Savings Cards

We're continuing our Road to Savings with our second stop.

Step 2 in saving money:

Sign Up For Club Cards

You should always sign up for your store's savings cards. Whether it is Vons, Ralph's, Albertsons, CVS, or wherever; if your store offers a club card, sign up for it! This step is crucial to saving money. Aside from getting special discounted prices you can also load electronic coupons to most club cards which you can use in conjunction with paper coupons to get extra savings! You can easily request a card at your store either at customer service or during checkout. Or you can sign up online at the store's website. The only problem with this is that you need to wait for the card to get sent in the mail which can take up to 3 weeks whereas requesting one in-store allows you to start saving right away.

Here are the online links to request club cards:

Vons - fill out and print application and take to the store

Albertsons - Request Online

CVS - Request Online

Ralph's - you need to request in-store.

Homework assignment: Request club cards or print applications to take with you the next time you go to the store.
