    sbigham, I believe it was the 8/14 insert, I could be wrong.

  • Nancy Aug 21, 2011

    triplettk, you're right, they rang up at $1, then minus the 50 cents - I typed that up wrong :(

  • sbigham3 Aug 21, 2011

    Which insert for the Mentos q?

  • triplettk Aug 21, 2011

    Maybe I'm wrong, but if the Mentos are $1 after the mega discount then they should ring up at 1.50 each = $15 - $5 mega discount = $10 - three $1/3 qs = $7 for 10 packs?

    Nice one Nancy.

    Now *I* got excited at the Lawry's Marinade, 99 cents after megasale discount. There were $1 off 1 Lawry's Marinade bottle toppers a while back, and I still have a couple, so they'll be FREE.

    Also the Chi Chi's salsa, there's a 50 coupon from one of the inserts, after it doubles, after megasale, it's 49 cents a jar.

    Salsa to go with the mountain of nachos I'm making with free Sargento from SD? Aw yeah.

    Also, another good Mega item is the Milo's Kitchen dog snacks (small bag) at $1.99 ea after 50 cent Mega discount (lots of 10 mix/match items).

    Use the $1 coupon from inserts past couple weeks and when you buy 2, you get a $1 CAT OYNO print out at the register, making them essentially 50 cents each.

    Excellent deal on Mento 15 piece gum.

    It's part of the Mega sale and they're priced $1.00 ea (after 50 cent discount).

    Here's how you can do it if your Kroger allows more than two coupons of the same (FV still does).

    Buy 10 Mentos gums = $10.00
    Minus the $5/10 items = $5.00
    Use (3) of the $1/3 Mentos 15 count gum coupons = $2.00 for 10!
