Got this email this morning from Rocio.

Need to ask you a question, this morning in my sunday newspaper(san diego). I received an albertson’s 3 day sale flyer with 3 Double the Value coupons. This is the first time I have seen these. Can you please tell me how to best use these?

First off I have to say Yipppeee for all my Calfifornia readers, I admit I do not think it was  fair that up till now you have been left out of the whole double coupon promo.  I hope you all got them and will get some thrifty deals.  Here are a few tips to remember while trying to use them.

You can use 3 twice the value (double coupons) per family per shopping trip.  They will double any coupon up to the value of $1.00 making that coupon twice its value.  SO if you use a .75 cent coupon it will double up to $1.50 or if you use a $1.00 coupon it will double to $2.00.  They will not double a coupon for $1.01 or more. They will not double a coupon that says do not double, or not subject to doubling.

Did anyone else get these in California?????

I just had my first twice the value coupon experience in So Cal Albertsons!! I asked the cashier if lots of people had been in with them today and he said, No you are the first. Made money on the fruit snack deal with them, so exciting. When I would email them they would reply that there was not a "need" for them in California. We have to spread the word so people will use them so they keep them coming.

Hello there! I am from Boise ID, but I don't get these Albertson coupons for some reason. I just started my subscription a week ago, but I got my grandmas before that for a couple of weeks and she never got them either. All the rest is always here, just not that one. Is that normal or I am missing out on something I should get. Thanks, I am very happy for all of you in CA though!

Just an FYI, here in Oregon, The Oregonian hasn't had the doubler coupons in months (at least not the rack papers) ...but the store will have them when they're available. So I don't waste money buying the other papers just for doublers. And often the local (weekly) free paper will have a doubler insert as well.

Yes I got mine (Venture CA). I actually got several more papers just for the good coupons. Then I went home to get all the ads out and I just glanced at the ad when I flipped it over onto my recycle pile there was the doubles. Boy did those go into my keep pile really quick. I can't wait to use them and excited to have several with my extra papers. yippie!! I hope they do this on a regular basis.

Then God must of heard me because he granted my wish over night!!! Sunday morning DOUBLERS at ALBIES for the first time ever!!!!!!! first thing in the morning my friend called and left me a message about this exiting news that I had already new about by looking in my paper. She left me a message and as I was listening to it on speaker phone my husband was standing next to me and said what the heck was that all about all I know it was something to do with coupons of course!! I laughed and said it is coupon language and said it was almost like she was speaking a foreign langauge for you huh hunny! He said, yes you girls are NUTS and walked away. HA HAHA HA! get Shoppin SO cal GIrls!!!!!!!

We got them here in Las Vegas as well (another Land Of No Doubles)! This is the 2nd time we've received them. I think the first time was about 6 mos ago.

Yearsssss ago Las Vegas grocery stores almost all doubled coupons. Then they stopped, and even during the recession, where I figured they would make a come back, they did not. =( I would get 10 or more items free each shopping trip just from the use of doubling coupons. I miss them.

I hope it spreads into Arizona soon. I'm jelious!......... have fun shopping with your Doubles. By the way does it come in an ad or a single piece of paper flyer?

Yay, yay, yay, it was worth it calling them and emailing them so many times this last year. Good work all those that kept asking corporate for them :)

Yes, in Nevada we received them too. Yes...I took a picture of this beautiful little coupon because it's rarely seen. Did a coupon matchup too. Really it's such a blessing when we see these type of coupons. For the states that do not double (like Nevada - my state) it's extremely frustrating and hard to follow blogs that do. So this is a treat...enjoy everyone!

OMG, I am so excited. We FINALLY got them too. In southern CA. I honestly stopped reading your blog bc I felt like all you ever talked about was Albertsons and they were deals I could never get. Now, I can't wait to see what matchups you have for this week.

Yes, you are spoiled in New England!!! So is Arizona! San Diego doubles NOTHING!!!!! Von's is the only place, but then you are paying more to shop there. It is very frustrating.

Kathleen

Are we spoiled here in New England? Our stores double coupons everday up to $1. We sometimes get in our flyers triple coupons or coupons to double dollar coupons. Is it not that way everywhere??? If so I will stop pouting that we don't have Publix here

I went into Albertsons the other day and the cashier didn't think I could use a "Twice The Value" coupon with a manufacturer's coupon. She called her manager and it turns out that they can double coupons even if they say "do not double." Not sure if it depends on the manager or not, but Kari @ Fistful of Coupons said that she spoke with the corporate manager and she confirmed they can double coupons even if they say "Do not Double."

WOW! I didn't believe it til I saw it with my own eyes!!! I read this post and ran outside to grab my LA Times - they are there. Quick question, they say "Up to $1", does that mean a $1Q doubles to $2 off?

I sure did. I was reading my paper with my coffee finally about an hour ago and saw the Albertson ad. I think it is pretty cool but I don't remember seeing them before. However, the Ralphs by my office still doubles coupons. Is that unique? Marsha

Yes!! I thought that I must have received the wrong paper! But,lo and behold, a small insert from Albies and on the bottom....Double the Value! Incredulous..... By the way, the paper I get is the LA Times.
