A lot of people have asked me how can I have a blog about groceries in Rochester, NY and so far have no mention of the beloved hometown grocery chain Wegmans. The reason is they don’t make it easy for you to find a deal. The have plenty of deals, they just make you come to their store to find them. Wegmans weekly flier in the Sunday paper has just random everyday priced items in it. Not their big sales of the week. The other reason is that Wegmans is the king of the few cents off sale. There are tons of mini-sales. They want you to see that yellow tag hanging in front of the item and buy it impulsively. Sometimes the savings can be as low as 5 cents. Why can’t they be like every other grocery store in the world and just give me a list of what’s on sale this week and do away with the ‘fake’ sales?
But I’ve finally found a solution to this dilemma thanks to Wegmans’ AMAZING website. Using the search function on Wegmans.com it is now possible to determine all of the week’s sale items. Maybe this is why they don’t put them in the weekly ad. Wegmans would have to put out a weekly pamphlet or magazine. I found 2,330 sales at my local store this week, 131 in the beer section alone. Here’s how you do it:
- Go to Wegmans.com
- Click on ‘Stores’ in the toolbar and select your local store in the list.
- Then click on ‘Shopping Lists’
- Click on any department. It doesn’t matter. I always choose Deli.
- Once you have clicked on a department, you will see a box at the top of the list that says “Show only shoppers club savings” Click that box. Currently this will only show the shoppers club savings of whatever department you clicked on.
- Look to the left hand side of the page you will see a box under Products that says “Your have selected:” and the department you selected shown below. You will need to click on the little grey X next to it that says ‘remove’. The page will update and then you should be able to see all the products on sale throughout the entire store.
- To see when the sale is good through click on the individual item. You’ll see a page like this example below:
