GAH! I tried it with the Dove Body Wash and got screwed - LOL I got the $12 but not the $15. THANKS for posting this!!

I did try the Vaseline lotion, but it didn't work for me. I got the lotion that was wrapped with the small, free bottle, and all I got was $12. This was at the Hillcrest Abls. Hmm, I even went to the customer service desk.

Advice on how to get it straightened out? I did already spend the $12 CATs that came out though...

I know the promo was working last until Tuesday for the sale but the manager at our Albertsons said a few things changed in the new ad and if you look at the spend $30 save $15 in the ad that just came out....those bathroom items are no longer in that sale and so he said the catalinas would only print out $12! Great deal for those who got it though!

maygan said...

It's only the boxed vaseline lotions that work.

Amy said...

I dont agree about the change in sales(though I am not a manager at Albertsons), the ad that came out on Sunday says it is good through Saturday....so you should still be getting cats for those purchases at least until Saturday, right?

LaToya Dieter said...

I tried the Vaseline lotions and they didn’t work for me at 36th & State…but they are hands down the best store to work with on these things…I went to customer service to return it since I got the $12 but not the $15….and they went ahead and gave me the $15.
I am still wounded from earlier when I tried the Dove body wash….I should have returned them, but since I had used coupons and paid with Catalinas I really didn’t want to give them grief…..so that was a busted trip…..so then on my next trip I only had the $12 instead of the $15…..
But now I am back with $27 in Catalinas and ready for another round - - yippppeeee!

jennifer said...

How long is the double dip promo lasting?

LaToya Dieter said...

MOGLE - - I think that's correct and why SOME of the things that are no longer in the ad are still working....and some are not.
NOTE TO SELF: if it's not in the ad, don't try it. Lesson learned for ME!

I did this with the Q-tips, and got my $15 cats, and then I only got $7 from univeiver... so I paid $2 for everything... still not a back deal, just not a money maker! Sad....

Amy said...

I did this three times yesterday, so as of Wednesday, it was still working. The trick is that you have to buy all $30 worth of the three items. For some reason, no one seems to be able to get e combo of Dove and Q-tips to work, so I didn't try that one.
My first scenario was 4 boxes of Vaseline Clinical Therapy(6 oz) and 4 (500 ct) Q-tips. Total was $30, got $27 back. 2nd scenario was 7 LARGE bottles of Dove shampoo and conditioner ($4.99 each) Since 6 bottles falls short of the $30 requirement, I had to do 7 and the total was $34.93 before Qs...got back $27 in Cats. 3rd scenario was 6 boxes of the Vaseline Clinical Therapy $30 total (oh...minus 6 -$1/1 qs and two Albies doublers) and I got another $27! Woohoo!

One caution though, the $15 Cats are rolling...the other $12 are not, so if you want to do this deal multiple times, intersperse other scenarios so that you'll continute to get the extra $12 in Cats. In other words, don't use the extra $12 Cats to try another $27 scenario...you won't get the extra $12 the next time if you do.

I could not find those upc codes on any of the vaseline lotions that I was looking at. I tried it with a few and the q tips and it didn't work so I just returned them.

amygrendell said...

I did the dove shampoo and conditioners and one box of q-tips in puyallup, wa and it worked. got the $27 in catalinas back. I actually did this at two different A's and both times it work. I only rolled the $15 catalinas b/c I'd heard about the unilever one not letting you roll :)

LaToya Dieter said...

Thanks, AMY - - gonna use your scenario....although I already got some of the lotion...these are really great gifts :) I did the $30 - - always hit that on the dot or a tad over - - my issue is the lotion I got was not the right one. You are saying BOXES....boxes? Do you mean like squarish plastic bottles...?

Ashley said...

I just went to my usual Albies and they were out of the Dove Shampoo :( That is what I really wanted so they called another store for me and I went there. I got 2 shampoo and 2 conditioner and they only had the 170 ct Q-tips so I got 5 of those since they were on of the upc numbers that were listed here. My total came to $30.41 :) used my coupons and $15 in catalinas from last time.
It did not work!
It only printed a $3 unilever cat. So I tried to return and got the run around about how the catalinas are not longer printing if you use a coupon of any kind, including a catalina...
To make a long story shorter ;)
It turns out that the 170 ct Q-tips are not a part of the unilever deal at all!! (upc:30521500700)
After a long ordeal they used the 300 ct q-tip upc and all $27 in catalinas printed! They also gave me the 2 $3 cats that printed while they were trying to work it out.
So out of pocket I spent $9 and change and ended up with $33 in catalinas.
Took a long time, but the employees were great!

LaToya Dieter said...

ASHLEY - that sounds like a super Albies...love that. I think the Q-Tips were only the 300-500 or something like that...the ones that are 2/$5.

Chris and Nichole said...

Just a FYI, I rolled the 15.00 cat and the 12.00 together into the Q-tip deal 3 times in a row and everything printed out just fine as it should!

