Albertsons 101: How The Krazy Coupon Lady Shops Albertson'sThe best deals at Albertsons come when you pair a promotion with sale items, manufacturer coupons, a Catalina promo, and Double Coupons! Albertsons’ weekly ad runs Wednesday to Tuesday.

Part 1: Coupons accepted by Albertsons

Manufacturer-issued coupons: These coupons are found in the free standing inserts in your Sunday paper: Smart Source, Red Plum and Procter & Gamble, and also magazines. Albertsons will not accept any coupons (including manufacturer coupons) that feature another store’s logo.

Printable Coupons: Albertsons accepts valid Internet printable coupons. They must be legible, have a valid remit address, and a scannable bar code. Albertsons will not accept Internet Coupons that are over a $5 value or for a “Free” product that does not require a purchase.

Catalina Coupons: Gray Catalina machines located at registers dispense long, receipt-like coupons. Catalina coupons may be store or manufacturer coupons. They can be for a dollar-amount off your next transaction or a specific product coupon.

Store Coupons: Albertsons store coupons are found in the weekly circulars, coupon booklets available in-store, and email savings coupons. Albertsons allows stacking a store with a manufacturer coupon.

Part 2: What makes Albertsons KRAZY!

Promotions: Albertsons runs two great types of promos: Save Instantly and OYNO (On Your Next Order).  Pair these with manufacturer coupons for the best deals.

Save Instantly Promotions: Example: Spend $20, Save $5 Instantly
The register instantly deducts $5 after you spend $20 (total before coupons) on participating products and scan your preferred card. You may take advantage of this promo multiple times in one transaction.
Example: If you spend $40 on participating products, the register will deduct $10 (twice in $5 increments)

OYNO Promotion: Example: Spend $20, Save $5 On your next order (OYNO)
Your total before coupons and tax must be at least $20.00, then present any coupons and pay. With your receipt, your cashier will hand you a Catalina coupon worth $5.00 off your next order. These Catalinas can be rolled. This means you can do one transaction, receive the Catalina, do another identical transaction, pay with the first Catalina and a new Catalina will still print.
Example: $20.00 pre-coupon total, present $17.00 worth of coupons. Out of pocket $3.00 and receive a Catalina for $5.00 off your next order. 

Twice the Value Coupons: Some regions distribute “Twice the Value” Coupons or Doublers. Doublers are Store Coupons that double any manufacturer coupon up to $1 in value (i.e. a $1.00 manufacturer coupon paired with a doubler is worth $2.00 off). Doublers are Store Coupons and cannot be used in conjunction with another Store Coupon. See Doublers and store for restrictions and limitations on the number of Doublers allowed per transaction and per day.

Never miss a coupon, deal or freebie again!
