    If anyone has any more ideas for the 25 gift card I would love to hear them. I like the one above but don’t like yogurt. I also need some olive oil and my husband drinks soda so maybe I can do that but I could always use the help. I still consider myself green when it comes to coupons and have trouble figuring out the best deals.

    • Erin

      I have in my shop rite special insert (we have a new shop rite in town- don’t know if thats why I have it) a 4/$10 coke coupon! My husband is a huge diet coke drinker. Check your paper tomorrow!!

        • angela

          wait…… so how do you guys know when the catalina prints? And for how much? Is there like a catalina site to check out what things to buy to get one to print out… confused..

        • mary

          Annon

          Did that work? Is is based on shelf price?
          Thanks

  • Denise

    I want to really stock up on the Solo plates. I will make several trips to use up the coupons I have. Will the catalina re-print on several trips or is it one to a customer?

    • Elaine

      I did it 3 times this week before I knew about the 1/2 price this week. (all were the same card, but different transactions.)

    • Janelle S

      It should print…..I did the deal multiple times last week using the same card and it printed…..I even used the catalinas to purchase the next orders Solo products

      • Leslie

        I made 3 trips and the catalinas printed each time. I purchased only cups because I donated all the packages to the church I go to for their coffee/fellowship hour. Even without coupons I am still going to purchase the paper plates on Sunday. After the catalina each package comes to .34 cents. It is still a great deal.

        • Palomita

          OMG! Had the worst experience with the Solo deal. Was accused of printing the same coupon even though all were different. Also, got yelled at by the self-checkout cashier person for bringing free stuff into the lane (that they had to adjust)!

          I ended up getting them and the CAT for $8. This is the last time I shop for free without my husband though. LOL. I’m bringing him next time for support!

    • Alison

      I want to stock up on deals like this all the time and they NEVER seem to have them in stock……EVER!

      • Ange

        I went to a bunch of Shoprites today and they had plenty. The shelves were empty, but there were displays of them in the main aisles kind of near where the meats/dairy are located.

    • Ange

      It reprinted!! I stocked up on plates for our holiday get togethers!!

  • Christina

    It looks like the Marcal coupon on facebook for the napkins is $1 off 2 napkins.

    • Matthew F.

      Yup $1/2. Still a good deal?..or not really..?…

      • Laura D.

        $0.89 each is still a good deal!

  • Leah

    What about the huggies diapers? Perhaps someone can tell me otherwise, but I haven’t found any place where I can get diapers cheaper than amazon, even with coupons/sales. I’m an “old” amazon mom members, so I still get the 30% off. Does anyone have suggestions for getting a better deal (if that’s possible)?

    • jeff

      Babies r us sometimes has sales….a while back they had $12 packs on sale for $5, no limit. I had a bunch of $3 and 1.50 coupons and wound up w @ $140 worth of diapers for @ $30

      • Monique

        I make a killing with cvs

        • Kelley

          I need to start finding better deals on diapers too! Babies r us actually just had a sale on black friday a box of babies r us brand diapers for $10 and a box of babies r us wipes for $5!

          • Jean

            @ Kelley…they’ve been having that black friday sale for atleast 6 years (my oldest is 6, so maybe even before that). When my kids were in diapers I used to wait for that sale and stock up like crazy! That was also before I discovered coupons!

      • Eileen @QponPrincess

        I get most of my diapers at CVS, I stock up on the $3/1 little movers slip on Q’s when they come out, then wait for a decent price on the “jumbo” pack, and stock up, they have a buy 6 packs get the 7th pack free promo running for months now, I have so many diapers, in the size she is in AND the next size up, I had to stop buying incase she finishes potty training before I use them all…
        the cheapest I have gotten the jumbo pack for (aside from the free packs with the cvs promo -which btw is a cvs Q that prints at the red machine so you can still use a MFQ and as long as you have another item in the cart you can use up the overage) was $2.99 (on sale ofr $6.99 and using a cvs $1 off and the $3/1 mfq together) jumbo packs vary in diaper count depending on the size but for my little one the size 5 are 20-23ct (20 for slip on, 23 for reg) so at $2.99 its $0.15 per diaper
        you can usually get a raincheck when the price is good, often they will run out of a size, then use the raincheck when the next high value coupon comes out

    • chris

      When i was buying diapers i would write kimberly clark info on huggies package or website….good or bad comments usually got me a bunch of coupons! Good luck

  • dawn

    There is a .50 or a $1 off Palmolive Utra coupon. making this free!!!!

    • Apryl

      where is the coupon from

      • Michelle T.

        My Palmolive Ultra coupon is a DND9 🙁

    • Kabby

      WHERE?

      • savingmomof3

        My .50 palmolive coupon is for the larger size which isn’t on sale, the smaller size is.

  • Arizia

    Thanks for the list Cindy, what is everyone thinking of buying with the 25 (since it has to be Holiday gifts, toys, appliance or batteries) I’m thinking batteries right now 🙂

    • Jessie

      Staples frequently has 100% back in Staples rewards on batteries, if you have a reward card with them and will use the rewards later for something else. I find that’s the best way to stock up on AA & AAA, since the sale is usually on the huge packs, and then I use the rewards on ink to print my coupons.

      • Lady J

        I’m always interested in this, but have never tried it. How do Staples Rewards work. I’ve done the Easy Rebates with no problem. I have never had an issue getting my money. So, I think it will be okay. Just not sure how it works.

        • Dessa

          they just did this deal at staples on black friday with a limit of 2. So of course I got 2 🙂

          The way Staples Rewards works is that they track you with your card, just like shoprite family rewards.
          Then, on/about the 15th of the month you get your rewards online in your account for the previous month. You can print them and spend them like cash in store or use them online 🙂
          Very easy.

          • Lady J

            they are running this battery deal again this week. I need to pick up some batteries, and do some ink recycling (ad said $4 per ink instead of the regular $2) so I’ll go.

  • lkr

    is the crystal light for 2.99 for the 12 quarts mix? and is it part of the deal for 5.00 back?

    • Pamela

      Should be the little to go packets or whatever they call them. Regular price for those is 2.99 (we go through tons)

  • william butler

    I just got my $5.00 bounty coupon in the mail.. yea

    • ashley

      me too!!

  • Nicole

    Has it been confirmed that a $10 cat will print if you buy 4 Pantene’s & use 2 $3/2 coupons?

