Free Food/ Senior Appreciation Day

June 10th, 2021 at 01:57 pm

I went to my grocery store last Tuesday to pick up a few things and to start taking advantage of my newly discovered 10% senior discount every Tuesday. They were also having a senior customer appreciation day, and every senior (60 years old or older who have the store club card) received a free bag full of products!  What a nice surprise. The bag itself is a very nice, very large reusable grocery bag. Inside I recieved these items:

1 pen 

1 roll of paper towels 

2 rolls of Scott toilet paper 

1 pack of cheese and peanut butter crackers 

1 nature valley granola bar 

nutrigrain mixed berry bar 

1 quaker oats granola bar 

1 box of stove top chicken stuffing 

1 box of cereal 

1 pound bag of white rice 

1 box of pasta 

1 jar of Prego pasta sauce 

1 can of green beans 

1 can of mixed vegetables 

1 can of mandarin oranges 

1 can of ravioli 

1 can of chicken soup 

1 can of vegetable beef soup 

3 individual packs of quaker oats maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal 

1 reusable grocery bag 


Anything I don't use I will donate but I think I will use most of it. I had a pack of the oatmeal for breakfast this morning and it was delicious! None of the food items were anywhere close to expiration and weren't damaged in any way.


I also used some of the digital coupons I am now using from the grocery store app on some things I bought, saving me $6.56. Some of these coupons are pretty high value. I am determined to do everything I can to keep my grocery spending down in spite of rising costs. 


I also discovered that I can earn 100 grocery reward (store card) points just by going on line and filling out the customer satisfaction survey that is printed on the receipt. You can do this once every 7 days. It only takes about 2 minutes to fill it out. Points add up for the month and expire on the 4th of the following month. Points can be used for money off certain products, or, if you have 500 points to use you can get $5 off your next $25 purchase. You earn one point for every dollar you spend during the month, but these survey points make it possible for me to get up to that 500 point mark. I will certainly take advantage of the $5 off. 


None of these ways to save are new, but they were new to me because I just hadn't taken the time to look into all the ways I can save just by utilizing what was available to me from my grocery store ,their club card, and the app.  All of these small savings can really add up.
