Maybe I should rename my subject but we have two local competing grocery stores that offer gasoline discounts for grocery shopping. Whenever the new fliers come out I make out my grocery lists for what pays those extra bucks for gasoline and whip out the coupons and make out my weekly shopping trips accordingly. Those fuel reward programs help me not only save on food but on my gasoline bill as well.
For the week ahead we have grapes at one store for $1.79/lb while the other is priced at .88/lb. One store has sea scallops for $11.99/lb while the competitor is $7.99/lb. The cheaper of the two stores offer the most in the gasoline perks this week so I know where I'll be shopping.
When I shop this week I will be coming home with the crabs… only $5.99/lb.
Other than double coupon specials and shopper card discounts, what local discount programs do you get in your area when grocery shopping?
And … does anyone else remember S&H Green Stamps from yesteryear??? God I can still taste those horrible stamps and getting paper cuts in exchange for cheap merchandise.
