First, if you are new to working deals at Acme, please read the background info on one of my earlier deals posts. This will explain how the coupons double & how to print two copies of the printable coupons.

There are a *bunch* of Catalina deals going on this week- Catalinas are coupons that print at the register that you use on your next transaction. There is nothing stopping you from doing a transaction, getting your coupons and then coming back to finish the rest of your shopping and use those Catalinas. I do this sometimes if I really want to cut what I spend out of pocket, or if I think I might forget to use the Catalinas before they expire (which is usually within a few weeks). Otherwise just hold on to them and you get a sweet discount on your next visit.

Here are the different Catalina promos:

Get a $10 off coupon when you buy 10 participating General Mills products. You only have to buy 10 items, not a specific dollar amount. General Mills also has a bunch of printable and newspaper coupons so you should be able to get a really good deal on some things that you need. Of course, you should work this deal to get what you need, but this is the one of the cheapest scenarios using only printable coupons:
2 Betty Crocker frosting tubs at $1.79 each. Use two of the $0.55 cents off coupons available here (they will double to $1.10 off each).
2 Betty Crocker Warm Delights bowls for $1.66 each. Use two of the $0.55 cents off coupons availabe here (they will also double to $1.10 off each).
2 Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits at 2 for $2.50. Use the $0.50 off 2 coupon available here (will double to $1 off).
2 bags of Chex Mix at $2 each. Use two of the $0.60 cents off coupons here (will double to $1.20 off).
2 bags of Cheerios snack mix at $2 each. Use two of the $0.60 cents off coupons here (will double to $1.20 off).

You will have purchased 10 participating items, will spend $7.20 out of pocket after the coupons, and get the $10 off your next order, working out to $2.80 overage! Hooray :)

Get a $10 off coupon when you buy $25 in participating products. Check the circular for the whole list, but they include Hunts canned tomatoes, Ro*tel (which I love, lol), Wesson oil, Marie Callender's frozen dinners and pies, Pam spray and more. This one isn't as great as the General Mills deal, and there seem to be no coupon match-ups for it, but if you need some of these items, then it would be a good time to stock up.
This one's not a Catalina, but $5 will come off your total instantly at checkout when you buy $25 of homelife (Acme's home goods brand) products.

Non-coupon deals:

The Acme circular has a few of its own coupons in it this week. There are Buy One Get Two Free coupons for Dynamo laundry detergent and Hatfield Canadian ham, there is a free bananas with Skippy peanut butter coupon, and more.

There is a Meal Deal running where you buy one each of these four items: Tyson ready-to-eat chicken or steak, one Uncle Ben's ready rice, one Mann's cut veggies (like Broccoli Wokly) and one Fresh Express baby salad blend and $4.50 will instantly come off your total at checkout.

Acme brand Cranberry juices are on sale for $1.88 each.

Printable coupon deals:

There is a $0.75 off one Dannon multipack coupon available here. Dannon yogurt multipacks are 50% off this week, with prices ranging from $1.24 to $2.99. The coupon will double to $1.50 off, so you could either get one for free or up to $1.49.

Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite and Coke Zero 12-pack cans are on sale 3 for $12. There is a coupon in the circular to get an 8-pack of 12oz. bottles free. If you use My Coke Rewards, you can print $1 off a 12-pack coupons, to get this down to $9 for three 12-packs of cans and the free 8-pack of bottles.

Stonyfield Farm Organic yogurt 6oz. cups are on sale 10 for $6. Use two of the $0.50 off 3 coupons available here (they will double to $1 off each) to get 10 cups for $4.

Cabot chunk or shredded cheese is $3 this week. Use the $0.30 off 1 coupon available here (it will double to $0.60 off) to get it for $2.40 each.

That's all I see for the week. If you have any questions or see anything else I don't have, please feel free to put it in the comments!
