July 2, 2013

Top 5 tips for getting started shopping at grocery stores:

1) Get a store card – To get the sale prices at grocery stores, you need a store card. You can get them at customer service. During checkout hand the card to the cashier to get the sale price.

2) Go to their website, most grocery stores have a website. When you go to their website you can see the ads, and plan your shopping trip. Many online grocery ad’s even offer a feature of creating a shopping list. Be sure to sign up for emails, they can send you coupons that way.

3) See if they offer digital coupons that you can load to your card. Many large grocery chains offer digital coupons. Please keep in mind that you cannot use paper coupons along with digital coupons. You have to use one or the other. These digital coupons will only apply to one item. A big advantage to these is that they are loaded to your card so you wont forget them. 

4) Look for coupon booklets in the store, you can find them at customer service.

5) “Like” your grocery store on Facebook, sometimes they offer coupons on their Facebook page.
