Jewel: General Mills Double Dipping Catalina Deals


There’s a catalina promotion going on at SuperValu grocery stores this week (Acme, Albertson’s and Jewel) 10/16-10/22.  Earn a $10 catalina coupon off your next order when you spend $25 in General Mills products.  At the same time there’s another catalina offer going on on Pillsbury items (also a General Mills Brand):  “Buy 4 Pillsbury refrigerated baked goods, get $2 or buy 5 get $3 or buy 6 get $4 catalina back.”

Here’s a double dipping scenario on Simply Cookies:

Buy 7 for $17.50 (remember that catalina deals at Jewel work off shelf price not sale price)
Use $1.25/1 printable coupon (IE Link) (FF Link)
Use $1/1 printable coupon (IE Link) (FF Link)
Use $0.55/1 printable coupon
Pay as little as $8.75, if you can get your hands on 7 $1.25/1 coupons, and get a $10 catalina back for the General Mills offer and a $4 catalina back for buying 6 Pillsbury items.  Even if you could only use six coupons (two of each one I shared) you would pay $11.9 out of pocket and still get the $14 in coupons back.

But the double dipping doesn’t stop there.  There’s also a double dipping scenario for Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks.  There’s a third catalina promotion going on on those: “Buy 3, Get $1.50; Buy 4, Get $2.50; Buy 5, Get $3.50 CAT.”

Here’s a straightforward double dipping scenario:

Buy 7 for $17.50 (UPDATE:  Check the shelf price to confirm shelf price total is above $25)
Use $0.50/2 printable coupons here, here
Use $0.40/1 printable coupons here,  (if BC fruit flavored shapes included)
Pay as little as $14.70 and get $10 catalina back for the General Mills offer and a $3.50 catalina back for buying more than five BC fruit snacks

    I do not see the Betty Crocker fruit shapes .40/1 coupons on Smartsource. Are they only under a certain zip code?

    • Hi erin,

      I removed the links since the coupons are not available there.


  • The fruit snacks are on price cut at Jewel for $1.99, so it throws off the figuring on your deal. Also, the Indiana warehouse is already out of Simply cookies, so it’s just about impossible to find them!

  • Hi Mercedes,
    Thanks for the link up!
    There is also a $1 Simply Cookies coupon in the 9/13 GM if people run out of IP options.

    Two other ideas are 20 Green Giant Canned Veggies for $5 after CAT or 11 Betty Crocker Brownies (make sure they ring around $2.50 shelf price) for $1 after CAT.
    Those things should still be on the shelf.
    I hope that helps those of us who can’t find the Simply Cookies anymore!!
    All the best,

    Store I went to was out of the cookies too. I’m going to try a different one I’m sometimes able to find stuff when they’re out by me. But I just got 9 pkg of the Nestle cookie dough with the deals last week, so no biggie. My parents finally took me up on my offer to teach them how to shop at Jewel. They were EXTREMELY happy to take home 36 cans of soup and 7 boxes of cereal for about $11.

    Awesome, thanks for posting Mercedes!! luv luv luv these catalina deals!!! I just came from Jewel and spent $15.50 oop, and got back $17.50 in cats! Got crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, and fruit snacks cause they were out of (no surprise) the simply cookies. I love getting paid for groceries! 🙂 Also, for those who don’t know, couponerswanted is where you can find all the details on how Jewel catalina deals work. Otherwise it can be extremely confusing and frustrating. Read a lot before going and start small.
