Wow...Bristol certainly has looked into this a lot (polite comment).

All I know is that the app searches flyers. You have to enter your location at some point and it searches the flyers within your area. In Ottawa it searches Maxi which is a QC chain not even in Ottawa but it has the lower prices at times which I've managed to benefit from. I think it only searches the chain wide prices not individual store location time sensitive prices.

I know that Costco or Farm Boy don't price match. Real Canadian Super Store is where I've used it.

The one time I went to New France I drove into Montreal on Easter Sunday afternoon and was able to buy 6 cold Brador at the corner store cheaper than I could get a 6-pack in the liquor store in Regina.

Not at all...it's just something that occurred to me. It really doesn't even need that much thought. You know, you see conditions and exclusions on these things all the time.

Shoppers DM will advertise bonus points but then it excludes prescriptions, lottery tickets, bus passes; Amazon does free delivery if over $35 but that's the pre-tax price and sometimes it's only a free delivery as a second item but only to certain first items; Other offers cannot be combined.

Then on the shelf in the store there's two sizes and one is twice the size but in a different store the bigger size isn't twice the size. Isn't all this the reason for the price per 100g label? Because people want to know?

I'm just converting that to how it may work on an app.

It's great that the app does it all for you and it's better than spending more than you have to.

Reporting back: the price-matching on chicken & eggs was easy and fast: started to pull out flyers & explain, cashier nodded & waved them away and it was done. Much easier and faster (for me) than with daughter’s app thingie.

Walmart also had 3 in-store unadvertised specials that I took advantage of: turkey (with giblets) @10$ each, Oka & St-Paulin cheese at 3/10$ (usually 5-6$ each), butter @2$/lb.

Add apples, turnip & mushrooms from the “must get rid of today” shelves as well as everything else on my list and I emerged with a month’s worth of food for 98$. That includes ‘feeding the freezer’.

On a less self-satisfied note: They’ve removed half the checkouts and replaced them with 6 self-checkout machines The staff are clearly - and rightfully - not happy & worried.

No fair!!! I love that stuff, just on its own with coffee.
It's almost as good as Port Salut which I used to be able to get here but can't anymore.

In Superstore today - never seen it before.

This is an extra mature cheddar with a sweet, tangy taste. It is carefully matured for up to 18 months and made by expert cheese makers at the Taw Valley Creamery in Devon.
Loads of individual blocks by weight, different wrapping, all half price. Yummy.

No Frills has pork shoulders on for $1/lb (bought a 10 lb'er), and family pack sausages are on sale too. I only went in for a nappa cabbage and a cucumber and daikon to make kimchi with but ended up spending about $25. They didn't have any daikon so I had to go to Wholesale Club after anyway.

Arghhh! What I would give for some proper cave aged cheddar.... Godminster... hmmm. Moving from Cheddar to the land of plastic 'cheese' has been a shock!

Tickler at 1/2 price sounded too good to be true for BC.

I brought some back from Wookey last year, it was delicious and only eaten on ceremony

I don't like cheese. It's really just gone off milk.
