Tops Markets is a great grocery store chain for a number of reasons. First of all, there are so many great ways to save. Whether you simply get the store card or save on gas, you’ll love how you can get the food and supplies you need without spending a fortune. Let’s take a closer look at how to shop at Tops Markets.

Get the BonusPlus Card

First things first. You need to sign up to get the BonusPlus Card. This is easy to do right in the store. You can also go online to download the simple application, fill it out, and bring it to any customer service desk. This card is like any of the other loyalty cards you have at a number of other stores. All you need to do to get your savings each week is scan your card at the register as you check out.

Clip Coupons to Your Card

Another perk to having the BonusPlus card is that you can go to the Tops Markets website and easily clip store and manufacturer coupons to your card. There’s no printing and having to keep up with your coupons. This is such a time-saver!  Remember to read the store’s coupon policy on how you can match store coupons with manufacturer’s coupons. You can also find examples of how to properly use store and manufacturer coupons together at Tops (including digital) in this post.

Double Manufacturers’ Coupons

Tops will double your paper manufacturers’ coupons that are $0.99 or less in value every day!  This is done automatically when you scan your coupons and use your BonusPlus Card.  At certain times throughout the year, we see Dollar Doubler coupons, which are paper coupons found in the ad or available to print online.  You can use these to double your manufacturers’ coupons that are $1.00 in value, for $2.00 in savings!

Save on Gas

If you’re shopping at Tops Markets, it only makes sense to get your gas there. During special promotional periods, you can earn points that can be used to save on gas, called Bonus GasPoints. You earn points by shopping (1 point per $1 spent), using coupons (10 points per coupon with a max of 100 points, or 10 coupons, per transaction), and through special promos. For example, buy 6 participating items and you will receive 200 Bonus GasPoints, worth $0.20 off per gallon of gas at fill-up.  Note there is a maximum of 25 gallons per gas that can be redeemed using gas points.

Take Advantage of Special Programs

Last, but not least, there are so many special programs you can take advantage of. On the first Tuesday of each month, those 60 and over can save 6% off their grocery and prescription totals. Parents will love the free diapers program. When you buy diapers at Tops Markets, you’ll earn 1 point per $1 spent. Once you reach 100 points, you’ll get a $20 coupon to use on your next purchase of diapers. Tops Markets also has a Monopoly-style game similar to McDonald’s. Your child can even get a free cake on their first birthday or a piece of free fresh fruit while you shop in-store! TOPS In Education is a program that makes it easier to get additional money for your school programs. You register your TOPS BonusPlus® for your school(s) of choice and buy participating products to earn money for your school(s). There are so many special programs and always something new popping up. Grab your local sales paper each week or visit to stay informed.  And of course, be sure to follow WNY Deals and To Dos where we show you how to save even more each week at Tops!
