I have listed only what I consider to be the best deals this week.
View the
complete VG's Ad here for all of the advertised specials.

Did you know? VG's offers a $0.05 reusable bag credit per bag you bring. You may have to remind your cashier, however, as the credit is not automatic.

Shopping with Kids? Stop by the customer service desk and sign them up for the Zoo Crew Kids' Club. They'll receive special treats, including a cookie from the bakery when they visit!

Save your receipts - as part of VG's Community Share Program, they can benefit non-profit groups in Michigan. You don't need to sign up; simply find a group collecting receipts and turn yours in to them. Trinity Lutheran Church in Utica (45160 Van Dyke at Hall Rd) collects VG's receipts to purchase socks for the homeless. You can leave your receipts at the front desk there if you can't find another participating group.

VG's Extra Edition can be found near the ads at the front door. This small, black & white 4-page ad features additional savings for the week.

Visit the Meat Department and hunt for the yellow rectangular markdown tags. VG's routinely offers 50% off soon-to-expire meat; most packages are amazing cuts of meat with no sign of aging and won't expire for 2 more days, which allows plenty of time for cooking or freezing.

  1. did any one try the pillsbury cresent roll and chex mix bar deal??

  2. any one tried the genera mills deal????????????

  3. Yes! I tried it tonight. I got 2 Simply Cookies (with $1.25 printable coupons) and 6 Cinnamon Rolls (with $1.00 coupons). I paid $6.45 (I brought my own bag to save another $0.05) and received one $5.00 checkout coupon from General Mills and another $4.00 checkout coupon from Pillsbury!

  4. has some worthwhile coupons for Spartan branded products -- they're good into November, but you'll need to register to print them.

    Spartan Apple Juice (64oz): $1.67 (sale price) - $0.55 coupon = $1.12

    (fresh produce) Spartan Baby Bella Mushrooms (8oz): $1.50 (sale price) - 0.55 coupon = $0.95.

    Spartan Fruit Bowls (4ct/4oz) $2.19 (everyday price) - $1.00 coupon = $1.19

    Spartan Juice Boxes (10ct): $1.99 (everyday price) - $1.00 coupon = $0.99

    Spartan Frozen Angus Beef Patties (32oz.): $6.99 (everyday price) - $2.00 coupon = $4.99 [coupon is good on other frozen beef packages]

    Spartan Raisins (6pk): $1.69 - $1.00 coupon = $0.69.


    Also, there's a coupon for $6 off a 12" Spartan shrimp ring. VGs carry VG-branded shrimp rings, but I believe these are actually re-branded Spartan shrimp rings and are being phased out in favor of Spartan-branded shrimp rings (Spartan bought VG's outright early this year). The cashier will probably take the coupon if it scans.

  5. Thanks, JB! I've been wondering if Spartan coupons were available! I'll update the matchups soon...
