54% Off 90/10 Ground Turkey from Zaycon Fresh

You’ve heard me gush about Zaycon Fresh, and I’ll keep gushing about it. Especially when I see these amazing prices. Better than grocery store prices! And amazing quality too!

I love this company, their products and the fact that I can ‘drive through’ on my way home from picking up the boys from school and have delicious, quality meat to use/prepare and get into the freezer.

To take advantage of this 90/10 Ground Turkey deal:

  • Sign Up for Zaycon Fresh
  • Find a pick-up location near you and select the ground turkey product
  • Use Code: TURKDEAL when you checkout —> makes it $1.87/lb! (Whoa, I know!)
  • Add reminder to your calendar for your pick-up time and location…don’t worry, they will remind you too!
  • Deal expires 4/20 at midnight EST…so don’t wait in getting your order in!

This code (TURKDEAL) will bring the total for the ground turkey, bringing the total price down to $1.87/lb. <—– THAT IS AN AMAZING DEAL!!!

Now, while you wait for your ground turkey to arrive, I HIGHLY recommend getting set up with a MyFreezEasy membership so that you can create/build a meal plan for the ground turkey (use the ground beef recipes!) that you purchase, that will soon be yours!

You will THANK YOURSELF, if you set up all of this ground turkey you received as meals vs. just throwing it into the freezer without any meal prep.

With the MyFreezEasy membership, you can pick from all of the different ground turkey meals that we have available – set up your meal plan with your Zaycon order in mind, print out the shopping lists. Then, the day before your Zaycon Fresh order pickup, I would go shopping for the other ingredients you need to make all these ground turkey meals for your freezer. MyFreezEasy has done all of the work for you!

Earn Gift Cards from Grocery Shopping?? YUP! #GroceryWinning #Shopkick

Yes, you read that right…you can earn gift cards now from grocery shopping!

Shopkick is a great app that’s been around a few years and recently made it easier to earn gift cards from your grocery store purchases. You’re already shopping, so you might as well take advantage and earn some gift cards, yes??

It’s super easy to use and since you already have your phone in hand or close by, you can find the products to scan and start earning!

To earn “kicks” (Shopkick’s point system) just open the app and see the stores closest to you. Kicks are awarded for walking into stores, scanning items and purchasing items. You earn more for the purchases and your ‘kicks’ quickly add up. Then, you can redeem them for gift cards to Target, Starbucks and more! (I’m saving up for Starbucks gift cards to treat myself to some delicious java!)

Today, Shopkick offers more ways to earn kicks at your favorite grocery store!!!

They have a large product assortment for both scan kicks and purchase kicks, and they also have the option to watch videos to earn.

I know that I’m guilty of ‘mindless scrolling’ on my phone…and if you can take a sliver of that mindless scroll time and use it instead to get your kicks set up and start earning, you’ll be on your way to savings!

More grocery stores provide shoppers more opportunities to earn free gift cards while grocery shopping every day. In the first few months of these features (today through early July), shoppers have the opportunity to collect more than a billion kicks at 37,000 grocery stores nationwide!

I know that I was impressed with the variety and options in the app…it wasn’t for the ‘same old products’ that you see other savings opportunities for. (And Sister Schubert’s bread…droolworthy!)

With Shopkick’s new grocery features, you’ll be able to:

  • Discover new products: Discover products with kicks at nearby grocery stores and add them to shopping lists
  • Create shopping lists: Stay organized and discover kicks for the everyday items you add to your shopping list
  • Get rewarded for trying new recipes: Be inspired with exciting new recipes and add ingredients with kicks to your shopping list

It’s as simple as 1-2-3…

Scan, Buy, and Submit Receipts: Earn tons more kicks when you scan and buy grocery offers and then submit a receipt to earn kicks from what you purchased!

Scanning: scan barcodes of items in the store to earn kicks. Purchase not requird.

Purchasing: earn extra kicks for products you purchased.

Videos: watch videos to get kicks added to your account.

If you want to have more FUN in the grocery store, Shopkick is the way to do that! These new grocery savings options help you (and your kids!!) to ‘gamify’ the grocery shopping experience!

It will help keep kids entertained, help them go on a “treasure hunt” for the kicks – as they look for the products that are in the app and they scan them. Also, there are some great lessons to teach kiddos about saving money on groceries and earning rewards. Let them have a piece of the reward (gift cards earned!) and they’ll be more inclined to play along 😉

(At least my boys are!!)

This is WIN-WIN when shopping with kids!

Lastly, they have an invite a friend feature to help you earn kicks faster! If you want to try Shopkick, here is my invite code for you>>>>>>> Join Shopkick with Erin

Get Shopkick downloaded now and start earning gift cards from your grocery shopping!

It only takes a few minutes to set up your account and get started! Happy gift card earning 🙂

Disclosure: Shopkick is a $5 Dinners partner and this post was sponsored by them. Opinions are my own. And yes, my boys love to scan for kicks!
