Some of you are running into problems doing the Spend $30, Get $15 at Albertsons. Some stores are printing the cats when you spend $30 before coupons while some are printing when you spend $30 after coupons.
Here’s an update on how different Portland area stores are handling this promotion:
$30 before manufacturer’s coupons (GOOD): 181st & Glisan (must be $30 after doubles, but before manufacturer’s coupons), Wilsonville, Milwaukie (Hwy 224), Oregon City
**The diaper deal is rolling with the $5 baby cat at 181st & Glisan (and now Wilsonville & Milwaukie–check the comments)! And the diapers are $10! Here’s the scenario (this just worked Friday at noon):
Buy 3 jumbos ($30) & 1 pack wipes ($5) = $35. Use (3) $1/1 Pampers & (1) $.50/1 wipes, -$3 Albertsons doubles on Pampers, -$.50 Safeway double on wipes (cashier would not stack the doubles) = $28 out of pocket, receive $20 catalinas.
Roll the deal: redo transaction exactly as before. Pay with $20 catalinas & $8 cash, receive $20 catalinas.
Rinse & repeat. You use your last set of catalinas on food you need or to stockpile other fantastic deals. And remember, you do not have to use the cats immediately. I suggest you write the expiration date on your calendar so you don’t forget.
$30 after manufacturer’s coupons (BAD): 185th & West Union (Beaverton), 148th & Sunnyside (Clackamas), Troutdale, Sherwood (but one reader took her receipt to customer service when the cats didn’t print & they gave her a $15 raincheck), West Linn (one reader had a horrible experience, 1/9), Lake Oswego
Please comment with how your Albertsons is handling the both the food & the diaper deal.
