There are rumors being posted on some coupon blogs about backlash from Catalina marketing as a result of TLC’s Extreme Couponing show.  The article(s) written suggest that Catalina checkout coupons may become limited through shopper cards, only available with strict quantity limits and no longer available nationally.
