AWESOME-insane-CRAZY-Albertson's Deal

Okay, here's the scoop on the Albertson's deal this week. The promotion involves purchasing 10 General Mills items (see your flyer or go online), when you do this, you'll get a $10 coupon for your next visit. Here's an example:

The Betty Crocker frostings are 4 for $5, you should have a $.50 off coupon for them. Your total for purchasing 10 items would end up being $7.50, so you're making a PROFIT of $2.50! Plus, you can also take that $10 coupon and do it all over again and another coupon for $10 will print out, repeat, repeat. Basically, you are getting a perpetual $10 bill (but in a coupon form). WOW!

Here are a few tips:

You'll need to go over the paper yourself and find out what coupons you have and what things you may need. You'll get the best deal with the least expensive items, but you most likely wont need a gazillion frostings-so choose according to your needs.

I like to use the long self-serve line and before that I seperate my 10 items into groups in my cart along with the corresponding coupons. I put my first group up to pay, purchase and then grab the $10 for the next group of 10.

One extra deal going on. If you purchase 5 boxes of granola bars you'll also get a $3.50 coupon (if you purchase at least two you'll still get a coupon, it will just be less). If you purchase 5 fruit snacks (I believe this applies to Gushers and Roll-ups) you'll get the same deal. Here's the scenario:

5 boxes of granola bars-$10 (used the $.50 off coupon)
5 boxes of fruit snacks-$10 (used the $.50 off coupon)

-You will end up getting a $10, $3.50 & $3.50 coupons -Voila! You o
nly paid $3 for all those items-PLUS-you can take those coupons and do it all over again, and again!
It took me a little bit to figure it all out, so if you have any questions, please email me at

Here's what I got today by rolling those coupons. Total out of pocket $7.00 and some change.
