Albertsons So Cal Albertsons So Cal Leah B. No picture, but I have two different shopping trips to Sol Cal Albertsons I am very proud of. They are by far my best as I am honing my strategic couponing skills. The first trip on 03/28 my OOP was $81.89 with a total savings of $154.68. $84.35 Preferred Savings; $45.33 MFG Coupons Savings; and $23.00 Store Coupons Savings THe second trip on 04/20 my OOP was $53.74 with a savings of $94.52. $6.00 Bonus Buy Savings; $62.23 Preferred Savings; $16.29 MFG Coupon Savings; and $10.00 Store Coupon Savings My tactic for both of these trips find the $1.00 deals and match with a coupon; makes for a terrific buy. Desirae I usually have a hard time saving at Albertsons, I either don’t buy the right products or the checkers never scan all of my coupons correctly and I usually have to go back after checking my receipt so I’m pretty proud of my shopping trip today! (The checker did skip one of my coupons but I was watching and caught it!)

Total OOP $16.74 Total Savings $56.02 LeighAnn I hardly ever shop at Albertsons just because they don’t double coupons and I always find better deals at Von’s and Ralph’s. Today was a different story. I decided to tryout the FREE cheese deal on my way home from work. I love buying cheese in bulk because it freezes nicely. I ended up get 2 things of chicken breast on ‘reduced for quick sale’ and $2.50 each, 1 CoverGirl make up for .74 cents (after coupon, good thing I needed some bad), I got 10 bags of cheese, 2 bags of frozen veggies, and 2 bags of stuffing all for $20 and still have my 2 $5 catalinas. All in all Albertsons wasn’t so bad this week! Sarah [img]http://thekrazycouponlady.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/09-17-2010 251-1.JPG[/img] Spent $7.43 at Albertsons!
