My Meijer Shopping Trip + Coupon Match-Ups

I was able to get everything pictured above for only $23.25! My local Meijer doubles coupons up to $.99 and they only double 2 of the "same" coupons per transaction.

  1. awesome! lol your great! -rose

  2. ok, I'm confused. You said the pepperoni was $1 and you used a $0.55 coupon & it was free? Where did the other $0.45 go? Same with the Taco Seasoning, it was $0.75 and you used a $0.50 coupon and it was free??

  3. wait, I reread your post, I think I get it. Meijer doubls the coupons, so that is how it is free. How do you know if they will double your coupons or not?

  4. I got great deals at Meijer this week too. Love the free dish soap. I am wondering how you find some of your printable coupons though. For example I did not realize that there was a $1.50/3 Campbells coupon and I missed that one. :( I had an e-coupon added to my Kroger card but would have loved to use the printable coupon at Meijer.

  5. Oh yeah and at our store the Campbells Select Harvest Soups are $1.00 ea and there are printable coupons for $1/2 as well as a mealbox coupon for $1/4. $.25 ea. I like these soups although there aren't as many varieties as some of the others. You have to watch because most of my MQ said it had to be the Healthy Request version but still they had our favorite Mexican Tortilla Soup in that so it worked for me. Also Mperks had a $2/$5 purchase that helped me also.

  6. Anonymous- It would probably be best to call your local Meijer and ask whether they double coupons.

    Valerie, I had posted the $1.50/3 Campbells soup coupon several weeks ago. It's still available to print.

    Yep, I loved the free Gain Dish Soap too! I wish I would have had another set of 3 coupons!

  7. I haven't gone yet! :) -rose

  8. V8 Fusion Tea - $2.50 ea
    Use $.75/1 V8 Fusion Tea from 10-3 SS and
    Use $1/2 V8 Fusion Meijer Mealbox coupon
    Final Price - $.50 ea wyb 2

    Ok I am confused with this one. You buy 2 and that is $5 and with both of those coupons it only takes $2.50 off. So how do you end up with a .50 each?? Sorry, it takes me awhile to see thru some of this stuff.

  9. Berneice, it is confusing at first. Buy 2 which is $5 like you said. Use 2 of the $.75/1 V8 Manufacturer coupons and since at Michelle's Meijer they will double that one it will deduct $1.50 per coupon which is a total deduction of $3. Then use the mealbox coupon which will deduct another $1 so you will be left with only paying $1 for two or $.50 each.

  11. Sorry for not getting back sooner. I was gone all day. And yes Valerie is right since you're buying 2 because of the $1/2 Meijer coupon you need to use 2 of the $.75/1 manufacturer coupons. Hope that makes sense!

  12. Oh, and in NewarkI couldn't find the V8 Fusion Tea on the shelf with the rest of the V8 Juice but then finally found it on an end cap by the freezer section.

  13. Thanks. I actually ended up getting the V8 splash stuff instead. They were 3/$5 which made them 1.66 each- I only bought 2. I had three different Q's - i wasn't sure they would let me use all 3 but they did, so they ended up being 70 some cents. worked out pretty good. I later found the tea back there then too.
