It's definitely shoppers advantage at Raley's/Belair and Safeway this weekend.
Before you do anything else, go to www.sacbee.com and click on the red Raley's ad (top of right corner of the home page) and print out that $20 off (when you spend $100) coupon. And here's an idea. Take that $20 coupon to to the deli counter this weekend and pre-order your Thanksgiving dinner (details below). Raley's is offering a "premium" dinner for $99.99, which becomes an $80 meal when you use the coupon. Or, you can pre-order the "Butterball" turkey dinner for $49.99 and spend another $50 to get your $20 off. Any way you slice it, the deal is a good one.
