To my fellow couponers: A big heads up on some extra savings.
When you're out and about grocery shopping this week, be on the look out for what has become increasingly rare: wine tags and beer rebates.
While prepping for Super Doubles at Lowes Foods and Harris Teeter, I spotted several.
Not sure what a wine tag is?
Wine tags are coupons that hang around the necks of bottles of wine on display in the grocery stores. Not only are they hard to find, they typically offer savings on fresh meats, deli items, fruits and vegetables. A rarity in the coupon world!
The ones I found (at both HT and LF) are for:
- $1 off a $2 purchase of deli cheese (This one will double during Super Doubles, by the way.)
- $2 off a rotisserie chicken (Use this one on Sundays when HT has rotisserie chickens discounted.)
Both coupons are from the Rex Goliath brand of wine but no wine purchase is necessary to use these coupons.
Not familiar with beer rebates? These are also often on foods that rarely have coupons associated with them. And, once again, no alcohol purchase is required.
The rebates I spotted are all sponsored by Corona:
- $5 back on a $5 purchase of chips and salsa (so FREE)
- $3 back on the purchase of three avocados (potentially FREE)
- $10 back on a $10 purchase of meat and/or poultry (FREE, once again)
So take a walk down the beer and wine aisles looking for wine tags and beer rebates. But please be courteous to your fellow bargain shoppers and leave plenty behind.
Everyone has their own coupon ethics policies, but I generally take one for myself and one to share with a couponing friend. That way we can all save.
