How To Shop At Vons

How to Shop at Vons and get the most out of your money.  I’ll show you a few key items you want to keep your eyes out for.  Not only will you save at the store but with Vons gas rewards, you can save at the gas station too!

How to Shop Vons

Vons recently announced how you can Shop at Vons and Save at the Pump with their gas rewards program and with today’s gas prices who wouldn’t want to save at the pump?

      How to Shop at Vons

By using your VonsClub Card you can earn points on the following:

  • For every dollar you spend on groceries you’ll earn 1 point.  
  • For every dollar spent on eligible gift cards, you’ll earn 2 points .  
  • For every dollar spent on pharmacy items, you’ll earn 1 point. 

For each point you earn once you reach the following accumulation, you’ll be able to save the following amounts at the pump:

  • Accumulate 100 points and get $0.10 off your next gallon
  • Accumulate 200 points and get $0.20 off your next gallon and so on. 
  • Accumulate 1000 points and get $1.00 off your next gallon

Not too shabby!  Plus if you don’t have a Vons gas station close by, you can redeem up to $0.20 off your closest Chevron or Texaco Station.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me show you how to save in the store so you can get the most from your money.

The first thing you want to do, is look over your Vons ad and check for any of the Clip or Click Coupons that are available.  You’ll also want to check online for U Digital Coupons.  You can load these coupons right to your VonsClub Card that way if you aren’t used to couponing you won’t forget your coupons.   Be sure to do this before you head to the store and give yourself about 20 minutes to make sure it gets loaded into the system.

While shopping the store, make sure you look for items marked clearance.  What I liked was that Von’s had signs around that really announced the items on clearance.  Meat on clearance is one of the ways I usually look for when I want to save on meat.

My eyes are magnets when I see signs that say 50-75% off.  I would have liked to have seen that final price on it, but after putting my brain in math mode I definitely grabbed some great deals on lunch meat and soap.  Ham for $1.50, with no coupon Wahoo!

How to Shop Vons

This was my overall purchase.  I also picked up an Amazon Gift Card just so I could get some extra gas points. I didn’t bring in any coupons with me and felt like I grabbed some really good deals.

Plus I earned  my fuel reward and I’ll be able to save $0.10 off each gallon of gas.  I think I may hold on to them and wait until I get 1000 points though.

Some tips if you are heading to Vons to take advantage of the fuel rewards.

1.)  Watch for promotions.  This weeks ad gave you $0.20 fuel reward with a $75.00 purchase.

2.)  Buy your gift cards at Vons.  Last week they had a promotion where you got 4x the points when purchasing a gift card.

These are just a few more extra ways to get the most of your money.  Stay up to date Follow Vons on Twitter @Vons_Pavilion  Hastag #FueledbyVons

World Water Day + PUR Giveaway

Did you know that today is World Water Day?  One of ways we save money is by limiting our budget on the amount of bottle water we purchase.  We try to purchase these only on special occasions, but not on everyday events.  We are fortunate that we can get clean water right from our faucet.  However there are millions of people in the world that cannot.

Pur Logo

Today March 22nd, 2013 marks the 20th annual World Water Day, a day that hopes to raise awareness that over 4,000 children in developing countries die every day from illness and disease related to unsafe drinking water.

In light of this day, I’d like to share some facts about water issues abroad and here in the US, and how PUR Water Filtration Systems are helping the cause:

What’s happening abroad?

·         783 million people in the world do not have access to clean, safe water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. 1.4 million children die every year as a result of diseases caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. This amounts to around 4,000 deaths a day or one every 20 seconds.

How can we help?

·         PUR products offer a simple way to help provide funding for clean drinking water to those who need it the most. Through an ongoing partnership with Procter & Gamble’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) program, PUR provides funding and resources to donate clean drinking water to children in the developing world.

·         Each purchase of PUR products supports this partnership with the CSDW program, by donating annual funding and resources to provide clean drinking water to these families abroad. You can also visit the PUR Facebook page and donate 10 liters of clean water to those in need with just one click through the Daily Drop program every day!

·         For additional program details, visit or

 But what about water here in the US?

·         While access to water and water quality abroad are of international concern, we can’t forget about the quality of the water our families drink everyday.

·         Tap and bottled water may look clean, but water takes a journey before reaching your home. According to research supported by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there may be as many as 16 million waterborne illnesses a year associated with drinking water.

·         Americans have the option of an at-home filtration system, such as PUR Water Filters, which are certified to remove more contaminants than any other leading brand. Using an at-home filter ensures you and your family are drinking clean, crisp-tasting water.

Enter now to win a 18 Cup Pur Water Dispenser and help people all over the world get the clean water they need!

PUR Water Filtration System Review and Giveaway

PUR Water Filtration System

PUR Water Filtration System

I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and I drink tap water… Did you just cringe when you heard me say that?

Yes it’s true.  Why?! Because bottled water is expensive!  Now I won’t lie, it took some getting used to.  I would leave it in my fridge, just to reduce the hard water taste and after time, I barely notice it.  But when friends and family come over, the thought of drinking tap water isn’t so appealing to them.

So when I received an offer to try out the PUR Water Filtration System, I jumped at this opportunity.  I would now have something on hand for those non tap water lovers.

I never wanted to spend my money on one of these products.  I really thought that they wouldn’t make a difference.  Boy was I wrong.  I instantly noticed a difference.  I guess if you go from bottled water to PUR Water Filtration System you wouldn’t really recognize the difference, since you are already drinking filtered water.  But go from drinking tap water to filtered water and BAM!  You notice a difference.  Plus, don’t just consider this for your kitchen sink.  You can hook it up to your bathroom sink too.  This worked wonderfully for those nighttime — I’m thirsty rituals.

Here are some other interesting facts may interest you about:

PUR Water Filtration System

  • Eco-Friendly PUR pays for Itself: You can save up to $1000 per year by switching to PUR water filters from bottled water!  Aside from the annual savings, PUR also helps the planet by reducing some of the 38 billion plastic water bottles that are discarded in the U.S. every year.
  • Improved Health: The EPA and CDC estimates that there are up to 16 million waterborne illnesses per year associated with drinking water. The PUR Advanced faucet water filter reduces 99.9% of microbial cysts, 99% of lead and trace levels of pharmaceuticals, and 97% of chlorine (odor and taste).

You all know that I love saving money and I’m super excited about this product.  I’m actually considering these as gifts for my family and friends.   I love gifts that keep on giving and this is one of them, that I know they’ll be able to use each day and save them money throughout the year.  Who wouldn’t want that?!

And… exciting news.. I get to give one away for one lucky reader.  One reader will win the following:
