I had fun this afternoon at Albertsons, and just had to share.

I was a bit in a rush, so I quickly gathered a few coupons and headed over to my 5 & O Albies. I had a rain check for Quaker Oatmeal (back in January) that I needed to use before my $1/1 coupons expired.

I also wanted to take advantage of the movie deal - and bought 10 boxes of Kellogg's and finally used my $1.50/1 coupons I bought on eBay a while ago (cereal came to $1/box... not too bad!).

And lastly I wanted to grab a few things on the Kraft/GM Deal.

So off I went. At check out, I was counting my cash and hoped my $40 would cover it. (Didn't calculate at all here!)

Before I knew it (she was an awesome cashier), she told me my total: $20.04.

Hu? Are you sure?

Her response: "Yes! After all those coupons! You did a FABULESS job!!"

I couldn't help but smile....

2 movie tickets and 24 items in my cart. All for $20.04. Most definitely FABULESS!

I was told that rain checks were only valid for up to 30 days... do you know the rain check policy? I had a rain check for skippy peanut butter $1 each, but they told me it had expired /sadface.

Tina - Luckily, I have ANOTHER rain check in my purse, so I decided to actually READ it! And you're right, it does say with in 30 days of issue! I've used rain checks on 3 different occasions and never had a problem. Truly an honest mistake here! Oh the irony! Right after our "The Honest Coupon Way" post! Oh well, I'm still FABULESS!! ;)
