Most of the coupons I used are available at Albertsons or you should be able to do most of these deals as well!! Good Luck!


  1. Hey girl! It's amanda again. I went to Albertson's on College Hills and called the manager on duty today and no one has ever heard of taking ECB or RR at the end of the transaction. Where do you shop and who did you talk to to have this much success???

  2. I shop at Albertsons on College Hills. I don't know why they would tell you that...I've done it three different times now with no problems at all. The manager I talked to is named Elaine, and she told me that if I ever had a problem that I should just tell the cashier that Elaine approved it. She even made a copy of the coupon policy that corporate Albertsons emailed me that states very clearly that they will accept one competitor coupon per transaction. Hope youare able to make it work for you!!

  3. So anytime we can use our ECb or RR at Albertons?

  4. Just a note on using coupons...always check your receipt to make sure they used all of them. I have realized twice now that I left Albertson's without them including one of my now I have to go back and get them to fix it!!
    By the way, you need to keep putting that cute little boy in your pictures!! :-)

  5. After taking up the coupon policy that Albertsons emailed to me and showing it to Elaine, she said that she would honor it. Only ONE competitor's coupon per you'd be able to use one RR or one ECB. I've used both there, the Register Rewards scan like a normal coupon will and the Extra Care Buck had to be manually entered. Let me know if you need me to clarify more :)
    Leta, he's a little sweet pea, isn't he? :)
