There were blinkies for seafood by the frozen shrimp that I haven't seen at any other store, $2/1 Artic Shores frozen seafood, x 12/31/09 might make for an OK deal.
Some potentially good deals on the $1 ConAgra if there are weekend doubles.

I think the shrimp noted a per # price but it is sold in 2# packages. So double what it says. That is a very nice Q!

Gotta spread the love.........:smile:

We get doubles on Sunday!!!!!!
Not sure if it was an accident or not but my Albertson's was putting flyers in our bags with doublers. I was planning to use them then noticed that they are for next week. October 25, 26 and 27. It is a shiny flier. It also has coupons for
Tony's pizza $1.79 Limit 4
Ground Beef 85%Lean 15% Fat $1.88 lb Limit 10 lbs
Strawberries 1lb container $1.88 Limit 2
Java Delight Coffee 10-12 oz $3.99 Limit 2
Mars Halloween Fun Size Candy 8.67-11.18 oz Limit 2 (snickers and skittles pictured)
Tostitos Tortilla Chips 9-13 oz $1.99 Limit 2

The back has a Budget Stockers stock-up which I assume is in the add Super Bob posted. I will check if not I will try to scan it.

Krehls Mommy
10-18-2009, 06:15:17 PM
On the last page that says stock up and save over 500 budget stretchers, is there a promo with those items or are they just the 10 for $10, 2 for $5, and $5.49 price?
Thanks!:wink7:

I just looked at Superbob's add. They are exactly the same on the 500 budget stretchers. No extra promo.

The differences are the 3 doublers and the coupons detailed up top.:smile:

Post cereals are 1.99 and when you buy 4 you get a box of vanilla almond shredded wheat free. I can't tell for sure because the small print isn't clear, but it looks like Selects are included. There is a cat deal here (http://www.hotcouponworld.com/forums/albertsons-catalina-deals/279715-albertsons-catalina-save-up-3-oyno-wyb-post-selects-cereal-10-9-11-1-09-a.html) which will give you $3 OYNO.

Combined you get 5 boxes of cereal for $5. If any coupons come along this could be good.

10-18-2009, 11:16:13 PM
One I saw at Safeway said it had coupons inside, I think it was Post Raisin Bran in a plain brown box (retro style). Anyone have details?
Anyone see how many GM cereals trigger the free milk?

If there are doubles next weekend, Quilted Northern would be a good deal, best I've seen in a long time! $5.49-$1 (10/11 RP) -$1 dbl=$3.49.

nuffsaid
10-20-2009, 01:03:25 PM
Quilted Northern is the ulta plush and quilifies fo rthe rebate from real simple

So

3 x $5.49 =16.47 ( 15 is the magic numbber for the rebate)
- 3 q @1.00
- 3 doublers @1.00
=$10.47 with a $5 rebate available!

WOOT!!!!!:BigHand:

The healthy choice soup is 10 for 10 tomorrow.
There is a coupon in this weeks smartsource for 75cents off of two cans.
Plus a $1 doubler would make each can 25 cents if you need soup.

There were .50/1 Hostess cupcakes in this last weekends Parade magazine. They are on sale for 2/$4.00. With doublers, they would be $1.00 ea.

There are doublers on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. I already have the flyers in my hands.

i think i already know the answer but have to ask anyways.
can i use the jennie-o q,(from ad) a man. q, and a doubler all on the same item.

jennie-o turkey

store q-makes them 1.99each

man. q- 1.00 off
doubler-1.00 off

=free

10-21-2009, 06:12:34 AM
kijod, I don't see why you can't use it. Do tell on this deal tho. What Q? What turkey?

kijod
10-21-2009, 07:44:26 AM
kijod, I don't see why you can't use it. Do tell on this deal tho. What Q? What turkey?
the ad has a q that makes 1.25 pd package of jennie-o turkey (ground) for $1.99
and i have man. q for $1/1 package (ground or sausage),
now as a couponer i have never had this senerio.
also i will add as an albertsons cashier, i have never dealt with this senerio.
though my manager said she doesnt see why i SHOULDNT be able to use all of these q's,
i wanted to ask my fellow couponers who seem to know more than the bigwigs at my store.lol,,,

This is likely a YMMV since that would be using 2 store Q's on the same product (the store Q & the Doubler Q).

