Let’s take a little crafting break and discuss grocery shopping. I know, I know. It isn’t a task we love, especially if we have kids in tow, but it is something that needs to be done on a regular basis… at least if you want to keep your family fed and happy! As you already know, I’m a meal planner. Every Sunday I write up my meal plan, then my grocery list. I usually hit the gym and then head to the grocery store. What I’ve never been is a coupon-clipper. I love the idea of coupons, and I’ll keep the ones that were printed at the checkout of the grocery store and use them during my next trip, but I never went through the paper clipping and collecting coupons. So when Hannaford, the grocery store where I shop, came out with their new My Hannaford Rewards program that included a super handy, and simple, app, I jumped right on!
What are the benefits of the My Hannaford Rewards program? Simple:
- Earn 2% for every store brand product that you buy! That includes produce, meat, seafood and deli items. Hannaford has been adding more and more great store brand products that my family and I enjoy and that cost less than name brand. I have my go-to staple Hannaford items and now I earn a 2% reward for purchasing something I was already buying!
- Get digital coupons delivered right inside the app! There are special offers that are “just for you,” plus other manufacturer coupons for your favorite brands. Now I don’t need to go searching for coupons, they get delivered right to my phone! It’s awesome!
- The special offers that I mentioned previously? That is built over time as you use the My Hannaford Rewards program. The program will get to know what items you purchase regularly and be able to personalize your special offers.
Sounds great, right? I wouldn’t be posting about it if I didn’t find it of value to me and my family! So how do you get in on the action? Signing up and earning rewards is easy! Sign up at hannaford.com, in store or via the new Hannaford app. I went the app route because it allows you to sign up instantly and you can easily earn and track your rewards, plus redeem those personalized coupons and offers I mentioned earlier!
Once a week I go into the app and virtually “clip” coupons for items I purchase regularly. Once clipped, they are ready to use until they expire. When I’m done shopping, I simply go to a register and either enter my phone number on the credit card terminal or the cashier scans the barcode in my app. Any clipped coupons in my app will be applied to eligible items in my order! Just.like.that. Even if there are no clipped coupons in the app, SCAN THAT BARCODE! That is how you earn your rewards. Quarterly you will receive an email telling you that it is time to activate your rewards to use on your next purchase, or you can check right in the app.
I’ve gotten over $8.00 in rewards since signing up for the app in late fall of last year. Plus I’ve earned a $5.00 and $2.00 off any order coupon via email and saved over $25.00 using coupons from the app! I have to shop, it’s now an option, so making the process easier to save while shopping is definitely a plus in my book.
