Kenmore Couponista Challenge
The people at Kenmore Craftsman Brand were very gracious and extended an invite to The Local Tourist to experience the Kenmore Couponista Challenge at their studios in Chicago this past Tuesday. They really know how to put on an event. The grand prize was a Kenmore 33 cubic foot refrigerator! That baby fits everything (as was demonstrated by the audience). Audience members also received Sears gift cards.
The event was very informative as the Couponistas shared tips and tidbits with the audience on how to save money and shop wisely. While coupons were an underlying theme, they also discussed:
1. Coming to the store prepared with a list.
2. Grouping items by category when shopping.
3. Buying store brands when your favorite brands aren’t on sale or offering coupons.
4. Loyalty programs.
6. Using smartphone apps for coupons and online specials.
Panelists also shared facts about storing food items. Did you know you shouldn’t keep your milk in the refrigerator door or store you bread in the refrigerator? Who knew? Guess where my bread is located right this very moment.
Kenmore Couponistas prefer the Shop Your Way program that allows you to save at Sears, Kmart, and Lands End every time you make a purchase. Robert Gurlach, Division V.P. of Shop Your Way, was on hand to explain just how the program works. Simply put, you earn points which turn into dollars good toward your next purchase whenever you shop at participating stores! This program allows you to save on virtually everything you could ever need from clothes to groceries to tools to electronics. You can even save money on gas! This month there's a promotion for up to 30 cents per gallon off!
Kenmore Brand also offers Cookmore, a free recipe sharing website help plan meals and make shopping even easier.
Many thanks to Kenmore Brand for inviting us to their Couponista Challenge. We loved seeing their spacious 33 cubic foot refrigerators and learning about money-saving shopping tips!.
