No Frills Now Accepting PC Plus Points!

Posted by on September 18, 2014 at 12:00 PM

No Frills Now Accepting PC Plus Points!

I am over the moon about this announcement! No Frills is now accepting PC Plus points. Woohoo! This does start tomorrow so don’t rush out right now with your wallets!

If you are a regular shopper of the PC brand of stores – Loblaw, Zehrs, Fortinos, Superstore, etc., you’ve been happily collecting your PC Plus points and saving so much money on your groceries. In the first month that PC Plus became available, I saved $80 on my groceries. I shopped at Loblaw each week and loved the store. Unfortunately for me, I moved to a small town where the nearest PC Plus accepting store is a 20-minute drive away. My town has Sobeys and No Frills and both weren’t great options. Sobeys offers a rewards system, but it is far inferior to the PC Plus one with more purchases needed to get points and a confusing points system. The PC Plus one is so simple – 20,000 points is $20 and so on. I don’t mind shopping at No Frills but felt a little jaded that I wasn’t getting points for it. Well, now I can!

This means that not only do I get to price match, get some low prices overall, I’ll get rewarded for it. Luckily for me, my No Frills is a fairly and new and well-kept store and the produce and meat look decent. I know sometimes shopping at No Frills you can’t always trust the freshness of the fresh stuff.

Considering I am off to get groceries tomorrow, I’ve now changed my plans of driving to another city and I can do it right in town. I can’t wait to redeem some points! If you don’t know what PC Plus is, you can read my post about it here. While so many people had trouble getting an account or syncing accounts, I had no trouble when I signed up. The only annoying part is that you have to load your offers (your personal ones) from your email each week. There are in-store offers that you’ll get, but if you don’t load those other ones, you won’t get the points for them.

Does Buying in Bulk Save Money?

Posted by on September 15, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Does Buying in Bulk Save Money?

We’re constantly told by big box stores like Costco and Walmart that buying in bulk will save us money, but is that really true or just clever marketing-speak?  Well, Bargainmoose Canada has always wondered that too, so we took it upon ourselves to investigate and we found that yes, buying in bulk can save you money, but it’s not a forgone conclusion that it will.  To make sure you don’t misstep on your quest to keep as many dollars as you can in your pocket, we’ve laid out this checklist of dos and don’ts to maximize your savings when buying in bulk.

 Do

Take advantage of sales and coupons – If it’s possible to stack coupons, (use multiple copies of the same coupon on one item or use different coupons that both apply to the same item) do so on bulk items the moment they go on sale. This way, you’re able to reduce the price your paying per item as far as it will go. Make sure you present your coupons before you pay. Also, make sure that the sales don’t have a limit and that the coupons can be combined with other offers.

Figure out the price per unit – The only way you’ll know for sure if you’re truly saving money is if the price per unit is favourable and you should only buy in bulk when the price per unit is low. A unit is an actual measurable amount or quantity of whatever you’re buying. All you need to do to figure out this crucial piece of information is to divide the cost of the item by the quantity. A reporter for CBN.com found that for the right price per unit you could save up to 31% by buying bulk at American big box store Sam’s Club. Think about it, saving 20 cents on a bowl of cereal or a can of soup may not sound like much, but, as CBN points out, it can amount to a savings of $208 a year for a family of four who eats cereal everyday.

Make sure you have the storage – There’s no point buying in bulk if you don’t have the storage to keep the many items you buy or if it will cost you more to store the item than you’ll save by buying it in bulk. If you do have the storage though, make sure you rotate the stock and check the dates on perishable items so that you’ll be able to eat them before they go bad. Remember, even canned goods have dates on them. If you’re storing things in the freezer, make sure you date them, so the older food gets eaten first and always separate the perishable items from the non-perishable ones. If you find an item you simply can’t pass up thanks to the price, but you don’t have enough room to store it, why not split it up between friends so that you can use it faster and you’re also able to share the wealth. For more tips on organizing your stockpile, see this Bargainmoose article from a few years back.

Don’t

Don’t buy an item in bulk that you’ve never used or had before – What if you buy lots of garbage bags in bulk, but every bag rips? What if a particular soap irritates your skin and what if that new foodstuff you thought sounded so good, tasted like dirt? Now, imagine buying those craptacular items in bulk and inadvertently sentencing yourself to having to use them for the next few months or worse, the next few years. This is why you should never buy items in bulk that you’ve never tried before and made sure they are what you really want. Anything else is just a waste of money.

Don’t bulk binge – When people start exploring the wonders of bulk buying, they usually can’t help, but go hog wild and buy everything they need in bulk in one trip. This is a good way to spend yourself to the poor house. Instead, Trent Hamm of The Simple Dollar recommends raising your grocery supply budget by 25% and using that extra 25% to by some bulk items when they go on sale. Eventually, your stockpile will mean you don’t need that 25% increase anymore and when you do buy more, you’ll simply be refilling your supply or taking advantage of the best discounts available, which means the grocery budget will be even better than before you started because you’ll be buying fewer items way less often.

