How to Shop the Game On $5 Instant Savings Sale at Shaw’s

I use affiliate links in some of my posts. I may earn a commission if you use my links. Full disclosure.

Shaw’s has a new Game On Save $5 Instantly sale starting Friday, Feb 3 and running through Thursday, Feb 9.

This post is only to explain how to shop the sale.  I will have some coupon matchups for you either later tonight or tomorrow, so watch my blog for a new post later!

For this sale, you will get $5 off instantly when you buy any 10 of the participating items, mix and match (see items below). The discount will show on your receipt. You must buy all 10 items in one shopping trip. If you buy 20, you should get $5 off twice, buy 30 and get $5 off three times, and so on.

What I always suggest for these types of sales is that you buy only the sale items during your transaction, especially if you are new. You should figure out in advance exactly what your final total will be. It the total is not what you expected, do not be afraid to ask the cashier to help you find the mistake.

The best way to save during this sale is to buy the cheapest items that are participating and also use coupons to bring the price even lower.  This sale does not go by price, but by how many items you buy.

Let’s say you don’t have any coupons. If you were to buy only the cheapest item in the sale, which happens to be Prince pasta at $1.29 each, it would look like this: 10 x $1.29 = $12.90 minus the $5 instant savings = $7.90. That is a savings of $39%.

If you were to buy the most expensive item, the Gevalia coffee at $7.49 each, it would look like this: 10 x $7.49 = $74.90 minus the $5 instant savings = $69.90. That is a savings of only 6%. So, you can see that shopping for the least expensive items is the way to go.

If you do have coupons to match the items, you can use them to bring the price way down. Again, this sale does not require a minimum price purchase after coupons. You just need to buy 10 items.

Below is a scan of the new Shaw’s flyer. The scan is provided by We Use Coupons… one of my very favorite coupon sites!

The prices you see in yellow are the prices you end up paying if you buy 10 of the correct participating items. Always check the shelf tags to be sure you are picking up the correct size and variety. Items on the shelf get shifted! If you pick up even one wrong item, you will not get the $5 off. That’s why it’s a good idea to buy just 10 at a time if you are super new to couponing. You can do it!

If you want to start looking for coupons to go with these items, you can search on my COUPON DATABASE! It will show you available printable coupons and will also tell you which inserts to look in.
