Pasta Overboard

FYI - almost forgot, there will be four coupon inserts this Sunday - two SS's, one RP and one P&G.
Pathmark - today was the last day of this sale, sorry for posting so late
  • 6 Kraft barbeque sauces $0.77 each, used four $1 coupons and got back $3 catalina for buying six (this deal will probably show up in various supermarkets soon so keep an eye out) = $2.38 profit
  • 4 Softsoap hand washes $0.77 each, used four $0.35 coupons (4/26 SS) = $0.28 or $0.07 each
  • Total was $0.92

Second order

  • 8 boxes San Giorgio pasta $0.77 each
  • 2 Softsoap hand washes $0.77 each, used two $0.35 coupons (4/26 SS) = $0.14 or $0.07 each
  • Used $3 cat from first order, total was $3.24

What a mess! When I picked up the pasta, one box was not sealed shut, so ALL the pasta came pouring out all over the shelves and floor. Spaghetti everywhere! I was so embarassed! A store employee was right there stocking the shelves and he chuckled, said it wasn't a problem and cleaned it up. I thanked him profusely and walked away, cheeks a-flaming with embarassment.


  • 2 packages canvas totes $5 each
  • Used $10 RR, total was $0.70

Did you buy these monitors last month too? There's a rebate inside the box. I didn't bother sending away for it because the companies usually won't honor the rebate when there are promos like this one (they were free after EB's at CVS). I read on HCW that someone did send the rebate in and got it back! So I'm going to root around for these receipts and send these off (one rebate in my name, second in DBF's). Worse case scenario, I'm out two stamps. Best case, I'll profit about $20.

The BBQ sauce deal will be at Shop Rite starting sunday

Quick question for you. I go to the Pathmark in Port Chester, NY. I did two transaction on tuesday. Each transaction had 4 Softsoaps and 6 Kraft BBQ sauces. I didn't receive a catalina for either purchase.

I've been reading on multiple message boards about the catalinas but it was not advertised in my flyer or in the store. I emailed customer service and they said there was nothing they could do because the catalina deal was not advertised. I'm feeling like I'm getting jipped my $6 in catalinas.

Any advice?

I thought I saw that on HCW. :)

Hmm, that's odd. I wonder if its because you're in NY and I'm Jersey? A lot of times these catalinas deals aren't in the circulars and CS may not be aware of them either. I usually read about them on HCW and they usually are posted by someone who got a catalina with the details of the deal. It is frustrating. Are you sure the catalina printers were on and functioning when you shopped? You could contact the catalina company directly (I think there's a phone # on They usually have the details on what deals are running in which stores. Good luck!!

I think I will try calling the Catalina company on Monday. It's just hard for me to prove anything since the deal was never advertised, but I thought all Pathmark stores would have the same catalina deals, hopefully :)
