To access Meijer Mealbox coupons (MBC):
Mealbox Generator to print multiple Mealbox coupons per page. Or visit Meijer online (look for the 'Special's tab in the blue box to the right!) to print a single coupon per page. I offer two printing locations because the Mealbox Generator is not as extensive as the Meijer online site.

NEW!!! Some Mealbox coupons are now stating LIMIT ONE PER TRANSACTION. Please read all coupons carefully!

Keep in Mind:

*Meijer will only double the first TWO identical MANUFACTURER coupons. This may mean that you will need to break your purchasing into ONE large transaction and SEVERAL smaller transactions to ensure that ALL of your coupons are able to double.

*Meijer will never double a Mealbox coupon.

*Meijer allows the 'Stacking' of one Manufacturer coupon and one Mealbox coupon per items purchased unless either coupon states otherwise. For example, a coupon may say save $1 on two items, then you would need to follow the purchasing rules for that specific coupon.

*Rain checks are available at the customer service desk, at the podium in front of the cash register lines or with your cashier. Remember that Meijer rain checks have an expiration date 30 days prom printing along with a limited quantity printed on the rain check. The quantity limited depends on your stores location.

*Meijer offers a $.05 bag credit per bag that you supply for your groceries. You will probably need to ask for your bag credits!

AND AS ALWAYS, please leave me a comment if I have missed a deal... Thank you!
