I read an article a while ago that estimated food prices will increase by up to 3.5% in 2019. Whoa. That works out to about $411 more per family this year, and bad news for those of us on a budget. People gotta eat though, so there are only so many options for saving money on your food budget.
To start with, we can scale back or stop eating out entirely. I’m sure I could stand to cook at home a little more, but honestly having the occasional night off from cooking helps keep me sane. Strict meal planning can also help cut your grocery bills by reducing food waste, but the third (and easiest!) way is to shop smarter and spend less on groceries to begin with.
That’s where the reebee app can help!
reebee is a super easy way to collect all the grocery store flyers in your area in one convenient place so you can compare prices and get the best deals. You can either look through individual flyers or search for specific items on your shopping list to instantly comparison shop. On average, reebee users save over $3900 per year on groceries using the latest flyers and price matching on reebee. Nice!
Everything is localized so you only see flyers for the stores you’ll actually shop at. You can either enter your postal code manually or let your phone’s GPS do it for you so your flyers move with you.
And it’s not just groceries. You can browse flyers by category – grocery, electronics, home, children, etc. – or search for specific stores. On my app, I can see all the nearby grocery stores plus my other favourite stores in the area like Best Buy, London Drugs, Canadian Tire, Rona, and IKEA.
Not only will reebee help you save your hard-earned money, you’ll save time too. If you’ve been flipping through flyers looking for deals, using this free app to price match can save an average of 36 minutes per week. That’s like an extra day per year! With all that time to spare you could spend more time with the kids or, you know, maybe even take a nap! (Ha ha, yeah right.)
The app is intuitive and simple to use. You can either browse flyers or look for individual items. Search for any item, browse all the listings, and tap the plus sign to add your preferred deal to your shopping list. Everything on your list is organized by store, and I love that each listing shows when the price expires. reebee makes it really easy to plan my shopping for the week.
One more thing I like is how online flyers reduce waste. Like a lot of families, we cancelled our local newspaper a few years ago. We rarely read it, and I didn’t like wasting all that newsprint, but I missed browsing through the flyers, especially for groceries and Boxing Day sales. With reebee, I can price match and create my shopping list in-app, all at the same time and paper-free. When I walk into Costco or Canadian Tire, there’s no need to grab a flyer at the door. It’s already on my phone!
Whether you like to kick back on Saturday morning and price match all your weekend shopping online on your computer or tablet, or you prefer comparison shopping on the go on your phone, reebee can help.
