GOOD DEEDS
I sure can’t wait for Santa to come this year. I’ve been a good boy minus a few minor overblown incidents, but enough I think to make it on Santa’s good list. Just to be sure I decided to do some good deeds. I figured Santa gave bonus credits to absolve any naughty deeds, so I thought I’d cobble some good deeds together to help overlook any bad that Santa caught me doing.

My first good deed was having a free haircut day. I put a stand at the end of my driveway and waited for customers. I couldn’t find any scissors so I used some hedge clippers I found in the garage. The blades were worn so it would pretty much bend the hair and not really cut it. That was until I yanked on it and a gob of hair that came out. The customers didn’t seem to like that so I gave them some lollipops I found in the back of a storage cabinet. I’m not sure they were lollipops though since they were chewy and not crunchy. Nonetheless, they were free. Beggars can’t be choosers.

My next good act was to pay the parking fine of meters that were about to expire. I made sure I got ahead of the meter maid before he could write a ticket. I eventually ran out of quarters so I had to improvise. At first I asked the meter maid all kinds of questions about the city and their life to stall him. What’s your favorite color? What’s the name of your cat? Did you ever milk a cow? About how much do you weigh? How come I never see any evidence of squirrel scat?

The meter maid caught onto my game and scolded me before trying to bolt by me. No worries. While I was asking questions I tied his shoes to a meter. Plus a little duct tape with 50 written on it over the meters kept him from seeing how much time was really left on the other meters.

My next good deed was different. I felt bad for hotels and restaurants that get low ratings online. I asked them to give me their best room and service and make their best food for free and I would give them high ratings. I didn’t want to be dishonest about it and just write bogus reviews with high ratings, so I figured they would be ok with giving me stuff for free in exchange for better ratings that will get them tons more business. After all, every .1 increment in ratings helps.

Afterwards, I went to the mall since I know that is where Santa is at and that is where he gets the skinny on what people want for Christmas. I waited an hour to sit on his lap as the line was long. By then I was so nervous that sweat was just pouring out of every orifice of my body. I had a visible wide ring of wetness around the armpit of my t-shirt. No matter as I was about to let Santa know all the good I’ve done so that I got what I wanted for Christmas. Who needs Black Friday when I can just tell Santa what I want and he brings it to me on Christmas.

I told Santa I wanted a bike, a llama, a poster of a cat with the saying hang in there, and dice. Not a whole lot because I didn’t want to sound greedy, but that is what I really really wanted. I spent the next 45 minutes telling Santa all the aforementioned good deeds. He was impressed. Either that or he was passed out. I couldn’t tell which.

Before I left I sang Take on Me by A-ha to Santa to show him I meant business as everyone knows singing a song shows heartfelt conviction. The mall must have been closing because they helped walk me out of the mall after that.

So wish me luck. On Christmas Eve I’ll be waiting for Santa and wide awake as a chipmunk after it drinks a 2 liter of Mountain Dew. I’ll have some Archway cookies and Squirt pop ready for him. I’m sure he’ll be sick of milk so Squirt will be a welcome reprieve that may also get me bonus presents. Always thinking of all the angles…

VOLLEYBALL PLAYOFFS
This summer we won the championship after many years of coming up empty. We were in the playoffs again for the indoor fall session. We won the first round. In the finals we had to play a team we haven’t beat all year. We won the first game. The next game they got too far ahead and we couldn’t catch up. So it was down to game 3. We were down 20-17 and they needed to score one more point to win. A quick timeout to tell the team we played great this year win or lose and off we went to try for a miracle. We scored one then another. Before you know it we’re tied. They scored and then they need one more to win again. Then we score for a score of 22-21. We need one more to win. They set the guy that I have to block. He’s a good spiker. I’m no Kareem Abdul Jabbar, but I have hops. I jump as high as I can to block his spike, he crushes it …out of bounds! We win the championship! It felt great since we haven’t won this league in years too. The team we played has won almost every session these past few years. Time to plan a championship parade.

