Grocery Store Spotlight Series: {Meijer}

As a self-proclaimed bargain shopper, I like to save money in every aspect of my life.  My favorite thing to save money on is definitely groceries because it’s just so easy!  However, if you don’t put any effort into it, grocery shopping can be the easiest way to throw your money away.  One of my tips for saving on groceries is to not stay loyal to one store.  Shop around, research weekly ads, and put thought into what you need before heading to the store.  In this series, you’ll find the 7 reasons why I love my favorite stores.

Today is all about… Meijer!

1.  One Stop Shop

Meijer sells pretty much EVERYTHING.  This is both a blessing and a curse.  I mean, you could be thinking, How on earth will I save money at a grocery store where I can also buy shoes?  True.  But, just think of how much extra money you spend at each additional store you stop at.  One store means one place to be tempted with impulse buys.  Double the stores equals double the unnecessary purchases.

2.  Coupons

You can use both paper and digital coupons at Meijer.  And if you use a physical coupon for an item that you already have a digital coupon for, the card reader will ask you which one you’d rather use, so you can choose the better deal.  Meijer also frequently sends out fliers with coupons.  DO NOT THROW THESE AWAY.  It’s like throwing away money.  Seriously.  There’s almost always a code to add to your mPerks account for $5 or $10 off any purchase.  That’s a free pack of diapers, mama.

3.  Buy 10 Get the 11th Free Sale

I’m always stalking the weekly ads for this sale.  Meijer is unlike other stores that run 10 for 10 sales, where you can get each item for $1 regardless of the number of items you buy.  To get the 11th item for free, you have to buy all 10 items.  But it’s totally worth it!  There are always a lot of name brand items included in this sale that I like to use coupons on to get the groceries for only a few cents, and sometimes free!

4.  Clearance!

If I have the time, I hit up every clearance section I can find in Meijer.  A few examples of AMAZING clearance steals I’ve scored… A KidKraft Kitchen for $24.99 (originally over $100!) and I recently found Jackson a pair of Sketchers tennis shoes for only $12.00 (originally over $40!).  Always check the digital coupons when shopping clearance.  I’ve seen digital coupons for an extra percentage off clearance prices in different departments.

5.  Pharmacy Perks

Coupons for transferred or new prescriptions can usually be found in mailed fliers, newspaper ads, and even on the Meijer app.  I’ve made as much as $50 for transferring prescriptions.  And Meijer rewards you for every prescription you fill, not just the new ones.  Just make sure you enter your mPerks number every time you visit the pharmacy and frequently check the app to see which rewards you’ve earned.

6.  Rewards

Ahhh!  The rewards!  On the Meijer app, you can earn rewards by purchasing different items.  Once you earn them, you can “clip” the rewards and they will magically appear on your mPerks account.  To recap, you earn MONEY to spend on ANYTHING you want just by purchasing the items you were going to buy anyways.

7.  The App

The Meijer app is awesome and honestly one of the best retailer apps out there, in my opinion.  When you register for mPerks, you can download the app and have all of your coupons and rewards at your fingertips.  You can also pull up any past receipts, check the weekly ad, and even look up what aisle an item you’re looking for is located.  Another cool feature is that you can scan the barcode of any item to check if there is a digital coupon available.  I can usually be found quickly scanning the contents of my cart while in line.
