120 Free Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (Lucky Supermarket)

If you have a Lucky supermarket near you, this week (until Tuesday November 9) you can get free Pillsbury Grands biscuits. I ended up buying 120 today worth $238.80 getting them all for free:

If you would like to take advantage of this deal for yourself or your local food bank, this is how it is done. The Pillsbury Grands biscuits are on sale for $0.99 this week. There are $1.00 off 2 Pillsbury Grand biscuits coupons from the Safeway $70 Refrigerated items coupon booklet (top coupon — was found in Safeway last month – they are no longer in the aisle, but some stores still have a few at the customer service desk if you ask for it) or in the new Safeway Thanksgiving coupon book that is starting to show up in Safeway stores now (bottom coupon)

Pillsbury coupons

If you buy 6, the price comes to $5.94 (6 x $0.99). Using 3 of the $1.00 off 2 Pillsbury Grand biscuits coupons brings the price down to $2.94 ($5.94 – $3.00). There is currently a Catalina Coupon running (the coupons that come out at the register when you pay) where you get $3.00 off when you purchase 6 Pillsbury refrigerated items:

The first time you do this deal, you will need to pay $2.94, but you will get a $3.00 coupon back that you can use for anything on your next shopping trip. If you decide to buy another 6 Pillsbury Grands biscuits, you hand over 3 $1.00 off 2 Pillsbury Grand biscuits coupons and the $3.00 Catalina coupon and you get them for free (and get another $3.00 off your next purchase coupon). Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

I did this 20 times to get 120 packages of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits for free:

I then took these to the Milpitas food bank where they were immediately put out front:

Note: If you can’t find the $1.00 off 2 coupons, many of the Grands biscuits have a peelie $0.55 off 2 Pillsbury Grands Biscuits coupon stuck on their side. This would make them $0.22 each.

Since this deal lasts until November 9th and these coupons are currently available at Safeway, I will try and get some more this week. Readers and I have now donated a total of $19,338.35 worth of food. If you would like to help out Penny Experiment, we’d love to have you participate. Not only will you be helping your local food bank, you will learn to save a significant amount on your own grocery shopping.

    Thank you so much for this information! I just got back from my shopping trip where I bought 72 cans and paid $2.94 and I will also be going back on Monday to do more. I also thought you would know like to know the check out lady told me there was a guy in the store the other day who cleaned out the whole store. When she asked him what he was going to do with them he said “donate them to the food shelter”. I think she was floored that we would “buy” so many to donate to others! Thank you once again!

    Hmmm, I wonder if it was me — I always talk to the store manager and make sure to leave plenty until the next shipment comes so others can buy as well, so I never clean out stores. However, I do buy a lot (including stock in the back when available) so there may be the impression that I clean out a store. I actually hope that there is a third person besides you and me doing this – the more the merrier 🙂

    Well if it was in Livermore Lucky’s then it was you 🙂

  4. admin says:


    Yep, that most likely would have been me (I believe I picked up 6 cases there, but I did leave three cases for others as well). Glad to hear you will be going back on Monday for more. If you end up donating them, don’t forget to add them to the Penny Experiment total: http://www.pennyexperiment.com/donation-submission/

    We will make sure to do the submission. I also wanted to tell you, you can get free hot chocolate right now at walmart. In the Safeway Thanksgiving coupon book they have a $1.00 off Swiss Miss Hot chocolate. Take that Coupon to walmart which has it on sale (the 10 1 oz enevelopes) for 2 for $2.00. 2 coupons = free hot chocolate. We just “bought” 11 boxes. Not sure how long the sale is going on for. Just thought you would like to know.

    Oh good – I figured that coupon would result in free hot chocolate, but thought it might not be until December. I’ve never couponed at Walmart before, but may have to get a some if I run across one. Thank you for the heads up.

    Maybe you have already explained this in a previous post, but how are you getting so many of the (pilsburry) manufacturer coupons to get all the biscuits for free? I’m new to this! 🙂

  8. admin says:


    They are available in the Safeway Thanksgiving coupon booklets – most Safeways currently have tons of them all over their stores so you can get as many as you need or want.

    I just wanted to say BRAVO to you both for doing such a nice thing for others! No Lucky’s here or I’d jump right in with you both! Keep it going!! =)

    PS- Your e-mails/website are a life saver!

    Haha, that’s fantastic! To bad I don’t have a Lucky nearby (and I’m a little late anyway). I can only imagine the cashier’s reactions… 🙂
