Fred Meyer Friends & Family Pass & Monster List of Ideas (+ Coupon Deals starting 8/11)

fredmeyerfriendsfamily

Without a doubt, some of my favorite times of the year to shop at Fred Meyer are when they release Friends & Family passes. As I recently shared with you, that’s happening August 10 (Saturday) – August 15 (Thursday). My goal with today’s post is not only explain how awesome this pass is, but give you some specific ideas for ways you might want to use it.

First things, first: Print your Friends & Family Pass (pdf) Please note that this is the pass provided me from Fred Meyer corporate directly to share with you. So it’s completely legit for you to print and bring. Make sure to save it as you can use it multiple times!

Here are the discounts it will yield you on top of store sales, clearance, and store & manufacturer coupons:

  • 20% off Clothing, Shoes, Accessories & Cosmetics
  • 15% off Home Department (includes toys)
  • 10% off Home Electronics
  • 10% off Nutrition Center
  • 10% off Private Label Food

The discount will be applied after all other discounts. Do note that there are very few exclusions on the coupons = so take advantage!

The final thing I want to point out is that the pass is that Fred Meyer ads run Sunday – Saturday. This means that some of the deals are good tomorrow only and others don’t start until Sunday. In the interest of time and space, I’m going to include all the deals on this one post – just pay attention to any date notations.

What deals are you most excited about snagging?

    I believe Country Oven is also included as a ‘Private Brand’ product, so the bread would be an extra 10% off :) … Love the Friends and Family pass!!!

  2. Kim C says

    I have purchased the sheets before, not the softest but perfect for backups (middle of night accident, sleepovers on the hide a bed), screen drops, and camping!!!

  3. Anne says

    It’s hard to tell what my savings are on Fred Meyer receipts, but I estimate I saved 60-70%. Here’s what I bought this morning for $41.37:
    -two pair set of 18 months pjs (regularly $32, I paid $12.80)
    -a Playschool lion pop-up baby toy (regularly $19.99, I paid $6.78)
    -a Fisher Price baby puzzle (regularly $10.99, I paid $3.72)
    -2 large Snapwares for flour and sugar (sale price $6.99, I paid $3.94 each)
    -2 medium Snapwares for powdered and brown sugar (sale price $4.79, I paid $2.07 each)
    -1 smaller Snapware (sale price $2.49, I paid $0.12)
    -2 packs colored Bic pens (sale price $1.49 each, I paid $0.27 each)
    -2 Simple Truth soy milks (sale price 2/$5, I paid $2.25 each)
    -2 Fred Meyer tortilla chips (sale price 10/$10, I paid $0.90 each)

    I have to go back and look at the Snapware because I wrote down the sale price for the large ones as $5.49 but I was charged $6.99. I need to check if the shelf tag was wrong or if it didn’t ring up the sale price. Regardless, I know on the Snapware I saved at least $20 between the sale price, the Friends and Family coupon, and the $2/1 insert coupons. Also, I could have bought more smaller ones for $0.12 each, but they don’t stack well and I didn’t really need them. I am excited to have ones for baking and I never would have splurged for the full price. :)

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    I love when this pass comes out! This is the only time I buy clothes at Freddie’s. I love how you can use the pass with clearance. I wish they would normally allow for use with clearance on the weekly coupons in the flyer. Maybe you can ask the people you are in contact with there if they would consider that.
    I definitely would buy more clothes there that way. Otherwise, they are way too expensive for us.
    I was able to get some awesome deals yesterday on clearance clothes, and I got a pair of New Balance Sneakers for my husband for only $28 after all the discounts.
    Thanks for your hard work!

  5. Karen says

    I couldn’t believe that they scanned the coupons all the coupons on that F&F page. I got some great deals. One that you didn’t mention:
    Rubbermaid Lunch Blox were on sale for $6.49 at my store. The recent Sunday coupon (not sure which week) was $2 off. Plus, whatever of those coupons worked. Total was somewhere around $4 for a set that usually costs $12+ at FM.
