The grocery store Shaws is running a catalina deal right now that worked out very well for me today. If you buy $30 (sale prices, but before coupons are used!) of specified products (all listed in the weekly circular), you get $15 back in catalinas. I got $45.02 worth of groceries ($30 at sale prices) for $21.40 (after coupons), and then I got $15 back in catalinas to be used on my next shopping trip, so I essentially paid $6.40 for 16 items, including spaghetti sauce, chicken broth, rice, dry onion soup mix (I use this when I do pot roasts in the slow cooker), pizza rolls (Nathan loves 'em), and more! I'm very pleased about this deal - it worked well for me even though I didn't have many super amazing coupons for the items I was purchasing. What coupons I did have all doubled, which was great. I may go back to Shaws again and do some more shopping with some of the other items that work for the catalina deal.
Just a heads up for those of you who live near a Shaws!