WAL-MART VS GIANT EAGLE
Have you seen the ads in the newspapers? You know the ones with Wal-Mart saying they have lower prices than Giant Eagle. They’ve been in the PD for awhile now. Giant Eagle got into the battle by putting ads in the PD showing how their prices are cheaper than Wal-Mart. So who really is cheaper?

Each has published ads showing them around 10 – 20 some percent cheaper than the other. But if I randomly choose 20 items would I get the same results? Of course not. Each item is cherry-picked to favor them. When you sell thousands if items it’s not that hard to do. And just like any data – data can be used to favor either position (a cup half empty or half full if you will).

What’s my take? I’ve shopped Giant Eagle for years and years. When they started doubling coupons I made them my go-to grocery store. But they have such high prices! At least that is what I hear all the time. It depends. If you buy items that aren’t on sale along with items that are then you will save around 10-20%. If you use coupons and cherry-pick the deals like I do then you can achieve savings of 70% and more consistently.

But Wal-Mart has everyday low prices! And that’s the catch. The prices at Wal-Mart are consistent while Giant Eagle has items that go on sale. Wal-Mart, in essence, doesn’t have sales. They advertise everyday low prices. Giant Eagle recently did something similar by locking in prices and at lower prices than normal at that.

Giant Eagle doubles coupons of 99 cents and less seven days a week, 24 hours a day. It is done automatically by their system at the register (except for coupons that start with a 9 and coupons that state ‘do not double’. Because of double coupons and sales at Giant Eagle I save 70% and more. If they didn’t have double coupons, then I would save a lot less. I wait for an item to be 50% off and then I use a coupon with it. Typically, a coupon is 10-20% off an item. When it doubles it is 20-40% off and that is how I can get my savings of 70% of and more.

Wal-Mart did test doubles in Madison, Ohio that ended last year. They also did stores in other markets. Should they start doubling at all their stores then game on!

Now the one thing that Wal-Mart does that is different is that they give overage on their coupons. So say I have a $3 coupon for Snuggle fabric softener and it’s on sale for $2.50. Most stores will mark the coupon down to $2.50. Wal-Mart doesn’t. They give overage. So, in other words I would get a 50 cent credit by using the coupon. I did that with a handful of coupons and I was able to get paid for shopping at Wa-Mart to a tune of a $4.62 credit. They paid me! Now that is rare and you can only do it on a small handful of items since most coupons are less than the cost of the item. Buying a variety of groceries using that method is not consistent since most coupons are much less than the cost of an item.

Wal-Mart also price matches. Just tell them the cost of an item you found at another store and they will price match it. A lotta hassle since sometimes they ask that you provide and ad and if you have a dozen items you want to match it takes a lot longer in line. But if you want to save more money it is a good option.

So in the end who has lower prices? If you ask me, I would say Giant Eagle. Before you spin in circles like Shemp from the 3 Stooges in disbelief you have to look at the big picture. Wal-Mart is good for the person that is just looking to get a low reasonable price without having to wait for a sale. Same goes for similar stores like Marcs. But to save a ton on groceries on a consistent basis then Giant Eagle is the winner.

Plus as a bonus you get Fuelperks for your purchases. You get $3 in saving on gas with every $50 spent (30 gallons x .10 = $3). That number doubles when you buy gift cards during their 20 cent promotions. Plus sometimes they give 20 cents in Fuelperks or more when you buy certain products at certain quantities.

But again, Wal-Mart still doesn’t lower prices with weekly sales. So in order to compare apples to apples I’d compare Giant Eagle’s sale prices to Wal-Mart’s low prices, but knowing that buying regular-priced items will not be as competitive than Wal-Mart’s prices. In the ads you can see how both stores claim they have the lower prices. Because everyday prices fluctuate and Giant Eagle has sales that claim needs an asterisk.

