January Budget Tools
Dec 31, 2017
January is the month of dreary weather, and harsh cuts in budgets. It’s the month we get the credit card bills from December, and decide to tighten up our spending. No one likes it! Including me. I wish we could at least have warmer weather while we are doing unpleasant things like planning on how to save our money.
There are some things, that make saving money a bit more pleasant. One of those things is having help. County Market is big on providing savings help for anyone who want it. We offer help to you customers by providing several forms of easy to use tools. These tools are FREE, simple, and easy.
Tool #1 Penny Pinchers
These are store issued coupons that we create for customers who want to pick up some items at deeper savings than the weekly sale. The weekly sale list includes around 120 items that are discounted up to 20% off the everyday low price. Yet the Penny Pincher items are specially stocked and negotiated items that will be in for a two week window. Your Penny Pincher coupons are listed online at all times, and are free at the customer service desk. You can clip them at the store, or use them the next week. All offers are good for at least 14 days. These special coupons are store issued, so you are allowed to stack a manufacturer’s coupon with it for redemption. That means you can get Skippy Peanut butter for 30% off the standard price, AND use a Unilever Skippy coupon to save an additional $.50 on top of the same jar. You’ll end up with 60% savings off the everyday low price.
Tool #2 Digital Coupons
These are amazing savers for all customers and free. Yes, you need access to a computer to get them. You can do it right here and now! You just go into your max card account online and start adding digital offers to your max card number. It’s a simple digital clip. Or, you can use the app on your phone. It’s free to download, and free to save all that money. All digital coupons allow stacking so long as the offer is written differently. So if you have $2/4 coupon and 2 of $1/2 newspaper coupons on the same set of 4 items, You can use them all! What a deal. There are over 150 coupons waiting for you right now that require no scissors, no sorting, and no purchase.
Tool #3 Online support.
We offer you a coupon blog, (you are here now), County Market Coupon News facebook page for notifications and alerts, texts savings, My County Market facebook page, Youtube catalog of coupon savings videos and more. All of these services are free. It helps to know when each tool is available, and give you a social network to stay motivated to use them. You’ll get actual coupons, links to coupons, contests, and tips. The online support is updated several times per day. You can always ask private questions, and read other savings tips from other customers in the comments sections.
