Update: Some people are getting this, and others have had some trouble. Make sure you are getting the 50 oz size, not the bonus sizes as the bonus sizes are not producing the catalinas.

  1. I went to Fred Meyer early this morning and the CAT did not print out. I customer service manager said that the CAT deal ended yesterday.

  2. So, I should be able to use the .35/1 coupons as long as I buy 2 of the 50oz bottles of Purex Natural Elements detergent? And that will qualify me for the Catalina? I guess I just want to confirm that the coupon and catalina do match up before I go to the store! Thanks!!

  3. This did not work for me in Longview, WA today. Is this a regional catalina or should I call them since it did not print?

  4. Hi! I just went to the Fred Meyer in Yakima. OK–here’s the deal. The coupon is for Purex Natural Elements detergent. At the store, this variety is a wonderful 20% more, which makes it larger than the 50 oz size you need for the catalina to work. I took mine back, got the Ultra Purex Hypoallergenic (which was the ONLY one that was 50 oz), and the catalina worked. (Of course, the machine was out of paper–but I called 888-8COUPON and requested my catalina to be mailed to me). So, check the size on your detergent. If it didn’t work and the size was too large, just return it and retry w/ the 50 oz size! Hope this helps!

  5. I just tried this at my fred meyer in Oregon. The first time a CAT printed the second time one did not. The customer service lady said the one will not print if you use the CAT??? I am not sure if she knew what she was talking about or if what happened to me was just a fluke.

  6. if I understand correctly, I should have gotten it. I checked both my bottles and they are both 50oz. They are the Purex liquid with bleach alternative. Is it for only a certain kind? Thanks for the help!

  7. Mine did not print either and I did get the 50 ounce size…

  8. Think I made a newbie mistake on this today. I got a $5 catalina for purchasing 3 at Fry’s (Kroger). I was so elated a few hours later I decided to go to another store and try again. Oops. No catalina. Guess i learned something. Don’t get greedy ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe wait a day in between?

  9. Leigh–I’m not sure about the bleach thing. I didn’t read my Catalina–I spent it too fast!! ๐Ÿ™‚ From what Hot Coupon World says–it’s just 50 oz. You need to buy at least two. Two gets you a $4 cat and 3+ gets you a $5 cat–which is why Janice got a $5 cat. Maybe the Catalina machine wasn’t working. Mine was out of paper. Call 888-8COUPON and talk to them. Have your receipt and it’s an easy phone call. Very nice people.

    Janice–you don’t have to wait any length of time to get a Catalina. It should print whenever you buy the correct items. Again, maybe something was wrong w/ the machine. I’ve learned to look at the lights on the Catalina machine to make sure it’s working. Call the above number with your receipt. You both could take the items back and re-buy if you need the $ right now. Calling the Catalina company will take a few weeks to get your catalina in your hands.

  10. Oh, great to know. Thanks so much!

  11. I have tried to print the coupon from two different computers and it keeps saying that I have already printed my limit. What?

  12. Rebecca – That happened to me too, so I went directly to the website. I was able to print a coupon from there but it turned out to only be .35. ๐Ÿ™

  14. I bought the Bonus size and got the Catalina with no problems. I did it twice and it worked both times.

  15. I went to the Kennewick Fred Meyer again this morning and bought 2 more bottles with no problem…but…I tried to buy 2 more and the manager came over and said that you can not use the CAT to buy 2 more bottles. She said that you must buy 3 bottles now to pay for the detergent with another CAT. They will not let you use the CAT on whatever you want when you are done with buying the detergent…you can only use it on Purex products. I thought that was a bunch of bull.

  16. I looked in my 1/10 red plum insert and there is no coupon. I’ve missed a couple other coupons from this date of red plum. Just to make sure I haven’t mis-labeled something, is it the one with IHOP on the front? If anyone could double check this for me that would be great!

  17. This worked for me today at the longview fred meyer. I purchased two 50oz purex with color safe bleach and received the $4.00 off my next order catalina. Not the kind I usually use, but I will almost always use free products!

  18. I just got back from the Fred Meyer in Spokane. I wanted to “rinse and repeat” to score a bunch of free soap! After my first transaction, my CAT printed no problem. I then went to use it on the next transaction of 2 it beeped. The cashier told me that since the Purex was only 3.98 after the Freddies coupon, I couldnt use a $4 CAT. I grabed a cheap candy bar to push it through. Irritated at that, I decided to hand over my CAT first on the next set and then the Freddies coupon…. IT WORKED! Thought I would share in case anyone else was having the same issue!

  19. I bought two bottles monday morning, the 50 oz size, got the catalina, went back on tuesday and they were out. They very easily gave me a raincheck, but i used my catalina on my other purchases anyway, and it was treetop juice, it quite obviously was not a purex product as someone else was told it had to be.

  20. I bought some of the fabric softener at the Richland store on Monday night and got no catalina’s. Was it because it was the softener? I was under the impression that it was for purex products.

  21. Just at the Richland Fred Meyers and the cashier told me the Purex catalina wasn’t working today (I asked if the machine was working and she had other cats print out, but not purex). Looks like the deal is dead here.
