Compare Local Grocery Prices

The Grocery Guide collects and compiles sales data from major U.S. grocery stores. This data is made available through their user-friendly website which anyone can use to compare local store sale prices. Using the GroceryGuide.com tool is extremely easy, quick and convenient. Just type in your zip code, wait a few moments for the information to load and then select from stores in your area in order to obtain the latest sale prices.

The GroceryGuide.com tool as presented below was originally installed by a previous editor at Home Finance who did a superb job! Much thanks!

The Grocery Guide tool has several noteworthy features:

• You can change your selection at any time in terms of zip code or store.

• Shows the sale price of the item, cost calculated in terms of unit and the ending date of the sale.

• You can either print your price list or send to it your cell phone.

• Easy to understand star ratings system for sales. If you need more information about the rating, you can click on the stars and review the explanation in the pop-up window.

If you have not yet done so, you may also want to visit the GroceryGuide.com website to check out the latest news and features. The GroceryGuide.com website is well-organized and provides a plethora of information including a blog, recipes and coupons. For shoppers who use a price book, the price tracking feature of the Grocery Guide is extremely helpful. The Grocery Guide stores up to 19 years worth of price data. The price charts are a really interesting feature of GroceryGuide.com. Click on “Details” to bring up the price chart for the product. It may also display matching sales recipes.

To retrieve recipes which are matched to store sales in your area, click on “cheap & easy recipes” link and type in your zip code. You can alter the selection of recipes by choosing another store from the list displayed in the drop-down box or search for a recipe by keyword, if you prefer. You can also search for recipes by category such as “beef” or “chicken & poultry.” If you do not make a selection, it will just display recipes from every category. The recipes are also ranked in terms of ease of preparation. This recipe feature provides an extra-added convenience in terms of menu planning. Cooking by a staple ingredient is extremely economical and can save time as well. One point worth mentioning is that the tool on the GroceryGuide.com website is slightly different than the one that was previously installed on this page. You can try both.

One may also establish an account with GroceryGuide.com by providing an email and a password. You will also be able to receive email sales alerts. Be certain to review their policy regarding privacy and terms of use.
