On a 10%/5% Tuesday at Sobeys, today's $avvy $hopper example:
  • is a card carrying member of Club Sobeys Rewards Program;
      (Necessary to receive both the 10% and 5% Tuesday discounts.)
  • has accumulated enough points to make a $30.00 redemption;
        (3,750 points)
  • has prepared his/her shopping list, matching available coupons to current flyer sales;
  • has calculated his/her total purchase, prior to coupon discounts and excluding all applicable deposits, environmental fees and taxes to be exactly $50.00; 
        (This IS only an example remember! lol)
        (Both the 10% and the 5% discount figures are arrived at by using the transaction total BEFORE coupon discounts and 
        EXCLUDING bottle deposits, environmental handling fees [EHC] and applicable taxes [G.S.T.])
  • has computed his/her coupon discount savings to be 30% of that $50.00;
        (30% is generally considered a common savings average - this is assuming today's $avvy $hopper has built up his/her
        coupon inventory & flyer products are a regular stocked product.)
  •  sat back and looked at the picture!!
