I originally told you about this last week, but I’m reminding you! Today is the last day. See my update at the very bottom to score cheap lunch meat!
After my awesome trip to Albertsons (90% savings) I headed to Safeway to pick up some other great deals. I ended up spending $25.40 out of pocket (71% savings) PLUS I walked out the door with a $10 catalina off my next purchase! Not too shabby if you ask me.
The highlight of the trip was the “FREE” hot dogs after catalina. . . and it’s a little complicated, so let me walk you through it.
Oscar Mayer hot dogs are on sale for $1.99
Check your Safeway Just For U account, you should have a coupon for $1 off Oscar Mayer Meat Franks. “Add” it to your Safeway card. It says one-time use, but this means one transaction. This e-coupon was advertised in the store – so it SHOULD be on everyone’s account.
Buy 10 packages of Oscar Mayer franks 16 oz (I bought a couple varieties) at $1.99 each, in ONE transaction. **Make sure they are 16 oz packages.**
At checkout, the $1 Safeway e-coupon will come off EACH one, making them each $0.99!
Pay $9.91 out of pocket
Get a $10 catalina from Kraft off your next purchase! Pretty sweet, huh?
You can only do this once. The coupon is a one-time coupon, so it’s only going to come off the first time you purchase the franks. Please know that there may not be enough hot dogs at your store for everyone to do this deal. The e-coupon and sale only lasts until 9/4 – so only two days left, so a raincheck won’t benefit you. I’m only telling you this to manage your expectations – I’m not sure how many people will run out and do the deal – have other deals in mind, so you don’t waste a trip.
I hear you can take this catalina and use it to buy other Kraft products, to generate another $10 catalina, this is called rolling a catalina. I have not tried it with this catalina yet.
As a side note – you might be wondering what I’m going to do with 10 packs of hot dogs. Well my son and daughter eat them, so they will go in the freezer. We were completely out, so this is our stock up. We will also be sharing with some friends who can use them.

UPDATE 9/4 – I went last night and also got Oscar Mayer lunch meat. After the catalina it came to only $1.88 each, which was good enough for me to stock up for back-to-school.
These are currently $3.99 at Safeway. Some of you have a Safeway Just For U price for under $3, I didn’t. EVERYONE should have a $1.11 e-coupon for Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh lunch meat. It’s limited to a one-time use, but WILL apply to all the lunch meats you buy.
Here’s how I made it work
Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh lunch meat – $3.99 each x 10 = $39.99
Safeway Just For U e-coupon for $1.11 off each = – $11.10
Final price = $28.89 out of pocket
Get $10 Kraft catalina back!
It’s like paying $18.89 for all 10 lunch meats or $1.89 each
If you have the Just for U personalized pricing your deal is even better!
