Albertsons is once again offering a pretty sweet gift card promotion:
Buy $100 in participating gift cards through December 8, 2012, Get $10 Catalina
- Amazon (jackpot!)
- Nike Store
- Spa Finder
- Nordstrom Rack
Here’s the funky part — the weekly ad shows this promotion runs through December 22, 2012, so I’m not sure what is going to happen on December 9. Perhaps they will change out the participating gift cards? Maybe they just put a post-it note over the end date with the new one?
The $10 Catalina will most likely expire seven days from printing. Only one Catalina will print per transaction and you must use your Albertsons Preferred Card. If you want to purchase more than $100 in gift cards, split your transactions. You can only redeem one Catalina per transaction.
One last piece of info — I don’t think this promotion is running the Puget Sound area? Make sure you see this promotion advertised in your store before you complete your transaction as gift cards are not refundable, even if the Catalina doesn’t print out.
Wondering what a Catalina is? A Catalina is a coupon that prints at the register when you complete your gift card transaction that gets you $10 off your next Albertsons transaction. It’s basically like getting $10 in FREE groceries. There are exclusions listed on the Catalina — you can’t buy certain dairy items, stamps, gift cards, tobacco, lottery with the Catalina. Most everything in the store is fair game.
