Summer is upon us and the cost of feeding those hungry active kids can be overwhelming. Well here is an easy way to save money on the go without clipping coupons. Who has time for that! lol
Let me introduce you to the flipp app. It is so very easy to use! It gives you all the sale ads for what ever zip code you put in.
Download the app from your play store. Once you are have it on your phone, put a zip code for a fairly populated area. I live in the fort worth area, so I use 76109.
Then just cruise the ads and tap the ones you like, the app will circle the item & place it on your shopping list for easy access in the store. Or, if you know of a certain item, search for that item specifically like Pepsi. The app will find all sales in the area for the zip code you have set.
A few things you need to know:
Items MUST be EXACT brand & size/quantity per package as listed in the ad when price matching.
For store brand items, like milk or eggs, Walmart will pricematch their store brand item for same size/quantity.
For produce, it cannot be a certain brand unless you are buying the same brand. Like oranges, if you buy the cutie brand has to be same size/quantity as the ad. But for loose produce without a brand name, just bag up how ever many pounds you need and they will price match the unbranded, loose produce, per pound item that you choose. I did tomatoes earlier.
For meats, its a little different. Make sure meat does not have a specific product name on it like Johnson, or Oscar Mayer. For hamburger, it has to be the same level like 80/20, Angus, or like butt roast etc., and must have the per pound dollar amount in ad. Like if its hamburger meat in the ad without the per pound amount listed and all it says is “family pack”, Walmart will not price match that.
Things you cannot price match:
Buy this get that
Buy this get this for a penny.
Items MUST have a specific price listed. But you can do this: $1.99 each when you buy 3, so in this instance you would buy three of the listed item @ $1.99 for each item. I did that with Dr. Pepper 12 packs the other day. Amazing deal.
Once your at the register, let the cashier know you are price matching. I like to line the items up at the register in the order they are listed in the app so the process will be smoother.
Here is the price matching I did at Walmart earlier. Its not much, but I am on a budget.
2-liter Pepsi – price matched to CVS @ .99
18 count eggs, price matched to Fiesta @ .87
Roma Tomatoes, price matched to Savers Cost Plus @ 2 lbs for .99
5 lb bag of potatoes, price matched to Supermercado Teloapan @ .99 for the whole bag!!!
I also purchased some Brat sausages and pork chops, but could not price match them because I just couldn’t get them to match up. I only paid 12.19 by price matching, no coupons needed, I cut my grocery bill more than half!!!
But you can easily see how much you can save on grocery cost without clipping coupons or driving all over town to catch the good deals. There are a ton of snack and drink items for the kiddos on sale right now. Just look, you will be amazed at how much you can get for pennies on the dollar!!
I truly hope my tips and tricks help you guys. Let me know! Any questions, no problem, I am happy to help! Saving money makes me happy!!
Happy Savings Everyone!
