Another money saving idea I have been using to save our family more money on our grocery bill is taking advantage of grocery rebates. Many times manufacturers will offer special rebates as an incentive for people to buy their product. Sometimes these rebates can save you money or provide products for free.
I took advantage of a rebate offer today. After reading the “rules” thoroughly, I decided that this rebate would be a worthwhile deal for our family. I was already planning on buying a large amount of this product because one of my grocery stores had these vegetables buy one, get on free. The rebate called for 18 products to be purchased to receive a $10 rebate by mail. Normally the deal would not have been as good as it was, but since the products were on sale for buy one, get on free — this deal was Very Good indeed.
I planned out exactly what I would be purchasing, to avoid any confusion in the store. I purchased my rebate items on a separate ticket for my own simplicity. The total cost for these items was $18.06. With the store sale the total was now $11.06. With my rebate, my total cost for $18.06 worth of food is now $1.06!
For a few extra minutes of your time and the cost of a stamp, rebates are an excellent way to save even more money off your grocery bill.
