for a couple years or more, Jewel has had a deal where you buy a 4-pack of 9.5oz Starbucks Frappuccino bottles, and get a selected bakery item free. the deal lasts for about 2-3 months per item, then it rotates to something else. the bakery item is generally on sale for $1.99 during this stretch, though that alone doesn’t mean it’s in a pairing.
are there any currently? i ask because i’m considering buying the Frappuccino as part of the buy-6-save-$3 mix-and-match sale, but don’t know what to pair with it. my main store is bad on signage; i didn’t even know the La Brea original English muffins a couple months back were part of a promotion until 1-2 weeks into it. then the sign for the 4-count honey buns was only up briefly. they continued to be $1.99 well after that (and still might be), but i’m not sure whether that means anything. 4-count cinnamon rolls have been going on sale for $1.99 recently, too.
i’ve seen paper “Save $2 off ANY bakery item with frappuccino purchase” coupons stuck to Starbucks in the past, including during a lull in the specific pairing promotion a few months ago, but haven’t encountered the coupons either recently.
can anybody at a store with better signage or who has more insight into this promotion comment?

I haven’ seen anything about this promo this year. As far as the system deleting things – I have set the spam filter to its lowest setting now, and it doesn’t delete for punctuation…. I do not know why that happened to you.May 1, 2017 at 4:56 pm #72277
wow, this just affirms how under the radar they’ve been lately. i wonder what their angle is… are they trying to get customers to buy as many bakery items as possible in the hope of winning a $2 lottery? are they conducting a scavenger hunt?
have you noticed paper coupons stuck to any 4-packs this year?
anyway, i think it’s a good idea to have a centralized topic (e.g. this one) where we keep track of this promotion. if different people can “take one for the team” by buying a suspected bakery item (they’re usually $1.99 when pairing eligible) when the Starbucks is cheap, and report back. i’m hesitating due to my giant dessert backlog, but $3.99 as part of the Pick 6, and candidate $1.99 cinnamon rolls, are tempting…May 7, 2017 at 4:54 pm #72362
i took one for the team. when your dessert backlog is 700 items, how noticeable is the 701st, really?
the 4-count, 14oz bake shop Cinnamon Rolls, on sale for $1.99, were indeed free with 4-count Starbucks frappuccino on 5/7!
the specific items i got were vanilla on starbucks, and white iced on the rolls — that shouldn’t matter; i’m providing just in case.
end date? who knows. but if price is any indication, the deal started 1-2 weeks ago, and likely took over for Honey Buns then. and if prior promotions are any indication, it’ll last about 2-2.5 months from that beginning.
