Ever wondered if that item you’re about to buy is included on the sale price? There’s an easy way to tell! Sometimes – especially during a busy season or a great sale – items can be misplaced on the shelf or its just a big ol jumbled mess.
At just about EVERY retailer, the shelf sticker will reflect the UPC number found on the back of the package itself. This comes in very handy in the large island freezers where the tags aren’t always lined up with the product. Just make sure that the numbers match and you are good to go! There have been many times this trick has saved me time AND money at checkout!
Note that this trick will not work when matching coupons to items – that is not how coupons are intended to be used. Coupons have different bar codes than UPCs. To make sure the coupon will apply to said product, you’ll need to read the wording on the coupon itself, do not necessarily go off of the picture.
