Find for the week.....

I read Crystal at Money Saving Mom every day. I love to hear about her shopping trips and how much she is able to purchase with only $35 (well now $40) dollars a week. One of the things that her grocery store allows her to do, is to use a catalina (sometimes known as register rewards) on her groceries. For instance she can use a Walgreens RR on her grocery bill.

Having just taken advantage of several of the Walgreens Regsiter Rewards deals this week, I thought I would check at my favorite grocery store to see if we could use our $4.00 off Register Rewards there. Answer...yes I sure can! One per transaction. So I will be making several smaller trips over the next few weeks to use up some of my catalinas before they expire!

Wow! That's great news! I tried to get the RR for the shampoo, but they were wiped out. I guess that's what I get for waiting until Friday. Thanks for sharing.

So, one RR per/Publix transaction? I have a friend who tried it today (Tampa, FL) and the manager at Publix said absolutely not. Hmmmmm.

Christy- This was for my store in TN. I know Publix has different regions and that in some parts of Florida they do not double coupons at Publix at all. I was at the register and they took my coupons (very friendly) and said the would have to get a manager's input. I felt bad holding up the line, but I would rather do things above board and "know" for sure that we are allowed to use them. I hope they continue to allow it, and that it doesn't become more restrictive. I'm bummed about your friend though in FL. We are going to be visiting family in FL, and I planned on saving one RR to try in the Publix at their store. lol! I'm also going to see about those coupons....and no doubling.

I want to add too, that before I went through the line... my husband checked with CS the evening before by showing them a coupon. They did allow it, but the next day I think a cashier unfamiliar with them wanted to check with a manager. So, we checked and doubled checked it. lol! As I said, I hope they keep allowing it, because it can help with grocery savings.

That's great! I never even tried my grocery store for the RRs. But I finished them all yesterday at Walgreens. I bought paper towels, batteries, soda, water, diapers and medicine we needed. It is really nice to know that we won't be spending any of our money on these things for a while.
