Rumor has it that the extremely popular $2 off Tide Pods AND $2 off Gain Flings coupons will be returning in the January 1 P&G inserts!
This is terrific news for HEB shoppers since our P&G catalina promotion will be in full swing that weekend.
In fact, we'll be able to use those coupons and stock up on bags of both brands for just $1.02 each after all discounts!
First things first: if you're not familiar with how catalina deals work at HEB, be sure to go here for more information.
Then check out my suggested deal scenario below:
- Tide Pods Laundry Detergent -- 16-count bags on sale for $4.44.
- Gain Flings Laundry Detergent -- 16-count bags also priced at $4.44.
- Buy four bags of Tide Pods and three bags of Gain Flings for a pre-coupon price of $31.08, which is plenty to trigger your catalina printing at the end of your transaction.
- Use four $2 off Tide Pods coupons and three $2 off Gain Flings coupons, all from the 1/1 P&G inserts.
- Pay $17.08 out of pocket for all seven bags, then receive your $10 catalina for next time.
- Your final price is $7.08 for everything, or just $1.02 each!
- Buy the same seven items listed above.
- Give your $10 Clorox catalina (can be used through 1/3/17) FIRST to drop your price down to $21.08.
- Next, give the seven coupons listed above.
- Pay $7.08 out of pocket, then still receive your $10 P&G catalina to use later in January!
FAIR WARNING: Catalina promotions at HEB are getting more and more popular with couponers, but cashiers (and stores!) aren't always up to speed when a new promotion starts.
So if you want to pick this up, be prepared to follow up with the manager on duty if your catalina doesn't print and/or your cashier isn't familiar with the promotion. I always recommend having a paper copy of the weekly ad with you, since it often features information about the catalina.
It's much easier to get this addressed at the register or immediately after you shop, although you can go back in the next day to talk to a manager if it's necessary. You can also request your reprinted catalina online, although obviously you will have to wait longer to get the new catalina mailed to you.
