How to get your best savings at Meijer's 10 for $10, get 11th for free!

You probably didn't know there was a science to shopping at Meijer's 10 for $10, get the 11th free, but there is, and I want you to be able to get your best savings at Meijer!

  • 1st - Meijer will not accept a coupon on a free product (which is your 11th item)
  • 2nd - at the register, be sure that the 11th item (your free item) is rung up as your 11th item.  This may take a little more paying attention at the register, but it will be worth your savings. 
  • 3rd - Make sure your 11th item is an item that you do not have a coupon for.
  • 4th - You can do as many 10 for $10, get the 11th free in 1 transaction. 
  • 5th - Be as organized as possible when you are at the register!

Here is a scenario for you..........

Buy 2 Green Giant Frozen Steamers - @ $1.00 ea = $2.00
Buy 2 Wolf Chili with beans - @ $1.00 ea. = $2.00
Buy 2 Mento's Up2u Gum - @ $1.00 ea. = $2.00
Buy 2 Chex Mix @ $1.00 ea. = $2.00
Buy 2 Hunt's Tomatoes 14.5 oz - @ $1.00 ea. = $2.00
Buy 1 item for your 11th (free) item (be sure this is an item that you don't have a coupon produce! - be sure, at the register, that this is rung up as your 11th item!
Total before coupons = $10.00

Use 1 - $0.50/2 Green Giant Steamers coupon (12-11-SS)
Use 2 - $0.40/1 Wolf Chili with beans coupon (1-22-11 SS)
Use 2 - $1.00/1 Mento's Up2u Gum coupon (1-1-11 SS)
Use 1  - $0.50/2 Chex Mix coupon (1-8-11 GM)
Use 1 - $0.40/2 Hunt's Tomato printable
Total oop - $3.60 (for 11 items) - on the average - $0.33 an item!

There are many other scenario's that you can do with this sale!   I would love to hear some of your scenarios!!  I hope this helped!!

There is also an mperk for the chex mix and pizza rolls - also part of the 10/10, and there are higher value coupons available online than were in the circulars.

It's also bonus box tops week! Buy 10 box top items (many available on 10/10 sale) and get 70 bonus box tops!

Thanks for pointing out that the 11th item should be rung up in that order.

Unfortunately Heather, the mperks from the pizza rolls and chex mix are manufacture coupons too. Therefore cannot be combined with another manufacture coupon. It can be quite confusing, so I did a post about the different mPerks. I have had other emails about this subject!

Thanks about the box tops!!! I appreciate your input!
