Great Deal on Old El Paso and Meat at Kroger!

EDIT: It seems that the Old El Paso printables are no longer available. But if you were able to print them, here's the deal!

Through 10/4/09, Kroger is running the following promotion:

Purchase any 3 Old El Paso taco shells, dinner kits, seasoning, refried beans, or heat & serve side dishes and receive $1 off your next purchase of beef or chicken.
Purchase any 6 of the above products and receive $3 off your next purchase of beef or chicken.

There are printable coupons for $.60 off any 2 Old El Paso products. Don't forget that if you hit the back button on your browser, you can often print one more coupon per computer!

The cheapest way to do this deal would be to buy seasonings, which were $.99 last time I checked.

Buy 6 seasonings @ $.99 = $5.94
Use 3 $.60/2 coupons = (-$1.80)
Pay $4.14, get back a coupon for $3 off beef or chicken. Note that there are no size restrictions on the meat coupon, which means if you find a package that costs right around $3, you won't pay much extra for it. So, for a total of about $4.14, you get 6 seasoning packets and $3 worth of meat.

Meat is one of the hardest things to get a good deal on, so if you'll be buying it anyway, this is a good way to do it!

Note: If you've never done these kinds of deals at Kroger before, you should be aware that the coupon will print out of a small machine next to the register. It's called the Catalina machine, after the company that makes it. If your coupon doesn't print for some reason, you can call the Catalina company at 1-888-8coupon.


  1. Hi Melissa,

    I noticed the actual catalina has no restriction and may be used on anything, or meat if you want.


  2. I rec'd recipes from Betty Crocker today via
    e-mail and it had a link to coupons on it that still had OEP coupons(.60 off 2).
