I'm So Loving Acme!

Old Navy - my sisters and I got to the store around 9:30 this morning. I was expecting the store to be mobbed but we were the only ones looking at the tank tops.
  • 5 tank tops $2 each (sale price, today only)
  • Used 10% coupon, total was $9
Then we headed over to Panera for breakfast. Since my sister is a manager, we got free grub! You know I like the sound of that. :)
Acme - sorry for all the sun glare in this shot. I did two transactions here and will submit for one rebate at my address and one at DBF's address.

One:
  • 2 Easy Mac cups $1 each, used BOGO coupon (6/21 Parade magazine in the paper *one per customer/transaction) = $1
  • 5 Velveeta shells & cheese cups $1 each, used one $0.55 coupon (doubled to $1.10), one BOGO coupon and one coupon for two FREE cups (got these from a home mailer, other coupons in 8/9 SS) = $0.90
  • 2 Wheat Thins $2 each and 2 Crystal Lites $2 each, used two $2 coupons (WYB Wheat Thins and Crystal Lite - tearpad found in A&P ages ago) = $6
  • 2 Crystal Lites $2 each, used two $1 coupons (printables no longer available) = $2
  • Grapes $2.15 ($0.97/lb)
  • 2 Tidy Cats litter pads $4.99 each, used two $1 coupons (8/9 RP) = $7.98 or $3.99 each
  • Used three $5 cats and $2 cat, total was $2.93

Got back $5 cat and $1 cat (for Velveeta) and will submit for $20 rebate. OOP on Kraft/Nabisco items was $9.90 so $16.10 profit

Then we bought

  • 2 Easy Mac cups $1 each, used BOGO coupon (6/21 Parade magazine in the paper *one per customer/transaction) = $1
  • 6 Jello Puddings $1 each, used two $1 off 3 coupons (printables no longer available) = $4
  • 2 Wheat Thins $2 each, used two $1 coupons (printables no longer available) = $2
  • Capri Sun $2, used $0.75 coupon (tearpad found in A&P ages ago) = $0.50
  • 4 Kraft shredded cheeses $1.66 each, used two $1 off 2 coupons (8/9 RP) = $4.64
  • Tidy Cats litter pads $4.99, used $1 coupons (8/9 RP) = $3.99
  • Used three $5 cats, $1 cat and $0.50 cat, total was $1.01

Got back $5 cat and will submit for $20 rebate. OOP on Kraft/Nabisco items was $12.14 so $12.86 profit

Even if you don't have all these coupons, the deal is that if you spend $25 on participating items, you get back a $5 cat and qualify for the $20 rebate (form prints at checkout), so you get free groceries. You can't lose!

The Nabisco rebate says that the mac and cheese cups can only be easy mac. Just wanted to give you a heads up in case you are counting the velveeta cups in your rebate.

Tosha,
Oh I know, Panera is so yummy! I used to eat there a lot in my pre-hounding days.

Amiyrah,
They are all listed on the receipt as "Kraft Mac & Cheese" so I'm not worried about it.
