Glendora Vegeterian Club

My friend Phil is so good with coupons the store often has to give him credit to buy something else. We saw one of his countings where in one year he had redeemed over $400 in coupons. Since COVID stores have moved to providing digital coupons through apps which actually can be used more than once. Phil says that some supermarkets have a display of vegan products in the produce department. Ibotta and Fetch are apps through which you can get rebates. Stock up when prices are low. The best ways to enjoy couponing is to enjoy cooking. If you have suggestions about a product, contact the company. They welcome feedback.

Note: Starbucks now offers plant based nuggets.
