    I thought you could only use 1 $20 Catalina per transaction

    Great job Michelle, ouch on the milk $4.29 a gallon? In MA you can get the store brand at Market Basket for $2.49. Also Market Basket had $1.00 off coupons on any Frito Lay product taped to the bag, I’m not sure if there’s one in your area. Anyway, awesome job!

    I thought you could only use one $20 Catalina per day

  • Laura D.

    Awesome trip Michelle! I didn’t know we could use 3 $20 in one transaction. Combining the kid book coupon and the meat coupon along with the cats, genius! 🙂 Is the meat coupon still available? Nothing beats free meat, milk and veggies!!!

  • Genie

    I thought you can only use the Pet Reward towards a future purchase of pet food.

    • Michelle T.

      Genie, the Pet Rewards are just on your next order 🙂 like a Cat.

        Thank you, Michelle. I haven’t gotten one in a while so I guess I’m remembering it wrong. Good to know. Thanks again!

  • Michelle T.

    Thanks! Karen, I know, the milk was a lot, but I needed it and used the $1 off Oreos and Milk coupon. Shoprite charges less for milk here.
    Laura, since the Cats didn’t print, they wrote them out as rainchecks and they told me that I could use all 3 at once if I want. And here’s the meat coupon:
    Those steaks were delicious, even better than what we buy at the wholesale clubs! My husband actually wants me to go back for more! (with another coupon, of course) 🙂

    Well planed trip Michelle. Great job. Definitely reflecting Cindy’s training 🙂
