10 Secrets You Don’t Know About ShopRite Grocery Store
It is no secret that we all like to grocery shop at ShopRite. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have landed on this article.
In fact (and in my opinion) they offer very competitive prices and their sale prices are unbeatable. ShopRite is the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the U.S. In fact, it is one of their secrets to success.
I thought you would want to know how this local ShopRite store makes shopping an easy and fun experience.
Here are the 10 secrets that you do not know about ShopRite.
ShopRite is an American retailers’ cooperative of supermarkets with stores in six states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
The Number “7” on Sale Items Means More
Let’s start by breaking down the numbers! It all boils down to more savings. And really, who doesn’t want more?
I do need to start with an example first. I am sure you have spotted or now will be keeping your eyes peeled for sale items ending with the number “7”.
For example; let’s take a look at England’s Best Eggs, 18 pk on sale for $1.97. Items ending in “7” are a store-specific manager’s special sale price.
These manager specials will undoubtedly be unadvertised deals. There are many possible reasons as to why they are markdown grocery items.
These store-specific sales depend on a variety of things, such as overstock of an item, expiration dates, or new product packaging.
Either way, keep your eyes peeled. You never know what deals you will find while out shopping.
Did you know you can “stack” a paper manufacturer coupon with a ShopRite Store coupon?
Stacking is the combination or the use of two different types of coupons to get more savings.
Can we stack coupons at ShopRite? Yes. ShopRite Super Coupons may be used in conjunction with either the higher-value paper or digital manufacturer coupon.
Typically, stacking occurs between a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon.
ShopRite’s online digital eCoupons are manufacturer coupons. I
n turn, the stacking of two manufacture coupons is prohibited by the terms & conditions stated on those coupons.
You will not be able to combine a ShopRite digital eCoupon with a paper manufacturer coupon.
In the past, you were able to stack a paper manufacture coupon with a ShopRite digital eCoupon. That is no longer the case.

All eCoupons that are promoted in weekly store flyers do have an unlimited amount of saves
Most eCoupons have a set limit of saves. For instance, they only provide some to the first 5000 customers who “clip” that specific eCoupon.
However, if the eCoupon is listed in their weekly ad flyer, there is no set save limit and everyone can save the coupon and not have a problem.
They may limit the number of items purchased. Each eCoupon will state how many items can be purchased and combined with that specific coupon.
Please note that this was not the case with their last “BIG Brand” promotion. In fact, with all the ShopRite advertised ecoupons their website crashed, and many were not able to save all ecoupons. This is not typical.
You can load an Unlimited Number of ShopRite Digital eCoupon to your Price Plus Loyalty card.
Did you know that you are not limited to the number of ecoupons you can save to your Price Plus card?
Long ago, they use to limited us to the amount of eCoupon we could save on our account. That number was 175. Which is a lot of coupons.
Quick Coupon Tip!!
It is easiest just to clip all available coupons first thing on Sunday morning when they are released.
Wink Wink, make sure you are doing that. The higher value and more popular coupons do reach a print limit fast.
Please do understand that Digital eCoupons do not double. They are accepted at face value only.
ShopRite serves more than 6 million customers via more than 250 ShopRite locations.
Earn Money By Watching Videos
Turn Your Downtime Into Dollars. (Currently Unavailable and pulled from ShopRite’s Website)
Downtime Dollars is an interactive experience that rewards you for watching and engaging with advertising from your favorite brands. That is it!
ShopRite will show you a few short videos followed by some survey questions about what you just watched. Once you complete each one, you will earn a few cents.
Typically, each video is between 10 – 25 cents each. I have seen a few that are worth more, but rare.
Once you have reached $1, you can add that credit to your Price Plus Card.
Learn more about this system here.
ShopRite is the only store in our area that truly utilizes the marketing tool called “Loss Leaders”.
You can read and watch this short video on what loss leaders are.
All I can say is TAKE ADVANTAGE of these deals. Each week you can find “Loss Leaders” on the first page of the ShopRite store flyer.
Purchase those loss leaders, buy the maximum allotted limit, stock up, and save BIG!
There is an APP for that! – Download ShopRite’s App
ShopRite offers a nice app that makes it easier to save you time and money. This is my favorite ways to save money.
The site navigation makes it easier to get where you want to go, browse sale and coupon categories with a swipe, and view recipe information on one screen.
It is helpful when making a recipe from your phone!
ShopRite offers a diversified range of foods
Asian, Latino, Organic, Kosher, Polish, Halal, Bangladeshi… Did you know they offer their own line of deli meats, cheeses, and complements under a premium private label called Black Bear of the Black Forest?
All Black Bear meats and cheeses are free of gluten and MSG and are part of the NSRI – the National Salt Reduction Initiative.
ShopRite is the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the U.S.
It comprises almost 50 individually owned and operated affiliates with, in a recent count, over 296 stores.
Most promotions are company-wide, but there are many others that are not. If you live in the Capital District, NY, you may be well accustomed to triple coupons and substitutions of items on sale when the shelf is empty.
But if you live in Northern Jersey, your store will provide you with a FREE product if the store tag price rings up at the register incorrectly, or use your reusable bags and get a $0.05 off per bag used.
Nonetheless, it is important to get familiar with your local ShopRite store.
Did you know that Wakefern Co-op created and operates the franchise for PriceRite Stores?
Know that when you are shopping at either ShopRite or PriceRite (your local grocery store) they are both being operated by Wakefern.
As a result, PriceRite stores are not found within the same region as ShopRite stores out of respect for each other’s businesses.
You can feed your family for under $100 per week at ShopRite
Finally, I am living proof. In fact, I spend $125 or less to feed my family of 4 each week by shopping at ShopRite.
By utilizing their sales (including loss leader purchases), and meal planning, I can feed my family with healthy and natural foods. They make it so easy and everyone can save. Plus, each year you can get a free turkey for Thanksgiving and Easter.
You don’t have to be an extreme couponer to lock in on savings. You just need to be smart about your shopping experience.
