Where should you shop this week for the best buys on your grocery list? To get the answer, you could read that pile of supermarket fliers that come in the mail or with your newspaper, or keep tabs on commercials.
A better way to save time and money: Let grocery-comparison websites do the work for you.
One of the most useful is MyGroceryDeals.com, a free site that does more than just post supermarket fliers. After registering, you can compare local prices—by product, category or store—in most, if not all, supermarkets in your area. Each week, the site covers more than 750 weekly fliers from 250 grocery retailers in more than 55,000 ZIP codes. You’ll also find coupons that can be printed and clipped, as well as nutritional information on many products.
Another free site is GroceryGuide.com. A subscription service, TheGroceryGame offers a four-week free trial.
