      • arussell says

        Eeek….I’m not sure what to tell you other than Fred Meyer’s Marketing Department gave me this coupon! So they emailed it to me with permission to share. I sure hope it works for you this time!

  4. Star says

    The 60% off Apparel Clearance only applies at the University Place and Tumwater Fred Meyer. These 2 stores are in a remodel and thats why they have a deeper clearance discount.

    • arussell says

      THanks for pointing that out! Today at a different store, I noted that the clearance was at 50% off… still a fabulous deal, but not 60%!

  5. Angie Thibodeaux says

    Kids sleepwear is also 40% off. The 15% off clothing coupon works, and so does the 20% off! Brings them to a manageable level for my kids. Loathes price point.

    Thank you so much for bringing this discount to my attention! I had fun!

    I got a shirt for me, a shirt for my husband, 8 pair of kid pajamas, 8 kid shirts, 3 pair of kid pants, and a package of boys underwear and a 10 pack of girls socks. I used the 15% off coupon, the 20% off friends and family coupon, plus I had a $3 off an apparel purchase of $15 or more, and a $6.72 FM rewards.

    I spent $108, and saved $207.84!!! They had to call a manager over for approval due to the amount I saved! And that savings is just from the amount the clearance was marked down to, before the 60%–it doesn’t take into account what the regular price was to begin with.

    I’m probably going to go pick up an Xbox game and groceries before the sale is over, but I made a killing in the clothing department!

  6. Christan says

    I saw this post after getting back from vacation, so put my list together and took a chance!

    I figured I would try for some Nike shoes for school for my boys, but they wanted a different brand, so wasn’t sure how the pricing would go. I ended up getting Adidas, NB, Converse, and Avia shoes for $100!! I saved almost $90 and that’s not calculating the original price for the Avia since they were clearance. I was thrilled!!! I hardly ever find the sizes I need for more than one child at a time and I managed for 3 of my kids!! Yeah!! Great start to school shopping!! Thanks so much!!
