Since SuperValu sold Albertsons to Albertsons, LLC in June of 2013, the coupon policy has changed. You can view it here. But basically they are letting each store determine their own coupon policy. So it is recommended you become familiar with each stores rules on coupon acceptance.
We’ve got exciting news for Albertsons Intermountain West shoppers! Last October, Monica and I were invited to the Albertsons corporate headquarters to help identify what in the Albertsons coupon policy needed to be clarified. Because of your comments and emails, as well as the frustrations we experienced first hand, there was some clarification needed. Key issues we suggested needed clarification and/or needed to be re-evaluated: BOGO coupons – combining a store BOGO sale with a manufactures BOGO coupon and getting both items free. Twice the Value Coupons – some shoppers needed clarification about using them to double store coupons, we had readers state that they were able to use a store coupon AND a Twice the Value coupon. Overage – in some cases, 1 manufacturer coupon is worth more than the product. Albertsons used to adjust the value of the coupon down. We pointed out that they would be reimbursed by manufacturer for the full value of the coupon and therefore would not lose any revenue. The coupon policy was difficult to find and a downloadable copy would be preferred so couponers can keep one in their binder for clarification while in the store.
New Additions to the Albertsons Coupon Policy… effective 12/17/11: Coupons that exceed the retail value of an item will have the remaining amount applied to the balance of the transaction. In the event a transaction balance results in a “credit,” additional items WILL be added/suggested to the order to utilize the remaining value of the coupon. We will not provide any “cash back” on coupons; however we will provide full redemption value. Albertsons offers of Buy One, Get One Free (BOGO) promotions in their weekly advertisement can be combined with Buy One, Get One Free manufacturer coupons to result in BOTH items being Free. The items in the manufacturer coupon must exactly match our weekly advertisement offers and meet the redemption criteria. Albertsons will accept ONE manufacturer coupon and ONE store coupon on the same qualifying item. (Twice the Value coupons are considered a store coupon.)
