I'm always looking for ways to cut my grocery budget and I was excited to see how Meijer is joining the bandwagon to help me do so.
Meijer has started an ecoupon program called Mperks. You sign up, using your cell phone number and when you check out, you push the Mperks button at the register and enter your phone number. You can load coupons at meijer.com and these will automatically redeem, saving you money on your purchase. Right now they have a $2 off $5 purchase coupon you can load to your account. This is a lot like Kroger cards, but without the card. To sign up go to, https://www2.meijer.com/mperks/Welcome.aspx
You will need to be able to accept text messages on your cell phone as this is how the confirmation code is sent to you. The program also states they will send text messages regarding deals occasionally. I have been signed up for a week and have only received the confirmation text message, nothing further.
When I signed up last week, there was a $5 off $5 purchase that has since expired. However, I was able to get a great deal on their 10/$10 deal last week. This is what I got:
* Meijer spaghetti sauce
* 2 Totinos pizza rolls
* 2 Grands biscuits
* Ronzoni pasta
* 3 cans Hunts diced tomatoes
* 2 Warm Delights
The total was $11 before coupons and mperks coupon. I paid 20 cents out of pocket!
