Cheese, Glorious Cheese!

Acme - should have paid attention to the Acme deals earlier in the week! This deal is only good through today
  • 6 bags Kraft 2% shredded cheese $2 each, got back $10 catalina for spending $25 (based on regular prices) and $3 catalina for buying Kraft = $1 profit

Second transaction - self-checkout cashier was cool and didn't care that I did this back-to-back

  • 6 bags Kraft 2% shredded cheese $2 each, got back $10 catalina for spending $25 (based on regular prices) and $3 catalina for buying Kraft = $1 profit - gave these to my parents so they're not in the pic
  • Bananas $0.60 - $0.25 a pound! Wowsers!
  • Acme cream cheese $1.50
  • Used $10 cat and $3 cat from transaction one, total was $1.10

Third transaction

  • 3 Acme cream cheese $1.50 each, $4.50
  • 4 Daisy sour creams $1.69 each, $6.76
  • Grapes $1.56, $0.99 a pound
  • Tic tacs $0.50
  • Used $10 cat and $3 cat from transaction two, total was $0.36
Walgreens - did first transaction yesterday when the Irish Spring RR was still rolling, its not anymore :(
  • 2 Garnier Fructis conditioners $2.99 each, used two $1 coupons (1/4 or 3/8 RP) and $2 WAG coupon (give second, in Easy Saver book, scans 2x automatically) = $0.02 profit
  • Irish Spring body wash $4.49, used RR for free one from yesterday and got another RR for free one = FREE
  • 3 rolls Scotch mailing paper $5.98
  • Used $3 RR and $3 RR, total was $1.11

Bought today

  • 4 cases Diet Coke $13 or $3.25 each, got back $3 RR for buying four = $2.50 each
  • Irish Spring body wash $4.49, used RR for free one from yesterday (no new RR) = FREE
  • Used $8 RR and $3.50 RR, total was $2.11

Different store

  • 4 cases Diet Coke $13 or $3.25 each, got back $3 RR for buying four = $2.50 each
  • 2 Garnier Fructis conditioners $2.99 each, used two $1 coupons (1/4 or 3/8 RP) and $2 WAG coupon (give second, in Easy Saver book, scans 2x automatically) = $0.02 profit
  • 4 Glucerna cereals (in aisle w/diabetes monitors, not nutritional shakes) $4.99 each, used three $5 coupons and got back $7 RR (WYB 4) and will submit for $1 rebate on each box = $6.04 profit
  • Used $8 RR and $8 RR, total was $3.27

*If you use four Glucerna coupons, the last one will probably beep. If you get a nice cashier who'll adjust it down, go for it! I knew this store wouldn't so I didn't even bother trying. I also got back a $3 off 3 Glucerna coupon that I might use on another transaction.

The Glucerna RR deal is good until the end of the month and the $4.99 is the regular price, so no need to rush.

that glucerna deal is awesome, right? I was so happy to post it on the boards today. At my WAGs the cereal was with the ensure and glucerna shakes, so it might be a YSMV(your store may vary) situation.

LOL at your post title! I pre-wrote a post for TMI on Wednesday with the exact same title, except it deals with the Kraft catalina deal at Jewel. Great minds, right?!

Amiyrah,
It definitely is! I was only able to print three coupons. The website wouldn't let me print any at home or at my boyfriend's so I guess I'm done with it.

Amanda,
haha, that's too funny! I'm hoping this same deal might come to some of the other supermarkets in my area. Fingers crossed!
