Grocery Deals 2/19-2/25 JEWEL-OSCO/SHAWS

The General Mills Catalina is advertised in today's flyer, but not the "little" Betty Crocker and Nature Valley Catalinas reported to be stacking with it. Still, it certainly seems worth trying -- If you buy 5 packs Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks (on sale for $2 each) and 5 Nature Valley Granola Bars (on sale $2.50) each with no coupons, you will pay $22.50 and for sure get a $10 Cat, and probably get a $3.50 Betty Crocker and a $3.50 Nature Valley, meaning you paid $5.50 for a WHOLE LOTTA snacks. 55 cents a box.

I have enough coupons to take an additional $3.95 off that transaction, meaning that if all works as planned, I get the 10 boxes for $1.55. I like that. Others, like My Brain Is Inside Out, have actually been profiting by combining these three deals.

Sources for coupons of this deal: 1/4/09 General Mills insert and I also have a bunch of .75/3 for the fruit snacks that printed out at the register at Jewel.

The rest of the items in the GM Catalina include BC cake mix, frosting, Progresso Soup (at $1.67, so a good deal if you still have any of those $1.10 printables), cereal, Pillsbury biscuits, Green Giant Nibblers, etc.

On to the rest of the flyer.

Starkist Chunk Light Tuna Pouch $1.25
(at first I thought I could use my $1/1 Q from the latest All You, but that Q says Starkist CREATIONS. Think I'll try it anyway.)

As for the ConAgra Catalina promotion that may or may not be running again (I think it is), there is no mention of it and I don't think any items included are on sale. I think it is going to be advertised next week and I will wait because I want to get the stuff on sale, of course. Marie Callender's Al Dente meals are on sale, but after much studying of the list, I don't see Al Dente anywhere among the many, many Marie Callender's items that are to be included.
