Meijer: FREE Kraft Cheese 1/31 Only

by Tara Kuczykowski on January 30, 2010 · 29 comments

Looking for one last chance to stock up on cheese? Then you'll want to hit Meijer this Sunday (1/31) for the opportunity to pick up 6 bags of Kraft shredded cheese or 6 blocks of Kraft cheese!

Kraft Shredded or Block Cheese, 3/$5
Get $1 off instantly wyb 3
Get $5 OYNO wyb 5 Kraft products Catalina

$1/2 Kraft or Cracker Barrel Natural Cheese printable
$1/2 Kraft or Cracker Barrel Natural Cheese, exp. 2-28-10 (SS 01/24/10)
FREE wyb 6 bags/blocks after 3 coupons and Catalina!

If you're looking to freeze your cheese, I'd recommend picking up the shredded variety. It seems to keep it's texture better than the block variety which gets crumbly.

Thanks, Saving Addiction!

Is this for the next weeks sale price? Or a special just for Sunday? Our new week does not begin till Thursday so just checking.

Hi, my Meijer has Meijer Brand Cheese 3/$5, but not Kraft. Is this just something you know about for just Sunday?


3 Emily January 30, 2010 at 9:19 am

I'm so excited. I actually printed out enough Kraft coupons to do this deal twice. Do you know if that catalinas will roll?


4 Amanda January 30, 2010 at 9:33 am

I am pretty sure it is the new sale price that is coming out this week but the cataliana is only good till Sunday so thats why it is one day only but the Kraft 3 for $5 is all week.

What store is this at? I know them as Kroger, Albertons, etc?

Just wanted to agree about the freezing of cheese. I have a family of 7 cheese lovers so whenever there is a GREAT deal on cheese like this one and my local Krogers!!! I stock up!! I have tried the block cheese but when you freeze block cheese it just is never the same once it is thawed. So if you are thinking of stocking up and freezing it for later get the shredded. I have never even tastes a difference in the taste or texture once it's thawed and my kids as fast as they go through it they wouldn't even notice if there was a difference. LOL

Our Meijer ad starts tomorrow, and this is a new sale price for the upcoming week. The Catalina is only good through the 31st, so that's why you can only do this scenario on 1/31.


8 Jackie January 30, 2010 at 12:06 pm

How do people know what deals will print from the catalina?


9 Tara Kuczykowski January 30, 2010 at 12:43 pm

A lot of times it's just word of mouth, Jackie, but the terms are generally printed on the Catalina that prints, so we have the full details.


10 Terese January 30, 2010 at 12:57 pm

Will the catalina roll? Someone asked, and I was wondering the same thing. I am pretty sure it will.


11 Schnicks January 30, 2010 at 1:31 pm

When we had the Kraft catalina deal at our HyVee it rolled. I got a lot of cheese very, very cheap!


12 Karin January 30, 2010 at 2:58 pm

This happened last Sunday at Kroger with their Mega Sale. Is it still available at Kroger or is it only going to be good for Meijers? The catalinas quit printing after last Sunday, so I was just wondering. Thanks!


13 Tammy January 30, 2010 at 2:59 pm

What does it mean for a catalina to "roll"?


14 Emily January 30, 2010 at 3:06 pm

It means that you can use the catalina that prints out when you do this deal to purchase the exact same deal and get another catalina. With this deal, you would purchase the 6 bags/bars of Kraft cheese using all the coupons and the instant $2 off (for buying 6), pay $5, get a $5 catalina good on your next order, and then turn around and do it again, buying another 6 cheeses and getting another $5 catalina at the end. Make sense?

I am really hoping that it does roll because I was just at Kroger doing the Mega event deals, and I found a blinkie near the Kraft cheese for $1/2 packages. I now have enough $1/2 Kraft cheese coupons to do this deal 3 times and get 18 bags of Kraft natural cheese for FREE!!! I can't wait for tomorrow!!


15 Emily January 30, 2010 at 3:07 pm

I forgot to mention that you would use the first $5 catalina that printed to pay for your second order, so you have no out of pocket expense for the second order. Guess that is an important part.


