Shopper's Food Warehouse Double Coupon Matchups (Doubles ALL COUPONS UP TO $1!!) Thursday 4/2 through Sunday 4/5

Shopper's Food Warehouse is doubling all coupons up to $1.00 in value! Thursday, April 2 through Sunday, April 5. No limits, no restrictions! Time to purge your coupons wallets and file folders of all those $1.00-valued coupons.

We will post matchups here, so come back to this post to see the list grow in the next few days!
First and foremost, Post cereals are 2/$4, no limits. There was a coupon for $1/2 Post Cereals in the 03/08 SmartSource insert - a manufacturer coupon. There is a retailer coupon in the Shopper's Food Warehouse ad for the coming week for $1 off two (exp. 04/08/09). These should in theory be stackable - because they are from different sources - just like you can stack Safeway Supercoupons and manufacturer coupons, or stack CVS coupons with manufacturer coupons. I predict that the manufacturer coupon will double, but that the retailer one will not, which will result in $1 for two boxes - just $0.50/each for cereal! Edit: The fab Gina of Moneywise Moms pulled this Post deal off - and got Catalina printouts, to boot! This made the cereal even cheaper in net terms. Check out the summary of her April Shopper's double coupon trip here to see how she did the Post deal, and got FREE popcorn and Huggies bath products. Incidentally, A. tried this deal, and both the store and manufacturer coupons were accepted, but no Catalina printed out. Reader Ashley reports (in the comments) that her store would not accept both - so how far this deal can go appears to be a 'depending on your cashier/store' kind of a thing. A commenter on Gina's blog also noted, "To further your savings on the Raisin Bran deal, sign up for Upromise ecoupons. Save $2 on 3 Post Cereals (Raisin Bran) and Save $1 on 2 Post Kids Cereal. Use manufacturer coupons of $1/2 Post and $1/2 Kids Post cereals. By putting all these together you could actually make $.55 on 5 boxes of cereal!"

Dannon Yoghurt is 10/$5, or $0.50 each, but if you double the $1/10 Dannon coupon from the 03/15 SS, you will get them for $0.30 each!

Other coupon matchups found in the Shopper's Food Warehouse weekly circular:

14 oz. boxes of Cheerios are 2/$7, or $3.50 each. There was a $1.00/3 coupon in the 01/04 General Mills insert. When doubled, you get 3/$8.50, or $2.83. Not a good deal, but a matchup nonetheless.

Kellogg's Frosted Flakes varieties are 2/$7, or $3.50 each. AFullCup's coupon database says that the 04/01 Red Plum insert had a $1.00/1 Kellogg's cereal (10 oz.+), which would make these $1.50 each. You can probably do better with a $1.00 off any Kellogg's coupon, though, so unless you need cereal, save the coupon for a later sale.

Ragu is 2/$4. The 04/01 (or 03/31?) Red Plum had a $0.30/1 coupon, which would double, making the Ragu $1.40/jar.

Aquafina 24-packs are $3.99. Use the Buy 2, Get 1 Free coupon from a recent Sunday Supplement to get three for $7.98, or $2.83/24-pack.

Birds Eye frozen Steamfresh Broccoli and Cauliflower blends are 2/$4. Use the $1/3 coupon from the 03/01 Red Plum insert to make them $1.33 each.

Tyson Breaded Chicken is $6.99. Use the $1/1 any Tyson breaded bagged product (03/08 SS) to make it $4.99.

Bob Evans Breakfast Links, 2/$6. Use the $0.25/1 Bob Evans Sausage (03/22 supplement) to make them $2.50 each.

Bob Evans Sides (homestyle stuffing, Glazed Apples, or Green Bean Casserole) are 2/$6. The 03/22 SmartSource insert had a $0.35/1 coupon, which would make these $2.30 each.

Hillshire Farm Deli Select Lunch Meats are 2/$7. Use the $0.55/1 coupon from the 02/22 Red Plum to make them $2.40 each. When you buy two, you can probably use the Shopper's Food Warehouse weekly ad coupon (a manufacturer coupon) for buy two Hillshire Farm Deli Select Lunchmeats, and get a Lay's Potato Chips (10.5-11 oz bag!) FREE!

Del Monte canned vegetables are 10/$10. When you use the $1.00/12 (02/08 Red Plum - expires 04/04!), you can get 12 for $10, or $0.83/can.

Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are 2/$5, and an 11 oz. pag of Hershey's Kisses goes for $3 (2/$6). Use the $1.50/3 coupon from the 03/15 SS insert to make the PB Eggs $2.00 each or the Kisses $2.50/bag. (Really - you'll probably be better off using this at a different candy sale unless you need to make Easter baskets yesterday.)

