The news of the completed purchase of all Sweet Bay stores (72) in Florida by Bi-Lo or Winn Dixie holdings has expanded the validation of the Winn Dixie coupon by more stores than you could have imagined. As the war rages on for more control of the supermarket share in Florida and the use of coupons expands to other stores who accept competitor’s coupons in their very own stores, has increased two fold. Now Sweet Bay coupons are good in Winn Dixie stores, and Winn Dixie coupons are good at the Sweet Bay stores. Supermarkets alike accept the competition’s coupons, and that makes good business sense. As more and more coupons are being used by consumers nation-wide.
This trend is something that has consumers saving money in all fields of shopping not just supermarkets. But since we are referring to groceries we will keep it to products that are sold by supermarkets. Supermarkets like Winn Dixie, Sweet Bay, Publix, BJ’s wholesale, Costco, Walmart and more all now accept the competition’s coupons. So if you are shopping based on specials that specific grocery stores have, and you are not utilizing the competition’s coupons, you are throwing away good hard earned money. That is the way to truly save money at the register.
Sweet Bay has been struggling in Tampa, and other parts of Florida to grab a good chunk of business from it’s competitor’s and thus the buy-out from Winn Dixie. There are several large supermarket chains in Florida and Winn Dixie is one of the largest. The Sweet Bay buy-out included some 72 stores thus strengthening the Winn Dixie grip on the share of the supermarket chains in Florida. Leaving Publix as the other main competition. Winn Dixie coupons come bi-monthly to my home and they are usually good for a month in advance. Using Winn Dixie coupons is going to reduce the amount of money that you will pay for your grocery bill by an average of $5.00 for every $50.00. Use your coupons wisely. Be a smart shopper, shop Winn Dixie for greater savings, and now Sweet Bay too.
