Couponing at Whole Foods

By Hblack79

Good Morning sweet friends!

*Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post.  I had an awesome experience with Whole Foods & their coupons yesterday, I just wanted to share the information for those of you who say that Whole Foods is expensive, but want to still support a great company*

Yesterday, I kind of fell in love with coupons… more specifically, Whole Foods coupons.  I had a plan to do some grocery shopping on my lunch break yesterday.  I had picked up the Whole Foods coupon brochure about a week ago and saw a lot of great coupons.  Each of the coupons were things I would eat and enjoy.  When I arrived to Whole Foods, I had a plan in mind… find what I need, pull that coupon out when I retrieve it and keep moving.  Don’t spend too long searching for something and don’t get something if they don’t have the flavor or type I want so I don’t waste money.  An example: I had a coupon for granola & soup, but I couldn’t find a flavor I thought I’d enjoy, so I didn’t buy it.

When I started spotting some of my items… it quickly became clear that almost everything I had a coupon for was already on sale.  Love Instantly!

Receipt Breakdown: (The price is what I actually paid after the coupon)

Whole Foods Cereal – $2.99 ($1 off coupon)

Vegetable Broth – $1.49 ($2 off coupon)

Runa Drink – $.99 ($1 coupon)

Tofu Spinach Ravioli Frozen Meal – $3.99 ($1 coupon)

Blue Corn Tortilla Chips – $2.00 ($1 coupon)

Luna Bars – $.99 each ($1 coupon for 2)

Mojo Bar – $.99 ($.50 coupon)

I bought 2-3 more items that I did not have a coupon for, but overall I saved $8.50 in coupons and was extremely pleased with the items I brought home.

I know everyone’s argument is that Whole Foods is not the cheapest place to shop, but I love what Whole Foods stands for and that they support the community they work in, I’m willing to pay extra for that.  They also support local farms & businesses.  When you combine their sales & their coupons, I’d say it’s definitely worth your time & money to shop at Whole Foods and I either got my items for the same price or cheaper today with this simple strategy (Seriously, Cliff & Luna bars for .50 each)!  That doesn’t mean that I do all of my grocery shopping at Whole Foods, but I do what I can so I can support a company that I believe in and love.

I left Whole Foods with a huge smile on my face and the cashier commended me on my coupon usage!
