  • Mel

    I just called to confirm whether it prints on the sale price or regular price.. will find out in morning!

    • Cindy

      Mel, if you called Pathmark they will tell you it works on Sale price. The sale is run through Catalina marketing.

      • Mel

        Called Catalina folks last night and left a message – but no response yet…

  • mel

    Don’t forget the coupons at kraftfoods.com – $1 off 2 bacon, 2 crackers, 2 cheese, and more.

  • Rei

    Do you know if we can roll the $10 CAT and still get another one of we buy another $30 worth pf Kraft goodies? TIA

    • Cindy

      Usually do they roll. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t tell you for sure. I do plan on going later if you want to wait until then. I can let you know.

  • Mel

    Heard back from David at Catalina marketing, who said “We follow what the store does, so your best bet is to ask the store!” Which I guess means sale price? Cindy, let me know if you go..

    • Cindy

      No one will tell you that it works on shelf price however the thing is that most of the sale prices you get at the stores are from using the store loyalty card. Catalina can not assume that everyone will use the store loyalty card so they just take the price that will be consistent across the board. Which, would be the shelf price. Now, Pathmark may mark down the shelf price, like a knock down price during a sale but it’s almost always on that shelf price whether it’s the regular shelf price or a knock down shelf price. I will be going there later and checking it out. Or, possibly someone has already tried and will check in and let us know. I will be sure to post when I test it out later.

  • Rei

    I just got back and it is in fact printing based on shelf price! There is a delay in the CAT printing so make sure the cashier doesn’t start a new transaction right away.

    PS – I didn’t brave rolling it though.

    • Cindy

      Woohoo! Thank you Rei! Super great deals there this week. I love it. Most likely it will roll but I will test that out later.

  • Kate

    Hey Cindy thanks for all of your hard work, I found coupons to contribute to your matchups yay!

    I found a .55/1 Breakstone Sour Cream printable here:
    http://breakstonestriplechurned.com/index.php

    and a 1/1 Kraft Shredded Cheese with Philadelphia here:
    http://brands.kraftfoods.com/naturalcheese/

    Enjoy!!

  • Mel

    This is so great- hope it works for me. Thanks for all your hard work, ladies!

    • Cindy

      Mel just pay close attention to your shelf prices. They do vary so you might have to adjust things while you’re there if your prices are slightly different.

      • mike

        I had gotten 4 kraft shredded cheese w/ a touch of philly, 4 breakstone’s sour cream and 4 cream cheese bricks (shelf price totaled $32.XX) if that helps at all. waited about 30 seconds at the self checkout as well after then transaction completed.

        • Betty

          so, the shredded cheese w/touch of philly is working towards the catalina???

  • Mike

    Did not work for me-at least on shelf price at port Chester ny, so ymmv

    • Cindy

      Mike, me either. I just purchased 4 Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia, 4 Breakstone Sour Cream, 3 Cream Cheese. The store I shopped at had prices that were a little lower then the store I got the prices from so I had to add an extra cream cheese to make the $30 but no cat printed. Machine was working too. I can’t complain, I only paid $5 for all that. But, I am going to call catalina marketing on Monday. Something tells me it might be the Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia because for some reason it was marked at $3.89 shelf price when all the others were marked at $3.99. That is just a guess though.

      • Kate

        Cindy,

        I did almost the same transaction as you, 4 Kraft with philly 4 sour cream, 2 cream cheese and 1 kraft marshmallows (added this because my store too had lower prices – the cheese was 3.89.) I did NOT get the Catalina either! I was so bummed out, and i had really really rude customer service ladies that gave me a hard time about using coupons “and cheating the system” bull… anyways i left my cart there with all my bacon and cream cheese and left the store.

        Maybe it is because of the Kraft w/ philly?… We should try another transaction without the Kraft and see what happens. Post here if you find out.

        P.S I was on single checkout, and also can confirm that th cat machine was working (printed out other things).

        • Kate

          Or maybe by using regular Kraft shredded

          Also the manager showed me their coupon policy and said that Pathmark only takes 2 like Internet Coupons per transaction. This is why I think they had to come over and scan their customer service card and put in half my coupons for me because half started to beep.

