If you’re a “weekly flipper” (someone who loves to flip through the weekly grocery ads, like we do!), you might be a little shocked this week. Many are nowhere to be found. Things are changing so quickly that many retailers are having trouble keeping up with demand and shifting inventory. If you didn’t know, most weekly ads are planned weeks (if not, months) in advance. As a result, making last-minute changes can be a difficult task.
Plus, not having to print weekly ads helps eliminate many human interactions along the printing and distribution process. Not to mention, it saves lots of money and paper!
Don’t fret. All of those weekly ads are available online. And the best source we’ve found is Flipp.
It’s one-stop shopping for all the ads from grocery stores and other retailers — just enter your zip code and all of the weekly ads in your area are right there! We typed in a Denver zip code and found more than 50 weekly ads.
Flipp is the same technology most retailers use on their own individual sites for weekly ads anyway, so you know it’s a reliable source.
And, if you prefer, Flipp also has an app. The app might be the best choice for convenience, especially as you run errands.
With Flipp, you can do the following:
Browse – Search through thousands of local weekly ads.
Search – Quickly find a specific store, item or brand.
Shopping List – Add items you need and the system will instantly find deals (if available) on those items for you.
Item Details – Tap an item for additional product information.
Many things will change, once all of this chaos settles. And one of the biggest changes may be the extinction of the printed weekly ad. It may a difficult transition for some, but there are definitely lots of benefits.
