Unless otherwise stated, all Catalina offers are limited to one per transaction. Read more about what to do if your Catalina coupon doesn’t print as expected.

Select Catalina promotions are listed at Coupon Network and/or on the Meijer Mealbox website under the “Custom Coupons” tab. Mealbox listings do not always contain all of the details (usually just the first tier of purchase requirements). Please comment if you have additional information.

COLOR-CODED DEALS for your convenience – final prices are listed with

  • FREE items in red
  • STOCK UP prices in green
  • AVERAGE savings in black (purchase these items only if needed)


View Meijer’s official coupon policy online (print it if needed for reference!).

  • Metro Detroit Meijer stores will double manufacturer coupons up to $0.50, but no more than 2 identical coupons per transaction. Additional identical coupons and any store coupons will be redeemed at face value. You may want to call your location before shopping to verify. For best savings on multiple items with coupons that will double, divide your order into multiple transactions or shopping trips.
  • When a particular advertised sale item is out of stock, be sure to ask your cashier or a customer service assistant for a raincheck.


You may want to print a copy of the Meijer Mealbox store policy and keep it with your shopping list to show your cashier (in case 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.


  • mPerks coupons are considered Meijer coupons, along with Mealbox coupons. One Meijer coupon and one manufacturer coupon for the same item will be accepted.
  • These coupons are for one-time use only.
  • mPerks coupons will NOT double at the register. They are specific to your account and cannot be shared.
  • New mPerks coupons are added each week and refreshed on Mondays. You may want to check available mPerks savings regularly and add them to your account, as they can become unavailable at any time.
  • Read the mPerks FAQ for more information.

      Mj says

      Rebecca, I didn’t try to roll the Purina check out coupon because it states on it ‘…additional coupon will not print when this coupon is redeemed in the same transaction.’ Maybe this wording is always on the check out coupons and sometimes rolls..I don’t know. I didn’t want to risk it and have the hassle of going to the service desk to return/repurchase.

        I got fortunate (blessing in disguise!), as my $10 catalina didn’t print and Customer Services wrote me a $10 “raincheck”. Since it is not the official catalina, I can use it to roll this deal once!

        At first I was super annoyed it didn’t print, but when I got this realization, I was thankful and humbled. My attitude and perspective needs constant correction!

    Julie says

    The mperks pillsbury pie crust coupon cannot be combined with a manufactured coupon can it because it is a manufactured coupon, not a meijer coupon? Do the manufactered coupon mperks double?

    • 14

      Kristi says

      The Meijer I shop at allows you to combine manufacturer’s coupons with Meijer coupons for the same item but it doesn’t double any of the Mperks coupons.

    • 15

      Summer says

      I bought 4 pie crusts, using (2) newspaper insert coupons and the mperks took off .50 also (FYI did not double) – didn’t remember it was there so wasn’t expecting it. That said, I don’t like double dipping if I’m not supposed to, but I’m not sure how to get around it. I’ve tried deleting a coupon from mperks before (spaghetti-o’s) and got a pop-up stating that particular coupon could not be deleted so i haven’t tried it since. Nor do I want to mess with separate transactions simply because I know there is an mperks coupon i don’t want to be used.

        • 17

          Linda says

          The Pilsbury MPerks are manufacturer coupons. It says that when you clip them. I have noticed that the new manufacturer coupons on the MPerks site are all in red and the Meijer coupons are in black.

    I can’t find the Gorton’s Fish Sticks coupon in either of my 9-11 SS’s! Am I blind or does anyone else having trouble? Thanks!!

    • 19

      Leslie K. says

      Mary Ellen, I found them in the SS with the Proactiv bottles on the front. Be careful, because there were two SS that week. I also noticed that the copy I got from my mom, (Oakland Press, I believe), with a Dish ad on the front, did not include it. Hope you can find it!

    I’d love to trade for some purina coupons too if anyone has some.
    I have enfamil Qs and similac checks 😀

  4. 23

    Laura says

    How many like coupons can you use in one transaction because I thought it was four? Or does it depend on your own store? Wanted to do the purina deal but that is 7 like coupons in one transaction. Thanks

      The like limit coupon differs from store to store. Here in my area, you can use as many as you like. I have heard other stores only allow four. Your best bet is to call around to the stores near you and find out.

      Tonya says

      Some stores only limit if they are doubling. Like you can use unlimited but they will only double 2.

    Can you combine the pillsbury mperks with those coupons for a better deal with the milk scenario?

    • 27

      JR says

      None of my mperks worked for the pillsbury cresecent rolls or cinnamon rolls I recently bought. When I went back and looked at the mperks it stated “CONSUMER: No other coupon may be used with this coupon.”

