ShopRite: Smart Balance Eggs $0.49

This deal is in the ShopRite match ups this week however I wanted to just point it out since it’s a great price on eggs.  There is a Smart Balance catalina has been around for a couple of weeks however I have yet to hear of it actually printing.  But there really has not been anything that has been a good enough price to try it out on.  Until now.

This week the Smart Balance Eggs are half price at only $1.49.  Pair it with this possible catalina and here is your deal:

Smart Balance Eggs $1.49
Smart Balance Catalina good through 7/19:
Buy 2 Get $1.00
Buy 3 Get $2.00
Buy 4 or more Get $5

Deal Idea:
Buy 4 Smart Balance Eggs $1.49 each
Pay: $5.96
Get a $5.00 catalina
$0.24 each after coupon

UPDATE: I purchased these today and the catalina did not print. I called catalina marketing this morning and they said that the promotion is running at ShopRite. They need to just get the records from the store tomorrow and then they can review my purchase to make sure I qualified. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up on my experience with it today.

Let us know if this has actually printed for you.

    I have not tried to use this yet, ….but have received several register tapes advertising the catalina…will try tomorrow.

  • Stacey

    4 dozen at $0.24 each! That’s a lot of egg salad and devilled eggs… =)

  • liz

    hope this deal is a go! 🙂 can you freeze eggs?

    • Stacey

      according to All You Magazine, you can! Check out there website and search for uncommon food items that you can freeze.

  • Stephanie

    I did the smart balance milk last week. It worked just fine.
    4x $3.99 each
    4x -$2 MQ
    = $7.96 OOP + $5 cat = $2.96 after cat

    Eggs last pretty long in the fridge. This is going to be great for my http://www.healthybabyhomeparty.com brunch next week.

  • Kristy

    Do u mean starting tmrw 7/11? Or it already ended today?

  • satceypunk

    Unfortunately, both the shoprite’s near me do not carry this brand eggs.I still have 4 printable coupons for $.50/1 that expire 7/11. If anyone is still holding on to these that would make the deal even sweeter!

    • Victoria

      I am not sure if your shoprite has an organic section, but that is where I find these at mine. Not where the eggs and milk are. Hope that helps!

      • staceypunk

        Thanks Victoria. I actually called to check, and they said they just got 15 cases in. Yay! Now to see if they will accept my expired coupons (7/11/10). I have to call the front desk, the girl on Saturday said she thinks they might take them up to one week expired.

        • staceypunk

          Nope, called and they take expired Shoprite store coupons one week after expiration. That is still nice, but doesn’t help me. Can’t complain about .24 eggs though!

          • Victoria

            Bummer, but yeah, still a great deal! Now I just have to get in touch with catalina marketing, my cat didn’t print!!!

  • Mary

    I tried this today as well and it didn’t work.

    • Cindy

      make sure you call catalina marketing. If you call tomorrow they will have the info on your purchase updated. I called this morning and they see that it is a promotion at the store but they can not see my purchase yet. So tomorrow may be better. Here is their number: 1-888-826-8766

      • Mary

        I will, thank you for your help and for all your hard work on your blog.

    I did the catalina deal last week – several times – for the peanut butter: 4 jars x $2.99 – $1 mfc = $7.96 and got $5 catalina. So I paid $0.74 for each jar of peanut butter. Fantastic price for a high quality peanut butter! I’d love to try the egg deal too now.

  • steph

    question- i see people did this for milk as well, do you think we can combine and get some milk and some eggs in the same deal or we have to buy all of the same item?

  • esther

    I got 4 packs of eggs yesterday and the catalina did not print, but I went to customer service and they gave me the $5 catalina there. Great. I’d love to do more on this Smart Balance deal but I’m out of coupons as well as space in my cabinets and fridge! I better go and have some scrambled eggs now. ~grin~

    • esther

      is this egg catalina deal posted in flyer or in store? how do you prove to customer service that there is supposed to be $5 catalina printing? thanks

  • Cindy

    I just got off the phone with catalina marketing regarding my missing catalina and the only info I have is that it went up for review. Not sure where up is but that is where it went. So, unfortunately, I don’t have a definite answer at this time.

  • Danae

    Just bought 4 eggs and did not get a cat. CS gave me $5 cash because they are nice. Its not in the ad as far as I know.

  • steph

    i got the 4 packs of eggs. i used two 50cent printable coupons. coupons had to be manually typed in. it did not recognize the coupons. it did not print the cat. i went to cs and they gave me a cat right away. they were very nice and said sometimes it just doesn’t register. it seems there is a problem with the smartbalance since it did not recognize the coupon or the product to trigger the cat. anyway. i ended up spending $4 and got a $5 cat!
    woohoo!

    also, can someone please please tell me if there is a cat running on the milk as well? or was that a previous week? thanks

    steph

    • Cindy

      The Smart Balance catalina is suppose to be on all Smart Balance products including milk and eggs. But with the eggs not printing I’m not sure about he milk. I can’t recall if someone actually had it print for the milk or not

  • steph

    ok, thanks cindy. then i might round up some coupons for the milk and see. i can always return them if they won’t give me the cat right? thanks!!

