4 Cans of Maxwell House Coffee and 5lbs of Sugar for $3.16 at Meijer!!!


Yes you read the title correctly! It's a spectacular, stock-up deal at Meijer this week....if your a coffee drinker of course.

First, the 10.5 -11.5 oz cans of Maxwell House Coffee are on sale for $1.79.
Buy 3 Cans and get a 5lb bag of Pioneer Sugar (priced at $2.49) for FREE

It gets better...there is also a Catalina Deal (What's a Catalina? See Below) that works like this. Buy 2 or 3 cans of Maxwell House coffee, Get a $1 OYNO (on your next order) Catalina or buy 4 cans of Maxwell House coffee and get a $4 OYNO Catalina.

Together it looks like this:
4 Cans Maxwell House Coffee @ $1.79 = $7.16
1 5 lb Bag of Pioneer Sugar @ $2.49 = $2.49
Minus $2.49 for Free Sugar =-$2.49
You pay................................................. $7.16 OOP (Out of Pocket)
Get a $4 OYNO Catalina...Really like paying only $3.16!!!

Have any Maxwell House coupons like I did?? If so, it gets even sweeter!

Best of all is if you choose to do this same transaction a second time, use the $4 catalina from the first purchase, pay $3.16 OOP and get another $4 catalina. Repeat as many times as you'd like.

What's a Catalina? You know those coupons that the cashier hands you with your receipt? Those are known as Catalinas. They are named after the company who provides this type of promotion for many stores. Catalina promotions aren't usually advertised deals. So blogs like this are the best place to find out about them. One word of caution.....for whatever reason... it's been my experience that the Catalina printers at the self checkout lanes don't work. If you're expecting a Catalina to print, don't use self checkout.

Becky,

I was wondering where you got the information for the catalina? Was it in an ad? I'm inquiring just in case it doesn't print and I have to go to Customer Service.

Thanks,

Hi Michelle,
I saw the Catalina info on a shelf tag near the coffee price tag. Good luck!

Becky,

I just got back from Meijer and my coffee spree was successful. Although, I did hit a snag. I went through the self checkout and the first transaction went fine, but for the second transaction the $4 coupon didn't print. I told the lady and she sent me to customer service to get a hand written one.

I bet Meijer's make a lot of money on those things not working right. Most people wouldn't realize that it didn't print.

So I had some extra time invested, but it turned out well. The hardest part was trying to decide what flavor of coffee to get for my grandmother. She'll get a kick out of getting some coffee for Christmas! I just wish I'd had some coupons to make it a sweeter deal. Thanks again for the detailed post!

Hi Michelle,
I'm glad this worked out for you! I don't understand why the catalina coupons don't print at the self checkouts. I'm surprised that you got one on your first transaction. I very glad you did though....I'm sure having one catalina print made your stop at customer service much easier.
