I found this email on another blog and I wanted to spread the word. Please Read!

"I recently emailed Albertsons asking them why it seems Albertsons in Southern California never puts out “Doublers” as they seem to do almost monthly in places like Idaho. I was bothered, because in this economy we ALL are suffering, and living in Southern California where the cost of living is pretty high, I would really LOVE to get in on some of the deals that A Thrifty Mom gets!!I’m sure YOU would too!!

I found out why Albertsons in So Cal doesn’t double… “no demand.”Huh??(I disagree with that statement)It has to do with the fact that, although Albertsons are all owned by the same company (save for Northern Ca.) each Division is run as if it were a separate company.

The only way to get Double Coupons in So Cal and Nev. would be for customers to CALL and/or
EMAIL/WRITE Corporate and demand (request may be a nicer word…)that they bring the Doublers to Southern California/Nevada(since we are definitely hurting from this economy slump…)The flip side would be if they WERE to print the Doublers, people would actually HAVE TO USE THEM!Or Albertsons in So Cal/Nevada will again stop printing them.

I was wondering if you would be willing to help me get the word out?If we can get enough people requesting them for the Southern California/Nevada Region Albertsons WILL LISTEN! I spoke with the woman in charge of the So Cal/Nev region personally, and this was her suggestion.

To get the word out to as many people as possible, and have them either write in, email in, or call in requesting Double Coupon Deals!! She also assured me that she would “look into” the matter, especially now that the economy has changed for the worse recently… Any help would be great!!
Here is their contact info:

Thanks, A Frugal Mommy! We will do our best to spread the word. We would love to receive "doublers" in Nevada!!!
