  • Terri Laughner

    If the deal for stop and shop excludes honey nut cheerio’s then how dose the above deal work with them included? Am I missing something?

    • Selma

      That’s a typo, it meant including.

    • MicheleAna

      I did this deal yesterday with 4 Honey Nut Cheerios, 2 lucky charms and 2 CTC along with two Pure Leaf teas. I paid a dollar and received $5 cat. Cocoa Puffs were not tagged at my store.

      • Laura D.

        Do you have the UPC for the Lucky Charms? I noticed mine say “3 new rainbows” on the front, which didn’t produce the $5 cat for me. I’m thinking that may be the culprit, wee, one of the culprits.

        • MicheleAna

          Yeah, upc 1600027534 HTH

    • it doesn’t exclude them they were tagged in our store ” Cereals tagged in our store were Cheerios, Chex excluding Blueberry, Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Original, Lucky Charms and Reese’s Puffs!”

      • HF

        Blueberry chex were tagged at my store. I didn’t buy any to see if it worked, though.

        • John

          I purchased the Blueberry Chex and the instant savings came off and Catalina printed 🙂

  • Laura D.

    Is Cocoa Puffs Included in this deal?

    • MicheleAna

      I don’t think so. They were not tagged at my store

      • Laura D.

        Oh, bummer! Thanks for the info!

    • nick hill

      Yes they are in the cat but not the instant savings deal unfortunately.

      • Laura D.

        Thanks nick!

    • Harry

      I’m looking for coca puffs deals as well. Some months back they had so many MM deals for Coco puffs and I stocked up on them and now the stockpile is winding down. Kind of thinking this is their strategy – to give away free cocoa puffs to get us addicted to them and then when we run out we have to pay full price..grrr.

      • Laura D.

        The last few deals I have missed. 🙁 Plus I only get the $1/3 coupon. I decided to go ahead and buy some of the $0.75/1 for the deal at SR, where I know the Cocoa Puffs are included and free! The CP deals are definitely few and far between now. I only have one family member that eats them occasionally. I figure if they don’t eat them all, they are donated! 🙂

      • Laura D.

        Correction, CP NOT included at SR. Have no idea where I got that one from. smh…

      • Laura D.

        Hey Harry! Have you seen the new ACME ad yet?? Looks like we have a Cocoa Puff Sale starting tomorrow! $1.99 11.8 oz package! There is also 4x gas rewards with this product! I haven’t looked into if that is worth it yet. At $0.49 a box I’m in! Luckily we didn’t have to wait too long!

        • Harry

          Thanks for the heads up. No ACMEs close by, but might still consider driving some distance for this one since I am running low on coca puffs and they are EVERYDAY breakfast.

          • Laura D.

            I hear ya, the closest ACME for me is an hour away. However, I will be close enough to 2 of them tomorrow and will gladly make the detour and provide extra time to pick them up.

            • Harry

              Got a CAT print out in SR today notifying of CP sale next week (week of 8/27)! Hopefully some 75 coupons are still around. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c345c24d54b4d7016ff591674bee27e8ab512bef1854594f0522354bec12a34c.jpg

              • Laura D.

                I was by two ACME’s when they had their sale (last week?) and I stocked up. I now have 10 boxes and should be good until the end of winter. Unless of course, someone starts eating them daily. Thanks for the heads up! I appreciate it! We’ll have to make a note mid August is Cocoa Puff sale time.

    • they weren’t tagged at my store

  • Pamela

    I just bought 4 NV cups @ $2.50 each and did NOT receive any cat! 🙁

    • Selma

      Did you have an e-coupon? That might have taken you under the required $10 to $9.50. I’m going to throw in a couple Old El Paso items to make sure it goes above.

      • Pamela

        No e coupons used.I was wondering if the $4.00 instant savings lowered by total from $10 to $6??

        • IK

          instant savings have no effect on this. the only explanation is catalina machine not working. contact catalina.

          • Turntables

            Would a cashier pushing through coupons impact cats printing?

