I finally went to Albertsons to shop the sale yesterday! I "splurged" a little because we had some friends coming over, but still did ok. I spent $15.32 and did this in 2 transactions.
My first transaction I was using the Kraft promo ( buy $10.00 and get $3.00 off instantly) and the Taco Bell catalina (Taco Bell Home Originals Dinner Kits or Shells Purchase between 3/27/09 & 4/19/09 Buy 2 & get $1 OYNSOBuy 3 & get $2 OYNSOBuy 4 or more & get $3 OYNSO)
Here is what I did:
- 2 boxes of Ritz crackers at 2 for $5.00
Used the Nabisco Ritz, Wheat Thins or Triscuit, any varieties $2/2 (3-31-09) SS-1/25
Final Price after coupon & Discount - $1.50 or $0.75 each!
- 1 box Taco Bell Tostada diner kit at $2.50
Final Price after discount- $1.75
-2 boxes of Taco Bell taco shells at $1.00 each
Final Price after discount - $1.40 or $0.70 each
- 1 can of Taco Bell Refried Beans at $1.00 each
Final price after discount - $0.70
Total paid $5.95 Total Saved- $9.34 plus I got a $3.00 catalina!
Next transaction was the "splurge" for having friends over
-1 two liter of Coke (not pictured) at $1.69
-1 family size Fritos at $3.49
-2 cartons of Dryers Icecream at $6.49 each
Final Price- $6.49 for 2 or $3.25 each
- I used my $3.00 off catalina
Total Paid- $9.37 Total Saved $11.69!
So if you want to get some Taco Bell products now is a good time! Just remember to break up your transactions so they equal the $10! Then use the catalina that prints on your next transaction! (its kind of a game!) When I went shopping I thought the cataliana only worked on the dinner kits & shells but evidently it includes the beans as well! I may have to go back and just buy more beans! Hmmm....I got to go back to Albertsons!
Oh Ya!! Don't forget they also have the 2% Kraft Cheese catalina and the Suave Catalina starts Sunday! If you need a refresher on those you can read it here.
