    I am jealous of the produce there! The ones near me just have the usual food stuff, freezers with boxed meat etc but nothing fresh except the dairy/bacon type stuff

    Make sure you check your personalized coupons. Unlike PC Plus, I do usually get them for stuff I use. Last time I spent $87 inc taxes on a 20x day and $55 back in points (on a bonus redemption day) using only 1x $3 manu coupon and most of my personalized coupons. If you match 20x products (that you will actually use) it doesn't take long to save up those points.

    I usually begin by redeeming for 4 x toilet paper, 4 x milk, and 4 x eggs. That pretty much fills up one cart. I try and park it near the electronics section, flag an employee to let them know it's mine, and hope another employee doesn't re-shelve the products while I'm busy filling up another cart.

    Then checking out is another ordeal. Stores are extra busy on bonus redemption days but yet the number of cashiers remain the same. So here I am with two shopping carts, putting items on the counter for the cashier to scan then.... where do I put items? Back in the same cart with items still need to be paid? I bring my own recyclable bags but does the cashier help me pack them? Of course not. I've actually had one cashier tell me to "Hurry up". Biting my tongue, I sweetly replied, "Unless I can suddenly grow some extra arms, this is as fast as I can go".

    I know the obvious solution is to bring someone with me to help. I've tried, but the experience isn't much better. I need to be alone so can stay organized with my list, running total, coupons, etc.

    One thing that has changed is what I fill my second cart with. Even though the prices are grossly inflated, I am so happy with the expanded grocery sections in some stores. I can get steaks, pork chops, chicken, sushi, exotic cheeses, fresh berries, etc.

    That is so awesome! Their teeny carts are the worst! But I do always have very helpful cashiers when packing groceries. Wish we had meat and produce. That would be great!

    We have one like that nearby, I like that I can pick up fresh cheeses, sausage and stuff at Christmas time. I usually hold onto my points until Christmas, and pick up things like stocking stuffers, lots of toilet paper and paper towels, cleaning supplies, and then things for guests, like boxes of chocolate, etc.

    I save most of my points for Christmas time and redeem mostly for video games and other electronics. I redeemed for the Canon Rebel last summer and really like it....although I am not a serious photographer. Other than electronics....food and gifts are where my points go. Every redemption is different...just depends on what I need 

    I didn't even notice til you pointed it out
    But they wouldn't be able to weigh it so i guess the bundles are set at $2.49 even if its 3lbs its quite pricey but thats the price you pay for convenience

    I ended up getting the camera at $299. I used a emailed 20X the points on the difference (which should be 25800 points) and got a $20 gas card too. That works well for me.

    I also redeemed $85 of groceries in another trip to a larger store. Prices were surprisingly reasonable on cookies, cereal, almond milk, juice, etc.