LaToya Dieter said...

CHRIS & NICHOLE - - whatchu gonna do with all them Q-tips? I did it twice...thought 3 was too much...guess I'm taking them to the church or something....I mean that's just way too many Q-tips - - LOL

Terre said...

I was thinking the same thing about the qtips, but i can't pass up a deal like that, lol.

So can you combine the shampoo/cond, lotion and qtips into one transaction? Or can you only spend $30 in all shamp/cond, lotion or qtips to get the deals??

Terre said...

how do you know when to stop getting these awesome deals? i seriously am so addicted to good deals!

Ashley said...

LaToya- I know! I just went to Albertsons.com and left some great feedback for both stores. :)

LaToya Dieter said...

LOL @ TERRE: I’m with you….I just keep going and going…..but now that the doublers went down from 5 to 2 and I’m seeing I’m paying a little more….and then I got stuck with the wrong Dove and no $27, I need to reevaluate my game plan and just have more of a plan instead of runaround willey-nilly because I’ve got Catalinas to roll. I think I’ve got a couple more trips to make yet on the current $15 promo…..and then I’ll be done… And then there’s the new Kraft promo starting….but I need the instant gratification and $5 now and wait for the rest I don’t think will do it for me.

Chris and Nichole said...

LOL I'll be keeping half for me them giving the rest away to family!! I'm done now though, between this and the Dr.Pepper deal I'm exhausted!!

Alison said...

There was a lady at my Albies that was returning a cart full of Dove shampoo and q-tips. I hope she didn't buy that stuff with the intentions of returning and making double money. Very bad!! It made me angry. I wanted to buy just 1 package of q-tips, who needs $30 worth, but the shelves were empty!

Terre said...

that dr. pepper deal was awesome! i went back to get more and my store had signs up saying the dr pepper wasn't included anymore, lol. its so addicting though getting that "cash" back everytime.

Lady Thought said...

I bought 7 of the 500 ct q-tips and 2 dove shampoos, came to 30.98 before coupons and I got 27 in cats. It was only a 12 cent moneymaker, lol, but hey, when can you complain about MAKING money shopping!

As for what to do with the q-tips: it is literally 35 years worth of q-tips if we use at the current rate, so I'm giving most of them to a women's shelter.

LaToya Dieter said...

I can't find the Vaseline lotions anywhere...and the Albies this morning said the warehouse told him he's done and not getting any more..... :(

gregmichelle5462 said...

Going to give Q-tips to Head Start, they use them like a paint brush in crafts, Now that takes care of 18 boxes, what to do with the other 36....

LaToya Dieter said...

LOL @ GREGMICHELLE
I'm taking some to daycare....will send some to the school when the kids start....keep some...and then the rest to the church, I guess.

Terry said...

five mile and overland had plenty of vaseline lotions, q-tips, suave bodywash, suave deodorants, ragu, yoplait yoplus....etc :-) No more kids suave or degree deodorant (there was one left) and I didnt check all the other stuff - had the baby with me, miscalculated - rang up at $28 and the cust. service let me go back and get $2 worth of stuff and ring up with them and they printed of the $15 catalina - very nice of them (but, if they hadnt, I would've returned all my items and then re-bought -so it was probably less work for them!). Its hard to concentrate when your kiddo's are with you!

Terry said...

OH - I dont know if the vaseline lotion I saw is the right kind - I think they had the larger bottles that are part of this promo (I got the smaller - just for the $15 - not the extra $12 catalina)

Ryan and Carrie said...

I think it depends on the Albertsons if they have fixed their system or not. I bought 5 of the Vaseline lotions and 2 500 ct. q-tips and it wasn't a great trip even with my $15 catalina from a previous order on Monday. It only printed out $12 catalina not $27 so in my ad for our store the items were not related so I am thinking it wont work at my Albies! Good luck to everyone else!

LaToya Dieter said...

I think I am officially done with the GM promo…..I’ve got something like 130 jars of Ragu….36 boxes of Q-tips……36 bottles of All….plus bunches of other things….all the trips, transactions and math have worn me out. Oh but I still have another $15 to spend *giggles*

Connie said...

La Toya: Well that must be why my Albertsons has no more Q-tips or Ragu! ;)

Amy said...

Hi LaToya...this may have already been answered for you by now, but when I'm talking about the BOXES of Vaseline, they actually are in boxes, and then the bottle inside looks similar to a regular vaseline lotion bottle. The box is white, and has the blue Vaseline logo at the top and below the logo it says, "intensive rescue clinical therapy skin protection body lotion." I noticed most Albertsons only had a few boxes in each store...I'm shopping at stores on the penninsula...and I have no idea if they'll get more. The box says it's a new product though. I hope you find some!

Melinda said...

Hey all,
Chris and Nichole commented here about the Dr Pepper deal. Is is still going and is it the same deal where you buy 4 12packs and get catalinas?
I assumed it was over.
