  1. 1

    Tonya says

    $1.00 Chef Boyardee Canned Pasta, 14.75-15 oz
    -$0.50/4 Chef Boyardee coupon (from 9-16 SS)
    $0.75 each when you buy 4 with coupon ($0.50 if your store doubles to $1)

    I don’t understand the doubles to $1 part… is there another coupon or something?

    • 2

      Sara says

      Some stores will double that .50 cent coupon making it $1 off. It depends on the store, some double all coupons up to and including $1 (face value of the coupon) while other stores will only double up to certain amounts if they even double at all. You can call ahead and check with them if you don’t know your stores policy.

      • 3

        Tonya says

        I get that, what I’m saying is the coupon is not for $1, so I don’t know how a $0.50 coupon could make the end price $0.50/each.

    • 4

      VICKIE says

      Took me a minute to get what you are saying… the original coupon amount is .50 so it should double whether the store doubles to 1.00 or not… maybe the coupon is supposed to be worth 1.00 to start with?

    • 7

      Stacey says

      They are $0.75, making them $0.38 each with the sale.

      Also FYI – the Green Giant sale is only on the boxed frozen veggie varieties; the Seasoned Steamers are NOT included.

  2. 8

    Yuna says

    They also have Febreeze Air Effects on sale so my final cost was $0.50 each after doubling. The coupon can be found from the 9-30 paper.
