HUGE Kellogg's Sale at Smiths

It was reported that some of the Smith's stores in town are advertising the Kellogg's/Keebler deal at 4/$4 instead of the 4/$6 that all the other stores are advertising. I researched a bit and found the following stores are participating in the 4/$4:

Camino El Norte/Ann

So of course I had to go check it out. I spent $15.00 on everything pictured above (using the coupons from the Kellogg's insert in the 8/2 SS and the Dannon coupons from 8/9 SS). You can purchase 8 participating Kellogg's/Keebler items per transaction to get the promo pricing of

So here is what I bought:

1 gallon of milk
1 bag of Hormel Pepperoni
1 Danimals Drinkable yogurts 6 pk
4 Dannon Activia yogurts
8 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats
4 boxes of Eggos
4 boxes of Keebler cookies
2 boxes of Yogos fruit snacks
1 box of Rice Krispies (which had a coupon insert inside for more Kellogg's coupons, so I will be going back to the store for more deals)
1 box of Fruit Loops

YEAH! What a great deal! If you live near one of these locations, I highly recommend taking advantage of this awesome deal. Let me know if you have any questions!!

Kraft Promotion Questions

Albertson's is now advertising for the Kraft Catalina/Rebate Promotion. Around the blogosphere there have been a lot of questions and confusion. For example, Kraft has said that they will only accept a rebate for with the items that are listed on the official grocery list from there website. Albertson's is advertising a few other items that are not part on the rebate list. (Example, Jello-O gelatin individual boxes). Also, there has been some confusion on whether of not the $5 catalina will print when you use coupons to make the total go below $25.00.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you have found out about this promotion, if you have already purchased items.
