Late last night (Wed), I was at Albertsons on Eagle/McMillan. They had a good supply of Kraft shredded cheese, but were almost out of brick. They were out of Cool Whip and hot dogs. Went today to Cole/Fairview, good supply of cheese, no hot dogs or Cool Whip - truck coming Saturday. Overland/Orchard had some hot dogs (no I didn't take all of them), Cool Whip lite and Sugar Free (no regular), and absolutely, no Kraft cheese. I may be looking for some more hot dogs, but that's about it.
Hope this helps you some.

Beginning this Sunday 8/29/10, Treasure Valley Albertsons will be trying out a new program. We won't be getting the doubler coupons that the rest of the region will be getting. We will start a new program, that does not require an additional coupon - I think it's being called Rounding. Very simply, any coupon under $1 will be automatically "rounded" to $1 by the register. So, if you have a 25c coupon (i.e. Bounty, or Puffs), it will "round" to $1.
A complete explanation of the trial program will be in Sunday's paper. Since there won't be doublers, you don't need to run out and buy multiple papers, unless you want the coupon inserts!
The reason behind this trial program is to counteract all the customers who have taken their doublers to Walmart. I personally hate shopping at Walmart, so I'm definitely not one of them. This is a trial program and my contact at Albertsons urged me to call Customer Care to voice my opinion of this program. If this program continues, I doubt I will be going to Albertsons as often as I have been. This may also effect the newspaper business - why get multiple papers if you will be using the high value coupons at face value? What is your thought on this new program?
Today's Idaho Statesman has a new $10 off $20 coupon stuck to the front top of the paper. Coupon is good 8/19 thru Sat 8/28. Can be used in conjunction with this 15% off coupon. The 15% will be applied to the balance AFTER the $10 comes off.
The cashiers will only take 1 coupon per person. Please plan on making multiple visits to the store.
Just got an email with a link to a new $1 Del Monte Fruit Chillers Cups or Tubes bricks coupon. Go here to print it (twice using your back button). This excited me, personally, because I managed to snag rain checks for this item last time it was on sale and we had doublers. Turns out, my hubby likes the cups, so this will be a great summer time treat at my house! With rumors of doublers coming Sunday, I'm excited!

Today's issue of the Idaho Statesman has a coupon "Take $10 off any purchase of $20 or more". It's good 4/29 (tomorrow) thru 5/9. Remember, you can use your 15% coupon with it - the percent will come off the balance after the $ off coupon.
As always, "Only one $10 coupon can be redeemed per customer". So, please don't make back to back purchases and expect to use multiple coupons. My cashiers are only allowed to take 1 per customer and I can't approve it either, because then I get in trouble. If you have multiple coupons, make multiple visits - coupon is good for 10 days!
Wednesday, 4/28/10 is 31c scoop night at Baskin-Robbins. Between 5pm-10pm, all 2.5 oz scoops will be 31c (plus tax) at participating locations (limit 3 scoops per person). This promotion is in honor of America's firefighters and Baskin-Robbins will be making a $100,000 donation to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. You may also have a chance to make a donation to local fire charities.
You can text SCOOP to 31310 for a text message reminder on 4/28 about this promotion.
So, why did I create yet ANOTHER coupon blog? Well, I wanted to showcase four things I couldn't find anywhere else.
1. I want to create a site that talks about the unadvertised bargains! We have some really great sites handling matching up the advertised sales with our coupons, but nothing out there just dedicated to the sales we should gossip about.
2. After running this blog for about a month, I think there is a need for a open forum discussion board to get ideas passed quickly among couponers. This idea is the brainchild of Jennifer H. (who is a voice of sanity for me). So, here is a new goal for this blog! Let's rock the Discussion Board!
3. When I started couponing, I was frustrated and NOT SURE if the item on sale was a good price or not! We all the stores jockey their prices often so it's hard to keep track. Well, I've created a spreadsheet that will help with this problem. [ COMING SOON! ]
4. Lastly, I can't find a good coupon site that talks about how to save money feeding our four-legged family members. I want to put together a place where we can all share how to save money when feeding our pets!
So, now you know the why. I hope you enjoy this site. Please feel free to contact me whenever you have (PSSSSST!) something to talk about!
