    scoupe28-The Capri Sun catalina deal didn't start until today. If you haven't used any of them, you may be able to return them and then buy them again but you probably used coupons and got the $5.00 of 10 items so I don't know how that would work.

    sbigham, you have to do what works best for your family and if you can still stay under budget, save time and shop at Walmart, then that's great.

    scoupe - here is the website for the Catalina company with info on what to do if you did not get a Catalina you were expecting:

    I just read that the Capri Suns are producing a catalina...I bought 4 @ Krogers yesterday and didn't receive one. I'd there anything I can do to get that?

    Hi cathy5445,

    I found the Kre-o (spelling?) figures at Walgreens at the beginning of January. They were on sale, so it ended up being a really good deal. My nephew loved them.

    I too debate in my mind whether Wal Mart really is the cheapest when you consider gas, time, and the fact that I'm buying things that my family actually eats (not just picking up freebies only because they are free). I've done my big shop at WM the last 2 weeks, have been able to price match items we eat/use and have stayed under my budget. I will swing by HT only for the excellent deals that wind up cheaper than WM. I know some folks here disagree but the time it takes for grocery store prep sometimes isn't worth the time it takes away from my family. That's just what I've figured lately after several years of "cherry picking" deals. Just reevaluating all variables. :)

    I don't know if corporate has fixed anything, but for the last few days my ZVRs have actually been working. I had 7 yesterday and they all came off. I sure hope it is resolved.

    jdouglas~unfortunately my 1.50 catalina did not double at LF today, just a heads up for you or anyone else that was hoping that they would double. This was at the LF off of Ebenizer and Glenwood. I did get the Dove mens body wash which was 5.19 with the 2.00 coupon from yesterday that doubled only paid 1.19 and it came with a bonus trial size deodorant for free!!
