Are you brand loyal at the grocery store?
« on: January 05, 2012, 11:01:24 am »
I use coupons whenever I can find them.  Most of the coupons are for national brands.  Sometimes it is cheaper to buy the big brand, with the coupon, than the store brand.  I am not very brand loyal with my groceries.  I will buy whichever is the best buy.  I have one exception and it is for a brand of early baby peas.

I find that most of the name brand items at the stores are packed full of preservatives, artificial colors and flavors, and hydrogenated oils. I try to pick things that are as close to nature as possible. I do a lot of shopping at Trader Joes and Whole Foods Market. Also I save a bunch of money by shopping at Trader Joes. They are so fair with pricing.  :thumbsup:

I'm only brand loyal with a few things:  Heinz Ketchup, Best Foods Mayo, Steinfeld Pickles and Angel Soft or MD toilet tissue.  Most other things I find store brands just as good. :wave: :wave:

If it's the same type of product, I'll buy which ever product has the lower price.  Sometimes store brands has a lower price and sometimes they don't.

No I buy the cheapest available.  Sometimes it's a brand name sometimes not.  Whatever is cheap or on sale I will buy no matter what the brand.

I'm only loyal to particular things if I find I dislike the other ones.  I typically will try the cheapest option and if I like it, I stick with it.

Only on a few items but usually I buy whatever is least expensive as long as it's a decent item.

I try not to be but ultimately yes I am brand loyal.  In particular, I am loyal to the brands my mother introduced me to as a child.

I'm a major user of coupons too.

I'm not really brand loyal, I just use whatever works. Sometimes the store brand works better and sometimes it doesn't.

I used to but with having to walk blocks to the first discount store and its 12 to the name brand store.  I choose to use the discount grocery store.  Yes you pay more for meat and fresh produce but in other things you save.

some things yes, most things no.

lunchmeat, cheese, juice, ranch dressing can all taste
very different depending on the brand, so i usually stick
to the name brand (or the brand i like the best, which isn't
always "name")

no to mostly everything else! not too picky... just have
my favorites.
