With more and more stores across Canada offering to match the price of competitors’ sale prices, the opportunity to save on groceries and other purchases has affected the way many of us shop. On the plus side, we’re saving money, sometimes on an extreme scale, and on the down side, the experience at the check-out counter can be a source of frustration for those waiting behind the savvy shopper who is stumbling through flyers to save on their purchase.

We’ll now there’s a FLIPP side – increased savings and decreased time at the checkout counter. If you haven’t discovered Flipp yet, you’re in for a treat!

Flipp saves time and money – it’s FREE, it’s easy, it has rocked the price-matching world!

Flipp is an iOs and Android compatible app that lets you view store flyers, search for the lowest advertised price for an item, and clip all of your best sales onto a shopping list. Instead of lugging paper flyers along to show the best price for an item at the cashier, simply flash your mobile device or smart phone at the cashier and say “I’d like to price-match this item to this flyer”. It’s a price-match revolution!

I price-match my entire grocery list each week. Here’s some of the fresh produce I’ve clipped and added to my Flipp shopping list this week:

By price-matching the lowest price on fresh produce using the Flipp app, Christa Clips saves $10-$20 on groceries each week. That adds up to over $1000 a year!

  • Grapes – best price $1.49/lb
  • Apples – best price $2.49 for a 3lb bag
  • Watermelon – best price $2.47 each
  • Cucumbers – best price $.50 each
  • Cauliflower – best price $1.77 each
  • Broccoli – best price $1 each
  • Asparagus – best price $2.97/lb
  • Green Peppers – best price $.79/lb
  • Carrots – best price $2.50 for a 10lb bag
  • Romaine Lettuce- best price $.69 each

By price-matching with Flipp, our family saves $10-$20 on our fresh produce ALONE each week which adds up to over $1,000 in savings per year. A thousand dollars!  So imagine the savings to be found on higher priced personal items like toilet paper, cleaning supplies, diapers, and razors – they’re always on sale, somewhere!  And when it comes to shopping around for major purchase like appliances, electronics, and furniture – remember that if an item is listed in a flyer, Flipp will help you find out where it’s on sale for the best price this week.

No more settling for “that seems like a good deal.”  Flipp has changed the price-matching game so that we are confident that we’re paying the lowest possible price each week!

My favourite part of using Flipp is that I can price-match these best prices at my local Walmart and enjoy all of these savings in a one-stop-shop. I place my groceries on the belt in the same order that they appear in my clippings list on Flipp, and then I scroll through and flash my phone at the cashier for each price adjustment. It’s SO fast! I dare say that most customers behind me are oblivious to the fact that I’m price-matching at all!

Saving on weekly groceries continues to play a role in my Save-at-Home-Mom strategy, and I’m so pleased to have found an app to help me save time as well as money! Join me by trying Flipp …

Happy Saving!
