Mac and Cheese at Albies

Here is a FABULESS deal I picked up at Albertsons on Overland and Orchard today. Also seen at 36th and State, but not at Cole Rd. or 76th and State.

Here is how I got there:

4 5 pks of Mac and Cheese = $20
spend $10 save $3 instantly= -$6
peelies on front of 5pks
for free Capris Sunrise
with purchase of 5pk= 4 boxes free

4 Capris Suns ($10)= -$3 instantly

Total $11
Plus a Catalina for $1 off my next purchase from Kraft. Apparently the 5 pks work on the promo!!

I think that buying in a transaction of 4 5pks and 4 boxes of CS was the most efficient. I probably could have done better with my coupons but I was working and did not have them with me. But still just $.50 a box for the mac and cheese and 40 pouches of Cap Suns FREE!!!

If you buy 6 boxes, a $2 catalina prints out

Letia, That is true, I just said to buy in increments of 4 to maximize on the $3 instant savings from buying the 4 Capris Suns (that you got for free) and still get a $1 Catalina.
4 costs $11OOP with a $1 Catalina ($2.50/5pk)
6 costs $18 OOP with a $2 Calatlina ($2.67/ 5pk)
Not a huge difference, so if you need 6 buy them that way, it's still a great deal.
