If you are new to couponing and frugal grocery shopping, you may be new to Catalinas. These are the machines at the register that generate coupons. The coupons are nice, but the promotions sponsored by various companies through Catalina are what make these machines fantastic.
For instance, two weeks ago my local grocery store was offering a promotion with Kraft cheese. Buy 5 bags of Kraft shredded cheese and receive a Catalina for $5.00 off of your next purchase. Like most families, we use quite a bit of cheese in our house, and combined with a sale and super double coupons, this made for some very inexpensive cheese. Great! But....
When I made my purchase, the Catalina didn't print. What to do? A quick web search directed me to the phone number of Catalina Marketing, 1-888-8coupon. I called, gave my information to the representative and received my coupon in the mail today. Delightful!
So, if ever you fail to receive a coupon when you have purchased the qualifying items, don't be afraid to contact Catalina Marketing.
