A Saturday with SaveAround
With a SaveAround coupon book, it’s easy to save a bunch of money while enjoying everyday activities.
Today we’re going to look at a day in the life of the Rodriguez family, a family of four. The family bought a SaveAround coupon book from the kids down the street who were fundraising for their school’s soccer team.
This weekend, they brought their coupon book along with them to spend a Saturday running errands and having fun in their hometown.
Breakfast at a Local Diner
Although they first bought the SaveAround book to support their neighbor’s soccer fundraiser, they were surprised to find one of their favorite diners in the book. They hadn’t been to it in some time.
Given that this diner is a bit of a hidden gem in their hometown, it’s not exactly well-known. And as a small Mom & Pop store, they’re certainly not advertising like a chain restaurant would. Yet, here they were in the SaveAround book, a fact that gave the Rodriguez family the perfect excuse to revisit it.
Sitting in a booth at the diner sipping coffee, Mr. Rodriguez read on his phone that SaveAround lists these small businesses in the book free of charge: free advertising in exchange for offering families like his discounts – a win for everyone involved.
His two young boys enjoyed their pancakes while his wife and him shared their egg omelettes. They tore the coupon out of their SaveAround book, and presented it with their credit card as they paid the bill. They saved $5 off of their total of $25, which is a 20% savings. Nice way to start the morning!
Next was one of their regular shopping destinations, their weekly trip for groceries. This store was part of a chain, so the Rodriguez family was pleasantly surprised to find offers for it.
They already spend a few hundred dollars a month between a couple of different grocery stores in the area, so having a coupon for this particular grocery store would not only save them money but made them a little more apt to shop at this store versus other stores.
This coupon was a little different – 10% off the checkout price – but it also was redeemed without a hitch just like it had been at the diner. Just by remembering their book, the Rodriguez family saved 10% off their grocery bill for the week, with no extra hassle or loopholes. Pretty neat!
An Afternoon At The Science Museum
With their chores out of the way, they had enough time to go to the Museum they had been meaning to go to for a while. Mrs. Rodriguez noticed that while the museum was not in the paper book, it did show up in the SaveAround app on her Smartphone.
So when it came time to pay, she presented her phone to the museum cashier, who verified the deal on the screen as they would any other coupon. The discount was immediately accepted, and the Rodriguez family was on their way to explore the museum.
After their time at the museum, the Rodriguez family discovered the map of businesses that offer discounts in the SaveAround app and found a coffee shop in the same building as the museum. With their phone already out, they presented the digital coupon and received a free scone with their coffee and tea. The savings just kept on coming.
A Car Wash on the Way Home
Driving home they saw a sign for a new car wash just opening up. The families’ two young boys were flipping through the book when they found that the car wash was open in other locations in the area, and their coupons were valid here, too.
So they tore out the paper coupon and passed it to the car wash attendant. He scanned the paper coupon and said they were eligible for a free upgrade from a Premium car wash to a Deluxe wash with a free waxing. Even though it was only $5, it was another pleasant surprise.
Impressed with how fast the car wash was and how nice their car looked, the Rodriguez family made a mental note to come here next time their car was dirty.
After a long day, the Rodriguez family headed home to cook dinner with the groceries they bought and play some board games together.
Over the course of a normal Saturday they were able to save a bunch of money doing normal, everyday activities.