            • IK

              it might – if they do it like a store coupon, or something else OTHER THAN manu coupons… I base this on my fiasco with the digital which affected my total 🙁 this is just an opinion – i may be wrong…

              • Turntables

                I had this issue with Spend x IS deals so I suspected this type of stuff would happen. At least this will help others in case something happens.

              • Turntables

                So I tried this because of problems with my coupons scanning and the cat didn’t come out. I’ll have to contact them. I hope it will be easy getting through.

        • support.catalinamarketing.com (have your receipt ready)

          • Pamela

            Thanks for the info, Loretta!

    • Ash Patel

      did the deal back to back and the first time the cat did not print and the second time it did.

      • D

        Did you buy the cups by any chance when it didn’t print but the bars when it did? Maybe it is the granola cups that are causing issues? I don’t know but it seems that those saying it didn’t print, bought at least a box of the cups.

        • Ash Patel

          one time i bought 3 peanut butter cups and 1 almond butter cups it did print, when i bought 4 almond butter cups it did not print….

          • Yan

            i bought 4 of the almond butter cups and it printed. i bought 2 bars and 2 chocolate almond butter and it did not print, but i’m assuming it was because of the (forgotten) digital coupons i had loaded

  • Kari

    I appreciate the deal ideas without the .75 coupon since many people don’t have access to those!! Thank you!

    • Wing

      Whoops I misread. Sorry!

    • 🙂 – I really only have printables occasionally I’ll order some high value coupons but rarely ever cereal

  • Michelle T.

    I bought 7 boxes of cereal and 2 NV Granola Cups, just in case the $1.50 in digital coupons would effect anything. It still didn’t print. Contacted Catalina Marketing…FYI, I bought one Reese’s, 2 Chex, 2 CTC, 2 HN Cheerios, 2 Granola Cups. .50 coupons for each item, $1/2 GM ecoupon and .50 Granola Cups ecoupon, 2 $4 IS came off.

  • Laura D.

    Anyone having consistent success with this deal when buying 8 cereals and getting the $5 cat?
    I went to 2 different SS today with a total of 3 transactions.

    2 HNC, 6 Lucky Charms – $3.50 cat – the $1 ecoupon did come off so I figured that was the culprit.

    8 CTC – $5 cat (score! great, it was the ecoupon)

    3 Lucky Charms, 5 CTC – $3.50 cat – HUH?!?!?!?

    Something is wonky. Anyone know what it is? TIA!

    • IK

      hmm… now i begin to think my $3.5 cat vs expected $5 cat fiasco attributed to ecoupons may not necessarily be the result of the ecoupons…

      • Laura D.

        I know!!! I have more coupons and will do at least one more transaction and see what happens. I’ll either buy 8 more CTC or 4HNC and 4 of CTC if stock is available. Fingers crossed!

        • Nik

          I bought 2 Lucky Charms, 2 original Cheerios, 3 Rice Chex and 1 Blueberry Chex. I got -$8 (-$4*2) and a $3.50 catalina. My ecoup did come off. I will try again tomorrow now that my ecoup is used up.

          • Laura D.

            My Lucky Charms box says “3 new rainbows” on the front of the box. UPC 016000275348. Was yours the same? Good Luck tomorrow.

    • IK

      definitely start by contacting catalina regarding your third trans, and see what happens… then, based on outcome, contact them about your first transaction…

      • Laura D.

        What makes it worse for me is I only have one version of the $0.75/1. One of my orders was not the other 75/1 as it should have been, too late to try to fix it. So I only make $2 not the full $5, if I’m lucky enough to get a $5 cat.

    • Turntables

      Did you get a response about your first transaction? I had an eC come off when buying 4 and no cat.

      • Laura D.

        I didn’t fill it out yet, I’m doing it now. The deal definitely has problems. I did 2 more transactions today, one $5 cat one $3.50. Frustrating!

  • nick hill

    An issue i have had twice was scanning my cereal coupons prior to the NV ones. The GM cereal coupons attached to the NV bars and then the coupons for the latter beeped and could not be pushed through as it showed there were already coupons used on them. If I can do the deal again (searching through my printables etc.) I must remember to scan the NV first. Not sure if others have experienced a similar situation but this was two transactions made (1 each) on two different days at two different stores.

