ALBERTONS: Who, What, When, Where, How Much... your deepest questions answered!

WOW - it's been a busy few days in our little blogging world with all the comments and emails! We've got {holy moly} FIVE Albertsons threads going right now... and they've all got comments regarding different aspects of the sale!

It's all quite a mess! SO - for the locals here, let's keep each other informed about what store is accepting what coupons, and how well stocked your store is.

To keep the comments an easy read, could you write it this fashion?
{no, I'm not usually a comment Nazi!}


STOCK: 5&O has it comin out their ears... look by the pharmacy!

$1/1: Nampa stores WILL NOT accept this coupon!

$3/5 COUPON: Cole and Fairview would not accept this coupon!

$3/5 COUPON: 5&O WOULD accept this coupon!

This way, when you want to come and check out what is going on at the stores, you can just skim through the comments to find what you're looking for!

Be sure to read Carlee's post right underneath this one! She's found more coupons!!!

Quaker Coupons

More Quaker coupons. OK everyone I opened a box of oatmeal from the deal today and I found 7 different coupons in there. There is $1.00 off 2 boxes of Life cereal, $1.00 off 2 boxes granola bars, and $0.75 off 1 box instant oatmeal that makes it .25 each (yes i need more). Just wanted to let everyone know if you didn't get them on ebay.

Walgreens Diaper Stock

This morning I went to the Overland/Meridian store to get my three packages of diapers only to find that they are limiting!!!!!

1 pack of diapers, per day, per customer, NO EXCEPTIONS!

You could purchase 1 wipe, 1 enfamil and 1 diaper, not a good deal!

So FYI  for any of you thinking you might stop by there while in the neighborhood.

How is the stock at other stores?
At O/5 this morning they had N,1,2, a few 5 and 6. NO 3 OR 4. :(

Feel free to share what you know in the comments!

Hey there folks!  Here are some extra savings that we have at Overland & 5Mile for you guys. 
Dasani 24pk is priced at a low $3.99 - but we also have a $1 off coupon on one 24pk = $2.99
We only have a limited supply of coupons (enough for the pallet in front of the Pharmacy) and when they're gone, they're gone. 
We also have some $2 Off 2 Pepsi 24pk coupons - so they make it $5.99 each.  Both of these coupons are at the checkstands.
Lastly we have some more of the Bronco bars from Dream Chocolate. 
If you'll remember they are the ones with a coupon for a pair of tickets to a BSU sport event on the inside of the wrapper. 
Normally most of the coupons are for Women's basketball, gymnastics, or wrestling, but there are some Men's basketball mixed in there. 
Dream Chocolate has brought out some new "Perfect Season 14-0" bars and they will have the normal amount mix of Men's basketball tickets.
However, Dream Chocolate has loaded up this last batch of chocolate bars with 50% of them being Men's basketball tickets.
So for $1.80 you could have a $18 value.
Remember that all the ones (EXCEPT the new 14-0 Perfect Season) have the 50% mixture of Men's basketball.

Exclusive Albertsons Double Deals

The Albertson's by the out-let malls has an awesome manager/store.

He forwarded this snapple deal along (he has 100 coupons available at the front desk)  and said he has 300 coupons for the nesquick chocolate milk coupons 0.40/1.  Double them and it will make them 0.20/each. 

Here's the cool part.  He said he will have extra doublers{if people need them} on tuesday night from 8-midnight and have 2 checkers reserved just for couponers.

Snapple starts at 2 for $10, when you buy 2 you save $2. So now they are at 2 for $8. Mail in rebate is for up $6.99 off when you buy 2. That brings the total to $1.01 for two six packs. Once again the rebate is only for diet. Get your rebate and coupon at the Gowen Store!

Save money when you efile your taxes

Just wanted to let you all know about TAXACT to do your taxes. I haven't found anything out there that compares in price. Last year I was able to do both state and federal taxes on their website, print out a copy for myself (for my records) and efile (both state and federal) for $18.00. I used another tax software (I had been sent a trial version) and checked to see if they came out the same - TAXACT actually caught a few things the other one didn't. So, check it out at It has saved me for the last few years. I haven't checked their prices this year, but they have always been way below other companies (when you are wanting to efile).

Last Minute Double Deals

I shopped the Nampa Greenhurst store today and noticed that they had
Crest toothpaste for $1.64.
Whitening expressions vanilla mint and Crest Pro Health Night
Use the $1/1 from P&G 12/27

I have seen toothpaste marked down at the O/5 store so keep your eye out at your store!

Also look for the disposable roasters for .25. They were in the freezer aisle.

Suave Proffesionals .99 at Albies 5 mile and Ustick

I just got 12 bottles and only paid tax using my $1/2 coupon. There is plenty left, only the ones in the orange bottle and some brunette types. All other types were regular price.
Make sure you watch how the ring because one of mine was regular price and the cashier had to adjust.
