April 5th Inserts: All my Wildest Dreams. . .

I got all 5 inserts and Albertsons is doubling! Woo hoo! There are 3 Albertsons double coupons. Again, they will double coupons up to $1 in value Apr. 5-7th.
Additional restrictions: One double coupon per manufacturer's coupon.
Three double coupons per family per shopping trip.

I have been following this blog for a few weeks now and just love it! There's so much great advice for saving money. I've decided that I am going to try couponing and become a KCL!! I even bought my first Sunday paper today. :)

I have a few questions though. When you use your coupons, do you need to have the cashier do multiple transactions for you, or can you buy everything in one? Do you give your coupons to the cashier at the beginning/end of your shopping, or as they scan each separate item? Can you use 2 manufacturer coupons at once, or do you have to use them separately?

Thanks for all of your help! You guys are all great.

Just to clarify....only one particular type of coupon doubled per transaction or shopping trip. Does this mean I couldn't double all my Post coupons in one transation?

Mandy...You can use your coupons in onr transaction or many. It really depends on the deal you are going for. For example in the Post cereal deal (see previous posts) you WANT to do multiple transactions because for each 5 boxes you buy, you get a catalina for $5 off. (this is a coupon which prints out) If you were to do multiple transactions, you'd get more catalinas. Make sense?

Most cashiers I have found scan all on coupons at the end. It really depends on them. I always like to ask them what they prefer.
If I'm just getting a few things with coupons, I usually put these at the end so I can personally track and be sure they give me the right prices.

You can use two manufacturers coupons which are the same on two DIFFERENT products. You can't use two on the same product. So if I had two $1 of coupons for Kellogs cereal, I would have to buy TWO boxes.

Hope that helps!

I was wondering, is there a place I can get Sunday papers on Monday or do I need to call the newspaper place directly?

Mandy said...

Thanks Andrea! That information definitely helps. I really appreciate it. This world of couponing is so interesting and I love learning about it and saving money! All of the ladies who post on here have such great advice and ideas.

Ok Mandy- Most of the time you can use all of your coupons in one transaction. You can use one manufacturer coupon per item, but you can have multiple coupon per transaction.
I usually ask my cashier if they want the coupons at the beginning or end of the transaction.... It usually just depends on their preference.
Andrea- You can double 3 post coupons or 3 different coupons... It's up to you... Does that answer your question?

Rachel- I would go to Walmart for Sunday papers. They sell them all week for $.95 each (cheaper than they will deliver the Idaho Statesman for!)

Rachel Williams said...

Thanks Heather, I will have to do that. Do they have the papers in the front of the store or somewhere else?

Mandy said...

Thanks Heather! That helps a lot. :)

Brittany Iverson said...

5 inserts! It's raining men!

The Albertsons Ad for Utah says "See other side for Hot coupons"... but there are no coupons, just ads. I wonder if there was a mixup... darn :(

photobec said...

I guess too many of us Utahn's used the prior doubles. :) So sad. :(

Sharee said...

For those who get multiple copies how do you use up all your doubles? Do you leave the store after each transaction and come back to use three more? Or do you just do a couple transactions and use 3 doubles per transaction?

Where are the Albertson's double coupons? Did they come in the Sunday paper? I didn't see them in mine.

MacLerran Family said...

I didn't see the Albertson's Doublers in the Statesman or the Times news here in Twin Falls :-(

Did anyone else find them in the Statesman or Times News?

L& J said...

no albertsons double coupons down here in st. george, utah! i'm jealous.

Heather Wheeler said...

Sharee- For me personally, I either take my husband so we can each do one transaction, or I just go several different times in a day... Sometimes I am brave and just ask my cashier if she minds if I do a few in a row...

Tanner- The doublers came in the Sunday paper, It was a single piece of Paper, and in the statesman it was by another one of the inserts.

MacLerran Fam- I found mine in the Statesman here in Boise, but I am not sure about the Twin Falls paper.... Sorry!

ttanner said...

hmmm...I guess I'll have to look a little more carefully through the paper. Hopefully the Albertsons's doubles are there. Thanks.

hmmm. I got 4 Idaho press tribunes and didn't see ANY albertson's add. I did get tons of coupons though!

So, I went to wal-mart today thinking I'd be able to get a few Sunday papers and apparently the wal-mart here in Orem, Utah doesn't carry Sunday papers after Sunday. So, I ended up having to go to the daily herald office and paying $1.50 for a paper, Boo.
