Albertsons: Rolling catalinas to maximize your transactions

Albertsons has boneless skinless chicken breasts from the butcher block at $1.69 per pound this week, which is an AMAZING price.  Not to mention that they will wrap them up in any quantity you like, so you can just throw them in the freezer when you get home.

I knew I was going to spend money on the chicken either way, so I decided to make my money work for me by rolling the catalina coupons from the Nature Valley granola bar deal.

Here’s how it played out:

Transaction #1
(4) Nature Valley Granola bars $2.50

Subtotal: $10
Used (2) .75/2 Nature Valley coupons
Paid $8.50, Got $7 in catalina coupons

Transaction #2
(4) Nature Valley Granola Thins $2.50

Subtotal: $10
Used (3) .75/1 Granola Thins coupon from 6/26 SS insert
Used .50/1 Granola Thins coupon
Used $7 in catalinas from previous transaction
Paid $.25, Got $7 in catalina coupons

Transaction #3
(10) lbs boneless skinless chicken breast $1.69/lb

Subtotal: $16.90
Used $7 in catalinas from previous transaction
Paid $9.90

Total spent: $18.65, which is just a few dollars more than I would have paid had I only bought the chicken

I know some of you have been having trouble finding the Granola Thins (I am pretty sure I got the last four sad little boxes on the shelf at my store), but please remember that the regular Nature Valley granola bars are a great deal too.  They aren’t free like the Granola Thins, but at $.38 per box, you are still getting a smoking hot price.  I was more than willing to pay $.38 so my husband could have an easy snack to take to work.
