  • Jules

    AWESOME! anyone know the size of this freezer?

    • Christine

      5.2 cubic feet and has one slidable/removable basket.

  • anita

    How.big is the freezer?

  • Larisha

    Welcome! I wanted everyone to enjoy the sale…

    Jules…it is 5.2 cu ft

  • Maryann

    this is an awesome deal, Im going to call and ask the size

  • cc

    Better deal if y have a $5 off $75 coupon which u can get it on eBay.

  • Larisha

    The size is 5.2 cu ft

  • Jules

    30w 22 d 34 h… just called 🙂

  • Maryann

    I called a nj store and she said the freezer is 5.2 cubic feet she the only label on it she could find says “I-con” no other brand names she could find.

  • Steffy

    ^ like Jules I’d like to know the size or any other information – make/model of the freezer and if there is an expiry to this deal (or is it while supplies last) as the circular doesn’t mention it.

    If it’s something I can’t fit in the Camry I need to arrange alternate transportation. And if its something I can fit in a sedan then … is it worth getting? Might eat up more electricity instead of saving me $$ on my stockpile!

    Thanks in advance!

    • Lady J

      you can fit quite a bit in a Camry. I went to Sears to pick up this huge stationary walking machine. The guys in pick up were laughing when they saw my Camry, but fold the seats down, and it fit. They stoped laughing quickly.

    • bobbi

      be sure that if the freezer is tilted (more than 45 degrees), you let it sit upright for 24 hours before plugging it in.

    • Jill


      I bought this yesterday, I couldn’t be happier. My freezer is packed to the brim because of all of Cindy’s deals (not that I’m complaining!). I put this downstairs in our basement last night and let it freeze and this morning I’m going to fill it up with all of my meat products. The size is 5.2 cu feet, and it is not too large. It is not a name brand, but looks just fine. It comes with a one year limited warranty and all of those fantastic coupons! The energy consumption was a huge concern of mine BUT to my surprise it has an energyguide inside and says that is costs $26/ year to operate, depending on your utility rates and use, and the estimated yearly electricity use is 247 kWh. Thank you Larisha and Cindy! I’ve been waiting for a freezer for a year and I couldn’t pass up this deal!

      Be sure to call the store you are planning on going to beforehand. I called the Freehold store to get some info and this was their last one, I drove there right away and snapped it up. Good luck ladies and happy freezing!

  • Suzanne

    One of the coupon books — either Entertainment or the KidsStuff book has coupons for Acme — i.e. Spend $50 get $5 off, etc.

    • Jin

      Its the Kid stuff nothing in the entertainment book.

      • Suzanne

        If anyone wants my acme coupons from the KidStuff book, just email me thru this website.

        • sonila

          i would like to receive the acme coupons, please.

    I saw it in the store last week and it is very small for me but not bad if its just a 2 family household – use it for say just meat or so…

  • Christine

    Just picked mine up woo hoo

  • Michele

    I was just coming to let everyone know this great deal but it seems the secret is out. I have this one as a back up to my second one. So I decided we would use it strictly for breakfast items. In the cool weather it will cost pennies per day to use so in the summer I will make sure to consolidate if the other freezers have the room. My second freezer is 10 years old so that one actually cost more to run but I’ve been worried about it working properly ever since Cindy’s broke a few months back. Great deal to pass up! I highly recommend getting it if you need one.

  • Brenda

    BOO HOO NO ACMES HERE- that is small but i only have the freezer on my side by side so anything would have helped….

  • Anonymous

    Thank you for the heads up on this deal…I just got back from getting mine…Had to drive 25 miles to the Acme, but thats ok…Thanks again!!

  • Sebsa

    FWIW, I was at Shaws yesterday and they seem to be doing the same deal. The freezer they had is an Energy Star (yay!) and the annual operating cost was listed at $26.

  • Lady J

    Cindy (or whoever can answer),

    I am interested in a stand up freezer. I’d like to store it in a closet, so it’s out of sight. Anyway, have you done any research? Do you have any suggestions or recommendations. I do have 2 freezers because I have 2 refrigerators. I am an excellent packer, but they are both full. I have never owned a unit that was just a freezer, but am very seriously considering it.

    I hear that with stand-alone freezers, you must keep a bucket under them and empty it every few days to catch drippings? Is this true? Because, I can’t see myself doing this.

