Catalinas are the coupons that print from a separate machine and they hand them to you with your receipt. Generally, if you're in Sacramento, there is pretty much ALWAYS a Midas coupon on them. Anyway, Save Mart gave us one the other day with a survey on it. It was a simple customer service survey that took me about 5 minutes to complete. It said I may receive a $5 Save Mart gift card for participating. Sure enough, look what just came in the mail!
So I say keep an eye on your receipts just in case they also are recruiting for survey takers on the bottom of receipts. But especially take a close look at the Catalina offers! It sure was a nice surprise and definitely worth the 5 minutes!
Note: we also stopped into a McDonald's recently and got a similar offer. Take a survey, maybe get a gift card. We also got that one. Moral of the story: companies want to hear from you and are willing to pay you for it. So give them a few minutes!
