Fruit Snack Deal Turned Moneymaker!

First I must thank Fab FruGAL BETH!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

"If you go to the Target website, you are given a ton of coupons to print. Some are Target coupons and others are manufacturer's coupons. There is a Betty Crocker fruit snack coupon that happens to be a manufacturer's coupong and says the same thing as the ones from coupons.com, except it doesn't say DND! That would make the Albertson's deal SWEET! - Beth (Vancouver, WA)

Buy 5 - $5
Use 2 0.50/2 coupons (-1.00)
Use 2 doublers (-1.00)
= 3.00, get $3.50 back

To roll this deal - find a 0.50 item to throw in... or don't double if you don't have doublers or use your 3rd doubler from the previous transaction (if you didn't use it on something else) to make these free. My Albertsons keeps a stack on the customer service desk, so I grab a few doublers and then go shopping.

Note - if you only print the Betty Crocker fruit snack coupon, it does print in the middle of the page.

Thought you would all like to know!"

Woot thanks again Beth! I screwed up my transactions today and bought in lots of six and spent an extra .50 per transaction. I was so mad at myself, over $1. I am dumb huh? lol Well now I can make up for it!

I got distracted and bought some of the Sunkist fruit snacks. Though they were $1 still, they didn't print out the catalina. I can make up for that with these new coupons. Thank you!

That's awesome :) Thanks! Here's a tip about the e-centives coupons. Some stores train their employees to look for the id numbers on internet printables so they can be sure they are all unique and the coupons aren't copied. The e-centive coupons look like there aren't any unique numbers on them at first glance. However, if you look at the teeny, tiny stuff printed near the border of the coupon, there are unique numbers in there. I hope that saves someone trouble :)

Does any one know if these coupons can be used for regular fruit snacks? (Not roll ups ans such) I saw a women at the store with the same coupons I had but regular snacks. I didn't want to feel like a crazy person and follow her to the register to see if they were included. The coupon doesn't seem to include them but then again at the bottom of the Target on it says Fruit Flavored snacks. Thanks!

Does this coupon have a target logo on it? My Albertsons has told me that they won't accept manufacturers coupons if they have another store's logo on it. Is that true, or did I just have a confused cashier? Thanks!

Meaghan: The coupon lists all of the varieties.

SaraS: It does not have the TARGET LOGO!

I used these and did 6 in one transaction and it ended up getting all of them for free. Our Albies said they will take the DND cause they are loosing money!

How long is this deal? Through next Wed.? Thanks!

Amber said...

The $1 sale ends on Tuesday, but the cat runs through the 21st. So get a raincheck if you were unable to find a store in stock.

The Overland and Orchard store has a TON of fruit snacks, gushers, and fruit by the foot. A TON!!! I was just there Friday evening.
