Lunchables for $.79 at Albertsons

I just got back from Albertson's, where I decided to splurge on the Lunchables with water, priced at $3.79. With a $1.00/1 coupon and a doubler they were an okay deal at $1.79 each. I bought 2- and much to my surprise I received a $1.00 Catalina, good on my next order. So, I went back and got 2 more- and bought them separately, and received a $1 Catalina on each of those purchases. (I love when I get rewarded in the midst of my splurges!)

So here's the Nitty Gritty:

Transaction 1:

{BUY 1} Lunchables with Water $3.79
Double the $1.00/1 Oscar Mayer Lunchables with water
or this one $1.00/1 Oscar Mayer Lunchables with water
Final Price OOP: $1.79
Earn a $1 Catalina

Transaction 2,3,4,5, ect :

{BUY 1} Lunchables with Water $3.79
Double the $1.00/1 Oscar Mayer Lunchables with water
or this one $1.00/1 Oscar Mayer Lunchables with water
Also use the $1 Catalina to pay
Final Price OOP: $.79

Did it say how long it lasts?

I have heard that you can double the $1 cats, so couldn't you double that too, and get them for free?

I also found a new cat. When you purchase 3 Diagorno for One pizzas, you get a $2 cat that prints out as they scan. So last night I bought 6 pizza for ones and got 2 $2 cats that the checker used on that same order. It was pretty fun to be surprised by that.

So the cat prints out if you just buy one at a time?

Krissi said...

I would also like to know if that's true that you can double cats!

Heather Wheeler said...

HeatherT: It didn't say how long the Catalina was running... Sorry!

Sara and Krissi: It will depend entirely upon your store, as to whether or not you can double catalinas. My store usually lets me. I just have to add in another item, so that I have more items than manufacturer coupons. Some stores will not allow you to.

Our little (growing) family: The Catalina prints when you buy 1.

The Albertsons I shop at used to double the $1.00 Catalinas. But they do say Do not double on them so once they stopped doubling the DND coupons they stopped doubling those as well :( And I bought two lunchables today and no catalina...do you have to buy just one at a time?

I am a cashier at Hilcrest Albertsons. I (and some others at my store)will double the $1 cats. It cannot exceed the price of the item or make you go negative before tax. I usually reduce the doubler accordingly (even though we don't have to.) I would in this in this instance reduce the last doubler to $.79, making all but the first one free, just pay tax. It is a great deal. I work in the evening. I am not sure what the daytime people do, but if the Front End Manager give you a ruling on it, then you know for sure.

Multiple cats will print at one time, so save yourself some trips through the register. I bought 3 at once and got 3 cats back.

are the cats printing out on any other lunchable or just the ones with water?

Just got the BEST Lunchable deal ever @ FM. 6 lunchables for $1.50 total when you factor in the cat. I had 5 $1 off coupons and they were on sale for $2.50 ea. there was a lady doing samples and she gave me 1 free lunchable coupon. It printed out 6 cats at the end so I just split up my order and purchased everything else in the next transaction. So I got my lunchables for $.25 EACH!!!!!