Domino sugar 5 lb. bags are $2.89 each. Use the $0.50/2 from the 03/15 SS insert to make them $2.39 each.

Domino 1 lb. boxes of Light Brown, Dark Brown, or 10x Confectioner's Sugar are 10/$10. Use the $0.50/1 coupon from the 03/15 SS insert to make them FREE!

Betty Crocker Frosting is 2/$3. Use the $0.50/1 from the 02/08 General Mills supplement to get the frosting FREE!

Zatarain's Rice side dishes are 10/$10. Use the $0.75/2 coupon from the 02/08 Red Plum insert to get these for just $0.25 each!

French's French Fried Onions (6 oz.) are $3.49. Use the $1.00/1 coupon (12/14/08 SS) to get them for $1.49.

Swanson Chicken Broth is 2/$5. Use the $1/2 coupon from the 03/29 SS insert to get the broth for $1.50/carton.

Dole Pineapple is 10/$10. Use the $0.75/2 any Dole canned fruit (02/01 SS) to get the pineapple for $0.25/can!

Betty Crocker cookie mixes are 2/$4. Use the $0.40/1 coupon from the 02/08 GM insert (expires 04/04!) to make them $1.20 each.

McCormick food coloring is $2.99 (assorted or neon colors). Use the $1/1 coupon from the 03/15 RP insert to make it just $0.99! Or, get the advertised 2/$4 McCormick seasoning grinders for FREE!

Betty Crocker Supreme brownie mixes are 3/$5, or $1.66 each. Use the $0.75/2 coupon from the 02/08 GM insert (expires 04/04!) make them $0.91 each.

Tennessee Pride Breakfast Sandwiches are 10/$10. Use the $1/1 coupon from the 02/18 SS to make them FREE!

Gatorade 8-Packs are $5.50 each (2/$11). Use the $1/1 PowerPack coupon from the 02/01 RP insert to make the $3.50 each.

New York garlic bread, garlic breadsticks, or Texas toast is 2/$5. Use the $0.75/1 coupon from the 03/01 Red Plum insert to make them $1 each.

Zone Perfect Bars are 10/$10. Use the $0.55/1 coupon (03/01 SS) to make them FREE!

Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls or Crescent Rolls are 2/$4. There was a $0.35/1 crescent rolls coupon in the 10/19/08 SS that would make the crescent rolls $1.30 each.

Pillsbury Frozen Biscuits, Grands Cinnamon Rolls, or Mini Cinnamon Rolls are 2/$6. Use the $1/1 coupon from the 03/08 SS to make these just $1/bag!

Advil is $3.99 16-50 cts. There have been $1 Advil coupons out almost every month, which would make the Advil $1.99. If there's no pressing need for it, save the coupons for a CVS ECB deal.

14 ct. packages of adult Zyrtec are $11.95. Use $2.50 off/14 ct. coupon from a recent Sunday supplement to make it $9.45.

Mennen or Lady Speed Stick deodorants are 2/$5. Use the $1/2 coupon (03/29 SS) to make them $1.50 each.

Nature Made Vitamins are 33% off. Use the $1/1 coupon (doubles) from the 01/04 and 02/01 SS inserts.

Garnier Fructis Shampoo and Conditioner are $2.99. Use the $1/1 coupon from the 01/04 or 03/08 Red Plum / Valassis inserts to make them just $0.99 each.

Eight O'Clock coffee is 2 x 12 oz. bags for $9. Use the $1/2 coupon from the 03/01 SS to make each 12 oz. bag just $3.50. Compare with the (low for the brand) price of $5.99 for 12 oz. of Dunkin' Donuts!

Keebler pie crusts (and tart crusts) are 4/$5 ($1.25 each). Use the $0.55/1 (03/29 RP) to make them just $0.15 each!

Thanks, Moneywise Moms, for the tips on these three below deals (not to mention confirming the Post deal above!)

  • Huggies bath products clearanced in some stores at $1.47. Use the $1 off coupon from the 1/11 insert to make them FREE.
  • Jolly-Time Popcorn is on sale for $1. Use the 3/29 insert for $1/2 to get it FREE!
  • Dole Mandarin Oranges (large size) are $1.00, and there is a $1.00/3 coupon in the 3/29 insert, which doubles. You pay $1.00 for all three, and a $0.75-off-your-next-purcase-at-Shoppers Catalina will print out. Net is $0.25 for all three!

