This is one of my favorite places to find great deals! I usually am only able to make a Meijer trip every couple of weeks.
Getting Started at Meijer
First you need to figure out when the sale runs for your favorite Meijer Store. Most areas run from Sunday to Saturday. However, Indianapolis region and Chicago region run from Wednesday to Tuesday. I personally have two options where I live. I can go north and get the Sun-Sat sales or I can drive the same distance south and get the Weds to Tues deals. This helps me plan a little better because I can hit the Indy area if I miss the Kokomo sales. Sometimes the prices vary slightly from store to store.
You can view the weekly ad on www.meijer.com
You will also want to sign up for the Meijer Mealbox. This a valuable source of Meijer coupons. You can also create your shopping list and access recipes at Meijer Mealbox.
Meijer accepts all coupons. They have a right to limit quantities and refuse any coupon that looks suspicious. I’ve never had a problem using coupons at Meijer. Internet coupons are accepted.
Meijer doubles coupons up to .50. So a coupon with a face value of .35 will actually be worth .70 at Meijer. .There is limit of (2) of the same coupons that they will double. So if you have (3) .50 cereal coupons, they will only double (2) of those. Keep that in mind when planning your trip. You may to have separate your shopping into two trips or two separate orders to get your maximum savings.
Meijer also has manufacturer’s coupons that will “Spit” out at the register. These are called Catalinas. Sometimes, they will have deals where if you buy a certain # of a product, you will get $5 off your next order! Don’t miss out on these coupons! (Sometimes I go right back into the store to use them so I don’t forget to use them or don’t have to time to get back to Meijer before the expiration date!)
You will notice in the ad if there is a limit on a particular item. Usually it will be limit 2, etc. If it is something you want to stock up, you can make multiple trips in the same week. Another way, is to shop with your spouse/kids and have them place an order.
Buy One Get One Free Sales
At Meijer, if it is a Buy One Get One Free Sale, you can use TWO coupons if you have them.
Manufacturer’s Coupon & Store Coupons
You can use one manufacturer’s coupon and one store coupon per item purchased. This is a trick most people get confused about. Since the manufacturer is reimbursing the manufacturer and the store is reimbursing the other coupon, you are allowed to use these two types of coupons for one item. Check the top of your coupon if you are unsure if it is a store coupon or a manufacturer’s coupon.
Meijer does offer Rain Checks. You can ask for them at the register or the service desk. It helps if you have the ad with you.
If it is a 10 for $10 sale, you do not have buy $10 to get the item for $1. Stores advertise “Mix & Match” to make you think you have to buy 10 to get the sale price. You can buy 10, you can buy 1, or you can buy 11 and still get the item for $1.00. It is the same with 3 for $5, etc. The only time you do have to buy the quantity state is when the ad specifically states it. Meijer usually has 10/$10 sales with the 11th item free. In this instance you would have to buy 11 items.
Meijer Credit Card
You will earn $10 certificates after you spend X amount of dollars, 10% off your entire first purchase, 1% back to the school of your choice, Upromise Savings, and other exclusive savings throughout the year. (One week, it was 10% off general merchandise, 5% off groceries on a Monday – saved me an extra $16.00). But if you do sign up, make sure you pay it off every month and pay it on time…otherwise, you will lose anything you have saved by using the card! You can apply online HERE.
