If using coupons are too much for you or you just can’t seem to find the time to clip and organize them, there are other ways to save on your grocery bills besides using coupons; comparing store ads. This process doesn’t take long and it can be done on a weekly basis. By comparing store ads, you can save money.
In my area, the sales ads from the grocery stores are delivered to my mail box on Tuesday for a Wednesday sale start. Just by comparing prices at each store, you can decide where you will save the most money. Last week , My favorite store, Store A had Rice on sale for 2/$5=$2.50. However, Store B had the same rice on sale for just $1. That’s a savings of $1.50 just by comparing prices.
Most of my stores that I shop at are all in one area. I understand that some of your stores may not. You may also consider price matching your store sales ad at Walmart or Target to maximize your savings-This is what I do. If only one or two items are cheaper at Store B than it might make sense to just grab all of your items from your favorite store, Store A because you run the risk of the sale item being out of stock at Store B and gas also plays a factor.
So before you shop at your normal store, it will never hurt to check out the competitions prices to make sure you are getting the best price.
Having a copy of the stores coupon policy readily available can help improve your coupon shopping experience. Have you ever had a cashier tell you they could not accept a coupon because it would make the item FREE? or have been told by the store manager that you couldn’t use coupons on clearance items and you knew that you could? It would help to have a copy of the store’s coupon policy available in these type of instances.
- Often time a store changes their policy and may not have notified all cashiers/managers of the change
- You may be dealing with a new cashier who have not been properly trained on the acceptance of coupons or the store policy.
Having the coupon policy available could help diffuse a situation should you find yourself in a disagreement with a cashier and/or store manager of their acceptance of coupons.
Please also note that some store managers have the right to refuse to accept any coupons-regardless of the corporate policy. So you may be placed in a situation where you have the coupon policy available and they still chose not to accept them. My solution to this is to get to know your cashiers and managers at the stores you shop and use coupons. I am familiar with all the cashiers at my local CVS (I know them all by name and even gave them Christmas Presents) and I have a few cashiers at Walmart that we look forward to seeing each week. This helps our shopping trips go smoother, especially since we are using coupons.
A store’s coupon policy is available to the public. You can visit your store’s website to grab your copy. I have included a few coupon policy for your reference.

- CVS Coupon Policy
- Rite-Aid Coupon Policy
- Walgreens Coupon Policy
