  1. So dose this mean we are getting doublers on Sunday?

  2. CHECK OUT FRUGALCHICLIVING.ORG by Crysal. She said we are going to have a catalina to go along with the Quaker sale (Starts on Friday)!! WAHOO!

  3. so if I buy 5 oatmeals do I get the instant $3.00 savings AND the $3.00 catalina???

  4. JonnaBeth says:

    What state is this for? I’m in Arizona, will it be the same for me?

    • This is the ad for Northwest stores (ID, OR, WA, parts of UT). I’m not sure how AZ compares… is it usually fairly similar each week?

  5. Ronzoni is 5 for $5 in the flyer I got today. I’m in the Portland area. Different prices for different regions?

  6. I hope they stock up their inventory !! I really dislike seeing empty shelves for the duration of super good deals…even though I can get a rain check. It’s just nice to walk into a store once in a while and actually be able to get what I went for :)

    • The past few years they’ve had major stock! Hopefully this one will be good. If you have a particular variety you love, you may want to talk to your grocery manager and see if you should place an order.

  7. Does the catalina include the instant oatmeal or just the oats?

  8. how often do they have an oatmeal sale?

    • This is the big one that comes each January there is another one that is not quite as good that comes in October. So two REAL SALES a year and then a few small ones in between.

  9. The Catalina is only for oatmeal right, doesn’t include the cereal?

  10. I priced granola bars at Costco yesterday as well and even if there are no coupons that make them a better deal, this sale beats Costco price. They are .167 each at Costco and with the Albies sale (as long as you get 10ct boxes) they are .15 each. So not a totally crazy stock up price (at least for my family), but better than anywhere else. Just an FYI. Hoping for coupons though :)

  11. WAHOOO!!!!!! :)

  12. Not that it’s the highlight of this post, but the Valentine candy is on sale at Kmart this week 2/$5. Would be a better place to use that coupon :)

  13. So glad I bought 20 coupons on Ebay for this. I got them today in the mail. Thanks again ladies for being so darn FABULESS!!!

  14. are the Quaker Dipps Granola bars included in this sale???

  15. Just to clarify in my mind….
    is the catalina for the instant flavored oatmeal AND the 46 oz canisters?
    Thanks for all your work on this and other posts!

  16. Oh, and the 21st is Friday….. does the Catalina start Friday the 21 or Sat the 22???

  17. Okay, just dreaming here, but wouldn’t it be nice if there WERE doubles? Then you could double 3 oatmeal coupons maing your OOP 1.50 and then use your cat on granola bars or other items in the promo. A deam I know but it sure sounds good!!

  18. how and when should we make an order with albertsons. Ive never stocked up before because usually deals like this the shelf is wiped fast??? is a box 20???

    • I am wondering the same thing. I want to buy 20 boxes of oatmeal. Should I do a special order or take my chances?

      • Hilary-

        It is always better to be safe than sorry. Give your grocery manger a call and see if you can place an order. This is always the BIGGEST QUAKER SALE of the year so the stores should be well stocked. But you never know what could happen. :)

        • I called and ordered 20 boxes to pick up this saturday. he said they will be getting another big shipment on saturday as well so you will all be pretty safe :) The guy didn’t have internet and didn’t know about the Catalina and asked about coupons out there… and was really worried when I told him but I brought him up to speed and he will be prepared :)

  19. I thought I would throw this out there on this blog entry also….. I am having a hard time getting coupons on ebay. They are going for around $12.00 and there are no buy now coupons left. I know you snooze you lose sometimes. But I was hoping someone might have some extras that they aren’t going to use that I could buy or trade (or do both if needed) with other coupons that you might want. Thank you!

    • Bought some. Won a bid. Got 20 for $7.50. Hopefully they get here in time or the stores run out and I can get a raincheck. :)

      • Great job Meaghan! The bidding paid off. Cool. You should get them in time. YOu ordered early enough . No holidays this weekend to throw things off. :)

    • You can ask the seller if he/she has any to offer as a buy it now. That’s worked for me before

  20. I have a question about a different topic but am not sure where to post it so thought I would try her. Has anybody received their movie tickets from the Albertsons sale back in November? I have not received mine and am not sure who to contact.

