So what to do
with all those
First a little
“Twice The Value”
What are they?
Albertsons “Twice the Value” coupons (or “TTV’s”, “Doublers” or “Doubles”). You can use THREE “Doubles” per transaction. This will allow you to double three of your coupons. The coupons must be $1.00 in value or less.
Where can I find them?
When we have them (and it seems that we get them nearly every other week), they will most often come in the Sunday newspaper. Most often in a slick one page advertisement as shown above, but we have also seen them in the actual print section of the newspaper, and one time they were in with the coupon inserts!
The only way you can get them is in the newspaper. So we strongly advise signing up for a Newspaper Subscription. Not only will you receive multiple copies of the coupons and ads, you’ll also recieve multiple sheets of Albertsons Doubles. In just one Sunday, you’ll pay for your subscription with the value of all the sets of doubles you’ll receive!
When Can I Use Them?
When they are in the Sunday paper, they are valid for the last three days of the sale (Sun-Tues). Usually, when it is a fab sale, we will do three transactions in a row. We will use one set (a “set”contains 3 doubles) per transaction. Per Albertsons coupon policy, you can do three transactions in a row.
What is the best way to use them?
To get the most bang for your buck, double the ones valued at $1.00! Remember that it is Albertsons policy to adjust the value of the doubler down if the value of the doubler would exceed the cost of the item (creating overage). Example: if you were to purchase a box of crackers that was on sale for $1.75, and you doubled a $1/1 coupon, you would be “making” $.25 off the product. While you would always have other items that would absorb the cost, the cashier will adjust the coupon down to $.75 so you would get the crackers FREE (still not bad!) vs. getting paid to buy the crackers.
Sometimes I’ll use my doubles and only purchase 3 items… this is when I leave the store paying $2 or less for a number of items.
Other times, I’ll use them in conjunction with a promo. When doing this, I’ll just make sure I have three “$1.00 off” coupons to double and then I’ll plan on my total out of pocket being an additional $3.00 less.
