Mid-Week Update

I love when stores offer freebies when you purchase certain products. The trick is though to make sure you can use the products they are offering, match with coupons and buy the minimum amount required and not to buy stuff you don't need. I did the Cedar Point deal this week because we use those Kraft products and the ticket is for my mother in law, who wants to go to Cedar Point. The ticket does expire July 31, so that's something to keep in mind if you want to do this deal.

Here is what I bought to get the Cedar Point ticket:

  • Kraft dressing, 2/$4- bought 2= $4.00 (had a 75¢ coupon)
  • Kraft Handisnacks pudding, $1.64 x 3= $4.92
  • Jello boxes, .45 each, bought 24 boxes= $10.80- 3.00 in coupons ($1/6 jello boxes)= $7.80
  • Crystal Light, $2.79
  • Ritz Crackers, 2/$4- bought 2= $4- $1 coupon= $3.00
  • Chips Ahoy, 2/$4- bought 2= $4.00
  • Capri Sun, $2.25
  • Cool Whip, 2/$2, bought (4)= $4- (2) 20¢ coupons= .40 off= $3.20
  • Kraft Cheese, bought (2)= $4.00

Total $40.76 before coupons, $35.21 after coupons. I had to go to customer service for the coupon, but it was worth it!

Meijer- free Kodak disposable cameras:

The list of products are on pg.13, which includes Kraft Pasta Salad, Kraft Barbecue Sauce, Jet Puffed Marshmallows, Kool-Aid and more. Here is one way to get the deal. Purchase (15) cookies and (5) crackers totaling $20.00. You'll receive (4) Kodak fun saver cameras. You'll also receive a $5.00 catalina off your next Meijer purchase. I haven't done this offer yet, but I'm hoping too!
