I LOVE YOU BILL from Albertsons @ Meridian and Fairview. There, I said it. And you all should say it too. He is the Coupon King and manager at my Albies location. He promotes coupon deals like no other store in the valley and he treats coupon moms with the respect we deserve! If you ever have a question or need help with a sale he's your go-to-guy. You'll usually find him at the front of the store amongst the weekly deals. He's the dashingly handsome man with red hair, (Bill, I'm buttering you up for some more coupons!) While I'm singing praises I also love Alex from the same location and Denny from Eagle/McMillan.
Feel Free to give a shout out to your personal favorite cashiers as a comment! Having a employee who knows the policies and treats you with respect is refreshing and makes me want to shop at their store!
It also makes me want to play by ALL the rules. I asked Bill about the policy on accepting the $5 off $25 rite aid coupons and he said that they do not accept $ amount coupons, just products. Albies is liberal with SOOOO many policies and accepting competitor coupons that I respect them not taking that coupon. So let me get up on my soapbox for a moment and say, Don't try to sneak that coupon by your cashier. Now I'll get back off my high horse.
I've got another way you can save $5 besides the rite aid.
When you buy 16 boxes of Orville popcorn you get a $5 catalina that prints at the end of the transaction. This week's promo is, of course, buy one popcorn get 3 free.
-So here's how my transaction went:
-16 boxes of Orville Popcorn
-paid for 4 boxes @ 2.99
-Used 4 $1 off coupons (Bill clarified you may only use ONE coupon per 4 boxes, since you're only paying for one. Let's respect this rule too ladies)
-So then I was at $8 for 16 boxes of popcorn and got a $5 catalina.
-Net $3 spent for 16 boxes of popcorn!
Another great deal that no one's blogged about yet is goldfish crackers. They're 2/$3 and the bags have $1/2 coupon on them, so they end up just being $1. I got a few bags. There are also tear pads for $1.50/3 goldfish($1.50) and 1 pepperige farm natural baked snacks ($2.50).
Heather was right on the Del Monte Fruit Cups. They're marked 2/$3 but they ring up for $1 each- minus coupons.
And lastly thank you to Nate for letting me profess my love to men you've never met. And for being home with the sleeping kids this morning while I was couponing. I love you (in addition to Bill :)
