As many of you may remember, I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Portland, Oregon over the weekend of October 22nd-24th in order to film a shopping episode at a West Linn, Oregon Alberstons store. Why West Linn, Oregon and why Albertsons you may ask? Angie, Hip2Save’s 3rd “Follow You Monday” winner, lives in Oregon and requested to shop at Albertsons… so off we went!
We had a great shopping experience thanks in part to the wonderful customer service we received, so a BIG thank you to Wayne, the Albertsons manager who welcomed us into his store, answered all of our questions and even gave us more than a few coupons! 🙂 And a BIG thank you to Angie who came equipped with her coupon binder, a great attitude, and lots of patience to deal with me, my sis, and my grandma. …So on to the video!

Albertsons Coupon Policy
It is always important to familiarize yourself with a store’s coupon policy. Here is a quick breakdown of Albertson’s Coupon policy. Albertsons will accept the following coupons…
(1) Manufacturer Coupons
(2) Store Coupons: These are discounts offered by Albertson’s directly for purchases within their store. Keep in mind that some store coupons will only be valid with your Preferred Card.
(3) Internet Coupons: Keep in mind that Albertsons will NOT accept internet coupons for any item offered free, any coupon redeemable for excess of $5, or any coupon where the UPC bar code is either absent or unreadable.
(4) Catalina Checkout Coupons/Rebates printed from an Albertsons store: Keep in mind that Albertsons does NOT accept Catalina coupons from competitors.
(5) “Twice the Value” Coupons (aka Doublers): Doublers can be used to “double” the value of any manufacturer coupon up to $1 in value. For instance, if you have a 99¢ manufacturer coupon, you can use the doubler coupon to save $1.98 (double the value of the 99¢ coupon). “Twice the Value” coupons are typically only available to be used during certain days and are not available every week (and sadly, they were not available during this filmed shopping trip 🙁 ). They are usually found in the Sunday paper and/or in the store ad.
In addition to a wonderful shopping adventure, I also hosted an awesome reader dinner in Portland on October 22nd. Thanks so much to all the readers who attended… it was so great to meet all of you! Hope you enjoy the pictures below! 😀
