Where did the $5.50/55, $1/4,& $1/9 come from?

Laura Webber

Hi Theresa,
The extra coupons that you are wondering about were Meijer store Catalinas... did that make sense?


For the Meijer purchase: Tropicana- how did you use all three coupons on top of each other? I thought the Internet printables are manufacturer cupons? So you can use two manufacturers together along with the Meijer MBC?

Laura Webber

The Tropicana coupons were as follows:

(2) Buy One Get One (BOGO) so two manufacturer's coupons for the two FREE ones

(2) $1/1 Manufacturer coupons for the non-FREE ones

(2) $1/2 Mealbox coupons

Was that helpful?


Hi Laura,

My children live on the Tropican OJ. Where was the bogo coupon?

Laura Webber

It was on their website- you had to enter a code first... check out their site!


Wasn't the meijer meal box coupon for the 89oz size? I didn't see any for the 59oz size.


Wasn't the mealbox coupon for the 89oz size? I didn't see any for the 59oz size.

Laura Webber

Hmm, I didn't realize there were two sizes... I hope not!


Laura, I figured they must be Meijer catalinas, but how/where did you get them? I've heard of people getting these types of catalinas but I have never, ever received them! Maybe I'm shopping the wrong Meijer...

Laura Webber

Weird, I assumed that all Meijer's had them!

But... I rarely receive these coupons when I am spending coupons... I usually find these kinds of catalinas hanging from other registers- where shoppers have left them behind!
