Grocery Store Websites: A Great Place to Kick Off Your Weekly Grocery Savings
Grocery Store Websites are a great place to initiate your grocery savings each week. There are many areas of a typical grocery website and most of them are designed to save you money.
Digital coupons are those you will never have to clip or print. You download them from your grocery store website to your grocery store membership card and they are instantly applied to your total when you scan your membership card at checkout.
Now I know I’m not a coupon guy, but this is one way to save a little extra. I’ve gone through these digital coupons are still don’t waste a lot of time on them because I just don’t find coupons on the types of items I buy. However, if you cook from scratch like I do, you can still save money with coupons. Check out my page on grocery coupons for my ideas on how to use them.
Grocery Store Ads
Your grocery store ads will also be included on your grocery store website. We’ve all see the sales flyers in a basket at the front of the store. The idea is you pick it up on the way through the door, see all the wonderful items they have on sale and “save some money” by taking advantage of the great savings. However, this is not a good way to save money because you end up buying stuff just because there is a savings. If you don’t use those items and they end up going bad in the fridge or pantry, then you’ve wasted money, not saved it.
However, if you go to your grocery store website, you will find an online copy of that same grocery store ad which you can use to pre plan your savings.
Grocery Store Memberships
Grocery store memberships are becoming more and more popular. The basic idea is you have a discount card which you swipe at the register and you receive discounts you can only get through the card.
There may be other benefits to the membership card such as gasoline discounts or pharmacy discounts. The cards are free and are an extra benefit of shopping at that particular grocery store.
What does this have to do with websites? Good questions. Some grocery stores combine the power of the membership card with the power of the internet. Your store’s website may allow you to log in and download extra savings onto your card – kinda of like digital coupons. Below steps to using this function, if your store offers it.
• Look at your grocery store ad (online or offline)
• Make a menu for the week based on the savings you see
• Make your grocery list
• Go back to the website and peruse their digital coupons to see what extra savings you can attain
• Download those coupons to your grocery store membership card
