Mustard & Meatballs & Tissues, OH MY!

The last two weeks offered the well-famed Kroger Mega Event. Buy 10 participating items, get $5 off your total bill.

There was a Catalina associated with the Armour Meatballs: Buy 4, get $2 OYNO. This is now expired. I combined this with the mega event and the .55 MQ that doubled. I paid .90 for each bag, only .40 each after Catalina value.


The tissues are on sale for $1.59. I used the .40 MQ that doubled along with the mega event discount to pay just .29 each.

There is a Catalina associated with the French's Mustard: Buy 2, get $1 OYNO. This is still going on through the 22nd, but it won't be as sweet without the sale price and mega event discount.

Here's the breakdown:

$1.69 Sale Price
- .50 MQ
- .50 Mega Event Discount (WYB 10 items)
Pay .19 each
Earn $1 for every 2 you buy
Profit of .31 each

There's another event going on next week that gives you $3 off when you buy 10 participating items. I know that doesn't sound as good right off the top, but some of the items are cheaper and include coupon matches. I just ordered coupons for Manwich, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, and Pillsbury GRANDS! biscuits. I'll be getting out my Ragu coupons along with those for Multigrain & Honey Nut Cheerios. You can check out Nickels-N-Dimes post about it here, but she is from a different region and there will probably be some variances.

Ok, you weren't joking with the mustard and meatballs!! If our family would have used these things I would have been right there with you. I'm happy that I scored granola bars, salsa and cheese for at least the next six months :)I'm disappointed that I can't find many coupons for the sale this week :( There is always next week. Thanks again for all the tips. Talk to you soon.
