P&G promotion at HEB - Tomorrow is the final day!
I posted about this promotion over a week ago and I posted a reader scenario on this deal here. (Now it does appear the glitch has been fixed on the reader's deal and only the $10 OR the $15 is printing but not both!) However, there are still some good deals to be had with this promotion.
I am going to matchup P&G items to coupons that are currently out for these items.
The ring up price counts toward the $40 threshold you need to get to in order to get the $15 catalina.
(I am going to attempt to break this down similar to how you would an ECB deal. Bascially, I am going to take the amount of each item the catalina would take off to give you your true cost(the price I show in BLUE). Now keep in mind, you are going to pay MORE at the register. You will pay the price after taking coupon off, but BEFORE taking the catalina discount off (discount I have in RED). The price in blue is basically our after promo price (like your after ECB or RR price at the drugstores - I sure hope this is making sense, lol)
The catalina is basically like taking an extra ~.375 off per $1 spent- just trust me on this. I am assuming in this you are going for the $40 scenarios to get the $15 cat. This might confuse some so at the end I will try to post some scenarios, but everyone is different on what they want to get so hopefully this will give you the true cost of item. Feel free to ask questions and I will try to clarify):
Keep in mind prices can vary a bit by store, so make sure you hit the $40 mark otherwise you will cost yourself a $15 catalina! (also, any amount you go over $40 will be in addition back in, this just gives a ball park with a slight error)
Olay Regenerist cloth $5.47 -$3 insert 6-5 P&G = $2.47 at register -$2.05 cat earning = .42
Gillette deodorant $4.24 - bogo insert 5-15 RP = $4.24 for 2 - $3.18 cat earning = $1.06 for 2
Gillette deodorant $3.77 - bogo insert 5-15 RP = $3.77 for 2 - $2.83 cat earning = $0.94 for 2
Oral B cross action tb $3.47 - bogo insert 6-5 P&G = $3.47/2 - 2.60 cat earning = .87 for 2
Febreze air effects $2.66 - $1 insert 6-5 P&G = $1.66 -$1 cat earning = .66
Bounty napkins $2.16 - 1 insert 6-5 P&G = $1.16 - .81 cat earning = .35
Herbal Essence S/C $2.87 - $1 insert 6-12 RP = $1.87 - $1.08 cat earning = .79
Crest rinse $4.78 - $2 insert 6-5 P&G = $2.78 - $ 1.79 cat earning = .99

Gillette fusion razor $9.94
Gillette fusion shave gel $3.56 - free shave gel wyb razor YQ - $4 insert 6-5 P&G
=$5.94 - $5.06 cat earnings = .88 for a razor and gel
Iams cat food $7.58 - $5 homemailer = $2.58 - $2.84 cat earning = .26 MM (and can use upc for the rebate I post about here!)
2 Tampax Pearl $3.92 - $3/2 insert 6-5 P&G = $4.84 - $2.94 cat earning = $1.90/2
Always liners $3.49 - $1 homemailer = $2.49 - $1.31 cat earning = $1.18
Tide stain release $5.99 - $3 insert 6-5 P&G = $2.99 - $1.07 cat earnings = $1.92 (if you purchase 3, you can mail off for this $5 rebate - thanks Vicki)
Tide stain release $3.97 - $1 insert 6-5 P&G = $2.97 - $1.49 cat earnings = $1.48 (if you purchase 3, you can mail off for the above rebate, mix and match)

Mr Clean large bottles $2.47 - $1 YQ = $1.47 -$.93 cat earnings = .54
Mr Clean magic erasers $3 - .50 YQ = $2.50 - $1.13 cat earnings = $1.37
Pampers $8.97 - $2 Fiesta booklet coupon(found at Fiesta, but manuf coupon) = $6.97 - $3.36 cat earnings = $3.61 ($4.11 with $1.50 insert OR $1.97 if you the $5 catalina from HEB)
Pringles small cans .59 - $1/2 homemailer = .18 - .44 cat earnings = .26 MM
Now basically decide what you want, and make sure it is $40 before your coupons. I have told you what your final cost of that item will be after the coupons and the cat savings are taken into consideration. Now you just have to decide if Mr Clean, for example, is worth .54 to you! Of course you have to buy $37.53 more of other stuff to get it for that, but that is where the fun begins!
If you want to just do $30 scenarios, use .333 instead of .375 as your multiplyer.
*And before anyone asks, no, as far as I know, there is not a pocket size me that can go to the store with you ;P I've done the hard work, now get to shopping!
Possible scenario: (this is for someone with just 1 insert)
Olay Regenerist cloth $5.47
2 Gillette deodorant $3.77 x 2
2 Oral B cross action tb $3.47 x 2
1 Febreze air effects $2.66
1 Bounty napkins $2.16
1 Herbal Essence S/C $2.87
1 Crest rinse $4.78
1 Mr Clean bottle $2.47
1 Old Spice deodorant $1.95
1 Old Spice bodywash $3.31
= $40.15 - 19.55 in coupons = $20.06 oop at register
But you earn $15 catalina so $5.06 final cost for listed items above
*Now if you tally my after prices, I show $5.54, so you actually improved on this, but you get the idea(I HOPE!)
