Fred Meyer: Friends & Family Shopping Pass (8/10 – 8/15) + deal ideas

by Melody on August 8, 2012

Fred Meyer has released a Friends and Family shopping pass that is valid starting Friday August 10th through Wednesday August 15th.  This savings pass will allow you to get a discount just like what the associates get, up to an additional 20% off select items.  This pass CAN be used on clearance and can be combined with other Fred Meyer bonus coupons.

You can use this pass several times, as it instructs the cashier to return it to you when you are done shopping.

What you will save:

  • 20% off Apparel, Shoes, Cosmetics and Accessories
  • 15% off Home, School Supplies, Toys, School Supplies, Sporting Goods, Auto & Garden
  • 10% off Home Electronics
  • 10% off Nutrition (think organic/natural section)
  • 10% off Private Brand products (Kroger, Big K, Private Selection + more)

Here are some ideas for using your shopping pass from the weekly ad.  It’s possible that the discount will come off after your manufacturer coupons, but I don’t think that’s going to be the case.  The coupons generally don’t attach to a specific item on your receipt, so it should come off the shelf price.

Make sure to check out my Pantry and Household Stock-Up Price List to get an idea of what I consider stock-up prices and to compare your own prices.

I also headed in and scouted out some deals from the Nutrition section for you. It was a brief trip as my boys were lovingly punching each other in the head and I was writing prices down with a stubby crayon that I found at the bottom of my purse.  The last time this pass came around, these type of items were all included.  I’m assuming they will be this time as well, as they are all part of the “Nutrition” section.
