Extreme Couponing Tip: Save Time and Money by Shopping Double Ad Days!

If you have a store near you that has Double Ad days, save time by shopping once every 2 weeks and scoring double the deals!

Grocery stores such as Sprouts Farmers Market, Sunflower Market, Sun Harvest, Henry’s Farmers Market, and Elm City Market feature a “Double Ad Day.” Most sales run Wednesday to Wednesday, meaning that if you shop Wednesday, you can get two weeks’ worth of deals at once! Save time by shopping once every 2 weeks instead of each and every week to get in on the hot sale prices. These stores are renowned for their fresh and often organic produce and bulk items at super low prices. This translates into lots of fresh fruits, veggies, bulk nuts, oatmeal, and yogurt pretzels for my family for very little money!

Another well-kept secret in the shopping world is that some stores start up sale prices the night before the next sale day and will still honor the previous week’s sales. This can vary widely from location to location so it will be on a trial and error basis. You will want to exercise caution because while the sale signs may be up throughout the store, they will display the sale date span. If an item does not ring up at the sale price before midnight on Sunday/Wednesday, then the store does not have to honor the sale price since, technically, the sale does not begin until opening the next day. So when in doubt, ASK. The cashier or manager will be able to tell you when new prices are in their system.
