5 Reasons to Visit Giant this Week, 06/26-07/02

  1. The $5/$15 meat purchase coupon is good for one more week, through 07/02. Pair it with the half-price $4.99 Porterhouse of T-Bone Steak, the 60% off $1.99/lb. pork chops, or the $0.99/lb. chicken drumsticks or thighs to get maximum meat discount!
  2. Sweet White Corn, 12 for $1.99. Roast it in-husk for a quick, tasty version!
  3. $3.88 watermelons, the cheapest watermelon price at Giant so far this year.
  4. $2.20 for 12-packs of Coke products. You must by 5 ($11 total) to get this price.
  5. The new discount certificates. Get up to 20% off a future shopping order! Between June 26 and July 30, every $1 you spend at Giant with your BonusCard will transalte to 1 point earned. Go to to activate your rewards. You can elect to "cash in" your points at any time at this link - cashing in 250 of your points will result in a 5% savings certificate printed out during your next cheeckout, good for a future transaction. 450 points = 10%, 600 points = 15%, and 800 points = 20% savings certificate.

    This deal is kind of convoluted, but I'll be curious to see what kind of rewards it yields. The problem is: I rarely spend over $50 at Giant in a single transaction, so assuming $50 is my "big haul", I would save $10 at most. $800 spent to save $10 isn't a particularly good motivator for me, but maybe there are other "takes" on this deal that could result in better incentives. Anybody willing to post comments on creative ways to maximize savings with this deal?

Other deals and Giant coupon matchups we spotted for the week of 06/26-07/02:

There's a brand new gas station @ the Giant in Fredericksburg (on Warrenton Rd).

I hope I am wrong about this, but when I signed up right now there was a link saying "View participating stores". There are only seven stores listed, all fairly far out in VA. :(

Hopefully it's not correct - I'll check tomorrow to see if I accrue any points.
