Albertsons soda pop & tuna fish

UPDATED!

So, I stumbled on a way to get 10 free 2 liters with only 3 doublers (one ad) and thought you might try this instead. I bought 10 of the two liters for $12.00 and for some reason it took off $4.00 instantly, rather than the $3.00 that I thought it would (YMMV). So that made it $8.00. Then I used 5 of the -$1/2 MCs, making it $3.00. Then I used 3 doublers, making it $0. So I paid 30 cents for tax for 10 - 2 liters of soda. This is for Sunkist, A&W, 7up, Cherry 7 up and Diet 7up!

As far as the tuna fish goes - the product wasn't delivered like it was supposed to be today, so it looks like we'll have to wait for the next big tuna fish sale. (The tuna fish was only on the 4 day sale). Is anyone else bummed about this like me?

I got a call from the grocery manager at the 36th/State Albertsons last night. He has a special vendor coupon for -$1/2 on the 2 liters of 7 up, Sunkist, and A&W rootbeer. With this coupon and a set of doublers from the ad you can get 6 of the 2 liters for free.

If you buy 6 of the 2 liters per transaction:

Buy 6 @ $1.20 each = $7.20
Get $2 off instantly -$2.00
Use 3 coupons for -$1/2 -$3.00
Double 2 coupons for $1/2 -$2.00
Use 3rd doubler for the last $.20 -$.20
=$0 just pay tax again!

He also has some coupons that will make for free tuna fish, but the product won't be in for a few days. I will post as soon as the product arrives!

I wish the managers in WA were this nice!

Thanks for posting that Tricia! Now if I could only get over to that albies location? We love A&W. We like to use our breyers vanilla and little A&W and make rootbeer freezes in the vita mix. Yummy!

Where do you get the $1/2 MCs?

Tricia said...

The -$1/2 MCs are vendor coupons that some Albertsons have. I know that 36th/State St has them. I also heard that one of the Caldwell stores has some (I believe the one by the stadium). You could call other stores near you to find out if they have any (I'd usually ask for a Grocery Manager). Or you could head over to 36th St. Earlier today they still had a lot left over! Has anyone else seen these coupons at any other locations???

Michele, we do have great managers here at our stores! I forget how lucky we are - thanks for the reminder!

Thank you!
I was able to purchase 12 2 liters for .78! This went perfectly for my family gathering on Saturday. The cashier and manager were very pleasant and helpful. A great couponing experience.

Smullin Family - I'm so glad it went well! They are so great at that store.