  • Jennifer

    I went to ShopRite today in Lawrenceville, NJ, to purchase the eggs. The catalina did not print and normally when this happens Customer Services does give it to me – not today 🙁 . Once they found the note on the catalina (which did not list the products) they insisted eggs were not part of it. My turn to call/email. I would like to hear if others are successful.

    • Cindy

      For me, no response yet, just that it is being review. Some others have already found out that the catalina is shipping. And some others had success at customer service. My shopRite never has the list of catalina deals so that never works for me.

      Side note: Do you live around Lawrenceville. We are looking to move and trying to choose either by the shore or by Lawrenceville area. Hubby works in Princeton. Any great areas. I love cottage style house.

    • lisa

      Oh, that’s weird because that’s the store that I shop at too and they gave me the catalina at Customer Service when it didn’t print at the register. They asked me where I had seen the deal and I told them that I had received one of those printouts with the receipt (the same way a catalina prints), but I did not show it to them because I didn’t have it with me. They looked for the Smart Balance cat deal in a binder, found it, and printed it out for me. I can only assume that had I showed them the ad print out they may not have given it to me. I love this store, but their customer service does not match up the rest of the store (and there is one person in particular that I try to avoid as much as I can). I’m sorry to hear you had a bad trip. Nothing as frustrating as when a deal falls through.

      • Jennifer

        Normally I am very happy with this ShopRite. I have had good luck with the cashiers in the self checkout lanes – very good about all my coupons. I was surprised myself that Customer Service gave me trouble. Maybe I will try them again today and hope for a different employee.

  • Sandy

    Bought the 4 eggs and CAT did not print out for me but customer service did not even question me and gave me the $5 coupon. There is a $5.00 catalina in their binder for Smart Balance but does not list exactly what you have to buy to get that coupon. Internet coupons still not a problem in Branchburg NJ!

    Tried this out last night. Went up to the customer service counter (lucky to have very nice customer service people at the Laurel Springs location)
    I asked them about the catalina, a girl looked it up in their binder and said yes, the catalina was running through the 19th, and yes, the eggs would qualify with the promotion. At check out, the catalina did not print. By this time (late in the evening, customer service closed) I went up to the manager. The manager looked in her binder and said the catalina ended on the 12th. (LOL) I told her I had checked prior to purchase and a half hour prior one of the girls said it didn’t end till 19th. So the manager tooker her binder, scanned the barcode in the book, and out popped a $5 catalina! So as for now, it is still running and glad I got it.

  • Victoria

    I just got off the phone with catalina marketing and they told me the eggs were not part of the cat. I told them that the catalina that alerted me to this catalina did not exclue eggs. He said sorry and that was that!!! I guess I could try customer service at my SR? Thoughts?? You win some and lose some,lol! Can’t complain, I have done so well!

  • staceypunk

    Called my shoprite in Kingston, NY and asked for the “front end”. I asked them to look it up in the catalina binder. The associate said that it is still running. I asked when it expires and she did not know. Looks good for me. I am going tomorrow (friday).

  • hallie wolford

    Got my rain check today from SR of Wayne. I’m hoping this will continue on long enough for them to restock.

  • Lori

    I just heard back from Catalina and they said eggs are NOT part of the Smart Balance deal. The guy wasn’t too friendly when I told him others were either receiving a ‘we’ll look into it’ or getting money back at customer service. He just repeated that eggs are not a part of the deal. So, shop at your own risk. It’s still a good price but I wouldn’t have bought 4 of them!

  • rosanne

    I called catalina marketing at 1-888-322-3814. For some reason, the number Cindy gave did not work for me. I got a representative who looked up my info and said I did not get the cat because eggs are not part of the deal. He said there is nothing I can do. Boohoo.

  • Cristina

    Hi, I purchased the 4 Smart Balance eggs today at Mt Laurel, NJ – called Catalina marketing since no $5 CAT printed. I was told by the CSR that eggs do not qualify. Oh well. Thank you for all you do.

  • rosanne

    Let’s all get together and charter a bus to the catalina home office. We’ll throw eggs at the windows. Omega 3 smart balance eggs!! I, for one, have 4 dozen of them. Just kidding, I think this was actually the fault of shoprite for not including the egg upc number in their promotion. Cant let one wrong deal get you down. Just think of all the great deals we have all gotten!

  • rosanne

    Oh, and we’ll carry picket signs that say “I am EGG-xasperated trying to get my catalina” And ” I only want Egg-xactly what was promised me” OK, I’ll stop now.

  • Stephanie

    Just got my cat in the mail today

  • esther

    man…went to my closest SR, which is still 10 miles away, and they only had 2 milk left…went to the customer service area to ask about the catalina deal, but she said the deal ended on Sat, and doesn’t know about the deal that ends on Monday…so sad
