This is a real question and my real answer from a friend on Facebook. If you have questions you'd like me to answer post a comment, find me on Facebook, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do all my grocery shopping at Albertsons. In my opinion Albertsons is the best place for coupon shoppers to shop for 3 reasons.
1-Albertsons accepts all competitor coupons. They take Fred Meyer coupons, Red Apple coupons, Safeway coupons, Saar's Marketplace coupons and others. All of them! As long as it is a grocery store coupon they will take it.
2- Albertsons will combine their sales with competitor coupons. So for instance, this week Albertsons has a horrible "sale" on Kellogg's cereals: $3.29 each and when you buy 3 you get a free box of Pop Tarts. (That is not a sale, that is highway robbery!) But . . .Safeway has a coupon for one box of Raisin Bran or Shredded Wheat for 99 cents and Fred Meyer has a coupon for $2 a box (5/$10 but you don't have to get all 5). So now you get 3 boxes for a total of $5 and get free Pop Tarts!
3-Albertsons stacks coupons. This means that you can combine an Albertsons coupon/sale with a competitor coupon AND a manufacturer coupon. So in the example above where your using competitor coupons to get your cereal and Pop Tarts you can further reduce your price by using manufacturer coupons. On the Kellogg's website you can print two $1 off of one box of Frosted Flakes. In last weeks Sunday coupons there was a coupon for 70 cents off one box of Kellogg's cereal. These manufacturer coupons reduce your $5 to a mere $2.30 for 3 cereals and one box of Pop Tarts!
So that was kinda long winded. The longest note I've EVER written on FB. But hopefully it answers your question.
Albertsons is my store!
