      I bought 4 Fiber One chewy bars yesterday and did not get a catalina. BOOOOO!!!!

      • Sam

        Not sure when the catalina started, but I didnt get it at Kroger in Cary yesterday and I bought enough to qualify – however with my coupons plus 50% off on what I bought, I got everything very cheap anyway.

        I have close to 30 boxes of Kelloggs right now practically free from Harris Teeter, so I am not going to sweat this….

    • DJ Flamingo

      I bought 4 packages of Fiber One bars at $1.74 each yesterday at Kroger. Used the $.50 off coupons & had 1 Shortcuts & 1 Cellfire coupon for .50 each. I did not receive a $4.00 off Catalina. This was in Macon, GA.

    • GAVette

      No catalina printed for me either when I purchased the Fiber One bars……….A Kroger issue or just not valid in Georgia??

    • Justsayann

      Is the catalina deal still going on the fiber one bars? I thought it expired at the end of July. Also my store had the sizes not on the catalina deal at 50% for the Cinnamon toast crunch.

    • Angela

      Didn't the Catalina deal for Fiber One/Nature Valley bars expire on 7/31?

    • Magen

      Do you have to buy 4 cereals or can you mix and match with the bars to get your 4 items?

    • Rebekah Jones

      At my Kroger (Augusta, GA), none of the catalina cereals were on the 50% off sale, and several of the ones listed here weren't either. I was able to get a couple boxes at relatively good prices when stacking ecoupons and paper coupons, but not as good as I was hoping!

      • aczek16

        i live in augusta too. if you dont mind me asking, how much to you pay per box. i need to know if its worth going out there or not. :)

        • Fgavent

          I went to North Augusta, SC yesterday. It is NOT worth a special trip. Like the previous posts, the catalina does not usually correspond to the cereal on sale. I bought the Honey Nut Cheerios (4 boxes) because that it what my family likes and the catalina did not print (it is not included in the catalina list above).

        • Rebekah Jones

          It's not worth a special trip. I waited to do my shopping until Thursday specifically to make this sale, but the “select General Mills” cereals are very select, lol! And since the Catalina and sale don't match up…. I bought some 'cause I could stack my e-coupons and paper coupons and so paid $.99 ea for 2 Total, and just over $1 ea for two more. But the ones I really wanted weren't on sale… 's ok! Saving coupons for the next time!

      • Lisanole78

        Same in Marietta. Very disappointing! I still bought a couple of boxes since i had paper and e-coupons….I think I paid $1.30 for the giant box (24oz) of CTC and maybe $1.40 for the big box (16 oz.) of Lucky Charms.

    • Pinkandblackcrazy

      on the fiber one chewy bars and the nut cluster how are they free

      • debbie33

        That is exactly what I am trying to figure out. I am so confused right now.

        • littlemama

          The nut clusters and bars are free if you combine your mani q with the cellfire q. I think the fiber one bars are actually .50 cents though.

      • Rielcoupons

        If you buy 4 (or 1 nut cluster and 3 more of any GM product), then use 4, $1 coupons that makes each $.89. Then you get the additional $4 off for buying 4 products.

      • Loyal2disney

        I was wondering the same thing. I don't think they are free…but end up being about $.50 a box which is still really good.

      • courtney_80

        they are not as far as i can tell. the catalina for the nature valley products and fiber one bars ended on 7/31. maybe someone else has better information than me, though. the current catalina deal in only for the above specified cereals.

        • courtney_80

          i forgot to add that if you have the cellfire q and your store will allow you to use both e-coupon and paper q, you can get one bag of nut clusters free. the fiber one bars will still cost you about $0.49 for one box.

      • ireneY

        Nut clusters $1 e-Q + $.50 doubled = $2 discount. Free at my store after 50% off.
        Fiber One bars $.50 e-Q + $.50 doubled = $1.50 discount. Almost free after 50%.

