    I’ve done this many times at the Redmond, OR store…it is before coupons. While it may not be the deal I thought it would be, can’t beat the price!!! Thanks for the deals!!

  2. Kristi says:

    I had a similar experience getting them to print. Worked great at one store by work, printed just fine and all I bought were babyfood. I went to the two stores nearer my house (30 minutes away) and no cats at either. Yet the cashiers forced it through by giving me the $5 off on the transaction and then at the end the $10 cat printed!! So I don’t know what’s going on. Maybe they fixed it to be after q’s? I can’t figure this one out. I think this is one where you could call Catalina and get your cats no probs. (I’m in Denver BTW- Boulder printed fine, Arvada did not).

    I bought 20 the first time and used 10 coupons (which my safeway rounds up to $1.00, for an even better deal) to make sure I spent $10 without coupons, I ended up getting the $7.00 cat! Meaning that the cat printed before the coupon discount. Now I’m using the rest of my coupons and rolling the cats to buy 10 at a time, which means I only pay tax!! Awesome deal, thanks Krazy Coupon Ladies!!

  4. domonique says:

    The ad cat printed for me so I decided to do this deal…I bought 10 for $10 and used some coupons I had which brought the total down to about $6 and I didn’t get a $5 cat back…then I ran two more orders for this and still no cats…I think some of the systems won’t let you get a cat if the order is below $10 after coupons…I work at safeway and it seems that things like this vary from store to store.

  5. Leah says:

    In Phoenix it worked the first time I did it, but not the second time.

  6. diane says:

    Okay I also live in FAR NOR CAL, I did this deal in one Safeway and it worked fine, I rolled it and did another transaction it worked fine I paid 1.25 for 10 after my $5 cat from 1st transactiion and 5 .75/2 it worked AFTER I used all the coupons, but I went to another store 15 miles away and no cat. WEIRD The manager tried to tell me its limited, I wish stores could just get it together!!

    • emily says:

      How far Nor Cal? I’m in the Bay Area and crossing my fingers that it works for me when I get it together to get to Safeway by myself.

  7. Becca Filley says:

    I have 20 of these coupons and I’m not going to use them. Email me at with gerber coupons in subject if you want them!

  8. Ruth says:

    I’m not finding the coupons. Are they gone?

  9. Cheryl says:

    I tried to this today, same exact 10 2-pack gerber purees for each transaction, $6.25 after coupons. The first transaction didn’t print the CAT, instead the ad announcing the gerber catalina promo, then the next transaction, same exact order, same amount paid, and it printed me $5.00 catalina.

    I wonder what’s going on? Anyone who can answer? I still have a bunch of coupons I wanted to use, but I want to be able to maximize this deal. I have twins and it gets pretty expensive!

    • Diana says:

      Do the safeway cards have “memory”? I wonder if the first time it knew that you had never done the deal so it printed the promo announcement, and the second time, it recognized your card and so it printed the catalina? but then again, the catalina should work whether you use the safeway card or not so really…I DON’T KNOW! :) Did you do the two transactions one right after the other, or during different trips?

      • Cheryl says:

        My hubby was saying perhaps it had to “prep” the system. Never heard of that. I will try the deal again since I do need to stock on baby food and I have another set of coupons here I need to use. I will post later as soon as I get results :)

  10. chrys says:

    just call the catalina company. or i am going to get the hbo cereal and roll that cat with the baby food,and then go back and forth until i am out of my baby food Q’s! just an idea. :)

  11. Becky says:

    I am a little bummed out by this and still have like 15 or 16 coupons for it… if anyone would like them you can email me @

  12. chrys says:

    I did it,got a cat 1st time,tried to roll it to a 2nd time and the cat didnt print either.
    gresham OR

  13. Alison says:

    I just got back from doing this deal. i bought 20 packs, used 10 coupons @ .75/2, and a doubler ($2). paid 10.50, and got a $5 catalina. You have to buy $10 worth AFTER COUPONS for the catalina to print. I rolled the cat and it printed again and again!