    For some reason the Al Fresco link is not working. It is telling me that I have printed the number of times allowed and I haven’t even printed it.

    The slow cooker liner coupon didn’t show up. Is Reynolds not offering it right now, or is there a different link? Thanks! I love buying these when I can get them that cheap.

    I have (5) of the Purina One beyond dog food coupons $4/1. I don’t have a dog. I have 2 cats. I would be willing to trade these for the $2 off Purina one cat food coupons from 10/16 SS. Email me at Thanks!

    If you have a .50 off Meijer soda on Mperks it makes two of them for .27 each for today only….at least that’s what mine said. Also Mperks had .50 off two pillsbury pie crust and .50 off 2 pillsbury cookie dough. It would add to the manufactures coupons already listed.

  11. 44


    I was at Krogers today and they had .55 international delight blinkies so was able to get extra of those at Meijers today. Awhile back I got .50 Kraft cheese slice blinkies and have been holding onto those for a deal. Finally I was able to use 10 of them on sliced cheese at Meijers. They expire on the 31st. Hope someone else was able to get in on the deal too.

    My family really likes the Pilgrim’s Pride Southern Style all white meat chicken tenders, and the $3.99 sale price is a great one (I think they are normally $7.99?!?!), but to make it even greater go to their website and link throught the top of the page to a $1 coupon! $2.99 all white meat chicken strips! Yay!

    • 46

      Beth Ann says

      We love those Pilgrim’s Pride chicken strips too, but I’m pretty sure the ones on sale are un-cooked chicken and the coupon that prints is for “fully cooked”. :-(

      • 47

        Kristina C says

        Nope. The chicken strips are fully cooked and then frozen! In other states Pilgrim also sells fresh, raw chicken breasts but I haven’t seen them in Michigan. I have been using these coupons for about a year. The website rotates between coupons for their fresh/refrigerated chicken and their fully cooked frozen. Works on the southern style and their blazing buffalo. 😀

      Did anyone notice a $2.00 Catalina wyb10 Progresso soups? There was a sign at my store on Sunday. The Catalina did not print for me, but the cashier wrote me a sore coupon for $2.00. Was this expired? Maybe that is why it didn’t print.

  13. 53

    Brittney says

    Just want to let everyone know that in the fine print of the ad for the Purina $10 off custom coupon with $40 purchase it says “Additional coupon will NOT print when the coupon is redeemed in the same transaction. Offer good 10/30-11/9/11” I almost did this before I saw it. Didn’t want anyone else to miss out :)

    Tonya says

    Just wondering… Cover Girl stuff is P&G right? Wouldn’t it be possible to spend $35 in face products, use the $8/2 coupons, AND get the $10 P&G Mastercard? If you play your cards right, you could get a ton of free makeup, not just the free blush that’s $3.99.

    • 57


      WOo Hooo! The $10 rebate is on $50 in purchases of participating P&G beauty products — Cover Girl included! I’ve purchased $50 worth (using my $8 cpns of course) over the past few weeks AND saved all my receipts. I’m mailing out my rebate form today! Tons of FREE makeup and a FREE $10 debit card AND P&G will donate $10 to the Nat’l Breast Cancer Foundation for my participation. Wow! Awesome deal!!

      • 58

        mary says

        where is the P&G rebate form located? I too bought a ton of covergirl lately and saved all receipts! TIA:)

          • 61

            Courtney says

            Hey Everyone,

            When I “bought” my free Cover Girl blush last week a rebate form printed from the CAT machine. You actually only had to spend $35 to qualify for the $10 Mastercard. Sorry girls, but the form states “no copies” of the form allowed, and all products have to be on one receipt. Maybe Beth Ann is referring to a different deal and she can fill you all in on it.

    I have been couponing for about 6 months and this website has been incredibly helpful!
    I recently moved from Flint to East Lansing area and I’m having a difficult time figuring out which paper to buy here. The Detroit free press doesn’t seem to have coupons ever and the Lansing State Journal is hit and miss. Any suggestions from area couponers?

    • 63

      Dan says

      I feel your pain. It seems like the Detroit Free Press hasn’t had any coupon inserts in them ever since the Lansing State Journal raised their prices up to $1.75 a few months back. I subscribed to LSJ using a promo code, so we only pay $1 a week for half a year. I’ve been told if you can’t convince them to lower your rate when your promotion is up, they’ll give you a call in a month or two and ask what they can do to get your business back. We’ll often pick up an extra paper or two from a local store if the coupons are good. I like to get them from Rite Aid since we get 20% off the papers, and I can use our +UP rewards to pay for them.

      If you find a place to get the Detroit Free Press with coupons, let me know. I’d subscribe to the DFP, but they charge like 3.50 a week, and there is a good chance you wont get coupons. I’ve considered subscribing to an insert mailing company, but I don’t know if I want enough inserts to make it financially feasible.

