Thanks so much for this info! I just found your blog and I'm loving it =)

here is a recipe you might like to try using all that hot cocoa mix!


Lori S. said...

Thank you so much for sharing this deal! I dragged my poor kids with me to go through the checkout 5 times yesterday at Shaws. I spent $12 total, and got bags and bags of food. Am going to go again tonight, too, and this time get things to donate to the local food pantry. Thank you for the tip!

BTW, I found you through Money Saving Mom's blog.

Ronell said...

The cake mix coupons is from a recent insert. It is $1/3 and it says for sugar free but it works on all. Sorry I don't know which insert it's from!

Thanks Justine!

Thanks for the recipe I may have to try that!

And Lori I am so happy you were able to take advantage of this awesome deal!

Did you get gas coupons too? I have stupidly doing my deals in $30 increments, alerting all the store staff to my deals and NOT earning any gas coupons. But at this point I'm down to $15 that I'm rolling and I don't need to invest any more so cash so I'll just keep rolling.

I can't do any more Con-Agra because our store is completely out of cocoa. I can't IMAGINE why (said as I sip one cup of a 10 cup package that is just one of 63 in my pantry). Sigh.

The Consumer Queen said...

Thanks Hope you don't mind but I posted about you today on my blog and Shaws deals www.consumerqueen.com

Ronell said...

Unfortuntaley we don't have the gas deal here in CT! So mad! And I am laughing cause I have 60 boxes myself and plan on getting more if my store has any! lol.

Thank you consumerqueen!

I was so upset last night! I put my kids in bed and ran to Shaws. I had four scenerios mapped out, coupons clipped...started my first run and the manager would not let me use more than one catalina per transaction! I told her countless people have been able to do it...I told her I'd done it at the store in the neighboring town that very day, I'd done it at that same store a few days before...but she said she wouldn't allow it "on her watch" and the other stores must not be following policy. I'm going to call today to make sure she's not on during the day, then head back to the store and try it again. If that manager doesn't let me do it, I'll head to the store in the next town and when I'm done I'm going to call and complain. I just don't want to call first and have them say that you can only use one and ruin it for everyone! I was so upset last night though! What an inconvenience!

Thanks for all your work on this though! The presale prices you listed were a huge help!

Heidi said...

Ronell, you are a genius. Just found your blog and I was at Shaw's 3 times yesterday. Just writing to thank you and let you know you've got a new convert!

Ronell said...

Chrisina, I'm so sorry that happened to you. I hate that these stores are all over the place and aren't just across the board on policies! It can be so frustrating! Anyway, If someone gives you trouble again, I would tell them then that is false advertising!!! In the ad itself it says purchase $30 worth and get $15 Off You NEXT Purchase!! We did not assume that (3) $5 cats were going to print, we thought it was going to be (1) $15 coupon! See what she says to that. Good luck and remember today is the last day, but save all those cats cause you can roll them into next weeks deals! I will be posting those tonight! Take care and thanks so much for reading!

Ronell said...

Awe thanks so much Heidi!

Jamie said...

I tried this yesterday and it didnt work, I bought 6 swiss miss and 3 healthy choice soups and no CATS? why is this, I am in CT

Ronell said...

Hi Jaime, what store did you go to? Did you be sure to check the presale pricing at your store so that your total was $20? My soup prices are normally $2.69/can and my cocoa is normally $1.99/box. That could have been it, maybe your soup is normally cheaper than at my store? Also was the cat machine working? Did you get other coupons out of it?

this was a great post i did this deal so many times this week that i thought for sure they would stop me and say no more but today i did it 2 more times and im donating it to my local food bank and i still have 15.00 to use for the deals starting tommorrow. so i guess ill get some stuff for home and some more for the food bank. I am obsessed now with seeing how much i can get for free.

Christy said...

Wow! You did such a great job. Way to go!

Amy in MA said...

This was a great deal, we made 5 trips this week and ended up with $129 worth of groceries for $12!!!

I never see Shaws deals posted so was thrilled to find this one!
