  1. Shannon J says:

    Does anyone know if current, monthly catalina lists are still being posted? Miss those! So helpful!

  2. Krissy says:

    At my local Alberstons in Nampa, my cashier saved a catalina for a free Simply Apple. I think it was just one purchase of another one but I’m not sure.

  3. Rebekah says:

    Has anyone tried the gerber baby food for Dec. and got a cat?

  4. Karla says:

    Thanks for the email address and information, Marianne! I am in Texas and got the catalina to print at Albie’s for Betty Crocker fruit snacks ($1 off), and the Grands biscuits (money-maker if you count the $3 cat!). I didn’t get the Pampers scenario to print either of the $5 ones. It just printed one $1 off.

  5. Marianne says:

    I’ve noticed some of you aren’t getting your Catalinas. I had the same thing happen last month. I don’t know why the link isn’t working now, but I do remember it said that the stores are not informed about what Catalinas have been programmed for the month. So be nice to the cashiers; they really don’t know what should or should not print.

    Send your email to

    1. Give them the #’s listed after the time on your receipt
    2. Frequent Shopper card # if used
    3. What it is that you purchased & how many (that should have triggered the Catalina)
    4. A scanned copy of your receipt

    I did all of that and a week or two later they sent me a nice letter along with the Catalinas that didn’t print.

    I hope this helps.

  6. Lisa says:

    tonight I received a $1.00 ONYO CAT for purchasing 2 cartons of almond breeze milk.

  7. Sonja says:

    As of 10/31, the Kikkoman catalina appears to be dead. Bought 2 at Albie’s and it did not print. Just FYI.

  8. Chica says:

    I found a save $2 on your next order cat left on the printer. It said it was compliments on Tylenol. Anyone know what triggered it? I used it, since I was in self checkout. :)

  9. Amy says:

    My cat for my 5 pillsbury grands didn’t print either today. Im in montana. :-(

  10. Donaca says:

    Your link to “what to do when your catalina doesn’t print” isn’t working.
    I went to ALbertsons today and got the Pillsbury Refrigerated Grands or Grands Jr Biscuits – purchased 5. ANd I purchased 5 fiber one bars…neither one printed a catalina. I don’t know what to do.

  11. Liza says:

    Thank you for the update! Where do you get the Catalina list?

  12. dani says:

    I am in New Mexico. I did the McCormick extracts. Three of them, but did not get a Cantina. Are there just certain states that this applies to? I did get a Yogurt Cantina last week.

  13. christy says:

    Is anybody in Texas? I would love to be able to compare with somebody close to me. Last weekend my Albertsons had a coupon for $30 off a purchase of $200 or more. I never saw any posts about that, but I did take advantage of it. After using all my other coupons my total savings on that trip was $200.38!

    • Heather says:

      I am in Texas and I saw that coupon. I didn’t post about it because I thought the coupon said ‘after’ all other coupons are used, then you could use the $30/$200. I’d rather use it first!

      • christy says:

        It did, but I went shopping with my mom and we used all our coupons first then used the $30 off and split the savings. On the bottom of the receipt, the savings was $200.38! We did good!

  14. Katy says:

    I know my Albertson’s runs different ads and deals than Joanie and Heathers do, but what about Catalinas? Are they the same nationwide or does it depend on the area?

    • Tina says:

      There are some that run nationwide, but for the most part they are regional. For instance, Pillsbury had one in my area that ended on 10/3. I believe, from what I’ve read on other blogs, it started on 10/4 in the Seattle area and goes through 10/31. I’ve also gotten a cat for Idahoan potatoes and fleischmann’s yeast that aren’t listed in this list. I don’t know the dates for either.

  15. Ellie says:

    @Penny. I am also new to all this as well & I didn’t see a “CAT” for Propel but I did see an ad that if you buy 10 Gatorade you get 5 Propel free. It’s 10 for 10 on the ad I saw.

  16. DARLA says:

    do you know if the propel catalina will still be printing next week? I got one for $2 for buying 9 propel at Albertsons. Can you let me know on this?

    • woo says:

      I would love to know if there is a CAT printing for the Propels. There was one a few weeks ago at Kroger/Fred Meyer.

    • woo says:

      I was able to receive the CAT and keep rolling it from one transaction to the next. YEAH 10 Propel for 1.15(including tax). Stock up time for me!