    • KitKat

      I wanted to do this deal too, but worried whether the CAT will print. Any feedback would be awesome…

      • Anonymous

        gonna go try it now. will be back in about an hour or so and as soon as i get back i will let you know if it works or not. have to get 2 sunday papers first lol.

        • Anonymous

                  • Alison

                    It worked in Clinton CT for me! I rolled it twice. We do not need shampoo for a long long time. The bottles are huge!

      • wendy nastasi

        I just went to Shop rite for the pantene cat deal. The sales price of $3.99 is coming up without the price plus card, so buying 4 didnt work. you actually have to buy an addtional two plus something small to get the cat. I just got one more pantene because I had another $1.00 off coupon. That came to 27.93 before coupons. I used 3 $3 off 2 coupons and 1 $1 off one, so It came to $20.93 and got the $10 catalina. Comes out to 1.56 each. Still a good deal.

      • Jacki

        I tried to do the Pantene deal and the cat didn’t print out. The manager told me to buy $25. worth of the sale price. So I returned the Pantenes and took my coups back.

    • Lisa

      It did NOT work for me in Southbury, CT.

      • Arizia

        Has the pantene deal worked in DE?

      • spyguy

        me neither in southington CT

    • Leslie

      I did both of Cindy’s deals, the 4 pantene and the 6 old spice body wash plus one crest. Both deals worked and printed the $10 cats. I did two separate transactions but combined each transaction with the solo catalina on sunday. The cashier was amazed, in fact she was so amazed when I received $14 in cats she said words I cannot repeat on this site.

  • Liz

    Does any one know if any shoprite, but especially the ones in staten island, allow overages?

    • Michelle T.

      ShopRite normally does not give overage. I have had overage only on the very few occasions that I had a paper coupon and a digital coupon that totalled over the item’s. Their coupon policy actually states that they will give you a coupons value (or doubled value) only up to the item’s price.

      • Eileen @QponPrincess

        I am also in NJ, and my shoprite DOES adjust down coupons over the face value= NO overage, the only odd times an overage happens is if there is a problem scanning the coupon and they have to manually input it, because sometimes when they put it in manually, they put it under some generic coupon and it doesnt actually connect to a specific item. if it scans properly and is more than the value of the item it beeps and they adjust it, if it is a doubling coupon it automatically doubles up to the value of the item..no overage, but free is free so no complaining here, when I want overage I go to walmart…

    • Nikita

      I live in NJ so this is what my SR does…if the coupon is more than the item and you have other items, yes they do give you the overage, they don’t adjust the coupon down, but if the coupon is being doubled, the computer will automatically adjust it down to make it free but not overage. We bought the degree deoderant a while back for $.98 with a $1/1 coupon. They did not beep and we got $.02 overage on each one that just came off the rest of our order (we bought a lot) I would check with your SR though, we’ve made friends with our manager Colleen and she is awesome with questions, we show her what we want to do and she’ll let us know if it’ll fly or not!

      • Liz

        Thanks so much ladies. I’m going to give it a test run with a small purchase and some small overages and see what happens. Only way to find out for sure really. But hopefully Nikita my store will be like yours. If it is then that’s a big plus for me =)

    • Johanna

      I live in Staten Island and go to the ShopRite on Rishmond Ave, They don’t give overage….the few times that I did get overage were when I purchased an item for $0.99 and used a $1.00 coupon it gives you the extra $0.01 other then that I have never gotten overage there…..but at my Pathmark on Forest Ave if you scan an item and then have them take it off the coupon still scans……I didn’t realize this until after I had paid and was in the car but I did return later and explained it to customer service ( they found the coupon and returned it to me and I paid the extra dollar that it took off

    • Lisa

      Liz,
      The Staten Island shoprites will only double up to the price of the item..no overages… So if an item is $1.00 and you have a $0.75 coupon…the coupon will not double to $1.50 it will only take off $1.00

  • Cathy

    Could anyone please provide the details for the Gift card promotion, “Get $20 wyb $100 in gift gards” from Macys, Master Card, Lowes.
    What page is this on in the ad? Is it a limit of one per family? I can’t find it!!
    Thanks!

    • Claire

      It’s on page 4 at the bottom. Be careful everyone if you do your weekly shopping on Sunday! The $20 will only appear on your receipt from the 5th – 10th so it excludes Sunday the 4th.

    • Kathie

      It says in the fine print that it is one per family. I’m guessing since it will automatically go to your PP Card, that you will only be able to do one transaction, but, I could be wrong.

      • RC

        can you get a mastercard and use it on your groceries same day? so the 20 can only be used that next week? thanks

        • mike

          just be advised that the mastercard gift card has a $5 activation fee per card. Hopefully you can find 1 $100 card so you only have to pay 1 $5 fee. I was able to find 2 $50 so i will end up making $10 ($20 – $10 in fees)

          • Arizia

            does this happen with the gift cards at Pathmark too?

    • Lady J

      I’ve been so busy this week that I haven’t had a chance to look at the ad. Does anyone know if this gift card offer only includes the 4 or 5 cards that Cindy listed in the matchup? Or, does it include other cards as well?

      • Anonymous

        I asked at customer service and they looked it up it a book. It includes the 4 Cindy mentioned and i-tunes.

    • robin

      I did this deal this morning, but I don’t like that there is no indication that you will get the $20. there is no printout at the bottom of the receipt or anything, you just have to trust that the $20 has been added to you card. Anyone know a way to verify that the $20 will be there?

  • Claire

    Hi Cindy – great matchups! Thanks as always.

    Barber Chicken Q from 10/16 SS expires today. 🙁

    • Cindy

      Oh poo. Okay, I’ll fix that. Thanks for the heads up.

    • Melissa

      My Shoprite will take expired coupons up to 1 Month. Maybe yours will too and you can still get the deal.

      • Laura D.

        Please Tell…… which Shoprite is this?!?!

        • Melissa

          Ellenville, NY

          • Kaylee

            They are only supposed to accept expired mfr coupons for up to one week.

            • Meli

              Hmm i herd 14 days. this would be great !!

  • chris

    thank you!

  • Kyle

    I wish the internet coupons would reset faster! I couldn’t print the Langers coupon, Wafflebakers, or Marcal. BOO!

  • Annie

    Do you think there’s a limit to the buy $25 get $10 CAT deal?

  • kmegg

    any more details on the Holiday Gift Giving Rewards ? what items are included to get the rewards ? i am looking to buy an ipod for my son & wondering if its one of the items that gets the rewards.

