Groceries are one of the biggest monthly expenditures for everyone. That’s why bargain hunters are always on the lookout for any way to save money at the checkout lane, whether it’s from weekly sales, coupons or promos. And we’re making it more convenient and easier by offering a “one-stop shop” round-up of the best weekly deals at popular grocery stores in Denver.
Before you go grocery shopping, note the following bargain hunter tips:
Loyalty Clubs — Most (if not, all) sales and deals require customers to be a member of the store’s loyalty club. You can sign-up online or at the customer service counter.
Sale Limits — Many sales have a limit to the number of items you can purchase at the discounted price. Be sure to review and adhere to any stated limits. If you purchase more, expect to full price for the additional items.
Use Coupons — When possible, use manufacturer or store coupons for maximum savings. At most stores, coupons can be stacked on top of sale prices. However, be aware of each store’s coupon policy, as many have limits and restrictions.
Check Clearance — Always shop your grocery store’s clearance items. Most stores have a section solely devoted to marked down items or manager’s specials. Find it at your store and check it every time you shop. You can often find items marked at 75% off or more. The items change often, based on expiration dates, damaged packaging and discontinued items.
Get a Receipt — Always get a receipt. If you have a problem with a product or experience a price discrepancy, you will need a receipt for an easier resolution. Bargain hunters always review their receipt to ensure they have properly received the correct sale prices or discounts.
Rain Checks — If a sale item is out of stock, ask for a rain check. Rain check policies vary by store. In addition, many stores do not offer rain checks on digital deals, so it’s wise to shop early.
The following sale prices are valid November 30 to December 6.
