My Vons Shopping Trip – Spent $17, Saved 75%!

by Jess on June 10, 2011

Vons Extreme Couponing TripYesterday I ran into Vons to pick up a few things and thought I’d share my haul with ya guys! I need to remember to share these more but I always forget to snap a picture before putting everything away.

Anyway, I did this trip in two separate transactions because Vons will only double one “like/identical” coupon per transaction. This trip was almost a hot mess because the cashier insisted a new memo came out (love when they say that) that stated they no longer accept printable coupons and that people have been copying coupons blah blah blah. I assured her that I had not copied them, and that in fact each printable coupon has a unique serial id.

After much debating she finally accepted them this “one time” and I went on my merry way. Rule of thumb? Always keep a copy of the Vons Official Coupon Policy on hand when you shop. (Oh, and yes, they are still accepting printable coupons. In fact you can even print them from the Vons website.)

I have stopped trying to redeem printable coupons at Von’s because they won’t take them if they don’t scan. They claim it is the new policy. I do have kind of an old, awful printer and maybe when I get a new one the bar codes will print better and I’ll be able to use them again.
