    Roll ’em! Roll ’em! Roll ’em! Roll ’em!!!! Girl you’re the best! I have used all of my catalinas, ECBs and RR’s and have only one free milk cat left! Hahaha! I don’t need much, but I’m gonna hit SuperFresh/A&P and Shoprite for my free Purina’s cat food!

    I love your site and your Tweets! You hit the matchups right on the head and I don’t have to fool around with all of fluff. I don’t need anymore Knorr rice/noodle mixes. LOL.

    I got a$4.00 cat from Solo, a $4.00 cat from buying 2 Chi Chi’s tortillas, 2 Chi Chi’s salsa and a Hormel pepporoni and a $3.00 cat from Shake and Bake. Good week 🙂
    What’s the deal on the Wesson Oil?

  • Jean

    Yesterday I hit up:
    2 Angel Soft 24pk TP, 4 Hellman’s Squeeze Mayo and 4 wishbone dressings: $14 OOP, and got 2 $5 CATs
    A&P: 4 Hellman’s Squeeze Mayo & 4 wishbone dressings (again!), 2 twin packs of london broil, 2 packs of chicken breasts, 1 blue bunny ice cream cones, 4 Sobe Life waters and 3 packs of marcal napkins for $47. I got back a $5 CAT. It was a bit high for me, but I bought a lot of meat/poultry. 🙂

  • Melissa B

    I have to go back for the Solo Catalina deal. 🙂 🙂

  • Regina

    I know this is a stupid newbie question, but are the same catalina deals running at all stores? We don’t have a Pathmark- just a Dillons and Walmart. =/

    • Cindy

      @Regina, The Pathmark & Acme deals are specific to those stores but I believe the Solo deal that I did at ShopRite is available at all stores that have a Catalina machine.

  • Kristin

    can you do 2 solo deals in one transaction or do you have to do 2 separate transactions?

    • Cindy

      @Kristin, I’m not sure if you can do it in 2 transactions. My husband was with me and we did it in 2 transactions more because of the coupons. My Shoprite only allows 4 like coupons and I had 8.

  • Rosanne

    Look at all that stuff! You are a rock star!!

  • Kristy

    Where did u get the solo coupon?

  • kelly

    Cindy can you break down the Acme deal for me? I have a $4 off that I need to use tomorrow and I would like to do what you did. Thanks!
