Albertsons Kraft Mac & Cheese/Capri Sun Deal mingled with PERISHABLE Deals!

SO I headed over to Albertsons tonight, hoping to take advantage of the best deal this week:

Purchase a 5 pack of Mac and Cheese, and get ANOTHER 5 pack FREE - along with TWO boxes of Capri Sun FREE!

My nearest Albies is the 5&O which seems to run out of stuff pretty quick. I meandered in, expecting to see the Capri Suns gone. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had a large display (east entrance) of the Mac and Cheese and Capri Suns. So I picked up two of each, grabbed some Coke Products (only .79 for 2-liter) and some FRESH PEACHES (.98/lb - 4 star deal, and I've been craving peaches to eat on my Post Raisin Bran that I'm stocked up on!).

Once I checked out, I was pleased to see that a $2 catalina printed out! Even though the 10 boxes of Mac and Cheese were packaged in fives, it counted as the Kraft Buy 6 or More get $2 OYNO deal! (Please note the CATALINA deal ENDS Sunday!)

So I essentially received 10 boxes of Mac and Cheese PLUS 2 boxes of Capri Suns all for $5.69 ($3.69 if you account for the $2 cat! {ha ha! That sounds pretty funny!})


Also - there were blinkies for $1/2 on the V8 Fusion (and plenty of those in stock as well!) which are on sale for $1.88 each.

I only used one coupon on this trip - and it was the blinkie from the store. Wow. No brain work at all on this one!

How is your store stocked? Are you enjoying a NICE AND EASY WEEK!? (I'm also happy to have low prices on some good staples for the house - beef, milk, fruit... all good stuff!).

ps - I came across this thread on the Idaho PYP forums that lists the best perishable items on sale right now! Kind of a comparison list. I don't have ALL these stores where I am, but I do have some of them. Go check it out! (Just another reason why PYP rocks!)

Are you sure the catalina was from the mac and cheese? I did 6 of the 5 packs (3 bought, got 3 free)yesterday and no catalina. Just a heads up for people not to count on it working that way.

The cat printed for me too. It was a pleasant surprise cause I didn't know about it. But you have to buy them in separate transactions or it doesn't print for all of them. Also, I was almost ready to leave and it started to print a little late. Maybe you just didn't get it.

Hiccups- We have had the $2 cat confirmed at many different locations and by many different people. You must have missed it. If you are going back during the sale period take in your reciept to customer service and let them know what happened. They will get you your $2.

Thanks, I'm glad it was just me!
