Best Deal on AZ Republic Home Delivery 2016!

newspaper_126

The Arizona Republic is celebrating their 126th birthday with a super low price of $1.26 per week!

Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday home delivery for $5.42 per month for the first 6 months.

Go here to get this amazing offer now through May 10th.

Sunday papers normally cost $2.  If you’re lucky, you can find them at Dollar Tree for a buck, but they often run out and not all stores have them.  And … you often get the “diet” version … skinny without all the coupons home delivery offers.  I love having my paper show up on my doorstep (okay, the end of my driveway) with full coupon inserts.

You need to cancel, if you want, at the end of the 6 month promotion period or you will be auto-billed the full rate.

Arizona Walmart Ad Matching List ~ 4/27/16 – 5/3/16

Helpful links:
Price matching policy & tips
Online price matching policy
Walmart Savings Catcher program

Notes : (Keep in mind that your store many vary from another store & you can’t count on getting everything on this list.)

  • Your store may no longer match the Hispanic market prices, including Food City.  (It doesn’t seem to be very widespread,
  • at this point.)
  • Your store may only match store locations that they consider close to them.
  • Sometimes, there are price variations from store to store, especially Smart & Final.  See your local ad for exact price. (Smart & Final ad here.)
  • Policy says they will not match store brand prices, but the majority report their store will.
  • Walmart sells some produce individually, not by the pound.  Their policy says they won’t match those items, unless the ad shows the same (lb to lb, or each to each).  Some stores will do it.
  •  Meats are hard to match.  Most stores are strict about same size packaging, cuts, brands, etc.  We include more than you’ll probably be able to find at your store since selection may vary.
  • Milk ad matching policy can vary from store to store.  Most seem to carry Price First brand for $1.99.  If not, that seems to be the brand most stores want you to get when matching.

Some items below need coupons, many don’t.  Click the green plus signs to make your own personalized shopping list!  (When you do, it will be categorized for easier shopping.)

♥ ♥ Hearts on Lists! ♥ ♥ (Find Best Deals More Easily)

♥ ♥ = We love this deal!  We doubt it will go much lower than this.  Stock up!
♥  = This is a great deal.  If you use this product, get it!

This is pretty self-explanatory, but for those who haven’t noticed yet … we just started adding hearts to the coupon match ups.

As you can imagine, we don’t use every product we have on the lists.  We aren’t 100% sure what a good deal is on everything.  This is just a guideline to get you focused in on some of the best deals.  If you use a lot of something or specifically need a product, it doesn’t mean nothing else on the list is a good deal.  Don’t be afraid of the other deals.  :)

If you ever see something that’s an amazing deal, to you, and we missed marking it … let us know!  We’d love to make sure we highlight it for others, so they don’t miss out.

Hope this makes your life a little easier and helps you save even more!

Walmart Ad Matching List AZ ~ HELP US WITH YOUR COMMENTS!

walmart_logo

We want the Walmart ad matching list to be as relevant and concise as possible, but it’s hard since all locations don’t follow their written policy.  I’d love to leave items off, if they’re just cluttering the list and you’re not able to match.

Questions for you:  (Please let us know in the comments.  If you have store specific info, including cross streets would be great, for others who don’t know what their closest store does.)

1)  Does your Walmart match store brands?  Ex.  Will they match eggs, store brand apple juice, etc?
2)  Does your store match pound for “each” on produce?  Ex:  If watermelon is $0.10/lb and Walmart sells them for $3.99, will they match it?
3)  How does meat matching go for you?  Does it need to be branded, like Foster Farms?  Will they match “boneless skinless chicken breasts $1.89/lb?”  Will they match if it the ad says “bulk ” or “family pack” if your store only carries a reg. size package?
4)  Anything else you want us to know about your matching experience, that might help us?

Sadly, I know that with Walmart, it can vary.  I also know it can vary witin the same store, depending on cashier.  Sheesh … I’ve even had it vary with the same cashier!  But … I’m trying to find an overall “norm” that’s out there.  I shop at two (sometimes three) different Walmarts and still have luck with store brands, but I don’t even ask for lbs/each and I rarely do meats.  Recently, at one store, I was told they don’t do store brand anymore, but then … well, all cashiers have done it and that cashier even did it “this once.”

Please comment below, giving specifics so it’s helpful for us and others.  Thanks!

See the most current Walmart ad matching list in the “Walmart category” above.  Or, this link will take you to the category, but you may have to scroll down a little.

Note from Juli . . .

bargain_believer_logo

Please tell everyone in AZ you know (or even strangers!) to check us out.  If they don’t already love you, they may start!  :)  Most of you know this, but just in case you don’t … I pay people to help me since I just don’t have time to spend on what is needed  to keep this site going.  I use affiliate links and advertising, to generate an income.  We get to continue because of those who use our links and help us grow by telling others about Bargain Believer​.

I want to be honest/clear … our #1 priority is to save you money, not make money.  But, for one to happen, the other needs to happen or we can’t continue.  I still refuse to post things that I hope a few of you might jump on, just to make a buck .. at the expense of wasting everyone else’s time & diluting the things I find valuable.  We really pick and choose what we feel is the best, especially for AZ residents, without becoming a site that just lists Amazon & other affiliate deals all the time.  That means the majority of our posts make us a whopping $0.   I get as excited to post those as I do the money making ones, if I know you will benefit.

With that said, sometimes I feel guilty for posting the things I make money on.  In some ways, it would be easier if I didn’t make/need money.  My guilt would be less.

