Can we use doublers with the manufacture's coupons on the back of the ad?

Ashley said...

Tried to use a $3/5 coupon this morning and they said that they were automatically doing that for us. That's what their deal is saying. i.e. 1 box of life is 1.60, when you buy 5 they take $3 off so they come to $1/each. What I'm wondering is if you can still use the other coupons (.55/1) on this deal or if that's considered using two manufacturers coupons? My coupons from ebay aren't here yet so I haven't tried. Does anyone know?

AJ said...

Juska2 - You can use a doubler with the coupons on the back since they are manufacturer's coupons and not store coupons.

Ashley - I really think you should have been able to use those. We've always been able to use coupons in conjuction with an instant savings promotion, they are two separate things unless there is a coupon required to get the promotion. In this case, there is not. Which store were you at?

Ashley said...

Vista and Overland. Hmmm... I guess I'll see how it goes for everyone else.

Rummfor5 said...

Hi Ladies! Thanks for all you do :)
I'm new to couponing and you are holding my hand as I venture forth :D
Question: Are the doublers (which I've never used before! And didn't know existed until now)only good to use *on* Sunday? I know a lot of people in the area who aren't Sunday shoppers ;) Will they be available for use on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday?
Happy shopping! :)

Tricia said...

Rummfor5 - The doublers that come out on Sunday are usually good for Monday and Tuesday too. They occasionally are good for longer - usually if there is a holiday that week (like over Christmas and new years the Sunday doublers expired Christmas Eve and New Years Eve respectively.) Other than those times, they have always been good through Tuesday.

Fabulessly Frugal said...

Tricia and AJ, thanks for answering questions!

Rummfor5 if you have anymore q's on doubles read this post. http://www.fabulesslyfrugal.com/2010/01/albertsons-doubles-101.html

Amy Conner said...

Was just looking at the paul's ad and the boneless pork country style ribs are $1.39lb, Boneless Pork Sirloin Chops $1.59lb, Bonless pork Sirloin Roast $1.39lb and value pack lean ground beef (81% lean) is $1.69lb. That's pretty good right?

Cathy said...

Nice find Amy! I've updated the post with the tid bits!

Frugal Chic Living said...

Thanks juska2 and AJ! I didn't even think to double those!! Sweet!

Ali Smith said...

Ok...so, I called the Albertson's on 12th & Greenhurst and was told that they are not doing ANY special ordering for the Quaker sale. :( I even asked to speak to the manager and was told the same thing. So....hopefully there will be enough boxes left by the time I get my Ebay coupons to get in on the deal! Anyone else have this problem??

Kodie Bear said...

I went to the Cherry Lane/Meridian Rd. Albertsons this morning. They have TONS of cereal/granola bars/etc. I think you could easily get 100 boxes or more without feeling like you are clearing out the shelves. Also, I used (3) $3/5 without any problem.

juska2 said...

I just used the $3/5 without a problem at the Eagle/McMillan store. The gals there seemed like they knew exactly what they were doing and how much each item should be ringing up. Does anyone know if there are still $3/5 at any of the Fred Meyer stores? My husband picked me up a bunch of the $3/5 at FM last week just because he thought I could use them. He had no idea a sale was coming!!!

Ashley said...

That's really good to hear about the $3/5 coupons working for everyone else. I guess I'll just go try them at a different store. Which ones is everyone using? The FM book ones, the FM copied ones, the Winco ones or something off of Ebay?

Emily said...

Don't bother looking for the coupon booklets at the Meridian Fred Meyer on Fairview/Locust Grove. They are totally out!

Cathy said...

Hooray! I'm glad the $3/5 coupon is working! I ordered mine on eBay and they were shipped Monday, but didn't come today. I'm assuming I'll see them tomorrow! I've never been so anxious about seeing my mail man!! Ha ha!

Ashley - so funny that we have to ask that Q about which $3/5 coupons people are using... so many choices!! Ha ha! 5&O manager told Amber they'd take them as long as they weren't photocopies. And I was there last night and they had TONS of stuff!

Savannah Wu said...

I tried to use the 1.00 off coupons for quaker oatmeal that we printed out off their website at Albertson's today and they told me they cannot take them because they're "counterfeit"... I was like "seriously." I had just printed them off their website last night. I'm so annoyed! Do you know what is going on?

Sarah E. said...

So the $1/1 quaker coupon from "create your day" is comming up as "fraud coupon" I was at the Albies on 12th and Greenhurst in nampa and was told they just recieved word from Quaker that the coupon is NOT VALID. Any one else hear about this?

Cathy said...

Seriously?!??!!? They pulled that trick during the last Quaker sale in October! There was a granola bar coupon from the Quaker site... and Albies wouldn't accept it. How annoying!

Sarah E. said...

Exactly.. that was my same thought.. I personally used 7 this morning at that store and sent my mom back later with 2 and they told her no.. I was pretty bummed but glad I snuck under the radar.. so hopefully they will post on here to let people know! just wanted to through out the heads up

Leslie said...

Are any stores taking orders for the Quaker stuff? How much stuff would you need to order to place one?

Cathy said...

Leslie - Check out this post (and I'd just talk to your store and let them know how much you want and they'll tell you if you should order or not).


I think the stores have a TON of product though! :) Good luck and let us know what store you're at and what they say (and the "ordering" post). :)

Leslie said...

Didn't end up placing an order because they had what looked like plenty...for now. Hoping they have some left to use doubles on! Glenwood and State took my $3/5 and $1/1 IP no problems.

Carol said...

I used 4 of the "create your day" coupons at 5&O today about 12:30, and they didn't give me any grief about it. The shelves were seriously picked over, though, with a lot of product already sold out. I assume they will restock tonight.

mandey said...

I was at 5&O just a couple hours ago and they refused my $1 oatmeal coupon. I hate getting excited just to be disappointed! I got tons of cereal though! :)

Amber said...

Carol, most of their stock in NOT on the shelves. It is down the main aisle by produce and on pallets over by the pharmacy. They have TONS of product. Seriously hundreds of boxes of cereal/granola bars and oatmeal.

Terry said...

I must have been there the same time as you Carol - I thought the oatmeal was picked over too....darn, I didn't look anywhere else. But, they took my $1 off coupons from the "create your day" thing - I feel bad if the coupons are fraudulent, but how was I supposed to know? I've never had a problem with red plum (wasnt it from red plum?) IP's before. Have they had problems? How does that happen?
