A new Kraft Catalina deal started yesterday in Kroger, Shop Rite, Harris Teeter and possibly other stores.  So if you thought it didn’t apply since there is not a Kroger nearby… this applies probably to a store in your area.  If you find it working at any other stores let us know!

    • If your CAT does not print on your receipt…try this:

      The email address is

      Send them an email with
      -Store name and address
      -time you were there
      -what you bought
      -your name and address

      I also like to include that line right below “coupons Tendered” that has the date, time, store number, aisle number, cashier number and transaction number. Looks like this
      3/24/10 9:34 AM 0121 33 0008 23

      Or you can call (24 hours After your purchase)
      1-888-8coupon, option 3

      I’ve used this for a CAT that I didn’t receive at Bi-Lo for the Kraft Salad Dressings a few weeks back, and I received the CAT within the week.

    • Mrsjlb3

      I went to Kroger in lebanon, tn last night and bought 5 P cream cheese and it did not print! FYI! :)

    • Morgan

      If anyone has this work at Bi-Lo, please let us know!

      • April

        I'm wondering the same thing!

      • Cindyrella

        Yes, it should! Last week they gave me a catalina printout of it coming up! Same dates and everything.

        • Morgan

          THANK YOU!

        • Lrae17

          Oh great! I was wondering that too!

        • Cathy

          Yes, I received the same catalina ad at Bi-lo too.

    • Rayisa

      I went to Kroger in Acworth, GA and bought 5 cream cheeses twice and both times it printed $5 Catalina.

    • Slumberpartiesbykatherine

      worked at Kroger in Kingsport TN ..and they have most of the kraft on sale for 99 cents when you buy 10

    • Ginnywade

      If a purchased ten would i get two $5.00 off next purchase. or do i need to do two separate orders to get both. Does anyone know.

      • melissa

        2 seperate transactions.

        • Ginnywade


    • Gofxj4

      If this works at Winn Dixie,you would get 5 Kraft 8 oz. chunk cheeses for free, as they are .99 through today.

      • Michelle

        I dont see where they are .99????

        • melissa

          Only certain areas… I'm in VA and we have .99 Kraft products this week, but a lot of other places seem to have them for 1.88.

          • Michelle

            I dont have anything like that here at WD, booooooo. :P Thanks for the info though.

      • Kmthornton

        I can't find it either. looks like they are $2/4 at my winn dixie?

    • Mrsstanley

      I also went to Kroger and bought 5+ Kraft cheese, and it didn't print for me either…

      • Mel

        If you are owed a catalina and it didn’t print, you can email them at coupon@catalinamarketing.com Give them all of the information from you receipt, and if you are owed one then they will mail it to you. I did this with a catlina on lunch meat that didn’t print from Food Lion. It only took about a week to get it back with their apologies.

    • Gilliganeng

      I went to Kroger in Crossville, TN yesterday and bought 5 Kraft cheeses and it didn't print. Is there anything you can do when that happens?

    • Kim Marie

      I went to Kroger last night and purchased 4 bars of cheese and 1 cream cheese. Mine DID print!! Yay! The cashier told me it would roll too. I haven't tried it, so I don't know for sure.

      • Fgavent

        It does roll – I have rolled it three times!

    • Amy

      I'm in Blacksburg, VA and bought five Kraft 8oz shredded cheese for 99 cents as part of the 10 item event. I got a $5 catalina at checkout, PLUS I was lucky enough to find blinkies in the store for $1 / 2 Kraft cheeses, making this a better-than-free deal! Best deal would be to buy 6 as part of the mega event, use 3 $1/2 coupons, pay $3 out of pocket and get $5 back! But you could also buy 8 (for $4 out of pocket) and still come out ahead!

      • jen

        shout out to the burg's. I'm in C'burg. Kind of bummed that all the blinkies in the C'burg store were taken… happy to find that they are all .99 cents here though!

      • wow…do they still have the blinkie up? I haven’t had a cheese coupon in forever. Would you consider getting a couple of extras & mailing them to me? I could trade some with you. If interested please email me at tpconnor4@gmail.com. thanks

    • RushNSaver

      Does anyone know if it will work at BiLo or Ingles? I am in Asheville, NC.

      • Joy

        It works at Ingles.

      • Squirrelhater

        works in Sptbg. Bi-Lo

    • Mdavis13

      I bought 5 kraft cheese and 5 cream cheese, I only got 1 $5 catilina, wondering if there is a limit per purchase

      • Gilliganeng

        You only get one catalina for 5+ kraft items if you have them all in the same transaction. If you pay for 5 in one transaction and then do a separate transaction for the other 5, you would get 2 catalinas. One for each of the transactions.

