Jana Bone is a member of our Texas Yahoo Group (and the girl is loads of fun too)! These pics are from her Albertsons Triple coupon shopping sprees.
 
In Austin,TX our local Albertsons stores for a few days tripled coupons up to $.50 and doubled up to $.75! We all did really well, including myself.
 
Jana did great tho! Pictures 1 & 3 were from 3 seperate trips and the totals of those trips were 180.01 before coupons and 24.31 after coupons.  (the 24.31 included 10.50 for a 24 pack of beer...that is not included in the pic) .  Picture #2 was from one shopping trip that was 164.28 before coupons and 15.71 after coupons.  She now has enough manwich to send off for three rebates (it allows three per household). She also got a TMF (try me free) rebate on the Vlasic pickles for 2.00.
 
Below is a list is the Qty, item description, price each, coupon value (before the double/triple)that Jana used.

 **note** when she bought the Hunts tomatoes she bought equal amounts of spaghetti  sauce and tomato sauce in each trip so that the coupon was being applied  to two items - 1.00 and .25. The .45/2 tripled was 1.35, so it was .10 over for  each set. On one trip she had enough spaghetti sauce so just got 2 tomato sauces  for .50 ;-)

This is a pic of Deanna's TGIFridays stuffed freezer!!

Deanna is in our local YahooGroup. Last Friday and Saturday Albertsons doubles coupons up to $1 and tripled coupons up to $.75!
 
In front of the TGIFridays frozen appetizers, there was a blinkie machine spitting out $1 coupons-those doubled to $2. These were on sale for $2.50 your cost on each box was $.50!
 
To make this deal a little sweeter, the "stuffed potato skins" had a coupon on the box for a free bottle of Kens Salad Dressing (blue cheese or ranch)!!!
 
Hope Deanna got a few of those too (looks like she did).
**Thanks for the pic Deanna!