My ad here in Wyoming is for Honeysuckle White brand ground turkey not Jennie-O but the fine print on my in-ad coupons read


"This coupon valid 10/21/09 through 10/27/09 or while supplies last. Coupon cannot be doubled, tripled or quadrupled, exchanged for cash and cannot be combined with Twice the Value Coupons or combined with any other offer. Void if copied or transferred., in the event of a return, coupon savings may be deducted from refund. Not valid towards previous purchase. Items may not be available in all locations. This coupon valid at Albertsons locations. Not valid for online purchase"

I read the "not to be combined with any other offer" part to mean that I cannot use a manufacture's coupon with the in-store coupons. However I am going to attempt to call Albertsons corporate to clarify this.

Does not really matter...I don't have any Honeysuckle White coupons but of course I have tons of Jennie-O ones.:rolleyes24:

10-21-2009, 11:41:51 AM
I just got off the phone with Melanie from Albertsons customer care and she was very helpful. I asked her if you can combine the in-ad store coupons with manufactures coupons and she informed me that is in in compliance with Albertsons coupon policy.

I would say that it could be YMMV depending on how your store handles the wording about not to be combined with any other offers. If you have a coupon friendly store they will probably be fine with it. However if you have a store that is a bit harder on couponers they may not allow it. But these are store coupons not manufacture coupons and should be OK.

You can use a manufactor's coupon but not the doubler it states cannot be combined with "twice the value coupons"

I was told you could combine them if there was 1 barcode on the Albertson's coupons if there was 2 no you could not combine them and there is only 1 barcode so you should be able to combine them just not with the doubler. HTH

nateNnatsmommy
10-21-2009, 01:09:27 PM
I think if you used the ad q, a manufacturer's q and the doubler, you're combining the manu q with the doubler, not the ad q.

A few additional things, for doublers:

LiteHouse Apple Cider & Caramel Dip are $2.50 each (National Ad through Nov 3). There were $1/1 caramel coupons recently and $1/1 ANY Litehouse coupons as well. Double either - $0.50 each.

I also had a Nestle Morsel $1/1 coupon from the 9/13 Red Plum. These puppies are $2.50 right now, so after doubler = $0.50 each.

Hebrew Nat'l Hot Dogs are a good deal to me at $2.50.

Hefty Bags are $2 each. Last time this INCLUDED the producer saver bags. There were recently $1/1 off, so these would be free after doubler. I would for sure get some more for free!

And of course, don't forget the Campbell's $1/2 soup printable. Doubled = 2 free cans!

Can you tell I'm working up deals for my blog? LOL!

Sorry I did not post this earlier but here goes.

At one of my Albies they had the Kraft Deluxe Mac & Ch on the $1 aisle. I used two of the $1 Q's from the SW breast cancer flyer to start. Got a $1 cat for every 2. Then rolled and doubled the cats for free M & Ch.

So, keep your eyes on the dollar aisle. Ya never know what you might find there.

Melody, I think they were there for only a short time. I just got a few myself. If I had any extra I would share but those Q's are gone. Sorry.

It would still be worth it, I think, if you find them on your $1 aisle, to start with 2 and roll from there. Eventually your per item cost would get pretty low.

A couple more free with doubles:

nateNnatsmommy
10-22-2009, 02:09:01 PM
do you mean the chips, or the dough? I don't think that the $1/1 coupons were for the chips


I also had a Nestle Morsel $1/1 coupon from the 9/13 Red Plum. These puppies are $2.50 right now, so after doubler = $0.50 each.

