    There is an Edys ice cream coupon. The ad says limit one per customer and the coupon is $1/2… will they let two people do one transaction?

    hmm… may have to take a trip to Sedano’s! I use lots of the Spanish style tomato sauce for cooking as well as the Bouillon Cubes. The tangerines are good too my son loves those!

    Since I frequent Sedanos a lot, I’d thought I’d share a few tips for shopping there…

    like Tiffany has mentioned before, they don’t accept printable coupons. They also will not accept 2 coupons on a BOGO item. Most of them time when an item is BOGO they don’t ring up the second item. Keep your eyes peeled for “orange” BOGO stickers on items that are unadvertised, especially in the dairy/cheese section.

    Shop the ads early, especially for the “hot deals” because once the shelf is empty, they usually don’t restock and you usually can’t find someone to check the back for you. I know if I don’t get the tomato sauce now, it won’t be there on Tuesday, the last day of the ad.

    A lot of the meat “hot deals” can be found at the butchers counter and not in the rest of the packaged meat section.

    Produce is cheaper, but definitely is not the same quality as Publix, but latin staples like cilantro, garlic, plantains, etc are usually pretty good quality. You can also usually find markdown produce “ripe and ready to eat”. I got 2lbs of perfectly good bananas-just a little brown-for $0.70 this weekend. I’ll definitely pick up a bag of the onions that are on sale this week, but I can expect to find a few bad ones in the bag, but for that price, I’ll take it!

    If you can, plan your shop around lunchtime because they have excellent fresh food for a fair price (Hubby and I can share a meal for around $5!) The cafe con leche is a must try ๐Ÿ˜‰ And the cuban bread is put out fresh then too.

    Milk is always $2.49-give or take a few cents, I can’t remember off the top of my head.

    Sedano’s brand white bread is only $0.89-hubby prefers this bread over Publix brand and it actually stays softer longer.

    Avoid peak hours if you can because when busy, the lines can be horrendous! And there is very little space between the registers and aisles so it gets congested pretty fast.

    All in all, I shop the super deals in meat and produce and pick up my latin seasoning and spices there. It is also very nice for any other carribbean or even asian hard to find cooking items too.

    Hope this helps!

      Thanks Jennifer! That was very helpful.

      I think the Latin Supermarkets are all pretty similar re:quality. I go to Neighbors/Bravos/(even Aldi’s) for fruits/veggies and though the quality is not 100% like Publix it is like 50% cheaper. I can get a pack of thin cut chicken breast for about $3 or less at Neighbors. The supermarket looks really sketchy but I have never had any bad meat from there. My mom gets meat from the Broward Meat and Fish Market and she has had many bad experiences for spoiled/bad meat. I

        Yuck Felicita!! thanks for the info, now I know about Broward Meat!
        How you even been to Penn Dutch? they have excellent prices on Meat and produce!

        • Felicita says

          Tiffany, nope I don’t think I’ve been to Penn Dutch. I think it may be farther away from me since I live in Sunrise? I think that’s in Coconut Creek/Margate?

          But maybe when I’m in that area I’ll have to check it out.

          • says

            Yes, there’s one over there and one in Hollywood.. if you’re near those places they have excellent fish, chicken and beef.. Plus cheap produce.. In fact I’m going to do a post today since the boneless skinless chicken breasts are just $1.59 lb.

          I went to Broward Meat a few times when it first opened, but I never really got hooked on shopping there. It’s very carribbean/jamaican oriented so if you’re looking to find some good jerk or curry ingredients, you can definitely find it there. I stopped getting the flyer in the mail too and there are so many other options for good cheap meat that I don’t really shop there anymore. I’m out west too, in Tamarac so Sedanos is usually a stop on the way home because its further east for me (rock island and southgate). There’s an Aldis by my job and one by my house so I usually run there for those extras I need that weren’t on sale at Publix. I’ve done produce, but not meat yet…I will have to try it though!

          My sister in law lives right next to Penn Dutch in Margate and shops there all the time. You can find some more “exotic” meats there I guess like fresh duck, lamb, goat, oxtail, etc. I usually never make it there either unless I’m already up that way, but then I’d have to bring a cooler to transport meat home.

          If you are up in the Margate area, keep going north on 441 to Western Beef which is technically in Boca. They have really good and cheap meat. The whole meat department is in the freezer so if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for, I’d bring a jacket because its so cold! A lot of people from Boca do the drive down because the quality is good and prices are fair. But just like the other smaller supermarkets, the dry goods are usually priced high. Us couponers can definitely get a better deal at Publix on all of that stuff.

            Thanks for all the tips Jennifer, I get the Western Beef ad (I think they opened one in Pembroke Pines) and never been… I’ll pay a visit (with a jacket) and try it.
            And yes Penn Dutch has all cuts of meats and excellent selection of seafood. I get the Basa there when it’s on sale.. it’s a chicken tasting fish (according to my husband) and we really love it!

      Jennifer thanks for all the info!! it’s very useful! They really don’t have a strict coupon policy in place (I’ve asked the manager several times and nothing). So I’ve used 2 coupons on BOGO items. But like you that’s not always the case.
      I buy their produce all the time and is happy with the results. I usually get: onions, carrots, celery, tomato, cilantro, plantains, and fruit. But yes, I agree. Publix’s looks a lot better (but sometimes is double the price).
      Again, I wasn’t aware of the shopping times!! I will keep that in mind next time I go shopping! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks again

        Which store do you go to? I go to the one on rock island and southgate and I tried a couple of times with coupons and it was too complicated. I’ve never seen coupon books there either…or seen anyone else use coupons now that I think about it lol