    • kmegg

      der-i totally misunderstood the promo when i heard about it last week. grrrrr.

  • Paloma

    Anyone see the spam coupon? Is there a zip code I need to plug in? 😡

    • Paloma

      Nevermind 😉 I put my glasses on!

  • Vanessa

    Not sure if it’s just me or if I’m simply tired of shopping and clipping, but it seems like a very slow SR week. I’ll go in for the Pantene and Solo plates, and get the (ewwwww…..) Spam for the food bank, but other than that, I don’t see anything great for me.

    Thank you Cindy– I SOOOOOO appreciate all that you do here! You are my go-to-deal blog!!

    • Julie

      I am in the same boat right now. I promised myself that I would ONLY buy the items we “need right now” or items are free or just too cheap to walk away from. We are going to live off of the stockpile for a while. I just can’t do it right now! I’ve lost the deal-seeking-drive. 🙂

  • Karen

    As always, thanks for the match ups! Just wondering if anyone has noticed that Shop Rite is getting tougher on coupons. Any time I present with coupons the cashier immediately calls the Front End Manager to come and verify them which can take an additional 5 minutes. It can become frustrating when their are others in line behind you. Anyone else experiencing this? Today (after the third time the manager had been called on me) I questioned the cashier and he told me they started this because people are photocopying coupons.

    • Pamela

      They don’t call over a manager, but they do look through each of my coupons before they start scanning my items. Several cashiers have told me they are getting LOTS of counterfeits and that’s why they’re doing it, so really I don’t blame them. I do tend to apologize to the people behind me, then I see them watching the total go down when the cashier finally scans my coupons lol

    • Lady J

      I notice it’s the new cashiers that do this. For a while, the new ones were wearing red name tags – but now, they aren’t doing that anymore. The other day I had a new cashier argue with a manager that I should not be allowed to use the Nabisco $1 off cookies and milk q with the Free milk catalina. The manager had no problem with it and was even explaining why I could do it, and the cashier was telling her boss that it wasn’t right that the store was letting me get the item for free and them some. The manager again said it was fine. Then the cashier wanted to adjust the price of the Free Milk q to account for the $1 q. I know people want to protect their jobs, but if you argue with your manager over something like this – you aren’t doing yourself any favors either.

      Look for a cashier that knows their q’s and go to them.

      When I have a lot of q’s, I let whoever gets in line behind me know. Sometimes they go to a different line; sometimes they don’t.

      • Susie

        My cashier yesterday said the store has become stricter with their coupon policies.

      • Julie

        I was told that they are now “auditing” any transaction that has more than $10 savings in coupons and that they can “track you down by your price plus card info to catch the perpitrators” DANG!

        • Eileen @QponPrincess

          as long as you are not commiting fraud (ie copying coupons etc…) you have NOTHING to worry about, let them audit me, whatever…and the whatever is to the process not to you dear for your post

        • Colleen

          When I went to use my $10 cat from Pantene deal on my next transaction, the front end guy at self-checkout had to do something to make it go through, enter some code or swipe his badge at the scannter, so I think it’s automatic in their registers. He was super nice and helpful with my stuff, though, so I didn’t mind. 🙂

  • Spam Can

    the ad says spam singles.

    the coupon that i can print says 12 oz can

    I believe these are different

    • Debbie

      I used the spam coupon on the singles and it worked.

  • Andrea

    Just got a Shop Rite flyer in the mail today that says they will TRIPLE coupons up to $.50 next Wednesday thru Saturday (at least at my Shop Rite in Glen Burnie, MD).

    • Nancy

      Woohoo! Thanks for the update! Looking forward to great savings! Worth the trip.

    • ashley

      i went this morning to the glen burnie store and asked the front desk, they said they were starting this morning and mine tripled!

      • Jane

        Thanks for the heads up. 🙂

    • Thanks! That’s my store 🙂

  • Alicia

    I don’t see the $0.55 coupon for the Hormel Kids Compleats Microwave Meals in the 11/06/11 SS, there is $1/2 Hormel Compleats Microwave Meals and $1/2 Hormel Compleats Kids Microwave Meals… 🙁

    • coupons are some times regional. Your paper may have a $1/2 but others may be a $0.55/1. I know sometimes my coupons on Saturday differ from my coupons in another paper on sunday.

    • Kelly

      Coupons are regional so sometimes the values don’t match.

  • Lori

    Good morning, has anyone tried the solo deal yet?

    • Kathie

      I did this morning. Went to 2 different SRs and rolled the cat 5 times.

      • bobbi

        i just got back from shoprite…solo deal is working.

    • Debbie

      I did it twice this morning. Two seperate orders and it worked!

      • Alicia

        I just tried it at the Manchester CT shoprite and nothing…now i have to email cat marketing i guess! they were also out of just about all solo, but had TONS of the hefty foam plates. so many in fact that it seems totally intentional.

        i’m mad at myself for not going last week bc we need paper plates! all i got was one package of bowls and paper cups.

        • Lori

          Alicia, Did you try the Pantene deal in Manchester or just the Solo? Also, you may want to double check the Stop & Shop flyer if you need paper goods. I can’t remember if they’re still having a sale on Solo, but I know they had the cat there (I got one last week). Their deal wasn’t a MM, but I did get the cups free, so maybe you can pick up a deal there?

          • Sam

            Shelton, CT ……… Solo deal worked. Gd luck!

          • Lisa

            The Pantene deal did NOT work for me in Southbury, CT but the Solo deal did.

  • Kristen

    anyone try the pantene deal yet?

    • The Pantene deal did NOT print out a catalina for me in South Jersey. There were hardly any bottles of shampoo left but lots of conditioner. When the catalina did not print, I went to Customer Service. I was told the catalina was based on the after sale price, not the pre-price plus amount.

      • Karen can I ask where in SJ you are? I am hoping to try the deal bc some have said it works – I will go to the Berlin or Marlton SR. Thanks!

        • I went to the Glassboro SR. Would love to know if this worked anywhere in South Jersey–Woodbury, Laurel Springs, Bottino’s SR in Washington Twp??

      • christine

        They always say that the catalina is after sales price. It gets me so frustrated when I know that it’s not. I would return the items and try again. Its annoying when they don’t know how their registers work.

