HIP Whole Foods Savings Tips
Check out your local Whole Foods Facebook Page
You’ll find information about One Only Day Sales, Children’s Events, special coupons, giveaways and more!
Grab the Whole Deal Coupon Booklet
When you walk into Whole Foods, be sure to grab The Whole Deal Coupon Booklet located at the front of the store by the shopping carts. This booklet is filled with store coupons (many have no size restrictions) that can be stacked with manufacturer’s coupon and store sales for some big savings! Note that you can also view the booklet and print the coupons online here.
Bring the Kids
That’s right! This is one of my favorite places to shop with my kiddos! Most Whole Foods locations offer a complimentary Kid’s Club that provides FREE snacks to your kids – like popcorn, bananas, oranges, bottled water and more! And, ask your local store if they have a hidden stuffed animal in the store – if they do and your kiddos spot the animal, they will get a special treat! 🙂
Focus on the Center (And ask for Samples!)
Keep your eyes peeled on the items in the center aisles (especially in the Produce Section) and Endcaps as they tend to offer the largest savings. And if you want to try before you buy, just ask and they will be happy to give you a sample.
Buy in Bulk
Check out the Bulk Section if you are planning to purchase dried goods like beans, rice, flour and more. Purchase 15 pounds or more and you’ll get a 10% off bulk discount.
The More Wine, The Better
Purchase 6 or more wines (including wines on sale!) and get an extra 10% off your wine purchase.
Make Friends with the Butcher
Did you know that the butcher at Whole Foods will cut up a whole chicken, make hamburger patties, cube a chicken breast, etc all for FREE! I love this!
Get to Know 365 Everyday Value
Whole Foods has their own store brand of products called 365 Everyday Value. They carry everything from juice to frozen pizza to mayonnaise. Even better, you’ll find store coupons in The Whole Deal Coupon Booklet to help you save even more!
Read the Whole Foods Coupon Policy
Yes, Whole Foods does have a Global Coupon Policy! I recommend that you print the policy and then keep it with you when you shop in case you run into any issues at checkout. Note that the policy clearly states that a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon can be combined on one item AND case discounts can be combined with coupons. Awesome! 🙂
Join the Vitamin Club
Join the Vitamin Club (may not be available at all stores) and get a FREE 365 Everyday Value Brand supplement for every ten 365 Everyday Value Brand supplements that you purchase.
Purchase a case of an item and get an automatic 10% off at checkout. Click here for more information.
Don’t Forget the Reusable Bags
Use a reusable bag at checkout and get 10¢ off your purchase or you can opt to donate 10¢ to your local school.
Be Organized at Checkout
To help the checkout process go smoothly, place each store coupon and manufacturer’s coupon next to each applicable item (instead of handing the cashier a huge stack of coupons at the very end).
