Re-Post MARTIN’S Money Maker thru 5/14


If you buy 3 expressions from Hallmark greeting cards you get a $5 Catalina to use on a future purchase.  I verified that the $0.99 cards work for this deal.  You can buy multiples of 3 in one transaction and get multiple $5 Catalinas.

I want to point out one thing that I did read and notice printed on the Catalina is that you can only use one of the $5 Catalinas at a time in a future transaction.  That means that if you get 6 cards and earn two $5 Catalinas and then want to use that towards your grocery purchase you can only redeem one of the Catalinas in the next transaction.  If you want to use both of them you will have to break up your grocery purchase into two separate transactions and use one $5 Catalina in each.  (Please do this in a self-check-out line and not the express line.)

Don’t forget that MARTIN’S offers a 10% discount on Hallmark cards everyday so the $0.99 cards are really only $0.89.  If you buy 3 that is $2.67 (before tax) and you just earned $2.33!

One great idea that I read on Hot Coupon World of a way to use the money you “made”, outside of the obvious of groceries, is to buy items that are part of the MARTIN’S Celebrates mothers every day prepaid $25 VISA promotion with your $5 Catalinas.  You will still be spending money, but if you combine the $5 Catalinas and the coupons from the May 1st P&G brandSaver you won’t be spending as much out of pocket to hit your 100 points. 

Happy Shopping!

Thanks for posting this deal! I bought 12 cards in one transaction for 11.21 then bought another 12 and used one of my $5 off's. Then I did my shopping and my patient very kind cashier let me split it up into 7 transactions of just over $5 each to use the $5 off's!
I ended up getting $133 worth for $37!!!
