If you love saving money, you probably use coupons or stick to buying items when they're on sale but did you know you can save a TON of money by scoring freebies at your local grocery store. It's simple, fun and rewarding!
How to find and use freebies to reduce your grocery bill:
Take Advantage of Your Grocery Store Club Card
Sign up for a club card at favorite grocery store. Many grocery store chains like Kroger (& affiliates), Safeway (& affiliates) and ShopRite often send their members free offers that can be digitally downloaded on to your card to be redeemed for free stuff. Just last month, Vons (a Safeway affiliate store) sent me two free offers: FREE Knorr Roasters and a FREE Bag of Mann's Veggie Mac-n-Cheese.
Popular grocery chains like Publix allow you to use a Manufacturer Coupon AND a Store Coupon towards one item. Reference your stores coupon policy to find out if they allow it. Using two coupons is better than using one and often leads to a freebie!
"Like" Your Favorite Brands
Follow your favorite brands on Facebook and Twitter. Companies often send out free samples and exclusive offers for their fans and followers. One of my favorites is free coffee samples!
TIP: I suggest creating a secondary no-cost email account for freebies, so your primary email doesn't fill up with newsletters. Plus, avoid any freebies that require your credit card or Social Security number.
Follow Coupon Blogs and Websites
Bookmark two or three blogs like Coupon Pro to stay updated on all the ways you can score free groceries and to share your freebie finds with a large community!
