Does Albertsons Fill Helium Balloons?

Whether you’re throwing a party, gifting a basket, or just looking for fun with helium balloons, you might be stumped on how to purchase them. Some stores sell balloons that are already blown up while other stores fill up balloons for you. 


After speaking with a customer service representative at Albertsons, I’ve found out nearly all you need to know about filling helium balloons. 



Does Albertsons blow up helium balloons? Yes, Albertsons does inflate balloons with helium at their in store locations for their customers. All Albertsons locations should have a balloon filling area located near the floral or events department.


How Much Does Albertsons Charge To Blow Up Balloons?

Albertsons charges anywhere from $1.50 to $7.00 per balloon. The cost of filling up the balloon is directly related to the size of the balloon.


The cheapest option is to have them fill up 12 inch latex balloons for $1.50 per balloon. They go up in price related to size, costing as much as $7 for 16 inch latex balloons. Foil balloons are more expensive to fill, starting at around $4. 



Will Albertsons Fill Up Balloons That Aren’t Purchased In The Store?


Yes, you can bring in balloons purchased elsewhere. In other words, you can purchase balloons from a different store, other than Albertsons, and then bring them in to be filled.


It can be quite a bit cheaper to purchase a bulk supply of balloons online to be filled. One advantage of this is that you can bring in your own custom balloons to be filled, as Albertsons may not have the ones that you want.



How Much Are Balloons at Albertsons?


The actual price of balloons range from $1 to $10. This price is separate from the cost of inflating the balloons themselves. 


The price varies depending on whether you bring in your own balloons, what material they are, the season, and the location of the Albertsons stores. Using your own balloons, you can expect to pay between $1.50 and $7 per balloon.


Does Albertsons Sell Pre-Inflated Balloons?


Yes. Albertsons offers ready-to-go balloon packs. Some of them are attached to a flower bouquet. Some are themed to occasions like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc. 


These pre-inflated balloons generally cost between $15 and $40 per pack and Albertsons delivers them for no additional fee. Though these options are likely more expensive than having them fill up balloons purchased elsewhere, the convenience and artistic touch may be worth it. 


If you’re looking for a small arrangement to give to someone, I recommend buying one of their pre-inflated balloon packs. If you’re designing an arrangement for a large occasion, like a wedding or anniversary party, I recommend buying a bulk supply of latex balloons and bringing them into Albertsons for them to fill up.
