First, a little background information for working your deals at Acme-
Acme has *the best* coupon doubling policy in my area. While most NJ stores will double the value of a coupon up to $1 (a $0.75 cent coupon would max out at $1), Acme will double the value of any coupons under $1. So if you have a $0.99 cent coupon it will be doubled to $1.98 off. This extra savings can make all the difference.

When Acme has items on quantity sale (such as 2 for $4), you do not need to buy that quantity to get the sale price! Only if they specifiy “MUST buy two”, which is rare!

Ok, now a little printable coupon information-

When you print online coupons you may need to install some software. It is mandatory, but very quick. Also, there is usually a print limit of two coupons to be printed per computer. When you print the coupon, hit the back button a few times for the coupon to print again. You can try this as many times as you like, but usually the software will recognize the print limit and you only get two coupons per computer.

Here we go-
These are the best deals I see for the week. They aren't stellar, but it's a start!

Item of the week- Duncan Hines Family Brownies or Cake Mix (Select Varieties) 10 for $10 (you do not have to buy 10, one will be $1) Use the printable here for the new deluxe carrot cake variety. If it's available at your store, it will be free!

Kellogg’s Cereal, 25.5 oz. Raisin Bran, 17 oz. Apple Jacks, 17 oz. Froot Loops, 23 oz. Frosted Flakes, 24 oz. Frosted Bite Size Mini Wheats, 17.2 oz. Corn Pops on sale 4 for $10, $2.50 each. Use the printable here to get each box for $1.50

Campbell’s Select Harvest Soup cans or microwavable bowls are buy one get one free. If you got a free can coupon in the mail you can use it to get two cans for free, or use the 50 cents off two coupon from the newspaper to get $1 (after doubling) off two cans.

On the second page of the Acme circular is a $5 off any two TGIFriday’s Complete Skillet Meals coupon. Since they are on sale for $6.99 each, after the coupon they will be $4.49 each. Not sure if these are any good, if you like them, let me know. I like the Bertolli meals, but Wanchai Ferry skillet meals are eww!

Minute Original or Ready to Serve rice is on sale this week for $2 each, use the $0.40 off coupon (will double to $0.80) from the paper to get a 14 oz. box for $1.20.

Fiber One Toaster Pastries are on sale for $2 a box, use the $1 off coupon that comes with the Fiber One cereal sample (sign up at and get a box for $1.

Love, Bay

Mum...I have a question. You have to ask them to double the coupon, right? I'm assuming they won't just do it for you automatically (at least I don't think they've done it for me when I've used coupons...)

Go to it girl...proud of you, although I have not shopped at Acme in years...may have to give it another look..and also start getting the paper how many hours a week do you think it takes you to accomplish this..have you every had almost your whole grocery bill paid for by coupons like I have seen with others that do the same?

Hello Sarah! No, you do not have to ask them, the doubling comes up automatically. Be sure to use your Supercard with it, but the doubling still happens, even on coupons that say 'do not double'!
