New Super-Couponing Tips column: All about Catalinas

My syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column for the week is entitled “All about Catalinas.”

    Such strategies can also apply to rewards programs like Plenti and Extra Bucks. Rite Aid currently has a promotion where you spend $50 on selected products and receive $20 in Plenti points. Manufacturer coupons used at Rite Aid are counted after the total, meaning they truly reduce what you need to spend to meet the total. I was able to spend $19 in cash, $11 in Plenti points and use some manufacturer coupons to get $25 in Plenti Points back (there was another $5 Plenti point promo I was able to stack). So, $19 spent with $25 in points returned.

    Such programs help drug stores drive traffic without having to reduce their prices to Walmart levels.
