S&S just had the free milk/cereal deal last week but it was good on Cheerios only. This is awesome if it includes Chex...the family is getting tired of Cheerios!

I looks like you stacked the manuf Q with the CAT Q...didn't know you could do this; isn't the CAT Q considered a manuf Q??

The cat q is for the milk, and it looks like the other coupons she used is for the cereal, so it looks kosher to me.

Shaws

The cat Q was for the milk and the other mfg
Qs were not for the actual flavor of Cheerios cereal listed on the Q's (but they worked find and doubled fine)... I have found that when they say "do not double" , Shaws doubles them anyway.. I believe the bar code has to start with a five though (which it did)

Forgot to say that the $2.50 cat Q stated "store coupon" so it stacked fine with the 4 -75 cent mfg Q's

I know you are new to the board, so welcome! Just a FRIENDLY comment on that you used the .75 coupons on ones not listed on the coupon......that is considered coupon fraud, some coupons may work for other things other than what is specifically listed on the coupon, it doesn't mean it should be used on them though. Not judging or trying to be harsh, just wanted to educate

Yes, they will sometimes scan, but just because you can, does not mean you should. We've all made mistakes, but should not do it intentionally. Those who issue the coupons save us all tons of money and we need to use coupons on intended items. Companies are not required to issue coupons and if they are abused, they may choose to stop offering them.

Yep, sometimes products in the same brand family will allow a coupon to scan without beeping...like Katlady says...just because it can, doesn't mean we should. Stores get burned when coupons are taken when they shouldn't and that in turn makes stores less coupon friendly.

Hello,
I have a question, after I do the four boxes of cereal (with coupons) and get the free milk, I will get another $2.50 off catalina store coupon? Then I can use the cat a second order with four more $.75 (doubled) off coupon, getting my second order for $1.50? Thanks for your help on this..
Don

I didn't know that you weren't supposed to use them for a different "flavor" of Cheerios.. I thought it was ok, as long as it didn't reject it....Thank you. I agree, I don't want the stores to get burned and thus become less coupon friendly! Certainly NOT worth it to save a couple of dollars...

Donniej31... Yes, the first order gave me a "store coupon" that stated $2.50 off cereal, so I stacked it with other cereal coupons (Cheerios & Wheat Chex) and used it for the second order..

My cat never came put for the milk and the store coupon that spit out was for save $ 2.00 of the purchase of 5 cereals. I am going to go back and get my free milk today. Good thing I work there. Lol

I did this a bunch of times and got the milk cat and a manf q for $2/5 off next purchase of gm cereals. I definitely did not get any $2.50 cats from Shaws.

Are you sure the $2.50/4 cereal was not a manf q?

Did you get one? I still have one in my wallet and I looked at it and it is a manf q that came out of the cat when I got the milk cat. I just never saw anything about a cat coming out for $2.50 oyno. So this is surprising to me. I did the deal at 4 different Shaws for a total of about 10 or so times. Of course they were all in Maine.

I am curious, is all, not criticizing...

Mine says Manufacturers coupons $2.00 off 5 cereals. It is not a cat for $ oyno.