    • I’m still waiting for mine as well. They were supposed to be a christmas gift and they didn’t come. I have no idea who to contact either.

    • Didn’t get mine yet either…. starting to wonder……

      • I did get mine, and it was before Christmas. I would call Albertson’s corporate since the deal was at their store and see if they can at least give you a number to call.

    • Got mine the week of Christmas.

    • I called corporate and here is what they had me do. Go to and click on the coupons/promotions tab from there click track my order and enter your last name/house number/zip code and it will give you the status of your order. Mine is in process and can take up to 90 days which I think is ridiculous but what can you do? Good luck everyone.

  21. Does anyone know of any gatorade coupons from the inserts I have seen BOGO and $1 off on ebay. hate to buy them if I already have the insert.

    • There aren’t any listed on our coupon database:

      • I just found out today that Nichols in Durant will price match any local stores prices. They consider local stores Walmart, Walgreens, Green spray, and family dollar ect. This should add up to some great savings! I am going tomorrow to see how it all works, there are tons of free items to get once the coupon is doubled.Also they are no longer allowing more then one transation per person. They actually told me to go out to my car, put my stuff away and come back in to do another transaction. Odd to say the least, I guess someone tried to do 13 transactions today!

  22. Hey Fabs!
    1/21/11 is Friday :)

  23. I just got a catalina alert that printed out at Albertsons a few days ago, saying buy 3 boxes of quaker instant oatmeal and get $3 off. I am interested to see which it will be :o)

  24. If anyone boought Quaker coupons and will not be using all of them..PLEASE let me know! I will be happy to pay you the whatever you paid for them!

    cravingcoupons (at)

    Thanks! :)

  25. Anyone know how the stores look on stock right now?

    • Glenwood and state is looking good for everything but regular oatmeal squares and regular old fashioned oats (they only had 1 this morning, and i bought it). But, the oatmeal squares are always the first to go…

  26. Boo! I went this morning about 6:15 and did two transactions and neither printed a cat. What do I do so I can get it now?

    • Bummer Megan! Here is the post that should answer your question:

      If you need to find it again look on the side bar from the Coupon Tip Tuesday button and then: Why Didn’t My CATALINA Print?


      In the menu bar Learn to be A frugal: Frequently asked questions: Why Didn’t My CATALINA Print?

      Hope that helps!

    • I would call the catalina company. I went and did three transactions and got all 3. I purchased the 42 oz canisters as well as different varieties of the Instant.

    • Thanks guys! I went and did another transaction late on Friday and got the cat, I’m thinking it was either an issue with the machine or maybe it was too early on Friday and it hadn’t loaded into the system yet or something, so thanks for helping point me where to go!

      • Your welcome Megan! Glad you got the deal!

      • i have went and told the people at customer service at my albertsons and they have just given me cash for my catalina. So you might just check with your store. Mine has been very very good with working with me.

  27. Meridian Mama says:

    Anyone has extra coupons for sale? I have a small family, so 5 would be aplenty for me…
    meridianmama (at) q (dot) com

  28. Long shot… wondering if anyone local has any of the $1/1 coupons that they are not going to use…. My family loves oatmeal and this is a good deal but I have zero coupons to make it FAB!

  29. Becky Ruths says:

    For anyone still needing to Shop: Orchard and Overland in Boise is STOCKED!!! Went tonight with my 20 coupons, and you wouldn’t even know I was there!!!

  30. i just want to say a heartfelt thanks to the ladies of this site. I have only been couponing 3mos now and what a difference!!! On a whim I got 20 oatmeal coupons last month off ebay and Hooray for this sale!!! I just got 20 oatmeal for $5.50. Before couponing I use to pay $4.56 for 2 boxes of generic! This is amazing. I don’t go shopping now without you guys! My family and I want to THANK ALL OF YOU for blessing our lives!!!!

    Liz B

  31. I’m resorting to begging….please, oh please, oh please!! Does anyone else out there have extra $1/1 oatmeal coupons that you’re not going to use by tomorrow?! I’d L.O.V.E. go buy them from you, if so!! I actually purchased some on EBAY toward the end of the week, but am quite certain they won’t be here by tomorrow. AND, if you’re want yours “replaced” just in case…I’d happily do that for ya once mine get here. THANKS ;P
