There is a great new catalina deal running in Kroger stores (and Kroger affiliate stores) right now.  This will run through 4/18.

Buy any Betty Crocker Potatoes and get a coupon for your next purchase at that store.

Buy 1, Get 50¢
Buy 2, Get $1.50
Buy 3, Get $3

Betty Crocker Pouches are regularly $1-$1.19 at most stores so this makes 3 FREE with out coupons!

If you have any of the following coupons it makes it a money maker!

-.40/1 Betty Crocker Box or Pouch Potatoes printable (limit reached)
-.25/1 Betty Crocker Potatoes, SS 3/28

-.40/1 Betty Crocker Box or Pouch Potatoes Cellfire eCoupon

Catalina promotions tend to also run at other stores in the same region has anyone spotted this in other grocery chains??

(thanks DealSeekingMom!)

      I clicked on the printable sites but neither one offered the potato coupon. Any ideas where else I could find it?

      • Jesskids

        Try 30101 zip. It had it earlier today :)

    • connieb03

      I clicked on both printable sites but wasn't offered the potato coupon. Any ideas where else I could find this online?

      Kroger had GM coupon books last week on a table. (Don't know what the table was for–there was a young girl sitting there with a book!)

      • Nicole

        Could have been Box Tops for Education, or possibly Eat Better America. I got both of those mailings this week with GM coupons in them. Box Tops had a coupon for $1.00 off 2 boxes of potatoes.

        I believe it was called “March into Savings”. My son found it lying on the floor and picked it up. He handed it to me and said I needed it, “it has coupons in it”. He's a trained coupon-tracker. Just kidding.

        • Jesskids

          That is great! My 4 year old son goes around Publix pulling out all of the coupons for me too :)

    • nicole

      Kroger in Flowood, Ms (Jackson) has the deal. I recieved a printout from register earlier this month. States it's running from 3/22-4/18

      • andreac88

        Does this include boxed potatoes, too. (augratin, scalloped, etc.). Or is it just the pouches? Thanks.

        • Lauren

          I bought 1 boxed & 2 pouches at a Kroger in Raleigh NC last night & didn't get the Catalina, but it may have a machine problem (I didn't see a light & the cashier was already reaching for my groceries)

    • Brooke

      Iam new to netbook can you print coupons from them ? I want get this for my MoM she just want to print coupons & do bill only.

      • sherryw1

        Yes I use my daughter's netbook to print coupons from.

    • courtneydodd

      I got a Catalina at my Food Lion for the Idahoan Instant Potatoes for $1.50 off.

    • HillbillyFrugal

      Kroger also has a Catalina On California Pizza kitchen pizzas through 3/28/10. If you purchase 2 Get $1, purchase 3 get $2,& purchase 4 or more get $3 coupon OYNO. The catalina advertisement that printed didn't specify a size and just says BUY CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN PIZZA DURING PURCHASE DATES……ETC.

    • Niddi

      This did not produce a catalina for me today in S.C. Catalina machine was working.

    • mdawnrose

      also there are peelies on some packages as well@!!!!

    • kristanlynn

      i have (2) $3 dollar off next purchase Kroger catalina's.
      can i use both on one transaction??

      • Niddi

        I've been able to do it before.

    • couponmandy

      I learned a valuable lesson today. I went to get the potatoes and I thought that you would get the catalina deal per 3 that you bought. I only works on three per transaction. I bought 12 hoping to get 4, but only one came out. Oh well, lesson learned.
      Is anyone else having issues with their ecoupons? Mine do not seem to be working.

      • GAmeg

        Me too – for the first time in 6 plus months, Shortcuts did not come off at the register last night. I went on their website, filled out a dispute form, and they immediately added the money on to my Kroger card. Anyhow, that trip I had only spent $24 for $121 of groceries, so I guess I shouldn't be complaining! ( But I had estimated to be under $20- with the $3.80 in missing Shortcuts coupons!)

    • Jessica

      can you keep rolling this deal over. buy 3 BC potatoes, get a $3 coupon print out. then buy 3 more, use the $3 coupon, then get another $3 coupon print out and so on and so on…leaving some on the shelf of course.

    • Sarah D

      Great MM deal – we don't eat these but I have done the deal until I used up all my coupons and will donate to our church food pantry. Yesterday, by doing this deal 2X, I got 7 pouches of potatoes and made $1.55. Used the money towards the Bumblebee tuna pouches and got 20 of those for $4.45 – so it was a really good run

    • carrieholder

      ok like this is in the wrong place but i keep seeing on my kroger receipt flexable spending what does that mean? like this time it was 4 dollars and something and last time like a 1 dollar something what is that all about

      • tinaded

        I have been wondering the same thing. maybe it goes toward those new clinics that they have now. like a discount on dr visit or something

      • Jenn

        I think that this is pointing out the amount of money you spent on items that are FSA eligible, items that can be purchased on a Flexible Spending Account. Our FSA is through my husband's work. Every pay period he has a certain amount deducted, pre-tax, for our FSA. We have a debit card for it and we then use that money for doctor's visits, cough medicine, bandaids, that sort of thing.

    • Lori

      I bought one box of the boxed potatoes yesterday at my store in Grayson Ga, and I didn't get a catalina. I guess it only works on the pouches. Anyone else have this problem?