    • Freedomspradley1

      My Kroger has the following items listed for the 50% off sale: Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks Select Varieties; 6-10 ct Fiber One Chewy Bars Select Varieties, 5 ct General Mills Cereal Select Varieties, 10.6-25.25 oz Nature Valley Nut Clusters Select Varieties, 5 oz Quaker Instant Oatmeal Select Varieties, 10.9-16.2 oz Quaker Cereal Select Varieties, 14-16 oz. I haven't found where Kroger is advertising the Catalina deal on General Mills Cereal. Either way, the Nature Valley and Fiber One bars don't appear to go with the catalina deal based on Jenny's list of participating products.

      • Rgbarron01

        Same list for Southern Indiana (Louisville area). The only breakfast/granola bars included in the 50% sale were the Fiber One Chewy bars; only one type of Total Cereal (original whole grain) was included (not the tastier varieties!). The General Mills cat is working–I bought 4 boxes of Wheaties Fuel off the discount rack (crushed outer boxes…cereal is fine) for $1.19 each ($0.19 after $1 coupons, yay!) and rec'd the $4 cat. There were shelf tags advertising the cat…I forgot to see when the deal expired (it's been going on forever, it seems…).

        • ireneY

          Strange, the Fuel did not ring up 50% in Georgia.

          • Rgbarron01

            Sorry, I wasn't clear. The Fuel was NOT part of the 50% off sale…but, IS a participating item in the $4 cat deal–two different events! The Wheaties Fuel is usually $4.58/box (eek!). I was thrilled to find it on the clearance rack:-)

      • courtney_80

        the catalina deal is only on the cereal. in my region, very few cereals for the cat matched up with the 1/2 off sale. i purchased total (original flakes), fiber one honey clusters, and fiber one original for this deal.

        3 total @ 1.78 each = 5.28
        1 fiber one @ 2.34 = 2.34

        used 1 q for $1/1 fiber one (a cat i had from kroger)
        used 3 q's for $0.75/1 total (2.25)
        got back $4 catalina

        total cost = $0.37 for all four boxes of cereal.

        i then rolled the cat on a couple more transactions. it works, you just have to be really careful about getting the correct sizes and types. HTH

    • danellewest

      Can you mix & match the cereals & other products listed to get the catalina? For example, buy 2 cinnamon toast crunch & 2 fiber one bars?

    • La

      I am new to this, so a little confused. Can you use an e-coupon AND a mfg coupon?

      I also bought 4 yesterday and did not get a catalina coupon.

      • aczek16

        yes. because the ecoupon is considered a store coupon.

      • Hasfam

        I couldn't at my krogers. My e-coupon showed up and they said I couldn't use the mfr paper coupon with it. I said fine and walked out.

      • Natalie

        I have always been able to, but after speaking with someone from Kroger's e Coupon help line today, she said that the policy has always been, one coupon per item (either man Q or eQ). She said that some stores may allow you to use both, but they are not supposed to. It seems to me by all the complaints on here, that they are cracking down. Such a bummer! If you want to see it in writing, it also states that rule on the Kroger eCoupon help page.

    • Highlandersweare

      I bought 4 yesterday – 2 Quaker Oat Squares & 2 Cap. Crunch. No catalina. :-(

    • KimberlyUTK

      The cereals that are part of the $4 Catalina are not included in my Kroger's sale in Knoxville, TN.

      The Fiber One Chewy Bars are not part of the Catalina anyway. It's the Fiber One Cereal and only the the Honey Clusters cereal, I believe. There should be a white sticker on the shelf explaining the Catalina.

      The Cinnamon Toast Crunch is super expensive for the tiny box that is part of the Catalina. The other CTC is HUGE and 2.09 I believe. You are still getting a good deal, especially if you use a coupon and a cellfire/Kroger e-coupon.

    • Caritob40

      How can one make sure what to buy in order get the $4 catalina ???

      • Nina

        The list with specific cereals and sizes is posted above the half-off sale items.

    • Debbie

      Just got back from Kroger and was really disappointed. I bought 4 boxes of Fiber One bars and did not get a catalina. The cereal boxes that are half off are not part of the $4 catalina either. They were also out of the nut clusters.

