First off if you do not know what a catalina is, read my post here.
Buying products that produce a catalina is one of the best ways to get a great deal. They can be a little tricky, you have to buy the exact size and quantity in order for the catalina to print. I thought they were a pain at first, and did not bother doing the stores promo to get them. I have now learned how much money I can save by doing them. I am now in love with catalina deals and hunt for them.
I think the hardest part is the fact that catalian deals are not always a part of the stores ad. Most the time they are the “hidden deal” and word of mouth is the best way to find out about them. I have called the catalina company asking where I could get a list of current catalina offers. They were not able to give me any info. I have also asked the store managers, they are happy to tell me about the catalina offers that they knew about in their store, but they don’t know about most the deals either. Every now and then a piece of paper will print out telling you about an upcoming catalina deal. Like the one I have in the photo above. That is about the only way to find the “hidden catalina offers” so I am asking you to keep your eyes out for them. If you find out about an upcoming catalina deal feel free to pass it along. Here are the current hidden catalina deals I know about in my area.
