If you shop at Fred Meyer, you should look near the front entrance, my local Fred Meyer stores have coupon exchange baskets (Olympia and Tumwater). I make a bee-line for it the minute I walk through the door – you just never know what you’re going to find. If you have extra coupons, this is a great place to drop them off.
AND. . .don’t forget that Walmart and QFC are taking competitors catalinas right now. So if you find a good catalina coupon in the Fred Meyer basket and it doesn’t equal a good deal at Freds, hold on to it and give it a try at QFC or Walmart!
Can I combine catalina for a certain product and manufacturers coupon for the same product? They both say manufacturers coupons. I always get catalinas at Fred Meyers but not sure if I can combine them.
Good question JP! You cannot combine manufacturer coupons, so for example, if you had a catalina for $1 off cheerios, you couldn’t ALSO use a $1 newspaper/printed manufacturer coupon for cheerios. You CAN however use newspaper/printed coupon manufacturer coupons with the “off your next order” catalinas – for example $3 off your next order or $5 off your next order. Does that make sense?
ok, thanks Heather.
I totally discoverd this today!! Got a few really good coupons!
Last Sunday somebody had left almost the entire “Have you tried this yet?” PG mailer in the basket! It had the exact coupons I needed and I was so thankful. I always make sure to check it and leave behind my coupons that somebody else could use. Kellie – maybe ask to talk to a manager about it and volunteer to put some coupons in it to get it restarted??
Our Fred Meyer took it away because “no one” was using it! I wonder how we could get it back!
