Food Towne Of North Chili ad week of 3/7 – 3/13
Big M is New York State’s largest group of independently owned grocery stores. They have the best deals on meats in the Rochester, NY area in my opinion. If you are fortunate to have one in your area I encourage you to check them out. They DO NOT take internet coupons, but DO take newspaper or manufacturer non-net coupons. Beginning today I will feature their sales here at ROC Coupons weekly.
Big M Deals 2/28-3/6
I hadn’t been to Tops in over 3 days so I was due for another trip. After getting home from shopping on Monday I found a bunch more coupon & sale match-ups so I decided to head back. Plus my savings ratio the other day really stunk. I needed to do better than that. Here’s the complete haul:
Spent $23.01, Saved $38.72
There are 2 pretty great Rochester exclusive coupons in today’s (1/31) Democrat & Chronicle. Go to Section H the Gates/Chili featured section to find them. And no I’m not talking about a Bill Gray’s BOGO, althouh I’m sure there’s 1 or 4 of those elsewhere in the paper.
Check out the two receipts from my shopping excursions this week. The one on the left is from Tops and the one on the right is from Wegmans. Coupons on the back of register receipts are nothing new. Useful coupons on the back of a register receipt is new however. Congrats to Wegmans for doing it right. Their receipts now feature store coupons for products you may actually use. Notice the Tops example has the same 20 year old car wash and state auto inspection coupons. Which would you rather have?
Tops rocks! Today was yet another very satisfying trip to Western New York’s most under-appreciated grocery store. The savings I get there weekly puts hometown Wegmans to shame. Yet the perception locally about Tops is much like THIS. That’s too bad. You can have your sushi bar Wegmans fans, I’ll take my sales at Tops over that any day. Today’s shopping highlights include:
Spent $16.64, Saved $31.64
I can’t stop singing their jingle right now. “Tops never stops, saving you more.” Today was one of those days where the couponing rush just got to me. I went shopping with a $25 budget, $30 if there’s some good unanticipated sales. I had exactly $30.85 in my pocket. As the fella began ringing up my groceries I just watched that subtotal climb. It wasn’t looking good. When it crossed $70 I began to shake a little. Had I gotten too carried away? Then came the fun part. I handed him my Bonus Card and my coupons and once again the mental budget came out perfect. I have no idea how I did it, to be honest. Final price, $30.84. I left with but one penny to spare. Holy crap. Highlights include:
Spent $30.84, Saved $41.99
