Albertsons is considered one of the most coupon-friendly stores around (it’s in 16 States,
mostly in the South and West.) If you learn their policy, you can save a considerable
amount during your weekly shopping trips.
Albertsons sales generally run from Wednesday through Thursday, with the Ads coming
out on Tuesday or Wednesday. You can always pick up a copy of the ads at the store or
on the Albertson’s website.
The first thing you should do is pick up a Preferred Savings
Card. It’s FREE to sign up and you can do it right at the store. This is a must if you plan
to shop Albertsons because sales prices are only good for people who use the card.
NOTE: ***Albertsons stores are actually owned by two separate companies. SUPERVALU, which operates Albertsons stores on the west coast and the northwest. Albertsons LLC operates the stores in the Southern half of the US, from Arizona over to Florida, plus Colorado. While the two companies share a brand name, there are some differences and what applies to one Albertsons store does not necessarily apply to them all. The most significant difference is, they no longer have the Preferred Savings card, and the post on your site encourages readers to sign up for one.
If you check out their page on Facebook – there’s a link on the side that discusses their coupon guidelines. Because they market each store for the individual area that it’s in, they do not have an all-encompassing coupon policy.
The preferred savings card only applies to Albertsons stores in CA, OR, ID, WA, NV, WY, MT, and UT. Texas does not have a preferred savings card.
Like any other store, Albertsons follows the stated requirements on the coupon, accepts
only the original coupon (no copies) and can be used only once. Most of us know that
already. Here are some things you may not know:
-Coupons that exceed the value of an item will be adjusted down to the price of the
-Rain checks will be issued for a store coupon unless coupon says “while supplies
last”. If the store
runs out of item on sale – always, always, always ask for a rain
-Only one store and one manufactures coupon can be used on one particular item.
-Competitors coupons will NOT be accepted.
Albertsons internet coupon policy:
-Barcodes must scan
-Coupons for a FREE product without a required purchase are not accepted.
-You may not have more than one coupon with the same serial number.
-There needs to be a manufacturer address on the coupon.
Albertsons is also known for it’s Twice the Value coupons (also known as doublers).
These are keys to getting all the free stuff. These coupons are store issued and are
generally found in the Sunday Ads. You never know when they are going to be issued
but most of the time you will get a heads up.
Twice the value coupons will match any amount of one manufacturer coupon that is $1
or less. The matched amount will be in addition to what you would already save. You
must know that only three (3) twice the value coupons can be used per transaction.
Coupons that say Do Not Double (DND) will still be doubled with the twice the value
coupon. But twice the value coupon may not be combined with other store coupons.
Again read the Albertson’s coupon policy to better understand the ins and outs of their
One more thing you need to know, Albertsons requests that customers do not exceed
three (3) consecutive transactions. So if you are planning an extreme couponing trip to
the store—make sure you fit everything in 3 transactions.
