That was AWESOME! The other day we were at Albertson's and did not have our rewards card because we really don't shop there since we no longer live close. We tried a couple of old phone numbers and couldn't get the discount. The clerk entered her own number for us, then my husband had her try 509-867-3509. Yeah, he ususally gives that number to stores when they ask for your number! Not many young store clerks get it, but it's funny when we get one that does! If anyone needs a discount at Albertson's, feel free to use Jenny's number!

Love this! I definitely checked the majority of these.