    • Hasfam

      Just got back form my local krogers in Goodlettsville, TN.
      Bought 3 diff GM cereals, all on the cat list and a fiber bar, also on the list. No Cat.
      But a Cat slip came out for a $3.50 Q on the next Fiber bars starting 8/9.
      Also, I had an ecoupon of .55c for the Fiberbars which came off when i swiped my card, but they or the U-Scan would not take my reg coupon. I had ecoupons for the other items and they took my rg coupons as well. Not what i had hoped for overall. Am going to call a couple of other krogers to see of they have the catalina deal going on. Its pantry sunday at our church this weekend and they need cereal s was hoping to load some up for them.

    • Jilljchildre

      none of the cats. match up with the 50% off cereals here on the southside of Atlanta either. I was totally bummed. I spent 20 minutes on the cereal aisle and couldn't come up with anything that matched up with the cats. or that was a super bargain, even with coupons.

      • Hasfam

        I just went to another krogers, 8 miles up the road because they said they had the cat deal going on. Yes they did, but like your store NONE matched the 1/2 off cereals. In fact, the cereals on the cat deal were ALL super high in price. Not going to waste anymore time on this. Very dissapointed after following all the hype on these coupon sites and blogs. Better days are ahead.

    • mlaurie406

      I haven't been to my Kroger yet, but they had their ad listing as buy 4 Quacker/GM product for $10 and get 2 free gallons of milk through the end of the sale week (I'm in Michigan). Did anyone else's store have this?? I'm almost thinking they may have done this for the whole week instead of the 3 day sale. I'm going tonight, so we'll see!

    • ireneY

      I bought 4 Fiber One nut clusters in GA and got $4 Cat. The regular Total flakes should be included as well, but not sure since I screwed up my second set of $4 Cat by including Nut Clusters, which are 50%, but not for Cats. Yeesh… what a complicated deal!

    • Autball

      All of you that are saying you did'nt get the catalina, also purchased some sort of bars- which are 1/2 price- not part of the buy 4 cereals get -$4 off as listed at the top.
      This might be the problem.

      • Hasfam

        I printed my shopping list from the above list and included all the catalina items only. This was about 2 hrs ago and I'm looking at the paper now. It clearly shows the Fiber One bars and the NV bars with the line underneath saying “Buy any 4 participating cereals, Get $4 off your next order.” I just went by what was listed here. NOW, I look up there and they are not included. Someone obviously changed the info in the past 2 hours.

    • Randall

      No after sale coupons printed here in Savannah, GA either but nor were they advertised. A lot of the cereals were large boxes that they normally don't stock with a $6 regular price. So when you use $1/2 coupon not very appealing. The fruit snacks and cereal/fiber bars were a great deal after I used my manufactuers coupon along with my Kroger (cellfire) & shortcuts e-coupons. I think most of these I bought were close to fre for me. Man…Captain Crunch coupons must be rare.

      • Hasfam

        my kroger wouldn't let me use my e-coupon with a mfr Q on the bars otherwise I would have gotten some. Its a c—p shoot down here when it comes to krogers.
        glad you had better luck.

        • Randall

          Isn't all that done by the register? I usually go self checkout. I don't think the cashier ever notices or even cares that there is an e-coupon showing on the transaction when they scan my mfg. coups.

    • Lauram7

      I went to the Cary, NC Kroger. I got a $3.50 catalina that can be used starting 8/9, but the sale will be over then. I was thinking I was going to get a $4 cat right then and use it on four more products. Bummer!

      BTW, I love this site so much – – it's like Christmas seeing what is going to be posted next! I appreciate all of the work done for me here – – it's hard for me to do a lot of figuring for myself with two little kids.

    • Be careful with the sizes she listed above!!!!!!! She listed Cinnamon Toast Crunch 11.8 oz. in the top “Participating Products” section, but Cinnamon Toast Crunch 24.9 oz in the actual deal match-up section. I bought the 11.8 oz (because it seemed to match all of the other participating product sizes) and it DID NOT generate the catalina. I was out $4 on that order, but luckily my other orders had the Fiber One and Lucky Charms cereals which have the correct sizes listed here.

