  • Morning Coffee: Catalina came through

    At the end of last month, I bought six cans of Grands! biscuits at Ralphs, because I was supposed to get a $4 Catalina coupon that would have made the deal a small moneymaker. But the Catalina didn’t print. I didn’t realize it until after I’d left the store, so I called Catalina at (877) 210-1917 and gave the rep some information from my receipt, along with my name and address. It took about two weeks, but I received my $4 off coupon yesterday, so it definitely pays to take the time to follow through on these things.

    Residents of states with a Kroger store (not a Kroger affiliate) can get a free sample of Orville Redenbacher Cheddar Cheese Popcorn. (Via Moms Need to Know.)

    Bargain Briana has this week’s Marsh deals.

    Just a heads up – I’ll have another giveaway coming later today. Posting a whole bunch of giveaways at once is not my first choice, but they’ve all been a little time-sensitive.

    And speaking of giveaways, thanks to Mindi of Moms Need to Know for picking me as the winner of a Seventh Generation gift pack!