    My ShopRite circular has a Super Coupon getting the Maxwell House Coffee for $7.99 making them only $6.99 ea……But the coupon says Redeem at Publix….Will ShopRite accept it….I know it is manufacturers coupon but I’m not sure if my ShopRite will except it

    I just tried the Panteene and not only would the second $3/2 not work (can do one at a time), the $10 cat did not print. 🙁

    • Lori

      Which store were you in and why wouldn’t they take the 2nd coupon? There should be no reason you can”t use 2 coupons if you had 4 products!

      • Nicole

        I’d be raising all hell with that one at the register! Even if Cat didn’t print you should still be able to use two coupons with the right amount of product.

              I tried it at the Malrboro Nj Shoprite…the coupon would not go through at the register and the manager said on the coupon it says only 1 per transaction, which it didnt…didnt want to go through argument, never had that issue…customer service also said the same, cats should be for post sale price not original retail. We all know that it works most times and at times its doesnt, but short of fighting in store…chalk it up or return. Oh well.

      I tried the Pantene deal this morning and it didn’t work for me but I think it’s the catalina machine was the problem ( it was blinking). The $4 cat for solo didn’t print for me either.I think it’s just bad luck!Lesson learned today, make sure the light on the catalina machine is green and not red or the catalina won’t print.

      • Laura D.

    • Andrew

      I just did the Pantene deal at the Brick, NJ Shoprite and the catalina did not print out. I went to customer service expecting to have to return the shampoo, but they gave me the catalina there after just quickly glancing at my receipt. So YMMV depending on which customer service person you get.

      • Chana

        I plan on going soon. In the past when catalinas didn’t print based on the regular price ( prior to using price plus card) they looked at the ad and told me I didn’t spend enough pointing to the sale price.
        Did you purchase any other things with that transaction?

      • Wendy

        I did yesterday, but had no luck. Went to customer service and he said it was because my total was only $15.96 (purchased 4 fine dry to moisture). He kindly refunded my money and even went and retrived my coupons back from the register that I had checked out at. 🙂 By 5:00 yesterday they were all out of solo and issuing rain checks 🙁

    I tried it in Flemington NJ and the CAT did not print. I think I got the wrong kind though. I just wanted the original because that is the kind I use. For the people who received the cat which type did you get?

    • Lori

      Sarah, the ad in my area reads “22.8 to 25.4-oz., Fine, Curly, Color Shine & Smoothing, Conditioner or Pantene Shampoo”. So, I don’t know if that impacted your transaction or not.

      • Lesley

        I got the $10 cat when I bought 4 of the Dry to Moisturize. I went to CS and they checked me out since we did not know if the CAT would print. My two $3 off 2 coupons scanned perfectly and I even used my $1 CAT from Solo to make my total $10.03 (I also got 5cents off for having a bag). So it worked for me even though the type I bought was not listed in the circular.

    I’m in Seymour, CT and my Pantene transaction was SUCCESSFUL! I got four Pantene’s and my CAT printed out. For some reason the second coupon would not scan but I explained to her that I got the proper products for it and heard there has been a problem with it. She called someone over and had it manually entered for me. Also, I got Marcal Napkins for .84 each. Stupidly, I handed her expired coupons but had extra’s in my coupon binder. Yay! Successful shopping trip all around. I’m happy! Can’t wait to hit the stores again. Also, does anyone know if the CAT coupon will print out again? I’m thinking of going back and doing the transaction again. Thanks!

      Was this the Derby store? I had the opposite happen this morning. Both Pantene q’s worked, but the CAT didn’t print. I went to customer service and they printed one for me. To be safe, I also had 4 of the Old Spice body washes on my order using BOGO q’s so I was well above the $25 minimum.

      • Nicole

        Yep! It was in the Derby store. I have another coupon and am strongly considering going back, buying another newspaper and rolling the cat coupon to another four Pantenes. The Old Spice I found a bit cheaper elsewhere so I really didn’t wanna use them there if I could help it. Glad to know CS will help you out when they don’t print though.

    BTW-Someone (sorry, I don’t remember who) mentioned on a previous week’s match-ups that Carefree is on sale for .99, making them free if you use .50/1 coupons. I checked yesterday and the Canton, CT ShopRite has a shelf tag that says that is a “locked in” price good until March 2012! So, dig out whatever .50/1 Carefree coupons you can find!!!:)

  • Lynn

    Pantene unsuccessful Bloomfield, NJ- was told CAT works after sale price 🙁

    • Kim

      Same for me 🙂 Brookdale Shoprite????? I did the following:
      2 Pantenes with the $3.00 off of 2
      1 Olay Lotion with $1.00 Q that wouldn’t go through (NEVER happens at Brookdale … the manager put it through, something about it being “in shower” body lotion??? Was confused
      1 Crest
      1 Crest Mouthwash
      The girl subtracted the $2.50 sale price off on the Pantene. So it only came to $19.94 (she did not deduct my coupons though at least 🙂
      She told me to just go get another Olay Lotion.
      So I ended up paying $24.73 minus coupons so the end was $17.73 and I received the $10.00 CAT.
      I suppose I certainly should not be complaining that I paid $7.73 for all of that considering 1 Pantene almost costs that alone.
      Strange things going on though … seems like P&G polices are changing with the CATs. 🙁

    • Michele

      Janelle, I did the Pantene deal at Shoprite on Hylan Blvd this evening. Bought 4 large bottles of Pantene Color Preserve Shine shampoo, used 2 $3/2 coupons and got the $10 Catalina.

      I wish I could get my hands on a couple more of those coupons!

      While I was in the store, I noticed there were $5 rebate forms for holiday food purchases stuck to the Samuel Adams beer. No beer purchase is required, and it doesn’t even specify what they consider “holiday food!” I will definitely be submitting that one. There was also a $10 mail-in rebate stuck to the Corona beer, but that one requires both beer and meat purchase.

      • Janelle S

        Thank you Michele I will be trying that deal on Thursday…I hope it works (if not I will definently be returning these and buying them from CVS with the $10 GC deal that they have going on)

    When I did my Pantene deal, I was rung up at customer service and the catalina machines where not on…I work there and I had something to do so I came back. When I came back they showed me the catalina and gave me my 10.00 back because I had paid for the whole thing. Knowing they would correct it…Going back tomorrow for more and this time I will pay nothing because I will have 2 coupons…this is the best deal by far! Got me excited!

  • Laurie M.

    Pantene did NOT work in Eddystone, PA Shoprite. But my husband but the Smooth Vitality kind because he said he couldn’t find “Smoothing” which is what the ad said. For those of you that it worked for, what kind of Pantene did you get?

    • Lesley

      I bought 4 of the Dry to Moisturize ones and I got the $10 cat.