      • Sarden3

        I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Jenny for all she does to help each and everyone. I have saved so much money using the site I can't imagine not having all this info. So as for me and my house we are THANKFUL!!!!!

    • Also, does anyone know if this catalina is limited to one $4 cat printed per order like most are? The Soda Pop dessert toppers are generating multiple cats in one order, so I wondered if anyone knew about the General Mills one.

    • debbie33

      Does anyone have # for Catalina and a site that lists all their deals right now? Also is there a coorprate # for kroger? I had the worst experience of my life and would like to get my complaint in.

    • Noramk

      I thought I was getting the right things for the $4 catalina, but it didn't work. Was hoping a symbol would show on the check out screen to indicate if the products I was buying were correct (like with the mega sales where it shows a + sign or something), but I guess I chose wrong. Oh, well, I still bought 6 items total and paid only $6. So still a good deal – just not fabulous!!

    • Jacwkc

      I bought the correct sizes specified on the page for this site and no $4 printed. I asked at the customer service desk and they called the manager and he said that this promotion did not exit with Kroger. This is the Kroger in Garner, NC off Hwy 70. Anyone else have this problem? The deal they have is 50% off of selected cereal products.

      • Hasfam

        The manager in goodlettsville, tn told me the same thing, but the krogers 8 miles over had the catalina going on. however, when I called the store in the next town, the manager had me on hold for 10 min to go and find out. none of the krogers around here knows whats going on. all clueless.

      • Enoughsaid

        Kroger has an ad in the 7/11/10 ss for this cat deal. It is on the same page with the $2 on any one Neutrogena Facial Moisturizer. This was in tha Agusta, Ga. newspaper. It has the list of products but not the size.

    • Guest

      Can we get an update on this? Seems most people here are not getting this or the sizes needed are not part of sale.

      • Whitney

        The 11.8 oz. cinnamon toast crunch, which is included in the $4 OYNO offer IS NOT included in the 50% sale. The only cinnamon toast crunch sizes included in the 50% off sale are 17 oz. & 24.9 oz. Hope this helps.

    • Joannashipp

      I bought two Multigrain Cheerios and two Golden grahams in the size listed and the $4 cataline printed but those sizes weren't 50% off. My Krogers in Lynchburg, VA didn't have any 50% General Mills cereal.

    • Whitney

      Nature Valley granola bars (of any kind) are not included in the sale. I have a copy of the official list of participating items and they aren't included. NV nut clusters ARE included, though.

    • Farcoup

      Catalina didn't work for me either but, I still got 8 boxes of fiber one bars and 4 bags of nut clusters for $8.51. Not bad!

    • mabell4tn

      At my Kroger the products that were 50% off were not included in the Catalina deal. Honey Nut Cheerios had the Catalina deal, but not 50% off. Multi-grain Cheerios were 50% off, but not included in the Catalina deal. The 50% off was still a good deal with the e-coupon/paper coupon combo.

    • Jacwkc

      O.K. I called Kroger Corp. They gave me the number to Catalina. I called catalina and they told me that they were not allowed to tell me which cereals were on the list. They told me that the store working with General Mills should have a list. He did tell me that if I gave him the UPC codes off of the four I bought he could tell me which if any were correct. The one pound box of Lucky Charms was correct but the only size accepted on Cinnamon Toast Crunch is the 12.8 ounce size. He said if I called Kroger Corp. back or called General Mills Corp. that I would probably get ping ponked back and forth between the two with neither one being able to explain to me why they did not put this promo in their add. I was however grateful that they were on 50 percent off and I had coupons. I try very hard to go exactly by the specifics on the coupon and I guess I was a little disappointed.

      • Guest

        This was in the Sunday ad back on 7/11 by the way.

