Martin's: Old El Paso Moneymaker



Martin's is having a sale on Old El Paso products this week. The seasoning packets are on sale for .56 cents. I purchased six packets of various flavors and used three $1.00/2 coupons from the Cinco de Mayo booklet. My total was .36 cents for SIX packets of seasoning--just .06 cents each plus tax. The best part is that I received a $3.00 catalina coupon good off my next meat or chicken purchase. I received this coupon for purchasing six Old El Paso products. These seasoning packets netted me a profit of $2.64. I'm all out of Old El Paso coupons. :( If any readers have Old El Paso coupons available for trade, please let me know.

sara,

there are quite a few Old El Paso coupons for sale on ebay. It might be worth your while to check there. (There's even one mailing from Morgantow, so it would get there pretty quick.)

Good luck finding some coupons.

I found enough coupons for you to do another transaction. I KNOW I have more...at least enough to do another, but I can not remember what I did with the coupons...I hope I did not throw them away. Let me know how I can get you the coupons I do have. I can not get to the post office tomorrow as I am swamped, I am hoping to do another Martins run on Thursday. I can hide the coupons there for you.

Alice: The coupons on ebay were about $5.00 plus shipping--which is more than I wanted to pay. :(

Thanks so much Michelle! If you want to use them yourself, I understand. Hiding them for me in the store would be great. I have a couple of wine tags to give you.

yep, when I took a peek on ebay I thought they had some cheaper ones; the bidding must have went up. As soon as word gets out about a good deal, the price will go up on the coupons. I wonder if people realize they are not getting that great a deal if they had to pay a bunch for the coupons! LOL

Hope you found some more!

I'll hide them tomorrow for you. I will try to find the others too. Despite what I give you I still have some left for me to do another. I'll messge you here when I get to work tommorow to let you know where I left them...you see this before the public does, right? Did you check at the
FL or WM in Charles Town? know both WM in M-burg, the FL in Inwood, and month M-burg FL are out of the booklets. I'll try and check Hedgesville today. I can not hardly ever get to Kearneysville.

Yes, I see comments before they're posted. I checked Weis this morning and they didn't have any. I am going to be in Shepherdstown this evening for an appointment. I will check Food Lion in Shepherdstown and Kearneysville on my way home tonight. Stay tuned for the outcome! :)

Sara said...

No luck in Shepherdstown or Kearneysville. :( I found tear pads and blinkies, but no Cinco de Mayo booklets. I have extra of the Kraft tear pad coupons. Just let me know if you need some and I'll be happy to share.
