Albertsons IS accepting competitor coupons through the first week of April. I have had three different employees tell me three different dates so I don't know if it is the 4th, 5th or 6th, but it is in there somewhere. They claim that there will be great sales every week to include double coupons like the ones in this weeks ad but no one really knows for sure.
Many of you have asked what to do next? Where do we shop now? and I've been really hesitant to jump in and give a definitive answer. I will likely shop wherever the best deals are each week. This may take me a little more time in planning because I'll have to search through all the ads but it'll be worth it.
Several of you have pointed out the Walmart accepts competitor coupons and matches advertised sales. I have not shopped there with competitor coupons or price matches so can't really give my opinion. However, I do know that they recently received approval and are working on permits to add a food section this summer--Hello SuperWalmart! If you've had experience shopping at Walmart with coupons will you fill us in on any rules or requirements that they have, please.