          • Cindy

            Yes, some do limit the IP coupons to 2 per transaction. Mine does not. I do try to mix IPs with paper coupons anyway. Looks like our theory of the Kraft w/ touch of Philadelphia is no good. Rei posted that she got a cat with that cheese in the transaction. Hmm, I have no clue what could be causing it not to print. Her first trans printed the cat but the second didn’t. And Mike posted that he had almost the exact same transaction as me and got the cat. A mystery.

            • mike

              sorry if I wasn’t clear. I did not get any cat from the transaction, my comment was a little confusing as I was originally replying to Mel’s first comment about hoping that the deal works, however it did not for me. Will try with nabisco saltines + coupon to test out the shredded cheese w/Philadelphia theory

              • Cindy

                Ah okay, so maybe it really is the Kraft Cheese with the touch of philly. I really have a strong feeling that is what is causing the cat not to print.

      • Rei

        Here’s what I did…
        Store#1
        4 cracker barrel
        4 cream cheese
        2 sour cream
        1 cheese w/ touch of philadelphia
        Paid $9.35 (after coupons)
        Received = $10 CAT

        Store#2
        2 bacon
        2 crackers
        2 cream cheese
        2 polly-o
        -$10 Kraft CAT
        Total = $0.72
        DID NOT receive another CAT

      • mike

        replied to wrong post, so here it goes again…

        I had gotten 4 kraft shredded cheese w/ a touch of philly, 4 breakstone’s sour cream and 4 cream cheese bricks (shelf price totaled $32.XX) if that helps at all. waited about 30 seconds at the self checkout as well after then transaction completed.

        • Cindy

          Hmm, you got the same as me but with an extra cream cheese. I wonder what happened with mine. I waited a while too after the transaction and nothing.

  • Rei

    Ok, so the cheese with touch of philly can be one of the culprits…it didn’t effect my first transaction b/c I had well over $30 without it. But I didn’t have it in trans #2 so either there’s another item that’s preventing the CAT from printing or it’s not rolling.

  • Mel

    Mike — So your transaction did eventually go through?

  • Kate

    It looks like Rei’s transaction was at $30.00 before the Kraft shredded w/ philly…. so it could still be the culprit?

    • Cindy

      Yes, but Mike had the Kraft and he got it. His transaction was almost the same as mine but he had 1 more cream cheese then I did.

  • http://www.ihadacoupon.com Dana

    Just wanted to mention that at my Pathmark the shelf price of the Ricotta cheese is $7.19 (with a sale price of $2-when you buy 2)…makes for free ricotta cheese:
    4 Ricotta $28.76 shelf
    1 Mac & Cheese $1.39 shelf
    Shelf Total $30.15
    Sale Total $9
    Get Back $10
    fyi..I haven’t done this yet because I already had a cart full of coffee, garlic triscuits, and various cheese products!

  • Bree

    Just got back – my catalina DID NOT print!

    • Cindy

      Bree, what did you get? Did it include the Kraft Cheese Touch of Philly?

      • Bree

        No – it was regular shredded

  • mel

    Hi there – I just got 4 bacons, 4 Cracker Barrels (shelf total more than $30, even with bacon’s shelf price at $3.19) and no Catalina. This was my first Catalina, so I wanted to ask – does Pathmark USUALLY do the shelf price? Thanks! Feeling discouraged.

    • Cindy

      Yes they usually do it on shelf price. Dont be discouraged. There are sooo many awesome deals to be had. We are going to either have to do this on sale price or wait until some of us find out whats going on after we get info from catalina marketing.

    • Diane R

      Mel, that shelf price of $3.19 for Oscar Mayer bacon sounds REALLY low. I know that in my PM, it is normally in the $4.99 price range. Can you check to see exactly what variety of OM bacon you bought and the weight on the package? I’m just asking because the $3.19 shelf price sounds like it might possibly be for the 8oz. size, not the 16oz size that is what is advertised for the deal. I was planning on going to PM tomorrow for OM bacon and Maxwell House coffee, but if the deal isn’t working maybe I won’t buy as much as I had planned on buying. Sorry you didn’t get your CAT . That’s disappointing :(

      • mel

        Hi—It was the turkey bacon, 12 oz. Darn – so maybe that’s why? I figured it was still Oscar Meyer bacon.. I’ll have to study my circular! Hopefully Catalina Marketing will change their minds and give us the $10.. I did spend over $30 in shelf price..

