Weekly Flyer Review – Groceries

For this week, the sales at Sobeys, Metro and Loblaws suck! Can I say that? Too late I guess because it’s been said. Sadly, it is also true. Don’t you hate how some places raise prices right before a long weekend? Like gas? Bastards!

Anyway, you don’t care that Loblaws does not have great sales because you have gotten your PC Plus point card AND you have downloaded Flipp to your phones so that you can get the sales at other stores at Loblaws! Right?

Let me offer some advice on how to make doing that easier. First, read my blog or the flyers and make a list. Make sure to write down what store has the best price on that item. Second, gather your flyers – if you do not have a smart phone – and off to Loblaws you go. Shop the items on your list. Third, before you check-out you’re going to want to organize your cart. The cashier and the people behind you in line will thank you! Put all the items on sale at say, FreshCo together so when you get to them at the cash, you can easily open Flipp to that Flyer  – or the actual flyer – and show the cashier. Do that for everything that you’ve found for a better price elsewhere. Easy peasy!

Your next stop is Walmart and/or Amazon. Because you’ve joined Ebates right? Because you want to earn money every time you shop online, I know that you have! I will provide the link for Ebates for all of my newcomers. If you’re in the States or overseas, follow the link and Ebates will guide you to the proper site.
