[Bulk Barn] Bulk Barn (save 25%) Reuseable Container Program

Not sure how it would work but I assume you have to have them weigh your container empty and then weight it once you make your purchase?

Seems like a nice promo. Discount is decent.

Yes that's correct. They'll weigh just your container first. make sure you approach a cashier before you start shopping

Not worth the hassle since it doesn't stack with other discounts.

It's not too much extra hassle. Deal is good for things you want but aren't particularly on sale at the time you're there. You just give them your container(s) and they markup the weights on them. Takes like 30 seconds. Also, for the environmental warriors it helps save some plastic bag waste.

People can scoop stuff in theirs and if it’s too much they scoop it back into the bulk barn bin. Perfect way to get cross contamination’s

At least Bulk Barn is trying. We've got to do something about single use packaging. Making excuses as to why you can't doesn't help. We've been using this method for a while.and it works great.

I haven't seen bulk barn $3 off $10 in sometime. Have they stopped giving the coupon or I missed out?
BTW, I fully support any efforts made towards environment preservation even if brings some hassle.

Ya it works good if people wash containers. But with the 1% of idiots out there, it'll ruin it for everyone or get someone sick.

In the last couple of months it has been more of $5 off $20 so basically 25% off.

I have not seen the $3 for $10 in a while too unfortunately.

Bought $130 worth of organic stuff I use to make a cereal mix and came to $100. For some of the higher price items you can’t find anywhere else it’s awesome.

It’s best to bring same containers to reduce weighting all of the containers one after another at the store front. Yes cross contamination can happen but as long as your not allergic then overall risk is small. At least in my eyes.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

To grow up in a society where we worry about "cross contamination" with containers at BULK BARN, which is the exact reason why so many people have less than ideal immune systems.

I don't deny the fact that it is possible some one in a million person will use a container that they used to store raw pork in and didn't clean properly, but I think that's where the cashiers come in