    • shelly

      This is a SUPER tricky Cat deal. From what I've read on other forums (and I do suggest checking a few different sources before you head out) the only cereals that overlap are the Fiber One Original Bran 16.2 oz, the Fiber One Clusters 14.25 oz, and the Lucky Charms 16 oz. My region had ridiculously high prices compared to others, so I passed.

      I also want to add that when people are questioning the math in posts like this, or saying that it didn't work for them, they are not attacking Jenny or the site. But, if someone is going to post deals like this, it is incumbent upon them to provide correct information. Again, I do suggest comparing a few different sources before you head out, just to make sure! No one person can be expected to get everything right 100% of the time.

      • Yoder Tiffany

        the plain Total is part of it too! 79 cents after the catalina. FREE after coupons! Got 4 boxes of it this morning and 4 of the Fiber One Honey Clusters.

    • sarahcas

      The Betty Crocker fruit roll ups were on sale for $1.09 at my store in Knoxville, TN. All the other fruit snacks were $1.29-$1.39 if I remember correctly.

    • Smoochy_one

      The Nature Valley granola bars were $2.59 at my Kroger, but I had a couple of 50 cents off coupons, so it at least made them $1.59. Plus this was my first time ever shopping at Kroger & I saved 52%!

    • Ida

      Just back from Kroger. Got 2 boxes of Multigrain Cheerios an 2 boxes of Total bran flakes. I got the $4 catalina. I bought several other items and ended up only paying $5.10 out of pocket. Factoring in the catalina, it's like I paid $1.10. Love it. Thank you, Jenny, for all you do here. I love your site and it has helped me save lots of money on my last two Kroger trips.

    • LD

      I just for back from 3 different krogers. All were out of the Fiber One 90 calorie chewy bars except 1 store had 1 box. When I bought the 1 box it printed out an ad saying a catalina would start on 8/9 for $2.50 oyno 4 boxes (I buy 4 at a time since they'll only take 2 IPs for each of the sites that have them right now). I got rainchecks and will definitely buy after the 9th. That will make them about $0.50 for all 4 boxes!!! Super excited, I eat one every day.

    • deb

      Went to Kroger and am very disappointed. NV bars were $2.80, Fiber bars $3.60 b4 50 off. Used mq and thought I used eq but it turned out bars didn't ring up 1/2 off, mq didn't double, and eqs didn't even show up! Took receipt to register and was told policy was if item rang up wrong it should be free but people take advantage of policy so she wouldn't honor it! She gave me 1/2 refund, no catalina for cereal. Won't go back. Oh wait, I won Brats on Summer of Savings and that didn't come off either. Manager said it must not be on card but I had printout to prove it was there but once again it wasn't honored. Thanks for letting me vent!! Central Ga. Kroger by the way.

      • Glosmommy

        My experience with the free winnings from the Summer of Savings is that your cashier must scan your Kroger card before anything is rang up.

        • deb

          Thanks I will give Kroger another try on the Brats and give my card first.

    • Kim

      I was wondering if anyone has gotten a 4 dollar or 2 dollar off their next grocery order and it doesn't say any of the usual catalina things( like Thank You from general mills..etc) I keep getting these probably 12-15 dollars worth in the past 2 weeks definitely not complaining just trying to figure out what I did so I can do it again.. :D..And Thank You Jenny for all your hard work ..I Love this place..can't wait to check out the newest deals !!

      • Pam

        Yes, I got a $4 coupon yesterday and, just like you said, it just read $4 off, with no manufacturer or anything. I actually thought I had somehow taken advantage of the GM cereal deal. Like someone else said, it appeared that none of the half price cereals qualified for the $4 catalina, so I didn't even try, just picked up several boxes of what I had coupons for. I had actually thought about heading back to Kroger while I was out to buyt more cereal…maybe not now that I know there was probably no connection.

    • Mshannon7

      My store had way different prices than what was listed above! The granola bars rang up at full price, and the lucky charms were way higher than what was listed at the price. Even with the catalina deal it would have beev over $1/box (which isn't really bad, but compared to the $.34 I decided to pass. It is amazing how different the stores are priced! A little disappointed in the 1/2 off sale, as I think it was very misleading. Jenny, thank you for all the hard work you put in figuring everything out. Most of the time it works out great!

