Meijer - Ortega

Since I may have a few new readers for this blog, I thought I'd go ahead and repeat the Ortega taco deal at Meijer. This week, 5/11 thru 5/17, all Ortega products are half off. So salsas are 1.18, taco seasonings are .34 and taco shells (12pack) are .84. If you use the .75 off 2 coupon from the 4/20 smartsource insert, which will double to $1.00 off 2, you can get some really good deals.

A few things to keep in mind when shopping at Meijer:
1: They will only double two identical coupons per order, so split up your orders if using more than 2 coupons for a particular item.
2: Their systems are set up to not allow overage with coupon use. For instance if something is on sale for .75 and you have a dollar off coupon, the register will automatically only take .75 off. So the item will be free, but no overage. So in this deal, be sure not to use the coupon just on two seasoning mixes or you'll only get .68 off instead of say you do a box of shells and a seasoning mix and then you'll get the full dollar off. Make sense? I hope so

Here's some ideas:
Buy 1 seasoning mix @ .34 and 1 box of shells @ .84 total = 1.18
use one .75 off 2 coupon (double to 1.00 off)
pay .18

Or:
Buy 1 seasoning mix @ .34 and 1 salsa @ 1.18 total = 1.52
use one .75 off 2 coupon (double to 1.00 off)
pay .52

You can certainly mix and match however you like, these are just examples. There are also many other products included in the sale including taco dinner kits and taco sauces.
