It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time once again for my favorite deals at the grocery stores this week! These days our time at the grocery store seems even more important than ever…it’s one place we go every week and we want to get in and out as quickly as possible. Prices are good through April 7th.
TODAY (April 1st) is senior discount day at Albertsons, Bashas’, Fry’s, and Safeway. Everyone 55 or better gets 10% off.
If you’re out of work, the grocery stores are definitely hiring right now.
Be sure to print off all of the new April coupons.com coupons before they’re gone. Current (as I’m typing this) coupons include: $1 off Mars Wrigley Easter items, $8 off Claritin, $2 off Finish dishwashing tabs, $5 off two boxes of Clairol hair color (is anyone doing this?!), and lots more!
I am a fan of the Ibotta app, head over here to load it to your phone. You’ll get money back for buying all kinds of things probably already on your list at Fry’s, Safeway, Albertsons, Target, Walmart, Sprouts, Costco, Bashas’, Walgreens, CVS, Sam’s Club, Whole Foods, Food City, Dollar Tree, Total Wine, and other places you’re probably already shopping. When you find items you’re getting, you upload your receipt and scan barcodes of the items and you can add the cash back directly to your Paypal account ($20+). Some of my favorite cash back offers this week are $2 back when you buy Oroweat Simply Small bread, $3 back when you buy Flintstones vitamins, $1.50 back when you buy a bottle of Josh Cellars wine, $.25 back when you buy Dreyer’s ice cream, $.25 back on Nabisco crackers, $5 back on Muscle Milk powders, $2 back on L’Oreal hair color, and LOTS MORE! The savings can add up FAST (and I think it makes shopping a little bit more fun).
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to be better at grocery store couponing to the extreme, my friend Juli at Bargain Believer is an expert! She wrote me yesterday and let me know that she’s offering her online course for free for 30 days to anyone who would like to learn (she usually charges $20). Head over here to get signed up. She also offers a Beyond Membership for $7/month that includes really easy coupon matchups (she and her sidekick Gina spend hours and hours on this), but you definitely do not need to sign up in order to take the course