        • Diane R

          Mel, I definately think that the bacon is where your deal went wrong. I’m pretty sure that the ones for this deal are the 12oz. center cut or 16oz. ‘regular’ bacon that are normally about $5.00 a package, not the turkey bacon. I think that’s considered a different product. You can always return your bacon and cracker barrels to the store and tell them you bought the wrong items. Then you can buy the right ones to get your CAT.

  • Cindy

    I am going back tomorrow and trying this deal without any Kraft cheese and see how it goes. I’ll let you guys know how I made out.

  • mel

    You guys rock. Thank you for all your hard work!

  • Kate

    Thanks Cindy, let us know! Fingers crossed for ya :)

  • Lauren B.

    NO Cat:
    2 OM bacon (not turkey)
    4 Philly cream cheese
    1 maxwell house
    2 Cracker Barrel Cheese

    =(

  • Jim

    Here is what I did:

    2 Lower SOdium Bacon
    1 Center Cut Bacon
    1 Hearty Cut Bacon
    2 Italy Shred bonus bags – not touch of philly
    3 coupons

    No Catalina

    For those that did not get it, did you use self-checkout or regular register? I have noticed different coupon logic in the self checkouts versus regular registers – so I wonder if that has something to do with it.

    • Cindy

      I did self checkout

  • Lauren

    i went to a regular register, only had 1 coupon, for the coffee.

  • Diane R

    With so many people not getting a CAT maybe it’s not working on shelf prices after all. Has anyone spent over $30 in SALE prices and still not received a CAT?

    • Cindy

      Diane, some people have received it based on shelf price. That’s whats so confusing. Someone emailed me that they bought 8 of the Kraft Regular Cheese ($3.99 shelf) $2.00 and received the catalina. So, it’s a bit of a mystery right now.

      • Diane R

        That’s great to know that it actually is working on shelf prices! Now if we could only figure out why so many aren’t getting their CATs. I really love it when someone posts exactly what product, size and flavor they bought when they actually got a CAT , so we can all try to narrow down where the problems might be for those who didn’t get their CAT. I’m sure by Thursday we’ll have it all figured out!

  • Lori

    This worked:
    10 boxes of Wheat thins–both ranch and regular
    Got the Cat. (could have gotten 9 boxes but got 10 so I could use Q)

    2-coffee
    4-sour creams
    2 shredded cheese –Not touch of philly
    2 wheat thins
    Got the Cat.

  • mel

    I did self-checkout too.. interesting theory.

  • Karen

    My sister and I have done numerous transactions since Friday. The transactions that did NOT produce a cat (going by shelf price) either involved Philly cream cheese or a “limited edition” special Cracker Barrel cheese (in a silver wrapper).

    I have a theory that the Philly is counted at $1.25 (note in the small print of the ad–limit 5, additional will scan at $1.25), similar to Acme’s KnockDown pricing.

    I also think that one Cracker Barrel cheese isn’t programmed for the cat deal, as it’s not a usual product. This could be the case for the cheese w/ Touch of Philly. Bonus bags of shredded cheese may also not be programmed for the deal. You’d need to check the UPC of the bonus bag against the UPC of the regular size bag for that cheese variety.

    • Cindy

      Awesome info Karen! Thanks so much.

    • Rei

      Hmmm…I got the CAT with my purchase of the cream cheese & limited edition cracker barrel.

    • ethel

      I wish I read your comment before going there..I bought one of the “limited edition” special Cracker Barrel cheese and did not get a cat :(

  • Karen

    (forgot to add)

    The cats are rolling nicely for both of us—-as long as we stick with OM bacon (thick cut and regular) and “normal” cheese varieties of Cracker Barrel and shredded. I will do a few transactions involving nuts later this week.

  • Purvi

    I shop at Pathmark in Parsippany and I went to try out Kraft catalina and it worked for me on shelf price. I think I bought way over required amount but I needed those things anyway. What a great deal! Bought following items. I am including shelf prices.

    Two Shredded Cheese (one was natural cheese (this one even had 20% more..whohoo!!) priced at 3.99 and one was mozerella with touch of philly priced at 3.89)

    Two be cool Whip @ 1.79

    Three Beakstone sour cream @ 2.49

    Two Ritz crackers @ 3.79

    Two wheat thins @3.99

    Two Phi cream cheese @2.19

    I also bought few other things I needed. Two pampers baby wipes, two gerber graudate snacks, three gerber baby food bottles, ortega sauce. In total paid $15.83 in total and got back $10 in catalina. Hope they are rolling. I am going to try again tomorrow and will let you know.