16 Carrie January 30, 2010 at 5:34 pm

I went to Kroger yesterday and the catalina did not work for the Kraft Cheese. I even tried two different transactions. Maybe it only works at other grocery stores.


17 Christina January 30, 2010 at 6:51 pm

Oh, that is good to know that the catalina is only good for tomorrow. I was planning on doing it and keeping the catalina to use for next time, but I guess I can't.


18 Dizzy Mommy January 30, 2010 at 9:00 pm

Ive been rolling the Kraft Catalina for the last couple weeks, I've had no problems.
Christina- The Catalina can be used on a future purchase, the coupon itself doesn't expire tomorrow. However you wont get the Catalina (it wont print off) because the promotion to get the Catalina (Kraft 5 for $5 promo) ends tomorrow on the 31st. But if you have the Catalina itself you will be able to use it $5 OYNO later in the week I think they are good for two weeks.


19 Kim January 30, 2010 at 9:01 pm

Christina- The catalina is not good only tomorrow...they are usually good for two weeks from the date they print. Tomorrow is the last day that the catalina will print when doing this purchase.

This catalina does roll. I have done this deal a few times with the Breakstone doubles cottage cheese as well.


20 Emily January 30, 2010 at 9:01 pm

The deal to get the catalina when you buy 5 Kraft cheeses is only through tomorrow, but the actual coupon that prints out shouldn't expire for probably a couple weeks, so you can keep it to use next time.


21 Location??? January 31, 2010 at 2:14 am

Do you know what Meijer's this deal works for? (location-wise)


22 Tara Kuczykowski January 31, 2010 at 11:29 am

It should work at all Meijer locations today only.


23 sarah January 31, 2010 at 12:13 pm

Is anyone having trouble with this deal? went to the meijer in bolingbrook, IL... didn't ring up as 3/$5, so they did it manually and I didn't get my $1/3 off. They had no idea what i was talking about -- is this just a glitch in the system or an advertised sale/discount?


24 Emily January 31, 2010 at 12:49 pm

I just did this deal at the Hilliard Rome Road Meijer (OH) - it worked perfectly, except that I decided to just keep the $5 catalinas for my next trip instead of roll them since I wasn't absolutely sure they would roll.

The cheese rings up at 3 for $5, then 34 cents is automatically deducted 3 times. It works twice if you buy 6 cheeses in one transaction. After coupons (assuming you use 3 of the $1/2 Qs and buy 6 cheeses), the total comes to $4.96, and a $5 catalina prints out at the end. I did 3 separate transactions and bought a total of 18 bags of cheese, spent $14.88 OOP, and got back 3 $5 coupons on your next order (they expire 2-14). My cashier was impressed!


25 Allison January 31, 2010 at 1:42 pm

I also went to the Meijer in Bolingbrook (near the promenade) The cheese was not on sale for 3 for $5 . I double checked at the price check it came up for 3.79 each. Sarah-how did you get them to enter it manually, I couldn't find an ad showing this sale price and the cashier I asked had no idea what I was talking about.


26 sarah January 31, 2010 at 1:46 pm

I guess i just got a nice cashier... i told them it should be 3/$5 and she changed it. Maybe this is just Meijer's out of IL?? I looked at the add when i got home, and its just the Meijer brand cheese... hmmm...


27 ILona January 31, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Our ad starts on Thursday, so that is why I don't think it will work for IL stores.


28 Bethany Goff January 31, 2010 at 9:56 pm

I went to the Meijer in Davison, MI, and they had the same price - 3/$5 with $1 WYB 3. I had 3 of the $1/2 coupons, so I got $6. To my dismay, the Catalina generator ran out of paper before printing any coupons! I had used a self-serve lane, so I went to the cashier and asked her about and explained what the Catalina should have been. She called someone from Customer Service, they came over, got the details, went back and talked to someone about how to reprint Catalinas. They ended up giving me 2 "Customer Happiness" coupons for $2.50 each, which are good for a month! They made me happy! lol Thanks for letting us know this great deal. Otherwise, I wouldn't have known to ask for the Catalina. :)


29 Bethany Goff January 31, 2010 at 9:57 pm

sorry about the typos in that post above! lol Should have said $1 OFF WYB 3, and that I got 6 packages. Oops!
