Saving Money on Groceries at Meijer Without Clipping Coupons
I have mentioned time and again on this blog that I am on a tight budget when it comes to grocery shopping. I am always looking to save as much as I can when it comes to groceries. While I still clip coupons I don't use many of them because they are for foods we don't eat. The majority of the coupons I use are for laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, household items, and health care. One of my favorite stores to shop at is Meijer. Meijer offers a mPerks program that you can use in addition to coupons, or you can use if you don't use coupons.
In the last month I have saved $56.34 by using mPerks. My weekly food budget is $125 so this is nearly half of one weeks grocery budget for my family.
You can sign up for mPerks by visiting Meijer's website. Once you sign up for this free program you simply go online to chose from Rewards and coupons that you digitally clip. To use these coupons and rewards at the store, you enter your phone number and pin on the credit card pad at checkout.
When you sign in to mPerks you can choose from Rewards or Coupons. My favorite part of the program is the Rewards part. When you choose the Rewards tab you can choose Rewards that you want to start earning. These are both generalized rewards and specialized rewards. You have four weeks to earn these rewards. The Reward that I use each month is $6 off your shopping trip when you spend $175. The $175 does not have to be spent in one trip, it can be tallied up over multiple trips. Specialized rewards that I am earning this month include $5 off your shopping trip when you spend $30 on fresh vegetables in the produce department, $5 off your shopping trip when you spend $30 on Cleaning and Laundry Products, and $5 off your shopping trip when you spend $40 or more in Garden and Floral.
When you chose the Coupons tab you can digitally clip coupons. Some of the coupons are similar to those you would find in the Sunday coupons, while others may be a percentage or dollar amount off a certain department purchase. One coupon currently offered on mPerks is 10% off your General Merchandise purchase.
Another nice feature of mPerks is that it digitally stores your receipts for you and that you can create your own shopping list with it.