    • Boxxofsoxx

      They are also doing this same deal at MEIJER in Indianapolis 46280.

    • Bholmes75

      does anyone know if the kraft catalina works at either food lion or bi lo.

    • Nada

      I bought 5 cream cheeses in nashville, and it did not print… can you contact anyone about it?

      • Hasfam

        We bought 10 cheeses in Hendersonville yesterday and it didn't print either. they never heard of the deal and there were no signs for it. manager said he would call and check into it and call me later. if i don't hear from him I'm going to return the 10 and go somewhere else.

      • Rita

        I bought 4 shredded cheeses and one cream cheese in Brentwood and it didnt print. I would love to know who to contact. Hope we get a response.

        • Marie

          Read some of the other posts above and you’ll see who to contact.

    • guest

      Kroger in Tupelo, MS, did not print last night.

      • Dmllr813

        I am in the Jackson area in MS…typically her sale starts on Sunday and ours will start on Wednesday! I don't know if you are on the same schedule, but her sale starts on a Sunday and ours starts on Wednesday! Hope this helps!

      • Msulcardfan

        I bought 4 Kraft shredded cheeses and 1 Kraft parmesan cheese at the Kroger in South Haven MS. The catalina worked :)

    • Rebecca

      Can you freeze cream cheese?

      • Bholmes75

        I do

      • Summeremckenna

        i froze cream cheese and it was not good at all!

        • I have some tips for freezing cream cheese. I just freeze it in the package, but I have heard of people buying big blocks of it (1 or more pounds) and in that case I would cut it into 8 oz portions, wrap in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag. Thaw fully in the refrigerator. When thawed place into a bowl and whip with a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy. It really makes a world of difference if you whip it vs just serving it plain out of the package once it has been frozen and then thawed. Hope that helps.

          p.s. cream cheese has a really long shelf life anyways so you may be able to use it up before it expires.

    • Fgavent

      Can someone post the price of the Kraft Deli Deluxe Cheese at Kroger? Thanks!

      • cb

        I think it was arond $3.29 at my Kroger in the Richmond, VA area. It was not included in the mega sale.

    • tarheelbaby1

      Didn't work at Harris Teeter in Charlotte, NC on 7/20. I ended up returning one of my items because I only bought 5 in order to get the deal.

      • Bholmes75

        I got 4 bags of the 8 oz natural shredded cheese and the breakstone sour cream got the $5 at the harris teeter on mt holly hunterville rd location.

        • tarheelbaby1

          I got 2 of the 8 oz cheeses, 1 Cracker Barrel cheese, 1 Breakstone's cottage cheese and 1 Breakstone's sour cream. Looking back on my items, I now realize that my sour cream is only 8 oz. I bet that's why it didn't work. Ugh!

          • Bholmes75

            probably the coupons says for the 16 oz also. that's why I was wary about the singles cheese it didn't say it on the sign so I didn't get it but i'll try that one tomorrow. i'm saving my catalina for next week..

            • tarheelbaby1

              Was there a sign up in your store? When I asked the manager about it, she didn't know anything and said it would be posted in the store if the deal were really going on.

        • paula mcintosh

          I'm sure this has been asked but I'm tto lazy to read all the posts. if I buy 10 items will I get 2 5.00 off coupons?

          • cb

            I think that you'll only get one $5 ooyno catalina per order.

    • alibrown1993

      wow – great deal – thanks!

    • Jill

      My kroger had blinkies for $1 off 2 Kraft cheeses yesterday… so I got mine for $.33 each

    • Christina

      I wish this had been going on last week when I bought like 20 blocks of cheese!

      • Kb

        I would return them…….and buy again.

    • Rlewis614

      I bought 5 8 oz shredded cheese and it did print at Kroger in middle TN

    • Momin2009

      does anyone know if this works at winn-dixe or maybe even target??
      thanks :)

    • Beth

      This is going on at Food Lion as well…..It printed at the bottom of my receipt as advertisement last week.

      • Bholmes75


    • Sheasquier

      Boooo! Mine didn't print for me today at Kroger in Athens, Ga. Now should I return them and try again or just suck it up?

      • irisfaith

        I've always had great luck with catalinas at the Epps Bridge Kroger, but no luck at the Alps store, HTH.
        Which K did you go to?

        • Sheasquier

          East Side store.

          • Eerporter

            The Epps Bridge Kroger is the best about coupons. I never have any trouble and I use 10+ coupons every time I go.

