Let’s face it, couponing is getting harder. The value of the coupons seem to be going down or requiring you to buy multiple quantities. Prices are going higher at the stores all the time. We have a super easy way to save big on items you are already buying anyway.
If you are already part of the Driscoll’s Consumer Advisory Panel, yea! If not, read on.
More than half the time, the berries at the store will be Driscoll’s brand. If they are, you can save big, especially when you pair a great sale with a coupon. Juli just got 8 containers of strawberries for free. Actually, they paid her to buy them. She priced matched at Walmart and they gave her the overrage.
Here’s how it’s done:
Go here and sign up with Driscoll’s. You’ll automatically get a 50¢ coupon. Update: Julie let us know that she did not get the coupon after registering. They may have changed things since this post and you’ll need to take survey first to get the coupon. (Thanks, Julie!)
After that, whenever you buy Driscoll’s berries, you can go back here and take a quick survey. I know the survey well, and it took me less than 2 minutes to complete. It’s best if you remember some information like what store you bought them at and how much they were. You will also need the code on the sticker on the back of the container. It’s not the UPC, but the little code that I blacked out in the picture below.
As we finish a pack of berries, I just cut out the code and put the rest of the container in the recycle bin. Then, I put the little code over by my computer and the next time I have a few minutes, I’ll do the survey. I don’t remember the exact specifics on the number of surveys, but I think your first 5 or so you get a 50¢ coupon. After that, you get a 75¢ coupon. Once you’ve taken 15 surveys, you get a $1 coupon!
Now, I don’t need to tell you that the $1 off coupon will get you free berries at several stores this week.
They will email you the coupon, which you can print twice!
Just a note, they reset the survey amount every year. So, we will all start with 50¢ again in 2016.
It really is a win/win and a huge way to save on produce.
