Figuring out MARTIN’S

I am starting to get a feel for MARTIN’S.  I have decided that although I don’t like the fact that they will only double one like coupon per customer per day it is nice that any coupon that is $0.50 or over is doubled to a $1.  I also was able to redeem my $1 Catalina from the Shout Advanced stain remover refill from last week and earn an additional one today with another Shout Advanced stain remover refill (I used it in a separate transaction just to be sure it wouldn’t cause a problem) and earn a $4 Catalina with the Edy’s promo on the front page of the ad.  I was able to use coupons and still earn the Catalina.  I ended up with 2 boxes of Drumsticks & 2 boxes of Frozen Fruit Bars for $6 after coupons and earning the Catalina. I also got free pancake mix and syrup by purchasing coffee and Canadian bacon.  (I spent a total of $5.99 on the coffee and Canadian Bacon.)  I needed to pick-up coffee for church and the Canadian bacon will be great for breakfast or on top of pizza (or both).
