Recession Payback: ConAgra Foods Printable Coupons

ConAgra Foods Coupons
I hesitated to post this promotion because I feel like the Recession Payback game is in poor taste; however, I'll leave the final judgment up to you all since there are some really good coupons offered at the end.

A tip from KC Penny Pinchin' Mama:

Be sure to register for your coupon, and then when you pick one to print, hit your browser's back button and you can go back in and print another coupon. However, do not select your next coupon until your current one is done printing. Do this 8 times and you can grab all [eight] coupons.

Coupons available:

  • $0.50/5 Banquet Dinners
  • $1.00/2 Marie Callender's Frozen Meals
  • $0.50/1 La Choy Product
  • $1.00/3 Hunt's Products
  • $1.00/3 Manwich Products
  • $0.50/2 Chef Boyardee Products
  • $0.50/1 Reddi Wip Product
  • $1.00/2 Orville Reddenbacher Products

Thanks, Tracie!

I think it's great--a bit of comic relief! Thanks.

I thought it was cute and fun and a little stress reliever, plus if you sign up you can keep playing get as many coupons as you want! :)

Good luck getting it to work, though - it kept freezing my computer and then never printed a coupon at all. :(

Bummer! This kept freezing up for me. I was never able to play. I'll have to try again later.

I kinda agree with you Tara - I think it's a little distasteful. Definitely not something I want my kids to see. Good coupons though...

i would say "violent" is a stretch. i let my son play it and he thought it was hilarious. i guess it's all a matter of opinion!

Lol! It is a little 'wrong', but it made me laugh anyway :)

I can see how Con Agra and their ad agency thought this was funny and would appeal to the masses, but I agree with you, Tara, that this shows very poor taste!

I saw this game posted on a different blog and was able to print 4 of the Hunt's coupons all with a unique serial number before it gave me a message saying I had printed the offer before. The coupon is for $1 off 3 Hunt's products so tomato sauce will be free at Walgreens after in ad coupon tomorrow!
I will have to try to go back and see if I can get some other coupons for the different brands.

Note: Sometimes on the Smartsource coupons it says "fraudulent attempt to print detected" when you click the back button, but if you click once more it lets you print up to a point - in this case 4 prints for me!

Did anyone notice how odd the coupons were? They say ConAgra on them but they dont say what they are for on the actual coupon....that part is in a big box above the actual coupon. So, I guess I have to carry around that big sheet of paper (ad) telling me what the coupon is for?

I thought it was funny.. what I actually got to see anyways.. And it does say its not for the young or the politically correct.. That warning was enough imo. ;-)

My computer was freezing up too and no coupon print for me either.. It said Java was disabled on my C.. bother.. I print coupons 24/7.. guess it was just a tough one.. or maybe too many people were trying to access it at the same time. who knows. :D

Oh, I can certainly see how many people would find it amusing! I guess I just am not in a position to make light of the Recession with my husband being on month 10 of being unemployed, so perhaps I'm being a little overly sensitive.

I finally got a coupon to print. I found it rather annoying, although commical still a lot of effort for a cheap value coupon!

The Hunts 3/$1 is going to be on sale 3/$1 at Walgreens ---- FREE Hunts ----see Sunday's ad!

Crazy game. Wish I didn't have to play it to get each coupon, but oh well :)

BTW, the coupon for the popcorn is $1/2 not $1/1...

Melissa, I was wondering the same thing, too. I hope the coupons will be accepted, but I find it odd that one is supposed to carry around a half-sheet of paper to indicate the product and value! Oh well...I'll give it a try. Anyone else use these coupons yet? (Marie Callender's pasta meal coupons.)

I took advantage of the free hunts at Walgreens. The store was out the week of the $1/3 Walgreens deal, so I got a raincheck. I had no problems (well except the cashier wasn't very coupon friendly, but the manager was). No issues with the size of the coupon. I folded it so maybe that helped. So far, no one cares what size a coupon is. They may have to fold it to put it away.
