*Most of the coupons in the General Mills Promo are printables that you can't double (unless you were lucky enough to get the 2/7 GM insert. I don't have that one so I couldn't tell you if those are DND or not). So once I get it all sorted out, I will post scenarios for you!

And of course, we will post more double finds as the week progresses. If you find any great ones - please share!! :)

So excited about this. It was not looking so good at first, but now I am thinking it might be worth a trip out there.

I was just looking through my coupons for this and discovered something neat. A few weeks ago, there was a Betty Crocker coupon booklet you could register for (maybe on the Boxtops site? I can't remember). Mine came this week, and it has good coupons ($1/2 brownie mixes, etc.)...and they are double-able. A lot of the Betty Crocker/General Mills say DND, but these do not. One of them is for $1/2 frosting, so I think that would make some free frosting if you have the coupon.

I noticed in the ad the tuna that is $1 is in a can, not pouch..... all the coupons are for tuna pouches. Do you know if the tuna pouches are the same price??

smiling_mama said...

Your so Awesome! Thank you...Thank you...Thank you!!!

Saunders -

You're right, the cans are on sale for $1, but the pouches are too! You'll find them on page 4 - top right. :) YAY for free tuna!

Shannon said...

I went to Albertsons today and checked and the pouches are 1.00. However there were not many on the shelf so I saw my favorite stocker and told him about doubles and that those would be free. I told him to order more and asked him to special order me 14 and set them aside. He was happy to do it. Yah, this week I won't miss out.

Julie said...

A while ago (the last time there were doubles, I guess) there was that Activia coupon that came to your email inbox, and it was a bricks coupon and double-able. I just wanted to let whomever I was talking about that with before know that if you check your email again, there should be another email from Activia congratulating you on finishing your first week of the challenge...and that email has a link to another bricks/double-able coupon. Hurrah for free yogurt (not this week, I guess, but soon I'm sure).

The Saunders Blog said...

Woo Hoo!! Free tuna! :) Thanks

Julie said...

Do you have problems doubling a MFR coupon that states DO NOT DOUBLE? I have seen this a lot on different blog sites and if you read the fine print of the twice the value coupon, it does not state anywhere that they won't double those coupons. That is on the (MFR)coupons to protect the MFR. Albertsons pays the double amount, not the MFR. So you aren't breaking the "DO NOT DOUBLE" on the coupon.
I have never had any problems with this and didn't even notice it until I started seeing it on blogs. After a fiasco at our local Albertsons, a local coupon blogger called the Head manager and asked a lot of questions, including this one...he said there was no problem doubling those coupons and that to help with that confusion, Albertsons calls these coupons "Twice The Value" instead of doublers!

Just trying to help!!
Check it out with your local Albertsons...

Kendraa -

Yes, this is something that we've been dealing with for awhile now. And around here, majority of the stores won't double. Sadly, it's just one of those YMMV things.
