Mac and Cheese at Albertson's

Sometimes it takes some extra help for me to go take advantage of a deal. Consider this your extra help.
Today at Albertson's I bought 6- 5 packs of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. They are priced at $5.69 and are BUY 1 GET 1 FREE! Plus on each package there is a Peelie for a Free Pack of Capri Sun.

So here's the math
6- 5 packs of Mac and Cheese B1G1 $5.69 (for 2)
Use this Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Coupon!
Total: $ 15.77
Plus 6 FREE Capri Sun Boxes
PLUS get a $2 Catalina when you buy 6
Final Price Per Box: $.45

$14 is an awesome price for 30 boxes of Mac and Cheese and 6 boxes of Capri Sun!!

I bought two 5-packs of M&C and still got the $4 catalina.

Cassy said...

oops, I meant $2

Proud Mom of 5 said...

The catalina will actually print when you just get 2 5-packs and 2 capri suns, so you can do them in separate transactions. You don't have to buy 6 5-packs for the catalina, just 6 boxes. So if you do 3 transactions, each with 2 5-packs and 2 capri suns and then roll your catalinas, you will spend only #13.07 plus tax. Now that is a great deal!

Hang on a Sec! You only need to buy 2 5 packs of Mac and Cheese???!!!? Why didn't I know this?!??! Thanks so much! :)
(Although, now I feel like I missed out on $4-- Dang!!)

Couponeer said...

I know there is a coupon floating around out there that is $2 off when you buy a 10 pk of Capri Sun and Chips A'hoy. Has anyone tried to use it with this deal?

Leslie said...

the b3g1 free coupon will only take off $1.30 off...a discount is a discount i guess....

Jefferey and Victoria said...

If the coupon is buy 3 get one free... is that per box or per pkg?

Leslie said...

oh yeah is this going to be a deal you can roll the catalinas back into a duplicate transaction.

I just did the deal for 2 M&C and get the capri sun. I started the process to start getting my $2 catalina and then my last transaction I used bought 3 of caprisuns(2 of them free) and got the free box of chips ahoy. So after the $2 catalina the extra caprisun was only $1.99

Nichole said...

If only we had Albertson's!

Malinda said...

I did the same thing as Heather (but without the coupon). I felt great about the $2 catalina until I found out that it could have been $6! Live and learn.

Genessa said...

So if I do it the way that Proud mom of 5 said will the buy three get one free coupons still work since they are talking about the individual boxes?

Jennifer said...

Yep, I went last night and bought 2 5 packs. I used the peelies and got 2 capri suns for free and then a $2.00 catalina printed. It was the best deal i've gotten all week!

Bambi said...

Why did my catalina not print out when I bought the 2 5 packs?

The Cannons said...

I tried to use the buy 3 get one free at the Albertson's on Ustick and 5 mile and they wouldn't let me use it. I had two managers come over. Oh well, it's still a good deal right? I wish I would have done the transactions separately.

Jefferey and Victoria said...

so could we... buy 4- 5 packs and use 5 coupons for buy 3 get 1 free?

The Marshall's said...

I bought 2-5 packs of M&C and got 2 free Capri Suns but no catalina printed. I went to the Albertson's on Eagle Road and McMillan

Emily said...

I bought 6 mac and cheese with the 6 capri suns for free and I didn't get a catalina. Which stores are the catalinas printing? I went to the Albertsons in Downtown Meridian yesterday and they said the catalinas hadn't been printing.

Lindsey said...

can you use 2 2$ catalinas on one purchase?

Shannon said...

Went last night to the Cherry lane and Ten mile Albertsons and bought 2 5 pk Mac and cheese and 2 capri suns and got the $2 cat. After the $2 cat it ends up being 3.69 before tax. 4.33 with tax. I did it 3 times went to the car loaded my stuff turned around went back in bought 3 more after realizing what a great deal. The tree top was also 1.48. Had a double from mail paid .96 for 2 tree top juices. Did this 3 times. I was loving Albies last night. They had a big display back by the meat. Look at the mac boxes before the check out. Some people snag some of the peelies. Gurr!

Jennifer said...

I was at the Gary Ln/State Albertsons when I got my $2 catalina for buying 2 five packs. This was last night (wednesday).

Brian and Lindsay said...

The Albertsons in Pocatello was out of catalina paper, so I should have gotten $6 in catalinas and didn't. Is there any way to get them after the fact?

Beth said...

I went to 17th and State this morning and none of my catalinas printed.

Andrea said...

Yes, you can get your catalinas after the fact! If your catalinas do not print, call the catalina company. You will need your receipt, and they can figure out why it didn't print. Sometimes the printers are offline, out of paper, or maybe you bought the wrong products. They will mail you the catalina. The phone number is 1-888-8coupon. Good Luck!

I just did this deal at Albertsons on Milwaukee and Cole. They are well stocked as you walk in the door. They have the coupons behind the counter because people have been stealing them but they were really nice about getting them and asking how many I needed. They would not take the coupon though. Still a great deal on things we use.

Emily said...

Thanks Shannon,
I went to the Ten Mile and Cherry store and the catalina printed out perfectly!

I live in Twin, and our Albertson' still had plenty in stock. Make sure you grab the Sunrise Flavor of capri suns, and no other. Will save you lots of Hassle. I purchased 3 5packs of mac n cheese, recieved 3 5packs free, received 6 boxes of sunrise capri suns and paid $13 and something sense. My Albertsons accepted the buy 3 mac n cheese get one free. So I only ended up paying for 2 5packs and got the rest free. yeehaw! Plus the $2 Catalina.

The Albertsons at State and Glenwood would not allow me to use the coupon. It was still a great deal to pay $5.69 and get 10 boxes of mac-n-cheese, 2 boxes of Capri Suns, and $2 catalina.

I went to the Caldwell Albertson's by the college and bought 2 5-packs, got 2 free, and got 4 boxes of Capri Suns. I did two transactions and got two $2 catalinas. I was able to get any kind of Capri Sun I wanted, not just the sunrise favors. Also, a Kellogg's sales rep had been in and the manager was handing out cereal coupons, so I also got 16 boxes of cereal for $0.88 each, and an 18-pack of eggs for every two boxes of cereal. (14.08 for 16 boxes of awesome Kellogg's cereal and 12 dozen eggs!!!) He only had a handful of the coupons and dispersed them on a first come, first served basis. I'm so thankful I was in the right place at the right time!
