Knowing what is a good deal and what isn't can sometimes be a very difficult thing to do! The Bargain Blessings Deal Grading system is intended to help you do just that!

A: Great Deal! Consider stocking up.
B: Good Deal
C: Ok deal, buy it if you need it.
D: Hold off if you are able to.
F: Don't waste your money...a better price will be here soon.

Please keep in mind that your target price is unique to each individual and family. As your stockpile grows you can aim for a higher grade!

Did you decide to no longer grade the sales? I have missed them!

I’m not able to open the grading system. Can you send me the link?

How do you determine if it’s a good deal or not? Do you have a buy price list that you go by, or is it in your head?

Hi Nina~ It is a combination of both. :)

That was a very comprehensive survey I just took. I hope I win one of the prizes!

What about using your grading system with colored text so you visually see the great, good and not so good deals immediately. If you are needing to stock up you can browse quickly to the ‘green’ deals, the ‘A’s. I know there are lots of colors for text and the ‘red’ deals, the ‘F’s, can be quickly passed by for those months when there is no ‘extra’ $ to stock up!

Where is the deal grading system used? I think it’s a wonderful idea!!

Hi Susie~ You can find the grading system on all grocery store deals. :)

I really like the grading system! I live in Colorado too and am ecstatic to see Safeway and King Soopers on here. Thanks for all your help!

I'm LOVING this grading system. I thought I'd check out your blog…VERY NICE! I'm in Northern California and we have Safeway so I'm very interested in your match-ups!! Thanks for all your time!!

Sure! How ever you would like to put it. I'm just trying to make it easier for everyone to scroll through quickly to see the deals! :)