I know I've posted this in separate threads, but I'm just wanting to cover my bases:
General announcement to everyone:

Don't be tempted to copy internet printed coupons. IT IS FRAUD, and a CRIME! Each coupon printed from SmartSource, General Mills, Pillsbury, RedPlum, etc., has a unique code stating the date and time of printing, and there may be other unique numbers or codes as well. Stores will only be reimbursed for the first coupon. If they submit multiples of the same coupon, they may be investigated for coupon fraud. Naturally, they will try to take it back to the source, the shopper. If it causes them too much trouble to weed out copied coupons, they can and will stop allowing printable coupons altogether. This hurts us all.
Unfortunately, unless a coupon is an actual PDF file, most coupons are connected to a software that limits the number of prints, either per computer, per account if you have to log-in to print, or total prints for a campaign. This puts a dent in the number of coupons we can all use, unlike insert coupons, where we can just buy or collect more papers.

So, how bad is it if you are caught using a counterfeit or photocopied coupon? According to CIC (the Coupon Information Center):
Penalties for those convicted of coupon fraud related crimes vary by each case and the number of laws violated.
As of this date,
Longest prison sentence: 17 years
Highest financial penalty: $5 million
Prison sentences of three to five years are not uncommon. Financial penalties generally vary, but have often been in excess of $200,000.

I know the economy is tough, but one way for us all to look out for each other is to make sure we're all following the rules. Hot Coupon World does not support any illegal use of a coupon, including copying them.

I know the economy is tough, but one way for us all to look out for each other is to make sure we're all following the rules. Hot Coupon World does not support any illegal use of a coupon, including copying them.


WOW WOW I knew it was illegal But 17 years????????? that is nut's , 17 years for coupon fraud and you might be in a cel with a murder ? crazy , but scarey to think someone would really do coupon fraud .

One of the Albertsons stores in my area said someone had come in and used a bunch of copied coupons. Since then they look mine over pretty well. It made me mad to think that someone could do that AND would ruin it for the rest of us.

My local WM told me a few months back, when I brought in a $10 Leapfrog Didj IP and they called the manager over to look it over, that a couple of ladies had gotten hundreds of dollars worth of something using IPs that made the items either free or darn near free. When WM submitted the IPs, they were told that they were only being reimbursed for 1 of them, because the others were copies.

My WM still hates taking IPs and most of the time, will call a manager over, even if don't have multiples and they are for lower amounts. I hate it when greedy people ruin things for the rest of us... :(

I think we're both getting better, and I think it actually was H1N1. Thank goodness we didn't have to go to the hospital or anything, but it does wear ya out. I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I've made a big Albies run! I'm gettin' rusty, and we need stuff to eat! I have a whole 2 bags of Nerds (found a B1G1F cat in Albies parking lot, LOL) for Halloween, and that's it. :whistle67:

There were blinkies for seafood by the frozen shrimp that I haven't seen at any other store, $2/1 Artic Shores frozen seafood, x 12/31/09 might make for an OK deal.
Some potentially good deals on the $1 ConAgra if there are weekend doubles.

They have a small shrimp ring for 8.99. It is on sale BOGO. You can use 2 $2 blinkies to get them for 2.50 each.
I did this last week. The shrimp rings were in a different freezer than the artic shores bags.

thank you to everyone who replied.
im going to try it on sunday with doublers .lets hope for some free turkey!!!
if not 1.00 a package is not all that bad.
ill keep you updated


It is not allowed to be combined with twice the value coupons which would be a doubler. Please don't ruin the doublers for all of us by misusing them.....

I have a question: why is it that my inserts do not have the same coupons as what's listed in the database???? Like the Mission tortillas. I have 3 copies of the Smartsource insert from 8/9/09 and that coupon is not in there. This has been the case for like the last 5 to 7 coupons I have searched for. I just don't get it. Does anyone else run into this? It's very frustrating!

Not everyone gets the same coupons unfortunately...We in Portland sometimes miss out some of the freebies, sometimes we get the coupon but its 30 cents on 2 instead of 75 on 1!! Unfortunately its the name of the game :rolleyes24:

Insert coupons very from region to region. It is just the name of the game.

Has anyone come across this situation? I went to Albertsons today to buy the Litehouse caramel dips. I had 3- $1.00 off coupons and had my doublers to go with it. When I walked into the produce section, I saw a tear pad with this on it:

SAVE $2.00 on APPLES!
*BUY any TWO (2) LITEHOUSE Caramel Dips in one transaction and receive $2.00 OFF Apples INSTANTLY with this coupon.

