Swiss supermarket newsletters online

We have recently decided to cut down on the vast amounts of paper that we recycle by reading supermarket newsletters online. I have a vague recollection of an online site that collated the newsletters for at least 8 Swiss supermarkets which made the weekly job of searching all the offers very easy.

Anyone know the URL of this site please?

Rather overwhelming. Time is a valuable good as well, you know.

Re: Swiss supermarket newsletters online

Many thanks for the quick response. I think this is the site I remember from a few years ago, though I thought it included Migros and the Coop. Your Google search was better than mine because my search terms did not give me the correct URL.

Problem solved thanks.

Re: Swiss supermarket newsletters online

Triceratops, tell me, is it worth going through all this information and then travel from shop to shop to get the cheapest of what you need? (And how much stuff do you buy which you don't need just because it's cheaper?)

I mean, those websites - which I didn't even know of before you asked for them - are definitely saving time but still .....
Does it really add up if you get the pork 2 franks cheaper in one shop and the broccoli cheaper in an other, including all the travel I mean? Even if you freeze it all?

My grandmother used to do that - walking, not driving - I remember it from when I was a child, walking along with her. But she has during the war and could never stop herself from doing it after.

PS: I'm asking, not mocking.
