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.May 31, 2017 at 1:50 pm #72535
the combo is actually in this week’s ad: page 4. curiously, it specifies Vanilla and Mocha flavors on the Frappuccino, with either flavor on the rolls. also, 4-pack 6.5 fl oz Doubleshot is an option; i thought 4-pack iced coffee was the alternative to frappuccinos at one point.
given my success on May 7, these combos don’t need to be in any ad to work. however, if the flavor limitation is indeed truthful, you might need an ad to know which ones to buy.