    Thank you Cindy for such great matchups.

    • Karen

      I calculated your shelf to be $38.87 so you did overbuy. If one of your items wasn’t programmed for the deal, you were still covered :) Sometimes I overbuy just because I need the stuff and I don’t want to make yet-another trip to the store!

  • Rei

    Anyone get a CAT with the Polly-o Ricotta?

    • http://www.ihadacoupon.com Dana

      Yes…I bought:
      2 Ricotta shelf $7.19 each…$14.38
      1 Cracker Barrel $5.09
      1 Ritz Crackers $3.79
      2 Shredded Cheese-Baby Swiss & Mild Cheddar $3.99 each…$7.98
      Total Shelf $31.24
      Total Sale: $11.98
      Used $10 cat and got a $10 cat

      *When you by the ricotta you must buy 2 to get the $2 sale price

      • Rei

        Thanks Dana!

  • Lana

    I bought 5 pks of bacon with shelf price of $6.25 and no cat

    • Diane R

      Lana, could you please let us know exactly what variety of OM bacon you bought? (center cut, hearty, thick, low sodium, etc.) That might help us narrow down which varieties don’t seem to be working.

  • Cara

    2 OM low salt bacon $6.49
    2 Cracker Barrel regular $5.09
    2 Nabisco Wheat Thins $3.99

    NO CAT (Rec’d a $10.00 Cat for Fashion Bug !!!)

    Called Catalina and they will send my request for processing and I should hear in 4-6 weeks. I was hoping to go back and try and roll the first cat but I’m reluctant to purchase the other items because if it fails again I’m not sure how the Catalina customer service company would be to a second request over the phone. Has anyone tried this successfully?

  • Jim

    Well, for 2 of us it seems it could be the lower sodium bacon could be the culprit.

  • megh

    got four Ricotta shelf $7.39 (2 for $4)
    one chips ahoy shelf $3.79($1.99)
    paid around $4.20 after using one of $5 cat from gift card promo and got $10 oyno.any idea how to use all the Ricotta .

    • Stephanie M.

      Today I bought:

      2x Polly-O Ricotta Cheese (Regular) $7.15
      2x Cracker Barrel Cheese (Baby Swiss) $5.09
      2x Kraft Natural Mild Cheddar 2% $3.99
      used $1/2 cracker barrel printable, $1/2 Kraft Cheese q
      paid $10 got back $10, and then I rolled the cat and got another $10!!

      After reading through all the posts it seems as if the Kraft cheese with a touch of philly, and possible philly cream cheese is not working. I tried on Friday and my transaction did not produce a cat. I got:

      2x Kraft Cheese Mild Cheddar $3.99
      2x Kraft Mozzarella with a touch of philly $3.99
      5x Philly Cream Cheese $2.29
      1x Ritz Cracker $3.79

      Did not produce a cat.

    • Cindy

      Make lots of Lasagna & Baked Zitti. Or try a nice New York Italian Cheese Cake. Yum.

  • Lucy

    I bought $30 worth but not on shelf price, I needed the stuff anyways and with coupons was really cheap :)

    4 Breakstone sour creams .99c —–4 (.50/1Q) Free
    2 cream cheese .88c ($1/2 Q)
    2 Ricotta Polly-O @ 2x$4
    2 Mozarella @ 2x$4
    2 Kraft macaroni cheese $1 ($.50/2 )
    5 Kraft w/ touch of Philadelphia shredded $2 (5- $1/1 Q)
    2 Oscar Mayer regular bacon $2.49 (2 -$1/2 Q)

    Paid $18.86 and got my $10 cat
    I didn’t dare to do the shelf price since I needed all this stuff and only had today to go grocery shopping.

  • Lana

    Sorry. It was the lower sodium bacon that I bought without getting the cat. Great deal even without coupons, but the cat would have been nice. I have never had luck with contacting catalina.

  • Paola

    Thanks so much for all the info, I got my $10 cat
    Today i bought:
    2 triscuit crackers (used $1/2 coupon)
    2 cracker barrel chedder cheeses (used $1/2 coupon)
    1 mozzarella polly-o (needed before they ran out)
    1 ricotta (needed before they ran out)
    1 sour cream (used .55 coupon)
    2 regular Oscar mayer bacon (used $1/2 coupon)

    Quick question, if i do the same as above, but also purchase the cream cheese in the same transaction, will i still be able to roll the cat??

