You can break it up for less oop or do a big transaction to save time. Either way it works the same. roll and roll and do transactions until you are done.

I am excited about the upcoming Kroger/Smiths (affiliates) ad. If your store starts their sale on Sundays, you can grab these deals tomorrow. For those of us whose sales run Tues-Wed, this sale will start Wed ( we normally get the same deals the stores that starts on Sunday have). Normally you can roll the Catalina and I am sure there will be no difference. I plan to start off with paying $4 oop get the $5 cat and keep doing transactions of 5 for the items I am planning to get. Sometimes too, you can get more than one cat per transaction. We will not know until the sale start, example if you buy 10 items at once will we get 4 $5 catalina.

All these deals are stock up price so grab what you can.


Note, my stores do not double, but if you live somewhere that does then your totals will be lower where applicable.

  1. My Kroger finally restocked on the mac n cheese yesterday. The shelves were bare at 3 krogers I went too. Actually got a rain check and they said they would still honor the $5 back so I might save that for next weeks sale if this doesn’t rollover. My local store has however put a 4 catalina limit on each transaction. So I will have to go during lunch to the one close to work. Thanks Vetta for the postings, you make my couponing super easy!!

    • I just read someone said they put a sign here at one of the stores in Vegas. I guess people were getting too much or something. Yes, just make different trips. 🙂 You are welcome! Glad to help!

    • Each store will vary when it comes to transactions and such. My store doesn’t have a limit. Just let the cashier or one of the workers standing at the front that you have multiple transactions if there is someone who can help you so you do not hold up the line. Thats what I always do and they open a new lane for me. As to a set limit I haven’t heard of that, its not in their policy so it would be up to the store. HTH and good luck 🙂

      • My Kroger’s is now telling me that i can only use 5 catalinas and/ or 10 manufacturer coupon in a 24 hr period….. Now are they making up there own rules?? They have kinda rude to me about it.

  2. so excited for this….i know it’s bad for you but i love that mac n cheese (taste better than the kraft one)…one of my guilty pleasures…hehe

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THAT YOU DO VETTA!!! you are too awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • You are most welcome! I am glad to hear good reviews on the mac and cheese. I haven’t tried them yet but I will for free. 🙂

      • actually i want to note that i put my ‘touches’ on the mac and cheese and add other flavorings to it like herbs and spices… =)

  3. One quick question, for the Betty Crocker Fruit snacks, it is buy 5/$10. Will $5 deduct from the 10 after I buy it, making it only 5/$5? Or will the price still be $10?

    • It would be $5/5 after the catalina, or less if you have coupons to use. So you basically pay $10 and get back $5 or roll your cat on this deal. HTH

  4. Hi…I live in Arizona and we have Fry’s with the Wed-Tues ads. I am not seeing it. The promotion that are running here are “Cart Buster Saving Event”, “Crazy 8’s” on fresh produce and Buy 10 get 5 more free (Mix & Match. I’ve also noticed that the last couple of Fry’s Stores i’ve been to have not been giving catatlinas… I’m going to try this and cross my fingers, hopefully it’ll work. I’ll update and let you know.

    • I’m in AZ too, and the ad does not make anything clear about the 5 for $5 ONYO. I went today though and the shelves are clearly marked in regards to what given back. It says in blue next to the price buy 5 save $5. I gave it a trial run with 5 aaand it worked beautifully!

  5. Omg!..Thank you so much for all the great deals. I usually dont coupon when buying food because I live in Cali and our coupons dont double here and the coupon value are usually so low I dont see much of a savings. But when I saw this I was excited!..I went out today and I got in on the deals and let me tell you Im not done yet this is just the first Thank you for all your hard work!

    • You are more than welcome. I just came back from my first run too. I should stop but its so awesome I think I am addicted to this sale for the next 7 days…:) I am happy you got some deals!!

  6. I was wondering also if this sale is regional? I called my kroger’s and asked if they are having the 5 for 5 deal and the manager said she didn’t think so..

  7. I am fairly new to this couponing thing, but the add I got in the paper today did not have this 🙁 is it regional? I am in VA

  8. Thanka for the heads-up vetta! My ads run Wed-Tues for my affiliate so I’m hoping to jump on this!! I did try to click the rebate link under “Pillsbury Toaster Strudel, Frozen, Select Varieties, 6 ct, or Breakfast Entree, 7.4 to 8 oz, 2/$4” but it was an error? Help ya girl out.
