Here's a terrific deal to snag at HEB on Suave Hair Care when the $5 Unilever catalina promotion begins on Wednesday, January 25!
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:
- Suave Essentials Shampoo or Conditioner -- 30 oz bottles priced at $1.94 each, with $2 off 2 yellow coupons available in stores starting 1/25 (must buy one Suave Essentials AND one Suave Styler in order to use coupon.)
- Suave Max Hold Non‑Aerosol Hairspray -- priced at $2.94 each.
- Buy two shampoos, two conditioners, and four hairsprays for a pre-coupon price of $19.52.
- Use four of the $2 off 2 yellow coupons.
- Pay $11.52 out of pocket for all eight items, then still receive your $5 catalina to use later in February.
- So that's like a final price of $6.52 for everything after all discounts, or just 82 cents each!
Now, if you have a $3 off $10 Colgate catalina to use (we can earn them until January 24), you could do this deal instead:
- Buy all eight items for a pre-coupon price of $19.52.
- Give your $3 catalina coupon FIRST to knock your price down for $16.52.
- Next, use four of the $2 off 2 yellow coupons.
- Pay $8.52 out of pocket for all eight bottles, then still get your $5 catalina to use later in February!
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.
