The Albertsons Tuna Deal

Albertsons has the Starkist cans and pouches of tuna for $1.25 each, and they are part of the "Epic Sales Event" that is going on now (buy 10 participating items and save $5.00 instantly) which then makes them .75 each. There are tearpad coupons for "$1.50 off 3 Pouches of Starkist Tuna" AND for every 5 pouches you buy, get a $1 Catalina. If you don't see the tearpad coupons, ask the cashiers if they have them, because a lot of the stores are keeping them at the registers. The best way to do the deal is to buy 30 POUCHES at a time, then you get six $1 Catalinas AND you can use 10 of the $1.50/3 coupons.

Here's how to do the Starkist Tuna Deal at Albertsons:
Get 30 Starkist Tuna Pouches (which is one case and 6 more pouches)
Get 10 $1.50 off of three Pouches" coupons
Pay. You will end up paying $7.50 (plus tax) for the first 30 pouches, and you will get $6 in catalina's back.
If you do the deal again, you will pay $1.50 (plus tax) for the 30 pouches, and will have another $6 in catalinas to either do the tuna deal again, or use on anything else...

Here's the breakdown:

First Transaction:
$37.50.....30 Pouches of Starkist Tuna
-$15.00....."Epic Sales Event" instant $5 savings for every 10 participating items, and we bought 30 items)
-$15.00.....for 10 $1.50/3 coupons
$7.50.....TOTAL on First order, AND get $6 in Catalina coupons back

Second Transaction
$37.50.....30 pouches of Starkist Tuna
-$15.00....."Epic Sales Event" instant $5 savings for every 10 participating items
-$15.00.....for 10 $1.50/3 coupons
$ 7.50.....SubTotal
-$ 6.00.....Catalina Coupons (OYNO's) from first order
$ 1.50.....TOTAL OOP AND get another $6 in Catalina's back!

Use your $6 catalina to do the deal again or on anything else in the store (except alcohol or cigs).

This tuna deal will still be going on next week. The old, downtown Albertsons in Meridian, ID got in 3 huge pallets of tuna this morning.

You are lucky your store got so much in. We are completely wiped out in North Idaho and Liberty Lake Washington - hopefully they will have some in on Saturday.

My favorite Albies (Old Meridian on Cherry Lane by BigLots) is AWESOME! They order LOTS and LOTS for these sales. And they are GREAT about special taking special orders! Hope you get some in on Saturday!
