Before sale price or coupons this would have cost $32.88
I was able to get it all for$1.28
I got a late start today with the kids home from school for Christmas break… so by the time I got to Albertsons many of the deals I was looking for were gone. But I did not give up because I knew there had to be a few thrifty deals to find 🙂
I was excited to see that the Up2U coupon for $1.00 from the 1/1 smart source insert, matched with a twice the value coupon would make them free. But when I checked out saw that the cashier allowed overage on the coupon… I totally forgot about Albertsons new Policy that allows overage.
Coupons that exceed the retail value of an item will have the remaining amount applied to the balance of the transaction. In the event a transaction balance results in a “credit”, additional items WILL be added/suggested to the order to utilize the remaining value of the coupon. We will not provide any “cash back” on coupons; however we will provide full redemption value.
So when the cashier rang up my gum this is how it worked
Up2U gum $1.49
- used $1.00 off coupon from 1/1 smart source
- also use a twice the value coupon found in ad from Sundays ad insert, took another $1 off
- which left me with $.51 overage to apply to another item!
I was way excited, as I had no idea my store would allow overage on a twice the value coupon.
I then did 3 transaction (each with 3 packs of gum) and 3 sets of twice the value coupons… and put the overage towards produce!
