You’ll need to sign up for the VG’s Yes Rewards Program in the store, then register your card online. With the card, you’ll collect points (displayed on the bottom of your receipt) with each purchase that can be redeemed on various items each month. The Yes Card is required to receive advertised sale prices at VG’s.

VG’s offers a $0.05 reusable bag credit per bag you bring. You may have to remind your cashier, however, as the credit is not automatic.

You’ll find printable Spartan coupons at the Turn to Spartan website. You’ll need to register first. Coupons will NOT double, but they could stretch your savings on Spartan brands even further.

Save your receipts – as part of VG’s Community Share Program, they can benefit non-profit groups in Michigan. You don’t need to sign up; simply find a participating group and submit your receipts. Trinity Lutheran Church in Utica uses the Community Share Program to purchase socks for the homeless. You can leave your receipts at the front desk there if you can’t find another organization.

  1. 1

    Denise says

    YoCrunch link takes you to a .25 off 1 coupon. I prefer the $1/4 because my store doubles dollars but now everyone can get free.

  2. 2

    Heather says

    It looks like the link to the $1 off 4 YoCrunch is gone. You can still print a $.50 cent coupon though and get 1 for free.

    Shelley J says
