If you picked up the new Dominick’s ad recently, you likely noticed that they’re running an excellent “Buy 3 Juices, get 2 FREE Snacks” deal through next Wednesday. There are so many ways to work this sale! But if you like the following scenario, scoot right out to the store before midnight, Saturday night, as it depends on a 3-day sale ending 8/28.
Dominick’s currently has 5-packs of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese on sale for $2.99 through 8/28, limit 2. Many of the 5-packs have peelies on them for “Buy this package of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, get FREE Capri-Sun 10-pack Roaring Waters.”
See where this is going?
Here’s a scenario:
Buy 2 Kraft Mac & Cheese 5-packs [WITH peelies for the Capri-Sun] ($2.99 each)
Buy 2 Capri-Sun Roaring Waters (FREE with peelie coupons)
Buy 4 Mott’s 64oz. apple juices ($2 each – I used two $2-off-2 coupons from the “Make a Muscle” in-store coupon book)
With 6 juices, we’ve now qualified for 4 FREE snacks. I went with the Quaker Chewy granola bars, because on the display for the bars, there was a beautiful tearpad of coupons… “Buy 4 Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, get 1 free gallon Lucerne milk!”
And, note that you can still use coupons on the bars, even though they’ll be free — the register will accept them for overage against your end total. I used two .75-off-2 Quaker Chewy coupons (7/25 RP, 5/2 RP.)
So, after all coupons, I paid $8.48 for ten boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese, 2 Capri-Sun 10-packs, 4 Mott’s Apple Juices, 4 boxes Quaker Chewy granola bars and a gallon of milk! :) While we prefer organic milk, the Lucerne milk is BGH-free, and while it’s been ages since we had non-organic… again, it was FREE. We’ll give it a try.
Another way to work the deal — with 4 Rice Krispie Treats as your free snacks, you can work in those great “$2 off store-brand bread when you buy 2 Rice Krispie Treats” coupons from the “Fuel for School” in-store coupon books, as well as $1-off-2 coupons for the treats themselves from 8/15 RP! That deal will run you $7.98 for ten boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese, 2 Capri-Sun 10-packs, 4 Mott’s Apple Juices, 4 boxes Rice Krispie treats and two loaves of store-brand bread!
Note: I thought of trying to work the “Buy 3 Capri-Sun, get FREE Kool-Aid Fun Fizz” tearpad coupons in here too, but you had to buy 3 Capri-Sun, and the price of the Capri-Sun itself isn’t that great (it’s much cheaper at Jewel this week with the current Kraft Catalina.) But with the $2.99 Mac and Cheese 5-packs, this is a very, very nice deal.
