Albertsons 2/24 – 3/2

::EDIT::
General Mills Pormotion isn working when you spend $20 BEFORE coupons. See HERE for updated prices.
I’ve got some really really bad news folks. Brace yourself. Seriously though, it’s bad!

Albertsons has changed the rules on us this week. General Mills is running a “Catalina” promotion starting Wed., when you buy $20 worth of selected GM products, you will receive a $7 coupon good to use on your next order (or what we like to call a catalina or OYNO). Normally, you would only have to reach $20 BEFORE coupons.

For example, if cereal was $2, and you had a $1 off coupon for each box, you would only have to buy 10 boxes to reach $20, even though your total out of pocket would only be $10, and you would then receive the $7 catalina. It would look like this:

10 boxes of Cereal = $20
-(10) $1/1 coupons = -$10
Pay: $10
-Get $7 OYNO/Catalina
Total Cost = $3 for 10 boxes ($.30 each)

This week, Albertsons has changed the fine print to read $20 AFTER coupons, so the scenario would look like this:

20 Boxes of Cereal = $40
-(20) $1/1 coupons = -$20
Pay: $20
-Get $7
Total Cost = $14 for 20 boxes ($.70 each)

As you can see, the savings is dramatically different! AND there is a limit of one transaction per customer! Yikes! What are we to do?? How are we to stock pile with all these new rules? Even if you came back once a day to do one transaction, you may also have a problem using the $7 OYNO on teh next order, without having to add in $7 woth of product to make sure you stay at $20 AFTER coupons.

We’ll just have to follow the rules and see how all this plays out. Hopefully this is a one time thing :).