  14. Meghan says:

    I was able to do this with 2nd Purees $10- $0.75×5 -$2(doublers) and recieved the cat. I tried again with 1st and 2nd same coupons, added produce to get over $5, used the cat and did not get a cat. Vancouver, WA

  15. Tammy says:

    No CAT for me either. I asked my Safeway and they said it was before coupons…Portland, OR

  16. Sarah says:

    Get this – both my husband and I did the deal. It printed for him in one check out lane & not for me! Maybe the kinds you get are super specific? One of the ones I got was this hawaiian dessert kind (don’t ask me why I got it!) and it rang up on the receipt as “Gerber Dessert” Am wondering if that threw it off

  17. Carolyn says:

    I have done this deal twice and it has worked for me.

  18. Becky says:

    Just got back from Safeway, DIDN’T get a CAT! VERY DISAPPOINTED!

  19. Stacey Arnold says:

    I ordered the coupons today and did it. You have to buy two packages of the food to get the .75 cents off and at my store it had to be 10 dollars after the coupons to get the $5.00 Catalina dollars. Still I think it averaged out for me .30 cents for a package of two which still seemed pretty cheap to me. I may have done it wrong not sure. Was gonna make baby food this time around but with this deal I cound’t pass it up. And the food is good until September of 2011.

  20. Lynn says:

    Did this yesterday, no catalina :(

    • Joanie says:

      Just wanted to let you all know that I physically have the ad from Catalina with the specifics for this deal. The only reason it’s not printing is (1) it’s an error and you can request your catalina, or (2) it’s a regional Catalina. I’m in Nor California and it’s possible that the offer is regional (I’m still betting it’s #1. Nor Cal never gets exclusive offers. We’re usually the ones being left out of regional offers.)

      I scanned an image of the Catalina advertisement with details and added it to the post.

      • Diana says:

        I wanted to check if it may be a regional thing, so I went to my Safeway and bought one gerber food and sure enough, I got the catalina announcing the deal that has been posted here, and also two other catalinas that are gerber food coupons, so at least it should be working in AZ. The reason I wanted to do this, is in case I do the deal and no catalina prints out, I can show them that I got that announcement from that specific store. I would like to know though if the total has to be after coupons, but now that I think of it, all my catalinas have always worked for the price BEFORE coupons…

  21. Brandi george says:

    Tried to do this today and no catalina! :(

  22. carla says:

    Can’t find the RP coupons in all three of my RP inserts from the seattle times. bummer was hoping to donate to the food bank.

  23. Kaui Eiklor says:

    hey everyone. The reason you can’t locate the coupons anymore is because they’re totally out of stock. Apparently they got raided. I ordered mine from another clipping service called All you need to do is click on the icon that says “coupons”, then type into the advanced search “Gerber Puree” and it’ll come up with the coupons. Hurry, though! They only have 35 left in stock!

  24. sandie says:

    Are you using a certain zipcode to get those – I don’t see them.

    Thank you for your help.

  25. mindy says:

    anyone know how long the catalina deal runs for? Thanks!!

  26. JEN says:


  27. Jenn says:

    I can’t locate the coupons for the .75 off 2 anywhere, the link above takes me to cereal only, can you give a little more info to get them?

  28. Leah says:

    Anyone know if this Catalina will be at Kroger or Albertson’s stores too?

  29. Lindsay says:

    Anyone know how long these are good for…like how far out the expiration date is. I would love to stock up but my baby is not due until January so the food would have to be good for at least 6 months…Anyone know?

    • Diana says:

      I don’t know the specifics of the baby food at your store, but baby food in general is good for a long time, a year or more, just check the baby food at your store.

    • diane says:

      I bought some earlier the deal is good untill the day after christmas and the ones I bought today expire in Oct. 2011 so you have plenty of time to use before they expire!!

  30. Amy B says:

    My safeway also had the $10 off $50 coupon in the paper this week add this to some other cat deals and this could be really good!