Part of the issue with shoppers is that many don’t want to wait for a sale. They just want to buy what they need. To that I say do you really need to buy any particular type of food that week or can it wait until it goes on sale? Everything goes on sale every 6 weeks for the most part. To save the most make dinners according to what is on sale that week instead of pre-planning dinners and buying the ingredients to whatever is on sale or not. The waiting for a sale method can get you savings of 50% and more weekly while the ‘buy what you want when you want it’ method will usually save you around 10 – 20% each week.

Stocking up until the next sale will let you bypass having to buy items at full price too.

If convenience is more important to you, then saving money may be more difficult. Wholesale clubs are a good example. They offer everyday low prices too, but most don’t take coupons – Costco and Sam’s Club doesn’t while BJ’s does. Plus they charge you to shop there! Their item sizes are huge too. I like my mayonnaise in smaller containers than 90 oz. They sell in bulk which means there is a higher change of throwing out food because it gets spoiled. But they have everything you need there at a decent quality. But I don’t know anyone saving 70% and more at Wholesale Clubs on a consistent basis like I can do at Giant Eagle.

Another method is to cherry pick deals at other stores. If you could save $20 on your produce would you make an extra stop at Aldi’s? If it takes an hour to get there and shop then it’s like making $20 an hour on your job. It may not be convenient to shop at more than one grocery store, but it can save you tons over time. Their produce it great and a ton cheaper than any store including Wal-Mart. The family that owns Aldi’s even owns Trader Joe’s!

Does it matter to you how the store treats their employees? Or where they source their product. Or how healthy their products are? The case can be made to shop at Costco, Whole Foods, and Giant Eagle since they pay most of their employees a living wage with benefits. Do you see the same cashiers at the store you shop at? Or is there a new face every other week? Some stores are fine with hiring kids and having a high turnover. The kids get work experience and the store pays them an entry-level wage so it’s a win-win. However, some stores like Wal-Mart have lost a handful of class-action lawsuits brought against them by employees. Even though Wal-Mart makes billions of dollars in profits and the largest retailer in the world, many of their employees are on government assistance. Not a good combination. Check out the info at http://makingchangeatwalmart.org/. Sure, everyone loves low prices and Wal-Mart has helped lower prices, but at what cost?

Are stores that emphasize service more important? Say, like a store like Heinens. It’s important to me when I need something and it isn’t on the shelf and the stock person is very helpful finding a case of it in the stockroom. Or having a cashier that knows what they’re doing at the register.

With service and convenience it’s hard to quantify savings. It’s the overall experience. For those not needing to pinch their pennies then those two categories make a difference.

With Giant Eagle locking in prices you can see the ads made them have to be more competitive. So competition is good for the consumer. One day we may see more competition from other grocery stores if they move into town – Kroger, Safeway, etc. It’ll harken back to the days of Fazio’s, Pick-n-Pay, Kresge’s, Woolworth’s, and Stop-n-Shop. I’ll be waiting with my coupons!


Less Than Perfect Credit?

FREE SHIPPING DAY
Knowing that shoppers wait until the last minute to do their shopping, retailers offer Free Shipping on Free Shipping Day to entice them to do their shopping with them before they procrastinate any longer. This year Free Shipping Day is December 17, 2012. The cost for shipping varies, but you can figure on saving at least $7. The savings is better than having to run out to the store and use a gallon of gas.

Check for sites that offer free shipping like http://www.freeshipping.org.

Some stores like Ace Hardware, Wal-Mart and Payless Shoe Source allow you to order an item online with free shipping if you pick up the item at their store. Check to see if that is an option when you’re ordering an item since it can possibly save a lot in shipping costs if the store is close to you.

Amazon offers a free shipping service called Amazon Prime for an annual fee of $79. The service guarantees delivery within two days. As a comparison, shipping is free on purchases of more than $25 with Amazon.

A service called ShopRunner at http://www.shoprunner.com consisting of dozens of retailers offers free shipping for an annual fee of $79. It was partly formed to compete against Amazon Prime. Both offer a free 30 day trial.
