Huggies Diaper deal
(courtesy of Macomb Money Savers)

"Buy 2 Huggies, Depend, Scott or Kotex products in one transaction, get a $3 checkout coupon valid off your next shopping trip. (Buy 3, get $4 - but you'll only get $1.33 per item rather than $1.50 per item, so stick with 2 per transaction!). Limit 1 offer per transaction; valid 1/17-1/27. Additional coupon will not print when the coupon is redeemed in the same transaction.

This Catalina information is taken from this week's Metro Detroit Meijer store ad, so if you have any trouble with the Catalina not printing, take your receipt and ad to the customer service desk for assistance.

REMEMBER that each of the following scenarios would need to be purchased in a SEPARATE TRANSACTION to receive the $3.00 checkout coupon:

$8.97 Huggies Diapers - Pure & Natural, Little Snugglers or Little Movers
-$2.00/1 Huggies Little Snugglers or Little Movers printable coupon (2 prints per computer) OR
-$2.50/1 Huggies Pure & Natural printable coupon (2 prints per computer)
$6.47-6.97 each when you buy 2 with 2 coupons, plus get a $3.00 Catalina at checkout
Final Cost: $4.97-5.47 each after savings"

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!