        My prices were different too as I posted earlier but I am still trying to figure out if I did something wrong with the q's. I gave my paper q's first then my Kroger card. But I don't understand why the 50 cent q's didn't double? My e q's are still on My Account so I can still use them right?
        I also want to thank Jenny and everyone who submits info. This makes shopping more time saving and like today – very interesting!

          You have to give your Kroger card to the cashier before the paper coupons for them to double. The next time you go just take your receipt to customer service and they should give you cash for the amount that should have doubled.

      Went to Kroger this evening to take advantage of the General Mills sale and 4 for $4 catalina, but they out smarted me!!! None of the deals overlapped so you couldn't take advantage of both. If a 12 oz. box was part of the catalina, then the larger boxes weren't, but were part of the half off sale. Oh well. Still got good deals.

      I just wanted to say that although I sort of ranted and complained about this deal in a few posts, I was not complaining about this site or the information jenny provided. This is by far one of the absolute best coupon sites on the web and I not only love it but rely on it daily. Thank you so much for all your hard work which makes our lives so much easier.

      Wow, wish I had read these comments before heading out to the store. Just got back from vacation and was in a hurry to catch this deal. Catalina did not print for me either. Still great prices on cereal my family loves with the half off sale and coupons. However, if I had read the comments, like I usually do, I would have stayed home. I did find eggs for 50 cents/dozen though, so all in all not too disappointing.

      Getting frustrated with Kroger! I wish that they would have an official coupon policy instead of changing it to suit their needs. I went there yesterday to take advantage of some of the 50% deals, and they told me that they would no longer double ANY internet printed Q even if it doesn't say do not double. I politely asked why and she told me that she doesn't know which ones are fraud. Then they have started limiting the amount of MF Q's (out of the sunday paper) I was told that you can only use 2 Q's that are alike. Is anyone else having issues or is it just here in Savannah.

        From what I gather on different forums its happening everywhere but in pockets. I have krogers all around me and they are all different. personally I can't stand krogers and stopped going there 2 yrs ago but started going back when I started couponing a few weeks ago. I figure, If I can take food off their shelves for pennies or for free, I don't mind going in….but its been a 15 min hassle everytime.

        Lisa….Thursday I used 5 internet printed coups on the GM/BC promotion at the self checkout with no problems. 2 of them were even duplicates of one of the others. This was at the Abercorn location. Also they were all doubled. Isn't the doubling done by the register anyway?

      • Katkoupon

        I understand your frustration as well. Several weeks back I was reading others' comments about their stores not taking IP, I decided to ask at CS b4 I shopped, that lady didn't know, so she asked one of the managers that was close by, and she said no, they do not accept them due to fraudulent coupons (she was flipping my IP I'd handed her over and was studying it, got the feeling she thought it was fake). I asked her when they stopped taking them and she said they never did. I knew differently and just said thank you and took my cpn back. Well, I tried using them at the register anyway, since that mgr's story didn't add up, and the cashier took them np. I was wondering if I did anything wrong, so I emailed Kroger and asked for Kroger's coupon policy. They did email back detailing coupon policy for my area (Atlanta division). I printed it out and take it with me each time I shop, jic I have any trouble. Maybe you can email them as well and see if you get a policy you can print. I haven't pulled mine out yet, but I am armed and ready if need be. Basically mine said: DOUBLE Q: MQ 50c or less will be doubled when a plus card is used, 51c and up will be redeemed at face value, this does not apply to “free”, Kroger, Catalina, Retail Food Store Q, EC, or items prohibited by law. PHARMACY Q were explained (but I don't use them, if anyone wants the details I will post). GENERAL Q POLICY: Only (2) internet Q per mfr, per visit, per day are accepted, expired Q will not be accepted. There is a limit of (1) MQ per item. The amt refunded cannot exceed the price of the item. HTH!!!