    • Pipperroo

      New cereal coupons are up for new month to go with cereal deal

    • IK

      it is even worse than you think – i got 8 NV cups today, and had 8 coupons. After scanning two coupons, the SCO stuck on ‘this coupon can not be accepted’. all i had in my order is NV cups and some health/beauty items, i.e. no other GM items, so it’s not that they were attaching to the wrong items.

      • nick hill

        That is very odd. On my receipt it did show the 4 50c/1 cereal coupons that went through as NV coupons so I didn’t even get to try scanning more than 1 NV coupon as sco cashier saw that i had already scanned coupons for them (which i had not of course) so wouldn’t put any through. I did say they could check the coupon box for my scanned coupons to show they were for the cereal but that required a supervisor who was “busy” and that regardless, they would only accept whatever coupons for what they actually scanned for! I was tired and really not in the mood to wait 15 mins or more for supervisor nor did I want to engage in coupon discussion or education with this staff person as he stated he knew the coupon policy “inside and out” 🙂

        • IK

          Wow…sorry about all the issues you’ve been having at s&s lately…I guess, I was lucky that I only had NV in my order, since I also used SCO…

        • Karen

          Thanks for the heads up as my S&S will not override and goes with how cpn scans too. I have had this happen in other deals such as Crest/Oral B. I am going to try scanning 4 NV products, then NV mfr coupons, then “total” to get cpns apply, then repeat for 4 GM cereals. Lol so much to remember to get this deal to work optimally…

      • nick hill

        Were these printable coupons? How did it end up for you? I love these deals as win win re: my family and donating tons of much needed cereal so feel bad about my complaints yet, at the same time, a legitimate use of coupons and an advertised deal should be honored by those offering them.

        • IK

          Yes, printables… Pushed thru…

  • Pipperroo

    Did the cereal deal twice last night. I bought Reese’s, corn chex, apple cinnamon toast crunch and bought old el paso tacos used 50 cent coupons, both instant savings came off and $5.00 cat printed on both. I a!so picked up a can of Folger’s coffee using a $1.50 cat from shop rite making it just 49 cents.

  • brenda

    Hello…Can I do 8 boxes per order and will the 4 instant saving comes off twice ?TIA

    • Turntables

      Yes. Multiple people have reported it works & just tried it today.

      • brenda

        thank you so much.

        • Turntables

          Glad to help 🙂

  • D

    I went to S&S this evening & was expecting the absolute worst as far as cats go (was confidant IS would come off) and came prepared with the Cat that has the deal printed on it albeit from SR since that’s the only one I physically had & had the scan of the S&S version from the Catalina thread on here ready to go on my phone if necessary. I was expecting CS to say it was after coupons or my items didn’t apply, etc.. and would need to send into Catalina’s site online, etc..
    BUT to my surprise, everything worked perfectly! I had zero issues with coupons, IS or cats. Here’s what I did:

    Transaction #1 – 4 boxes NV cups (3 peanut butter/1 double chocolate) & 3 boxes NV crunchy bars (multi pack) & 1 box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. My 4th granola bar coupon got butchered when I cut it out by accident. 🙁 – paid $4, got $5 Cat.

    Transaction #2 – 4 boxes of Reese’s Puffs & 4 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios. I also added 1 Yoplait Greek yogurt just because I needed to add $1 and we love that yogurt. – Total was $5 and paid with $5 Cat from Transaction #1. Got new $5 Cat.

    Transaction #3 – 4 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and 3 Yoplait Greek Yogurts for the same reason as above – needed to add money and we like those. – Total was $5. Paid with $5 Cat from Transaction #2. Got new $2 Cat.

    Transaction #4 – 2 Greek yogurts. Total was $2 and paid with $2 Cat.

    I wish I had more NV granola coupons but they are gone now and I couldn’t get any more prints at the time. 🙁 I would have gone in and out all day for those. I might go back and get Chex or more of the same cereals above since those coupons reset. Everything I mentioned was labeled with IS tags.