      • Laura D.

        I bought COLOR Preserve Shine, 3 of the shampoo, 1 of the conditioner. Worked perfectly! Did it twice!

        • Laura D.

          Just a suggestion – if you take the shampoo your husband bought back with the receipt to customer service and explain he bought the wrong kind. They may allow you to exchange it for the correct type, not lose the value of your coupons and print out the $10.00 cat for you. Depending on your customer service they may allow it. I have done this in the past, told them I completely messed up, was it possible to fix it so I didn’t miss out on the deal. To date I have done this 3 times. Customer service in 2 different stores and each time they’ve helped me out. It never hurts to ask!

  • Donna

  • Cindy

    After reading through a lot of the comments, I’m seeing a trend in the Pantene that is working and the ones that are not. If you try the deal, stick with the Dry to Moisture or the Color Preserve Volume. So far those 2 seem to be working. Curly and Smooth vitality do not seem to be working for some reason.

    Please let us know which one you bought and if it worked or not.

    • JoeP

      My experience so far is that the CAT wasn’t produced for Med.-Thick: Dry to Moisturized.(CS made good.) It has been generated for Fine: Flat to Volume. It seems possible the distinction is between hair types rather than between claimed effects. (This would agree with the ad.) Strangely, the second of my $3 C’s has gone through only once without an override, and that was in the case of the CAT not being generated.

      • Anonymous

        CAT came and I purchased the Med-Thick dry to moisturized so I dont think it is that

    • Angela

      I bought the 4 of the curly kind and my catalina printed. I bought the bigger bottles. My store had the ad printed with the catalina information next to a whole set up of the bigger bottles but not the smaller bottles though they were both priced at $3.99.Maybe it’s the sizes that generate the cat and not the type?

    • pk

      thanks for the heads-up, cindy. the deal worked for me at the west orange SR. there were 2 HUGE

      • pk

        sorry – my laptop is acting up!!!

        so there were 2 huge displays with the whole deal printed up by SR including photocopies of the ad and cat deal. mostly conditioner left on the shelves, but i was able to snag 8 bottles and do it over 2 transactions. i rolled my $10 cat into the 2nd transaction and the cat wouldn’t take, so the front end manager did override it. a couple of posts down someone said that the cat can’t be applied to another PG deal? maybe this is why – i didn’t even read the cat when i first got it (too excited that i got such a good deal!). but i did end up paying tax – about $1.14???

        also – there’s a hangtag for reynolds wrap. one free box on the environmentally-friendly one after the mail-in rebate. hth.

  • Lady J

    can you do the Pantene deal more than once?
    If so, can you roll the $10 cat?

    • Laura D.

      You can do it more than once! I won’t try to roll cat’s in my shoprite because the office people watching the registers stop the transaction (party poopers). I was wondering this myself because it is worth going to a different Shoprite to roll this deal.

        I did it this morning! $.99 per box…… can’t wait to get more coupons to do this one more time! Yay! Now if Nestle will come through with a catalina deal that includes the nescafe coffee, my stockpile will be complete!

  • TJ

    Has anyone tried rolling the pantene cat?

    • Nicole

      I rolled the Pantenes deal. I paid for my purchase with my cat and got another. Went to the same store and everything. No problems. The woman actually mentioned extreme couponing to me lol it was great.

    • You can get multiple $10.00 Cats but the Cat says “Not for use on Proctor and Gamble products” on the right side of it. My cashier applied the $10.00 Cat on my next purchase of (4) Pantenes but then told me that she could only do that once. It did print the $10.00 Catalina using the $10.00 Catalina though. It had to be overidden if your store will do that for you. Thank you to the very kind cashier yesterday in CT! Once is better than nonce! 🙂

      • JoeP

        I’ve repeatedly rolled the CATS with no problem. I don’t know if it’s necessary, but I’ve always used a small filler item to bring my net purchase, before tax, above $10.00.

  • ali

    My cat did not print for pantene in Bedford, NY. So sad….

  • TJ

    I was thinking about trying this..
    1 covergirl lipstick @4.19 (shelf 5.99)
    4 covergirl lipslicks gloss @ 3.42 (shelf 4.89)
    total 17.87 (shelf 25.55)
    – (2) 2.50/2 covergirl items
    -1.00/1 covergirl item
    after coupons= $11.87

    Would this produce the $10 CAT? Has anyone tried something similar?

    • TJ

      Yes! The above scenario for covergirl lip products worked. 1.87 for 5 items after coupons and catalina.

  • Jessica

    Glen Burnie, MD was out of the solo plates yesterday. The Poppy’s perogies are surprisingly good, though!

  • Veeda

    Hi i saw a post about the Clariol instinct hair dye.. does the catalina also print out for the Clariol Nice and easy hair dye?

    • Laura D.

      I don’t think so. The catalina states “Buy 2 or more Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Color products in a single transaction between 10/31 – 11/27 and receive a coupon for $3.00 off your future shopping trip” . Which is strange because I bought them today around noon. Today is 11/28. Unless the date on the cat is a typo and it goes to 12/27/11?? The expiration date is 1-23-12. Cindy had posted it should run through the end of the year. But now I am confused.
      Anyway……Clairol Natural Instincts only.

  • Cindy

    The Palmolive dish soap, for $.88
    the $.50/1 coupon in the 11/13 ss makes it FREE.

    • Brittany

      I think that may have a size/type restriction which would make it not qualify. I also believe it starts with a 9 meaning it would not double but I have to check when I get home.

  • Cindy

    Those of you that have tried the Pantene deal this week and it didn’t work, did you buy the regular size bottles or the large bottles? The deal is on the large bottles but the regular sized bottles are also priced at $3.99 this week.

    • Kim

      I did buy the large bottles … and I made sure I purchased the exact kind that was listed in the ad. Still didn’t work 🙁

  • valentina

    hi am i the only one who doesnt see the solo coupon anymore?
    it didnt work last week for me it said “sorry something something” and this week its not even in the solo website!!!! i need cups =/ help

    • Lori

      Check for a link to “Bare by Solo” in the comments under LAST week’s ShopRite Matchups. Someone posted one there.

  • Laura D.

    Does anyone else have their Clairol Natural Instincts Catalina available?
    The promotion dates on mine says it runs from 10/31/11 to 11/27/11. I bought 4 of them today and all 3 catalinas printed. I am wondering if it is a typo on the promotion dates, or if I just got lucky and later on in the week it won’t work. I am hoping to do this deal one more time when I get more coupons from family.

