Lately my grocery bills are crazy out of control. It’s been a month with a lot of travel so I tend to stock up so I can be sure if I am away that everyone has something to eat. My husband is good in the kitchen and around the house any time of the year really. My older daughter is getting pretty good at helping too. But when I am away, or if I anticipate a really busy period of time, I like to try to stack the deck in their favour by purchasing lots of ingredients they can quickly turn into a meal. That’s what I was doing today – stocking the pantry and the fridge in case I go away to Florida for another travel related opportunity. I used to think that big shops like that are hard to save money on. But Flipp coupons and Flipp coupon matchups make saving easier no matter how you shop.
Flipp has been one of my favourite apps since it launched. I wrote about Flipp when it first came out. I Love that Flipp app. It’s so simple to use and I can scan all my flyers easily for either big items or tiny items. I am still hunting for appliances and so I have been relying on Flipp to help me comparison shop and look for the best deal each week on the brands I have in mind.
But I didn’t actually know about Flipp coupons until this past month. The Flipp app now has a coupon section. Hallelujah and why not, right?
Here’s how it works:
It’s easy to use located on the lower menu bar beside the Flyers icon.
Click on coupons and see what comes up any given week.
Tap or select your coupons and the clip them.
When you are done click on the clippings section and hit print.
Type in your email address and they will be sent to you.
Print them off your computer.
BUT wait, it gets better. Have patience because this is worth it. The magic of Flipp Coupons lies in the Matchups. So you snag the coupon and then look beside to see if the app has matched a deal up for you.
This might require a couple of different trips. But here’s how I did it. I did some of my shopping at No Frills today. I used a few coupons that didn’t appear to have matchups there at No Frills. I also used one coupon with a matchup. In total, I saved $20 on a $120 spend. That was one matchup and a few coupons (maybe 5 at most)
Then I headed to Sobey’s with my coupon matchups that were relevant there. The coupon then is matched to the lowest priced item in the flyer, so in my case this week I found a couple good matchups at Sobey’s saving me about $10 with the coupons and matchups. Some of those savings were protein items like meats which can be extremely costly these days. I saved about $10 there on a very small shop. Then I headed also at Rexall. Arm and Hammer liquid laundry detergent (which I sometimes buy). The coupon matchup for Rexall Arm and Hammer ended up driving the price down to $1.99. That’s a super price for laundry detergent. I might normally pay $6 to $7 for that much laundry soap and I got it for $1.99 so really that’s $5 saved on the budget. There are dozens of coupons for household items and many matchups on these too.
There are also Flipp coupons and savings for big items. I spied several good coupons for Toys ‘R Us items. So if you have very small people or babies on the way then you need to start using Flipp coupons and matchups.
The matchups amplify your savings and help save some of the time you would normally spend scouring flyers for the best deals. So, comparison shoppers, and thrifty coupon clippers be warned this will make your life so much easier. Flipp takes the hard work out of shopping and helps you to save money.
Have you used Flipp? I challenge you to use Flipp coupon matchups this week and share your savings here…Did you save more than you thought?
