Not Yet Advertised: New ConAgra Cat Deal at Jewel and Shaws -- UPDATED THERE ARE PROBLEMS

UPDATE: A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE REPORTING THAT THIS DEAL IS NO LONGER WORKING AS OF YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY). SOME (LIKE MELISSA IN MY COMMENTS SECTION) SAY IT'S JUST THAT IT STOPPED WORKING THE "CHEAP" WAY. BUT MOST PEOPLE SEEM TO BE SAYING THE WHOLE DEAL IS ON HOLD. SO DO NOT ATTEMPT UNTIL FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS ARRIVE, MKAY? OR IF YOU DO ATTEMPT, REPORT HERE WHAT YOUR RESULTS WERE.

I heard there was a new Catalina deal at Shaws on Money Saving Mom, so I ran over to the Jewel forum on Hot Coupon World to see if it has also started at sister chain Jewel. Yep, it started last week, according to posters there! Spend $25, get $10.

And it has been confirmed that, like in the past, the deal works off register prices. That means you don't really have to spend $25 to get the $10 in coupons, you just have to get stuff worth $25 in the "non-card" price. You should be able to get a number of items, like the Healthy Choice soups for free -- or they'll be moneymakers if you have coupons!

Here are some items included, which someone on HCW got emailed from the Catalina company:

Peter pan peanut butter
Swiss Miss hot chocolate (all varieties)
Parkay vegetable oil spread
Marie Callender Entrees, dinners, pot pies, or soup
Hunts Tomato sauce
Hunts Snack pack puddings,or gelatin
Hunts Ketchup
Hunts Tomato Puree (.40/2, 1/18 SmartSource)
Hunts Pasta Sauce
Hunts Manwich (on sale for $1, $1/3 coupon from 1/18 SmartSource)
Reddi Whip Whipped Topping
Wesson Cooking oil, or non stick spray
Banquet Tv dinners
Kids Cuisine TV dinners
Healthy Choice Soup ( it did not mention other products?)
Pam cooking Spray
Van Camp Baked Beans
Chef Boyardee meals (ALL Varieties)
Crunch N Munch (.35/1 1/18 SmartSource)
Rotel Tomatoes and tomato sauce
Act II popcorn

Or see Slickdeals' list with coupon matchups here.

I am glad to see this since I was noticing my canned tomato stockpile from the last time was dwindling! I wonder if Hunt's diced tomatoes is included -- this list only says Hunt's puree or Rotel tomatoes.

There are also other Catalina deals being reported at Shaw's, maybe also Jewel, that can be combined to possibly yield profits. Read Queen of the Urban Jungle's blog for those deets.

yes hunts diced tomatoes is included however it's not off register prices any longer. they changed it as of today. now it's off sale prices.

yup, I'm hearing now it's on hold too.. until the 26th. The Jewel I was I think was guessing that they had changed the deal because that is what was done before. OH well.. such is life.

Actually I don't think the deal has ever been changed to reflect only sale prices. I was told that last time by two different managers but it was not true. I realized later that the transactions I had trouble on didn't work for some other reason, and I was able to subsequently do the deal the cheap way again.

it's absolutely working at Shaws in RI/MA on pre-sale prices! i rolled it 3x yesterday. maybe it's turned off at Jewel specifically? or regionally? :( :( :(
