Screamin Coupons- All of Our Readers who Sign Up Through Us Get a $5 Sign Up Credit!


Wednesday, July 29, 2009 |
Emily and I have received tons of e-mails and phone calls from concerned she shops smart readers about all the coupon changes.
It is true that Albertsons is in the process of being sold to Associated Foods. 36 Albertsons were included in the 150 million dollar negotiation. There are a couple stores in Orem and in Jordan still looking for buyers. The stores in St. George were not included in the deal. You can read all the details here on KSL.

What does this mean for us?

It just means we won't be shopping at Albertsons in the near future. It is a sad loss, but not one we can't recover from. Grocery Smarts works at EVERY grocery store, so we will just have to start looking in other places for the good deals. We are still going to save 50-70% on our grocery bills. Albertson's was a favorite of ours, but definitely not the only grocery store.
There is also good news. Associated foods will begin to take IPS on August 1st! I think they are already trying to help us save money on groceries!
I have also heard from our concerned readers about the Red Plum inserts being pulled from the newspapers. It is true that if you are receiving any paper in the state of Utah, accept for the Daily Herald, your RP inserts will now be mailed to you rather than in your Sunday newspaper. Good news is you get them for FREE in the mail, however you can no longer receive multiple copies. For those of you receiving the Daily Herald you will continue to receive your inserts in the paper. The Daily Herald was contracted with RP to keep the inserts in the paper, so they are unable to break the contract, but I am guessing that when their contract is up that the coupons will be pulled from the Daily Herald as well.
It is bitter sweet. Yes, we will miss the RP inserts in the paper, but we will still be receiving them . To find out whether you will be receiving the inserts in your paper or in the mail go HERE. Also, did you know that more than 75% of our coupon usage comes from the Smart Source insert? If you have been couponing for a while that is not new news to you. Half of my RP insert coupons go unused.
Also, please remember in no way did Grocery Smarts or Emily and I have anything to do with these decisions. We wish we had a way to change the decisions made, but we do not. We are also in this change with you. When I first heard all the sad news my husband would tell you I moped around the house, but there is no reason to be upset. We are still going to save money, build our food storage and have fun shopping. Emily and I are still going to be finding HOT deals and telling you about them. There is no reason to be upset or concerned (well, at least for not too long) because we will make this work no matter what. We are going to notice some change and adjusting, but thank heavens we have a community that is always looking for she shops smart deals! We are so grateful to our readers and know that we can all make the best of these unexpected changes.
