You can load PG&E coupons to your Dillons card from PG&E website again (they stopped for awhile). Also, if you picked up that baby savings coupn book (it was mentioned a couble weeks ago) I believe there was a Huggies Walgreens coupon. might be able to stack?

Fantastic! I was just wondering about that the other day. Thanks!

Cai 6 years, 10 months ago

so, i'm missing something. How are we gettin stains out for free like the headline says when its $2?

SuperJenn 6 years, 10 months ago

The coupon is Buy One Get One FREE. I was estimating the cost of the "Buy" bag at $2. It's more likely around $0.99 after paper and eCoupons. So, you get two bags at that price as one of them is FREE with the coupon.

Happy Shopping!

I guess my mind is in the gutter this morning. Am I the only one who thought the headline was funny?

I'd like to see you review Checkers new curbside shopping service. They have signs up all over their store promoting it and it looks like an awesome deal.

You go to Ziles.net and can view the store's inventory of items, shop, check out and pull up to Checkers where the employees will bring your bagged groceries out to your car.

Best of all: the service is FREE!

What do you say, try it out and do a review here? I think this is a great way to be able to stay on top of the sales since you can see all of their items and prices online before going to the store. You can even use coupons with this service.

Here's the link to the service: http://www.ziles.net

That looks interesting but how do you use coupons on there?

thadrosen 6 years, 10 months ago

From Ziles.net:

Do you accept coupons with online orders? Valid manufacturer coupons are accepted. Simply enter the coupon codes at the prompt during checkout. The coupon value may not be reflected in your estimated total, but it will be included when your order is shopped at the store. You will be required to present the coupons when you pick up your order.

Katara 6 years, 10 months ago

So what happens if the coupon value is not included when the order is shopped at the store? Do you take it up with Ziles.net or with Checkers?

And by coupon codes, which numbers on the coupon do you mean? There is a difference between an online coupon (which is usually referred to as a coupon code) and the numbers listed under the bar code on a paper coupon.

I am a bit troubled by this verbiage, "Online and In-Store pricing may change between the time of your order and the time of pick-up. You will be charged the price of the item at the time your shopper scans your item at the store."

Basically, if the in-store price drops, you are out of luck. It is nice that they will honor the online price if it is the lower though.

It could be a valuable service for someone who has difficulty with mobility or for a caretaker.

thadrosen 6 years, 10 months ago

All I know is you place the order, a Checkers employee goes out and grabs your items and has a cashier ring them up.

The order is saved and when you come pick it up, it is retrieved and you pay.

Not sure of the logistics for couponing.

Ziles is just the mechanism for getting your order to Checkers. The employees at Checkers still do your personal shopping, bagging, etc.

I know Hyvee offers a similiar service with a fee.

I think it's great Checkers can do this for free. Will be especially valuable on days when weather is bad. Just shop online during the day at work, stop by on the way home without getting out of the car and going in to the store.

Katara 6 years, 10 months ago

Oh I think it is a good idea. It provides a good service for those who aren't as mobile as others and it could be convenient too.

I am bit concerned about this Ziles.net. Perhaps it is new? I plugged several zip codes & Checkers seems to be the absolute only store in the entire region to use this. There are no stores in Topeka or Kansas City that use this website for their services.

Katara 6 years, 10 months ago

There seems to be no history on ziles.net. If Checkers is the testing ground for this website, that's fine. It would be a good idea for Checkers to disclose that though.

The site's FAQs indicate that they currently don't charge for this service but I am thinking once they get the payment mechanisms in (and in their FAQs they indicate that they are working on taking payments), there will be the standard convenience fees.

I have to say it is very helpful for comparison shopping but I am not sure that is always in Checkers favor. Maybe if you factor in the time saved, it would come out on the positive side.

Katara 6 years, 10 months ago

It is also a bit disappointing that the coupons are not included in your estimated total. If you plug in the coupon, it should be reflected in the amount so you know exactly how much you are spending.

If you use a lot of coupons, it can be a big difference in price. And then when you get to the store to pick up your groceries, to find out that the total is off because ziles.net did not include it, would be a hassle to sort out something that should have been very simple to begin with.

Yes, Checkers can probably re-scan the coupon (I don't see why they wouldn't) but it turns something that should be convenient into something that is a PITA.

I hope it works. It is a good idea that could be very useful to some.

thadrosen 6 years, 10 months ago

You can call the store once they finish ringing up your order to get an exact total. I give them credit for trying this, even if there will be some kinks.

SuperJenn 6 years, 10 months ago

I will give it a whirl a few times (in small orders, most likely) and see how it goes...then I'll write it up! I'm with thadrosen... I give them credit for trying to set up an easy to use system that benefits everyone.

thadrosen 6 years, 10 months ago

Cool! Yeah, I can imagine if you're hard core couponing it, it might get a little confusing. Looks like you have to enter each coupon's UPC code if you want to use them, then the cashier will manually type them in when ringing up your order.

But I can see this working for those who are at work, realize they need something from the store, placing their order and picking it up on the way home.\

Anxious to see your review, Jenn!

SuperJenn 6 years, 10 months ago

I will do this! I don't shop at Checkers generally. As I've stated before, it isn't near where I live and I don't have the time to chase deals at each and every store like I used to...not with the kids in tow! I didn't know that their service was free OR that you could still use coupons; and Checkers IS on my route to preschool. While I don't have enough time to shop there in those time frames, I could certainly benefit from doing a pick up. I will absolutely check it out. I'm actually already turning some ideas in my head.

Please forgive me, however, if it is a while until a review gets done because we will be moving across town in two weeks and not only am I doing very little shopping, but I have very little attention for anything but those pretty brown boxes filling up my garage!

thadrosen 6 years, 10 months ago

Also, if anything, you could use Ziles to see what the current prices are on the Checkers inventory. Would come in handy when comparing sales, coupons, etc.

Those supposed free Wii accessories you wrote about awhile back that were free plus shipping and handling ($9.95?) can be bought at Dollar General for $1 for each accessory.

SuperJenn 6 years, 10 months ago

Unfortunately, if you are referring to the deal I posted on November 20 for the Wii Accessories Grand Slam Kit ... that was 5 accessories and shipping was $2.98.... still a little bit better of a deal..... but great job keeping your eyes out for a good price!

I went to Target's sporting goods department. Asked to see a 30-30 Winchester. "We don't sell firearms", he said. Okay, how about some dove and quail loads in 12ga? "We don't sell ammunition" he says.Well how about some bullseye targets? Guess what. Target doesn't sell targets either. Maybe they should rename the store. "Fluffy" comes to mind . . .
