A little background before you read Part 7 in my Insider’s Series to Shopping at Whole Foods: I started working for Whole Foods Market in 2007. I worked off and on for the company at multiple stores throughout California until last year. I’m sharing all the tips, tricks, and strategies I learned during my time at the grocery store so you can learn to shop and save there, too.

It’s punch time. In case you didn’t know already, Whole Foods is full of punch cards—buy ten burritos or sandwiches from the prepared foods counter and get your next one for free. When you buy $100 worth of 365 supplements, you get $10 off of your next purchase. Some stores also have sushi and coffee cards.

If you happen to go out to lunch often, why not pick up a sandwich or burrito from Whole Foods and work your way to a free lunch? Or if you are an avid supplement buyer, that $10 off can really come in handy.

The next time that you find yourself in Whole Foods, go to Customer Service or ask your cashier what punch cards are available. Typically, you can only receive a punch card when buying that particular item, but it’s always good to know what your options are beforehand. And if you know that your store offers cards for whatever you are buying, but your cashier doesn’t give you a card—just ask. Nicely.
