I know many of you are just getting into the Albertson’s “Buy $30, Get $15 Cat” promo and have some questions about catalinas printing and also with stock.
First, please read my previous post about making sure your catalinas to print. The third point I make is that cashiers, managers and the Catalina company usually blame your use of manufacturer’s coupons for cats not printing. This is not true. It is because the catalina machine is not working properly.
Case in point, my friend Kate did a transaction today at the 181st & Glisan store and did not use any manufacturer’s coupons. Her total was $30. The cats did not print. The cashier indicated that they had been having problems with the cats printing all day.
Interestingly, I did a transaction at the same store earlier with manufacturer’s coupons and my cats printed. If your cats don’t print, be sure to draw a manager’s attention to the problem. You can also ask the cashier before your transaction if the cats are printing properly.
Second, I know that most of the eastside stores in Portland are fairly well-stocked with Ragu, All detergent, cereal and regular Skippy.
Most stores are out of Skippy Natural and Suave Kid’s Shampoo. If you don’t find an item you’re looking for, be sure to ask an employee if they have additional stock in the back. I did that on Monday and was able to get more All detergent.
Leave a comment with your store’s stock so others can be more efficient with their shopping. Of course, we all have to promise not to clear out a store!
