    I use the FM store branded rewards coupons on Sr. Tuesday. These generally come with your rewards rebate. I also will receive another booklet of rewards coupons about once a quarter.

    These rewards coupons will stack, so you can get some awesome deals. Depending on the coupon, they will stack with the 10% Sr. discount, any weekly flyer coupons, mfr. coupons or LTC coupons too! I use them for clothing/home items/toys & FM branded food items on Sr. Tuesdays. I have purchased some great deals in all departments doing this.

    This is my first time visiting this site and I am so impressed! Wish I would have known before as I shop FM all the time. What great savings and can’t wait to put it to use!

    ShSopped today, May 6, at my local Fred Meyer. Spent 126+ . Told the checker I was a senior and asked for the discount(I am 73). Couple behind me had a baby and was in a hurry. When I got home and checked the receipt, I didn’t get the discount. Very disappointed.

  4. Charles Carrier says

    If you check the details this isn’t such a great deal. No discount on name brands. No discount on bakery or deli. No discount on produce, meat or seafood sold by the pound (basicly almost all items in these departments). Used to shop Kroger which had similar program without all the exclusions and your card was coded so you didn’t have ask. The FM program is pretty useless for groceries.

    I thin k this IS a good deal. The store brand is of very good quality. I rarely buy name brands as they are overpriced for the same item you can buy with the store brand. Any discounts are worth going for and as a senior I appreciate the extra value.

    I was pretty disappointed in this promotion. My friends have been raving about this every month at Bunco.
    Then, my sister in law reminded me today to try it out. So, I checked the ad in the paper and sure enough there it was. Senior Tuesday!

    I made my list thinking I would stock up on items for the month. Much to my surprise when I checked out that I only saved $3.05. What the heck??? I spent $95 (after my discount)
    No where in the ad in the paper did it state that it only applies to a few items.

    I had to fight the crowds of all the slow elder people for $3. Sorry, this is not a good deal….

  7. Steve says

    Thank you Fred Meyer. We ‘re a 45 minute drive from the nearest FM, and we make the trip every month to stock up. The savings are REALLY worth it, especially combined with using the points to fill up our gas tank at the same time. Thank you VERY MUCH!

    Sometimes there are extra days during December. And, if the Friends and Family sale happens at the same time, one can score 20% off. I have learned that to get the maximum discount, one should use store coupons before the senior discount and manufacturer coupons after.

    i am very happy with the discount, I buy store brand all the time. Great value and quality. Plus I buy a lot in the nutrition center. No complaints!

  10. Chava Katz says

    This is a great deal! I found a handgun at the sporting goods counter I wanted. Price was equivalent to other places I looked, but with the 10% off discount, it brought the price down
    to a very good price. Saved $70. I’m happy and looking forward to using another senior