  • Monica

    🙂 IT WORKED!

    Free Panteen..HOw great is that?

    I purchased 4 Pantene Shampoos & Conditioners.
    Pantene Shampoo ($6.49) – $3.99
    (2) $3/2 Pantene Product

    $25.96 before coupons
    Paid $9.96 after sale & coupons.

    Received $10 Catalina… FREE!!!

    • Julie

      It worked for me too! Was able to roll it a few times (there was plenty left on the shelf as well). I paid 10.59 after coupons though (and .59 thereafter when using the $10 cat to pay). Don’t know why I paid the .59 cents but still very happy. Those bottles are huge!

      • Lori

        Monica & Julie…..which stores were successful for you? Thank you!:)

      I go to those stores too! Did not try yet. Let me know if you are successful. Angel will work with you at Washington. He is the manager

      • Marie

        Thanks! I was afraid to try it because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of returning them if it didn’t work.

  • Kim

    I bought 1 25.4 ounce Fine Flat to Volume Conditioner; 1 25.4 ounce Medium to Thick Breakage to Strength Shampoo, the correct Crest toothpaste, the correct Crest Mouthwash and an Olay Lotion. I am thinking that it was the Olay Lotion that caused my CAT NOT to print. Beware … the ad says Quench (ultra moist or jojoba … and I got advanced healing). CS said it was because I didn’t purchase enough (they used the sale prices, not the regular prices) and let me get another bottle of the Olay (the same one I think caused the problem). But they gave me the CAT anyway. I just had to spend more $.

  • Flora

    I can report that the 5.00 certificate oyno that prints out for toys etc works on shelf prices here in Toms River S R
    Haven’t tried the Pantene because they did not have one bottle on the shelf!
    CS said. Well , we did have a big sale last week and were all out!! Will try again in Brick

    I’m just starting out with couponing and was curious about where to get some of the coupon booklets that are referenced in the daily match-ups? Any info would help…Thanks!

    • Cathy

      My SR in DE has coupons in a rack near the C/S desk. You could also ask C/S if they have them.

  • Christina

    I did 3 separate transactions and 2 of them were the 4 pantenes each and I got 4 hair dyes. I earned 3 $10 cats and 1 $3 cat (for shoprite). HOWEVER…… the 3 $10 cats are to be used only at fashion bug????? The paper only said to earn $10 on ur next shopping trip. This was in the Manchester, CT store. Anyone else have this happen? Can I switch them or ask customer svc?

    • Chrissy

      the fashion bug cats that print are completely separate from any store cats you qualify for. If you didn’t receive the SR $10.00 cat, your store might be one where the deal is off price plus price.

    • Lori

      Christina, What size & type of Pantene did you buy? The size and specific kind of Pantene seems to be making a difference! I’d love to know since I shop at that store!

    Thanks Cindy! What a week to have triple coupons at my local MD Shoprite!!!! So excited to do my shopping this week!!!!!!!!

    • Rocky

      Cindy, anything you can do to convince the SR group in the NJ areas of Wharton, Dover/Rockaway, Parsippany to hold a triple coupon event soon (the Sat/Sun type that NY had would be a luxury since alternating- week budgets could be covered)?

      What with the White Plains, NY areas, and, now, Maryland areas having them, lately, any chance the owners could be coerced, ummm, convinced that it would really good for their business to do so? This would be sooooo nice! I know I’ve got my fingers crossed! Thanks, R

  • Cynthia

    Question. My sister found Solo Cup coupons from Canada on-line. The coupon does not state “Canada Only”. She used 4 coupons at Shoprite and they accepted them, although they put them in manually, but the manager was more than helpful and looked it over and ok’d it!

    Is this okay to do or was it luck that my sis was able to use these?

    • Cindy

      The store will not be reimbursed for these coupons since they are meant for Canadian Residents.

  • Marjie

    The Pantene deal worked at the Bound Brook NJ ShopRite and it rolled. I bought (4) Curly Pantene for $9.96. Used (2) $3/2 coupons from 11/27 P&G and also the $10 cat that I received yesterday for buying Pantene. I received another $10 cat at check-out! I just started couponing 2 months ago and I am very excited to have accumulated items that cost under $1 and as low as free. I have designated a shelf in my basement for donations.

    Does anyone in the Philadelphia area know where I can find the Irish Spring single bars of soap???? I have some coupons that expire tomorrow and I want to use them but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I did find it in the Shoprite at Haldeman and the Blvd but they only had a couple and I have gone back a couple times and they still don’t have any. I would hate for them to expire and not get to use them 🙁

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    Hi I have a question I try to do the 3 deal in shoprite today and only one 10 catalina came out and two 3.00 for clairol I’m missing two $10 catalina from the transaction. Is there anyway I can return the item and repurchase it. Do I loose the coupon I use? Please help me !

    • Anonymous

      Clairol and pantene are both P & G products so if you did both deals in one transaction then you will only get one $10 cat ( not 3 $10 cats)because they’re both part of buy $25 P & G and get $10 cat. If you return the items, you’ll lose your coupons but they will reimburse you the full price ( before coupons) since they will get reimbursed for the coupons you have given them.

    • Kelly

      The catalina did not print for me for the Pantene deal yesterday. I returned the items and they gave me my coupons back. However I returned them right after leaving the register.

  • Lori

    Did anyone else use the $55 off fruitables coupon and it didn’t double. It didn’t say dnd so I’m wondering why. My toblerone coupons didn’t double either and they start with a 5 even though they say dnd. Can the cashier stop the doubling of everything, because nothing in my order doubled?

    • heather

      They can block doubling but you would probably notice. Did you make sure to use your price plus card?

  • Anonymous

    I had the same thing happened to me( a few weeks agoThe cashier was the opposit).My q’s were dnd5. I asked the cashier why they didn’t double and she just shrugged her shoulders..I thought the q’s were the problem but I tried to use the same coupons the next day w/ a different cashier and they all doubled.

    Does anyone know what the stock is like on the Pantene in Southington, CT store? I’ve decided to try to do the cat deal there later this week since I’m not sure it will work in the Canton or Manchester stores where I usually shop. Unfortunately, I can’t get to Southington until Fri night or Sat morning, so I was wondering if the shelves are already bare or if they are in good supply? Thank you!:)

    • Allison

      I went here Sunday morning and they were completely out after the $1.99 sale last week… I plan on making a trip back Saturday morning to see if they got anymore in, but the CS didn’t seem too confident

      • Lori

        Thank you, Allison!:) Looks like the cat is working in Canton (right near me, so I may be able to leave the Southington shampoo all for you)!:)

    The Vails Gate store has over 100 bottles of Pantene. There are displays at both entrances and on the one side they have displays behind displays because they have so much. There are signs on both sides stating that if you buy 4, you will receive a coupon for $10 off your next order.

