I know not everyone gets the Sunday Newspaper Coupon Inserts.  And although I REALLY encourage everyone to do that, I wanted to show you guys what I did today at Smith’s with only 4 printable coupons.  No coupon inserts used at all.

The cashier let me know that the $3.00 Catalina that is printing out for the Daytona 500 Mega Event will not print out, if you use the same catalina from a previous purchase.  I’m not sure if that is entirely true.  However, if you don’t want to take the chance, don’t split your transactions and try to roll your Catalinas from one purchase to the next. Just make one big purchase and get a huge stack of $3.00 Catalinas afterwards.  Then, you can use them on your next purchase on items that aren’t part of the promotion.  It all ends up to work the same.

My store was really stocked so I was able to purchase big quantites of different items to add to my stockpile.  Here is what I purchased:

15 Boxes of Hefty One Zip Bags– all different sizes (ended up being only $.89 each after Catalina!)
10 Bottles of Kraft BBQ Sauce– All different flavors (ended up being only $.39 each  after Catalina!)
6 Cans of Chunky Soup  (ended up being $.36 each after Catalina)
5 2 Liters of Bargs, Sprite and Country Time Lemonade (ended up being $.66 each after Catalina!)
1 5 Pack of Macaroni and Cheese (ended up being only $1.89 for all 5 boxes after Catalina)
2 Totinos Pizzas (ended up being only $.28 each after Catalina!)
Used the $1.00 off Macaroni Coupon
Used 2 of the $1.00 off 3 Chunky Coupons
Use the $.75 off 2 Totinos Coupon

Total receipt ended up being $39.72 (including Tax)
But then I got 4 $3.00 Catalinas I can use next week at Smiths’!
Total cost for 39 items? $.74 each! 

And that was done with just knowing what to purchase and a few printable coupons.  Anyone and everyone who has a Smith’s store can go and do what I just did too!

  1. >I bought 10 Gatorade and then did a separated transaction and bought 10 more Gatorade and I got a catilina both times!

  2. >What is a Catilina?

  3. >I'm glad you don't have to seperate your groups of 10 to get all the catalinas. I don't like doing multiple transactions, I'd rather get 4 $3 Catalinas at the end of one transaction. Thanks for letting us know that that works 🙂

  4. >Look on the sidebar and click on the "catalinas" link and it will tell you all about it.

  5. >Mine worked as well, I started with 10 Gatorade and used that catalina for the next transaction and it went just fine.

  6. >I did three transactions and rolled my $3.00 Catalina every time, worked like a charm. I spent $28.06 total which included 30 items, plus milk, bananas, apples and grapes. Great day at Smiths.
