You all know how I love my Big Y deals so I wanted to be sure to let you know that the Big Y Gold Coin program will be ending on January 31, 2019. No coin redemption will be allowed after that date so be sure to redeem your coins by the end of this month. Dig through your wallet, check in the car seats, and don't forget to look in the couch cushions for any forgotten coins!
A lot of folks are disappointed that this program is ending; however, I'm encouraged by other discount programs Big Y has offered instead. The weekly MyBigY offers that are available through the Big Y app are stellar deals. It's super easy to download the app -- you can find instructions here. The app links the offers right to your Silver Savings Card so you don't have to remember to bring any coins to the store. AND you can even load digital manufacturer's coupons onto your Silver Savings card through the app saving you the frustration of realizing you left your paper coupons at home. When you create and use a Big Y digital account there are no excuses not to save!
Also, looking at the Big Y circular this week, I feel like they are trying to soften the blow of retiring this savings program by offering some straight up grocery deals that don't require any coins or coupons:
Chips Ahoy! Cookies $1.77
Chobani singles $.88
Smart Ones frozen entrees $1.66
Dunkin or Starbucks bagged coffee $5.99
Cheerios or other select General Mills cereals 4/$10 (must by 4)
You will need to have a Silver Savings card to get these deals. So if you haven't gotten one yet, just stop by the customer service desk at any Big Y location or sign up here.
In other Big Y related news, the company will also be phasing out single-use grocery bags at ALL of their store locations by 2020. So while you won't need to remember to bring your gold coins to the store, you will need to BYOBag starting next year (although it's always the right time to remember to use a reusable shopping bag). #mybigy
