The GM coupons say at the top "Do not double or triple". Will Albertson's still use a doubler on these?

Cathy said...

Will depend on your cashier/store. If I understand correctly, the manufactures put that there because they won't reimburse for the double amount on those coupons. Since Albertsons is footing the bill for these "doubles", it doesn't affect the manu at all. But I am aware there have been some that won't and some that will.

You need to get 8 boxes of Mac N Cheese to use 2 Q's of buy 3 get 1 free. Total four boxes done twice in the transaction.

Nikki - my bad! I've fixed it. I think I still had my capri sun/mac n chs scenario in my head! :)

My Catalina for milk didn't print after I bought six boxes of participating cereals. Any suggestions?

Cathy said...

Julie - You should have received 2 milk cats. Double check the sizes as they have two different sizes on sale of each of the GM cereal. Some are a part of the redbox deal (and marked $2), and then these are marked at $2.49 with the "mix and match" tag on them (They are part of the epic promo). I also have the sizes listed above. If you purchased the right sizes, I would first try your store manager (or maybe even someone at customer service), they will usually grab the items and rescan to see if they can get the cats to print out. Worst case scenario, you can call the catalina company. Phn #'s are: 1-(888) 322-3814 or 1-888-8COUPON (1-888-826-8766). Good luck!

Went to two different Albies here in Caldwell and NO milk cats. I bought the 4 boxes of cinnamon toast crunch within my epic purchase and got a redbox. I also did the 3 boxes of multi-grain cherrios on the redbox list and NO milk cats. I was told by management at both stores that that ended on Tuesday. :(

Cathy said...

Ingard - Sounds like you got the wrong size. The ones that are a part of the redbox promo are a different size than the one's in the Milk promo. I did it 3 times on Wednesday at the 5&O with no prob. The redbox promo ones are:

Cinnamon Toast Crunch 12.8 oz
Cocoa Puffs 11.8 oz
Cookie Crisp 11.25 oz
Golden Grahams 12 oz
Honey Nut Cheerios 9 oz
Multigrain Cheerios 9 oz

The ones for the Milk are:
Cinnamon Toast Crunch 17 oz
Lucky Charms 16 oz
Cocoa Puffs 16.5 oz
Trix 14.8 oz
Reeses's Puffs 18 oz
Nut Clusters 5 oz.
