Did anyone else have this problem?

I did the ziploc container deal twice on Wednesday and did not get the catalinas either time. Is this something I should contact Catalina about, or is this something I should just let go?

Worked @ Crystal Lake 6/5

bought four 4pk containers which are $1.99 each if you buy four and had two $1.50 Qs and received two $2 Cats. $1 for 16 containers...can't wait to tell my mother-in-law that I can even beat the dollar store she goes to.

Thanks for the heads up...

I bought a few this weekend and now have decided to open up the packages so I can stack them better. I have some realllllyyy old traditional tupperware that have bit the dust so these will replace them.
I'm using xs size for spice organization and the large oblongs for Christmas cookies! Hey did you guys see the one with three sections...great for plan ahead meals so everyone can grab a meal while you are out doing what else...more super-coupon shopping.

Dominick's & Catalinas

I've had the same thing happen to me at dominick's. If I hand them a stack of catalinas they tell me to choose which ONE I want to use because they won't accept them all. I asked the cashier why and she said it's because people were using too many from other stores at one time. Aren't they considered manufacturer coupons? Does it matter if I use one or 10? Won't they still get the money for them? Wouldn't you think they would want us to use our catalinas there since they are getting our business? Oh Dominick's...it's a love hate relationship!

The Domonicks in Volo will

The Domonicks in Volo will except more than one Cat if they are in different amounts. I do not understand how they can stay in business. Every time I go there, the parking lot is empty. I even noticed it in Gurnee on Memorial weekend. Jewel was packed and I waited in line for 30 min, but at Dominicks next door, I was out in 5 min. It makes you wonder.

Catalina Question

Can anyone tell me if they are having trouble with Dominicks accepting Catalinas (both not expired and expired)? I was told by two Dominicks stores that I can only use 1 Catalina per transaction when the Catalina itself even states one per purchase. Has anyone had this problem? Has Dominick's changed their policy?

DOMINICKS LIMITS

Yes they have been putting limits on Cats. But not their own!!! I shop at 3 different stores in a 3 miles radius and each one has their own rules. But they all take their Cats.without any limits . I would try and shop at a different D. if you can.

Dominicks Catalina Question

I had 2 $2.00 Dominick's catalinas (from the zip lock deal)and I handed them both to the cashier at the Fox Lake Dominick's today for some items I was buying. She told me I could only use ONE. Nowhere on the catalina does it state only one can be used per transaction. I can see why there were only a few people in the store with such poor customer service. I bet this store will not be open long. Jill, is there a limit on the number of catalinas you can use at checkout?

That seems to be the latest

That seems to be the latest kick at Doms, only accepting one cat per transaction. Maybe we need to break up our transactions into a lot of little $3-$5 transactions just to use them. They make their rules we just have to play by them until eventually they change them or we just have one less chain to shop at.

Just filled out e-comment at Doms website

Recently it seems that there is a new policy of Catalina type coupon acceptance, only one Catalina type coupon accepted per transaction. I have been told this at several Dominick's stores. I believe this is a foolish policy since many times I receive more than one Catalina coupon in a transaction and then I can only use them one at a time at your store? You use Catalina Marketing promotions to get me into your store then chase me away within the same promotions, I'm sorry it just doesn't make sense to me.
Thanfully most of your stores are very close to a Jewel, who in fact will accept as many Catalina Coupons that I can spend.

I used the last of my expired cats yesterday!

I had over $150.00 in expired cats dating back to August 2009, (when I was sick AND had to miss the picnic :( I've been struggling to use them since because I so rarely go to Dom's. Ziplocs did it for me YAY! And I'll be more than happy to use my new cats at Jewel! Bye Bye Dom's!

call or go in...

I am not sure of procedure, but the tags were still up yesterday when I went to Lake Zurich and purchased some ziploc containers saying $2. off 2, the little white and red tags near the price. I got my cats. I think the date was June something for the cat. Sorry, I should have looked better but it is an advertised thing so go for it.

I did both transactions

I did both transactions Wednesday afternoon. I was just wondering if I should call Catalina because this was not an "advertised" Catalina deal.

Didn't get my cats either

when I went on Friday at about midnight. They also gave me a hard time on returning the Ziplocs and all they had to do was a total void since I just purchased it.

If anyone can report whether or not they got it today.. I'd really appreciate it. I really could use more of the large rectangular one for my dog.

Thanks!

midnight

The reason you didn't get your cats (probably) is because you tried it at midnight. The machines go down at about 10-11 for updates. I never try past 10 pm.

Ziploc's contain coupons...what's the max?

I did this CAT twice on Saturday and found more $1.50 off 2 coupons inside so I went back again today. Got my CATS all 3 times. I didn't know you could do six and get $6 back. Is that the max?

It says when you buy 4 or

It says when you buy 4 or more they are 1.99 and on cat sign on the shelf Get $2 for every 2 you buy, so it seems no limit. I just did my second 8 box deal last night 9 PM and it worked fine. But I waited a moment for cats and told her they'll be coming out and she said sometimes they print 30 sec later, after the customer leaves. Maybe that's what happened to some of you. They printed after you left.
