Albs Price Recon -- 6/17 to 6/23

Well, I didn't do last week's last promo where you buy $25.00 and get a $10.00 catalina. I just didn't need any of that stuff, and I didn't have enough matching coupons to make it worthwhile. I've been trying to do my couponing with two papers & IP coupons. Well, yesterday I finally pulled the trigger, bit the bullet, and joined the club...I now get four Sunday papers (Tribune) and one ID Statesman (my husband's paper but MY coupon inserts,, insert smile here).

Moving on... I believe this week's promo for the $25.00 and get a $10.00 catalina is better and worth talking about. However, I've always just thought -- HOW DO I KNOW I'M GETTING A GOOD DEAL? So, yesterday and today I went to Walmart and Winco to do a price recon. (GI Jane has nothing on me! Well, except maybe all those muscles.)

I look at it this way: If the price is close to the other stores, then it's a good deal. The Albs price doesn't have to beat it every time. I'm going to earn $ towards my gas discount, and I'm going to get the $10.00 catalina. You guys may have a different take on it, but this plan works for me.

Here are my findings for Nampa, ID. Good hunting!
