Grocery Geek Presents: FREE Product Coupons Rock!
Posted By Jessica Fisher On February 20, 2010 @ 1:53 am In Budget Living,Grocery Geek | 13 Comments
Thanks to the sponsors of Savvy Blogging  and Blissdom , I had a huge stack of free product coupons in my coupon bag.  You don’t have to go to a blogging conference to get these coupons. Manufacturers are increasingly offering these as free samples and giveaways or as incentives for consumers to follow them on facebook. Keep your eyes open and you should see quite a few offered at any given time. MoneySavingMom  can often give you the head’s up.
Normally I try to save these for sales and work them into better deals. For instance:
Last week Ralphs had Hebrew National hot dogs “buy one get one free.” I used a free product coupon and got both packages of quality, kosher hot dogs for free!
But, seeing as my cupboards are practically bare, I decided NOT to wait for sales and catalina situations and just redeem the whole stack at once. Friday night I told FishPapa, “I’m not sure they’re gonna like me at the store.” I went early on Saturday morning in the hopes that lines would be sparse.
As it was, the checkstands were deserted when it was time to check out, and I apologized profusely to the checker at the start of the order. With free product coupons, the checker usually needs to write the price of the item on the coupon itself, so it helps to have those sorted on the conveyor belt. “We” scanned the regular items first and then went item-by-item through the products I had free coupons for. Of course a line started to form during this process. But, in the end I purchased $103 worth of groceries for a mere $22.16. Yes, many of these items are “convenience” items, but I’ve been swamped lately and I need a little convenience in my life — especially if it’s free!
Did you score any great deals this week? Be sure to report them over at Super Savings Saturday .
