Old El Paso cheese deal

11 Oct

Not sure if everyone has noticed this instore or not – the boxes of Chicken Fajita Old El Paso kits have a great new coupon on them! Buy one kit to get the coupon and the next time you buy another kit you get a free small bag of Kraft cheese, or 6$ toward a large bag of cheese!  The kits are 2 for 7$ at Safeway this week and the cheese in on sale for 6.99$ – works out to a pretty great deal!!!

There were also coupons on the boxes of Carnation hot chocolate powder – get a free Stouffers sandwich!

I like coupons like this – really helps to cut down the grocery bills!! We did the fajita deal a few times, just keep buying 2 more and getting the coupons. The cheese freezes very well, and it’s always handy to have in the freezer. The coupon is good until january too I think – keep an eye out for some good sales on those kits when you’re out shopping!

What other good deals like this are out there right now?

  1. The cheese coupons are on some of the Stuff and Stand, as well as the 1/2 hard 1/2 soft Taco kits. Fabulous deal especially if you still have any save.ca Old El Paso 1$ off coupons kicking around!

  2. Awesome! I only saw it on the fajita kits – will have to keep checking around. How much are those kits at other stores, and the cheese?

  3. Depends on where you shop… Regular price at the MarketPlace is around 5$!!! I try to never spend more then 3.50 on one however… I picked up 2 at Sobeys last week on 10% Tuesday for 3.69 each (OOP less then 3.50), and picked up two big bags of cheese that were on for 6.99 (-6$ from previous coupons). I’ve seen the big bags for 5.99 inthe past but have only ever bought them when I have a save.ca coupon to go with it… I personally believe in shredding my own cheese for way less $ LOL! I must say that the Mexicana cheese was very flavorful however, and I can’t wait to try out the 4 chs Italiano on a lasagna next week! You never know… I may get hooked!

    Just a FYI that the Taco kits I bought last week are best before Feb 10th, the cheese coupons on the box Jan 31st, and the cheese I bought Jan 13th so no freezing is necessary! If anyone still has any $ off the Taco/Fajita kits lets talk! I’m always up for a trade!

  4. Hi, I don’t normally buy the kits, as I am not a big fan of corn tortillas, which was what the kit with the coupon contained. But i used those little tortillas in a baked enchilada dish to use them up (along with the regular type i normally buy) and it turned out fine, so it is a good deal. Plus you get all the other packs… sauce, seasoning, etc in the same kit.

  5. I normally don’t buy the shredded cheese either – but for 99 cents a bag you can’t beat it! 🙂 I’m freezing it all – I’ve bought 8 so far!

  6. I bought those at the Safeway in Lindenwoods. The kits were on 2/$7. I bought two this time around. Cheese was on for $6.99 each. The girl didn’t read the coupon so I ended up getting the cheese completely free!! I need to go back to her!! And I’m not sure how it worked, or what she did, but my bill was less than $7. I paid a total of $6.60 which is less than the sale price of the two kits! My receipt says I saved $22.94!

  7. I checked out the Carnation hot chocolates yesterday – there are two different coupons, depending on the type of hot chocolate. A few of the boxes have the coupons for a free Stouffers Mini Slider pockets, and some of the boxes have a coupon for a free bag of Aero bubbles (mint or milk chocolate). I got the mixed box of hot chocolates (Coffee Crisp, Rolo, and After Eight) and they came with the Aero coupon.