    I am new to this couponing thing but i have noticed, and it happens every singele time i go shopping! The cashier starts to scan, the reg beeps, but the coupon does not scan. Last time i noticed the mistakes totaled 4.50. i had to go to the service desk, they had to go get the coupons and figure out what happened. I finally got the money owed to me after 45 mins. ?????

    • Roxy

      sometimes that happen but if that is the case they do it manually sometimes, don’t give up, you shouldn’t have any problem, sometimes that happen specially with internet coupons, just make sure that your coupons are not expired and you are taking the right product for your coupon, I hope this helps you, good luck 🙂

  • Flora

    Pantene did not work in Brick NJ store today. Went through two times two different registers and no oyno, Bought large size. Same as I got. Sunday when I did get the cat. Maybe they changed their programming!,

    The Pantene Catalina is not working in Enfield, CT. The lady at the service desk told me I had to spend $25 after sale and coupons. I returned them.

  • Missy

    Does anyone know if the pantene deal is working in Linden NJ? I’m trying to use up my P&G 10/30 and a $10 cat would be a nice score. If not I’ll use them at CVS towards their giftcards.

    If anyone is buying the World Harbors Marinade, there is a .55 coupon in the Holiday Savings booklets that were at Stop & Shop and Shoprite before Thanksgiving. Expires 1/31/12. It says DND but i haven’t tried it to see if it actually does. might be worth a try?

      Was wondering the samething……

  • RC

    can anyone tell me if they’ve returned things they used coupons towards and cs wanted to not give them the full amount back? a littlw while ago i had 4 kikkoman seasoning packets, 2 of which i used coupons for, when i went to return 3 of them (turns out they were not vegetarian) cs supervisor looked through my rct and said i dont get any money cause i got them free with coupons. i said i paid full price for 2 which i will be returning. she said the 3rd one i could only exchange. or give it back to them free. they’ve obviously gotten reimbursed for the coupon, that’s stealing on their part!
    anyway, i have a few items i need to return this week some of which i forgot to use my coupons for and the toblerones that didn’t double but i was wondering if they’re going to assume those items were free too and give me a hard time. some of the toblerones doubled (free) and some didn’t (.50, in other trans).
    Thanks!

    • TJ

      I returned some pantene today and they would not give me the value of my $3.00 coupon. Usually they go and fish the coupons out of the register but this lady didnt offer to do that and since I was short of time I didnt complain. Other times I have had them give me the full value of the coupon back. It just seems to depend on who you get in the CS line.

      • RC

        I usually, other than that time, don’t have a receipt, they scan my card, scan the item and it shows up. does the computer tell them a coupon was used or do they have to manually check it? I’m asking because I want to return some items that i forgot to use my coupons on, but had previously purchased same items with coupons. If its going to be a hassle i would just have to find the receipts that show i didn’t use coupons on those items.

        • VeronicaZenCouponer

          I would definitely have the receipts, a lot of times customer service will look at value of product and have no way of telling that a coupon used was used towards that product, unless the coupon explicitly says that it was a coupon for that product on the receipt (cellfire is like that). I personally consider it stealing on their part, but I suppose what would stop someone from using this system as a way to convert coupons to physical cash 8)

    • June

      As far as I know, all the shoprite I went to only allow the actual paying price refund when you do a return. Which means, they only refund you the price you paid which is minus coupon value. One of the customer service even told me they will pull out the coupons and not submit for the money from MFG if I return the product. I don’t believe anything from her mouth. Anyway, it just fell so down when the catalina didn’t print when others tried and worked. I really think shoprite is gaining their profit by not returning customer’s coupon or money of the coupon value. Someone must say something.

  • Lori

    Woohoo! I was just at the Shop Rite in Canton, CT tonight and decided to bite the bullet and try the Pantene deal. I really didn’t think it would work and CS came over and said to the cashier that as long as I spent $25 it would work. At which point, the cashier of course pointed out that I didn’t spend $25 because it was on sale. I had her hold the coupons out of the drawer so she could give them back to me if I decided to void the order if the cat didn’t print, but it was my lucky day & out it came! I bought all 25.4 oz bottles of a variety of types….shampoos as well as conditioners….but it worked. So, have at it Canton shoppers….you should be good to go! Also, I noticed that the West Hartford and Canton stores are owned by the same family, so my theory is that it will work in West Hartford as well. Good luck!:)

    • New To Couponing

      Did you buy 4 or more of the pantene? I tried at the poughkeepsie shoprite and it didn’t work. Just called the catalina number and hoping I get it all worked out or I will be returning 4 pantenes and be out a good coupon….

      • Lori

        I just bought 4 of the Pantene. I also bought 4 Carefree in the same transaction, but I don’t think that’s a P & G product and they were only .99 each (the Carefree), so I don’t think that added to the cat. Some stores have been working for that cat on shelf prices (before the 3.99 price plus card price) and some have not.

        Since I was concerned about losing my coupons, I asked them to do this trasaction for me separately & told them to hold the coupons out since if the cat didn’t print, I’d be cancelling the transaction. Luckily, that didn’t happen this time & I got to keep the shampoo.

        What variety of Pantene did you buy? I don’t think this cat works at all on the Classic. It also has to be the 25.4 oz size.

        • Kris

          I’ve done the Pantene deal 4x (I had a large number of coupons so I could give bottles away to my sisters and St. Vincents yeah!!) at ShopRite Medford & West Berlin – they worked everytime. I bought all different kinds, including Classic – never a problem.

        • RC

          Do the cats print out right before you pay or how do they then void the transaction. wouldn’t you actually have to go to cs and get a refund and have someone being over the coupons?

          • Lori

            Yes, I would probably have had to do that but I wanted to be sure to say up front that I was going to want the coupons back if it didn’t work. The CS person came over to the register to see if it worked anyway, so I had everyone involved!:)

      • Lora

        Cat is not printing at Poughkeepsie store because they are ringing up as on sale for $3.99….not $6.49 and then a reduction for using your savings card of $2.50 for a final total of $3.99 each. I went right to the CS desk to figure out, I returned my items and they gave me my coupons back.

