    Does anyone know for sure if you can do the Meal Deal once per day or once per card (1 a week)?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Sep 27, 2010

    dbztward - you cannot use the Kraft manufacturer's coupons from this weeks paper with the $5/5 Kraft cheese manufacturer's coupon if you only buy 5 products. They are all manufacturer coupons and cannot be stacked on the same products. Sorry.

  • dbztward Sep 26, 2010

    CAN YOU USE THE $5 OFF 5 KRAFT PRODUCTS ALONG WITH OTHER COUPONS, LIKE $1/2 KRAFT SINGLES OR $1/2 SHREDDED CHEESE THAT WERE IN THE PAPER TODAY? THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO, FAYE!!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Sep 24, 2010

    That's great to know karmstr9 - any especially good deals you found?

  • karmstr9 Sep 23, 2010

    Food Lion in Morrisville just opened a week ago and they are running specials better than the regular Food Lion stores.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Sep 23, 2010

    That usually means the # of prints allowed total have been reached and that nobody can print anymore. Sorry, whwall.

  • whwall Sep 23, 2010

    Faye, why am I not able to print the Keri coupon. I am getting a message saying You have already printed this coupon the number of times allowed. I have never printed this coupon before and have tried 2 different computers.

  • happy Sep 23, 2010

    I went to Kroger after work last night. Didn't do too great on savings, as my pantry was almost bare and I needed alot of things that I simply didn't have coupons for. I think I saved 28%. BUT...two things I wanted to mention.

    Apparently, right after the 5:00 pm grocery run before home rush, they start marking down their meats. I got two HUGE boneless ribeyes for $4.99/lb. Ground chuck for $1.69/lb. Pork chops (don't remember exact cost/lb) 5 chops for $3 and some change. Also, had a coupon that I had peeled off a package of OM Angus hotdogs for $1 off 1 package. Found those marked down to $1.89, so I paid .89 for those.

    I still had my $5/5 Kraft coupon, so I loaded up on those as well.

    Uncle Ben's has a (forgive if the term isn't correct) $1 off coupon on the aisle...blinkie? Kroger's has the flavored rices on sale for 2/$3 so it is .50/box. My Kroger had run out of coupons.

  • KrackinUp Sep 23, 2010

    topjenn82:

    I believe you can purchase the Meal Deal once per day.

    sduncan8:

    no, you cannot use coupons on free items.

  • justme463 Sep 23, 2010

    Does Kroger (Garner location) accept the printable $5 off of Kraft cheese coupon? I remember reading before that some stores don't.
