Saving Money with Meijer Deals

Okay, so Meijer is doing soooo many "buy this and get $X.XX off that" deals I thought I'd list them all in one post before I do my Weekly Round-Up. It's getting insane at Meijer and I can't keep track of all the deals myself so typing them out for you will really help me. Here they all are (I think):

Coke (Deal ends 9/13)
-Buy $10 of Coke products and get $10 off any pair of men's, women's or children's athletic shoes ( shoes are on sale 20- 30% off this week)
-Powerade is a Coke product, so if you have any $1 off Powerade coupons left from the 7/13 SS you can use these toward your Coke total

Pepsi (Deal ends 9/13)
-Buy $10 of Pepsi products and get $10 off any pair of men's, women's or children's blue jeans (does anyone know why they list men's, women's or children's for everything? why don't they just say "all"? are alien blue jeans and athletic shoes not included?)
-Pepsi 24 packs are $3.99 this week but ONLY when you buy 4, so you spend $16 on Pepsi to get your $10 off blue jeans, $3.99 is not the BEST deal on Pepsi, but if you need jeans, it's good.

Post Cereal (This week only)
-Buy any 3 Post cereals listed in this add (add includes Grape Nuts 32 oz, Raisin Bran 25 oz, Honey Bunches of Oats Almond or Honey Roasted 19 oz, Honeycomb 18.5 oz or Cocoa or Fruity Pebbles 17 oz (all at 3/$7)) and get $3 off one Meijer Gallon Milk (excluded chocolate and Organic)
-Milk is only $2.50 this week, so why they put $3 is beyond me (I know milk is priced different in different markets, but if they're changing the price of milk in the add, can't they change the amount you get free too?). Anyway, that means after the cereal, your milk is free.
-There are coupons to help you out with this deal including the $1/2 Post cereal coupons in the 7/27 SS

Kellogg (Deal ends 9/13)
- Buy $10 of any Kellogg products and get $10 off a backpack (backpacks are on sale 30% off this week)
-Pop Tarts are on sale 3/$4 this week and there were $1/2 coupons in the 8/3 Kellogg insert
-Eggo Waffles are $1.15 and there were $1/2 coupons in the 8/3 Kellogg insert
-Bonus: in the Keebler/Kellogg Fuel for School booklet (found in stores by Keeber and Kellogg back to school display) there was a coupon for $2 off any variety of milk when you buy Pop Tarts and Eggos
-I'm told there are SEVERAL back packs priced at $10 or less

Nabisco (Deal ends 9/13)
- Buy $10 of any combination of Nabisco cookies or crackers and get $10 off 3 packages of Fruit of the Loom Basics for the family (socks, underwear and t-shirts)
-You can use the coupons for Free Wheat Thins found in the All You Magazine to get your $10 of Nabisco products for free and you will only have to pay for the remaining balance of the Fruit of the Loom

-All of these deals are done automatically at the register (be sure to check your receipt or watch as the items are being scanned to make sure the money comes off, mistakes do happen). All of the $10 required totals are BEFORE coupons, so if you buy 8 boxes of Pop Tarts and your total is $10.xx you get the deal, then they subtract your coupons so you are only paying $6.xx oop for your Pop Tarts. They are also limit 1 per transaction. That doesn't mean you can only do 1 deal per transaction, only 1 of EACH deal per transactions (i.e. 1 Pepsi deal and 1 Coke deal is okay, you can't do 2 Pepsi deals). Keep in mind, you can do as many transactions between now and when the deal is over that you want. Have 3 kids and need 3 backpacks? Do the Kellogg deal 3 times. There is no limit per person, only per transaction.

Have questions or better coupon match-ups than I found? Please leave a comment.

Happy Savings!
