Newbie here! So this was my first attempt at couponing. The first Albertsons I went to the cashier didn’t know what he was doing and did not enter the amount when prompted so he tries to tell me the coupons can’t be used because the razors are already bogo on sale. So me being new I told him ok, and was thinking ya I knew this was too good to be true. Got in the car and thought to myself, I’ll try a different Albertsons. GOT 8 PACKS OF RAZORS FOR FREE!!!!! Lol! Thank you Jennifer Freeman!!!!!!

Way to go!! Some cashiers do not understand coupon rules. I am SO glad you went to a different store! Take couponing one step at a time and in a few months you will totally have the hang of it!

Just go slow and do one deal at a time! Come on back here and share your amazing finds!

I tried this at 1 Albertson’s and the store director refused to do it. I was so upset and embarrassed. He said “why you a BOGO coupon when it’s already on a BOGO deal?” I didnt how to reply so i just said “ok”.

Ah LisaLisa – So sorry that it didn’t go well. But please don’t be embarrassed. It is frustrating when a store doesn’t understand. The BOGO is a store sale, and the BOGO coupon gives the store a reimbursement from the manufacturer. CVS actually has written into their coupon policy that they accept a BOGO manufacturer coupon with a BOGO sale and both items will be free.

My Albertsons just scanned the coupon and it prompted the price input and that was it.

No OOP for the razors, but I paid tax and that was $2 something. BUT to get the catalina, you have to have some other item in your shop for it to prompt. So buy something else that you need. I bought the $.99 per pound grapes.

Thanks for replying Jen! So I went to 2 more Albertson’s and both were out, so I got a raincheck for it. Thanks again for always posting your deals. Have a good one :)

ok so i got the raincheck for my (20) free razors and i’m excited because i just printed out their policy, that way i’m prepared if they try to give me problems. I understand I need to have an additional item in order to get the $5 back so because I have 10 coupons, I plan to do this transaction 3 times to get (3) $5 back.

I would stick to the transaction of buying 8 razors and using 4 coupons, plus one other item so your total will not be zero. Every person who buys less than 8 razors is NOT getting the catalina. But no matter if you don’t get the catalina the razors are totally free!!

Let me know how it goes for you!

Im gonna call the store tomorrow to see if they can tell me why I didnt get the $5.

For some reason there are a few people who are not getting the $5 catalina, I don’t know why. The only thing I am sure of is you need to buy 8 (EIGHT) razors and have one other thing you are paying for (the total can’t be zero).

The store has no control over the $5 catalina. Call Catalina marketing at 1-888-8COUPON (1-888-826-8766. Option 3 is for consumers). Have your receipt in hand because they need some information from it.

Be sure to let me know how it goes with catalina! Jen

Hi — The transaction had to have 8 razors purchased to trigger the catalina. But no matter what it is still an amazing deal because all 6 packages you “bought” were totally free!!

Is this regional specials?

Reply

It may be, some areas have it some do not. But even without the buy one get one free sale, the coupon makes the razors 1/2 price – which is great! And the P&G catalina should be national and print if you spend over $20 on razors.

Now did you say that we have to buy another item in order to get $5 back? I have 10 BOGO coupons. If it allows me to get $5 when spending $20 or more, will I we able to do this transactions 3 at a time to get (3) $5′s back? I hope I didnt confuse you

i just did 1 set of the 2 packages. i didnt have any more than the 1 coupon, it said upto 8.49( i think,)so i just paid the extra .70 and the tax.she tried to tell me i couldnt, but i said thats not what your coupon policy on the website says. she asked the manager and then let me do it.
no catlina since i didnt spend enough. but im getting more coupons, and then ill be stocked for a year. 2 of my kids just started shaving :/ and so it begins.. i also scored a pricematch at walmart on shavegel a couple weeks ago -at walgreens was $1(after rr), and with the .55coupons i stocked that. got my free/ .25 nivea at cvs today. glad i subscribed on fb, i did not catch this one when i was checking out my ads.
