WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Sometimes the best deals aren't even offered by the stores but in partnerships with the makers of the products. This happens from time-to-time with drug stores and grocery stores.
Every now and then there will be a deal from one of those companies, and if you play your cards right, you could save big. For example, just a few weeks ago, I received a prepaid $10 Visa in the mail just for buying a certain amount of Procter and Gamble products at the grocery store. I had to buy $30 worth of P&G products, but I could also use my coupons to bring down the total. At the end of the trip, I was out-of-pocked only about $12. What a great deal!
The best advice I can give – check the website of the grocery store or pharmacy. It also doesn't hurt to check one of your favorite coupon blogger's site. Chances are they'll post it if there's a good deal.
It's a great surprise to get a prepaid Visa in the mail weeks later. Just about the time you forget about it, you've got some extra lunch money.