      • penny says:

        Ok, am really new to this site. So am trying these. Tried the propel water at albertsons, it didn’t work. I even asked the cashier, he gave me the deer in the headlights look. What do I do? It also happened to my mom and my sister. No CAT???

        Thank you for all of your posts!:)

  17. Kari says:

    when is the CHEX MIX / SODA cat over? can I still buy chex mix and get a cat?

  18. Tina says:

    The Hamburger/Chicken/Tuna helper cat I got today said Buy 3 get $1.50, Buy 4 get $2.00, Buy 5+ get $3.00 off your next hamburger, chicken or tuna purchase. These values are different than the post.

  19. Karensa says:

    I bought 5 lunchables last week and didn’t get a cat, should I contact them?

  20. amy says:

    I just bought 5 pillsbury Sweet Moments desserts, and I received a $3.00 Catalina back to use on my next transaction! This wasn’t one of the items listed on your catalina list for Pillsbury, so it was a nice surprise! Shopped at Missoula Mt. Albertsons

  21. Jennifer says:

    Purchased 12 Knorr Rice Sides sunday 3 different transactions of 4 with doubles and 1.oo off two (hanging coupon) and there was NO cat that printed

  22. Jackie says:

    The Arrowhead water CAT didn’t print for me today. The cashier told me she hadn’t heard about this CAT, so they did nothing.

  23. Kim says:

    A couple other Albertsons catalinas:

    Buy Tyson Frozen Fully Cooked Bagged products or Tyson Any’tizers Bagged snacks between 9/13/2010 and 10/10/2010 and save up to $4.00 on a future order with coupon
    Buy 2 and get $2.00
    Buy 3 or more and get $4.00

    Buy and Fleischmann’s yeast strip and get $0.50 off a future order with coupon.
    Buy and Fleischmann’s yeast jar and get $1.00 off a future order with coupon
    Offer good from 9/6/10 – 10/3/10

  24. Nikki says:

    My CAT did not print when I bought 5 Kraft items and your link to “Your CAT did not print? See what to do HERE” was incorrect. Can you tell me what I should do to receive my CAT? Thanks.

  25. cheaptalker says:

    bought 5 boxes of tampax tampons and got a catalina for free playtex tampons. Anyone know if you can buy one box and still get the Cat to print out?

    • Michelle says:

      Yes, I bought 3 boxes of Tampax in 3 separate transactions and I got 3 Catalinas for free boxes of Playtex.

  26. Keri says:

    I’m in SoCal. I bought 2 scrubbing bubbles toilet cleaning gels at ALBERTSON’s and got a $2 CAT from scrubbing bubbles. They are on sell for $3.29 and there is a B1G1F Q in the 8/1 SS. Plus I have quite a few $1 off and .55 off Q’s to go with it (plus a double Q). Sweet MM Deal!
    I don’t know when it ends, last time I did it was 8/6. I also don’t know if it’s a buy 3 get $X.XX, buy 4 get $X.XX or if other scrubbing bubble products work… if anyone knows I’d love more info.

  27. Kien says:

    FYI, the Scott catalina deal requires the purchase of both the 12-pack bath tissues & 8-pack paper towels to get the $3 catalina.

    • Liza says:

      I bought 2 arrowhead water packs and got $2 catalina.
      Neva, you should have got 2 kikkomans.

      • Neva says:

        I read about the error on the Scott tissue and found out I had to buy the paper towls too…I just took the tissue back. I emailed about the Capri Sun and they are sending me the cat. Totally missed the buy two on the kikkomans!

  28. Ashley says:

    I tried the Capri sun and the cat didnt print, I called the cat company and they said I didnt buy the right ones, but they couldnt tell me which ones I needed to buy

  29. Jennifer says:

    Tried the Capri Sun one today too. It didn’t print for me either!

  30. Neva says:

    I tried the scott, Capri sun, and kikkoman cat deals and none printed. I bought three Capri sun, 12roll Scott, and one kikkoman. Not sure what I did wrong but I will be emailing.

  31. Rachel says:

    Just wanted to let the Southern California Krazy shoppers know that the Albertson stores have booklets with doublers in the last page. Prego sauce and avocados are coming out free with doublers.

  32. CathyB says:

    I just read on another web site that now only the Tampax and Always products are triggering the cat. Not sure if it is true, but thought I would pass it on.

