Albertson's Mega Sale Scenario: $3.55 for 10 items or $8.65 for 20 items


I listed some of the great deals at Albertson's this week in my post last night, but I wanted to give you guys who are just starting out and have never shopped at a sale like this (and they rest of you too) a simple, easy to follow scenario using readily available coupons.

In the Albertson's sale that began yesterday, for every 10 participating items you buy, you get an extra $5 savings at the register.  You must buy participating items in multiples of 10 or you pay $0.50 more per item.

I have come up with a 10 item scenario and a 20 item scenario for those of you who are a bit more ambitious. =)

10 Item Scenario:
--Buy 5 32oz Powerade          @      $0.59      =        $2.95
--Buy 1 Hunts Ketchup           @      $0.79      =        $0.79
--Buy 2 Pillsbury Crescents     @      $0.79      =        $1.58
--Buy 2 Pillsbury Sweet Rolls  @      $0.79      =        $1.58
                                   Total Before Coupons  =      $6.90  
--Use  $1.00 off 5 Powerade                                  -$1.00
--Use  $0.25 off 1 Hunts (triples)                            -$0.75
--Use  $0.40/2 Crescents from 4/17SS (doubles)    -$0.80
--Use $0.40/2 Sweet Rolls from 4/17SS (doubles)   -$0.80
                                         Total After Coupons =   $3.55  




20 Item Scenario:
--Buy 10 32oz Powerade           @           $0.59       =       $5.90
--Buy 1 Hunts Ketchup              @           $0.79       =       $0.79

--Buy 2 Pillsbury Crescents        @           $0.79       =       $1.58
--Buy 2 Pillsbury Sweet Rolls     @           $0.79       =       $1.58
--Buy  3 Grands Biscuits            @           $0.79       =       $2.37
--Buy 2 Cheerios                       @           $1.79       =       $3.58

                                     Total Before Coupons      =     $ 15.80
--Use  2  $1.00 off 5 Powerade                                      -$2.00
--Use  $0.25 off 1 Hunts (triples)                                    -$0.75
--Use  $0.40/2 Crescents from 4/17SS (doubles)            -$0.80
--Use $0.40/2 Sweet Rolls from 4/17SS (doubles)          -$0.80
--Use  $0.40/3 Grands Biscuits  4/17SS(doubles)           -$0.80
--Use 2 $0.50/1 Cheerios (doubles)                                -$2.00
                                   Total After Coupons =                $8.65


Hope that helps a little bit with matching up coupons to sales.  There are many other items included in this sale, so feel free to change these up as you like to get the items that you need.  Also, for this type of sale it is important to be flexible.  I always bring some back-up coupons in case the store is sold out of any items.  Then I can quickly replan and rebuild my list of 10 items so my plan isn't completely blown!  

If you do decide to head over to Albertson's this week, be sure to check out my list of meat and produce sales to see what else you might like to pick up while you are there!

Good luck shopping this week, and I would love to hear about your trips!
