HEB Catalina Deal: BIG Money-Maker On Herbal Essences!

Here is an amazing deal on Herbal Essences hair care and body care available at HEB right now as part of the ongoing P&G catalina offer!After all discounts, we can get PAID to buy Herbal Essences Shampoo, Conditioner, or Body Wash!  Depending on the mix of coupons you have, this could conceivably be up to a $4 money-maker. Now, this is truly an advanced couponing deal, because it combines piggybacking and a catalina.  So if you aren’t familiar or comfortable with either practice, I STRONGLY recommend you check out my how-to guide to piggybacking along with my how-to guide to catalinas before you read any further. Once you’ve read through both those posts, here’s how the math works out:

  • Herbal Essences Shampoo & Conditioner — select varieties priced at $2.50 per bottle, with a yellow HEB coupon available for a free bottle of Herbal Essences Body Wash when you buy two.

  • Herbal Essences Body Wash is usually $3.19 per bottle at most HEB stores, and of course, Herbal Essences is part of the current catalina deal.
  • So buy eight bottles of hair care, plus four bottles of body wash, for a pre-coupon price of $32.76, which is plenty to trigger your $10 catalina (assuming it prints.)
  • IMPORTANT: Make sure your cashier hits TOTAL before passing over your coupons!  That way, you can make sure your catalina is printing, and get a manager involved if it doesn’t.  See 4 reasons why a catalina might not print — and what to do about it.
  • Piggyback four of the yellow coupons with four $3 off 2 Herbal Essences coupons arriving in the 5/2 P&G inserts.  Remember, you are not stacking coupons — in this scenario, you are buying 12 items, and using eight coupons.
  • Those eight coupons take a total of $24.76 off your total.
  • So you’ll pay $8 out of pocket, and then you’ll receive a $10 catalina to use on a future purchase.
  • That’s a whopping 12 items for FREE, plus $2 in profit!
Now, there is also a current $2 off $10 HEB digital coupon available on hair care that you might try using in addition to this scenario above.
If your app is working well, that will knock your price down to $6 out of pocket, with your $10 catalina back for next time.  So that’s a $4 profit!
However, during my shopping trip yesterday the digital coupons were being super glitchy and not coming off appropriately.  So you might have to get a manager involved to have this coupon taken off your total if it doesn’t happen automatically.
Big thanks to Amanda, who spotted this deal yesterday while we were in store!