        • New To Couponing

          I am not sure but I am going to try again….After I read the reply to my earlier post, I checked the size and noticed that the Poughkeepsie Shop Rite had a sign next to the 12.5 oz sizes on an endcap advertised for the 3.99, so I definitely got the worng size….I am going back to try again and hopefully it will work with the right size. I think it is a little sneaky to have a smaller size that is the same price on the end cap with the with the sale sign…….

          • Colleen

            If you decide not to try at shop rite, walgreens is running a $2 reg reward on purchase of 2 for $3.50 each, less the $3/2 q makes them $1 each. They are the smaller bottles, but still a good deal for Pantene…

      • mandee

        The poughkeepsie store always has drama with the catalinas I have family that will drive to another town when its a good cat!! They are very rude down there!!!!! if your going to do a few of the transaction try new paltz , newburgh,or vails gate

      • Jenny

        I did the deal at the poughkeepsie store and it worked. I bought 2 pantene and 2 hair dye. But they even had a sign on the display saying buy four and get $10 back.

        • New To Couponing

          I went back to the Poughkeepsie store and returned the old pantenes (wrong size)…They didn’t give me my coupon but didn’t deduct it from my previous purchase anyway, so i just purchased the pantenes without the coupon and it worked…twice! Thanks for all of you help everyone!

    Did the pantene deal in East Brunswick, NJ today with no problem! I was really excited! They had a TON of conditioner, but hardly any shampoo left! I had to really search the shelves to find 2! I bought 2 shampoos for fine hair and 2 conditioners for curly hair and it worked perfectly!

  • Shannon

    Okay, so yesterday I did the Pantene deal with no problems. Bought 4, used 2 coupons, catalina printed out. I had purchased other items at the same time, with a total over $25 but none of the other ones counted towards the $10 catalina deal.

    Today I went to do the deal on my sister’s behalf because her paper didn’t have the coupons. I used her phone number, bought 4 Pantenes (classic, this time), used 2 coupons, and had no catalina print.

    I’m so disappointed and am trying to decide if it is worth speaking with customer service over or if I should just return them. I had two more coupons I was going to use tomorrow for my mother and now I am torn over what to do…

    • Michelle B

      That stinks! I heard the “classic” pantene isn’t working. you should try exchanging them for “dry to moisturize” or “color preserve” and then it should produce a catalina.

    Purchased 4 pantene shampoos at shoprite in paramus NJ and did not receive the $10 catalina. They are ringing up $3.99 each (before price plus card scanned). Any suggestions?

    • Laura D.

      YES!! Bring the shampoos back to customer service with your receipt. In Paramus there is a HUGE display in the back of the store (hunt fot it, it’s all cardboard stands with tons of shampoos on it). Next, there are many photocopies of the catalina deal taped onto the displays. Read it carefully to make sure you bought the correct type and size. If you did, cs will definitely make good on the catalina. If you didn’t, explain you were trying to make the deal and you made a mistake, will they please let you exchange your items for the correct product and will they print out a cat for you. I have done this in the past there. Their customer service is great! If you can’t figure out where you went wrong, ask customer service to help you out. Usually everyone who works there is very nice and they get a kick out of how well the deals match up. Good Luck!!!

    Got a Pantene Moneymaker yesterday and tonight. Purchased 4 pantene shampoos each day. Since they ran out with the black friday sale I got rainchecks for 8 bottles. ( 2 rainchecks )

    first transaction:
    used the raincheck $1.99 each
    used (2) $3/2 pantene
    Paid $2.00
    Recieved $10 catalina

    second transaction was the same as the first but the following day.

    Total out of pocket = $4.00
    Total catalinas = $20

    Pantene Catalina SUCCESS at Wallingford Store, twice. Bought Curly smooth and moisturizer, shampoo and conditioner mix.

      Did they have a lot in stock at Wallingford? I went a couple of days ago and they were still out.

      • Sol

        More than they usually have in stock for good sale items. I think I got the last two curly moisturizer cond, everything else they has some of each left. This was Wed night.

    Does anyone know any good sources for produce coupons to use at Pathmark or Shoprite? My bf just turned vegetarian and I’d like to eat more veggies myself too!

    just wondering if anyone tried the gift card deal. where does it show you earned the $20? do you have to buy multiple cards? I bought one $100 Mastercard gift card, but now im afraid it wasn’t on the rack with the deal ones it may not qualify. Nothing printed on my receipt 🙁

    • bobbi

      i did the gift card deal, RC. Bought $100.00 worth of Lowe’s cards, nothing printed on my receipt. But the fine print says that the credit will appear 12/05/11. I’ve saved the recepit and advertisement just in case it doesn’t show up next week.

      I bought $100 in gift cards on 12/1 – nothing showed up on the receipt. Today when I made a purchase the $20 credit was not there. Went to customer service – they had no idea what I was talking about. One of them got out a circular from last week – and then they looked up my priceplus information in their computer system. There was nothing in the system to show that I qualified for the $20. They gave me 4 $5 catalinas but when I got home I found out they were for $5 off my next baby purchase. I had to go back to Shoprite and have those replaced. From this point on – only gift card deals where a catalina prints. To think – before I bought the gift cards I went to customer service to confirm the promotion. Lesson learned.

    i also tried the pg deal, if anyone is still going for it tomorrow. west hardtford shoprite was out of shampoo, i got 4 curly conditioners and it worked. i got 2 clairon and 2 nature infusion conditioner and it didn’t work. cs wasn’t very nice about printing it but finally i convinced them.

    I had some $3.00 off any Pepperidge Farm coupons for some time and was looking for a store to use them. I found tPepperidge Farm Cookies are on sale at SR for $2.5 this week. I went to a newly open SR in our area this morning. Since they only allowed 4 identical coupons per transaction, I split the check out. I was surprised that:
    1) Each coupon take $3.00 off automatically, even though I reminded the cashier to adjust it down.
    2) On the 2nd & 3rd transactions, there were a small notice printed out at the bottom of receipts. “Congratulations! you just received $5 Saving Certificates…” Also there is a code printed out with the notice.

    If this $5 Saving Certificates is true, then it is a great MM for something that many people love to eat!

    How many times can you do the Pantene deal?

  • I just wanted to let everyone know that the deal involving Spend $15, Get $5 is working on the PrePlus price. I did it this morning buying $28 ($32) and got two $5 certificates
