To most people, savings mean money. At Giant Eagle, we go beyond just cutting dollars to help you save time, energy and the environment.
Save on Food
- Enlist your children for help. Have them help plan menus, and on your shopping trips ask them to check prices, look for coupons and find items on sale.
- Follow fuel-smart practices such as properly inflating tires, observing speed limits and using cruise control.
- Combine errands into one trip when possible. Take advantage of our in-store services such as Giant Eagle Pharmacy®, Dress for Success® dry cleaning, photo services, banking and more.
- Cook and eat at home more to reduce dining out, take-outs and home delivery. Economical prepared foods, like our rotisserie chicken and salad bar, make a nice, quick meal on nights when you shop.
- Scan your Giant Eagle Advantage Card on every purchase to earn fuelperks!® for savings on your fuel purchases at GetGo®.
- Stock your pantry with basic foods that can “transform” yesterday's leftovers into an exciting new dish: frozen or canned vegetables and fruit, noodles, rice, pasta, soup, basic spices and herbs like cinnamon, basil, oregano and broth or stock (beef, chicken or vegetable).
- Keep quick meals such as chili, soup, casseroles, shredded cooked chicken or other meats (for wraps, grilled sandwiches or barbecue sauce), meatballs and pasta sauce on hand.
- Keep a supply of freezer bags and containers for freezing extra meals and leftovers. Freeze in microwave-safe containers for fast defrosting.
- Planned leftovers are huge time savers! Tonight's ground beef makes a meatloaf or meatballs; tomorrow it's crumbled into chili, sloppy Joes or vegetable soup!
- Use our online Menu Planner and Shopping List to save time on your shopping trips.
