Do you need a special form to submit your rebate for Unilever? Or do they give you a rebate form when you check out?
Thanks!

Default Ehics

So, what do you do if you want to buy $25 worth of products that are part of this deal, but aren't planning on or needing meat? I don't want to buy any meat, but I have coupons to use on quite a few products that will certainly put me over the $25. Since the $10 comes off automatically without buying meat, and I don't want to buy meat, how do you get around that? They should do it like the milk deal where you get a catalina for $10 in meat to be used OYNSO. I think that would help with the glitches out there.

Buy one get one free
Minus two $1 coupons and two doublers
The mascara ended up at $2 ea. They gave me no hassle whatsever.
I bought 6 mascaras doing that.
This was with coupons that were bogo free and not with a bogo free sale, cause that makes more sense to use 2 coupons that way. I was already using 2 coupons.

Anyway..... Would someone mind posting Milk prices at Albertson's after you do your shop??? (for the Jello coupon)

(I like to write a list of everything I'm doing before I go... so I can easily tell if the total at the cash register is correct....)

TIA!!!
If you get the catalina for the free milk with the Kellogg's cereals, you can count that as your milk "purchase" to be used with the jello pudding coupon. I did that last week, and it worked like a charm.

I'm not professing to know the "right" thing to do in this situation but I say free is free. Just think of it as free meat. Give it away if you don't need it. Or tell them to put the $10 back on. (This requires some guts and character) You have to think about the fact that if you aren't getting $10 off your order, is the sale really worth it to you? If it's only worth it with a dishonest discount, maybe you should rethink your shopping trip. The deal is free meat, not free money. Maybe something that would help this would be to figure out the shopping lists with the products at full price and the meat as free. I know it sounds better the other way but it promotes a bit of confusion with sales like this.

Oh and if you want to be honest and still get the discount just do the Unilever rebate. I bought a $20 ham and $50 worth of products for $14.

I'm kind of sad that we are all so hung up on getting a good deal that we are stepping on the people giving it to us. The deal is specifically set up to help certain departments of Albertson's. We are all a little disappointed with how some coupon rules are changing right now but it's because of things like this that they are changing. Let's help each other out and stick to the rules. I hope this doesn't sound rude. I'm just concerned.
I agree with you 1,000%! PLEASE play by the rules and shop with integrity. It makes me VERY sad that people are choosing to try to cheat a great system. It makes me VERY, VERY sad that said people are taking it a step further and bragging/teaching about it.

I agree again. Especially when you know about the situation ahead of time from a blog or this discussion. (If it happened and you didn't know or weren't planning on it - that is an honest mistake.) Knowing about it before hand gives the power to choose to shop honestly.

On a side note - I can't imagine being so well-stocked or wealthy that I couldn't use free meat! (I guess a vegetarian wouldn't need it.) I like the idea of giving the meat to someone else if you really can't use it. Good thinking!

I think your interpretation is correct. However, I also noticed that in the ad, it shows the 10% off coupons and it said something to the effect of..."10% off your purchase of $50 or more." So, be aware that if you're like me and don't often have a total of $50 in any ONE transaction at Albertson's, you might not get to use it before it expires.
