Here’s a novel way to save money on groceries. Type your grocery list into GroceryServer.com, then watch as it matches sales and coupons to your items. To use the site enter your zip code – full registration is not required. A search near me returned more grocery stores than I realized existed in my town! I submitted this list, which I plan to buy later today:
The site found 10 stores with items on my list that were on sale, plus one coupon. It broke down my list into categories of items, then showed me which supermarket had the best prices for each item. It even had a date when the sale price was going to end! I can uncheck stores I’m not interested in, and save my grocery list. GroceryServer currently works with 200 grocery flyers from stores across the country and covers all 55,000 zip codes, according to the FAQ page. You can print coupons directly from the site, though that requires you to install a bit of software and to connect with the site through Facebook.
Ok, now for the downsides. I couldn’t specify which brand I wanted to buy, and returning only one coupon is measly. Seriously, there are no other coupons available? To fully use the site, you must connect via Facebook. Bummer there is no option to register directly with GroceryServer.
The site was founded in August 2010 and is based in Michigan. To read more about GroceryServer.com, see their FAqs page. The site makes a little bit of money each time you print out a coupon and is working with brands for additional revenue.