Daisy Sour Cream 8 oz. 3/$4 - .60 coupon from Sunday 4/4 insert = 0.13

Thai Kitchen Instant Rice Noodle Soup from $.89 to .95 - .50 coupon from insert several weeks ago = FREE

and Johnsonville breakfast sausage patties were just .79 with Sunday 4/4's coupon.

And finally, from reader Amber (thanks, Amber!):

I haven't seen anyone mention Bumblebee. They didn't actually *have* the things in my store, but a Bumblebee coupon (an old one - maybe early February - I'm sorry I don't remember) has "Prime Filets" $1/1. They were priced at $2 at my store, which would have made them free, had they been in stock.

And just for fun:
Sharon at UnfinishedMom saved 64% at Shopper's this weekend, bringing ~$90 worth of groceries down to $32. Woo hoo! Go, girl!

UnfinishedMom said...

Oh my goodness. So glad I've found you. I shop at Shoppers regularly, and this is extremely helpful!

Redemption Unlimited Girls said...

Welcome, sister! Hope that we can save you some coin. :)

Ashley said...

I tried using both cereal coupons but they would only accept one, even though the one in the flyer was a store coupon. Still a pretty good deal though!

Redemption Unlimited Girls said...

Hi, Ashley,

Thanks so much for giving feedback on this!

Incidentally, when A. tried the cereal deal - all the coupons were accepted (and maybe even doubled...? still not sure about that), but no Catalina printed out.

We mentioned your story briefly in the cereal paragraph in the original post to give people a heads-up that it may not work as cheaply as they might hope.

But you're right - 2 boxes for $2 is still pretty cheap!

laura said...

Thanks for the tips - I also found peelies on some of the Poptarts for $1/1 ... so, since they were priced at $2, they were free after coupon... I think that's the only one I found you don't already have listed!

Christye said...

thanks for all your work, it is very helpful...quick question-do you have to buy all items on a Xfor$X deal? or do you just get the sale price if you only buy one of them? and is the 10 for $10 a mix and match or just 10 of that item?

Redemption Unlimited Girls said...

Christye - great question. I've gotten the sale price in the past without buying the 'X' number on the sale tag. For example, I bought 'non-X' quantities of the Dole pineapples, and still got the sale price per unit.

Laura - thanks for the contribution on the FREE (woo!) Pop-Tarts. I am adding them to our master list!

Anna said...

Thanks so much for these tips. I also found these free or nearly free:
-Oikos Greek-style yogurt 5.3 oz. cups, $2 - $1 coupon in today's paper insert=FREE
-Daisy Sour Cream 8 oz. 3/$4 - .60 coupon from today's insert = 0.13
-Thai Kitchen Instant Rice Noodle Soup from $.89 to .95 - .50 coupon from insert several weeks ago = FREE
-and Johnsonville breakfast sausage patties were just .79 with today's coupon.

UnfinishedMom said...

Woo Hoo! I just saved a ton at Shoppers! Total Spent $32.31; Total Saved: $57.95!! And earned $5.75 in Catalina! Happy, Happy!

I posted about it here:

Redemption Unlimited Girls said...

Thanks so much for sharing your savings, ladies!! We're doing happy dances for you too (sing it with us: "Iiiiii'm every woman..." lol).

We will be adding both of your post info to our master matchup list. Reader feedback on these deals is the BEST!

Adrienne said...

I gathered up all my $1 coupons and went to Shoppers yesterday. Since I only just started couponing I was missing most of the coupons in your suggested matchups so that was unfortunate. Still, I had a nice handful of coupons for things we regularly use so I figured it was worth the trip. I'd never actually shopped at Shoppers before (except maybe to run in and grab one or two things) so it was a new experience. I have to say, though, that I was disappointed. I don't know if all SFW's are terribly disorganized and poorly staffed or if it was just the one I was at (I was at the one in Chantilly, VA, not the one closest to me but I was doing some other errands in that area. I would not go back to this store). It took me a long time to find everything and many items were either out of stock or not stocked at all (pretty normal things like kitchen trash bags, batteries and foil pans) I then spent at least 20 minutes waiting in line to check out and had problems with a few of my coupons. The cashier refused to accept my internet coupons (is this a SFW policy now?) and a couple of my coupons didn't double. By this point I had a crying baby so I just asked to return the items that didn't have working coupons and went on my way. Overall, I got a few good deals and saved $40 (it was only 28% savings since I got a few more expensive items like Brita filters). I'm still sticking with Wegmans for my regular shopping but might brave Shopper's again if they will double my $1 coupons.
