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.

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 item 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 from printing along with a limited quantity printed on the rain check. The quantity limited depends on your stores location.

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



Laura, there is also a Brooks chili beans manufactures coupon for 55 cents off two. I think, but I'm not sure it was in Sunday's paper (11/16).

Hi all,

The I Can't Believe It's Not Butter for $1.29 is printing out $2 catalina's for each one you purchase, plus with some IP and Mealbox coupons you can get the m for between 4 and 29 cents each, resulting in LOTS of overage. I have two computers and was able to print 10 coupons, and made over $29 in overage!! If you want details I'd be happy to email you them. Macomb Money Savers has links to the coupons in her Meijer Match-up, but I did the deal a little differently then she outlined to get a better deal.

Sadly, the butter deal above is dead. Thanks Tina!

Kind of late in the week to post this, but...I noticed yesterday that the Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals crackers (what I call "fancy" crackers) are on sale at Meijer 2/$5. There is also a MFC for $1/1 and a MBC for $1/2. So, they'd only be $1/box. Not bad for "fancy" crackers for your cracker/cheese trays for the holidays!
