Written in partnership with Albertsons Companies. I wondered how my husband seemed to know when items we normally buy were priced less than advertised. Then, I figured out that our household Albertsons account is tied to our home phone line and his email address. So, he’d been the one to figure out how to log in, check weekly specials, and add products with special just for U savings to our virtual shopping list.
With just for U, shoppers can find over $300 in weekly savings on groceries through digital coupons and personalized offers (based on past purchases) on top of great in-store prices and deals. The available digital coupons also include manufacturer coupons, too.
It used to be that securing extra savings through just for U was done manually through the Albertsons website. Now, securing these savings is even easier with the easy-to-use just for U mobile savings tool which I accessed through my Albertsons app.
For us, there are three ways to take advantage of the app:
- The first is by adding products with just for U offers that we normally buy to the virtual shopping list in advance of a grocery store run.
- The second is by finding and adding products to the virtual shopping list while in-store because we forgot about an item that we needed to buy.
- The third is by scrolling through the items that are recommended to us based on past purchasing habits.
We recently used the app in during our recent visit to Albertsons in the East Village (a really nice San Diego grocery store, I might add).
My daughter’s favorite lemonade was already on sale in store but we saved an extra 25 cents per bottle with via just for U. This had already been added to our virtual shopping list by my husband in advance.
The ability to identify and add items to your account while physically in the store is the number one reason why having the Albertsons app with the just for U savings tool on your phone is so convenient. We needed flowers, so I happened to type in “flowers” and saw that sunflowers were on special for $4.99 a bundle in the app.
When scrolling through the recommended items, I saw an offer for mini watermelons, an item that my daughter and her friends seem to devour during summer. So, we picked up a few of these, too, at an extra $1 off each.
And, even in the grocery store, we always seem to stumble upon unexpected must-have items.
As someone who is always in a rush at the grocery store, I didn’t find that using the app added on significantly extra time. What it does add is significant savings if you use it.
All you need to do at the register is enter your Albertsons account phone number into the keypad and the savings are automatically deducted. It’s so easy.
Or, if you’re a desktop user and not signed in you can go to this Albertsons landing page.
