Shopping with children? Stop by customer service for a Kids Club coupon good for a free organic apple, organic fruit leather or natural animal crackers.

Monthly educational workshops like cooking classes and art activities are also offered through the Kids Club. Check your store’s events calendar.

10. Use common sense

Whole Foods might not be considered a traditional grocery store, but traditional money-saving common sense still applies.

So you should still comparison shop and make a grocery list and stick to it, for example. And pay with a rewards credit card, or look for discounted gift cards on reputable exchanges like Raise.com and Cardpool.com.

You can also use some of the same rebate apps like Ibotta that you use at more traditional grocery stores. To learn more about Ibotta and similar apps, check out “9 Ways Your Phone Can Slash Grocery Costs.”

Of course, remember that experts like the nonprofit Consumer Reports and Stanford University researchers have concluded that not all organic produce is worth the higher price. For specifics, check out “10 Foods You Shouldn’t Buy Organic — and 12 You Should.”