  31. Nicole J says:

    I finally found some coupons at Danielles coupon paradise. I haven’t used them before! I hope they ship fast :)

  32. Angela says:

    Will you get the catalina on the gerber organic as well?

    • Rebekah says:

      I bought 10 Friday (and then went back on Saturday) and I bought a mix of the organic and the “regular”. I have received Catalina both times.

  33. Chip says:

    Does anyone know how long these keep or what the expiration date is on those that are on the shelf now?

  34. Katie says:

    Do you know how long the catalina will be runnning? I know you listed the sale price as being valid into January. Is the catalina as well?

  35. Mary says:

    I always like using mycouponhunter. She has great customer service and ships quickly.

  36. Rebekah says:

    Last time I ordered from coupon clippers it took a week and a half, don’t know what happened. Hopefully that won’t happen this time, anyone else had bad luck with them? Always had good luck with dede, but theirs were already gone.

    • Jenn says:

      I haven’t used coupon clippers before, but have had good luck on ebay with quick shipments- may cost more, but they’re are usually a lot of options, especially since dede’s is out of stock. Good luck!

  37. Heather says:

    Was it in all RP 11/14 because I just went through mine and didn’t see the coupon. Is it regional? I’m in western WA.

  38. wendy says:

    The Cat is happening at Kroger too.

  39. wendy says:

    Awesome! My baby just had his first jar today and I’ve been putting off buying baby food because it’s so expensive and didn’t know if I was ambitious enough to make my own.

    • emily says:

      Making your own is so fun and easy – I just stocked up on these coupons so we could get bananas. None of my kids will eat a fresh banana mashed up! Plus the little storage containers are great to keep snacks in.

    • Sarah says:

      It really is simple, there are a number of fruits that you don’t even have to cook, but mash/blend. Fresh fruits/veggies are generally cheaper/tastier/healthier than those you buy premade. This was my favorite site:

      I was hoping to pick some of these up for the food pantry at church, but it looks like it was a regional coupon since I can’t find a single coupon in my 3 inserts.. =(

  40. Denise says:

    sweet deal. This stuff really adds up after a while.

  41. Katie Owen says:

    Thanks for the great offer! I just bought 35 coupons! :)

  42. emily says:

    Will Safeway Catalinas roll (is that what it’s called?), meaning if I buy $10 and get a $5 Catalina can I turn around and use that on my next $10 and get another $5 Catalina?

    • Mary says:

      Most of the Safeway cat deals I have done have always rolled. If they don’t roll I call the Catalina comapny and they mail my cat to me!

  43. Brandi George says:

    Is the catalina for use on anything purchased? I’m going to get a bunch to donate to my daughter’s food drive however I don’t want to end up with catalina’s to buy more baby food! :)

  44. Sarah says:

    can it be the baby meats in jars?

    • Krazy Coupon Lady says:

      From the pictures on the Cat that printed out it does not show Meat. You can buy the Jars or 2 packs, On the other hand it does not give any exclusions so Meats might be included. We will see Friday.

  45. Rebekah says:

    And, can you use this catalina with your next purchase of 10 and get another cat?

  46. Mendy says:

    is it spend $10 after the .75/2 coupon is applied or before to get the catalina?!? Anyone know?!?

    • Mendy says:

      Then can you do the same senerio $ get the catalina to do a seperate purchase & get another catalina?!? Just not sure if it has to be a $10 final price or just before the coupons are deducted…thanks!!

  47. Stacey Arnold says:

    What is Catalina? I have one that is just starting up on food and was gonna make some but for that price if I can figure out how to do it I should buy it.

  48. Sarah B. says:

    amazing!!!!!!!!! thank u so much!!!!

  49. Rebecca Filley says:

    So with Oregon doublers this will be a money maker right? Either way this is a great price!

  50. Renee says:

    I wish I had Safeway! :( I just bought a whole bunch at Target for full price. :(

  51. Sarah says:

    is it only the 2-pack gerber food? Can I get the CAT with WIC?
