How to Get Free Groceries Video

Free Grocery Shopping

Some weeks all things line up perfectly and an opportunity for free grocery shopping easily happens.    The sale, the need, the coupon all lined up perfectly and I was able to “buy” Ken’s Salad Dressing for zero out of pocket.   When this deal was current I had listed it on my weekly grocery sales match-ups, but the coupon/deal is no longer available it ended last week.  I want to encourage you to take advantage of these deals the moment they happen!

Smiths/Kroger deal:
Ken’s Salad Dressing 8-9oz – $1
Used the $1/1 Ken’s Dressing Coupon (6/30 expired)
Final Price: Free

It is no secret!  If a chance to grocery shop for free happens it only makes sense to get a few extra items and stock-up. The #1 way to do this is have access to the coupons, and the most reliable way to get those coupons is have them delivered to your doorstep on Sunday morning. As a home delivery customer you will be first to get all the inserts available, get the newspaper any other way and you may not get all the inserts.

There are huge discount newspaper deals, See the Newspaper Discounts for your deal!

Happy Free Grocery Shopping!

Did you do any FREE Grocery Shopping this week?

We all love to read about a deal!!

How To Shop A 10 For Sale Video

10:09 am

by Jennifer Freeman

Come along on a shopping trip, let me walk you through the differences between the 10 for sales!  If you like this video, be sure to head on over to my Youtube page and click the “thumbs up” and leave a comment!

Ever get confused by a Buy 10 and Save $5 sale verses the Buy 10 for $10?  They are VERY different sales and it’s imperative you understand the differences.  Without knowing the nuances between the two different 10 For sales you may find yourself spending unnecessary money.

Don’t Skip This First Step!  When getting out to shop the sale, look at the front of the store for a card near the weekly ads that will list all the items included in the sale – most often not everything on sale will be showing in the ad!

What I do is get my first group of coupons prepared for the sale based on the items in the ad., then when I am at the store I pick up the list of all the items included the sale.  Later I will come back to shop more.

How To Shop a 10 For $10 Sale?

Buying 10 for $10 is a fancy way to say — each item is only $1.  This type of sale does not require you to purchase exactly 10 items.  Of course always double-check the fine print but 99% of the time you do not have to buy 10 to get this deal.  To add your benefit of the 1o for $10 sale be sure to pair coupons to each item.

This sale allows you to buy 1 item for $1 or 5 items for $5 or 14 items for $14!

Example Purchases:
Buy 1 Hormel Chili with Beans can = $1
use $.25/1 Hormel Chili coupon
Final Price:  $.75 a can

Buy 2 Hormel Chili with Beans cans =$2
Use $.55/2 Hormel Chili coupon
Final Price: “$1.45 for 2

Buy 10 Hormel Chili with Beans = $10
Use 2 – $.55/2 Hormel Chili coupon (print 2 per computer)
and use 6 $.25/1 Hormel Chili coupon
Final Price:  $7.40

Basically, use any combination of purchases you want!  Search the free coupon database I provide to find all the coupons available for the sale.

Here is a another $10 for 10 sale video.

How To Shop A Buy 10 And Save $5 Sale?

This sale you must buy 10 items to get the $5 savings. If by error you pick up any item that is not in the sale you will not receive your $5 off!  There must be groups of 10 items purchased to qualify for the savings.   It’s a costly mistake if you don’t get the correct number of items, trust me I know from experience.  It was a simple mistake when I picked up 10 cans of Lindsey olives.  I didn’t realize one can was Jumbo Olives and not included in the sale.  Because I watched the screen at the cash register I caught my mistake!

See the video to know how to identify the $10 for $5 sale items! It is very clearly shown if you know what to look for during the sale.  Select any combination of 10 participating items in the sale and not necessarily 10 identical items.   Coupons CAN be combined with this sale! Search for coupons.

Like the 10 for $10 sale, not all items included will be in the ad.  So, go to my first step above and start there.

Example Purchases:
Hormel Chili $1.49 each or Buy 10 and Save $5 instantly!

Buy 10 Hormel Chili with Beans cans for $1.49 each = $14.99
Get $5 instantly for buying 10 participating items (-$5)
and use 5  – $.55/2 Hormel Chili coupon (-$2.75)
Final Price:  $7.24 for 10 participating items

Or
Buy 6 Hormel Chili with Beans cans for $1.49 each = $8.94
Buy 4 Mac & Cheese for $1.29 each = $5.16
Get $5 instantly for buying 10 participating items (-$5)
and use 3  – $.55/2 Hormel Chili coupon (-$1.75)
and use 1 – $1/3 Mac & Cheese coupon (-$1)
Final Price:  $6.35 for 10 participating items

These are all examples and coupons may no longer be available.  But search through the free coupon database to search for more.

 I sure hope the explanation of these two 10 for sales will help you understand the nuances and differences.  These sale are a HUGE savings and my number one way to get a stock-up pricing.

Save BIG on your groceries over the next 2 weeks using the Buy 10, Save $5 Instantly Mega Sale. The sale is from Nov 6-19 at Kroger stores: Smith’s, King Soopers, Ralph’s, Food4less, etc.

Watch this video to make sure you do not miss out on your big savings!

  1. Check the sales ad for this week.
  2. Search for all the coupons on these sales items in the Free Coupon Database.
  3. Watch the video detailing how to maximize the savings
  4. Head to the store and work your deals!
  5. While at the store, usually up front by the ad rack or at customer service, look for a small card that has listed ALL the items included in the Mega sale.  All items are not listed in the weekly ad flier.

HOT Tip:  This symbol <+ needs to show after each item you purchase!  This means it is included in the Buy 10 Save $5 instantly sales.  This will show on your receipt AND it shows on the cashier screen after the item is scanned.

At times, the <+ does NOT show yet the item is included in the sale.   Just point this out to the cashier & bring your “included items” list and they will correct this on the spot.