      • maryc

        Mine didn't print here in Atlanta either. I went to customer service and they rerang the transaction. The printer wasn't working at the checkout where I went.

      • jane

        It printed at the Epps Bridge Kroger last night! Gonna try east side this morning…

      • Eerporter

        Mine printed at the Epps Bridge Kroger this afternoon. I would speak with a manager.

    • Lori

      You should call the catalina coupons and request your catalina. The number is…1-888-8coupon. The only bummer is that is take 6 to 8 weeks to get your coupon.

    • April

      I just came from Harvey's and a sign for this deal in the store. – Statesboro, GA

      • Jenny

        Thanks for letting us know. Headed that way in the morning.
        Claxton, Ga

    • Acspeer

      Has anyone found this deal working at Winn Dixie yet??
      I guess I may have to just go down and see for myself!

      • Sean

        5-8 oz Kraft cheese shredded, cubes, crumbles, or chunks will be 2/$4 at Winn Dixie starting tomorrow. Let us know how you make out.

      • I have found that Catalinas typically follow at WD as well.

    • Valerie_close

      How much is too much cheese? haha I have rolled the $5 off about 10 times! ;) There are blinkies at my Kroger for $1.00 off 2 shredded or block cheese. The best deal is to buy 4 shredded or block cheese and one cream cheese and 5 gatorades or Pepsi products. Your first transaction will be about $5.50 after dicounts and the $5 off for the Mega Sale. Then I rolled the $5.00 coupon into a separate transaction. I bought 4 more shredded cheeses, one cream cheese and 5 Dr. Peppers. I ended up getting the second transaction for 58 CENTS plus $5 dollars off my next order (which I will use to buy 5 more Kraft cheeses and 5 other mega event items!) My husband just laughs at ALL the cheese! ;)

      • Sandra

        Valerie, Which Kroger location? Thanks!

        • Valerie_close

          In Salem, Va

      • Ginger

        There is no such thing as too much cheese! :)

      • Cortknee81

        That was my plan!!! My husband also thinks it is funny but LOVES the savings!

      • Sarah

        We go through cheese like crazy here, so I agree, no such thing as too much! You can freeze shredded cheese. I just throw the bags in our deep freeze and pull it out when I need it. I also shred the blocks and put in freezer bags. Just thaw and use like normal. We can't tell any difference.

        • Jenissa

          No such thing as too much cheese… as long as you shred it instead of cut it. (ba dum dum ching) ok that was just silly. That's what free cheese does to me I guess.

    • Krbntt

      This is happening at Safeway stores (in VA), too

    • For those of you that aren't receiving your CAT, try this:

      The email address is

      Send them an email with
      -Store name and address
      -time you were there
      -what you bought
      -your name and address

      I also like to include that line right below “coupons Tendered” that has the date, time, store number, aisle number, cashier number and transaction number. Looks like this
      3/24/10 9:34 AM 0121 33 0008 23

      Or you can call (24 hours After your purchase)
      1-888-8coupon, option 3

      I've tried this before when a CAT didn't print at Bi-lo a couple weeks ago and I received my CAT in the mail within the week.

      • Eve

        Thank you so much for this handy hint …. bought the cream cheese … no catalina … called the 888 number and my catalina is on it's way! THANKS AGAIN!

        By the way, for other TN people … the girl helping me said there is some strange law that will not let the catalina print in TN .. CRAZY!

      • Bessie

        Thank you so much for this information. I did not get my catalina at Kroger, so I emailed NCSC on 07.23. I received my catalina last week!

    • Beck

      this deal is running at Lowes Foods too

    • Ginger

      Would love to know if this works in SoCal, if anyone has tried? I've tried it before (the last time you lucky guys and gals had the awesome Kraft Cat) and we didn't get it out here. My store is really hit-or-miss with signage, so usually the only way I know if it will work is by trying it.

    • Christycda96

      Ingles is doing it too

    • marie

      my local minor league baseball team has a promo..KRAFT Singles Tuesday Night Tickets
      KRAFT Singles Tuesday Night Tickets: Buy 1 Ticket Get 1 Free from KRAFT Singles with purchase. Bring your package wrapper to a game on Tuesdays for a steal of a deal! Visit kraftsingles.com for more info. Exclusions apply. thats what posted on there website.