  33. Kara says:

    I just went into the Albertsons on Cole (Boise) and bought 3 Secret deodorants. The Catalina did NOT print. Tried to figure out what was going on at service desk but they didn’t have a current list with this Catalina on it. Just decided to returned the items I bought because not a good deal without the Cat. Is it a specific type of Secret? Any ideas?

  34. Lorna says:

    I just printed up the new-to-me online form for a $10 rebate from P&G when you buy $30 worth of the following P&G products: PANTENE, OLAY,VENUS,COVERGIRL,SECRET. It runs from 6/30/2010 to 9/17/2010 and must be postmarked by 10/1/2010. So got lots of time. This rebate is called Back to School Rebate 192-157
    P.O. Box 900084
    El Paso, TX 88590-0084
    Since I use SECRET deordant any way, I could buy at least three (probably more with the 75 cent coupon from RP 7/4 Sunday insert exp 7/31). Secret is on sale until 7/20/2010. Doing this I could get both the $5.00 catalina from Albertsons but to save the printed receipt add it to others for things like PANTENE( have lots of $2 coupons for that), and COVERGIRL or any of the other items listed above and get that nice $10 rebate check. Just sharing information…

  35. Sonja says:

    I just called the catalina company and they said that Herbal Essence is not included in the PG promo. Just FYI. I tried this on both the trial size and the full size at the Portland Albertsons and did not get a catalina to print. I returned the trial sized right away and then tried again with the full sized. No luck.

    • Tasha says:

      I got the Cat the other day on the trial size! Sorry to hear that It didn’t work for you! I am in Rexburg ID

    • Brittaney says:

      Sonja, i was able to do the herbal essences travel size twice and got a cat both transactions, and i did it once with the full size and got the cat. Not sure why it didn’t work for you!

  36. ms.brilliantblonde says:

    I haven’t heard anything about this, so I thought I better let y’all know about an unexpected CAT I got yesterday (7/04). I bought 5 Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters, the peanut variety, and received a CAT for FREE 24 pk. of water! Plus, the Peanut Nut Clusters were on clearance for 2.00 and I had (5) 1.00/1 Nut Clusters IPs! And, I was able to get the Arrowhead water that has the 4 bonus water bottles! :)

    P.s. The CAT said it was courtesy of General Mills, no other information provided.

    • ms.brilliantblonde says:

      I forgot to mention, I live in Spokane, WA and received the CAT at the Albertsons on Nevada. :)

  37. Hapee says:

    On the Arrowhead Water Catalina, what size of water do you need to purchase the catalina? I bought 4 of the .5 L 6 packs this week and I didn’t get a catalina. Thanks!

  38. Desirae says:

    How do you find out about these catalina offers? I bought 5 boxes of General Mills fruit snacks today so according to this post I should have recieved a $3.50 cat, but I only got a $1.50. The manager at Albertsons didn’t know anything about the catalina offers….

  39. Neva says:

    The store told me it was only certain products during specific weeks…like the CHILL promo…I missed out on a couple catalina too…

  40. Angelique says:

    You dont have dates printed for the dairy catalina… I was at Albertsons last night and bought 5 participating items (3 dairygold cottage cheese and 2 land o lakes spreadable butters) and no catalina printed… My transaction was at 12:02am so I was wondering if the promo expired at midnight???

  41. Rachel says:

    Cheap Pedialyte today if you want to stock up! Yesterday at Rexburg Albertsons I bought 4 Pedialytes (3 liquid and 1 box of frozen pops). They were 5.79 each, so I used two 1.50/1 coupons, two BOGO coupons, and received two unexpected catalinas, each for 1.50 off my next visit. After coupons and catalinas it was only $5.58 for four Pedialyte products! I don’t know when the catalina ends, but BOGO coupons expire today.

  42. Kandice says:

    I also got a preview today for the BC snacks at Albies. Woot woot! We’re already running out!

  43. Jennifer says:

    I got a preview for the Betty Crocker fruit snacks at Albertsons, so yes is should work.

  44. Collette says:

    The General Mills Fruit Snacks CAT is printing in Boise ID.

  45. Liz Busby says:

    I got an additional $2 cat when I bought 3 promise spreads as part of my buy 5, get $5 cat. Dunno if this is regional or what, but the extra $2 said from Promise spreads.

  46. Suz says:

    I got a printout for a Catalina coming up 5/30-7/1/2010… purchase 5 participating dairy items in a single transaction and recieve a $5 coupon to use oyno.

