Why can't I find the flyer deals from the physical flyers on the website?
Some grocery retailers have more than one version of a grocery flyer, the flyer information on this site will only include the flyer information for the locations listed here.
I'm trying to find flyer deals through Option 1, but very few or no matches are displayed.
This website only contains information about FLYER deals, the deals that are advertised by grocery retailers through their flyers. The number of groceries advertised on these flyers will vary from week to week. So the groceries that you are looking for may or may not be on sale that week. To browse through the current week's flyer deals, use Option 2.
I'm finding flyer deals through Option 1, but I don't understand what the colours represent.
Each grocery that you've inputted is coloured coded to help you identify similar groceries found. So, if you've searched for "eggs, coke", all the groceries found with the word "eggs" in it will be coded with one colour so that you can visually identify all the egg products. Currently, only the first 21 groceries that you've entered will be coloured due to the limited number of distinct colours to choose from.
I'm finding flyer deals through Option 2, but I don't understand what the colours represent.
Each grocery that you've selected is coloured coded to help you identify similar groceries found. Displaying similar groceries will allow you to determine grocery is the bang for the buck. The price of the cheapest grocery in a category is also coloured, the cheapest price is determined by calculating the unit price of the grocery. Currently, only the first 21 groceryies that you've entered will be coloured due to the limited number of distinct colours to choose from.
I'm on the print grocery list page, but I don't know what to do.
The grocery list is organized by grocery stores and is formatted in a printer-friendly fashion. All the groceries have been defaulted with a quantity of 1, you can change the quantities to what you desire.
I want to print my grocery list but without all the extra buttons and fields on the screen.
Once you click on the "Print Grocery List" button, all the extra buttons and fields on the screen will disappear and will not show up in your printed grocery list.
I forgot to add some groceries to my printable grocery list, how can I add more groceries.