    • Cathy

      This worked at my Kroger in Raleigh NC. I did 3 transactions to roll the $5. My dad loves lean cuisine so they were part of the $5 off for 10 also. He lets me keep all the coupons since I shop for him occassionally. I purchased 5 shredded cheese & 8 lean cuisines (should have added 3 more of the 10 item special but my brain had a glitch). Got back $4 for the LC and $5 for the cheese. Did it again, got $4 & $5. The clerk was impressed that I KNEW what was coming out of the coupon machine. My final transaction included 5 cream cheese, the Dr. Pepper Ice cream topping and several other items. Had a few good deals from the coupon load ups onto my Kroger card. $2 off Venus disp. razors, $2 off Smart Balance Milk…I had 2 $2 coupons on the Smart Balance Milk also. The milk was on special for 2/$6 so they were…you guessed it – FREE!! My total before Kroger card & coupons $116.xx. After card, coupons and throwing in the $18 of free cash back, my OOP was $21.xx. I then got $5 & $2.50. Not bad.

    • can you go to one store get the catalina then go to another store to do a similar transaction again

      • Cindyrella

        You can do it multiple times in the same store, just in separate transactions. And yes, you can do it in different stores.

      • Bholmes75

        sweet saves me a trip

    • Trammellclan3

      Just got back from Kroger (Apex, NC). Bought 5 gatorade, 5 Kraft shredded cheese,
      1 A & W ice cream topping for $6.24 after $5 off 10 items and a $3 Catalina (Lean Cuisine)…..Then I got a $7.50 in Catalinas for my next shopping extravaganza. Any way I look at it…..Thats FREE :)

    • Trammellclan3

      Anybody seen any Blinkies for $1 off 2 Kraft Cheese. My Kroger was all out…….go figure

    • Sturkie

      How do you cash in or qualify for this deal though? I did it at Publix and the Catalina printout wasn't scannable, so I don't know how to qualify.

      • littlemama

        My Publix doesn't have a catalina machine!

    • save$

      There are no signs for the cheese deal. I saw it on a sticky on the shredded cheese at Kroger. I bought 15 cheeses total and only recieved 1 cat. Can you return food at Kroger? because if I would of known I would not of bought all that cheese.

      • save$

        Also my Kroger said they are going to stop taking printables. I'm really getting tired of Kroger but I don't know where else to shop in Ohio.

        • Valerie_close

          Tell them you will report it to central office. The policy is to take printables and they must abide by corporate's policies.

          • Jessica

            Actually, when I emailed corporate about a similar issue I received an email reply that said basically the store manager has the right to refuse any coupon…basically, they didn't care at all.

        • Guest

          Giant Eagle :)

      • Robinpedigo

        I think you have to purchase it in 3 different transactions. I haven't gone to Kroger this week and I hope I can make it work.

      • You must do 3 transactions! I did 2!! Got 2-$5 oyno!!

      • GeorgesMom

        I have returned food to Kroger before without a problem. I would definitely try to return it and repurchase it in different transactions; it would be worth the $10 to me. Also, our Kroger had a coupon dispenser for $1/2 shredded or chunks, which made it an even better deal! I guess it would be a better deal if they had the stuff in stock. Come on Kroger, step it up!

    • pam

      i am confused about the catalina deals. I am not sure how they work. are you just posting ones that print when you check out? i only shop at publix and cvs so i never get catalinas. So do all these only apply to those folks who do get them or is there some place i can go to get them. I have a winn dixie but how do you know what catalinas will print and I really dislike that store and shopping at it. thanks for any input

    • guest

      I went to my Kroger yesterday and the deal didn't print! I showed them your information and they gave me a $5 gift card instead – the power of the printed word!

    • Donna

      When I went to our Kroger yesterday, they had Ivory body wash for $1 a bottle. I had two coupons for 50 cents off 1, so I got both free!! Check it out at your Kroger!

    • Olisa56

      Does anyone know if you can do this more than once and get the Catalina $5 off multiple times?

    • Ginger

      Working in Dallas, TX Bought 5 Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

    • Rn4txkids

      Worked in Allen, TX: Bought 3 Philly cream cheeses and 2 shredded Cheddars….. $5 back! Not to mention that they have $1/2 blinkies in front of the cheese. And I heard that it will roll!!!! Going back today. So, my scenario today will be to buy 10 shredded cheeses, which will be $18.80 on the mega deal… Give them 5 $1/2 coupons AND my $5 catalina from yesterday. OOP: $8.80 and will receive another $5 back. $3.80 net for 10 cheeses!!! That will last us for months!!! :)

      • Jenharring

        I just wish that many cheese would last us months, lol, it might last us 2 weeks. I usually buy like 30 at a time

    • Bholmes75

      has anyone tried it at food lion I didn't see a sign there saw one at harris teeter so i didn't even attempt.

