Disclosure: I received beauty products from Meijer to help promote the Meijer Beauty Department. All opinions expressed are my own.
So here’s the deal. I signed up for Meijer mPerks last year, tried to use it once in the store and then never used it again. I was really overwhelmed with all of the options and I tried to do it at the register which took too much time. So I decided that before I could go any further I needed to figure out how I could maximize mPerks for me and my lifestyle:
1. Make a shopping list and search for specific coupons based on your list. You can search by product or browse the weekly ad in the mPerks app by category. All you need to do is “clip” each coupon you might want to use. Don’t try to do this at the register. It will work much better if you think about this in advance.
2. Enter your mPerks number and PIN at checkout to use the coupons that you’ve clipped. Your mPerks app will save digital copies of your receipts and keep track of your spending at Meijer. mPerks will recommend coupons to you based on your receipts, so the more you use it, the more tailored to your needs it will be.
3. Click on the “Start Earning” button under “Earned Rewards. Once you’ve spent a certain amount in different departments like beauty or pharmacy, you’ll receive special rewards that you can “clip” and use during your next trip. You have four weeks to complete each reward.
For example, I need to get some supplements, like the Biotin and Vitamin E I take for my hair. This reward gives me $5 off my shopping trip after I spend $30 or more in supplements.
Now, here’s the exciting news. Meijer has launched the 2015 #MeijerSavingsSweepstakes where you have the chance to win $250 in mPerks coupons! All you have to do is take a picture of your savings dial and submit it here. The contest runs through June 20, 2015. For the first two weeks from May 24-June 6 you can enter by submitting your savings dial and then from June 7-20 you can share a picture of your favorite deal that week. You can enter once per day, but each photo needs to be a different picture.
Meijer will select four winners for each week of the contest. So if you haven’t signed up for mPerks yet, now is the time! With $250 at Meijer you could get a couple of fun beauty products, like the CurlSecret ($99.99) I mentioned in my previous post, Sally Hansen Salon Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit ($53.99) or the Crest 3D White Gentle Routine Whitestrips ($23.99).
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to start saving money on all of these beauty products!
