Fred Meyer - Great Battery Deal

Wow! Karrie, over at Fistful of Coupons, posted an AWESOME deal on Duracell batteries yesterday. Fred Meyer has an coupon in their Sunday ad, changing the price of their 4-pk AA and AAA, 2-pk C and D and 1-pk of 9V Duracell batteries to $1.99. In addition, we have coupons (Idaho Statesman had 50c coupons, though Karrie says there are $1 and 75c coupons out there) from 11/1 P&G coupon section. To sweeten the deal, Freddies has a catalina available. Buy $10 get $2 catalina, Buy $20 get $5 catalina.

Karrie says buy 6 at $3.99 each, give the cashier this weeks in-ad coupon (which will deduct $12) and then give 6 manufacturers coupons. If you have 6 50c coupons, your out of pocket before tax will be $8.94 and you will receive a $5 catalina. There is no limit stated on the Fred Meyer coupon, and it does say "May be used with Bonus Coupon". I don't know if that means that the Rewards Certificates (that always come with in-store coupons) are coming this week, or what that statement actually means.

I would think this catalina would roll, and if so, your next batch would be cheaper (without any coupons, just using the $5 catalina 6 would be $6.94 and you should get another $5 catalina! Since I just heard about this, I can't confirm that the catalina will roll though. This would be a great time to stock up for your holiday toy battery needs! Since the ad is good thru Saturday, you could go on e-bay and order some of the $1 coupons.

Thanks to Karrie for the great info!

UPDATE: I just ran to the FM on Franklin in Boise. They had plenty of the in-ad coupons, hanging on the battery display. Also, I figured out what the Bonus Coupon is, I think. There is a 1 page insert in the Fred Meyer ad - Enjoy 4 Days of Extra Savings. One of the 4-day bonus coupons is "Take an extra 10% off" Includes housewares, Home Decor, Furniture, Toys, Storage, Bedding, Bath, School & Office Supplies, Tools, Hardware, Automotive, Home Improvement, Sporting Goods and Luggage. I'm pretty sure batteries fall into one of those categories!
