I was supposed to get a $3 off next order from the Catalina for buying 5 Kraft Cheeses. That's why so much cheese. I took advantage of 3 of the Free Product with purchases of 3 Kraft, Nabisco or Oscar Meyer Products. I was going to use it for the next transaction but I was handed a $4 off next order of $45. This threw me off a bit but it was more then I expected. Of course after sales and coupons the next transaction came to $39.99!

Prices shown are after sale price and coupon:
2 Chi-Chi's Salsa 16 oz $1.17 each
3 Knorr's Sides $.88 each
Treasure Cove Feta Cheese $1.29

Now the cashier gives me my $3 catalina coupon for all the cheese I bought and I have a coupon for $4 off $45. I went to customer service and asked if I bought $5.01 more can I use the coupon and she said yes.

3rd Transaction
2 Bags Martins Chips $2.50 on sale and coupon
Solo Heavy Duty 110 cnt plates $3.27 after $2 off coupon I had been hanging onto because I heard Walmart had them on sale for $2 and some scents but I couldn't find them.
$8.59-$4=$4.59

I was afraid to use the $4 and the $3 coupon together so...
4th transaction
3 cans Chef-Boy-RD $1 each
Free after Coupon.

I figure I saved 37% this trip and now we have some food to eat, yeah!

Just in case you didn't know, Kool-aid packs are Kraft products...I used all 5 of those coupons from the all you magazine this month for the free items, and only spent $3 OOP for 15 packs of Kool-aid (20 cents each).

Jen,
Thanks for mentioning this. Yes, you can buy 3 packs of kool-aid to get the free product. I did this for the Planters coupons so I have enough kool-aid. I also needed to buy kraft cheese to get money back on my next purchase, plus I just plain needed some food :-) I just wish I had had more coupons for the cheese.
