Two dollars is as good as it gets for cream cheese here in Hawaii but in the grocery ad there was also a coupon for $3 off 3 Kraft cheeses. It had deli and shredded cheese on the picture so I wasn't sure if it would be honored for cream cheese. I thought it was a long shot but wouldn't hurt to ask. The cashier didn't think it would work either but she tried anyways and we were both shocked to find that it did! Hurray! That meant that I got 3 packages of cream cheese for $3 or $1 a pack.
One dollar for a package of cream cheese is a good deal for cream cheese on the mainland but then at the end of my transaction I got something more. The catalina machine--you know, the one that gives you the coupons and ads with your receipt--spit out a $2 off my next purchase coupon. The coupon was from Kraft! That means that Kraft just gave me another $2 off my purchase of 3 Cream Cheeses for a grand total of $1.
That's a screaming deal anywhere!
