Does someone you know suffer from Celiac disease or from food allergies? Our fab reader Tama has a daughter that does. She attended our class a couple weeks ago and asked if we knew of a resource or site that had coupons specifically for Gluten Free food. We were sad to say we didn’t know of anything.
About a week or so later, Tama sent us this email:
I spoke with you ladies after a class you did in Nampa about gluten/allergen-free coupon sites. I found one that you may want to put in your arsenal, should anyone ask for advice on the same thing in the future. Be Free for Me – You have to sign up for their email/mail newsletters, which will contain current deals/coupons they have found. Although it is in the beginning stages, I hope more GF and other allergen-free people will start supporting and contributing to the site. In my own (very young) couponing efforts, I have been separating out coupons/deals that apply specifically to GF products, so I can more easily plan my meals and food storage. I am hoping to start a simple facebook page for now that will be a resource to other GF moms out there that want to save money, by posting the coupons/deals I have found. Your site, obviously, has become invaluable to me in seeking out these specific product deals and matchups. THANK YOU!!!!!
Anywhoo, thanks for all your help to all of us. I just thought I would pass this along. Specialty foods for people with allergies can be VERY expensive ($8.99 for a loaf of bread), so I hope I can find a way to be a resource to others in my situation, so they can find the “regular” items at a discount that are gluten-free. For example, finding GF beef broth is next to impossible (WHY they need to put wheat in beef broth and soy sauce, I don’t know!), but in the Albertson’s deal this week, I ended up getting the Progresso 32 oz GLUTEN-FREE broth for less than .50/each after all the coupons and catalinas. I bought several! GF beef broth in the specialty stores is around $3.00/can, for the regular small can size. Deals like these can make a huge difference in the budget of a family dealing with various allergies amongst their children.
Thanks again for all your hard work, and your incredibly contagious attitudes about couponing!!
