Oneflyer.ca compares prices across five different grocery retailers to save you money!
TORONTO, April 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Most savvy shoppers already know that the key to saving money at the grocery store is to know what's on sale and plan your menu around the weekly sales flyers. However, for many grocery shoppers the task of reading multiple grocery flyers, comparing sales and tracking prices is just too time-consuming and difficult. Thanks to a new comparison shopping website, oneflyer.ca, grocery shoppers in the GTA can now instantly compare over 600 weekly flyer deals (from Sobeys, Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, Metro and NoFrills) and build a cost-saving shopping list based on the lowest available weekly prices. Oneflyer.ca is the only service where shoppers can actually compare prices across the different grocery chains.
According to a recent survey by Synovate, more than 70 per cent of Canadians always or quite often check grocery flyers before shopping. Rather than spreading multiple flyers out on the kitchen table or browsing individual store flyers online, oneflyer.ca users can browse or search grocery products or brands across all five flyers, add grocery items to a personal shopping list and compare the lowest available store prices for free. The site also offers a premium user experience for $4.99 per month that automatically splits a user's shopping list between selected grocery stores, calculates the potential savings and prepares a custom shopping list for each store. Now, not only will shoppers show up at the grocery store with a detailed shopping list but they'll also have the power to take advantage of the lowest available prices to cut their weekly grocery bill.
"It's clear that checking grocery flyers every week is the norm for many Canadians, but many only read the front page or just their favorite store flyer while they're in the store shopping," said oneflyer.ca founder Gordon Hogg. "Once you're in the store it's too late. You need to compare all of the flyer promotions, know where the best deals are and be willing to shop the stores that offer the best value before you're in the store paying full price for items that are on-sale in another store. Simply splitting your shopping list between two stores is usually more than enough for our premium subscribers to save up to $50 per week or approximately $2,400 every year," said Hogg.
How does it work? Each week, oneflyer.ca filters approximately 50 combined flyer pages and more than 600 flyer deals ranking the best deals from the highest savings to the lowest savings. A social network of grocery shoppers then capture and match the regular store prices for many of the published flyer deals. Users simply browse the flyer deals, add items to their shopping list and a checkout feature displays each stores price for items on the users shopping list. Premium users can split their shopping list between grocery stores, calculate their savings and print or email a detailed shopping list for each store. Free users can select the store they want to shop at and print the corresponding shopping list.
How much money can you save? Every week oneflyer.ca publishes the Top 16 Best Deals on its public facing web page. For example, this week you could save $112.04 on just these 16 grocery items alone. "Oneflyer will show you what's on sale, where to buy it and what the best price is. Ultimately, users will decide how much they want to save based on what they're going to buy and where they're going to shop," said Hogg.
GTA shoppers can visit oneflyer.ca and start saving money immediately just by creating a new account. New users can take advantage of a 30-day free trial of its premium offering and should save enough money during the trial to pay for the premium service for a full year.