    • D

      Only disappointment was that they didn’t have blueberry chex. I really wanted to try that. In transaction #3 I was going to get 4 of that, 4 CTC and 1 yogurt, pay with $5 cat and get $5 cat and then in transaction #4 just get 5 Greek yogurts and pay w/ previous $5 cat. They only had plain and vanilla chex so I could only get the 4 CTC and go for the $2 cat. Still happy though 🙂

  • Lady J

    I love Honey Nut Chex, and they rarely are included in sales and usually sell for at least 3.99 a box, so I was excited when I saw that this deal included Honey Nut Chex, and also because Stop and Shop don’t care how many coupons you use. I had 7 chex coupons, so I bought 7 boxes of honey nut chex and 1 box of apple cinnamon toast crunch. I am not a fan of cinnamon toast crunch, so I will pass it along. I also had 2 $1/2 stop and shop electronic coupons. I got 2 $4 deductions and both of the electronic coupons came off the order. After the discounts and my 8 coupons, I paid $2 for all my cereal. I did not get a catalina, but I really can’t complain. I got 7 boxes of a cereal I love, that hardly ever goes on sale, for $2, I got a box to donate, and I got all those box tops for my kids’ school.

  • Kim

    No catalina for me 🙁

  • Michelle T.

    I tried two more orders of 8 boxes of cereal and the Cat did not print either time. Contacting Catalina Marketing this morning. Ugh, they’re going to get tired of me…

  • Wing

    Pleasantly surprised, that the $5 catalina came out this morning (around 7:15am) considering the last few times I tried it didn’t work. I bought 4 Cheerios Original, and 4 NV Granola Cups!

  • gilly

    Love this deal…the look on the persons face behind me on self check out was priceless..2 boxes of vanilla chex, 2 original cheerios, 3 boxes of the NV cups and 1 of the NV squares..had 4 cereal coupons and only 3 NV coupons (that all doubled ) there are tons of peelies on the NV boxes for .50 so I used one of those DND…I checked that the green light was on the catalina machine and my $5 came out…went back in and bought a few more things using the $5 …Big Thanks to LRWC..btw my S & S didnot have on the shelf labels that you would get $4 off $10 only that the cereal was 4/$10…if you didn’t look in the flyer you would not have known about this…same with NV…

  • Laura D.

    Gave this deal another try today.
    1st transaction – 4 LC, 4 CTC – $5 cat (Woot!) Good to go, right?

    2nd transaction (different store) – 8 CTC – $3.50 cat

    I did the exact 8 CTC the other day, which produced the $5 cat. I don’t get it. Makes no sense.

    Anyone know the chances we may see to use this coupon which expires 8/20 on another MM deal?

    • Cat Ends 8/06! buy em now 🙂

    • IK

      lol is all i can say… submitted my ticket to catalina yesterday about getting $3.5 vs expected $5 (had few digitals), waiting for response…

      • Laura D.

        Hopefully we will get the amount due to us!

    • sl

      I conducted five transactions and only one $5 Catalina was generated, the other four generated $3.50. I can understand one of the four tons generating a $3.50 Catalina because two digital coupons were applied to my order, but I don’t understand why the other three generated $3.50 Catalinas. One of the $3.50 would not scan and the cashier manually entered it and applied it to one of my cereals, but the receipt states that I paid $2.50 for the one box of cereal instead of -1 dollar. I contacted Catalina. I dnk if they are getting many questions about why some transactions are generating $3.50’instead of $5.

  • Kari

    Can’t wait to go back today! Worked perfectly yesterday except for a sneaky .50 ecoupon that I didn’t know was loaded.

    Trans #1 – 4 CTC, 1 Original Cheerios, 1 Cinnamon Chex, 2 Blueberry Chex (had $1/2 cereal ecoupon), and 1 Taco shells to cover the ecoupon. – $3 OOP got $5 back.

    Trans #2 – 3 NV cups (.50 ecoupon came off, grrr), 2 NV bars (one coupon beeped), 3 boxes of cinnamon chex. – $3.50 OOP and $3.50 back.

  • Karen

    The NV $.50/1 Qples cpn at naturevalley(dot)com linked in the post states it is out of prints.

