    In case you didn’t know….this is only working 1 time per card per day!

    • Joanie S

      Let me rephrase…It looks as if you can do 2 or even 3 in one transaction and get $10 or $15 off and the BTFE points, but you can’t do two seperate transactions. Clear as mud? I guess it’s a YMMV thing…

    • Cindy

      Thanks Joanie! I’ll add that in

  • Mina

    Can any one please suugest where / which site I can buy geroceries coupon at reasonable price. I am new to the Internet and coupon world.
    Thanks

  • ronni

    i am going to assume you can come back the next day and do the next one … because I want to use the catalina’s earned to pay for the next and so on. I wonder if they are actually keeping track per the card. I wonder if I can go on the self check line and do a separate transaction. Perhaps it might be best for my hubby to get card a sep. card. That seems to work well at shoprite. I hate when they have offers which they are using to get you in the door and then have all these rules about transactions. They will be getting their money for the items so who cares how many transactions a person does. I think this is there way of making it difficult and stop you from coming in and just getting the deals. They want you purchasing other stuff … ok I got that frustration off my chest and I feel better. thanks for putting these deals together .. they are awesome!!!

  • ronni

    Doesn’t Acme have that only 4 of the same Q’s per item. That will also be a thorn in the side w/this deal. For the granola bars you can substitute one or more for the nut clusters .. they are the same price and the Q is $1 so the deal works out the same but you are not using 5 of the same Q .. assuming your store has this rule.
    The soup will present a problem with the 5 q’s too.
    Does anyone know if the nature valley granola thins are a part of this … there is .75 off Q for 1 and that would make a nice deal.
    There are so many possibilities that are keeping my interest peeked and not allowing me to throw in the towel trying to bypass all the rules. My Acme is 5 minutes away- looks like I will be there a lot this week!!

    Acme doesn’t limit like coupons however the store manager can override that decision. I stumbled upon that info on one of the billion blogger sites I read. Anyway I had issues using 4 like before and when the sup came over I asked what the limit was. I figured 4 was a safe bet since that’s the limit at most stores. She wouldn’t answer me and then I read about unlimited online.

    The Nut Clusters work for the Nature Valley cat too. 😉

    You can stack your deals in one order for the GM discount but not for the multiple cats included in the sale.

  • Melissa

    I was at Acme today and bought 30 items and saved $15 instantly and received 3—50 box tops. I did self checkout and the cashier noticed I was using coupons and did come over and check them. He wasn’t concerned with if they said don’t double—whew!! but he did say they limit like coupons to 10

  • julie burt

    Did anyone else have problems with this one? I was just at Acme and tried the bisquick and chex mix scenario. It was the only thing in my transaction so it should have come up free. But when I started using my coupons the register added the $5 back! I even tried to add a filler item and it still didn’t work. Luckily I have a very nice customer service department who just gave me the $5.

  • Stephanie

    Deal worked great for me and also included all the character fruit snacks that were not marked. My daugther loves the my little pony and bugs fruit snacks. Used my catalina from the other day and rolled it today… paid $8 today and got $4.50 back 🙂

    I just got home from acme. They had Kraft 16oz ranch dressings for $1.34 each. I remembered that I had a few $1 off coupons that were expiring in a few days, i scored them for .34 each! Oh yea, and most of them had save .35 peelies on them just in case you didnt have a coupon. Thats still a good deal! It was the Ranch dressing only though–