  47. Norma says:

    Also, their jello and pudding 4 pack is 10 for $10 and if you spend $25 you get $10.00 Catalina.

  48. Norma says:

    I bought 8 Totinos pizza yesterday at albertsons and paid $1.69 each and got back $5.00 Catalina.

  49. Celeste says:

    Just got a new cat update starting April 23 through May 15, 2010 buy any Post cereal 10oz or larger save up to $4 off your next order. Buy 4 get $3 cat buy 5 or more get $4 cat

  50. Kandice says:

    Has anyone tried the ziploc catalina with the zip and steam bags? With doublers today they would be $1.19, so with the rebate it’s a pretty great deal, if the catalina still works.

  51. Suz says:

    Just thought I would point out (since I was surprised by it) that the $3 cat for cosmetics at Albertson’s is for $3 off your next COSMETICS order.

  52. rattriffic says:

    kelly…yes you need to buy the cereal then you buy the milk with your coupon:-)

  53. Katie Martin says:

    Is it any post cereal or what is considered post select?

  54. Kelly Walston says:

    Hi, I am totally new to Albertsons. I tried to do the buy 7 kelloggs and get 3 gal free milk, but the milk didn’t ring up free so I canceled the purchase. If I had bought the 7 cereals would a cantina have printed out for the milk??? Thanks.

  55. lynn says:

    March 30, 2010
    I’m just wondering if the betty crocker potato catalina is running at Albertson’s like it has been at Smith’s. and how bout Fred Meyer? I’m in Idaho.

  56. Teri says:

    I’ve bought McCormick spices twice in the past week at Albertson’s and there wasn’t a CAT printing. I even asked the store personnel this morning who knew nothing about it. Still a good deal with $1/1 coupons and doublers. I’m still happy, but the CAT would have been nice as I had planned on reducing the cost of Saffron with the CAT’s.

    • Teri says:

      I’m retracting my post…stupid me! I just read the Catalina info on another post and saw that it is for FOOD COLORING/EXTRACTS. I think I confused it to also be spices because my printables were for either/or.

  57. Heather C. says:

    Quite a few of the Catalinas didn’t work for me today (I’m in Idaho) — the cream cheese one, the Cover Girl one and the McCormick one. They reimbursed me $3 for the CoverGirl one because it was posted in their store. The others ones I was just out of luck. I guess they all don’t work in all areas. :(

    • Jennifer says:

      Same thing for me in Southeast Idaho – and the $3 Covergirl catalina ad was posted in the store by the makeup, but, like you when I asked they did give me the $3 credit. The Cream cheese also did not work.

  58. nikki says:

    the cream cheese cat is not available in this region, Mt. the guy called backed and confirmed it is not in all regions. Thanks for all the updates.

  59. shannon says:

    I got a catalina last week that was for 20% off my purchase at payless shoes! Any ideas what triggered that?

  60. Rosa says:

    Hi, I was just wondering. Are catalina’s a national event? For example, would my catalina printing Price Choopper have these deals? Thanks so much for clarifying this.

  61. alexis says:

    The cream cheese catalina didn’t print for me this morning.

  62. Stacy says:

    Do you know if the Kelloggs CAT is valid for the Albertons LLC that we have in Colorado?

  63. lynn says:

    fyi.. there is an upcoming Kleenex at Shaws – we usually have most of the same as Albies!

  64. sarah says:

    I can confirm the Kikkoman at Albies. I was happy to receive one last week when I bought 4 bottles with doubles, making them free,with the cat, a $2 profit!

  65. Heather says:

    Amber, I hadn’t confirmed the Kikkoman catalina at Albertsons, have you??

    Also, I haven’t seen the Yoplait Cat at Albies. Anyone else know?

  66. I saw at safeway that if you bu 20 yoplait yogurts you get 2$ back. Do you know if this would work at albies too? There is also the soy sauce one right?

  67. Joe says:

    Albertson ad tommorrow has # doubles in it.

  68. Lisa B. says:

    How do you find out about Catalina offers? My local store rarely seems to adversise them and it’s only if I happen to purchase something that triggers the “ad” coupon that I’m aware of them. Your list is great but my grocery store is not included.

    • Heather says:


      We find them from many different places.
      1. In store. Many times while I am shopping I will get a preview print out… Or my checkers will save them for me!
      2. Readers email us if they get a preview.
      3. Forums. Slick Deals and Hot Coupon World have threads just for catalinas!
