Shopping Nanny

June 22, 2010

I don’t exactly know how I feel about this company yet, but I thought I would share it with our Bite of the Best readers and see what you think! I can’t think of anyone that’s not interested in saving time and money, so I thought that I’d at least bring this new service to your attention. While everyone wants to save money at the grocery store, clipping coupons can be a real hassle. Sometimes I think that the time I might spend combing the grocery mailers for deals is just not worth the 50 cents I’ll save from the fruits of my labor. It can be a truly daunting, thankless task!Shopping Nanny

Well, now a brand new website apparently wants to do all of that for you, Shopping Nanny. The service claims that they’ll do the research and ‘clipping’ for you, and all virtually, automatically putting
the savings on your grocery loyalty card (or allowing users to print coupons directly at home.)

Shopping Nanny will match coupons, savers and deals to your individual shopping list and habits. The site ‘guarantees’ a $500 per year savings on your grocery bills. Start out by giving over some basic information about where you generally shop and what you like to buy, and Shopping Nanny will plan, search and sort all the available deals and coupons on your behalf.

Shopping Nanny is an expert at “combination shopping”, finding opportunities to combine sales, coupons, special offers and store specials to often double, triple or even quadruple your savings. Sometimes, you can even get products for free!

Here’s how Shopping Nanny works:

- Tell them your favorite stores, then enter any loyalty cards you have for those stores.
Shopping Nanny will ‘deposit’ electronic coupons on your loyalty card so you don’t have to carry them around.
- Start shopping for grocery deals right away or add more info to your profile.
- Print out your shopping list (or have it sent to your phone) and go to the store.
- Swipe your loyalty card to use the electronic coupons, or present your print coupons, and get ready to save!

The service does cost, $5.95 per month; but can $72 really save you $500? If so, might be worth a try. Currently available in California and Arizona, but apparently rolling out nationwide soon.

Happy Saving!

    I have been using the site for only 2 months, and have doubled my savings for our HUGE household. I absolutely LOVE Shopping Nanny. She really is the extra set of hands any and every busy mom needs. In the last two trips to the grocery store alone, I have saved over $78 in coupons and combined store deals alone (that doesn’t even include doubling some of the offers). Once I even walked out of the grocery store with over $30 in groceries and they paid me $0.64. Can’t beat that. The more you use it, the more you will wonder how you ever saved without it, and realize that you just can’t go back to the old-fashion way for couponing. Now I have time for more important things!

    Thanks so much Shopping Nanny!

    Without exception, Shopping Nanny has been worth every penny spent. It IS an investment, not an expense in our household. Yes, I am a guy and I am not shy to say, “I love Shopping Nanny” and “Yes, I do coupon”. Couponing and saving money has been a necessity for our family.

    [8:52:37 AM] Juliana Christensen: Shopping Nanny’s claim to save time and money, is not just a claim, it’s a reality. They really do deliver when it comes to saving time and money. I used to be a bare-minimum saver, clipping here and there…now I have become extremely proficient in learning the art of saving AND have actually made money doing it at times. It’s fun and the entire family loves to see how cheap we can get our groceries for. Not only that, the time it used to take me to clip coupons and scour the inserts for deals has been cut to over a half.

    As a Shopping Nanny subscriber, I can testify to savings of both TIME and MONEY. Not only does Shopping Nanny save me the pain of dredging up the best deals and coupons and matching them up to my favorite store, but I don’t have to EVER look at another clunky grocery store ad in a newspaper for the things I need. I build my shopping list online and Shopping Nanny searches for the best deals at my favorite stores. My average savings range from $45-98 a week. When I get to the store, I am armed with my Shopping Nanny list for the week and I know I am leveraging every single dollar in my grocery budget. All I can say is THANK YOU, SHOPPING NANNY!

    I am a Shopping Nanny member and LOVE it! I save on average $4-$17 per trip to the grocery store, depending upon my needs and size of my shopping list. It is well worth EVERY penny. It takes me literally 15 minutes from logging on to printing off. It beats clipping coupons and spending my Sundays flipping through inserts.

    Thank you so much Shopping Nanny!!!

    I am new to Shopping Nanny. I was skeptical, however, with the Shopping Nanny guarantee I thought, “what is there to lose”?

    Well I have used SN for over a month and have saved already half of what they guarantee! I save on average $5-$25 per shopping order (depending on the size). Not only that, SN has re-trained my way of shopping. I now coordinate meals according to what is on sale. With flexibility like that, it gets me the maximum amount of savings while buying in bulk and stocking up on my food storage! Gotta love that.

    Thank you so much Shopping Nanny!!! I absolutely LOVE your website. With very little effort, I am able to save time and money…