When I went through the line, the cashier told me that I couldn't use the last $1.00 coupon because the $2.00 coupon takes place of the 3rd caramel dips. So I went to ask another assistant about it because I wanted to clarify exactly what the policy was on this. He said that since it is a "Litehouse" coupon, this coupon is in essence money off of the caramels so I couldn't use another manufactured coupon with it but he said that he would check on it just in case. I called Litehouse and they said that since it is a "Litehouse" coupon that it really is considered doubling up on a coupon if I used the $2.00 cpn and the $1.00 cpn.

I disagree with this concept. If a coupon says it is money off of something else other than the items that you buy, shouldn't you be able to use manufactured coupons on the original items that you buy? I told the marketing dept. that they are deceiving the consumer with the language on this coupon. The lady was very nice and took my name and said she would send me some coupons. What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks,

Betty

This is always a YMMV situation - but I believe those apple coupons had some sort of wording (can't remember exactly what, I'd never seen the wording before) that fairly clearly excluded them from being used with the other coupons as well.

Here's the exact wording:
SAVE $2.00 on APPLES!
*BUY any TWO (2) LITEHOUSE Caramel Dips in one transaction and receive $2.00 OFF Apples INSTANTLY with this coupon.

(fine print)
CONSUMER: This coupon can be redeemed only for the brand specified. Coupon cannot be transferred, reproduced, sold or exchanged. Any other use constitutes fraud.
RETAILER: Litehouse will reimburse you for the face value of this coupons plus 8 cents handling provided you the consumer have completed with the terms of the offer. Void if copied, transferred, prohibited or restricted. Consumer must pay sales tax. Any other use constitutes fraud. Cash value 1/100 cents. For redemption mail to: LITEHOUSE INC. CMS Dept. 77661, 1 Fawcett Drive, Del Rio, TX. 78840 LIMIT: ONE COUPON PER PURCHASE. NOT SUBJECT TO DOUBLE COUPONING.

I called LITEHOUSE and they of course told me Albertsons view point because it is a promotion that they are doing only with Albertsons so they said that the intent is to take money off of the caramels and apples but I told them that that is not what the coupon states. It says $2.00 off apples wyb 2 Litehouse caramels. I also said that it is very deceiving to a customer especially one that uses coupons. They apologized to me and took my name and address and said they would send me some coupons for the misunderstanding. They didn't even know if the store would even get reimbursed if they would have taken all of my manufactured coupons along with the apple coupon. They were very nice about it and the main assistant did understand my viewpoint but was trying to follow what they were being told as a general rule. The part that I put in bold print is the only part of the coupons that would make me assume that maybe this coupon should be for the caramels and apples instead of apples only but still very deceiving.

It's the DOUBLE COUPONING wording - to me this seemed to be referring to the pairing of this coupon with the ones distinctly for the caramels. Just my interpretation of course.

I understand your frustration - if it'd been me, and they'd offered to send coupons, I probably would have made a comment about not being able to use them... ;0)

I'm not sure if I'm understanding their reasoning but at my Albies they have never let me use coupons on an item if I have another coupon that also includes that item.

For example if I had a coupon for "get $1 off cheese wyb wheat thins" and I had a couon for ".50/1 wheat thins" most people here would say I could use both and at other stores I could but at Albies they would say no because the first coupon covers both items.

My store has always been this way, drives me crazy.

It depends on what inserts the newspaper company buys. The Oregonian has (I guess you could call them "deluxe") versions of the coupon inserts that are different from the Statesman Journal (Salem area). The SmartSource inserts in the Statesman are about 4 coupons and mostly worthles ads. I usually grab a few of them on Sunday, but I grab a bunch of the Oregonian. There have been weeks where I could only find the Albertsons doubles in the Statesman Journal, so I always check both Sunday papers. *I'm in Woodburn... almost the midpoint between Portland and Salem*

Yes but why can't the Oregonian buy the really good ones :giggle2:
