I seen on another blog...sorry don't remember which one...maybe but it works with the vienna sausage which wags has on sale for 39 cents or 49cents!


2 Julie April 7, 2009 at 5:07 pm

Do the cake mixes work for the promo since the brownie mix is all that's pictured? I really hope so!

It says Duncan Hines products, so any product should work, Julie!

Thanks for the tip, Carrie. The cake mixes are probably a better deal for my family with all of the birthdays we have coming up, but that's a great buy for anyone that likes Vienna Sausages!


4 Rachel April 7, 2009 at 5:33 pm

I've read that is a coupon booklet worth $5 not an actual rebate check...could be wrong though.


5 Karen April 7, 2009 at 5:33 pm

If you are within the Publix region, the cake mixes are B1G1F right now. In GA, you do not have to buy an even number either- they are technically half off. So, I bought 5 cake mixes at 82-3 cents each. I used 5 .35 coupons that were doubled for 70cents off each box. Including tax on the pre-coupon amounts, I paid <= .88 for 5 cake mixes (can't remember whether these are taxed at the 2% food or 6% rate)


6 Kristi April 7, 2009 at 5:44 pm

At Ingles the DH cake mixes are on sale for $1 - use the .35 off coupon from 3/29SS doubled = .30 per box.


7 Tara Kuczykowski April 7, 2009 at 5:54 pm

That's correct, Rachel! It's $5 in savings on a future purchase.


8 LoriAnn April 7, 2009 at 6:52 pm

And I think I'm reading right??? You can send more then one REBATE to your house??? But if we get them at the price with the coupon do we get back the $5.00 still/


9 Tara Kuczykowski April 7, 2009 at 7:00 pm

That's right, LoriAnn. But you're not actually getting $5 cash back. You're getting $5 in savings to use on a future purchase, so likely it's a coupon booklet of some sort.

I love this site! Thanks so much for posting all of the things that You do! I always try to share the links too because it's so great!!

I am not able to figure out the teal sidebar coupons. Does anyone have any tips. I can't find it. Thanks!!


12 Tara Kuczykowski April 7, 2009 at 8:10 pm

Chris, in the far right sidebar under the Printable Coupons heading is a teal-colored widget that you can print coupons directly from. Sometimes it appears as just a ad though – not sure why.


13 Julie April 7, 2009 at 11:28 pm

I agree with the first post.... I found on this:

"Armour Vienna Sausage $0.49 each after in-ad coupon
Buy five, spend $2.45 out of pocket and submit for this rebate: “Buy Five Items, get $5 in Savings Back”
FREE plus get $5 back in coupon savings!! (Thanks Marcia)"

It's a great deal but, I don't know of a recipe that involves vienna sausage.


14 Julie April 7, 2009 at 11:31 pm

It was in Common Sense With Money not Oops! Just making sure the credit goes to the right Mom!


15 Shannon April 7, 2009 at 11:59 pm

Chris - if you're not using Internet Explorer (or maybe one other browser) the widget might not work. It doesn't work for me when I use Google Chrome as my browser, so I have to switch to IE when I want to print coupons. Hope that helps!


16 Rachel @ Surviving The Stores April 8, 2009 at 10:09 pm

Duncan Hines cake mixes are also $1 at the Albertsons in the Dallas/Fort Worth area (not sure about the rest of the country). Time to stock up on cake mix! :)

17 D April 12, 2009 at 1:33 pm

I can't believe no one else has asked this (that I have seen anywhere), but what exactly are the $5 in coupons for?? The same product that was submitted, so the Duncan Hines?? Would it be 5 $1 off coupons, 10 .50 off coupons, or what? Thank you :)


18 Tara Kuczykowski April 12, 2009 at 4:40 pm

D, that's a great question, but I've actually never seen the answer anywhere. I'll see if I can email someone to find out exactly what we'll receive.


19 D April 12, 2009 at 7:20 pm

Thanks, Tara! It would be interesting to know. As I think we all know, the website for the program just has the form on it and the little bit of fine print at the bottom doesn't expand upon much. Also, no phone number there.


20 Kirsten April 13, 2009 at 12:37 pm

I got my cake mixes at Kroger during the 10 for $10 deal. Kroger triples my 35¢ coupon (up to the price of the product, three per transaction) which makes them free.

I have printed out my rebate form, but I'm not expecting much since it's a coupon book, not a check. But hey, my cake mixes were already free so this is just a bonus either way!


21 anthony mack April 16, 2009 at 1:15 pm

to whom it may concern please send me more imfor mation and coupons onyour products thanks


22 Joy April 29, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Lucky all of you...... as a followup to my comments a few days ago.
Here in SW Michigan..few of your daily offers work. Mostly-our stores say "1 coupon per item", its hard to get an item cheap or free. As an example--I had a 35 cent coupon for Hefty freezer bags. On the box was an orange 20 cent sticker saying "use now". They told me I could use either the 20 sticker from the box OR just the 35 cent coupon. So, I'm confused how you all are getting to use 2 diff coupons on one item. Also, I had a $1 off on mustard--but the store had marked the every day price of .98 up to $1.49..making it far from free. Bummer


23 Tara Kuczykowski April 30, 2009 at 10:25 am

Joy, you can't use a peelie with another manufacturer coupon because those are both manufacturer coupons. People that are using two coupons are using a store issued coupon along with a manufacturer coupon. For example, Target issues Target store coupons and you can pair these with a manufacturer coupon on the same item.


