My Albies trip this morning

I've skipped the last few rounds of doublers at Albertsons, but this week was just too good. I spent $1.54 and saved $111.89 for everything in the picture above! That's 8 boxes of potatoes, 12 boxes of cheerios, 10 boxes of cake mix, 10 tubs of frosting, and 1 butterfinger (so I could use the $2 survey receipt I got early on this am to help pay for the cake mix/frosting deal). You can bet I'll be headed back in for more fun with doublers!

    Could you please say how you did this trip? How many times did you go thru the line? It would be awesome to duplicate this. Thanks

  2. Sally, of course! I did 4 transactions (2 at each of my closest stores). Here are the two transactions I did:

    transaction #1:
    5 BC Cake Mix
    5 BC Frosting
    used 5 "save $.75 when you buy cake mix and frosting" q's from last week's inserts and three doublers. Total comes to $1.50 after the promo discount and all coupons.

    transaction #2:
    6 boxes Cheerios
    4 boxes BC Potatoes
    used six $1 Cheerios peelies and two $1 off 2 BC potatoes peelies plus doublers. You'll get a zero total (if you're lucky enough to find the right q's in store).

    Hope that helps some! There are also tons of $.50/2 peelies for the BC potatoes and $1/2 cheerios blinkies or $1 cheerios printables that you could use to try to work the deal if those are the items you want/need. Happy shopping!!

  3. *forgot to say that I added a $.50 butterfinger to one of the cake mix/frosting transactions and that's what I used my $2 survey/receipt coupon on. I paid $.04 in tax for the candybar

  4. Maygan, WOW!!!

    I haven't been to use my doublers yet. Thanks for listing the transactions. I didn't see the peelies for the potatoes when I looked the other day. I will look again and look for the cheerio ones too. Thanks!


  5. Jane, thanks. it was one of those trips where evrything just kind of fell into place perfectly. I did go back tonight and lucked out when I saw one of my favorite cashiers- he went back and tracked down a stack of doublers for me. These were definitly some things worth stockpiling :)
