Ever wanted to really get a head start on your grocery planning?
Long-term readers may have noticed that while HEB releases new weekly ads on Wednesday mornings, I always have the deals posted on Monday here on Hunting Bargains at HEB!
And no, it isn't because HEB loves me so much that they give me a sneak peek each week that nobody else receives.
In fact, you can learn how to track down HEB deals in advance too -- and for the first time, I'm going to share my technique with my readers!
Bonus: It's much easier to do than you'd probably think -- in fact, I discovered this tip by complete accident.
First things first: You need to go over and sign up for a free HEB account.
I always recommend this anyway, since you can't activate the HEB mobile app without registering for an account.
But in addition to snagging all the HEB digital coupons, you'll also be signed up to receive weekly emails of your store's ads directly to your inbox!
Once you register for your account, you'll begin receiving your weekly ad email sometime on Tuesday mornings.
Save that email -- don't delete it!
The following Monday morning, when you go in and read that email, you'll actually see TWO ads -- the current ad that is running through Tuesday night, plus the upcoming ad that launches on Wednesday morning!
All you have to do is open the email and look for the View Full Ad button:
And when you click that button -- again, this is only available on Monday or Tuesday! -- you'll see your choice to view either the upcoming ad, or the ad that is almost finished.
Your screen will look something like this:
Then just click on the front page of the ad, and you can browse the entire thing!
This is how I get the ad recap completed and out to readers so early -- I just make a habit of pulling up the previous week's email first thing on Monday, and start comparing upcoming sales to my coupon database.
That head start is useful for several different reasons -- it gives you more time to track down coupons for good deals, it helps you budget for your weekly spending, or you have time to even place a special order with your HEB!
Now, I will still continue to do the weekly ad recaps for readers, so you don't have to take these extra steps to stay on top of upcoming deals at HEB.
But I know some of you really like to scope out the entire ad in advance, and now you can!
