Promotions may be attractive, be careful not to fall into the panel.
Some rules may allow you to have the right reflexes when you do your
1 – Beware of promotions
“1 bought = 1
free”, “-25%” or “Shock prices” are often displayed on supermarket
posters or in catalogs. These promotions attract consumers, who
sometimes forget to compare offers to see if they are really
interesting. Do not hesitate, therefore, to check the price per kilo, or
to take a look at the same products sold in other signs.
2 – Check the deadlines for consumption
just bought eggs, yogurt or milk at a low price? Have you thought about
checking the deadlines for consumption? Unless you are sure to consume
these products in the next few days, buying them could lead to waste.
3 – Take a look at the receipt
is not done systematically and yet, it often happens that a product is
counted twice, or that an “immediate reduction in cash”, is not taken
into account during your passage. Feel free to let them know to
correctly apply the offers and reduce your bill.
4 – Study the refund offers
are numerous in stores. For the purchase of a product, a part can be
refunded. But before being credited to your bank account, you must pay
the full amount and especially send many documents before a certain
date. You must take into account these elements before succumbing to the
offer of the moment.
5 – Attention to valid offers on a future purchase
promotions are only valid from a certain amount, for a later purchase.
So, the supermarket requires you to spend a week later to enjoy a good
discount. But if you did not have to shop on that day, you might spend
more than you need.
6 – XL formats not so economical?
families buy in quantity, and prices are often more interesting. But
not always, because it can happen that the purchase of two packages of
cereals is cheaper than a larger package. Once again, comparing the
price per kilo will allow you to choose the most economical product.
7 – Do not be tempted by the labels
are vying with imagination to attract their customers, even creating
attractive packaging with flashy colors or claims that do not always
match the container. “Recipe light”, “no added sugar”, etc. are not
always the best products for your health. They are sometimes even more
8 – Do not choose the first product
about comparing the prices of the foods you want to buy. And remember
that the products highlighted are often the ones that the sign puts on
for you to buy. Feel free to search, and look at other items, surely
9 – Stick to your shopping list
route taken to buy some products for the house and some fruits and
vegetables requires you to go through the sweets or appetizers section?
Not to mention the products on sale that often make children want to
eat, or adults to crack … In short, buy only what you need.
10 – Choose a smaller shopping cart
we shop at the supermarket, we tend to fill his shopping cart, even if
we have what we need at home. And when you see the size of the caddies,
as much to choose a smaller size.
