Ten Tips for Shopping a Fry’s Mega Sale Event

 Fry's Mega Sale Tips

This Wednesday marks the 1st day of a 2-week Fry’s Mega Sale. Because many of you may be new to shopping at Fry’s during this special time, we are reposting these 10 tips to make your shopping trip easier.

A Mega sale is always a great time to stock up on pantry items – for many of us, it’s our time to replenish a low stockpile. You should always think about getting enough items to stockpile until the next big mega sale, or an 8-12 week period. 

A Mega Sale can be extremely overwhelming if it’s your first time shopping; fortunately there are several ways to make your trip go a little easier.

1.  Understand the Pricing.  A Mega Sale requires you to buy in sets – 3, 5, 6, or 10.  This week, our sale is “Buy 5, Save $5″ – so you will need to buy in sets of 5. Counting is essential!  If it’s your first time shopping a Mega, a smaller trip works better than a larger.

2.  Avoid any Distractions. Shopping a Mega Sale is incredibly challenging … therefore, try to avoid anything that could be a distraction. For some, that might mean shopping without your spouse, and for others that may mean leaving the smaller children at home.  If bringing any combination of our children results in hitting or fighting, it might just be easier to ask Dad (or Mom) to watch 1, 2, or all as you shop.

3.  Use a Shopping List.  If you haven’t signed up for the FREE App “Favado”, it can be a very helpful way to put your list together.

  • You can make your list on the computer, and sync it to your phone.
  • You can make your list on the computer and send the list “by email” – print the coupons you need to clip & go.
  • OR You can merely put together the list on your phone and set up the app to display the final price in efforts to find everything $1 or less.

4.  Have Coupons for Extra Items.  Popular items will run out of stock fairly quickly – in efforts to help you finish out your sets of 5, bring extra coupons for items you can quickly substitute. OR bring a few extra items up to the register just in case you are short a few items.

5.  Have a Plan to Stay Organized. Some people prefer to “paper clip” groups if 5 items to keep count. Some prefer to bring reusable bags – fill up with 5 items and place in your cart (and start a new bag for the next “set” of 5). And some prefer to make tally marks on their list. A counting mechanism will ensure you don’t spend extra time at the register trying to count as you load items on the scanning belt.

6.  Get Rain Checks for Advertised Items that are Out of Stock.  Not many Mega Sale items will be advertised; but if you spot an item that is out of stock, that Rain Check will be essential so you can grab the deal later on. 

7.  Final Count before Checkout.  After you are done selecting all your items, find a special place in the store that you can pull over and gather your coupons and make a final count of your items. For some, it’s easiest near the pharmacy; for others, in the seasonal aisle (which is usually a lesser traveled area).

8.  Understand your Receipt.  Mega Sale items will always scan with a “+” Next to the item on your receipt.  You can simply “count” those “+” items to determine if you are on target or if you are short items. Sometimes the cashier will offer to count them for you – though that may depend on how busy they are at the time.  Review your receipt before you leave the store.

9.  Mistakes Can be Adjusted. Did you count incorrectly?  Did you get home and realize you are one or two items short of the “Mega 5″ required? If so…… you can take that receipt back and get it adjusted at Customer Service. Simply buy one or two extra items and they will adjust your total to reflect your Mega Savings.

10. Be a Considerate Couponer.  Everyone wants to get a great deal, but think about others as well. Only pickup what you can reasonably use, and leave some stock on the shelf for others. Don’t have a meltdown if your coupons won’t scan, and show some respect for the cashiers.  The store employees work incredibly hard to keep items tagged and in stock, and cashiers check out hundreds of people each day – don’t take out your frustration on them if something is out of stock or your coupons aren’t scanning correctly. Not everyone may understand the inner-workings of coupons as much as you do.
