With a bit of careful planning you can shop for groceries online and save money on your food purchases without the added costs of shipping impacting your discounts. Below are a series of tips on maximizing your online grocery shopping dollars to save big. Some tips are basic while others a bit more involved. If you have any questions or need clarification on a point, please feel free to ask questions below.
Buy in Bulk
When you shop online, you will typically save the most money by buying items in bulk. Even Amazon.com offers you the best savings when you buy a quantity of items. For example, a box of my favorite casual tea, Constant Comment, costs at least $3.00 in my local grocery store, but I can buy a pack of 6 boxes on Amazon for $12.75 or approximately $2.12 per box for a total savings of $2.25. In other words, I’m grabbing a free box. Now, if I was only a casual tea drinker, this deal wouldn’t be worth it as it would take me so long to consume the tea that my savings would be diluted. Luckily, this is a good savings for me because we go through tea fast, just like we do many other products such as our favorite cereals and supplements.
