How to pay $105 for $130 worth of groceries at Albertsons



Today is the last day of the Gift card promotion at Albertsons. I will say that I’m sort of sad.. because this year they included the Mastercard Gift Card and the Amazon gift card which are a great deal in my eyes!

I just wanted to give you this quick tip– maybe you will benefit from it. However, today is the last day to do the gift card promotion–so you will need to head out TODAY and buy your gift card. The rest can be done anytime this week and next.


Next week, we will see a $10 off $100 AND a $5 off $50  Total purchase coupon in the Albertsons ad. This coupon is good AFTER your manufacturer coupon (according to the fine print)

SO- if you can find the $100 Mastercard Gift card (which is JUST like cash!) you can do the following:

Buy $100 Mastercard Gift Card + $5.95 fee
Pay: $105.95, Get Back $20 coupon good on your next grocery purchase

THEN, go back when you get your grocery ad for next week:

Buy $130 worth of groceries
Use $20 coupon from your Mastercard gift card purchase
Use $10 coupon from Albertsons Ad
Pay: $100!

If you want to use coupons– your total would need to be $120 AFTER all manufacturer coupons then you can use the $20 coupon and the $10 coupon after that.

    Is the Mastercard gift card considered a “Gift Card”? Because the coupon says calculated AFTER gift cards. Thanks! or does that mean after an “Albertson’s gift card”?

    I purchased a few of these deals myself. Unfortunately I haven’t been shopping at Albertsons a lot lately because their prices are much higher on the items I normally purchase. When I’m paying two or three times as much for items the 20 voucher savings goes out the window. IMO.

    or does that mean AFTER you pruchase a gift card? LOL I’m confussed. Just want to be clear incase I get the EVIL EYE from a cashier. LOL