    • Karen

      I’ve been doing identical transactions to roll my cats (either 6 Cracker Barrel or 4 regular or thick OM bacon + 1 Cracker Barrel). You’ll be fine rolling with the items listed from your previous transaction PLUS the cream cheese. I wouldn’t try to substitute the cream cheese for something else, kwim?

      • Paola

        gotcha…thank you, now to make a trip to Pathmark tomorrow =)

      • Chris

        Karen, can you please provide the UPC code on the bacon that produced your cat. I tried to buy the reg. bacon and it did not provide me with a cat. Thanks.

  • amanda

    after coupon 8.92

    cat did not print.
    return the second transaction and got back my coupons. will try purchasing a deal that worked from you guys/gals and see if it will print a cat.

    • Diane R

      Amanda, which varieties/flavors of the OM bacon and Cracker Barrel did you purchase?

      • amanda

        i had reg(1st trans) and thick cut (2nd trans)bacon. and the sliced cracker barrel cheese

        • Diane R

          sliced cracker barrel? do you mean the cheese sticks that come 8 to a package? I’m trying to find out if anyone had luck buying bars of the Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar in the red wrapper. Anyone?

          • http://www.ihadacoupon.com Dana

            Yes I have successfully bought 3 bars of Cracker Barrel:
            Extra Sharp Cheddar- the orange colored cheese
            Extra Sharp-White with 2% Milk-white colored cheddar cheese
            Baby Swiss
            These were all in transactions done on shelf prices.

            Other items that worked were ritz crackers (regular kind), Maxwell house coffee, ricotta, mac & cheese (the microwave cup kind), triscuits (Garlic) & Shredded Cheese-Baby Swiss & Mild Cheddar

          • Rei

            YES – the x-sharp (red wrapper) worked.

          • Jim

            There is the pre-wrapped snack CB and pre-sliced cracker sized. Both are rining $1.99 – but unsure if either qualified for Cat. Last time around the pre-wrapped snack size did (I had the $5 off 5 so they were free).

            • Diane R

              Hi Jim, yes I saw those cracker barrel slices in PM today. Had never seen them before! I would have loved to have tried them, but since Amanda didn’t have luck with them working for the deal, I decided not to try.

              Dana & Rei, thanks for answering my question. The X-tra sharp is my favorite! Bought 3 of them today!!

    2 Cool Whip extra creamy shelf $1.99
    Total Shelf $32.43
    Total Sale $12.93
    Used 4 coupons
    Total OOP $8.94
    Catalina did NOT print

    I didn’t know why I didn’t get my CAT. I thought maybe it had to do with the Cool Whip(?). So I returned the items & got my coupons back. The customer service lady was very nice about it. So no harm, no foul. I decided to try again.

    Transaction #2
    4 Maxwell House coffee original. shelf $4.39
    3 Cracker Barrel X-tra Sharp red wrapper shelf $5.09
    1 Cracker Barrel Limited Edition shelf $5.09
    Total Shelf $37.94
    Total Sale $17.96
    Used 6 coupons
    Total OOP $11.96
    SUCCESS! Catalina DID print!

    So I decided to press my luck….

    Transaction #3
    4 Oscar Mayer Bacon regular slice variety – shelf $6.49
    1 Breakstone sour cream shelf $2.49
    2 Polly-0 whole milk ricotta 32oz. shelf $7.39
    2 Kraft shredded with touch of philly shelf $3.89 (I didn’t need this for the deal, but I wanted them anyway)
    Total Shelf $51.01
    Total Sale $18.95
    Used 5 coupons and $10 Cat from transaction #2
    Total OOP $3.96
    Catalina did NOT print

    I know that many of you are successfully rolling this cat, so me using the cat on transaction #3 shouldn’t have made it not work (at least I don’t think so). I was bummed out. I have called Catalina and gave them all the info, and they said if I qualify they will send me the $10 coupon, but I think when they see that I used a $10 catalina on this transaction, they might disqualify me since in the circular it does say in small print “limit one offer per shopping family” (even though it has been successfully rolling for others)

    All in all, I’m happy to have gotten the one CAT, but it would have been nice to have gotten 2 or 3 of them since I did buy the products. But the products were all at such good prices that I would have bought them anyway (except probably for the 2 ricotta, but they’ll definately get used!)