24 Joy April 30, 2009 at 10:54 am

So.....I will visit Target and see how this works? I have a manufacturers coupon (printed from Smartsouce) for Buy 1 Easy Mac CUP--get one free. I also printed a Target coupon that says $1 off with the purchase of two Kraft Easy Bac meals. It "shows" a 4 pk, but doesn't say you have to buy (2-4pks), it just says "purchase of two Kraft EM meals". So, A) do I take 3 cups to the checkout--one being the buy one get one free, and then use the $1 coupon to pay for the remaining 2? B) OR, should I be able to take only 2 to the checkout--one of them being the free one, and then use the $1 coupon to pay for the remaining one...making them both free? In my neck of the woods...I'm guessing they will tell me "its says BUY (as in pay for 2), to use the $1 off, and then the 3rd one is the free.
OR, they will say you have to buy the 4pk (doesn't say it-but shows it), and the 4 pks are priced higher than buying 4 single cups (at least for this week). Wish me luck?


25 Tara Kuczykowski April 30, 2009 at 5:04 pm

It will probably vary by cashier, Joy. I don't advocate using a BOGO manufacturer coupon along with a dollar/cents off manufacturer coupon on only two items; however, in this case you're using a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon on two, so I think you're okay to do that.


26 Prudence June 15, 2009 at 1:45 pm

Has anyone received their rebate coupons yet? I just received some post cards in the mail saying that my submission was declined because they only offer one rebate offer per household. Does anyone have the original rebate form? I can't find mine and I can't find it online either.


27 Ellen June 15, 2009 at 5:56 pm

I just received a card back today from them saying that my offer had been denied because I had already submitted this. ?? I submitted 2x only - not the entire 6 times even. Haven't received 1st offer yet so hopefully those coupons will come. I'm thinking of calling and finding out what the problem is. Anyone else know?

Ellen´s last blog post..Brimming


28 Prudence June 15, 2009 at 6:28 pm

I did not receive any coupons either. One thing I did figure out....The corner of the card says something like "Real Meal Offer" or something like that. The offer we were submitting is called " Great Taste Big Savings Offer". The card said you have 30 days to resubmit so I sent the cards in with a letter saying that a mistake was made when processed. We'll see what happens.


29 Jennifer June 15, 2009 at 10:20 pm

I got the rejection postcards in the mail today too. I submitted four times and got 3 postcards back saying it's limited to one. I do still have the original rebate form which clearly says limit 6 per household. If anyone finds out more about this, please post again.


30 Jennifer June 15, 2009 at 10:27 pm

Prudence, you are very right--the "real meal offer" was from March and the details of that offer can be read here.


31 Ellen June 16, 2009 at 10:21 am

I just spoke to a very nice woman from the Great Taste Big Savings offer. She clarified that it was actually not 6 offers, but 6 coupons per household address. But she is looking into the reason why we received a card back from the Real Meal Deal offer rather than the Great Taste offer. I'm waiting to hear back from her. She may even leave a message on this site!

32 Prudence June 16, 2009 at 11:37 am

That is interesting. Thanks for sharing that information. However, the wording on this offer was quite poor. It gave the impression this could be sent in 6 times. There were a lot of people who read that and took it to mean it could be sent in 6 times. I have to say that I am rather disappointed in this company. I am anxious to hear what she says. Thanks!


33 Tara Kuczykowski June 16, 2009 at 12:05 pm

Oh, gosh, I'm sorry, everyone! Yes, the wording was very misleading. It definitely gave the impression that you could submit 6 times.


34 Prudence June 26, 2009 at 1:39 pm

I just received coupons (rebates) for ALL of the forms I sent in. They must have decided to honor up to 6 submissions. The coupons are ok - not super fantastic. However, It does say something positive about this company that they did honored up to 6.


35 Fran November 8, 2009 at 9:45 am

how can you offer Buy 5 items Get $5 in savings in todays paper Newsday 11/8/09) and when you go to the web sit it says between 4 /5/09 and 5/9/09. That was 6 months agoThis is for Duncan Hines.


36 Tara Kuczykowski November 8, 2009 at 9:50 am

Fran, this post is dated April 7th, 2009.


37 Sue Maier November 8, 2009 at 4:52 pm

If this expired in June, 2009 WHY is it still being offered in my Sunday paper of Nov. 08, 2009? And, WHY is it still on the internet.


38 Prudence November 8, 2009 at 5:06 pm

I guess that question is best answered by the company (Pinnacle Foods?)


39 Tara Kuczykowski November 8, 2009 at 7:37 pm

The offer in today's paper is basically the same thing that was run last April. If you click through to the Great Taste Big Savings site, you'll see that they updated it and the offer is valid between 11/8/09 and 12/7/09.


40 Joan Pursell November 8, 2009 at 8:33 pm

What's going on here? Our Sunday paper had the offer in today Nov. 8, 2009
