It was like I got paid $14.62 to take home the groceries you see in the picture!

I mentioned in an earlier deals post, a $25 in free groceries promotion that Kraft is running. Click here to go to their site and get all of the details including a printable shopping list of the participating products.

Even with NO coupons, you are still getting $25 in free groceries. With coupons, this deal is a moneymaker! Here's how it works: you spend $25 in participating products (*before* coupons). At checkout, after you pay, you will get a $5 catalina coupon for your next purchase. Also, a rebate form will print to get the $20 back in a rebate. The rebate is limit one per household.

Mindi at Moms Need To Know has a list of all the coupon matchups for participating products. Check out her list here.

This is what I did:
Bought 7 Velveeta Shells & Cheese Cups @ $1 each. Used a b1g1f coupon & a 2 free cups coupon I had from Kraft FirstTaste. Used the b1g1f coupon from last week's paper & a $0.55 off 1 coupon (that doubled to $1.10) I received from some other mailer. After the coupons I paid $1.90 & got credit for $7.
Bought 1 Capri Sun juice pack box for $2. Used a $0.75 off (that doubled to $1.50) that I received in a coupon mailer. After coupon I paid $0.50 & got credit for $2.
Bought 3 packages of Kraft 2% milk shredded cheese @ $1.66 each. Used 3 $0.50 off coupons that were in a tearpad at the store a few weeks ago (that doubled to $1 each). After coupons I paid $1.98 & got credit for $5.
Bought 1 DiGiorno Flatbread @ $2.50 and used a $1 off coupon from a recent mailer. Paid $1.50, got credit for $2.50.
Bought 1 CPK frozen pizza @ $5.50 and used a $1 off coupon from this week's paper. Paid $4.50, got credit for $5.50.
Finally, I bought 1 bottle of A1 @ $3 and used the $2 off coupon from this week's paper. Paid $1, got credit for $3.

Total credit towards promo: $25. Total amount spent after coupons: $11.38.
Received $5 Catalina for this promo and also a $1 Catalina for purchasing 2 cups of Velveeta shells. After I receive the $20 rebate it will be a $14.62 money-maker!

I know that I had a bunch of unique coupons, but even if you do this without ANY coupons, you are still nabbing free groceries! Be sure to hurry as the last day for this deal is 8/23!

I did mine on Saturday! I mailed the rebate form and my receipt in today! Hopefully that's what I was supposed to do. It's not very specific. :)
