Deal Alert: Stock up on Kraft Mac & Cheese at Kroger

Monday, July 13, 2009 Hand-posted by Jennifer

Here’s an awesome deal that I found after I rounded up some current Kroger catalina’s the other day:

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese between 7/3-7/26
Buy (4) & Get $1.00 or Buy (5) & Get $1.50 or Buy (6) or More & Get $2.00

Kraft macaroni and Cheese The Cheesiest Kraft Macaroni & Cheese - The Cheesiest Original Flavor 7.25oz box $.53
BUY (6) BOXES (Only get six to maximize the catalina deal above!)
Use (1) Buy 3 Get 1 FREE printable or in 6/28 Smart Source insert
Pay $2.65 out of pocket
Get back $2 catalina for buying 6 boxes
Final Price = $.11cents per box or $.65 TOTAL after coupon & catalina!!!
AND Final Price is only $.20cents per box without any coupons after the catalina!

**Make sure you buy 6 boxes to maximize the catalina offer and separate your transactions**

My children love the Kraft brand of the Mac  & Cheese and I can say that we’re definitely stocked up now!

    I have a question about the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Catalina deal at Kroger. So I only use one of the "Buy 3 Get One Free" coupons? And is the Catalina for $2.00 off Kraft Macaroni on your next trip, or is it just a $2.00 of your next grocery bill at Kroger? Not sure how the Catalinas work.

    Thanks a bunch for taking the time to explain this to me!

    Have a great day!

    The Catalina prints out as a "Thank you" for purchasing the Kraft Macaroni. It is basically like a coupon that can be applied toward your next shopping trip (similar to the Walgreens register rewards), not your next purchase of Kraft Mac.

    It excludes a few things like prescriptions, gas, alcohol, cigarettes and maybe something else but, for the most part you can buy almost anything. It is referred to a lot of times as a Cat or OYNO (On Your Next Order).

    Hope that helps!

    My Kroger would only let me use one of those coupons in each transaction. I bought 6 boxes of macaroni and cheese (getting 2 free) but they wouldn't let me use both coupons.. :(

    That's right! Sorry I wasn't clear.

    It's actually better to buy 6 boxes and only use 1 coupon rather than 8 boxes and 2 coupons! And then turn around and do the deal over again.

    Sorry about the confusion.

    I think I'm slow today. Why can't we buy 8, use 2 of the b3/g1 coupons, and get the $2 catalina? I'm pretty sure my store will let me use 2 of those coupons, but does it effect whether or not the catalina prints?

  7. Jennifer said...

    It's not that you can't buy 8 but the final price is actually better if you only buy 6. Here's the math:

    8x.53=4.24-.53-.53-2.00=1.18/8=.15ea
    6x.53=3.18-.53-2.00=.65/6=.11ea
    5x.53=2.65-.53-1.50=.62/5=.12ea
    4x.53=2.12-.53-1.00=.59/4=.15ea

    I know it's kind of crude but if you see the final price of .11cents each on the 2nd line of the example for only buying 6 boxes and using only 1 coupon is better than any of the other examples.

    I only got the 4 boxes, used 1 Buy 3 Get 1 free coupon, and got my $1.00 catalina. I'm happy enough! :) Oh, and I did the 4 boxes of Betty Crocker fruit snacks last week and used my $2.50 catalina toward this week's groceries. Thank you for posting about all these!

    I picked up 36 boxes tonight at Kroger. Because my husband and I will NEVER eat this many.. I plan on donating SEVERAL of these to my church pantry. Thanks so much for all the info/deals! Beyond helping me save on a weekly basis.. you are also giving me another way to serve people in need! So GREAT!!

    I was so excited about this deal...and I totally flubbed up and messed up! But I did get the $2.00 coupon. Thanks!

    One time I bought 12 and only got 1 $2 coupon. Next time I split my order thinking I'd get 1 on each transaction, but still got only. Do you know why? Is it 1 transaction per day?

    Thanks for all of your hard work!
