Just a random comment from another "coupon virgin". I'm still confused on when you can double coupons at albertsons.

So, you can double them when they are from the albertsons newspaper ads or ads of competitors?

I thought you could double internet coupons, but then read on the ones that i printed... no doubling.

thanks! i made my first trip to albertsons with coupons this week. my hands were litterally shaking at the register-- having to make the seperate transactions & everything. but, i thank you for you excellent blog! i saved $178 and hope to do better as i learn more!

Jess- At Albertson's you can use one store coupon (either from their ad or a competitor's store coupon, ex. Target's printables, or Walgreens) and one manufacturer's coupon.

You can never double a manufacturer coupon here in Idaho unless Albertson's has their double coupon- coupons in their ad.

Does that make sense?

Great Job on the shopping trip! It gets less scary as you do it!

Way to go on your first trip! It gets easier the more you do it. So, about the doubling at Albertson's. It's not something that they regularly do. There have been two weeks in the last few months where they have had "double" coupons in their store add. You had to have the actual coupon, from their add, in your hand in order to double your manufacturer coupons. You were limited by the amount of store adds you had and by the amount of doubled coupons they'd allow per transaction, it's not like you could take a whole handful of coupons and double them right then. So, it's not something you could walk into the store tomorrow and do, it's an actual promotion that they run. We'll definitely let you know if/when they do it again.
