I was looking at my Albertsons accounts and I was kinda in shock when I saw a store digital coupon for the Lean Cuisine Origins Entrees for $3.49. each. Correct me, if I’m wrong, but isn’t the $3.49 price their everyday price? I seem to recall Vons will normally have the Lean Cuisines on sale 4/$10 or 5/$10.
What a great win for Kroger and it’s affiliates to be able to sell the Lean Cuisine frozen meals, in January, from $1.67 to $1.88 each which also happened to coincide with a $7/7 Ibotta rebate (that have reset numerous times).
Obviously, Albertsons was unable to come to an agreement with the folks at Lean Cuisine (which is part of the Nestle Company) and that’s how Albertsons and it’s affiliate stores end up selling Lean Cuisine and Stouffer’s Fit Kitchen for $3.49.
During the government shutdown, I hope that those that are not receiving a paycheck, went into a Kroger store to get the Lean Cuisine meals on the very cheap!