Later this afternoon, I will put up a post about Pogo Pass.  I’m sorry for those of you who are sick of seeing it.  However, please realize that it’s extremely popular and I get thanked for sharing it all the time.  It’s an amazing value and I completely believe in it.  Also, keep in mind that we have new people come to the site each day and most people don’t see every post we do (shocking to a few of you loyal followers, I know)  :)  Honestly … we probably couldn’t afford to keep doing what we’re doing without Pogo’s generous commission.  I’d love for you to share or tag people on that post (or any!) if you think anyone would benefit.  Side note:  Pogo can also be used for fundraisers.  If you know a school or non-profit that needs to make some money, please send me an email (juli@bargainbeliever.com).  Or, it can even be a business that wants to put flyers on their counter.  They are a super company to work with.

Okay, this didn’t start out so long in my mind, but I’m a world-class rambler.  I’m glad you’re here and really don’t know how to fully express that to you, but just believe me … I love sharing deals and it’s much easier to share them, than keep them to myself.  Well … in some ways.  :)  THANK YOU!  ~ Juli

They didn’t have everything on my list and/or some things just didn’t look good enough to buy.  I skipped those or got something else.   Often, I hear that people don’t like to ad match at Walmart because their produce isn’t good.   I won’t defend all their produce all the time, but I will say I get some great produce there.  If you absolutely need a cucumber, it may not be the place to go.  If you can live without cucumbers if they don’t look good, you’ll save a bunch!  I’m pretty flexible (almost always) on what produce I want/need.  It usually doesn’t bother me if I end up with more carrots instead of broccoli for one week.  If I really need it and it doesn’t look good, I just have to get it somewhere else.  I prefer to huge savings, to the occasional “need” that doesn’t get met.

Below is my list looked like.  (Use our current AZ Walmarat list and click the green plus signs in front of the items you want on your list.)

  • Old El Paso Refried Beans, Enchilada Sauce or Taco Shells (10-16 oz or 12-12 ct )   99¢  (Safeway)

I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Is Couponing Worth It?

coupons_&_scissors

I was asked (after hearing Safeway will probably be accepting coupons at face value in AZ soon, more here) …

Is couponing worth it?

If you want the short answer … yes, for me.

If you want the long answer, grab your coffee (maybe it’s a smoothie this time of year?) and snuggle up to your computer or mobile, as I share my thoughts.

When, I say “couponing,” I mean using paper coupons (printable, from Sunday paper, & misc. coupons that may show up) or digital coupons you can load directly to your shopping cards.

I only use coupons for products I will use or have a specific purpose for (donating, giving to friends, etc).  I’m not a true “extreme couponer.”  I’ve only seen a couple of the TLC shows, but I’m nothing like what I’ve seen.  I like to call myself an “intentional couponer.”  I use them wisely and save a bunch of money!  I don’t need a trailer to get my groceries home and one bottle of mustard will usually last us until it expires, around my house.

For me, couponing will still be worth it, even if coupons are taken at face value.  (Keep in mind that most of the country can only redeem coupons at face value and many do it.)  There is still money to be saved.

I’m a firm believer that pennies add up to quarters, add up to dollars, add up to $20, etc.  I’ll even still bend down to pick up a penny.  The bonus is a little bit of exercise, if nothing else.  :)

On the other hand, I also value my time.  If I’m finding that saving $3 is taking me an hour, I won’t do it.  My time is worth more than $3/hour.  On the other hand, if it takes me an hour to get ready to go to the grocery store (or an extra hour to run somewhere else & look at ads, etc.) and I end up saving $30 (random number for example) … totally worth my time.  I should say … usually!  There are weeks when I don’t have an hour to spare to save $30, as much as I want to.  I value my sanity more than thirty bucks.

As much as I love the savings and the financial freedom it helps bring to my family, it’s not for everyone.  I have different time, priorities, and needs than you do.  Don’t blindly use coupons, without counting the cost.  There are costs.  I would never deny that!

  • Time — What “wages” are acceptable to you?  Remember, it’s tax-free “income.”
  • Space — How will you store surplus?  Do you have room or need to stick with basics?
  • Sanity — Does the extra clutter (coupons or treasures you get) drive you nuts?
  • Need — Do you need to do it to make ends meet?
  • Want — Do you enjoy using the savings for something else that makes the effort worthwhile?
  • Respect — Does your spouse value the fact that you do it or does it drive him/her nuts?
  • Cost — How much are you spending on newspapers, ink, paper, buying coupons, gas, whatever?

Take a serious inventory of the above list.  Ponder it and calculate it.  If you feel it’s more of a burden, stop — unless you feel it’s a necessity!  (Well, I don’t see how you can resist clicking and loading a few digital coupons.)  :)  Yes, I know I run a coupon website.  Well, I don’t fully see it that way.  I run a money saving website, that often involves coupons, but there’s much more!

Whatever you end up doing with your coupon usage, I hope you stick around Bargain Believer.  We’ll always share deals that have coupons, but we go beyond that.  We want you to have fun with your family, without spending a bunch.  We’ll point you to those deals and other bargains we just can’t seem to keep to ourselves.  As long as there are businesses competing, there will always be bargains out there and we’ll help you find them!  We may even tempt the non-coupon users out there to click and load a digital coupon or even print a coupon every once in awhile.  The coupon/non-coupon line can be crossed at any time.  :)

I was going to share some other ways to save, but I’m afraid you’re falling asleep now.  And, I’m out of time.  Stay tuned … more on saving (beyond coupons) soon!

What do you think?

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)

If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!
