How to save money while shopping for grocery online
Have you ever wondered how to save money while shopping for groceries online? Now you may think that online grocery shopping is time-consuming, diﬃcult and expensive, but it is actually quite the opposite. It saves you time, is easy-to-use, and with all the promotions and coupons, it can end up even cheaper than going to the physical store for your groceries.
Here are some tips to save both time and money while shopping for your groceries online:
1. Check for Deals
As what you would do at a physical store, check the website for their latest deals. Don’t be surprised, for you may find some really awesome deals there that you might not even find in the supermarket.

2. Purchase Frozen meat over Fresh meat
It is a common perception that fresh meat is healthier than frozen meat. However, did you know that the nutritional value of both meats are the same, and sometimes, frozen meat can be even more nutritious? That is because, frozen meat is flash frozen within hours after it leaves the slaughterhouse, and because the meat is still fresh during the time of freezing, it is able to retain its nutritional values. Frozen meat can also be stored in the refrigerator for much longer periods than fresh meat.
Frozen meat tends to be cheaper than fresh meat because it is easier to store and transport the meat, resulting in a lower logistics cost. So don’t be afraid to purchase frozen meat!

3. Look into a delivery plan
Instead of paying delivery fees for every order made, it would be cheaper to have an annual grocery delivery plan, if you know you will be purchasing online groceries for quite a while. In the end, it may be cheaper than going to the store physically as you will not need to spend on personal travel expenses. You would also be saving your energy from going up and down the supermarket, trying to find something and what is worse than that, realising it is out of stock by the time you arrive at the shelf.

4. Combine and place your order with a neighbour
If delivery pass is not something you are keen in getting, you can consider sharing the items and delivery fee with your neighbours. As you are already aware, most products are much cheaper if you buy them in bulk. Consider buying from the same grocer with a neighbour and split the bill! Everyone needs food and groceries afterall! When you do this, you are saving not just 1, but 2 people’s time and energy! Grocery-shopping is a (weekly) repeating task – imagine how much time, energy and money you can save.
5. Subscribe to Newsletters and receive updates through social media platforms
One great way to get exclusive deals or first-hand news about promotions and offers would be to subscribe to your grocer’s newsletters. To reward loyal customers, online grocers normally inform their existing customer of any limited-time offers or exclusive deals. They may also blast our interesting information about their new products on their social media like Facebook or Instagram.