    • ty! I’m sure the east coast was hitting that coupon hard 😉

      • Wing

        Do you know if the qples coupons go through without beeping? I have 2 that I printed out but haven’t used yet. I’m trying to scrounge up 1 more transaction haha.

        • in all honesty I don’t know. I think if it was a beeper we’d have more complaints maybe?

          • Wing

            True. Appreciate it! 🙂

        • IK

          I did not have issues with those

          • Wing

            Thanks!

        • Turntables

          I used them a week or two ago and they were very smooth. Accepted right away.

  • Wing

    Smooth sailing today! 🙂 I wish I stocked more nature valley coupons.

    Bought 4 Cheerios and 4 Chex and got $5 catalina! Woohoo!

  • D

    Not nearly as good of a deal w/ the current cdc $1/2 NV coupons but we love these granola bars so still worth it to me.
    I bought 4 NV dark chocolate cherry and $2 cat printed and then 3 trail mix / 1 variety pack crunchy granola bars and used previous $2 cat towards my total and got a new $2 cat today.

    I thankfully haven’t had any issues with this deal and was able to score tons of cereal, NV cups and bars for either free or super cheap between my 2 trips.

  • Marie

    Can someone please help me. I am trying to do the same deal on the yeswecoupon site.
    I am getting $8 to pay OOP or am I doing it wrong. The careals cost $2.50each and 8 boxes is $20. I have $.50 off each cereals so the coupons – $4 and total is now $16. The $8 promotion makes it decease to $8. so I am paying $8 OOP and get back $5.00 OYNO Catalina. Maybe I am missing something. Please help.

    • Marie

      Same goes for the Buy 8 Nature Valley Granola Cups. I am missing a step?

      • Clare

        Yes you are missing that you need to use 8 coupons to bring your total to $12. Minus the $8 instant savings the total is $4 get back $5

        • Marie

          $.50 cent off each box cereal. That is $4 off 8 boxes. So if the total is $20 and minus 4 I get $16. $16 minus $8(promotion) , I get $8. Where does the other $4 comes off? Sorry just confuse and don’t want to make a fool of myself when I try to buy today.

          • Laura D.

            The deal you have is only using 4 of the $0.50/1 coupons. You would need 8 of the coupons to get your deal down to $4 (that would be the other $4 you are asking about). With only 4 of the .50 coupons, you’ll pay $8 and get a $5 cat back. Hope that helps!

            • Marie

              Okay I give up. I have 8 coupons. Each coupons is $.50 of 1 box of cereal. I have 8 box of cereal. That is $4 off total. lol I’ll just take me chance when I go there and see.

              • Ken

                each .50 coupon doubles to $1 so 8 coupons x $1 each coupon = $8 off

                • Marie

                  Ohhhh got it now, thank you!

                  • Stop & Shop fully Doubles 99% of coupons that are $0.99 and under so a $0.50 off coupon will auto double to $1 a $0.75/1 will double to $1.50 🙂 (i say 99% of coupons because there are some coupons that are just coded not to double at all – and won’t auto double at the register) You should also note you’ll need to use your shoppers card (or phone number) in order for your coupons to double Hope that answers some of your questions

              • Laura D.

                NO! No! No! No! Here is the problem, your coupons should fully double to $1.00 each. THAT’S the $4.00!! Sorry, I didn’t see the problem earlier. I assumed you were doubling the coupons you have. So if you have 2 different versions of the $0.50/1 coupon they will all double. If you only have one version of the $0.50/1 coupon, only 4 will fully double up to $1 and the rest will scan at $0.50 each. I hope this clears up the confusion. Good Luck at the store! Oh, one more thing 4 boxes of cereal is $4 off total. Don’t worry you’ll get the hang of it! 🙂

          • Wing

            The $0.50 coupons will double to $1.00. So if you have 8 cereals (2 different varieties), and 8 coupons it’ll be $8.00 off.

            • Marie

              Thank you

    • Turntables

      Coupons at S&S/Giant double so it will be $8 off not $4, making your total $4 before tax. HTH.

      • Marie

        Oh thank you, I did not know that. It will be my first time couponing there.

  • Laura D.

    Did one more deal tonight. 4 LC and 4 HNC – $5! Phew! Nice ending!
