Walgreens: FREE Velveeta Cups- Starts 8/14!


Mary over at Couponers Unite emailed about this great deal at Walgreens starting tomorrow, 8/14 and running through 9/7:

Buy 2 or more Velveeta Shells and Cheese--receive a $1 Register Reward to use like cash on your next purchase. These will also be on sale 3/$3!

Deal Scenario:
Buy 4 Velveeta Shells & Cheese Cups $4
Use 2 buy one get one free coupons from the 8/9SS
Plus, use $1/4 Walgreens Back-2-School coupon
Pay $1
Get back a $1RR
Final cost 4 cups for FREE!

On another note, have any of you tried these? I purchased these previously and thought they would come in handy as quick lunches for my kiddos. Well, they may be quick... however, my kiddos are not very picky when it comes to Mac & Cheez, BUT they did not like these cups at all!

I'm not trying to tell you not to buy these cups because hey, they're FREE! I just like hearing honest reviews about products, so that's why I wanted to hear your thoughts too!

My grandchildren loved them and they are perfect for a quick easy lunch when we are camping.

my kids did not like them either and would not finish eating it. They eat generic mac and cheese from a box, but did not like these cups. I am donating the other ones I got for free to a food bank. We tried the kraft ones not Velveeta, so maybe the velveeta ones taste better?

My kids loved them. They prefer the Velveeta ones, but would eat either. And my oldest son (8yrs) is SUPER picky and still loves them. Im stocking up this time!

Kristina said...

My back to school coupons say Manufacturer coupon on the back. How can we use two manufacturer coupons on the same item? I love you blog by the way, thsnks for sll the hard work you put into it.

These are good if you tweek them. I under-microwave them (3 1/2 is way to long and makes them mooshy) and then added spices and tomatoes. I don't have kids (hence the tomatoes and spices) but these are nice for a quick snack when your running out of time.

We didn't like the Velveeta ones, the rest are fine.

i have always liked the velveeta mac and cheese and the cups are a good fix if i need it, however it doesnt taste as good as the big box. the broc one is awesome though.

Victoria said...

I guess you either really love them or really hate them, lol.

I think they're pretty good and my 18-month old prefers them to the Kraft Mac & Cheese cups.

My kiddos didn't like the Velveeta cups either, got them free @ Safeway a while back. They prefer the Kraft easy mac cups.

Kristine said...

My kid loves the Kraft mac & cheese cups, but we haven't tried the Velveeta ones. I think now that they are FREE, is a perfect time to try them. If she doesn't like them, we can donate them. Thanks for all of your money-saving tips!

I'm thinking you either love them or hate them! I liked them and so did my daughter! (and she is very picky)

CJ said...

I love the Velveeta cups. I like that you can make one serving at a time, instead of having to make a whole box and having to eat it several times a week.

My kids are super picky and only eat shapes normally but they loved these. I thought they were okay but I have bought them for travel so I can't wait for the deal!

mistisdesk said...

we didnt like them either...and we all love macncheese...something was just not quite right about them...

and Kristina-I believe these are store coupons-they start out with a 0 and that usually means store...

Frugal Farnsies said...

im not a kraft mac n cheese eater, but i do like the velveeta and my husband prefers kraft...there IS a difference!

Mander said...

My daughter loves both Kraft and Velveeta cups. I like that Kraft has a bigger variety. My daughter loves the Velveeta cups that have the broccoli. This would be a great deal if we had a Walgreens close. I have a ton of these coupons to use up before the end of the month.

heather said...

I prefer the Easy Mac cups. There was just something about the Velveeta ones - almost like the cheese sauce was gummy or something.

But, to be honest, my 3 year old daughter doesn't complain if I give her the Velveeta or the Easy Mac - she likes them both.

Don't like the Velveeta cups ... LOVE the regular Kraft Mac & Cheese cups tho.

Anonymous said...

didn't like them either

Abby C said...

My kids like both Kraft and Velveeta, but sometimes they seem like they need a little 'spicing up', so I put either barely a dash of garlic powder or seasoning salt. Not too much though, since they probably have a lot of sodium to begin with.... Can't wait to stock up! Thanks for all of your hard work btw....