Don’t let your bulk stores get too scarce – Even a stockpile of bulk items can run out and suddenly, you may find yourself taking an emergency shopping trip and dropping lots of money to refill your stores when it’s not advantageous economically to do so. Instead of having to scramble at the last minute, when you see you’re running low on a particular item, start looking for sales, deals and discounts for that item. Some items go faster than others, so a good rule of thumb is making sure your good for the next month on every item you have. If you have too much of something, you can always donate it to friends or the local food bank.

 More bang for your bulk!

Follow these simple dos and don’ts and you’ll never get ripped off or overspend when buying bulk items. There’s a fine line between marketing and money saving so be smart and strategic about your bulk purchases.

Sobeys Switching To Air Miles   Use Your Rewards Now!

There has been a lot of talk since the announcement of Sobeys buying Safeway and the new changes coming with these stores. Some of the changes are good and some of them are not the greatest (in my mind at least). There are a lot of specifics with the new changes, so we wanted to give our Moosers a rundown of exactly what, how and when things will be happening.

What is happening?

Sobeys is switching their rewards program over to Air Miles (Excluding Ontario).  There will no longer be Sobeys rewards that will earn you cash back on your future purchases.  Right now, you get Sobeys points for every single purchase you make.  Additionally, you can get bonus points with in store deals such as 20x the points on specific items, or an extra 50 points when you buy two or more of something.  These points add up on your Sobeys card and you are able to redeem them for money at $5 increments. Personally, I wait until I have about at least $20 and redeem my points to get free groceries every few months.  I love this system.

Right now, 725 points will get you $5 off, 1375 points will get you $10 off and 2000 will get you $15 off your purchases.  The top reward is 12,500 points that will get you $100 off your groceries. This system is pretty great considering how easy and fast it is to rack up the points with bonus offers and regular shopping.

How will the new system work?

The new rewards system is very different. Gone are the days of getting cash back on future purchases. The new rewards will be Air Miles. You will need to link your Club Sobeys card to your Air Miles card and all of your points will be transferred for you. Your Air Miles card will be the only card you will need at Sobeys.

If you are not an Air Miles collector, I suggest you get an Air Miles card. If you do not get a card you will lose all of your points and you will not be able to get any type of rewards.  The only rewards that are offered at Sobeys will be Air Miles. You will no longer be able to use your Club Sobeys card.

When and What should I do?

Everything will be switched over as of September 12th 2014. You can link your Sobeys card to your Air Miles card anytime before then, but as of September 12th, the new system will start and you will be getting Air Miles instead of Club Sobeys Points.

You will get one Air Mile for every 14 Club Sobeys points. In my opinion, this is bad. Getting cash back is far better than the conversion to Air Miles you will get, so I strongly suggest you use up all of your points now while you can get the most out of them. Make sure to link your card to Air Miles before this date because if you don’t (or if you do not have an Air Miles card) you won’t be able to transfer your points. I was at my local store and they said a lot of customers will be transferred automatically if you signed up in store originally for your Club Sobeys card. For all of the people that lost their card and just use their phone number at the till, you will not be automatically transferred. Since Sobeys won’t be doing it automatically for everyone, I wouldn’t take the chance and I would do it asap.

If you link your card before September 12th, you won’t get your points transferred just yet.  You can continue to save them and use them until the night of September 11th, so there is no risk by linking your cards earlier. All of these changes will be happening at Sobeys with the exception of Ontario Stores.

Bulk Barn Printable Coupon: $3 Off $10

Bulk Barn Printable Coupon: $3 Off $10

(Bumping an old post with the new coupon!) This is a little printable coupon for the lovers of Bulk Barn Canada. You can get a $3 discount on a spend of $10 or more with this coupon – very nice discount.

This Bulk Barn $3 coupon tends to crop up about once a month, and it’s used by a lot of the Bargainmoosers, a very popular coupon on here. If you want to check out the weekly specials, click here, select your province and see if there’s anything special you’d like to combine with the coupon.

Bulk Barn is absolutely super for some things, like cereals, dried foods, candy. I’ve pictured licorice allsorts in the image above, just to get your tastebuds flowing.

Bargainmooser Carlyn had a funny story to share a few months ago:

Just a couple weeks ago I called the Bulk Barn to identify a mysterious white powder my husband had picked up for me. I couldn’t remember anymore what I had asked him to pick up. Baking powder is now identified and labelled! I love shopping at the Bulk Barn.

Well Carlyn, I am glad your “white powder” was something innocuous… !!

My personal recommendation: if you have a lot of items you want to buy, split your orders into $10 sections, and use a few coupons. It says that there is a limit of “one coupon per week” so this method will only work if you either bring a few people with you, and you each use a coupon, or you make a few separate visits to the store. Print it out a couple of times if you want to give that a try because you’ve got up to the 26th of June to make use of it. You’re still within the terms and conditions of the original coupon.

Bargainmooser Cher lives too far away from the Bulk Barn store to receive her flyers in the mail, so she avails of these coupons when we share them on Bargainmoose. Hope you can make use of this one too!
