I had a fabulous time at the Tom Thumb Just for U event. I had the chance to meet several other fun Dallas area bloggers. Most were coupon or deal bloggers who know how to have fun.
Just for U APP
The “Just for U” savings program can be accessed on the computer or download the app to your phone. Once signed in, Tom Thumb already has coupons and deals loaded “Just for U.” How awesome is that? Items are there waiting to be loaded onto your card and coupons can be added to increase the savings on the card.
First let’s walk through the app to explain how this app can help you save more without clipping. Here is the first screen once logged into the app:
The first button is pretty self explanatory. This will show the Weekly Ad for the store where most of your purchases are made.
Next is the Coupon Center where coupons can be loaded directly onto your card by selecting the “Add to My Card” red button. Super easy no clipping, just savings. Select items you would normally purchase in the Coupon Center. There are no longer a ton of different sites to visit to load coupons to the card. Just a one stop shop. Very easy and convenient. Yeah I really like this option! Tom Thumb did a great job with this idea.
Here is the really awesome feature Tom Thumb has included in the app, the second button is Personalized Deals. This is where certain items are given to you, the shopper, at a higher discount than the advertised sale in the store. Also this deal will last longer than the advertised deal. Most store sales run about week in length. Your Personalized Deal may be valid for an entire month and can be used unlimited amount of times during that month. WOW! That is pretty much all I can say when I heard that. I hate the fact that in order to get the best deals, I may have to go to the store 2 or 3 times that week. I just don’t have time for all that running around. Who does?
Now you have gone through and selected personalized deals and coupons you are ready to go to the store. You don’t have to make a separate grocery list. Once you have added an item to your card, the button becomes a gold color and says “Add to My List” as seen below. Click this button to add to your grocery shopping list.
When this is selected it will be added to “My List” as shown below. When you are shopping you can select My list for your shopping list and shop from there. Now let’s say your husband has remembered you need to pick something up from the store. He can add this to the list as you are shopping. This saves on Text Messaging or calling. I think this is just an awesome feature for a grocery store app to have.
Once an item from your list is in your cart, selected the check mark to indicate this item has been purchased. Once check out is complete, click Clear Checks to remove these items from you list.
Now go out to the web site or download the app to start your savings right now! Your deals may not be the same as my deals, but we both can save on things we purchase the most. Let me know what you think of this app. Stay tuned tomorrow for deal scenarios and rules to stacking and the best methods to save to use this app.