Maureen said...

My daughter likes the velveeta and easy mac cups - and it's so easy to make for just one! We did have some trouble cooking the easy mac cups in my mom's older microwave.

As always - Thanks for all of the great deals!

Mary said...

My kids actually like these and the Easy Mac cups, but the shells are very mushy and looked gross to me, but they ate them! I think I ate so much Mac and Cheese growing up that now it just kinda grosses me out!

Anonymous said...

My boys did not like these either. They prefer the original mac and cheese cups.

Heidi said...

My son who just turned 3 not too long ago loves these. He likes the kraft easy mac too, but now that he has tried these he tells me " no, i want the shells" when i try to give him the regular easy mac. They look yummy to me, but I haven't actually tried them yet.

Sandra said...

I tried one of the Velveeta cups last night for the first time. I added a little frozen corn and cooked it for 3 minutes. Since I was cooking up a big batch of seasoned ground beef to freeze, I added a little of it when I was done. A little salsa, and Cheeseburger Macaroni for one!

Baker Tribe said...

My DH and I didn't like them either. They were kind of "mushy" ...not sure how else to describe them!

Denise said...

My kids didn't like these either. I have tried to use just half the cheese packet and they eat it better that way. It seens too saucy/cheesy.

Can you use two manufacturer's coupons?

I actually really, really like the Velveeta cups! They are good for a quick lunch or snack.

My kids love these but after the microwave I pour some chopped ham over it and add extra yummines

Ashlie said...

My 18 month old loves these... he will eat a whole cup for lunch and they are the perfect thing to send to the babysitters house! :)

THIS WILL NOT WORK...THE WALGREENS B2S COUPONS ARE MFG COUPONS REDEEMABLE ONLY AT WALGREENS, SO YOU CAN USE 2 BOGO BUT NOT THE 1/4 COUPON. STILL .25 EACH IS NOT BAD!

Melissa said...

We got them bc of coupons and my kids love them. They are very easy to fix and serve for a quick meal or snack for them. And hey if I can get 4 for free! Going to do it!

Betsy said...

My husband and I really like these for a quick snack. I prefer the Velveeta over the Kraft - it tastes nice and creamy and fills me up pretty well.

Together We Save said...

My kids did not like either. I have 3 sitting in the cabinet now.

Dani said...

My kids love them, especially with taco seasoning mixed in.

Anonymous said...

I know how different kids like different foods. My kids are very picky and they love these.

Mitzi said...

My kids LOVE Easy Mac by Kraft but will NOT eat these Velveeta cups at all. Go figure.

DanielleCorrelle said...

My kids like the Kraft (sometimes) but NOT the Velveeta.

Amy said...

My kids really like the velveeta shells and cheese cups, but will not eat the regular Kraft mac and cheese cups. The only boxed mac and cheese they like is with spirals...I think for them it depends on the noodle!

CJ said...

Is my math right on this? If they are 3/$3 then they are $1 each. Buy 2 for $2, use BOGO coupon to get $1 off and get $1RR back, making 2 free. The $1/4 coupon isnt need and you still get 2 free.

Cathi said...

Well the Kraft Easy Mac Cups are better...but my kid isn't too fussy about these. I do NOT like the cheese and broc. one at all.

Anonymous said...

My daughter and I didn't like the cups either. We love the plain old kraft mac and cheese from a box better!!! (And this is cheaper than the cups, if they're not on sale).

Amy said...

My kids LOVE these.

Alli said...

My son doesn't like them. He keeps asking me to buy them for him, but as soon as I make them he won't eat it! Ah, 3 year olds...
I'll pick some of these up (free is good!), but I'll have the shells and cheese in a box handy too.

deerie65775 said...

Bummer... I didn't get RR for these..
I cannot find where we are to get them..

Oh well, $1 for 4 is a good price and my family likes these!! Hubby took 2 on a campout this eveing -- luckily (ok, so they have a microwave in the kitchen.. still! hehe)

All 3 of my boys loved them, from the 12 year old to the 10 month old!