      I just got back from Kroger. I ended up passing on the cereal deals cause I didn't want to chance messing up on the $4 Cat, so I just stuck with the Chex Mix/Golden Graham Bars (3@49c ea), FO Bars 90 cal (3@57c ea) and NV Cluster Bags…This is what I wanted to share, I don't know if it will work for everyone…I only bought 2 NV cluster bags, thinking I would save $2 with my (2) $1/1 IP cpns and another $1 with my EC, and it should've been 78c for both bags. BUT, I bought one of each flavor (almond and nut lovers) and (2) $1 EC's came off!!! So I made 22c on (2) bags of NV Clusters! Just wanted to share in case anyone else wanted to try, if you are buying multiples anyway and have more than 1 EC loaded to their Kroger card, try buying different flavors and see if it works for you!

      • Katkoupon

        Also, Right Guard Total Defense Deods were on sale for $2.49 ea, I had a B1G1 MQ and a $1 off MQ (sry don't remember where they came from) and an EC for $2/2, so I made 51c profit on 2 deod! AND, I printed Ronzoni cpns from their website last week. (2) $1/2 Healthy Harvest and (2) 75c/1 Smart Taste. Most of these were on sale 10/$10. So I got (2) Smart Taste for 25c each & (4) Healthy Harvest for 50c each! HTH!

    • Kleverett07

      So I went to Kroger this morning to get my Cinnamon Toast Crunch got the big boxes so wasn't worried about the Cat but when I checked out using my Kroger Card I had 6.00 come off my order and have no idea where it came from I called my friend and told her and she looked at her Kroger account online and she has a 5 dollar coupon on her card for her next order anyone else getting that we have no idea where it came from but I was very greatful especially walking out of there paying 1.16 for 4 24oz boxes of my hubby's favorite cereal :)

      • Severance_clan

        That very same thing happened to me today. I went in to get my P&G items, knowing that my total would be only $0.53 after coupons. I wasn't able to use my Old Spice coupon because my total was too low. For some reason a $4 e coupon came off – don't know why. It would have been nice to know ahead of time and I could have bought $4 in groceries, used my Old Spice coupon, and still owed nothing. Hope this makes sense.

    • Spepper40

      Catalina did print, but it was $2.00 off FIVE boxes of cereal on my next order.

    • Karen

      Can you use a manufactuers coupon and a cellfire coupon on same item

    • Damahurin

      I went for both me and my mom. Got 5 boxes of cereal, 16 Bc fruit snacks, 6 Golden Graham and chex bars, 5 nv granola clusters, 6 fiber one chewy bars for $28. All my e-coupons came off and my other coupons came off, they even doubled the ones that say not to double! I thought I did prerry good and I got one $4 cat.

      so I went to Kroger yesterday and purchased 10 gm products that were listed and no Catalina coupons printed? I went to service desk to ask why and they told me to call Catalina so I did. They looked up my receipt and told me that only there of my items were the correct ones. that i have to go back to the store and figure out what the problem was there? how annoying

      • Michele

        Do you have the number for Catalina?? I thought there was a Cat Deal for Capri Sun but when I bought 4 boxes nothing printed. There was not a catalina sticker on the shelf but Jenny has it listed as a Cat deal. How do I know who is correct?

        • lyssibee

          There is a Catalina offer but it is for the Capri-Sun 100% Juice, not the regular ones. The 100% juice was not part of the sale. HTH.

          • Michele

            I didn't catch that thank you!!

    • Michele

      Did anyone try to do the Capri Sun Cat deal?? I bought 4 boxes at Kroger and nothing printed. On Jenny's current list it is showing a Cat deal through 8//8?? Can anyone help?

    • Mckee Melissa

      My Kroger shelves were empty on most of the 4 day items. Went out close to midnight on last day though, my fault. Next time a 4 day sale hits, make sure you get there on the first day if you want to make sure you get in on the good deals. Some of my favorites were on sale and they were out of stock.
