I learned something new today about how to save money at Dominick's that I wanted to share with you.
You know your Dominck's preferred shopper card? Did you know you can load e-coupons onto that card from the web (Cellfire.com and Coupons.com are two I use). The e-coupons load with a click, and are redeemed instantly at the checkout when you use your card to pay (or enter your phone number if you've forgotten your card). Every week new e-coupons show up and you go in and click to add those, too. The coupons have expiration dates of a few weeks. Don't redeem the e-coupon and it disappears when it expires.
Seems straightforward, right? Well, here's the catch. I learned today over at couponerswanted.com that sometimes Dom's has more than one of the same e-coupon online. Say for example, this week there's a Bisquick e-coupon for 50c/1. You load it to your card. In two weeks there's another one, but with a different expiration date. You load that one to your card. Now your card has two Bisquick e-coupons on it, with two different expiration dates. Take it to the store and buy ONE Bisquick and BOTH e-coupons come off ($1 in this case). Both coupons are now removed from your card.
Add to this savings by taking in a manufacturer's paper coupon for Bisquick (check coupontom.com for sources) and now you have even more savings.
You can also print your list of e-coupons from cellfire.com or coupons.com to jog your memory and compare to the weekly sales ads.
Pretty cool, huh? I learned something new today.
