Albertson's Great Double Coupon Deal

Due to a wedding in the near future and a wedding shower in the very recent has been just about too busy to coupon much less blog about it.  However, today I got such a great deal at Albertsons that I had to take the time to brag about it!

These Nature Valley Granola Thins normally cost $4.29 per box (I definitely would NOT pay full price for these) but they were on sale for $2.50 a box.  I had (5) coupons for 75 cents off which I then was able to double at Albertsons so I paid $1.00 for each box.  BUT...because I bought 5 boxes, I earned the following rewards:

1.  A register coupon for a free gallon of milk (up to $4.50)
2.  A register coupon for $5.00 off my next shopping trip
3.  and ANOTHER register coupon for $3.00 off my next shopping trip

But that is not all ~ I received several game tickets and one held a coupon for a free DOZEN fresh baked doughnuts from Albertsons bakery.

So...for $5.00 of out of pocket (OOP) expense...I earned about $15 or $16.00 worth of goodies.  Not too bad!

This Week At Albertsons...

Look at what I got for $2.40 at Albertsons...

It took 20 coupons and taking advantage of 10 get $5.00 off (I got this twice in one transaction)...but I was able to get 10 boxes of pasta, 5 jars of pasta sauce and 5 bottles of salad dressing...all for $2.40.  Full retail would have been $ I saved $56.90 or 96%...woohoo!!!

Next ~ it was on to Target.  I was able to get 5 packages of Zyrtec for 74 cents each...normally $5.29 each.  I also bought 10 small boxes of fruit rollups.  I am not sure if that was such a great deal...with a coupons I was able to get a box of 4 rollups for 75 cents.  This isn't something I buy very often but I had a Target gift card and thought I would get these for Cassidy.  Retail for this would have been $36.45 ~ and I paid $8.44 (I did use a $5.00 gift card).

Finally I ended up at Fred Meyer for a pretty good deal on toilet paper.  It has been very hard for me to find toilet paper for awesome deals.  The coupons that come out usually have a very small value so I can't seem to get really good deals.  However, Fred Meyers had a coupon in the Sunday paper for $4.00 off a 12 double roll package of toilet paper...bringing the cost down to $4.99 (full retail is $8.99).  But...I was able to download an electronic coupon on to my Fred Meyer for $2.00 and I had another one on there for $1.00.  So...I was able to get (2) 12 (double roll) packages of toilet paper for $7.90...which included the SST.  I saved $10.08 on this for a 56% savings...not extreme but still a pretty good deal.

How did this day go overall? 

Full Retail: $113.73
My OOP:   $  18.74
Savings:   $  94.99 aka 84%   YIPEE!
