*DOUBLE COUPONS - This deal requires a coupon to DOUBLE at Meijer. Note that most Macomb-area Meijer stores will double only 2 identical coupons (up to $0.50) per transaction. See notes below.

**MEIJER MEALBOX STORE COUPONS - Meijer store policy, as posted here on the
Mealbox Website. You may want to print a copy of this and keep it with your shopping list to show your cashier (if they aren't familiar with corporate policy):

1.) Mealbox coupons may be used in addition to Manufacturer coupons.
2.) Mealbox coupons may be used each time a condition is met, which could be multiple times per transaction.
(For example: a coupon for $1.00 off 2 soups can be used multiple times if you have a coupon printed and the number of soups purchased matches, i.e. 2 coupons = 4 soups.)
3.) Mealbox coupons cannot be doubled or tripled at any time.
4.) Stores have the right to limit the quantity of items to normal retail purchases per transaction.
You may NOW use more than one identical Mealbox coupon per transaction, but note that the computer may only deduct one automatically - the rest may require cashier approval, so watch carefully.

Please let me know if you see any other good deals I've forgotten to mention (we could ALL benefit from your contributions)! View the Meijer Ad online here (available on Sunday).

Other Reminders:

  • MOST Macomb Meijer stores will double coupons up to $0.50, but no more than 2 identical coupons per transaction. The new Cass/Groesbeck location may double no more than one (of each identical coupon) per transaction. You may want to call your location before shopping to be sure.
  • You can print 2 copies of each printable coupon per computer. Use your back button and refresh the screen if necessary or return to the original coupon link. You can print as many Mealbox coupons as you'd like.
  • If a particular sale item is out of stock, be sure to ask your cashier or a customer service assistant for a raincheck.

  1. I went shopping this morning and was so bummed this wasn't up :(

  2. I'm sorry it wasn't up sooner. Normally, I get a new ad on Friday, but I got stiffed this week in my paper. That, and the fact that we were out of town for our godson's baptism set things back a bit this week!

  3. Have you been able to use 2 of the same Meijer Mealbox coupons in one shopping trip? You listed the Planter's nut deal w/ 2 Mealbox coupons and I have not been able to use two of the same coupons so far, but it seems that they are changing the policy all the time.

  4. Justmy3,

    Yes! We shopped on Friday and used 2 Mealbox coupons for Fruit 2 O drinks; both were deducted without a problem. I DID watch the register closely to be sure, however, because it's been hit or miss before. Though the cashier never refuses more than one identical Mealbox coupon, the computer used to ignore deducting the second.

    So, give it a try - and watch closely! If all goes according to plan, it should work for you now.

  5. I forgive you! Thanks for what you do! I love this blog!

  6. I just discovered you blog and Love it!
    I can confirm that you can use more than one Mealbox Q per transaction. I do it all the time. coupon says 'one per item'. When I hand the cashier my Qs, I make sure that the mealbox ones are on top. I also check to see that every mealbox Q is scanned.
    I can also verify that the Fraser store only doubles 2 identical Qs. I shop there all the time and whenever I use a 3rd, it gets redeemed at face value.

  7. My Nature Valley coupons say "Do not double or triple" on them. Has that been happening a lot to other people?

  8. Anonymous,
    Usually, Meijer will accept these coupons and the computer will automatically double them WHEN the UPC code begins with a 5. (These coupons are often termed DND-5, short for "do not double"). Other coupons state "do not double" and begin with 9 (DND-9) - they will not double under any circumstances. Try one Nature Valley coupon and see what happens. Worst case scenario, you'll ask the cashier to remove that item from your order - best case, it will automatically double without a problem.

  9. FYI - the VD/16 Mile store price on the Snickers ice cream bars is only $1.93, making them $0.93 after coupon! Same price for the 6-pack full-size bars or the 12-pack 90 calorie bars (half-size).

  10. The VD/16 Mile store also has tearpads in the produce department for FREE produce (up to $1) WYB 2 Kraft dressings. Pair 2 of those with the 4 dressing scenario above to get an even better deal!

  11. My Nature Valley coupons ended up doubling for me!
