From the KCL inbox: Cantelope at WinCo and Free Water at Albertsons

We love all your emails! We got some especially good ones yesterday that I wanted to share:

I was just at Win-Co and they have cantaloupe on sale for 33 cents each for the first 3!



UPDATE: This water deal expired 8/6

If you buy four boxes of General Mills bars, you get a free multi pack of water. Both the Chex Mix and the Fiber One that are part of the current GM $15 Catalina promotion qualify. The Catalina that prints out gives you a free multi pack of water valued up to $4.50. At least at my Albertson's, the coupon took off the entire $4.50 even though the water that I chose was less money.

I bought eight boxes of bars as part of my $30 total, with coupons (I could print the coupons for the bars multiple times.)
4 boxes of Chex Mix Bars $4.00 (after catalina savings)
$0.60/1 - Chex Mix Bars - (coupons.com)
$0.60/1 - Chex Mix Bars - (pillsbury.com)
$0.60/1 - Chex Mix Bars - (bettycrocker.com)
$0.60/1 - Chex Mix Bars - (boxtops4education.com)

Pay $1.60 or $0.40 each, plus receive catalina for free water (up to $4.50)
4 boxes of Fiber One Bars $4.00 (after catalina savings)
$0.40/1 - Fiber One Chewy Bars - (coupons.com)
Final Price: $1.60 or 0.60 each, plus receive catalina for free water (up to $4.50)

out of curiosity- on my ad ( I live in ca) it shows these as 2 for $6-- even with coupon that would be 2.40 a piece? am I missing something? I am not sure how you got them to be $.40 each? help please :)

Spencer said...

That's interesting about the water coupon giving you the full $4.50. I got a similar coupon for milk last week when I bought four GM cereals. Anyone know if that milk coupon works the same way?

Jennifer said...

Is the $15 promo over in CA? I thought it ended yesterday here. Am I wrong?

Amy said...

Actually, the free water Catalina will print if you buy any combination of 4 boxes of Fiber one or Chex mix bars. I did it twice yesterday with two of the Albertsons $30 scenarios.

I'm not really sure about the rest of the west coast, but I know the Albertsons $15 Catalina deal is going here through Saturday, at least.

My math comes up a little different with these. They're 2/$5 where I live, and with the Cat, it brings them down to $1.25 each. The .60 off the Chex bars brings it down to .65 and an Albertsons doubler would bring it down to .05 a box! Of course I can only use two doublers per transaction (I didn't get the other ones in our mailer this week) so if you average that out with the four boxes per transaction (to get the water Catalina) I'm coming up with .35 per box... and free water...not bad! I love couponing!!!

If you buy 8 boxes will two catalinas print?

Modern Day Mom said...

I want to know the same thing as Heatherlynn - did you purchase your 8 boxes in two transactions with 4 boxes per transaction to get two Cats or did you get 2 cats with 8 boxes in one transaction? thanks.

This water catalina also prints out with the Curves bars. I have seen these on clearance for $1 at several stores. The Curves bars aren't in the $30/$15 promo, but are still also a decent deal. :)

I bought 12 boxes of Chex bars in one transaction. 3 water catalinas printed out for the water and arrowhead water will be on sale Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. That was Albies on 5 mile and Overland.

Leslie said...

Yeah I had this cat print out and I wasn't sure what triggered it! Thanks for finding out!

Ellas Mom said...

Spencer- Yes the milk cat acts the same way. It's basically a $4.50 cat no matter how expensive your milk/water is. :)

I bought 8 boxes and the Catalina didn't print. But then again, my $15 didn't print either. (I don't think her catalina machine was working) The cashier gave me some $15 coupons, but I didn't know about the water catalina...guess I will call them. Thanks for the info!

Amy said...

Can you tell me which Albertsons printed the $4.50 catalina? I bought 4 boxes of GM bars and nothing printed. I tried calling the Catalina company and they were not helpful so I called the Albies store and they could find nothing about that promotion! Really frustrating! Not sure what to do next. Thanks.

Proud Mom of 5 said...

Per Catalina company and Albertsons...this promo ended on Wednesday the 5th. Bummer!

Spencer said...

Thanks Ellas Mom! That is a sweet coupon.

heatherlf said...

Dang I went today to do this and talked to another couponer in the store that told me this ended so I didn't try and now I see that it has.

Modern Day Mom said...

I did this deal in Clarkston, WA today and it didn't print the Catalinas.... probably not working in the Northern Idaho, Eastern Washington area....

Sara said...

I was so excited to get the free water, but my 4 boxes I bought yesterday didn't bring up the water catalina...now everyone is saying it's over. Uggh, very frustrating! I would have got other things instead of the granola bars had I known.
