Same opportunity at Food Basics $6.99 per box, some have the $4 off coupon.

Freshco has Jane's fish for $4.99 and some boxes have the same $4 off coupon making them $0.99 for 450g.

Nominating this for thread of the year already. In-depth discussion of how to get to the coupon with minimal shame and maximum RFD spirit x)

Lol coupon is inside the box. So you need to buy one at regular price and the ones after is $4 off. I went to Walmart and saw alot of $4 boxes, so I pm NF to get my first coupon box.

Printed inside the box. Most retailers probably won't let u open it and rip up the box without paying for it first lol

If you have no shame, then this is how you do it.

1) Buy a dozen boxes at $6.99 per box. Keep the receipt handy.
2) Take boxes back to your car and cut out all the coupons.
3) Go back in the store and use the coupons to buy another dozen boxes.
4) repeat steps 2+3 as many times as you want.
5) Return your last batch of unopened boxes with the receipt from step 1.

Is it easy to return unopened food at NoFrills?

Don't stores have a rule about throwing out returned refrigerated food as they don't know what status it's been kept in? Taking this advice is like returning all your 1/2 eaten food items for refund. At least nonrefrigerated unopened returns would go to the food bank.

Costco's rule for returned food items is garbage status once it passes the door guy.

I prefer the guy's advice that said price match one at WM then buy one at a time with cut out coupons. Go at a nonbusy time and buy an extra item that you buy anyway.

If I know my NFs in the area, they will have empty shelves now.

Update: I don't see the WM deal to pm at NF now (using flipp). I see IGA has buyone getone free. I wonder what their reg price is? Woooo, maybe IGA has the $4 coupons on top of that. Ooooooo.

How would they do that at IGA? Buy 1 at $8-$4 get one free? So, net $2 each box???

How does a cashier respond to the purchase of a cut out box?

How does store security respond to someone cutting open a product box in store? I wouldn't want to become a photographed and flagged suspicious customer for future visits.

I'm anxiously awaiting a picture of trunk full of chicken fingers & fish sticks like the Nestea few years back. C'mon fellow RFDer's, I'm counting on you!!!

Edit for history...man, can't believe this was 6 years ago!

Immediately thought of the nestea infinity thread when I read this deal.

However, I think the limiting factor here that's different than nestea is not the lack of coupons, but storage.

You can store boatloads of pop in the basement or garage and it'll be fine.
You can't store boadloads of frozen chicken strips/nuggets/burgers - you only have a finite amount of freezer space (unless you're willing to commit and invest as many freezers to store your free strips).

So I don't think this will take off as virally as nestea.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but don't stores throw away refunded/returned food even if unopened for safety/liability reasons? Sure you maybe saving $4 per box but the ones you return go straight to the trash costing the store money, not to mention wasting perfectly good food so you can save a few bucks......... You'd have to be pretty shameless/cheap/selfish/ghetto as hell to do it lol

Edit, didn't notice the post above but Rxmills mentioned costco throws away returned food, pretty sure it is standard policy for most stores, no store is going to risk an incident to try to salvage and resell the returned food, not worth the risk.

So you are saying we should return later in the day and camp out at the dumpster to wait for/pick up the discarded food for consumption to avoid wastage?
