If you are wanting to do the promo (Spend $20, get $5 back), then it really doesn't matter what coupons you double, just make sure they do the ones that are valued at $1.00 (there are scenarios at the end)!!

I clicked on the arm and hammer and there was no coupon for the detergant.

Rachel @ burpiebaby.blogspot.com said...

nope, no detergent coupon..

also, correction on the welchs juice.
It is $2.99, so it is .99 with doubles. i just bought it this morning.

if you cant find it, it is .99 at walmart also, with coupon.

last week was better. i got welchs cartons for .79 at albertsons with doubles...

QUESTION ABOUT "DOUBLERS".

I can't seem to find the answer on my own... I live in TX. My albies only doubles up to 50. It looks like yours may double to $1. Is that right? Otherwise, it looks like you're putting 2 different coupons together (possibly from diff. sources) and using them to purchase 1 item. Ie. arm & hammer detergent. Is this right? I need some clarification.

MUCH THANKS!

Stacy,

Yes, Idaho Albertsons double up to a dollar. Hope that clears up the mystery :)

Cathy said...

Stacy - Cheryl is right, here in ID, they let us double coupons that are valued at $1.00 or less. The only time you can use TWO coupons for one item is if ONE coupon is a STORE coupon, and the other is a MANUFACTURER coupon. If there are multiple manufacturer coupons listed, it is only to give people more coupons to use so they can purchase more of that item. Hope that helps!

Rachel/Danette - I checked it last night and was able to print one off, but I do see it's no longer there. Bummer! I've removed from the post. I guess they reached their print limit!

Here's a doubler deal I found last night:

Libby's wax beans cans on clearance for 89 cents. Used the $1/3 coupon from last Sunday's Parade magazine and doubled it, so 3 cans were 67 cents!

I know not all stores clearance the same way, but I did find it at 2 stores. (Cherry & 10 Mile and Fairview & Meridian. Fyi, I cleared the shelves at both stores. There weren't that many left anyway.)

Just thought it might be worth checking at your store if you like wax beans and have doublers left. :D
