Even if you normally eschew grocery savings for whatever reason, I encourage you to hit Meijer at least once this week! They are running two particularly fantastic deals.
First, Maxwell House coffee is only $1.79. That’s nothing to write home about, but if you buy three, you get a free five pound bag of sugar (Pioneer brand, normally $2.49). Even better, if you buy four coffees, you get a coupon for $4 off your next grocery purchase!
Here is what you want to do: purchase four Maxwell House coffees (flavored coffee is included in this deal!) and one five pound bag of Pioneer sugar. You’ll pay $7.16 out of pocket and get a $4 coupon back. You can roll that over and over again, so the next time, you only pay $3.16 for the four coffees and bag of sugar, and get another $4 coupon back. And so on for as long as you feel like going back to Meijer. If you are a coffee drinker or sugar eater, this is a good deal. It would be an even better deal if you had some Maxwell House coupons, but I couldn’t find any. Let me know if you run across a source.
If you do not drink coffee or eat sugar, you are a gifted ascetic basking in naturalness.
But I assume that even ascetics eat apples, and Meijer is also running a great apple deal this week. Three pound bags of premium Michigan apples are included in the buy 10 for $10 get the 11th free deal. This is unheard of. It makes the apples 30 cents per pound! Stock up; apples keep.
Other notable inclusions in the 10/10/11 deal are 10 oz packages of fresh spinach, 6 oz containers of blackberries, two pound bags of powdered sugar, and boxes of Green Giant frozen vegetables. Note that you have to buy a combination of 11 of the items to get the 11th free and make each item 90 cents.
I originally found out about the coffee deal via Money Saving Mom. Great website, if you don’t already check it!
