First Shopper's Food Warehouse Run - 70% Saved!

(Click above to see larger.)

Ohhhh it was a good trip to Shopper's Food Warehouse this morning. I actually got brave and did my first run using the Shopper's self checkout. I've been comfortable using the Giant one, but each self-checkout system is quirky in its own way, so I'd been hesitant to clog the self-checkouts at Shopper's with tons of coupons. This morning, though, the clogging was at the service checkouts, so I decided to go for it! I'd say it was a good experience. A few pointers:
  • If you have any coupons whose tripled total is more than the value of the product, save those 'till last - because like me, you will probably need to ask the self-checkout monitor to process those himself/herself. In my case, I had 6 of these, so it wasn't a big deal. However, if you have a TON of coupons for freebies (with overage?), you might be better off going through the service checkout.

  • Go s-l-o-w-l-y when scanning coupons, and after you've scanned the coupon, be sure to wait until the machine's done gabbing through its, "50 cents savings, 50 cents savings, 50 cents savings," tripled coupon spiel before you put the coupon in the coupon receptacle slot. Be very slow and deliberate about putting your coupon in - you are most likely to register with the machine as having submitted the coupon this way.

Great job ladies! I went to Harris Teeter today for triples and hope to get to Shoppers this weekend too. Have we confirmed that triples will be at all locations?
