Well you guys (and gals ;)) know that I was a little hesitant to take on doing Albertsons coupon match-ups, but I'm so encouraged by all the shopping success many of you are having there. Thank you so much to those of you who have sent me e-mails and left comments about your trips. It really makes my day and all the hard work so very worth it! Check out the e-mail that I received from reader Amy tonight:
To thank you for posting Albertsons match-ups, I want to share with you how much I saved on my shopping trip today. I have been playing their Monopoly Game and some of the game pieces are Albertsons coupons. I used both Albertsons coupons and manufacturer coupons for the C&H Sugar and the Planters Peanut Butter. Another coupon I won through the game was a free bag of Cheetos. The Dentyne and Trident gum were on clearance for $0.96 each and I had (4) $0.75 off coupons which doubled, so the gum was free too. I paid $16.36 before tax. This would have cost $59.53. I saved $43.17 or 72.5%. As an added bonus, today was double Monopoly day, so I got twice as many game pieces as I normally would have, so more coupons to use next week.
Congratulations on your great trip Amy and thanks so much for taking the time to share. I know that some of you have had a rough week at Albertsons, but I hope that Amy's trip is an encouragement to you.
Don't forget to get the Bargain Blessings toolbar to print coupons and stay up to date on all the latest deals!
