Catalina didn’t print? This is what you do.

September 30, 2009

What to do when your Catalina does not print…

There is nothing more frustrating than doing a deal and your Catalina does not print. When this happens you have a few things that you can do.

When a Catalina does not print, ask the cashier… or head over to Customer Service. Get a Manager if you need to. Don’t be shy about it… Catalina’s can be really high value after all!

~ I always double check with an add if possible that I was supposed to get one.

If they don’t know or are less than helpful make a choice to either return the order completely (get your coupons back) or you can contact Catalina directly.

Catalina can be reached at 888-826-8766 and press 3. (Write this number in your phone book, trust me you’ll need it one day.)

They can look up the transaction by receipt and clubcard number.

I have found the folks at Catalina to be really helpful, last time I had a problem the store was offline and they mailed me my Catalinas.

Thank you Louise for the Catalina info!

~ What is a Catalina?
Catalina Category Marketing (CCM) rewards purchases of promoted products with “catalinas”, also known as “check-out coupons”. These offer incentives good on your next shopping trip to that retailer. There is usually a 4-week window on any given program/incentive promotion.

~ Are catalinas manufacturer’s coupons or store coupons?
Generally, they are manufacturer’s coupons, although occasionally one will state that it is a Store Coupon. The manufacturer’s coupon catalinas are not able to be combined with other manufacturer’s coupons.

In other words, if you have a catalina for $1.00/2 product X and also an insert coupon for $1.00/2, you would need to purchase 4 of the product in order to use both coupons.


Randalls/Safeway Kleenex deal, free kleenex

September 30, 2009


Randalls/Safeway is running a nice Catalina deal right now through Saturday, Oct 3. Buy 3 boxes of Kleenex, Get a Catalina for $3 off your next order.

The boxes look like the one pictured above: they are rectangular and have a flowered print. The box above says 120ct but the one I found that qualified actually had 110 2-ply tissues per box. Buy 3 boxes. Pay $2.97 and get a $3 Catalina for your next transaction. (Thanks Thrifty Mom!)

If you can hit up your store tomorrow (9/30) you can use the $.50/3 coupon in the SS 8/2. You will have to go tomorrow because the coupon expires 9/30. Plus, this should double at most stores.

If you don’t have that coupon, look for $.55/3 blinkies. These were in the Kleenex aisle at my Randalls tonight.

Here’s a breakdown of the deal:

Kleenex Tissue Boxes – $.99 each
-Use $.50/3 Kleenex coupon (SS 8/2)* OR
-Use $.55/3 Kleenex coupon (Blinkie)
-Get $3 OYNO Catalina WYB 3
Final Price = 3 Boxes FREE (+ up to $1 possible overage)
*Expires Wednesday 9/30.

You will have to pay out of pocket on the first transaction but on your next transaction, you can roll the Catalina. Just make sure you have something to offset the $.03 overage.
