One thing we do here at Penny Pinchin’ Mom is share the TOP deals you can find at HyVee every week. We let you know the best discounts and the top deals you can score – with or without coupons. The idea is to help you know the best deals to watch for before you get to the store.
As much as we love to do that, there is no way for us to always cover everything. It is just impossible. One simple way to ensure you always save as much as you can. I’m thrilled that I was able to partner with HyVee to share one of their newest ways to help save YOU money — HyVee Deals!
I’ve been trying this app for a while now. And honestly, there is not just one thing I like about it. Let me share with you my TOP THREE reasons why this app helps my family and I save money.
NUMBER THREE: I am really good about making a menu plan and shopping list. That is honestly one of my best tips for saving money when I pick up groceries. However, there are also times when I know that I need to stock up on items when they are on sale.
Recently, I was in my local HyVee to grab a couple of items. When I was walking through the parking lot, I remembered that something I needed had been on sale. The thing was, I couldn’t remember if it was this week or last week. I was in a hurry and did not want to have to walk to the back of the store to look – just in case it was no longer sale priced.
I was able to easily pull up HyVee Deals on my phone and found the deal right there. As it turns out – I was right! It WAS still on sale and I was able to hustle back and grab it before I headed to checkout. I stocked up and was able to get a great deal on something I knew I needed!
NUMBER TWO: We all know that there aren’t coupons for fuel. We just have to pay the price at the pump – no matter what it says. However, if you shop at HyVee, you know that is NOT the case anymore!
HyVee has a program called Fuel Saver + Perks. The way it works is really simple. You first get your free card in the store. You shop as usual, but you will want to watch for items which have fuel perks attached to them. As you buy these items, you build up savings on your card.
Then, fill up at your local HyVee, Casey’s or participating Shell or PDQ locations. You’ll swipe your card before you begin and the price per gallon instantly drops!
The trick is knowing which items have the reward attached to them for each week. Rather than wait for the paper to arrive or have to walk around the store, I can pull up the app and scan this week’s items. I look for the things I KNOW I need and pick them up – -and instantly build up fuel savings.
NUMBER ONE: Honestly, the thing I am loving most about HyVee Deals is the key word search feature. I LOVE that one! I can make up my list and then use that to find the items which are on sale — based upon what it is I need.
The old way of finding a deal was to look through all of the pages of the weekly ad, whether in print or online. Now, you can type in what it is you need and it will find ALL of the deals associate with that single word.
Here is how it looks. I typed in the word cereal. It came back and told me that there were 19 deals for cereal that week.
Even better was that when I found the items on sale, it even told me the NUMBER of varieties included in the sale!
In the image above, you can see there are 16 varieties of HyVee brand cereal on sale. When I clicked on the link, I was able to scroll was able to scroll through the list to see which were included and add those individual items to my shopping list.
No wondering if the one you need is included in the sale or not. They tell you up front. Seriously – this is the best thing about this app.