    • Mhbuchanan97

      Okay..I'm new at this. Bought 2 Breakstone SourCream, 3 Philly Cream Cheese, 7 Red Gold tomatoes, gallon milk.. OOP after coupons and Mega Event was $10.02. Didn't get the Kraft $5 off catalina coupon. What did I do wrong?
      I noticed on my receipt the sour cream was reg price..didn't think that matter but maybe?
      Any ideas on why I didn't get the $5 Kraft deal?

      • Rgbarron01

        Did you buy the 16oz sour cream? The cat I have advertising the deal indicates that the size requirement for the sour cream (both kinds) is 16 oz. Just a guess.

        • Mhbuchanan97

          Yes. I bought the 16oz and used the printable coupon.

          • MaryT

            I also bought the 16 oz and all the right other items at Harris Teeter (Burlington, NC) and didn't get the Catalina, but I was in a hurry and didn't think about not having it in my grubby little paw until I was almost home. Since it's a 20-minute drive for me to go to HT anyway, and I was pushing it to get home before Vacation Bible School, I just forfeited and will do better with follow-up next time. :o(

            • MaryT

              Let me say, though, on a positive note, for the FIRST time, I saved MORE than I spent! I spent $103 oop and saved $148 on coupons and vic savings ($85 in coupons alone!!). I even had meat and a bit of produce, so I don't feel so bad about the shopping trip, even without the catalina! :o)

      • Tnjenny05

        The cream cheese did not work for me today in Knoxville. I bought the shredded cheese yesterday and it worked, so I guess different areas have different participating items.

        • Luana

          I bought the cream cheese (on the 21st) in O.R. as well as the shredded and it worked.

      • Did you get the 16 oz sour cream?

      • Justin

        If that happens- point it out and ask to speak to a manager, I bought 10 participating items and it did not print my cats- I called the manager over and they gave me $10.00 back in cash. Not saying they will do this everywhere but it is always good to ask.

        • Mhbuchanan97

          Thanks for all the help! I ended up calling Catalina today and they were SUPER helpful. $5 catalina coupon is in the mail! :-)

          • Christina

            I had the same issue – do you know the Catalina phone number or where I could find it?

    • Bholmes75

      Food lion is participating

    • Guest

      Here what I found only buy the cheese in one transaction. cream cheese and sour cream are working together but have found not with you buy with the cheese. so I would do two transactions.

      I saved 104 bucks paid 19.40 in 3 transactions.

    • Amanda K.

      If your Catalina is clearly marked in the store and does not print, you can also just talk to the cashier or service desk. They will probably give you a gift card or load it onto your Kroger plus card. I've had to do this several times and they are always really nice about it!

    • Mhbuchanan97

      Thanks for all the help! I ended up calling Catalina today and they were SUPER helpful. $5 catalina coupon is in the mail! :-)

        I just went to Krogers and bought 5 Kraft shredded cheeses. I didn't get the catalina either. I ended up at the service desk. The service desk lady was having a very bad day. They made her work it with no help bec. they were short of cashiers. People were yelling at her bec. of the long wait. I waited 30 minutes before it was my turn due to a man buying a money order trying to pay in something other than US money and a lady returning formula she'd just bought so she could use the catalinas she'd just gotten. Finally – it was my turn. The dairy person told the SD worker to go with me to look at the catalina sign. She said – but I have 7 people waiting (and they were not being nice – yelling etc). So – we went to look. She kept my reciept and gave me $5. I'm glad I got my money but I hope they get her some help!

        This deal is working in the Louisville, KY area stores. Went to Krogers today and bought two shredded cheeses, 1 block cheese, and two cream cheeses and received my $5 off for next order. Thanks for all the helpful info. from this site.

      The cheese deal combined with the mega event was the bomb! Thanks to everyones comments below I was able to save over $140. Cats printed on another terminal but the cashier was super helpful and friendly.

      I just call the cat number to get my coupon , i bought 5 cream cheese and she told me that TN has some dairy law and that the cream cheese was not part of the offer. Anyone have any ideas about this.

      Sorry, late to the thread. Has anyone tried the Kroger on Forest in Columbia? I don't want to waste my time if it won't work since I really don't like Kroger anyway.

      1.With the catalina deal this week, can you buy 10 of the participating items this week and get two $5 off printed.
      2.I have one froma a week or so ago and want to use it. Can I use it with this and still have it print out my cat. coupon.
      3. How many of of the $5 off or any money off like these can you use in one trasaction. Should I break my order into more than one.
