Couponing101:  Price Less and Save-A-Lot

Couponing at Price Less Foods and Save-A-Lot is pretty basic.

Neither has a loyalty program, nor a fuel program.

Neither store works with SavingStar or Ibotta.

Both stores advertise low prices and accept coupons.

The biggest difference between the two is that Price Less adds 10 percent to your total when you check out, so the prices on the shelves are not the price that you will pay. They still have good deals, but remember to do the math when shopping there.

According to the Price Less web site ( ):

"We price our products at cost and then add 10 percent at the checkout. Typical grocery stores have weekly specials at deeply discounted prices - even below cost on some items - to entice customers. That means other prices in the store must be higher in order to balance their profits. Price Less simply offers the best deals up front, cutting out the need for sales gimmicks, rewards cards and constant price comparison shopping."

Price Less foods will accept coupons and they even provide you with links to the printable sites on their site:

Their coupon policy is available at:

Like Target, Dollar General, Walgreens, CVS, and Family Dollar, Price Less will allow you to stack a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon.

Price Less offers mobile alerts for their customers. Text PLFOODS to 95577 to enroll in mobile alerts. Price Less will send you exclusive offers and last minute deals. You can also follow Price Less on FaceBook.

Save-A-Lot offers the "Smart Shopper Club." According to "Occasionally, Save-A-Lot also issues store coupons through our Facebook page and through the Smart Shopper Club emails."

Here's a great tip: Save-A-Lot will often issue a coupon for $5 off $25. When you check out, make sure that you use this coupon first. If you use it last, your other coupons may bring your total under twenty-five dollars.

According to, each store has its own coupon policy.

Each store offers amazing weekly deals, and if you haven't checked them out, I highly suggest that you give them a try.

Please send all questions, comments, and/or tips to I look forward to hearing from you.