    • 64

      Deanna says

      I’m very disappointed in the Free Press too. Someone on this list suggested the Grand Rapids Press a couple of months ago. It doesn’t have the same tier of coupons as the Free Press, but it’s a better tier than the Journal. They can by hard to find though.

      • 65

        Dan says

        I’ve never seen the Grand Rapids paper in Lansing. Maybe I’m not looking at the right places. I’d pay twice as much for the DFP as the LSJ under most circumstances. My wife is probably getting sick of me grumbling when I look through old circulars and can’t find coupons. It’s amazing to me when we have gotten a DFP with coupons at how much more is in it. And even the coupons that are in both often don’t match up. For instance, the LSJ will have a $1 off 2 and the DFP will have $0.50 off 1. Seems similar, but when Meijers doubles the coupon, you get twice the savings with the DFP. That kind of thing is very common.

        • 66

          Jocie says

          Hey, I just wanted to say that I found that sometimes the DFP does not have the same coupons that sometimes the Oakland FP, or Livoina FP might have. So when I go to CVS i normally get a couple of DFP and one of the Oakland and Livonia.

          • 67

            Marianne says

            I agree the DFP & Oakland do not have the same q’s all the time, I end up buying 1 DFP and 1 Oakland just to get certain inserts. DFP did not P&G, Oakland did and 2 weeks prior to that DFP did not have the Smart Source. What a pain it has become lately. I am finding I am printing most of the ones I am using and hardly cutting any from the inserts.

    B1G1 Purina Friskies Cat Food 3.15 lbs — There is a .50 cents coupon for this in the past weekends RP. Don’t know how much it is though. =D

    • 70

      Amy says

      Just to update: they are 3.79 at my store so with the .50 cent off and doubled. I used 3 coupons and bought 6 bags of the cat food. So I paid about 1.40 per bag. I got a lot of the other stuff too. So probably less after the $10 off your next purchase coupon.

    The Howell Meijer has the frozen sara lee desserts 50% off, not B1G1. For instance, I got a New York Style Cheesecake yesterday for $1.50 because it is $4.99 regular price. It’s 50% off then I used my $1 off sara lee frozen dessert coupon….great deal to stock up on for the holidays.

      • 80

        Jeanie says

        except 50% off is SOOOO much better since you can use a coupon for each item you get where as you could only use half as many for the b1g1’s. For example if you were to get and they were the b1g1 you could only use 1 coupon but if they are 50%off you can use 2 coupons.

    I need just (2) more of the Purina 4.00/1 coupons to get the deal. Does anyone have any that they would be interested in trading for?? Would really appreciate it! Thanks!

  25. 97


    There is a .50/1 Meijer Brand 2 liter of pop on Mperks!!! + with the .77 a piece sale,makes for a cheap 2 liter!!! :) Also I seen today they had TONS of frankenberry cereal on clearance for $1.49 (it was halloween packaging) I’m not sure of what coupons are out there for this but I thought it was cheap anyways! :)

    Ashley says

    I was looking through the comments and didn’t see an answer to a question I had(but if I am asking and its already been answered sorry :( ) was wondering about the pillsbury pie crust and cookie dough mperk coupon, someone said that you can’t use the mperk and the manufactorer coupon together….is that right? Has anyone tried it? I’m making my list and won’t buy these unless I can use both coupons :)

    The K cups are 10% off this week making 12 pk $5.84. There was a $2 off millstone coffee kcup coupon in the 10/23 RP making each K cup .32 cents each!
    Also, the On the border tortilla chips are on price drop 2/$5 there is a .55 cent coupon here Which will double, making for 1.50 per bag. Thats cheaper than the Meijer brand tortilla chips this week!

  32. 107

    Cathy says

    Jolyn,do you think that $1.50 will soon be the new stock up price for cereal or do you think it will ever go back down to $1.00 again. I’m just curious. I hate to use all my coupons this week on the sale if there was a chance of the price going lower.

    • 108

      Courtney says

      Good question. I feel the same way. I definitely need to add some variety to our stock of cereal, but $1.50 a box makes me cringe…

    • 109

      Rachel says

      Next week the bigger boxes of Lucky Charms are on sale for the same price as this week. If you didn’t already use your $.50 Lucky Charms coupons, hang on to them for a better deal next week.

      Anymore, I’m considering $1.50 a box for ‘decent’ cereal a good price. The days of $.50 – $1.00 cereal are gone, I’m afraid…. :(

        Thanks for the tip to hold on to lucky charms coupons for next week, just printed the coupons, was planning to use today, will wait til tomorrow. thanks!
