Meijer: 1 Trip, 4 Transactions!

I took a picture, but my computer is not cooperating. Sorry. I was all excited to show my picture, too. :( I'll work on it...

I hit Meijer this afternoon--and BOY, did I hit it! I was out by myself and I wanted to do the "Buy 5, Get $5 off" deal. BUT there's only a limit 1! So I just had to go crazy and do 3-4 trips. First, I went in and decided to get 5 things that could sit in the car, while I went and got more. :) Plus some other stuff.

**2 Kraft Dressings $1.58, minus 2 $1.50 coupons. $0.08 each.
**8 Kraft Mac-N-Cheese Singles, minus 2 $2/4 Meijer Mealbox coupons. $4 for 8.
**1 loaf of Meijer wheat bread $0.98.
**1 3lb bag of apples $1.29.
**5 boxes of 100 Calorie Snacks (Nabisco) $2.79 each, minus 5 $1 off Meijer Mealbox coupons, minus 2 $1/2 manu. coupons. MINUS $5 off 5 deal! $1.95!
**2 Healthy Choice Mixers 2/$5, minus 2 $2 off coupons. $0.50 each.

Total after coupons: $10.05
Saved $29.12.

I took that stuff out to the car and turned right back around. :) I had one more trip of things that didn't need refrigerated, so I went for it. I also needed some pop, so I did the Buy 2, Get 3 free deal.

**5 boxes of Kool-Aid Jammers $1.69, minus 2 $1/2 Meijer coupons (only 1 went through, though). $7.45 MINUS $5 off 5. $2.45.
**5 packs of pop (7-Up/Diet Rite brand) $3.98 each. Buy 2, get 3 free. $7.96 for 5 packs.

Total after coupons: $11.14.
Saved: $17.94.

I took all the drinks out to the car. I only wanted to make one more trip so I decided to do a back-to-back transition, cause I still had two $5 off transactions I wanted to do. Thankfully the Fast Lane was open and the check out guy was not mean about doing two transactions.

**1 pack of Weight Watchers ice cream cups $2.50, minus $0.55 off coupon, doubled. $1.50.
**1 box of Nabisco 100 calorie pack snacks $2.79, minus $1 off MMB coupon. MINUS $1 off, from the Buy 5, get $5 off. $0.79!
**2 packs of Kraft singles 2/$4, minus $1/2 manu coupon, minus $1/2 Meijer coupon. MINUS $2 off from the deal. FREE!
**2 Lunchables 2/$4, minus 2 $1 off coupon, minus $1/2 coupon (I don't think this worked). MINUS $2 off for the deal. Free.
**1 package of Healthy Ones lunch meat $1.67, minus $0.55 coupon, doubled. $0.67.

Total after coupons: $2.96.
Saved: $15.50.

Similar transaction, with the 2 Kraft singles, 2 Lunchables, but 1 Kool-Aid jammer instead of 100 cal packs. Singles: Free, Lunchables, Free, Jammers $0.69 after the $5 off/5 items.

Total with tax: $0.74.
Saved: $12.38.

And then I was done! I felt a little crazy doing 4 transactions, but it was my only chance. I knew if I attempted to do ANYTHING like that with my son, I've have no hair left and he'd have no voice left from screaming non-stop for an hour. :)

Totals for the day:
Spent $24.98 for all of the above.
Saved $74.94 on all of the above!

PLUS, GET THIS!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't done the Kraft Rebate deal! So I will save these receipts, plus make a quick trip tomorrow to get some more... 100 calorie packs, probably, cause I can print off some more $1 off Meijer Mealbox coupons, plus I have several more $1/2 manufacturer coupons I can use--from the Kraft coupon/calendar booklet I got in the mail. I should spend another $1.95 for 5 boxes. AND THEN! I'll send in for the $20 REBATE CHECK!! That will be AWESOME! If I added it up right, I spent about $10 on the items needed for the Rebate to work. So that's some major profit!

** You have to buy 10 Nabisco cookies or crackers (the 100 Calorie Packs count), plus 5 beverages (the Kool-Aid Jammers count), and 5 Easy Mac Single Cups to get the $20 rebate. So for 10 100 Calorie Packs it will be $3.90, plus $2.45 for the Jammers, plus $2.50 for the 5 Easy Mac cups. That's $8.85!! Wow! And I will get back a $20 check! What a deal. I'm so EXCITED! Plus the fact that I love the 100 Calorie Packs, my hubby loves the Kool-Aid, and my son loves the Mac-n-Cheese! What an awesome deal. I may just do 4 transactions again tomorrow! :) Maybe not. :)
