Albertsons DOUBLE DEALS 10/11-10/13

If you didn't see, we announced that our insider Amy gave us the scoop on the doubles (in the print section of the paper).

So I'm having my baby on Monday. I'll be missing this round of doubles. But here are some FAB ideas! Feel free to help me out (Monica is gone!) and list some that you are planning on doing! Thanks FABULOUS READERS!

Treetop Juice Boxes $1.00
DOUBLE: $1.00/2

M&M and Mars Fun-Size Candy $2.50
DOUBLE: $1/2 from 9/27 RP

Carefree Pads $2.50
$1/1 from 8/30 SS

o.b. Tampons $2.50
$1/1from 8/30 SS

Stayfree Pads $2.50
DOUBLE: $1/1
FINAL PRICE: $.50 each

Yoplait Yogurt $.50
DOUBLE: $.50/6 or $.75/4
FINAL PRICE: $.33 - $.12

(receive $5 instant savings wyb 10 participating Quaker items - see previous post if you need more details and to see other "non-coupon" items that are included (and still a FAB price!))

Granola Bars & Dipps $1.00
DOUBLE: $1.00/2

Quaker True Delights $1.50
DOUBLE: $1.00/1 from 8/23 RP

Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix or Syrup $1.50
DOUBLE: $1.00/2

Basically you're going to pick up $10 of items, get your $3 instant savings, so you're down to $7. Then use 3 $1 off coupons (or more) and 3 DOUBLES, and you're going to get $10 of items for $1.00 or less!! So it really doesn't matter what you double, as long as it is valued at $1.00!

$2.50 Welch's refrigerated juice cocktail 64 oz.
$2.00 Wet Ones Single or Tub 24-40 ct.
$2.50 Smart Balance peanut butter 16 oz.
$1.00 Ronzoni Healthy Harvest pasta 13.25 oz.
$1.00 Ronzoni Healthy Harvest pasta 13.25 oz.
$1.00 Playtex disposable gloves 10 ct.
= $10 of items

- $3.00 Instant Savings
- $1.00/1 printable at this link (Smart Balance)
- $1.00/1 OR $1.00/1 OR $1.00/1 $.75/1 from 8/16 SS (Welch's)
- $1.00/1 printable at this link (Wet One's)
- $1.00/2 or $1.00/2 (Ronzoni)
- $1.00/1 from SS-5/3 (Playtex)
- $3.00 using 3 "Twice the Value" coupons

FINAL PRICE: MONEY MAKER (you'll need to get some filler items!!!)

OK OK - that's a pretty fab scenario. But chances are a lot of that will be GONE!

Another idea:

$2.50 Colgate Premium Toothpaste 4-6 oz. (Total)
$2.00 Emerald peanuts 16 oz.
$2.50 Hormel Sliced pepperoni 6-8 oz.
$2.50 Smart Balance cooking oil 48 oz.
$1.00 7UP, Sunkist, A&W 2 liters
= $10.50 of items

- $1.00/1 (Nuts)
- $1.00/1 (Colgate)
- $55/1 (Pepporoni)
- $1.00/1 (Smart Balance)
- $3.00 using 3 "Twice the Value" coupons

FINAL PRICE: $.95 plus tax

Not too shabby!! So what are YOU going to do??

(I think I'm going to have my hubby go get me some free Welch's while I'm in the hospital - save some for me over there at 5&O!!)

The Treetop Printable is actually $1/2, not $.50/2. They will be free with the coupon and a doubler! (Don't worry Cathy, you can blame everything on the baby for 2 more days...lol).

Cathy said...

Ha ha Amber!! You make me laugh! I'm going to need a 6 month buffer for my memory loss! :)

The Hendricks ID said...

I am definetely excited about doublers for the quaker promo.
THANKS for the inside info on doublers!!!!!!!

Samiam3 said...

You are so awesome. I am planning on doing some doublers with some of the Barber frozen chicken foods and some other items. The frozen chicken is a good meal if you don't want to plan something extravagant.

Cheryl_hiccups said...

I don't see any doublers... I see a $10 off $50 purchse coupon. (Page A14 of the Statesman.) What did the Trib get? Anyone?

Lisa said...

no doublers

Cheryl_hiccups said...

(Forgot to turn on email follow-ups.)

Cheryl_hiccups said...

Lisa, which paper do you get?

Ali Smith said...

Yup....no doublers in the Statesman...I scoured the entire paper at least three times...I'm not missing something, right? :(

Cathyb said...

No doublers in the Pres Tribune either. Just the same $10 off of $50. Can the $50 be before coupons? If so it might actually be better for me than doublers as I could do it all in one transaction and it would be like getting 10 doublers all in one transaction.

Cheryl_hiccups said...

Cathyb, the coupon says to redeem after store and manufacturer coupons. However, this *might* be a YMMV type situation, because I know I've had a checker or two who have redeemed these type of coupons before man coupons in the past. Can't hurt to ask. I also like to use these coupons when I need to stock up on meat. I'm not too impressed with their meat sale this week, though, so I might give this coupon a pass altogether.

Jody said...

I can't find any in the Idaho Falls Post Register, although we got the same 10/50 coupon.

Leah said...

Hi Cathy,

I got to schedule my due date with my last one too and I swear the last 2 days were the longest in my life so I bet you cant wait for tommorrow! Congrats on your newest family member :)

Amy Conner said...

I just wanted to apologize about the doubler scoop. I called my dad first thing this morning when they weren't in there and he said it was a last minute change. He said Albies is slowly going to be filtering out doublers and are going to try some new things in the process. SORRY EVERYONE!!!

Amy Conner said...

I also used that coupon that came in the paper today and they did it before coupons so I paid $23 for $55 worth of stuff. more than what doublers would have saved me. :)

Cathy said...

Sorry for being MIA today! Just been pretty much exhausted and getting ready for the little one! Sorry that I got you all excited about doubles! But at least we got something, right? Sad news to hear that doubles may be leaving us :( BUT good news that Amy was able to use the $10/$50 before coupons! Happy shopping everyone!