    This deal has certainly not been an easy one!

    Thanks for all your help and good luck with your transactions!!

      seems like the OM bacon could be the culprit too. reading through most of the post, i notice that whenever there’s a bacon mentioned, no cat printed. this was my case last night. i will try it again tonight without the bacon.

      • Pamela K

        Yup. I believe its the OM bacon too.

        • Rei

          It’s the Bacon. Catalina Marketing emailed me back and said that my bacon purchase was not included in the promo.

          The Philly Cream Cheese is working according to CM!

          • Cindy

            How interesting. I didn’t buy the bacon on my first trip so I still am confused about that. Great info Rei thanks!

            • Rei

              Cindy – Didn’t you also purchase the Kraft Shredded w a touch of Philly in your first transaction? I think those are not included in the promo.

              • Cindy

                Yes I did but I want more of them and don’t mind that I might not get the catalina. I’ll only wind up paying around $1 so it’s worth it to me.

        • Diane R.

          IT DEFINATELY IS THE BACON! Ok, I just heard back from David at Catalina Marketing. He said the only products on my receipt that qualified for the offer only totalled $17.27 and not $30. The 2 products that he said qualified were the 2 Polly O ricottas and the Breakstone sour cream. I pointed out to him that I had 4 OM bacons. He said they didn’t have the UPC for the regular OM bacon listed, so there was nothing they could do for me. (also, the Kraft shredded mozzarella with a Touch of Philly was not on their list, but we had all kind of figured that out early on). I asked him if they had any OM bacons on their list and he said yes, but the UPC for the regular wasn’t among them. SO DON’T BUY OM BACON WITH UPC OF 0 44700 01988 7. I did tell him that this was the bacon in the circular and also the “buy $30 get $10″ ad was right on the shelf label for this particular variety, but he basically told me “too bad”. He told me to take it up with customer service at the store, but of course if I tried to do that they would say that they go by sale price and not shelf price. So no CAT for that transaction :(

  • KC

    I purchased:
    1 OM Deli Fresh
    2 OM Bacon – Regular
    1 Chips Ahoy
    2 Maxwell House Coffee
    2 Cool Whip
    Shelf = $33.82 – NO CAT – I want to scream!

    • KC

      Also, I used the Chips Ahoy facebook coupon when you buy milk and combined that with the Pillsbury deal to get free milk and got a $1 Catalina from Pillsbury

  • Renee

    Just got back and this deal worked for me.
    1 Polly-O ricotta, 1 Polly-O mozzarella, 4 Cracker barrel blocks, 1 Triscuit, 1 Ritz, 1 Breakstone sour cream.
    used, 4 $1/1 cracker barrel
    1 $1/2 Nabisco
    1 $.55 Breakstone
    1 $1.00 Polly-O (happend to be in my newspaper this morning)
    Paid about $10.00 and received the $10 catalina

  • Ted

    For the Pillsbury deal do you have to buy the milk in the same transaction, or does it spit out a coupon for you later?

    • kc

      It came off in the same transaction

  • irishsaver

    • Lucy

      The cracker barrel for my 1st transaction was supposed to be “1″ not “15″

  • Jim

    I understand that we are all frustrated – but keep in mind that we are all trying to get this based off shelf prices and not actual sale prices – which, I am willing to be, is the intenetion of the program. We may have lucked out getting it based on shelf – but I think the true promo is supposed to be based on sales price. Think what would happen if they just reduced the price and did not use the card.

    • Cindy

      Jim, they are always on shelf price because the pre-card price, or the retail price, is the only price that Catalina Marketing goes by. These sales are actually run between the manufacturer, which in this case is Kraft, and catalina marketing. Actually, Pathmark, has nothing to do with the promotion except that they promote it in their store. Which is why, when you contact Catalina marketing, they are the ones that can see it. Stores like Acme, and sometimes Pathmark, will reduce the shelf price during these sales and call them Knockdown prices. They do this to eliminate some items that they do not want flying off the shelves.

  • amanda

    going for round three tonight hopefully i could roll it coz planning to give them out to my inlaws. deff no bacon this time.
