Question of the day .... Brand Name vs. Store Brand??

April 11th, 2012 at 01:45 pm

What items do you guys ONLY buy store brand?
What items will you ONLY buy brand name?

Is there really a difference between them in your opinion?

Just curious to see what everyone's responses are.... Smile

In my house we buy ALMOST everything store brand, we've noticed that most things run about .50 to $1 cheaper... sometimes more... plus my mother works for a grocery store so if we go to that store I can use her employee discount to get another 10% off store brand items.

Free Stuff :)

I used to be the master of getting free or SUPER cheap stuff with coupons, and CVS extra care rewards or whatever its called. I should get back into that really, I've just been too lazy to get to the store and get newspapers on Sunday to clip coupons. I never bought insane amounts of stuff just because it was on sale, like I think it's silly to have 50 jars of peanut butter just because it was cheap... know what I mean? But I'd buy a few extra of things that I know that we would definitely use (ex: a few extra packs of toilet paper, an extra deodorant, one or two extra shampoos)... anyway, yes, I should start doing that again...

And while I'm talking about free stuff!!

New members to sneakpeeq.com can get a free gemstone ring... just did that one this morning! $10 credit for signing up and free shipping, I also got a "welcome gift" for signing up, which ended up being the ring... soooo now I still have a code for a $10 credit, and for making my first "purchase" I got a 5% discount code too (probably wont use it, but thought I'd mention it anyway)... so yea... YAY free things!

Something good to hang on to for a gift perhaps?