    • Colleen

      I have a stand up freezer and chest freezer and never had to empty either. My chest freezer is fairly new though and is manual defrost so I will probably have to defrost that at some point. My stand up is auto defrost so maybe that’s why I do not need to empty dripping?

    • Laura D.

      Huh?? Bucket?? What a chore!
      I have an upright freezer, LOVE IT! I’ve had it for over 10 years now, before that my parents had it for 5 years. NO BUCKET!! 🙂 NEVER once has there been water dripping from underneath it. There is NO drip pan. Works great. I have to defrost it once a year. I also clean it at the same time. Takes 1 1/2 hours total from start to finish. I do use those aluminum catering deep pans to put onto every shelf as it defrosts to catch the ice & water drippings. It’s faster & easy to dump the water & ice outside. I try to pick a hot day to do it, mine is in one of my garages next to my shelving units. So I pop open the garage door to let the warm weather help me out, if I’m in a rush I’ll also use my blow dryer to help speed to defrosting process.

      If the bucket thing is something new, like for a “self defrosting freezer”?? I don’t think that is a good idea. I have relatives who are farmers and freeze items for the year. Number one freezer rule for food safety is the full size freezer (not your fridge/ freezer) should never turn itself off to “defrost”. The temperature has to go down to far in order to be successful in removing frost and it compromises the quality of the food. HTH!

  • nick

    Is this freezer frost free?

    • Christine

      No. When I was pricing freezers at Sears, the man there told me there was no such thing as a frost free chest freezer. Not sure if that was true, or Sears didn’t have any.

  • jennifer

    I just brought mine home too!! Woo. Great coupons. I’ve been looking for a nice freezer for some time now. Good size too!!

  • Brandon

    Is this really a good deal though. I have been waiting to buy a freezer but is this a good price for the freezer considering I’m not going to use 80% of the items included here – if I were to go to best buy and buys freezer like this what would it cost?

  • Christine

    I have a ?? If I use one of the free coupons and a manufactures coupon is there any benefit to that ?

    • Christine

      Absolutely! As long as one coupon is a store coupon and one is a manufacturer coupon, you can “stack” them and use both!

      • Christine

        DISCLAIMER…IF your store coupon policy alows it. Only one of my stores does. You may be better off using a BOGO coupon for the exact same item. Then you get 2 items for free.

  • Anyone know the closet Acme to CT. ? You guys inNJ are sooo lucky! Better coupons better sales .Makes me want to pack up and move.

    • julie

      I just looked on their web site locator. Closest one is Clifton, NJ – 86 miles!!

    • Kelly

      HA!!! That is so ironic. Most of my friends have moved OUT of Jersey because of the ridiculous property taxes and car insurance rates!

  • Closest

  • Christine

    So grateful for this site. I was on my way to Home Depot for a freezer when I saw this site. Perfect timing! The itemized list of coupons was the deciding factor. I don’t shop at Acme (too expensive), but this was worth it. Keep up the good work and a big thanks to Larisha for taking the time to list all the coupons.

  • Payton

    omg i could cry!! the hubby ordered me a new stand-up freezer the end of last week..we just installed it last night!!!

  • Jennifer K.

    Excellent timing! I was just talking to the hubster this morning about how we need a small freezer. We have two refrigerators (one in the kitchen and one on the back porch that we only use in the summer for drinks) and both of the freezers are small. I can’t even buy ice cream right now because both of the freezers are packed so tight – and sometimes you just really need ice cream.

  • lisa

    I live in NJ, Burl Co. and called and went to a few today, finally found 2 left at the Maple Shade store and walked in behind a nice woman who was purchasing the other one…said she saw it on here, and had to go out to get it and we high fived. i love it!!! hope she sees this post =) so we both walked away with the last two in that store. (store model still left i hear there and at Burlington Store)….Thanks again Cindy I know this is going to help me and my hubby cut corners with freezing more stuff now =)

  • Sarah

    I was able to get one after work today after calling around! Has anyone started matching BOGO and other coupons to these great coupons to make it an even bigger score?

  • Betsy

    Anyone know if the coupons for free stuff requires a minimum purchase or other requirements? I dont shop at Acme very often (hardly ever) and want to make sure the coupons are worthwhile.


  • Anonymous
