This week's Super Saver is Arlene Hecht of Houston, who writes:
"I was so excited about a recent purchase that I just had to write. I had a coupon that said if I purchased two Kraft Cheese products plus one Pace Picante Sauce, I would receive a bag of tostada chips free (up to $1.50 in value). I also had a coupon for 55 cents off Velveeta cheese, plus the large 2-pound Velveeta was on sale for $3.99 or $1 off. Also, the Tostito Baked chips were on sale for $3.19, buy-one-get-one-free. The end result was that I got one free bag of Tostitos and one at $1.69, and the Velveeta for $3.44. The snacks taste better when you pay less."
