A friend of mine, who was my roommate a while back, introduce me to the fun of flyers over five years ago. Fast forward and I have to say that I’m like a little kid come Thursday night. The local newspaper arrives filled with flyers. I look through each one and before I know it, they’re scattered all over the floor. Most recently, my son has joined my hobby. Of course, he’s mostly interested in the Toys R Us flyer or any flyer that has toys in them.
While I despise couponing, I love flyers. I love comparing the deals the various companies have and seeing what I may need / want that I haven’t realized I needed yet. To say the least, Friday is definitely my favourite shopping day.
However, what I hate is going into a store, and asking the employees there if the item I’m holding in my hand is the one advertised in their flyer and getting a stare blank back from them. To be fair, they’re not paid enough to remember the weekly flyer by heart (I guess), but it’s frustrating as a shopper. ENTER FLYERFLO.
FlyerFlo is a great new free app for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch that allows you to view all of the weekly flyers of your local stores with the touch of your finger. No more schlepping around flyers with you to the store and no more memorizing the deals. You can access all of your favourite deals from your favourite companies immediately.
I was so excited to try out FlyerFlo that I downloaded it immediately on our iPad and my husband’s iPhone. Lo and behold, all of my favourite flyers were easily accessible including Costco, Metro, Canadian Tire, and Walmart. My husband had to pry his phone away from me as I was so into it. I think my print flyers are in trouble… not to mention, this is more environmentally friendly. Lets be honest, everything is moving towards a paperless society for several reasons. So it’s time we all embrace this new reality. What are you waiting for… download this app immediately! I promise that you will fall in love with it.
As a stay-at-home parent (or for any parent really), there’s nothing more important than saving money on your must-have and favourite products. FlyerFlo provides me with all of that and more.

7. If I won the $50 Metro Gift Card I would use it to buy baking supplies as I’m an avid baker, and it becomes expensive to keep up the hobby on a student’s budget!
I wish I knew how to bake. good-luck
I would use the 50 to buy crab! My son has just turned 13 and is eating me out of house and home that is why i am using flyer flo now! Lol crab is his favorite food

I heart flyers. My mailbox says ‘more flyers please’
I am happy to now have them digitally with this app. I have completed 1 2 3 4 5 and am attempting to learn to cook while on mat leave so I would buy groceries with the gift card. (And prepared food to replace the potentially burnt dinner I prepared. )
haha. I think you’re on to something re: more flyers please. good-luck
I have completed 1 and 7.
I would buy more baking supplies because I’m trying to get away from buying over packaged over processed lunch snacks for the hubby 🙂
I want to learn how to bake. ur already one step ahead of me. good-luck
If I were to win, all I’d want is to have my grocery bill paid for whether part or all of it!…not looking for anything different just the bill paid for, that’s all! Thanks!
