Albertsons has made it official regarding the change to Twice the Value coupons being at customer service counters. Here’s what they have released in an e-mail:
As I’m sure you’ve seen on our Facebook page, we’re currently reevaluating the way we share coupons with our shoppers. We’re really excited that so many shoppers are enthusiastic about our Twice the Value coupons at certain Albertsons IMW locations, and we’ve seen a significant increase in shoppers who are using them.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen many people taking advantage of this special offer, so we’ve decided to stop providing extra inserts at our store locations. As of July 17th, the only way to have access to the promotional inserts that include our Twice the Value coupons will be to purchase a Sunday newspaper. I want to make it clear that we’re still offering and honoring our Twice the Value coupons, but to limit the number of shoppers who are using more than three in any given shopping trip we will not have extra coupons at our store locations.
Our stores in Montana and Wyoming have a historically low redemption rate of our special Twice the Value coupons, so in these specific markets we’ve decided discontinue offering our special savings inserts in Sunday newspapers as well. Since shoppers in these stores don’t appear to be finding value in these coupons, we’ve decided to use this as an opportunity to try new ways to share savings and value with our customers.
Thanks, Frugal Living NW
Start asking your parents, friends & neighbors for their inserts if they don't use them.
Another bummer couponing change (like Rite Aid's BOGO coupon change), BUT we'll get over it and it won't be a big deal.
