Did you know that September is National Coupon Month? This hopefully means some great high-value coupons from manufacturers & stores all month long. We are also teaming up with Savings.com & Valpak for some fun events planned to celebrate “Save-tember”.
Grocery Budget Makeover Contest:
Starting even before September has started, Savings is kicking things off with a Grocery Budget Makeover Contest. You will have the opportunity to submit a video sharing about why you need a grocery budget makeover! All you need to do is be a fan of the Savings Nation Facebook page & follow the instructions to submit your video. The videos will be voted on & the ten with the most votes will become finalists. A Savings Nation panel of experts will choose 3 of the top 10 videos to receive a personal grocery shopping trip with a Savings Nation Ambassador (which could be Sia & I if you live in the NW). You will also receive a gift card valued between $100 – $200.
