Weekend plans: Pick n Pay and Checkers' big special and discount weekend

You can do a whole lot of saving and shopping!

Grocery Shopping

We all know that a certain savings card for a certain shop is always a good idea. So like the Clicks card, for example. 

Checkers have their Xtra Savings card and they are hoping for people to sign up for it.

How are they going to make consumers get it? By having a huge discount sale that only applies if you have the card. They have dubbed this weekend the 'Inaugural Xtra Xtra Weekend' with discounts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Now it came as a surprise finding out that the competition was doing the same thing. 

Pick n Pay is calling theirs the 'Smart Sale' for Smart Shopper card holders. It began on Thursday, and also runs until Sunday, 17 October.

So it is absolutely vital that you have the special cards for each of the shops. If you don't have one, this is that time to get your groceries at a cheaper price. 

Here are some of our favourite specials from Checkers and Pick n Pay this weekend! 

- Long-life milk at between R11 and R12 per litre

- Toilet paper at a bit over R4 per roll

Pick n Pay is selling its house-brand 9s packs of 2-ply toilet paper at R75 for two, at an effective price of R4.17 per roll for the minimum you'll have to buy.  At Checkers it is the Baby Soft brand of toilet paper on special, and you'll have to buy three packs of 9s, for R120. That is an effective R4.44 per roll for the 27 minimum.
