How I Used Gift Cards to Save $75 on Groceries at Food Lion
Just before Christmas, MaxMyShopping posted the Food Lion deal that detailed how you could save $15 on your next shopping trip at Food Lion for buying $100 in selected gift cards. A co-worker who also uses MaxMyShopping mentioned how he planned to buy something at Bass Pro Shops for $400 so he bought that amount in Bass Pro Shop gift cards from Food Lion and got (4) $15 coupons – a total savings of $60.
Now I never would have thought of that – but it gave me an idea… I was planning to buy some gift cards for Christmas anyway AND I really needed new shoes – a LOT of shoes. So, I ended up buying $700 in gift cards. Now, that should have been $105 in grocery savings but the only Visa gift cards that were part of the deal had a $5.95 fee. BUT – I did end up saving $75 – just for doing something I was going to do anyway.
So, even though I posted that deal, it took one of our super-smart MaxMyShopping subscribers to show me how to MAX that savings!!
There was a little bit of a “catch” in that all these coupons have to be used before 12-31-2013 but I am sure I can find plenty to buy before then!
Thanks Glen S!!! Great way to Max YOUR Shopping!
