    kathytew - call the Catalina Marketing company to explain what happened. In the past they have mailed the coupons to consumers. Here is the number: 1-888-826-8766

    Can anyone tell me what, if anything, you can do if a catalina doesn't print? They told me at the store there was nothing they could do, to call corporate! Thanks for your help.

    Thanks Faye. I will call and have Rachel and my mom call too. What a bummer!

    jdouglas, it was WONDERFUL to meet you and J on Friday at the SWS! Thank you for coming by the booth to chat!

    gumtickler - I believe they ran out of gift cards and that is why they sent them back. You will want to call the 1-800 number misskitty posted, but it's my understanding that they reached the max they planned to give out. It was one of those While Supplies Last deals.

    Mimi, re the list of eVic coupons, I've noticed that if I make an online shopping list from HT's email flyer, the eVic coupons are listed on the bottom if you print it out. As someone else mentioned, I usually email myself the shopping list so I can see it on my smart phone. I am notorious for losing lists!

    Got to attend my first Women's Show at the fairgrounds today where I got to finally meet Faye face to face. She is even sweeter in person than here on the blog, if that's even possible! I was able to get a few interesting coupons walking around too: $5 of $25 from Earth Fare (I think it would qualify as a "competitor coupon" along with a grocery bag and Cabot cheese coupons. Faye also had some great coupons :) I was able to get two tickets for $10 total from the Living Social deal recently, so all in all, it was a good time!

    Whoever posted the pillow pet deal at Rite Aid in Holly Springs, THANK YOU SO MUCH! We finally were able to stop and picked up 2 big pillow pets and 2 smaller ones for $17 total! My girls were psyched and I have two more presents for my nieces! YEAH!

    Thanks so much misskittysbags! I could not tell if the last number of the phone number was an 8 or 6 on my copy of the form. I do plan to call. I just thought it was strange that 2 other people I know received the exact same denial. Rachel and I have checked and doubled checked our entry copies we have and can see no problem. Can't wait to call on Monday during working hours. Thank you!

    Wow, well gumtickler, I'm sorry. I am guessing there might be a customer service number on their website you could call. Since you have copies of all the information you sent them they should be able to help you; or at least explain to you why they decided to deny your rebate.
