I paid $6.76 and I’m bringing home bargains!

Albertson's deals

Although this trip isn’t as impressive as some others, it’s still great!  The Progresso soups came out to 30c each (regular price around $2.50+) and the rolls were 79c each (regular price $2.99+).

How did I do it??  Albertson’s had the soups on sale $1 each.  I had coupons for $1.10 off 3, plus the Albertson’s doublers.  Bought 12  cans of soup, had 6 coupons and 6 doublers.  The rolls were on sale for $2.79 and I had $1.00 off coupons, plus the Albertson’s doublers.  Bought 4 packages, had 4 coupons and 4 doublers.

Now, if you know Albertson’s, you know you can only use 3 doublers per transaction so I had to ring up 3 different transactions, which is no big deal for me!

$6.76 plus 92c tax = $7.68 oop
